Saturday Matinee – NFL 2019 Bad Lip Reading, Zappa & The Persuasions

Saturday, 9 February 2019

Bad Lipreading of NFL 2019 (via).

I’m kinda in a doo-wop mood, and St. Valentine’s Day is coming up. Czech this out.

That’s one of my favorite Zappa love songs because he did it so righteously.

The Persuasions deserved more recognition than they ever got. They were always looking for an echo and they covered Zappa.

Have a great weekend, folks. See y’all back here tomorrow for stuff.

Saturday Matinee – Chameleon Climbs Water, Chameleon Attacks iPhone & Other Stuff

Saturday, 29 September 2012

Chameleon frightened by a technological thingie.

Where do we go from here? I’m not gonna post Boy George, and the Utoobage offering of a band called “The Chameleons” held little interest for me. Oh wait. I got it.

The Lounge Lizards, 1988, “The Voice of Chunk.”  This experimental group never quite hit, but they had a point. Some might axe me, “Bunk, do you really like this crap?” and my emphatic response is, “No, but at least they tried.”

This is the stuff that I like. Keith Ferguson formed The Tail Gators after he left The Fabulous Thunderbirds, so there’s the lizard link. Big guitars. Yep.

I like this stuff, too, maybe even better:

The Persuasions are an awesome a capella group. Vid from 1971, about the time that they signed their first recording contract, courtesy Frank Zappa.

Have a great weekend folks, and we’ll continue the summer sleigh-ride tomorrow.
