Jagger Peyton & the Scarlot Harlot

2 musicians and a rollergirl walk into a bar….
We will get to that part but first!!!!

Groovee Fortune is proud to present the new Jagger Peyton web site.

Jagger Peyton has produced over 1000 radio shows for broadcast and has created commercially successful radio specials including The Rolling Stones’ “Blues Licks,” “On the Covers” & “Paint it Blue,” in addition to “The Blues of Zeppelin”, “Ladies Sing the Blues”, “Real Blues Brothers” & many more. The Blueseum of Fine Art currently airs in dozens of markets throughout the United States. In addition, Jagger Peyton structured a partnership for their Blueseum of Fine Art & Roadhouse Revival radio shows with ROK Entertainment’s ROK Radio, a revolution in mobile entertainment, by broadcasting to hundreds of thousands of mobile phone subscribers in Europe & China. Both The Roadhouse Revival and The Lone Star Revival radio shows air on The American Forces Network (AFN) in 177 countries, reaching over 1 million servicemen & women & their families each week. Peyton and Jagger recently completed filming “I Got the Blues”, which is currently playing in the UK on SKY ARTS TV, as a direct result of “The Blueseum of Fine Art” radio show.

Oh Yeah! So what about that bar? Chris Jagger is a singer/guitar player, John Peyton is a harmonica player and in case I haven’t reminded you in the last 48 hours, I am the Scarlot Harlot, the red head with bedhead. Now what I am about to tell you isn’t very lady like but the Scarlot Harlot is no lady, Chris and Mick Jagger’ are brothers and the first time I talked to John Peyton, we talked more about how he could own his own roller derby team more than his web page…SO…

After uploading a new music file for John Peyton, I was looking for patches for a roller derby sundress I pieced together with old derby shirts. The Scarlot Harlot had a lovely red plaid school girl skirt covered in patches and wouldn’t you know…there on the front of that dirty girl’s skirt was the Rolling Stones mouth in purple. Oh my!

Having been hit on the head too many times it will just be easier to share a photo montage and it will also give Scarlot, the bedheaded stranger, the opportunity for self promotion of herself, the Texas Rollergirls & roller derby fans  she loves so much. Especially the self promotion part!!!!

It’s true the Scarlot Harlot had the Rolling Stone patch right over her hoochie coo. Oh Dear, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do to earn the respect of people she knocks down on a regular basis and keep up with sexy cowgirls like Bettie Rage.

Pixie harassed us so much of the time we just learned to ignore her. Scarlot with Satina, Misty Meaner and Pixie.

Gibson guitar headquarters in Austin, Tx.

Once there was unlimited time to gossip in the parking lot, gamble, pose for photos and  listen to Lone Star Revival to save our wicked souls!

Misty Meaner is saluting the Stones or trying to lick me. Probably both! Mean Streak and Amen don’t even care!

When you are just looking for the mouth, it starts getting ridiculous!
While we are talking about the Rolling Stones…I recently watched a documentary about them playing a free concenrt for 1.2 million people in Brazil. Unbelievable.

The Scarlot Harlot as a Holy Roller only had time to put KISS on this skirt. Go watch Hell on Wheels to find out why her skirt color changed. You also have to watch Whip It featuring the Holy Rollers and Marcia Gay Harden who John performs with at the 2010 University of Texas Commencement Ceremonies. No one played harmonica at my UT graduation! It’s a small world indeed.

CHEERS to Jagger Peyton!!! Love all your shows but especially proud of all your charity work and your enthusiasm about all you do!

Myopenbar is returning to Austin this year and we invited 50 of our favorite punk rock bands to come out and play. The result is four stages, in a square formation, with room for your crowd-surfing ass in the middle. And a cameo by a fifth stage: a school bus.

Fun Roller Skating/Derby Photos

Roller Derby Game

For many years, Scarlot Harlot of the Hell Marys and Groovee Fortune created and maintained the Texas Rollergirls’ web page. Prior to the split you can see all about in Hell on Wheels, she maintained the Bad Girl Good Woman web page and was nominated for best extreme sport web page by SXSW  2003. The crazy after party.

Chicago Skate Guide

Thru the ups and the downs of derby, there were many ways the whole thing could have panned out visually, dynamically, etc. When maintaining the derby sites in the early days, I looked around the World Wide Web to see what inspiration and ideas might lurk out there. Look what’s out there now!!! I want to share some of those photos. I’ll try to keep posting some more derby photos. There are many photos even the godmothers of the reinvention of roller derby have not seen but first the really old old school stuff.

Did you catch this derby article in the New York Times?

Scarlot used this on the Hell Mary Web Page which you

HELL MARYS….HELL YEAH!!!

“Hell on Wheels” trailer

And these are the days of our lives…..

That last one was too fucking serious.
This one is much more rock n roll. Thank goodness.

Funny how I was involved in the roller derby in Austin for almost 8 years and Bob Ray of CrashCam Films didn’t put the Scarlot Harlot in a single trailer for the movie. PLSSSTTTTTT! This is my favorite of all of them.

I loved roller derby when it seemed like a rock n roll free for all and there was a little bit of rocky horror picture show going on. Any one wearing a basketball uniform to play the sport will be viciously dealt with by the retired, yet unafraid Scarlot Harlot. See how the Fuck Emos song makes me act all CRAZY!

THANKS 4 READING MY RANTS! XXOOXXX, Scarlot Harlot
Hell  Yeah

‘You might as well watch the Rock Opera Trailer as well. I’m not in this movie either. You’d think I didn’t live just around the corner from director Bob Ray’s Condo for many years? Yo?

I made these puppet hands.
