Fatty Patty, Lee Pickett & The Screamers (1958)
Lee Pickett (rhythm guitar and slap bass) joined up with Marvin Ross (lead guitar) and Paul Jennings (drums) and recorded Fatty Patty and She Left Me With The Blues in a Denver basement. Marvin recalled, “We only used ‘Lee Pickett & The Screamers’ for that one record & a few promotional bookings. Jolt Records picked the name for us, but by then we had taken the name of the Blue Rhythms.”
Ruth Norman (1900-1993) was the gilded leader of “Unarius,” a UFO cult founded with her husband Ernest in 1954. Ruth was not only a figurehead for “interdimensional understanding” but a master at putting together looks fit for an intergalactic space queen.

Inspired by a version of the opening sequence of this clip called ‘What does it feel like to fly over planet Earth?’, I tracked down the original time-lapse sequence taken on the International Space Station (ISS) via NASA, found some additional ones there, including the spectacular Aurora Australis sequences, and set it to a soundtrack that almost matches the awe and wonder I feel when I see our home from above.
part theater, part revival, part frat party, part mardi gras. you will be forever changed after a CM show, whether fred sprays you with sweat, tosses you a drum stick, snarls-smiles, exhorts you to leap, sing or get down. its a jolt of energy. you wont need caffeine for days.
