Options January 23, 2005: Swamp's Up

Listen to this show: RealAudio

Artist Track Comments
Big Guitars from Texas  Ride of the Ruthless   Options Real rock & roll to kick off the show 
Bomboras  Night of the Bomboras   Options "Head Shrinkin' Fun"-- the Bomboras 4th album-- came out in 1998 on the Zombie A Go-Go label. 
Tailgators  Swamp's Up   Options Don Leady wrote "Ride of the Ruthless" and played on the first (of two) "Big Guitars from Texas" album. Tailgators are a great swamp boogie/twang power trio, always hot. 
The 5, 6, 7, 8's  Woo Hoo   Options This version of the Rock-A-Teens 1950s hit comes from the "Kill Bill, Volume 1" soundtrack. 
Bernhard Hermann  Twisted Nerve   Options More Kill Bill. Tarantino always has good taste in music. 
Rev Norb  Brief Theme of Extraordinary Sadness   Options This guy's from somewhere around Green Bay, WI. Calls himself Earth's Greatest Rocker. 
Rev Norb  Unified Field   Options You can get in touch with Rev Norb via email at nrevorb@greenbaynet.com. Tell him I said hello. 
Sue Foley  Oh Baby (We Got a Good Thing Going)   Options Austin-based blues guitar player sings a pretty good cover of Barbara Lynn tune; from her "Love Comin' Down" (Shanachie, 2000) 
Rolling Stones  Oh Baby (We Got a Good Thing Going)   Options These guys can play and sing pretty good too. They did this tune on "Rolling Stones Now" back in 1965 
Darrell Nulish  Orange Soda   Options Neat harmonica instrumental from "Blues Harp Power"-- a collection from Rounder (aka Easy Disc) with lots of good blues guys 
Barbarians  That's What the New Breed Say   Options I stumbled onto these guys in Provincetown, MA, on Cape Cod in the 60s. Rhino issued a great collection of their stuff, on vinyl, in 1979; now it's all on CD on Sundazed. 
Barry & the Remains  Lonely Weekend   Options Maybe the best ever Boston rock & roll band-- which, some would say, is not saying much. This rockin' version of Charlie Rich tune was recorded in NYC in 1966. 
Duke & the Drivers  Jack That Cat Was Clean   Options Back together after decades, these Bostonians are a blast. 
Crazy Joe & the Variable Speed Band  Eugene   Options A cool dude in a loose mood! Ace Frehley had something to do with this 1978 classy tune. 
Mink Deville  Cadillac Walk   Options When Willy was hot stuff. From "Cabretta" (Capitol, 1977) 
Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings  How Do You Let A Good Man Down?   Options Check out their fine new CD called "Naturally" on Triagemusic out of Brooklyn. 
Joe Ely  Lord of the Highway   Options Butch Hancock wrote this great song; it was the title cut to Joe's 1987 album on Hightone. 
The Tribe  Leave Me In The Desert   Options More West Texas-- from a 1984 compilation on Electra, called "Ten from Texas" that includes Dan Del Santo and the Commandos. 
Johnny Vortex  Surfin' the Love Skin   Options Texas bands, far from the ocean, still know how to surf. From "Garage Justice, Vol 1"-- 20 bands from NYC & Austin fight it out. 
Weebads  Drink, Dance and Boogie   Options Felix Reyes and Hash Brown mix it up on "Texas Lovers" which mostly features Dallas bands 
Ted Roddy  Pick Up & Move On   Options Formerly of Teddy & the Talltops, this guy has been doing the rockabilly thing in Austin for a long time. Check out musicroom.org for more info. 
The Wild Seeds  Debi Came Back   Options "Live at the Continental Club" includes some of 1980s Austin's best: Leroi Brothers, Ponty Bone, Tailgators, Butch Hancock, Will Sexton, Joe King Carrasco... 
Mark Pollack  Border Jump   Options Fine blues instrumental, also on "Texas Lovers" album 
Joe King Carrasco  Let's Go   Options Farfisa-flavored party rock & roll from 1983 
Sir Douglas Quintet  Wooly Bully   Options The best Chicano rock & roll song ever, done here by San Antonio boys Doug Sahm, Augie Meyers et al on "Live Texas Tornado" (Takoma, 1983) 
Hector & the Eastmen  Wobble Lou   Options More border music, this one off a great new CD: "Club Harlem: Whip! Wobble and Grind: 1962-1964" 
Pucho and his Latin Soul Brothers  El Albaniquito   Options Boogaloo from "The Hideout"-- Pucho's salute to funky NYC nightclub (Milestone, 2004) 
Pucho and his Latin Soul Brothers  Born to Groove   Options I used this as a bed (talkover music) but faded up the end of it for your listening pleasure. 
Bembeya Jazz National  Guinee Hety Horemoun   Options The song is a tribute to the homeland, from "The Syliphone Years" (Stern's Africa, 2004). This amazing band is finally getting heard. 
Joe Bataan  Keep the Change   Options Recent boogaloo from the soon-to-be released "Call My Name" on VampiSoul, produced by Daniel Collas. 
Sir Douglas Quintet  You Never Get Too Big and You Sure Don't Get Too Heavy That You Don't Have To Stop And Pay Some Dues Some Time   Options Doug and band left Texas and headed out to the Bay Area for a while. From 1968 "Honkey Blues" 
Willie Henderson & the Soul Explosions  Instrumental 11- Untitled   Options Our fadeout: from "Funky Chicken" on VampiSoul. Recorded 1970, released on CD in 2003. 
Bobby Fuller  My Own True Love   Options Beginning of Gaylord's show but you can hear it on my archive! This short instrumental is from the El Paso rocker who did "I Fought the Law" and more 
Fred Neill  The Water Is Wide   Options Also Gaylord but one of my faves too. 
Dominique A.  Rien Qu'` Voir   Options Another Gaylord pick, ends abruptly.
