sunday 20 jan 19. jay allen still had his messaround and everyone was great, but, to me highlights were Tony Kacynski (Figures on a Beach) covering "I am waiting" off the UK pressing of Stones Aftermath AND the Baabes doin' Donovan's "hey Gyp" eric burdon style. Baabes singer reminded me of a 1982 Ken Highland singing with Hopelessly Obscure at Streets or Cantones; he not only "moves like Jagger", he has james Brown fancy footwork like I did at that age! (probbly before I broke my foot). A great shouter too; electric guitar and raw vocal also sounded like me thursday 18 march 76, bloomington indiana doing the Rockabilly Yobs record. Great stuff! thank you Tony Kacynski for ride to tavern at end of world; about ten folks watching Patriots game, Natalie Flanagan did a couple songs but I passed on being half-time entertainement since I DO thrive on PEOPLE! (so did Jim Jones! read his bio in true crime section third floor harvard Coop!). Natalie and I reminisced how long we known each other and she talked about allston in the '80s, like MOLLY'S which became the Kells; they had wet t-shirt contests back then! I told her the Cage (?) was the downstairs club; had a gig with Dave Bass and the Grovellors but it got cancelled (though we did a Stanton Park 45, so studio project?) I damn sure DID miss out on this wet t-shirt contest!

Freitag 25 jan 19. desecrated hollows. studio 234 cambridge mass. eric zinman and eliot cardinaux cdr release. They trade off on piano, poetry and drums. when i played lily pad with Grex and FABLE GRAZER, Eric was the drummer, though he is equally adept at piano and recites poetry in a fiery Ferlinghetti kinda way. Cardinaux is also awesome, impressing me with his Monk-style playing; after a jam after the two sets, Rob chalfen, club 186, DID inform me he WAS playing Monk's "Round Midnight" and then we discussed rare jazz records like two guys on the outskirts of town reciting burned books in Farenheit 451. A good "neo-beat" "Hey Beat Mon" evening augmented by supper at Mu Queca! (viva Brasil!

("Penrith")?
