A rare lo-rez clip I crafted of a TSU Tornadoes cover tune by Tim Kerr's late great post punk soul band from their one and only self titled release on In The Red Records. I shot the live footage at San Francisco's Cafe DuNord on a 2001 summer tour stop. Kerr suffered a major skateboarding injury shortly thereafter and they disbanded on the eve of a then cancelled Japanese tour. Edited on some then new home gear, I used every wipe, fade & bit of found footage I could to compensate for the lack of other camera angles, or other expertise. uh, Enjoy.
Tim Kerr ( Big Boys, Poison 13 )on guitar Bob Vennum ( BellRays )on bass Kari Luna ( Gospel Swingers, This Damn Town) on Hammond organ Steve Adkins ( Blacktop) on drums
The mighty Lisa Kekaula of the BellRays typically sang the songs, but here she's just doing her thing on tambourine.
The original version was put out in 1968 by Houston's funky TSU Tornadoes, who recorded for the Ovide label, and later Atlantic & Stax/Volt. They also backed up Archie Bell & The Drells on his very similar flavored "Tighten Up".
