Saturday Matinee – Android 207, Talking Heads, Tito Larriva, Johnny Nash & Krosfyah

Saturday, 10 October 2020

Android 207 is a fun stop-motion from Carrotkid (Paul Whittington). In 2007, the film received the Best Film, Best Technical and People’s Choice awards at the Vancouver Island Short Film Festival. I’ve posted it before, and it’s still one of my favorites.

Classic Talking Heads video won “Best Group Video” at the MTV Video Music Awards in 1987. I probably posted it before also – I couldn’t find a live version of …oh wait, just found one.

Tito Larriva plays Radio Head in the movie TRUE Stories (1986). Larriva was a founding member of The Plugz.

Lost another great talent this week. Johnny Nash (1940-2020) was born in Houston, Texas, but moved to Jamaica in 1965, where rocksteady was big and reggae was just beginning to gain in popularity. Video is from Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, 1968.

Krosfyah‘s single Pump Me Up (1995) was a hit in Barbados, went gold in Canada. Great Soca.

That’s a wrap, at least for now. See you tomorrow and we’ll mess with stuff.

Saturday Matinee – Charlie Musselwhite with Ben Harper, Walter Trout with Joe Bonamassa, & Anders Osborne

Saturday, 4 March 2017

Great jam from 2013 with Ben Harper and Charlie Musselwhite.

Walter Trout kicks Joe Bonamassa loose at the Winter Park “Blues From The Top” music festival in 2007.

Anders Osborne slides into Swamp/Soca/Reggae mashup with a nice groove.

Great stuff to rock you for a while. Have a great weekend, folks, and we’ll be back tomorrow whether you like it or not.
