TMP 98 Doug Belote Brings the Street Beat

The A-list drummer has played and recorded with everyone from Willie Nelson, Gatemouth Brown, and Alison Krauss to Derek Trucks, Charlie Hunter, and Bobby Rush. Doug’s background as the son of a Lafayette session bass player and mentee of blues/zydeco master Lil’ Buck Sinegal fostered his roots inclinations, while mind-blowing exposure to jazz masters such as Johnny Vidacovich and Ricky Sebastian launched his love of that music. As he completes his documentary on New Orleans drumming and some of its top practitioners, “Street Beat: Drumming Below Sea Level,” he joins the Troubled Men in the Ring Room just before it all hits the fan. Topics include an injury, tax troubles, a proposition, a family legacy, church music, a first drum set, an all-night odyssey to New Orleans, Astral Project, Brian Blade, Dickie Taylor, advice from Ernie K-Doe, film production, Uganda Roberts, John Mooney, drummer impressions, a vast discography, Black music influences, Stryper, Anders Osborne, Jerry Douglas, Nashville post-Katrina, Steve Gadd, Rockin’ Dopsie, a Dylan session, a Stones visit, Congo Square, Grant St., career longevity, Willie Green, and much more.

TMP 106 Mike McCarthy Goes Guerrilla

The Memphis underground filmmaker, documentarian, comic book artist, and sculptor behind Guerrilla Monster Films is celebrating the 25th anniversary of his Cramps-endorsed noir classic, “Teenage Tupelo.” This semi-auto-bio-sexploitation-comedy-drama reimagining the director’s origin story is getting the royal treatment, with a new Blu-ray edition, a soundtrack LP, and a book about the movie and the makeshift creative community that came together to make it. Mike has an almost mystical connection to the midcentury pop culture of comic books, drive-in movies and rock and roll. He also has a knack for talking starlets out of their tops. In his words, nudity is the ultimate location. Topics include a new intro, distractions, a blog, a mood swing, Jerry Stiller, Fred Willard, a genetic taint, Tracey’s Bar, reopening, “The Sore Losers,” B movies, Doris Wishman, David F. Friedman, Elvis as inspiration, Memphis, Tupelo, self-mythologizing, movie posters, art bootcamp, Scopitones, the Antenna club, casting, art school, leaving home, a comedy obit, “Native Son,” a sculpture, Amy LaVere, a family reunion, historic preservation, classic rock, Fleetwood Mac, the Faces, Kristen Hobbs, the Cramps at Sun Studio, a legacy, willpower, “Cadavera,” a location scam, the MGM backlots, Dr. Nick, an autopsy, death of the dream, making fun, an art school documentary, and much more.
