Tav Falco’s Panther Burns (with Alex Chilton on guitar!) on “Straight Talk with Marge Thrasher” in 1979

Watch through the halfway point to hear Tav argue his case for “anti-rockabilly” with the host.

WOW. MIND SHATTERING CLIP!!!

This was one of my favorite moments in the BIG STAR documentary, and almost single-handedly has me reconsidering my decades-long aversion to Tav Falco. “Axel Chitlin”!

I don’t know a ton about LORETTE VELVETTE – frankly I barely know anything about Tav Falco & Panther Burns, with whom she’s played – but I do know that her cover of Bowie’s “Boys Keep Swinging” from 2000 is better than the original. It hits like a ton of over modulated bricks from the start, and keeps hitting while remaining a pretty faithful interpretation of the original (one of the dozen or so Bowie songs I truly dig). 

It’s from an album called “Rude Angel”. I heard the rest of that album around that time and reckoned that this was the only one worth holding onto.
