I went and took a quick look at that older KEXP video again. Unfortunately it doesn't have a listing of the band members' names. It seems that back then they didn't have a live sax player but they had a percussionist. Also, it looks like they had a different drummer, who they addressed as Superman because of the shirt he was wearing , and whose antics I found a joy to watch. I already posted that video way earlier on in this thread so I won't link to it again.It sounds like it, but I couldn't say for sure.
I wonder if you took MIserlou and added distortion what would you get?
Oh, Of course he did...
60s Surf and 60s Garage and 60s Blues and Psychedelic 60s joints birthed metal. Cream+Dale/Wray+Steppenwolf+The Doors+Vanilla Fudge+The Sonics=The Roots of All Metal and anybody who says otherwise is huffing too much of the 80s to be taken seriously.Yep! I think the hypothesis holds true so far: Dick Dale is the originator of what would become Heavy Metal music.
Plus, he blew the shit outta so many Fender amps, he worked with Leo Fender to create the first Fender 100w amp, an amp he finally felt captured the sound and fury that he wanted in his playing.

Nobody ever remembers Arthur Brown.
Granted for all of his influence he probably had the least metal name ever.
A few days ago, Duran Duran released a Halloween-themed album called Danse Macarbe. Besides some new songs, there's a number of covers, as well as a couple of their older songs that they tweak and revisit.
(I like the more restrained version of Night Boat)
