Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation Oilers Song

“Let’s go back to the good old days, let’s go back to the Gretzky days. Go, Oilers, go, you can do it. You’ve got Connor McDavid, Nuge, Ebs and Hall.”

In what has to be the most Canadian display of hockey pride in recent memory, members of the Alexis Nakota Sioux Nation west of Edmonton perform a traditional song to honour their team and baby-faced phenom Connor McDavid.

“Whole Lotta Love” – Bernie Sanders All-Star Band (2016)

Well, looks like Commy-Socialist-Destroyer-of-Worlds Sen. Bernie Sanders pretty much tied dynastic corporate-monger Hillary Clinton in the Iowa caucuses last night. The takeaway? The American political process is a sick, money-soaked shit show; and that yes, the revolution Sanders is peddling is REAL and necessary.

The video above nicely captures just how out-of-touch, uncool and cringeworthy every single white, Christian Republican candidate is. Behold The Bernie Sanders All-Star Band: Wayne Kramer, The Bellrays’ Lisa Kekaula and many more pleading for revolution while jamming out “Whole Lotta Love”.

Euthanasia: Edmonton punk

Here’s a short documentary on Edmonton punk band Euthanasia. This would have been filmed around 1985 and includes interviews with the band and clips of a performance at Bonnie Doon Hall.

Both the band members and kids being interviewed are extremely introspective, honest and polite. With some preliminary research, it looks like Euthanasia released one EP, a 12” from 1986 called Living Heck. 

Not much audio from the band exists, HOWEVER, you can hear their song “Grub” on the Writing-On-Stone: The Alberta Compilation, erm, compilation. You can also download it from the indispensable Calgary Cassette Preservation Society.

The!!!! Beat

The gaggle of celebrated Stax artists were, at the time, much more popular in Europe than segregated America. This was due in part to appearances on music and variety TV shows in England and the like.

In comes The!!!! Beat, a Dallas-based music tee-vee program. As you can see above, the show featured thee voices in American soul and rhythm and blues.

For even more videos of The!!!! Beat, check out the YouTube channel of one Rachel Cummings.
