"Freitag 24 Feb 2023. Bevis frond the Scene WMBR. 0743. "Like Birds"- the Young Flowers. Late '67 Cream/hendrix trio from Denmark! (SO Hopelessly Obscure). Bevis was goin' on about the guitar sounding like Jimi's "third stone from the sun" but the drums are SO Ginger Baker! Now, a fact Miss Lyn WILL dig; this HEAVY! trio is in a Danish 1970 film called Quiet Days in Clichy! (I remember, but didnt buy the album; Country Joe is on it). NOW, for Miss Lyn to get the daily double, what author whom liked the Katzenjammer Kids wrote the book that is the title for this film?...(Who was Henry Miller!-ed). Kenne on staycation for a week; tv/records/books!"...

"saturday 4 march 2023. jammed with drummer Jon Cohan whom had been in a Humble Pie tribute band with Johnny Black/carl Biancucci at Right Turn. Proving our "Head's in '73" OR a secret desire to be like Thindertrain ("Thundertrain? Thundertrain?!"- artist friend Linda re-invented as Miss, 1 Aug 74 from the Gospel according to saint mach) let's Let the music do the talkin'! 'live with me/all this and more/rock and roll queen/Gudbut T' mach/ landmine/caught in a dream/misty mountain hop/communication breakdown/that's cool/diesel diesel/georgia skinheads AND to quote Joe Coughlin RIP 'who the hell would want to marry a guy who thinks he's Johnny Winter?" it was the Johnny Winter/Biggie ratt versions of "silver train" and "rocknroll hoochie coo"...i DO wonder how much of this Johnny Black song choice mach Bell can say "I sang that 50 years and 100 poptarts ago!""....

"saturday 11 march 2023. ran into Anklin Dan on my way to the Jungle, gave him a mad cd swap, I say...Next up at this red on red event, my tenth cousin once removed justine Covault got a mad painter cd; doing cd release party hype and they both WILL be there, Dan/Justine. The Idiot Kids from detroit opened up; glam/punk/hardcore with the melodic songs sounding like Neighbourhoods "no place like home" played at 78! Talking AT them in the Heavy Jungle parking Lot, they claimed to be "downriver" to which I go "Linkin Park?" Jams WERE kicked out as this band, being from MC5-ville DO indeed "kick 'em out". They even knew Charlie from the Stools who drummed with Gizmos August 2019, Outer Limits, Hamtrmmack (HE kicked 'em out!). I've been a justine fan since Grand Theft Auto; she and "Best Gurl on the Planet" juanita the sceen queen rock tight like they'd played in malachite or Swank and Jim Janota and Chaz hanson take a page out of the Johnny and Jumper cabes notebook; playing a practice tape of "landmine" to the former Underachievers drummer, Saint james sayeth: 'this is how rock nroll SHOULD be played!" cables/Unclean...dang, they might even be kin! Soraia (like ALL the bands on facebook!) has two lydia Lunch lookalikes in the band and my review of the singer, in a few short words (I'm a cross between Iggy Pop and Simon Cowell): Detroit Cobras Rachel nagy channels Tina Turner AND Wendy O. Williams! NO need to "be more flamboyant"; she is! Bonus: Kiss's "Strutter" with the guitarsit wearing a T. Rex Slider t-shirt playing BETTER then Ace frehely as played by me in kaiser Stadium 11 feb 77! Nice folks, both the Detroit and the Philly bands and my leg was singing "Psychiatic reaction" so sadly i missed Linnea's garden but the guitar always sounds good on them; call this: "saturday Gig" by mott the Highland! saw a copy in '75 at house of Guitars; the clark was Saint gregory Prevost!"......
