Saturday Matinee – DoodleChaos, M. Shadows, Shadows Nepal & The Shadows

 “I’ve synchronized The Flight of the Valkyries (by Richard Wagner) to 8 Line Riders racing down the track for victory. Choose your team color and cross your fingers. All lines were drawn by hand.”  [Link found buried in here.]

M. Shadows screams about something for half a minute.

The Shadows Nepal, from Narayangadh, Chitwanrock, have been performing for over 20 years and have a large following, both in Nepal and around the world. Dharma appeared on their 2nd album, Hidne Manche Ladcha, released in 2006. More about them here.

The Shadows in a clip from the 1961 movie The Young Ones, complete with their typical choreography (and some overdubbed not-quite-Beatlesque screaming girls).

I can’t remember if I’ve got big plans for the weekend or not, but I know I’m supposed to do something. See you back here whenever.

Saturday Matinee – Weapon Brown (trailer), Perch Creek & Deak Harp

Badass Chuck found here.

The Perch Creek Family Jug Band (since renamed Perch Creek) are four siblings plus a stray from Northern New South Wales, are currently based in Melbourne, Australia.

Deak Harp jams outside Deak’s Mississippi Saxophones & Blues Emporium in Clarksdale, Mississippi (2014). Guy got his bonafides by following James “Mr. Superharp” Cotton up and down the east coast before getting a job driving Cotton’s van (and  THIS is a Mississippi Saxophone).

Lotta things going down these days, but that’s not news to anyone. In the meantime, have a great weekend and maybe we’ll see better things tomorrow. See you then.

Saturday Matinee – SOUR, A Southern Gospel Revival, The Kentucky Headhunters & The Reverend Horton Heat

SOUR日々の音色 (Hibi no neiro)‘  video from 2009 coordinated Zoom before Zoom.

A Southern Gospel Revival updates classic gospel with amazing vocals and bluegrass.

The Kentucky Headhunters showed up on my radar long ago with the best (and only?) cover of Davy Crockett ever. Glad to see they’re still having fun.

Reverend Horton Heat tells the story before he growls out Motörhead‘s classic Ace of Spades.

Running out of useful brain cells tonight, so have a great weekend and we’ll see you back her tomorrow for no good reason at all.

Saturday Matinee – Pursuit of Ghosts, INSA & Pink Floyd

Pursuit of Ghosts is a representation of the daily grind. We assign meaning to our existence , what matters to me might not matter to you.
Mesmerizing animation by Kevin McGloughlin uses footage by photography pioneer Eadward Muybridge  with music by Max Cooper and Tim Hodge.

Daredevil Global .Gif promo (2016) features  INSA and his “Gif-iti.” He creates some amazing stuff, including the Rockin’ Rolls posted here.

From the Utoobage:
Pink Floyd performing at the ancient Roman amphitheatre in Pompeii , Italy. The main footage in and around the amphitheatre was filmed over four days in October 1971, using the band’s regular touring equipment, including studio-quality 24-track tape recorders.”

Kinda spacy trippy stuff for this 3-day weekend, and if you’re headed out, be sure to drive fast. The less time on the road reduces the odds of an accident. See you back here tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Rail Yard Ghosts, The Spuny Boys & The BoDeans

Railyard Ghosts are a self-described “deathgrass band” from Minnesota, but are categorized by others as a folk punk  orchestra. Their lineup is constantly changing, excepting Ms. RabbitTail Abigail and Mr. Riley Coyote. Not much more about them here.

The Spunyboys covered Ronnie Dawson‘s 1959 hit Rockin’ Bones with reverence in 2018, Villeneuve St. George, France.

The BoDeans formed in 1986 in Waukesha, Wisconsin, and they’re still at it. Recorded in 1993 and performed here in 2015, Closer to Free is their biggest hit to date.

Looks like something big and nasty is comin’ round the mountain, and it’s not gonna be fun. Hope the effects don’t affect us as much as I think they will, but we’ll carry on. See you back here tomorrow and we’ll do laundry.

Saturday Matinee – Richard Thompson, Y Niwl & The Dip

“It’s kind of a social misfit song, nothing autobiographical here at all.” Richard Thompson, underrated folk rock guitarist and songwriter.

Cob Records of Porthmadog, Gwynedd, Wales hosted a farewell party in 2012 featuring North Wales surf rock gods Y Niwl . The band’s name is pronounced Uh Nule – “The Fog” in Welsh.

The Dip  is comprised of jazz students from  University of Washington (Seattle) and not only do they have the retro soul sound down, they got cowbell.

Lotta stuff going down these days, some good, some bad, and some is downright abhorrent. Let’s enjoy what what we like, protect what we treasure and we’ll deal with the rest when it comes. Have a great weekend, see you sometime tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Trombone Talk with Haruka Kikuchi, R.L. Boyce & friends, and The Stacy Mitchhart Band

Trombone Talk with Haruka Kikuchi (aka Queen of the Tailgate Trombone).

R.L Boyce jams with Jimmy “Duck” Holmes, Australia Jones, Sherena Boyce, Randy “19th Street Red” Cohen, Dave Hundrieser, Jay Bundy Johnson, Tommy “Ribs” Hillifer and others. Filmed at the Blue Front Cafe in Bentonia, Mississippi, and overdubbed from the album Rattlesnake Boogie.

The Stacy Mitchhart Band – Outta Cincinnati and on to Nashville, Mitchhart preaches the roots. Great stuff.

Not much left to do but have a great weekend and we’ll see you sometime tomorrow.

Saturday Matinee – Girl X, Roy Head, The Black Keys & Gary Clark Jr.

Twisted clay animation by Takena Nagaona:
“I began making clay animations at high school. I’m a huge fan of horror movies and metal music. My works are often renowned for violence and gore!”
[h/t Gorehound]

Roy Head (sans The Traits) showed off his JB moves  while lip-syncing on  Hollywood A Go-Go (a Shindig wannabe) in 1965. Too bad the vid fades out before the song is over.

The Black Keys are still at it.

Gary Clark Jr. set the surf on fire in 2016 with 10-1/2 minutes of pure awesome.

Have a peaceful Easter and take time to remember what it’s all about.

Saturday Matinee – The Life Cycle of a Pea, Wayne Hancock & GA-20

The Life Cycle of Peas.
[h/t Mme. Jujujive].

“The only other guy who has more Hank Williams in him than me is Wayne ‘The Train’ Hancock…” – Hank Williams III
Wayne Hancock covers Fats Waller because he can.

GA-20 covers Hound Dog Taylor because they should.

Have a great weekend, we’ll mess around with stuff tomorrow.
