It’s way beyond my capabilities, and I’m surprised no one walked the poor bastard up the stairs.
Nice find, Jonco.
The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band is always a fun romp, and they have a new album in the works.
Rev. Peyton – Guitar/Vocals
Breezy Peyton – Washboard/Vocals
Sad Max Senteney – Drums/Vocals
The Mighty Mighty Bosstones don’t believe in anything anymore. It’s from their 11th studio album, When God Was Great (2021).
Yep, that’ll do for now. Have a great weekend, watch out for the bugbears and we’ll throw something on the floor to kick around tomorrow.
Yeah, I listened to Mott The Hoople, too, despite the glam rock stuff.
And yeah, I listened to Lou Reed despite his earlier heroin-addled glam rock stuff.
Have a great weekend, folks, come back here tomorrow for more stuff.
P.S. Tomorrow is Fathers’ Day. Do him a favor. Call and say “Hi, Dad,” then leave him alone. He’ll appreciate it. =)
From the UToobage description:
“Though Eddie Cochran was only twenty-one when he died, he left a lasting mark as a rock and roll pioneer. Cochran zeroed in on teenage angst and desire with such classics as ‘C’mon Everybody,’ ‘Something Else,’ ‘Twenty Flight Rock‘ and ‘Summertime Blues.’ A flashy stage dresser with a tough-sounding voice, Cochran epitomized the sound and the stance of the Fifties rebel rocker.”
Lotta covers of that kickass song.
1962 The Beach Boys. A 14 and a 16 year old contributed to this recording.
I heard that version when I was in 6th grade, and tried to decide if I liked it or not. Took me several years before I understood what they were doing, and I decided that I liked the original better. Hell, the name of the band was a brand of LSD named after a laundry detergent.
1975 The Who – According to Wiki they’d been playing Summertime Blues since 1967 so this version is out of chronological order.
1970 T. Rex
1975 Olivia Newton-John
1978 The Rolling Stones
1982 Joan Jett. Hear The Ramones influence?
1987 Alvin & The Chipmunks
1992 Little River Band
2009 The Black Keys
Cheech Marin, The Prophets, Levon Helm, Guitar Wolf, The Flying Lizards, Bobby Vee, The Crickets, Buck Owens, James Taylor, The Ventures, Dick Dale, Robert Gordon with Link Wray, Skid Row, Johnny Hallyday, Brian Setzer, MC5, Alex Chilton, and Marty Wilde have also covered the song.
Y’all can find the the other killer ccvers on your own. Have a great weekend and we’ll see you back here tomorrow.
