Saturday Matinee – Gene Chandler, Earth Angels & Samantha Fish with John Long

Saturday, 16 February 2019

Gene Chandler was still doing retro doo-wop in the early ’60s. Then there’s these guys whose cover was kinda embarrassing, but good at the same time.

Yeah, that stuff is stuff, but this stuff is better.

Sam Fish cranks it, and that hoser on her right [Jonathan Long] could barely keep up. Love it.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for more fun.

Saturday Matinee – Vulfpeck, Lettuce Funk & Curtis Mayfield

Saturday, 26 January 2019

Vulfpeck has a cool funk/jazz groove, reminds me of Weather Report, except these guys make ridiculous “I’m About To Pop A Nut” faces while they jam.

Lettuce [aka Lettuce Funk] combines retro funk with retro future funk, and it works.

Jump to 5:08 for the Kansas Joe & Memphis Minnie / Led Zeppelin funk mashup. (I hear some of Zappa’s “I Am The Slime” in there, too.) Lettuce even had the cojones to cover Curtis Mayfield, and they did him right.

Poor video quality, but the audio is good. Here’s Curtis Mayfield’s original “Move On Up” (with German subtitles).

Have a great weekend, folks, and Move On Up wit yo bad sef. See you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Steel Shredder, Egg Cracker, Android 207, Tom Waits & Pink Floyd

Saturday, 19 January 2019

Not sure why, but this kind of stuff fascinates me.

Egg-breaking machine complete with egg-breaking porn soundtrack found here.

I ran across Paul Whittington‘s Android 207 a coupla years ago. Seems to fit.

Tom Waits‘ self-accompanied masterpiece “Clang Boom Steam” also seems appropriate.

From the Utoobage description: “The iconic video was created by Gerald Scarfe initially as a backdrop film for when the band [Pink Floyd] played the track on its 1977 In the Flesh tour.”
From the Utoobage comments: “Imagine having to wait 40 years to watch your favorite band’s official videoclip.”

Have a great weekend, folks, and don’t forget that astronomy is gonna happen tomorrow night.

 

Saturday Matinee – Fool-Pitying Life Lessons, Fruit Sounds, The Beat Farmers & The HU Band

Saturday, 12 January 2019

“First name is Mister, middle name is a period, last name is T” [via].

Whoa. What’s that? Click on it to find out.
(Don’t worry, it’s not an advert. – Bunk)

Fruit noises [via]. It’s what my insides sound like at 3AM after eating the good stuff at 6PM.

The Beat Farmers was one helluva fun bar band, and “Blue Chevrolet” was one of my favorite roadtrip songs. I don’t recobanize the lineup except for the Jerry Raney lookalike on vocals and rhythm guitar, and it appears to be a tribute concert at the Belly Up Tavern in 2013. The legendary Country Dick Montana passed away in 1995 while playing drums on “The Girl I Almost Married.”

Never heard Country Dick?
This one’s for you, and so is the next one.


Mongolian folk metal blues band The HU is badass killer. Nope. Not gonna mess with them at all [via].

Have a great weekend folks. See you back here after the earth rotates 360 degrees.

 

 

Saturday Matinee – Doodling In Math Class, Forklift Finesse, Vegetable Music, Funk Mashup & Lillian Reyes

Saturday, 5 January 2019

That’s amazing. A cardioid is an anti-parabola. I never thought of it that way.
I used to do similar doodles, but nothing like hers. Draw a square, divide each line with dots, draw curvy lines top to bottom and right to left, then connect the diagonals and the result is a 2 dimensional wavy cloth. Or you can do dog-chase doodles to do spirals, but those need graphics to explain.

Amazing. Now I wanna see him do it with a Zippo [via].

Amazing. Now I wanna see him do it with meat [via].

Amazing. Now I gotta get up offa that thang.

Amazing R&B vocals featuring Lillian Reyes. I love this stuff.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow for more really important stuff.

Bonus – Old guys singing in a men’s room with great acoustics.

Saturday Matinee – Aluminum & Mercury Amalgamation, Capybara Soul & Leon Redbone

Saturday, 29 December 2018

Okay. I’m impressed. The timelapse is killer.

Eddie Murphy‘s James Brown‘s Capybara Hot Tub is awesome [via].

Everybody needs some Leon once in a while, so there you go.

Have a great holiday weekend, folks, see y’all back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – The Tractors, George Thorogood & The Destroyers, Blaze Bayley w/ Michelle Sciarrotta & The United States Navy Band

Saturday Matinee – Christmas According To Kids

Saturday, 15 December 2018

This is what happens when you ask a bunch of little kids to tell the story of Christmas with adult cameo actors. [Found here. Those below were found by U-Toobage association, and they’re entirely awesome..]

May God bless the innocents.

I wonder what would happen if you asked a bunch of grown-ups…

Saturday Matinee – G-AAH, Billy Strings, Billy Gibbbons & Stéphane Grappelli

Saturday, 8 December 2018

Aviator Amy Johnson was honored with an Underwood typewriter animation.tribute [via]. She achieved worldwide recognition when, in 1930, she became the first woman pilot or aviatrix to fly solo from England to Australia. She flew the G-AAAH Jason, a second-hand trainer airplane.

Billy Strings [h/t windbag].

Billy Gibbons with ratrods [h/t Octopus].

Stéphane Grappelli

Great early morning road trip music back when I was running early morning road trips. 1930s sunrise swing always worked for me.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.
