A New Song From Buckner & Jones- At The Old Arcade!

It’s funny how things happen- I just posted Jerry and Gary’s video from American Bandstand in 1982, when I see this on Facebook. I had to share!

From Jerry’s Facebook page- “To mark the 40th anniversary of Pac-Man I have teamed up with my friend Danny Jones to write and record a new song called “At The Old Arcade.” It features Danny on lead and back vocals. He and his partner Mike Stewart worked on the original Pac-Man Fever album and the re-recorded version with Gary and I and have been close friends ever since. With Gary’s passing in 2011 Danny stepped in and sang lead vocals on “Wreck-It Wreck-It Ralph” the theme song we recorded for Disney’s classic movie Wreck It Ralph. The song is about friends and relationships hanging out in the arcades back in the 80’s. It was great time for those who lived through it. Hope you enjoy the song!”

You guys sound great! How about another arcade album- please?

Let Jerry know how much you like the new song in the comments section, as well as his Facebook page and Youtube channel

From this old Arcader to another- Thanks for helping keep the arcade lights on, my friend.

Keep Playin’ Like It’s 1981.

Pac-Man Fever Music Video By Buckner & Garcia!

Hey, Arcaders!

Time for a music video!

This one comes to us from 1982- courtesy of American Bandstand! Jerry and Gary never released any music videos back then (at least I don’t think so) but, they did this one show. For those of you that weren’t around back then- American Bandstand was a music show on Saturday afternoons that would have a live audience while the bands performed for them. it was hosted by the legendary Dick Clark. This was just after the release of the Pac-Man Fever album- at the height of the craziness (as you’re about to see!) Let me know if you remember this episode in the comments!

Enjoy- and Keep Playin’ Like It’s 1981!

 

Coming Soon- RayGunn Plays…

Hey Arcaders!

As I sit in the Archives bunker of isolation, I watched UberNerds play through of Luigi’s Mansion 3 on Facebook live… and it was good. It took me back to the Gamesters videos (you dudes NEED to bring the Gamesters back!!!!). So good in fact, I got my old gears turning. Maybe I give this play through stuff a go- and put a RayGunn spin on it!

So, in the next few weeks, I will start playing the classic arcade games you remember… or maybe you don’t. I will play the ports too, giving you my spin on these games and the time in my life when they came out!

Now for the surprise- the intro video I’ll use! What do you think? let me know in the comments!

Keep Playin Like It’s 1981!
