In 2020, the world stood still… in the movies too. The End is an experimental narrative short film, in black & white and color, made only with movies gifs with a perfect loop, more than 500. The End is also a tribute to the cinema, from silent films to now.
23 year old Kingfish Ingram has already recorded and/or performed with Rick Derringer, Samantha Fish, Eric Gales, Guitar Shorty, Buddy Guy, Bob Margolin, Keb Mo, Mr. Sipp and the Tedeschi Trucks Band. Amazing.
Whoa. It’s the weekend already. Lotta time flies these days and we’ll see you tomorrow sooner than you think.
In December 2017 Samantha Fish ripped into the classic Crow Jane. “Its roots lay in the Piedmont region of Virginia and North and South Carolina. Rev. Gary Davis was known to perform it during the 1920’s, and the first recording was made in 1927 by guitarist Julius Daniels.”
Not sure what Crow Jane did to deserve being killed.
Just rediscovered this 2008 Russian compilation of animations done with Post-It Notes (by Andrey Bakhurin).
“Welcome to ‘Trombone Talk’ and today’s guest is Stephen Walker (I call him Steve). He is one of my old friend since I’ve been here, we used to hang around at the YUKI Izakaya on Frenchmen Street (they closed down in October 2016), and yes, great Trombone player.”
That’s some class clowning. While street performing in Paris, Avner Eisenberg (aka Avner the Eccentric) was once arrested for buffoonery in public.
Space surf funk jazz mixed with world music = Khruangbin.
The name is Thai for “aeroplane,” and they make their recordings in a barn in Burton, Texas (pop. 300). There’s more about them here than on their cool website.
Formed in 2004, L.A.’s Raskahuele Estridente is sort of a latino version of Fishbone, and I like their style. Their song topics include socio-political / immigration issues mixed in with fun stuff.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend, fight for the leftovers, and we’ll see you back here tomorrow.
