The Heimatdamisch Covers Highway to Hell

The Heimatdamish is an eight-piece-polka-style band that is not shy about doing pop songs. I thought I would share a few of their covers today.

The Heimatdamish – Highway to Hell

They do a great job making interesting-one-set videos which are far from boring. One more video and links after the break.

Pink Floyd and Other Modern Music Performed on a Traditional Korean Instrument, The Gayageum

You may have already seen these videos. I noticed this Pink Floyd on the gayageum over at Boing! Boing!, saved it for further exploration and the next day found even more at Open Culture. Videos go viral for many reasons, in this case, the reason is Luna Lee’s talent.

More information, and videos, after the break. Check out how she nails the guitar parts about 2:30 in.

Jimi Hendrix – Moebius (S)trip

Before license fees changed it all, MTv transformed music into the realm of the visual. Music videos added another layer of creativity to music.

Less than a year ago, Google launched Deep Dream, AI software to create videos. The video below is the work of YouTuber Lulu xXX. A live performance of Hendrix playing Hey Joe fused with the art of Jean Giraud aka Moebius.

The Accidental Begining of “American Woman” by The Guess Who

Musicians try to jump on any creative spark as quickly as possible. When I was still composing, I wrote lyrics on napkins and matchbook covers because that was what was handy.

I am not going to spoil the video but listen in as Randy Bachman tells the tale of origin of American Woman.

Kudos to Open Culture for the find.

Lila Cheney – An Awesome Xmen Themed Music Video

I really like this video by Lila Cheney & The New Mutants. I hope the copyright vultures don’t swoop down on this creative parody. It is too kewl to have its innards torn out of the Internet. I don’t think it is super spectacular but it is a perfect fit for myself. Maybe it goes back to my childhood.  I was into both Xmen and music before I was school.

I love the theme. I love the effects and I especially love how well the music and the video work with each other.

While we have heard much about the greatness of David Bowie since his passing  there are still others around doing great work. Iggy Pop and Josh Homme are among them. Sadly, the Star Man may no longer with us, he is, in a sense, still here. He was not only a terrific performer but served as a mentor and inspiration to many musicians. I am pleased to see some new work by a musician who once stated “He resurrected me” in an interview when he referred to the late artist.

After the break, check out this performance of a new track from Iggy Pop and Josh Homme.

No doubt we have all heard a lot about David Bowie of the late. But have you heard of David Bowie the impersonator? Certainly the multi-faceted talent could become any character. Glam rocker, Star Man, Tesla, a goblin king or any other role, he always seemed to nail it.

He did it perfectly and made it look easy. To the point where people are already wondering who can replace him in a rumored Labyrinth 2.  Most performers become remembered for a particular character or role.  

In my opinion, we are going to remember David Bowie for exactly the opposite.  The man could become any character.  He truly was flexible and elastic able to bend, shrink or expand to become whatever the role demanded.  I remember first seeing him as Tesla and my reaction was “wait, is that David Bowie?”.  

Check out how well David Bowie, the Impersonator, nails fellow musicians in the video after the break.
