Speaking of Ike and Tina, here's a fucking GREAT "River Deep, Mountain High" from the early 70s:

I have an irrational love for old Beat Club clips. The trippy backgrounds were awesome in their cheesiness/hipness, and bands just always sort of seemed looser on there than they would be playing on, say, the Tonight Show. A couple of my favorites:

Deep Purple - Highway Star

Ian Gillan's just making up shit on the spot I think, and Ritchie scores BIG points with me for having the balls to rock out in a pilgrim hat on live television. And it's maybe the most ridiculous guitar solo I've ever seen on TV. Awesome.

Can - Paperhouse

One of my all time favorite bands, and even if they'd probably be wise to not go shirtless, this is just fucking awesome.

Ike never understood nor knew how very lucky he was to luck into stardom on his wife's lungs and legs. And he abused it at every chance.

Ummm, Ike was quite popular before Tina and is entirely a musical genius in his own right. A good case for him being the inventor of rock and roll rests on Rocket 88. And he is one of the most incredible, innovative rock guitarists. The fact that he let Tina take the spotlight just shows him being cool.

Really? I know absolutely nothing about him save that he beat his wife and that he hasn't had much of a career since she left, so in the absence of more documentation that is how it looks to today's audience.

Well, let's put it this way. Not giving Ike his musical due is similar to Spector being known in the future as just a psycho who killed some woman.
I'll upload some stuff. Here's a bit from Wikipedia:

Turner's 1951 recording of "Rocket 88" is considered one of the earliest examples of rock and roll with a driving back beat and topped with electric guitar and wailing saxophone. The song's guitar distortion had an odd story behind it. The amp he used to record it was dropped in a parking lot before recording, so he went inside to listen to the sound. He hated it, but the producer liked it. It was considered to be among first recordings in which guitar distortion was used. It was a sharp contrast from the relatively more jazzy and sophisticated jump blues or swing combo music that preceded it.

The record was released under the name of Jackie Brenston and his Delta Cats, but was actually performed by Ike Turner and his Kings of Rhythm. Through music-business intrigue, Brenston, Turner's saxophone player, ended up with artist and co-author credit on Turner's tune.

Musically, Turner was known for an aggressive, hard-hitting lead guitar style. He was known to put the whammy bar of his Fender Stratocaster to frequent use. In addition to his bandleading and performing, Turner was a talent scout and informal A & R man for independent record companies, including Sun Records, and played guitar or piano as side man for many pioneer blues performers, including Robert Nighthawk, Sonny Boy Williamson II, Elmore James, and Otis Rush. In his early career, he operated out of East Saint Louis, Illinois.

Turner is also noted for introducing the classic soul music show to general audiences with the Ike and Tina Turner Revue, featuring a full band, Tina Turner, and the Ikettes, a female trio of frantic singers and dancers. The Revue opened for the Rolling Stones on their American tours in 1966 and 1969.

In 2001, Turner released the Grammy-nominated Here and Now, and appeared at the Montreal Jazz Festival and North Sea Jazz Festival. In 2004 he was bestowed a "Heroes Award" by the Memphis chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (NARAS). Turner was featured in two installments of Martin Scorsese's "The Blues" films. In 2005, he appeared on Gorillaz' Demon Days release, performing the piano for the song Every Planet We Reach Is Dead also performing in the band's sold-out Demon Days Live shows. A documentary about Ike Turner's contributions to music is in production for 2006.

In 2006, the 75-year-old Ike Turner performed in the popular Night of the Proms shows in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany. In 2007, Turner received the Grammy Award for Best Traditional Blues Album for his Risin' with the Blues.

A collaboration between Turner and the blues-rock band The Black Keys, produced by Gorillaz producer Danger Mouse, is expected to be released in 2007.

Classic Lesley Gore Scopitone for Wonder Boy. Why can't life still be like this?
I thought all American schools were still like this? No?


Awesome. Need to hear more LG!

Wanda Jackson, Rock Your Baby. Watch this one now, please.


That was awesome too. Something about her made me think of Patti Smith and Polly Harvey- a similar rawness.

I'm Not There biopic, Dylan...Cate Blanchett. My immediate reaction? Hate it. But I've had a couple beers. I did like the inside Basement Tape joke at the end.
