Saturday Matinee – 1922 Hotties, Grampa Shreds, 50 Blues Riffs & Jeff Healey with Dr. John

Saturday, 14 January 2017

1922 beauties and fashions in color [via].

Anonymous octogenarian walks into a guitar store and doesn’t play “Smoke On The Water.”

This guy nails the styles and acknowledges that there are caption typos in the vid. The Utoobage post has the entire list.

Jeff Healey (with Dr. John) had a killer jam recorded in 1988.

Have a great weekend, folks. Rock on wit yo bad sef.

Saturday Matinee – Sign Painters, Unsatisfying, PPAP, Chewbacca Screams; JJ Grey & Mofro

Saturday, 7 January 2017

Great Grampa Strutts and his sons were painters. I tried it once, but didn’t have the proper equipment.

“Unsatisfying” by Parallel Studio.

PPAP is mildly disturbing.

JJ Grey & Mofro cranked some swamp soul at the Peoria Blues Fest on 31 August 2013. Lotta recognizable influences, especially Joe Cocker.

Have a great weekend folks.

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Hot Links

Sunday, 18 December 2016

NOEL is LEON spelled backwards, so here is Mr. Redbone (with Dr. John) from the album “Christmas Island.”

Nice list of Christmas Carols organized by language.

Here’s a great title from 1553: “Un Flambeau, Jeannette, Isabelle” (“Bring a Torch, Jennette, Isabelle.”)  Basically, two girls are directed to create a fire hazard in a stable, someone bangs on the door to deliver cakes, but there’s a sleeping newborn so everyone better shut up.

The medieval Christmas carol, “Entre le bœuf et l’âne gris” (“Between the Ox and the Grey Ass”) as performed on 10 Theramins.

Q: What’s the oldest Christmas carol?
A: I dunno, but here’s a start.

Every Christmas Tree needs a Jingle Pug.
(That one’s for you Ms. Oops.)

The Story of the Crap Tree.

The missus showed me a coupon that included a turkey stuffing recipe using White Castle Sliders yesterday. Wow.

Every rock band has a Christmas song, including The Ramones.

Los Angeles Ex-Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, aka Tony Villar, grunts “Jingle Bells” [via The John and Ken Show AM640KFI].

Pah-Rumpa-Pum-Pum indeed. This is the best version ever.

Ever hear anyone say, “Now, bring us some figgy pudding?” Neither have I, but if someone does, this is what you gotta do.

Saturday Matinee – Vi Hart’s Eggs, Steel Forge, Tom Waits & The Magic Piano

What a fun Singalong [via].

This fascinates me. No idea what they’re making, but it needs a Tom Waits soundtrack, like this:

Wow. Christmas is only week away, so we need a nice happy video. So many to choose from, and so many sappy ones that I don’t want to post, so here’s one that always makes me smile:

Such a simple brilliant fun idea. I wish there were more clips or an uncut version, but I haven’t found them… yet.

Have a great weekend, folks, and enjoy the holidays.

 

Saturday Matinee -Slidin’ in Montreal, John Popper with Eric Clapton, The Blues Brothers, John Lee Hooker & Aretha Franklin

Saturday, 10 December 2016

Self explanatory slippery wreckage with an appropriate soundtrack. (Here’s another version with a Canuck/Reggae/Punk soundtrack.)

Is it too early for a Christmas jam? Nah.

Yeah, I didn’t recognize Eric Clapton, but you can’t miss John Popper, and I can’t keep the image of John Belushi out of my head while listening to him.

Sorry about that, but I’ll make up for it. Lookee here:

Mitica scena del film “The Blues Brothers” in cui Jake e Elwood entrano nel ghetto per andare a reclutare Matt Guitar Murphy e Blue Lou Marini. Eccezionali le performance di John Lee Hooker (è proprio lui che canta il suo stesso pezzo Boom Boom Boom) e di Aretha Franklyn, che interpreta la moglie di Matt.

Vi auguriamo un grande fine della settimana, la gente. Ci vediamo di nuovo qui domani per più divertente.

Saturday Matinee – Gravy Canes, The TeeTones, & Miscellaneous R&B

Saturday, 3 December 2016

This kinda stuff makes me smile.

The TeeTones do it right, and I wanna be their bass man.

No idea who those guys are, but I wanna be their bass man.

These guys are great. I wanna be their bass man.

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

[P.S. Thanks to The TeeTones for following. You guys are awesome, and I wanna be your bass man.]

Saturday Matinee – Crater Face, Postmodern Jukebox, Gunhild Carling & The Best Moth Joke You’ve Ever Heard

Saturday, 26 November 2016

Crater Face” is an animated short about two lonely moon pimples and a deranged astronaut (by Skyler Page).

Awesome RickRoll by Postmodern Jukebox on the RMS Queen Mary in 2016, featuring Gunhild Carling on vocals, trumpet, recorder, trombone & bagpipes. Really.

BUT WAIT! THERE’S MORE!

I knew a guy who could play two saxes at the same time (with rubber bands holding down a couple of keys) and I can believe that someone might be able play two trumpets simultaneously, but three? Had there not been a video I’d have never believed it.

The song is “El Manisero  (aka “The Peanut Vendor) and it dates to 1930s Cuba. Stan Kenton’s version is my favorite because of all the discordant stuff that he worked into it.

Classic Norm MacDonald delivery.

Have a great holiday weekend, folks. Enjoy the leftovers while you can, and don’t EVEN try to retell that moth joke because you’ll fail miserably.

 

Saturday Matinee – Sha Na Na, The Broke Brothers & The Wailers

Saturday, 12 November 2016

Sha Na Na was best known for opening for Jimi Hendrix at Woodstock, doing covers of early R&R and R&B hits, but they wrote some original songs as well. “The Vote Song” appeared on their album “The Night Is Still Young” in 1972, also a presidential election year, and if you replace “Nixon” with “Obama” in the lyrics, it still works.

The Broke Brothers‘ cover of the The Stone’s hit is an interesting take. It’s also an appropriate song that sums up my feelings about last Tuesday’s Election Day results.

As a resident of the People’s Republic of California, my vote didn’t count for anything, not even on the specious ballot measures, but at the same time I’m pleased that a certain someone will not become President.

The Wailers perform their classic 1977 hit “Three Little Birds” (sans the late Bob Marley) in 2014. For everyone on all sides of the political spectrum, this seems appropriate as well.

Have a great weekend, folks, and steer clear of the hooligans.

Saturday Matinee – Ghost Theme Park, Are You Popular?, Ray Charles & Tommy Emmanuel

Saturday, 29 October 2016

The second or third Happiest Place on Earth.

Japanese theme park Nara Dreamland was built in 1961 but was permanently closed in 2006 due to declining attendance. At one time this place was filled with laughter; now it’s just spooky. This is what it looks like after years of neglect. [via].

“Are You Popular?” I wish I’d seen this 1947 PSA when I was in High School. All my dates could have been spatulas and 2x4s.

Ray Charles performs at an elementary school in London in a 1964 film “Ballad In Blue” [via].

Tommy Emmanuel is amazing. No formal training, can’t read or write music, yet his sound is incredible with an unmistakable Chet Atkins influence. He reminds me of Leo Kottke.

Have a great weekend, folks. There’s more to come.
