Remembering Elvis Presley’s Fighting Scene in 1957 movie Loving You

Elvis Presley died today 40 years ago.  He’s a cultural icon of the 20th century and often referred to as the King of Rock ‘n Roll. Elvis Presley LP’s are still today everywhere. Besides his singing career, he was also quite an actor. 

Fighting-scene Elvis movie Loving You

I always enjoy the fighting scene in the 1957 movie Loving You.  Elvis referred to as “Side Burns” is being challenged to sing one of his songs. After a while, they convince the King to sing one of his hits. As a fee, Elvis wants a new pair of seat covers in his car. Then the fights starts!

LISTEN: J. Roddy Walston and the Business’ new song “The Wanting”

Rock ‘n Roll band J. Roddy Walston & The Business released their first new song in four years titled “The Wanting”. Over the years these guys performed all over the USA where they made name for themselves with their wild live shows! 

Rock ‘n Roll songs and wild live shows!

With fantastic songs like “Don’t Break The Needle”,  “Don’t Get Old”, “Take It As It Comes” and “Marigold” they showed how to bring creative Southern Rock ‘n Roll with a totally unique sound. Therefore it isn’t strange these guys have a big group of loyal fans. and I’m one of them.

New J. Roddy Walston & The Business Album this fall

The band’s forthcoming record came to life in their own Richmond, VA recording studio and was co-produced by the band and Phil Ek (Fleet Foxes, Father John Misty, Built To Spill). It will be released this fall.

“I personally fell in love with writing music again,” Walston explained. “It took awhile but once I realized I had room to try things that I had never tried before, I became addicted to the process.”  “The Wanting” describes the relationship of an estranged father and son: “Even though it is a dark song with a brutal ending, I find hope and beauty in the idea of these two people that had a shared sense of both regret and longing for each other.”

Piano Rock ‘n Roll 

I’m looking forward hearing more songs from the upcoming album,  but “The Wanting” shows promising.  There ain’t that many bands that can bring unique Rock ‘n Roll music these days with piano as one of the main instrument so hopefully,  we are going to hear that back on the new record like we did over the years!

The Live Rock’n’Roll Soul Surf Show: The Dustaphonics

London based the Dustaphonics are not an average band. It all began when actress Tura Satana, who you might know from the ’65 cult classic Faster Pussycat Kill Kill, asked DJ Healer Selecta aka Yvan Serrano to create some music for her new movie. So it happened “Healer Selecta’s Live Rock’n’Roll Soul Surf show”, Dustaphonics, was born.

Not a Traditional band: The Dustaphonics

The Dustaphonics is not a band in the traditional sense; instead, it is composed of founder bandleader, music director & producer Yvan Serrano, who selects and assembles a specific rotating line-up of London-based talented singers. This results in the diverse sound from Surf, to Rhythm and Blues and from Garage to Soul.

But above all, the Dustaphonics will let you dance to the best surf beats and swinging Rhythms. Think of bands like The Excitements, Guantánamo Baywatch and the Blueswater to get an idea of their sound.

She gives awesome Blues Rock performances and her songs contain some dark and soulful vocals that could easily be the soundtrack of neo-noir movie. Sophia Urista made fame as a contestant of The Voice US and as lead singer of Brooklyn-based Rock ‘n’ Roll band the VeeVees.

Sophia has been dubbed the most promising artist in rock n roll music. Alongside guitarist Brian J (Pimps of Joytime/Bernard Purdie) she released an EP called Ratchet Punk in 2016. She’s also made her mark in New York as MC at Duane Park, The Box, and Sleep No More and stunned audiences at Brooklyn’s Afropunk Music

Especially “Riches” show very well how she mixes blues, soul, and heavier fuzz-infused rock into a longdrink full of obtainable grooves. Her songs are divers and she is prepared to step out of the box of the traditional blues genres.

Rock ‘n’ Roll of A Giant Dog speaks to the hearts of slackers, burnouts, rockers, sluts, and creeps

Well, it was half way the second round of the usual friday night beer session, when I heard A Giant Dog through the speakers. “Sex and Drugs” was on and I thought It was an unheard soundtrack of the 2017 version of the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Later we listened more of their songs and discovered a similar groove you hear in Garage Rock music, except there is a theatrical juice over their music. We discovered these folks are hailin’ from Austin, Texas and releases their ablum Pile last hear.

Speaking to the hearts of slackers. Rockers. Sluts and creeps

Curious about their style we searched the web and found out that “No band better speaks to the hearts of slackers, burnouts, rockers, sluts, and creeps everywhere than A Giant Dog.”, Which is a perfect description of their music.

AC/DC, The Ramones, Joan Jett

Forging their friendships in the crucible of their Houston, TX, high school, Sabrina Ellis (vocals), Andrew Cashen (vocals, guitar), and Orville Neeley (drums) first got their start covering AC/DC, The Ramones, Joan Jett, and the finer points of the Back to the Future soundtrack at school dances under the band name Youth In Asia.
