"Boxing Day Sonntag 26 Dec 21. I REALLY enjoyed playing Newburyport
Brewing Company; kinda like a New Hampshire roadhouse in
some ways. James "Hoodoo' Ryan whom lives
there stopped by looking for Lt Larry Newman whom
had "25 miles to drive!' (rephrasing Edwin starr). Mad Painter
played for hour and half and being in the North Shore boonies, we
even had REAL kids (babies with headphones!) dancing to painter's
"Heep meets Mott' '70s sound; I coulda been back in Brockport
NY ca 1974 at the barge inn! Kenne Highland's Air Force
even got away with Velvet Underground and Stooges covers! A gospel-inflected
"God Don't want me in heaven and the devil don't want me in
hell" had the crowd doing the Holy Dance. Crowd and club staff
ALL loved both bands, we will be back and EVERYBODY got a free six-pack!
Newburyport? need to do some colonial research on this!"....

"Freitag 31 Dec 21. Lt Larry Newman USMC
handed out vinyl gifts to KH Air Force squadron. As 'is mum-in-law
would say, mine was "Spot On!" and "Brilliant!".
Johnny Chante Elvis: Johnny farrago (1968). born Quebec City as
Jean- Yves Belanger (no relation to me or Kerouac, though his
cousine include Miss Lyn, Madonna AND Celine Dionne! he was in
Les Mercedes, 1962 ye-ye group with Rene Angelil (the future Celine
Dionne). rene was in Les Baronets who did the beatles "C'est
fou, c'est tout' in 1964; that's "Hold Me Tight", same
album as "Komm Gib Mir Die Der hande" if you reside
in Lembach, Alsace-Lorraine. My distant cousine linda Garreau
spent our one year wedding anniversary Montreal and the record
racks in the Metro were amazing! I bought many a cheap Quebecois
copy of American oldies, like "please Love me forever"
sung in the French. A note that I'm GLAD I wrote: In mr Celine's
book, he took Johnny farrago to Memphis for Elvis's funeral and
hey Bruins fans! Mr and Mrs Celine Dionne BEACOUP GRANDE Montreal
Canadian hockey fans! (One of Dad's mother's distant cuzzins,
the obituary said he was a big Edmonton Oilers fan; must be those
Lockwood cuzzins too off to Moose Jaw Sakatchawan!"). So
Johnny sings Elvis songs in candian French quite well! "oldies"
as it were. had a well-known career! $3.99 savers price, but discogs
will sell you a copy for $5,49 and e-bay has a $13.95 copy! Well,
I;m not seeing Kiss open for Stooges tonight; that was 1973. But
Happy New Year Kenneway!"....
