Interlucational Hot Links

Oh My Lover, The Chiffons (1963) Throughout rock and roll history, vocal groups have spent entire careers in search of hit bound melodies and captivating lyrics. In the reverse of that equation, the Chiffons garnered their greatest success because a hit song was in search of a group.” That song was not it. Their cover of Tonight’s The Night was.

Saturday Matinee – Glenn Marshall / Fractal Forest, The Ramones, The Brothers Comatose & Sue Foley

AI meets Mandelbrot, and the results are beautiful, serene – and distubing. Computer artistry by Glenn Marshall, based upon a 3D Appolonian fractal animation by Inigo Quilez.

Here’s a palette cleanser. The Ramones.

The Brothers Comatose crank out denim trenchcoat bluegrass.

Think premium leaded Fabulous Thunderbirds with SRV. Sue Foley is an amazing blues rocker out of Austin, Texas.

Got a lot going on these days, and even more to worry about if I really wanted to bother, so maybe I’ll just have fun instead. See you tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Cyriak Harris, Hubert Sumlin & Sunnyland Slim, and Scott H. Biram

Cyriak Harris strikes again with a music video for the band Light.
[via Ms. Cellanea].

Hubert Sumlin & Sunnyland Slim (with Willie Dixon on bass & Clifton James on drums) from The Stars of the 1964 American Folk Blues Festival, a German television program. Sonny Boy Williamson II did the introduction.

Scott H. Biram is a one-man ass-kickin’ rock machine. (Reposted from about ten years ago).

I’m yawning, gotta go, see you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Raoul Servais, Doo Rag, Flat Duo Jets & Raskahuele

Harpya, by Belgian animator and filmmaker Raoul Servais, is based upon C.L. Moore’s 1933  creepy short story Shambleau.

Music video for the song Trudge by Tucson, Arizona duo Doo Rag, shot on 35mm film. Pure roots blues industrial punk is kinda hard on the earballs, but I like it.

Flat Duo Jets  performed a cover of Benny Joy’s Wild Wild Lover on Letterman in 1990, with backup by Paul Schaefer’s Late Night band. Don’t know how I missed these psychobillies. Dexter Romweber was/is an animal.
[h/t Gord S for both Doo Rag & FDJ.]

L.A.’s Raskahuele is tight  My Spanish is too slow to translate, but sometimes I don’t need to know the words.

Have a great weekend, see you back here tomorrow, at least for a while.

Saturday Matinee – Vi Hart, Otros Aires, The Head Cat & Gunhild Carling

Vi Hart has put together some amazing videos over the years – her series Doodling in Math Class is excellent. [h/t Memo Of The Air]

Argentine tango in black and white.
Otros Aires is a 21 Century Audiovisual ElectroTango project created,  produced and directed by the Argentinean musician, architect & video artist Miguel Di Genova. It was made between Barcelona and Buenos Aires ports in 2003.

Meanest cover of Dale HawkinsSusie-Q  I’ve ever heard.
The Head Cat, live at The Key Club, West Hollywood, California, May 6th, 2010, consisted of Slim Jim Phantom (Stray Cats) Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead) & Danny B. Harvey (Rockats). Lemmy died in 2015 at the age of 70 and was replaced by David Vincent (Morbid Angel).

Gunhild Carling is amazing. Someone told her the bag pipes are a musical instrument so she played them.

Happy New Year to all, and let’s hope the insanity abates in 2023.

Saturday Matinee – Sam Butera & The Witnesses, Ry Cooder, and Miles Davis w/ Robben Ford & Bob Berg

Sam Butera & The Witnesses (1964).

Written by Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman, Elvis scored a hit in 1961 with Little Sister in 1961, but Ry Cooder‘s 1982 version is my favorite.

New Blues, Miles Davis w/ Robben Ford & Bob Berg (1986).
Don’t be fooled -it starts out slow then sneaks up behind you and kicks you in the head. Ford steps in at about 3:00.

Have a great weekend, see you back here tomorrow and we’ll talk it over.

Decaudating Hot Links

Rocket To Nowhere, Webb Wilder (2005) All you need to know:
Mississippi Musician Hall of Fame icon Webb Wilder pleases and shocks, soothes and rocks, and meets every un-expectation. Equally versed in two glorious worlds, Rock and Roll – with a strong side of Outlaw Country (Webb prefers the term “PROGRESSIVE Country”). He is a force on tour, and a tour de force. He is the Last of the Full Grown Men, as well as Roots Rock Royalty.”

Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On, Big Maybelle Smith (1955) Mabel Smith began recording in 1947 when she was 23 years old, yet she’d been singing in various venues since she was a child. She was the first to record Whole Lotta Shakin’ Goin’ On, produced and arranged by a young Quincy Jones for Okeh Records, and predating Jerry Lee Lewis’ version by almost two years. (Lewis liked the song so much he stole it, then credited Big Mama Thornton.)
