Monday Monday" 10 Feb 20. On youtube watching a bit on criminal
John Bindon, whom had a career in movies also!
Turns out he was a "violent mobster" in Performance,
which was actually true to charachter! wikipedia filmography lists
him as "airport passerboy" in the 1963 from russia
with love (saw that AND in 1966, age 10, COLLECTED James
Bond bubblegum cards, before I went "Cowboys to Gurls"
and collected records and ex-wives....But it's the 1967 Poor
Cow that catches my interest; it's all Absolutely
Fabulous/Austin Powers but really FROM then, swingin' London and
tell you about that soundtrack album, worth a few quid, mate!
"Poor Cow" was Donovan's b-side to "Jennifer Juniper"
(had THAT 45!) "The Cryin' Game" and Stones doing "Not
Fade Away" also in movie; release date "meanwhile back
in the states" was only two months before Blue Cheer on tv
and "Itchyoo Park" on radio!"....

Til Tuesday 11 Feb 20. On this date 1977 I first met Ken Kaiser.
We both have German ancestry. On my facebook wall, Aybike
Celik Ozbey, singer from Turkish punk rock band Reptilians
From Andromeda whom were on tour (and returning!) to Deutschland,
found the Korps Hello World in Berlin, in a store. Pierre
le Coutre, our Flensburg Groupie news reporter found same
album 1980, same city! BUT, and we've had t-shirt sightings in India
and leather jackets in Finland, a photo going VIRAL is Aybike holding
the 1976 Gizmos ep plus Gizmos World Tour; Eddie Flowers says "yes
they are originals!". Because of such devoted Gizmo fandom
DO like Reptilians
From Andromeda and let's bring them to the States!
Airplay too! PLUS, American punk-rockers, Istanbul had a whole mess
of Stray Cats whom DONT have the blues!".....
New friends 1977, Ken Kaiser and Ken Highland

"day of Wodin Abraham Lincoln birthday 12 Feb 20, though
actually day of Thor 13 (!!!) Feb 20 0600-0700 was where it's
at. Pontoon palace,
WMBR 0600 started playing a "sweet sexy soul"
set that sounded like rene Sampson spinning at The Other Side!
Barry White/ "pillow talk" by Sylvia/ Jackson Five "Never
can say Gudbuy" ("T' Jane"?)/ "Head"
by Prince....some damn good stuff! Plus "Nuthin But a Heartache"
by the Flirtations....I BELIEVE WMBR has trackblaster and archives,

day of Thor 13 Feb 20. Supping and cruising youtube for films about
"English Civil War", I found 2013's A
Field In England. wikipedia
kinda says: "historical psychological horror film...shot
in black and white, set during mid-1600s English Civil War".
The Hylands were in Kent, UK except for the Puritans that settled
Scitutate mass with ancestors of Kevin Michael Allin, "performer".
What is interesting is an "alchemist assistant" meets up
with a couple Army deserters. They then go to "a field with many
mushrooms growing in them".....I wont spoil the plot but this
has GOT to be the most psychedelic version of Roundheads versus Cavaliers!"...

Freitag valentine's day. Digging through a box of "did i buy
this?" cassettes was Song of the Hills Instrumental impressions
of Appalachian Classics on Shanachie. Normally a Celtic label
BUT the antecedent was "hillbilly music" though this sounds
more like the PBS Civil War music. Classics my great-great-grandaddy
John McBee (born 1827 Virginny) woulda "covered' being a blacksmith
from 1850-1870 in Basnettsville WV (pop. 435!), like "Shenendoah',
"Shady Grove" and "man of constant sorrow" (reasons
I love Zimmerman's first Columbia album so much! "public domain"-
get them royalties!). There's three "heavies" from high
school on here also; John Sebastion (I swear I saw Lovin Spoonful
on a Gizmas Shindig ca 1965 playing a fuggin autoharp, which he does
here!), Norman Blake (he used to understatedly pick guitar on the
Johnny Cash show; ONLY his finger-pickin' was Be More Flamboyant,
but damn is/was he good!) and lastly; Eric Weissberg!! hint: I first
saw Deliverance summer '73 in a Rochester NY drive-in. There
we go, age 9-17 I heard these dudes and this is an "easy' listening
"Celtic/folk" album; Suitable For Reading! (I won Suitable
For Framing- 3 dog night, coz I mailed WCMF, Rochester, a postcard
saying Harry Nilsson wrote "One"; that was "Summer
of '69"-Bryan Adams!). In closing, again, mad painter
at the Jungle 10 pm, sunday 8 march 20 (Lucretia Daggers birthday
party!) and Kenne at 1045-1115!".....
