Every day is a Saturday 30 JAN 21 AND MA turnt 90
(left message). Mad Painter practiced, Al
Hendry-drums, me -bass and Schmenl Herbie Hind-
guitar. Alex Gitlin on keys and vocals is "Man
of the Match". This is all new toons for a Saturday 20 Feb
21 session. Cant remember titles but one had a Small faces "Lazee
Sunday"/"Good Day Sunshine" barrelhouse pian. Lots
of Zombies pop vocals and Al Hendry doing Hugh Grundy jazz drums.
Another song "I got a friend in france" about a bloke
was in Spencer Davis Group. but! MY FAVOURITE: uptempo maximum
r and b rave-up sounding like Brian Augur/the Animals; very mid-60s
british gospel-inflected r & b . MY point of reference: flip
side to "house of the rising sun" by Animals: "talkin'
'bout you" riding on the ONE....as usual a great practice
and a great Saturday night!".

Monntag 1 Feb 21 747 PM. Radio What Wave and What
Wave Dave London Ontario listed compilation albums he was
gonna play and one of Nobody gets on the Guest List
"Best Bette: one of my faves!" Playlist
has a LOONNGGG Kenne-centric paragraph even including Dad's grandmother's
Mount Brydges Ontario ancestry! (seven miles west of London; I got
GENERATIONS buried up there). But here reason I still do music:
"remember going to see Dark Carnival at Call
the Office in 1990 and they played this song, but had no idea where
it came from as one of them had it on a cassette compilation. I
gave them the info". Dark Carnival was my facebook friend Niagra
Detroit and (RIP) facebook friend Scott Asheton
of Stooges and brother Ron Asheton whom I don't
think ever made Facebook...Two Stooges cover a gizmo?!?!
Life's work complete!

Montag 2 Feb 21. 919 pm from Tom Hamilton of Lowell Street
studios: "that Mavericks gig is very cool. Keyboards
sound like horns sometimes. And I assume you are the MC-sounds a
bit with a Bill Tupper accent"...This in reference to 15
April 83 Mavericks show Hopelessly Obscure/Prime Movers, Phil Milstein,
HUGE Velvet Underground fan, was our Bridgit Polk (Warhol superstar
recorded Velvet's live at Max's; and if I was Lou Reed, ken
Kaiser on keys was John Cale!). This Pep Lester
cd now on my
youtube channel with 18 (19
as of Saturday Feb 6- ed) followers; one facebook comment
was "She's So Obscure" sounds like DMZ's "Destroyer"
and Tom noticed a Lyres vocal...BUSTED! Tom: "Thalia's Song....WOW".
also "I tweaked the audio- more full bodied" ; what a
Virgo! This was three weeks after Hopelessly Obscure/ Prime Movers
opened for Chesterfield Kings at Storyville so a "hot"
tyme for that lineup....now I gotta top micelf, agin!

Freitag 5 Feb 21. Brian Goslow, Worcester Groupie News, writes that
Captain PJ of WCUW, Worcester 'arrives at new home 27 jan

gift' to: Captain PJ- William LeBlanc c/0 NeuroRestoriative
181 Cordaville Road, Southborough Mass. 01722. he is pictured
with one of the Minions. Known him since Unattached/Hopelessly Obscure

passing; first met her 25 Walbridge Street Allston mass late 1980,
BGN interview. "Kenne, I want YOU to be quiet, we're not interviewing
YOU". last seen 2013 January Willie Loco 70th birthday surprise
of ME singing "at the rat" with Boom boom Band!).
She was outside on a walker with Rico from Kill Slug; a nice chat
with all, me and Rico Last man Standing. An in-between memory: late
'87, I walked into Sporters (West End Tennis Club) coz micelf and
Beachmasters ("She was our manager") double-booked Geno's
Portland maine. So Ken Kaiser had gig first. Lastly! facebook messenger
from Tonti re: Chet's movie; I said "Hell YEAH!" and made
Ken Kaiser a movie star! "Instant karma gonna get ewe'...Rest
in Peace Tontileo and EVERYBODY: "Give captain PJ
his flowers/puppets while he's livin'!" (Slim and the Supreme

kicked out of Sunday school?"...Captain PJ: "I told the
fucken nuns! Hey you get off my cloud!" Nobody whup his ass
with a catechism book!

day of Thor 4 Feb 21 from Tom Hamilton, Lowell Street: "Froggy
Goes A-Courtin'!!! We should add another guitar. bass is friggin'
AWESOME". Tom now may be uploading some Pep Lester
Radiobeat sessions which he'd duped on a cd for me;
I have 18 subscribers on youtube! or it 19? 50,000 Gizmos fans
cant be all wrong, right? "Froggy" I co-wrote with a Simmons
College punkette name Missy Deutsch. It was recorded
13 Feb 83 like that Dark Carnival song "She's my best bette"
and unrelease til now. Missy played rhythm ("sounds like "Roadrunner":
Ken Kaiser) and she was backed by Hopelessly Obscure minus Miguel
D'Amour. So I did other guitar, Ken kale on keyboards, Beachmaster
Bob, clann Mackenzie, drums and the "friggin awesome"
bass is the late great Jim Condon. I'm trying to pre-humously piece
together discographies of all I've played with. Grecian Echoes on
WNTN 1550-Am (it's in my MOTHER's DNA; her H DNA started in Anatolia,
ended up in Basque country, then went to England, it did!). Saturday
13 Feb, mad painter practice for Saturday 20 feb,
mad Painter, Lowell Street studio then 21 feb ken and GG
Julie overdub on Stigmatics cd. Busy AND
happy! try it sometime! I only get depressed when I am hobbled....Listen
to FREE or Die!".....
