Saturday Matinee – Russian Cyberfarm, KMAC2021, The Marcus King Band & Playing For Change

Saturday, 1 May 2021

They say that Russia is a technically backward country, there are no roads, robotics do not develop, rockets do not fly, and mail goes too long. It’s bullshit.

KMAC2021 has been around a while, does some great short videos and has close to a million fans on the Utoobage. He does some serious stuff, too.

Marcus King started learning guitar at age three or four, played professionally since he was 11. He’s a fourth-generation musician; his grandfather was a country guitarist, and his father, Marvin King, continues to perform live.

Musicians from around the globe, assembled by Playing For Change, covered the NOLA staple Iko Iko in style. It features Dr. John (in one of his last recordings), the Grateful Dead’s Bill Kreutzmann and Mickey Hart, New Orleans’ favorites Ivan Neville, Donald Harrison and George Porter, Jr.

Yep. There’s some stuff alright. Have a great weekend and try not to annoy too many people on social media. See you tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Jerry Jeff Walker, The Marcus King Band & Rachel Mazer

Saturday, 28 September 2019

Jerry Jeff Walker‘s re-recording of “Trashy Women” from 2014. Glad to see he’s still around (even if his rhymes still suck donkeys). Don’t remember him? He first came onto my radar with his cover of one of the greatest beer bar singalong songs ever.

[Bonus clip: Here’s Ray Wylie Hubbard asplainin’ the background story of the song he wrote.]

The Marcus King Band fires all 12 cylinders. Nice style mash IMO.

Rachel Mazer rolls a nice groove, wants me so bad she can’t let it go. (Rachel, get in line and be patient. I’ll get to you in time.)

If you didn’t notice, all three vids are from the same source, Jam In The Van (backed by Turtle Wax). Nice to hear some fresh air.

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