Saturday Matinee – Jared Dines, Hillbilly Moon Explosion, The Baboons, Howlin’ Wolf with Willie Dixon

Saturday, 28 July 2018

Jared Dines commissioned the design of a 17-string guitar, paid $1,200 for it, then learned that it was made in China for $400. Pissed him off, so he destroyed it. He then ordered this 18-string from a legit Australian company. Nice catchy tune…

Hillbilly Moon Explosion is interesting. Not too many bands feature Wednesday Addams teaching Lurch how to do The James Brown (at least I think that’s the dance).

The Baboons‘ “It’s Dark” has a solid (but unattributed) Howlin’ Wolf groove, so let’s go there.

That’s Willie Dixon on bass. He wrote, arranged, produced, played and sang on some of the most influential blues standards in modern history, so it’s really a Dixon Groove.

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here when you’re ready.

Saturday Matinee – A Baboon, The Baboons, The Guana Batz, The Aquabats, The Skatalites

How to get a baboon to tell you where the water is in the Kalahari. Amazing. [Found here.]

The logical follow up to that video is The Baboons‘ “Drinkin’ Gasoline.” (Don’t laugh, they were on Walker, Texas Ranger, and if Mr. N says they’re awesome then they ARE awesome.)

The logical follow up to that video is more Rockabilly. Here are the Guana Batz with “Streetwise.”  Following the Guana Batz we have:

The Aquabats! Here’s a live version of “Fashion Zombies.” One last one before we go:

The Skatalites‘ rock steady ska with “Lawless Street.” Have a great weekend folks, see y’all tomorrow.
