27 October 2008 // 17.00-19.00


Listen part1:


... He was coming to Amsterdam with his partner and former backing vocalist Noelle for a romantic holiday without the children. So when I came to meet him & Noelle at the Vertigo Cafe in Amsterdam’s Vondelpark I was looking for someone who looked like me. Well, lucky for him, he doesn’t look much like me. At 5 PM, 27 October 2008, we did a live interview mixed with DJing & live performances by MAA. We defied the unpredictability of DIY 3rd-hand donated & scavenged equipment & the always chaotic mixing board & reasonable show of high quality lo-fi entertainment ...



[9] School Bus, Fat Possum, 1998. “I met the guys a couple of times. Really love the way he plays. Very amazing. He initially played in a duo called Doo Rag (2 albums). This duo was really more on the MAA side. We have the mask and the one-man-band style in common. He's more on the blues-trash side.” Bob Log III is an Arizona-born lo-fi, punk-blues performer who was in the duo band Doo Rag. He went solo in the mid-1990s and developed an elaborate persona on stage in a body suit and motorcycle helmet with a cheap microphone, which allowed this one-man band to also play guitar and drums and further developed his speed-delta-blues sound.
[10] Reverend Beat-Man and the Un-believers, Voodoo Rhythm. 2001. “Really cool guy. I think you should be interested in his work, label and history. Go to his website. This guy put me on the road.” Some of MMA’s most memorable experiences occurred during his 1996 European Tour with other bands and Lightning Beat-man, a trash-blues one-man band, and the Watzloves and with the Pits and Viloorde in Belgium, Benidorm in Spain, Lolita Bar in Kassel, l’Usine in Geneva, Tours, Bordeaux, Peripignan in France, and Bern, Switzerland... As part of a garage or punk-rock scene across Europe.
[11] 1927-1933 the Blues, Fremeaux et Associés. “One of my favorites of the yodeling stuff. I often yodel to his records. You should take a look at their website too. Main inspiration to me.”
[12] Cowboy Songs, Buckingham vinyl.
[13] “One man bands often sing about their inability to play a guitar well.... it's a classic theme. Initially put out on a compilation from the French label Roller Asso. A second version with a more electrified sound is found on  Wild Music for Bad Tasters. When the strings are too numerous just sit in the desert and yodel... it can help.”
[13a] “Cover of the original you know the name of...”
[13b] “Originally sung by Ernie Vandergriff and Joyce Lawrence and found on the rare CD Hillbilly Rock 2 on Lenox Records, 1993.” MAA performs it on My Mother Killed Rock & Roll, Kenrock, 2000.
[14] Hillbilly Haley, Roller Coaster, 1984. Kenny Roberts [1] taught Haley how to yodel in the late 1940s ad yodel he does on 3 tracks.
[15] Western Cowboy Ballads & Songs: Anthologie 1925-1939, Fremeaux & Associes,
[16] CD Rockabilly Trash, auto-produced, 2004. “My friend Bill. He's also a great yodeler from Canada! He does Jimmie Rodgers covers too. His live performances are incredible. Yodeling, yelling, spitting like a cat on high voltage... 2 records out, a bunch of tapes and auto-produced material...”
