"4-5 jan 18 was a 30 hour work shift in blizzard;
a triple maybe? so a hard day's night and the squealing pig, brigham
circle and shepherd's pie was THE thing to have! Manchester United
versus darby counties was nil-nil. this is all from my facebook
wall: deborah staines, London groupie news: "Arsenal!
arsenal!". final score which i saw, Man United 2-0; my dumbass
joke is Morrisey was still depressed. BUT gittin' some Gooner gab,
Nancy Foster (New Age magazine)
queries; "didnt DC5 pull for arsenal?!"....there IS a
map by which region each team you go for; western NY-Bills, Boston,
patriots et al. I SHALL have to research this; ALL good Brit-rock
bios have our favourite rockers pulling for whomever....thank you
nancy, this gives me something to google!"...

"sat 6 jan 18; Boston rock folk sharing "dirty
water performed by simon ritt" on youtube to
me. being snowbound and instead of listening to "snowblind"
by Sabbath, I checked it out and it takes a Canadian (Ma's great-gran
and her Civil War brothers born Prescott Ontario but said Amerika
First in 1840s, moved to rochester) to do it right! Everybody
gets name checked, photos etc. and did i love "love that
Kenne Highland" and photos of me? preserved for posterity!
Got my flowers while fucken livin! even got to play with eddie
flowers! (haha!) Hey Gizmos fans! Simon
loves Unattached with Jamie Jetson
and Billy Nightshade, Gulcher recording artists.
BUT, London Groupie News, Gooners fan ala Ray and Dave Davies
Deboarah Staines posts "the inmates....my
ex husband Peter (Staines) Gunn on lead guitar..."
it's on my wall a ides of feb 80 cover of "dirty water".
I DID/do love the Inmates, gotta check out their
catalogue...pub-rock....GG Allin and I are actually
doing an album of loo-rock, for those with potty mouths....fucken
brilliant, i'm so FUCKEN brilliant! "and they hate you if
yer clever and despise the FOOLS"-Ken Ono Gizmo!"...

"saturday 6 jan 18, frank chip langille fiddy-ith
birthday afternoon show midway cafe.
bus to midway (my facebook wall notes), tokyo tramps had
vanilla fudge harmonies and sounded like "white lace and
thunder and roses (youtube) late 60s cream/hendrix power trio
stuff. there was a funk number worthy of Wool from Alexandria
bay NY (check out youtube for their cover of "combination
of the two" by janis!). "have you ever loved a woman",
1961 freddie king 45, sounded more like Cream than the august
75 album EC was here, which i gave a good review WIUS tipsheet;
Tramps drummer even kinda look like Ginger Baker!
(ginger hair). greedy geezer did solo 12-string Let It Bleed songs
bluegrass style in between sets. vagabond kings were a thin lizzy
tribute band with a Kenne klone on bass (as was birthday boy;
Yukikio from Tramps did a video melange of the
night!). This did NOT seem like a Sara Billingsley
show but she actually saw the two guitarists of vagabond
kings when they were in steel assassin opening
for metallica channel '84 and knew my twin Chip! my world gets
smaller....More research on Steel
Assassin.: 9 jan 86 they play the channel but i was
at chesterfield kings 10 jan 86 and also in hopelessly
obscure/johnny and jumper cables; now in Hopelessly Quirk and
Kaiser and the jumper Cables. Guitarists were "note-for-note"
double thin lizzy leads, been together 33 years (41 for me and
kaiser tho!), ghost of Solomon Gruberger would have liked them!
lastly, Stone Crusher, their singer impressed
shirtless in zero degree weather, emphasis the visuals and projected
vocals....i can only handle one Bon Scot vocal per cables gig,
this guy was Percy Plant/david byron (uriah heap ("of shit"-gruberger
joke for carl biancucci) and rob halford, judas
priest sad wings of destiny, $1, nuggets record store. i think
they admitted to a Priest influence plus "metal with progressive
tendencies". Tokyo Tramos ate at Doyle's,
I introduced them to Orchestra Luna's singer AND....new gig!
stop calling me frank, sally o'brien's! (please warn
Raggs the cat, animal crashing post-gig!). this
will be an MJ Quirk birthday gig. Ken
Kaiser CANT make this gig, i think but i'll cobble a
band (swamp yankee ingenuity)....why we'll call it Stop Calling
Chip Frank!!!! ("thanks for coming can't wait to see what
you'll write about this"....Beer and Loathing in Jamaica
Plain!")(Highland S. Thompson submachine gun)"....
