Deadsplinter Up! All Night: The Main Squeeze

Funk, Jazz, Rock & Soul

I’ve been really grooving to this band recently.  They combine all my favorite elements of funk, jazz, and serious rock and roll with a vocalist of impressive range.  This song features a sick keyboard/guitar duo at about 3:28…

Watch the expression of the drummer on this song at about 1:38…

and just to show they have great range, here is some heavy soul…

The best cover of this I have ever heard…  

So who’s your “main squeeze” of the moment? My musical short attention span is always hungry for something new. Doesn’t have to be new, just new to me. Enjoy your night and thanks for your support.

  1. Watch the expression of the drummer on this song at about 1:38…

     
    What about his parkour skills at the beginning? Kid’s got a lot of tools. I hope my Ozzy post this morning fueled your posting of a War Pigs cover. Which rocks. 
     
    I went on a Chemical Brothers run earlier this week, because the world makes no sense anyway.
     

     
     
     

  2. This morning between bouts of clogging up Deadsplinter I was interrupted by a cry of “God fucking dammit!” “What vexes you so, my snookums?” He was trying to send an email (through the much-loathed MS Office) that was fairly complicated, it required head formatting and a couple of other design elements. “Let me give it a try. It’s been years…” While I was working on this (I was ultimately successful) I started singing “You got to pay your dues/If you wanna sing the blues/And you know it don’t come easy”

  3. “All you got to do is, man, hold her when you wanna Squeeze her, don’t tease her, never leave her Get to her, got, got, got to try a little tenderness,”
     
    The way Otis Redding builds this song up from the simplest foundations into pure intensity while keeping the underlying tenderness is one of the marvels of the modern world.
