Saturday Matinee – The Big Lie, Bad Manners, Reel Big Fish & The Skatalites

Saturday, 6 April 2019

The Big Lie (1951). Yeah, it was propaganda, but it was also true. I went to school with a guy whose family escaped from communist Hungary in a hot air balloon. You can laugh, say that “It can’t happen here,” but it IS happening here.

Bad Manners – one of my favorite Brit Ska bands.

Reel Big Fish. They were kinda awesome.

No one could out-ska the Skatalites.

1]Freedom Sound
2]Man In The Street
3]Guns Of Navarone
4]El Pussycat
5]James Bond Theme
6]Sugar, Sugar
7]Nice Time
8]Simmer Down / Turn Your Lamp Down Low
9]Rockfort Rock (El Cumbanchero)
10]Latin Goes Ska
11]Phoenix City
12]Freedom Sound – Reprise

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Hound Dog Taylor, Little Walter, Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee, The Allman Brothers Band with Eric Clapton

Saturday, 30 March 2019

Hound Dog Taylor & The Houserockers Live. From the Utoobage comments: “He had six fingers on his left hand.”

Little Walter’s Jump, 1967. From here:
Little Walter‘s harp is accompanied by Hound Dog Taylor (guitar), Dillard Crume (bass), and Odie Payne (drums), at the 1967 “American Folk Blues Festival” in Germany just months before his death.”

Who else was at that venue? Bukka White, Skip James, Koko Taylor, Son House and Sonny Terry & Brownie McGhee. All blues greats, without a doubt. So let’s go with this:

Yeah, Eric Clapton ripped off “Key To The Highway,” but he also paid many cool tributes, including this version with The Allman Brothers Band.

Have a great weekend, folks. Be back here tomorrow for more you know what.

Imagine If This Were Your Kid Hot Links

Sunday, 24 March 2019

In January of this year, The Washington Post, CNN and others selected and excoriated an innocent 16 year old kid for doing absolutely nothing other than to tolerate loud, racist harassment by leftist adults who appeared at an orchestrated event designed to advance their own political agenda.
Now he’s got a hammer.


Ra, Ra, Ra.

Fart Jokes.

No respect.

In the zone.

Pole dancer.

Cool trick, bro [via].

Didja all see that? I fixed it.”

Need snakes? Here’s a cool DIY trap.

I’m not even going to try to explain this.

The first muppet to star on a TV show wasn’t Kermit).

Socialism explained by someone who lived under it: 1 2 3 4.

The Hippy Dippy Weatherman first appeared on The Jimmy Dean Show in the early 1960s.

A hipster threatened to sue MIT Technology Review for using his photo in a story on how all hipsters look alike, then found out it’s not him in the photo. TRUE.


From the Talking Heads Department:

The wheels are coming off.

Breaking news / bombshell / tipping point / the walls are closing in / the beginning of the end.

Saturday Matinee – Rail Bicycling, Eliese LeGrow Bo Diddley & Dick Dale

Saturday, 23 March 2019

Rail bicycling looks like fun out in the open, but it would spook the hell out of me on the bridges. One rogue gust of wind blows you away, one mis-timed tunnel and you go splat. Nice vid with nice music.

Elise LeGrow took Bo Diddley’s classic and made it nasty.

Bo Diddley was a national treasure who got ripped off big time by the recording industry, partly due to his own ignorance of copyright law. The vid is from about 2008.

We lost another Great One this past week.

R.I.P. Richard Anthony Monsour aka Dick Dale (1937- 2019).

Have a great weekend, folks. See you back here in 24 or more.

Saturday Matinee – Vulfpeck, Lettuce Funk & Curtis Mayfield

Saturday, 26 January 2019

Vulfpeck has a cool funk/jazz groove, reminds me of Weather Report, except these guys make ridiculous “I’m About To Pop A Nut” faces while they jam.

Lettuce [aka Lettuce Funk] combines retro funk with retro future funk, and it works.

Jump to 5:08 for the Kansas Joe & Memphis Minnie / Led Zeppelin funk mashup. (I hear some of Zappa’s “I Am The Slime” in there, too.) Lettuce even had the cojones to cover Curtis Mayfield, and they did him right.

Poor video quality, but the audio is good. Here’s Curtis Mayfield’s original “Move On Up” (with German subtitles).

Have a great weekend, folks, and Move On Up wit yo bad sef. See you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Steel Shredder, Egg Cracker, Android 207, Tom Waits & Pink Floyd

Saturday, 19 January 2019

Not sure why, but this kind of stuff fascinates me.

Egg-breaking machine complete with egg-breaking porn soundtrack found here.

I ran across Paul Whittington‘s Android 207 a coupla years ago. Seems to fit.

Tom Waits‘ self-accompanied masterpiece “Clang Boom Steam” also seems appropriate.

From the Utoobage description: “The iconic video was created by Gerald Scarfe initially as a backdrop film for when the band [Pink Floyd] played the track on its 1977 In the Flesh tour.”
From the Utoobage comments: “Imagine having to wait 40 years to watch your favorite band’s official videoclip.”

Have a great weekend, folks, and don’t forget that astronomy is gonna happen tomorrow night.

Saturday, 29 December 2018

Okay. I’m impressed. The timelapse is killer.
