monday 8 april 19. Glider practice. KOTO, Salem 11 may
19 with classic ruins FUs and skrewcart.
A very good practice. the Jetset songs are basically Ramones-cum-Afrika
Korps. Al, guitar, wants to buy the Kenne "trilogy"
on Stanton Park even the 500 pressing Five Beers Ahead of My Time.
"Be More Flamboyant" and "She's not just another
girl (she's a darling)" were done; remember I'm on bass,
so sing like me but do Carl Biancucci's bass
lines which I've only seen for umpty-nine years. Captain easychords
fills out the sound, Cal Cali on drums is a booking machine....I
know some 60s oldies were tossed in there but wait! "How
Do You Know'-Lyres! I lernt it in my trailer in South Carolina
back in '79....glad to be playing it out live! (like once a week
gigs; me: "Cal did you send boston groupie news gig listings?"
"yes i sent them to Paul"....that's Blowfish
in the New wave on VARULVEN!!!!!

THE last busker's bash til fall. Leon Rich (played
with anderson Mar (RIP)) puts this on, so first off Windowsill
and Ashtray (LOVE

channel the Shaggs covering Jon Richman's "my little dinosaur"....they
have videos on facebook page, lettuce say folk duo, lady sings
great harmony, dude plays guitar and sax; wicked nice, invited
me to some house party jamboree but that saturday is Mad Painter
practice (C-note Hull Mass. friday 3 may 19!).
Steve Painter (12 cent donkey (Gulcher)), whom
I met at a Mr airplane man show abbey lounge 2000 came cross the
river JUST to see Gizmo does Zimmerman; he did, indeed, correct
me that all my Spider John Kenne renditions of trad folk/blues
were from first 1962 Dylan album AND he says my finger-picking
DOES sound like old Delta blooze....ok, I'm happy! Blind Lemon
Jefferson was 300 pounds also! Shawn
Deidre, need to mention that busker, does great '20s jazz
songs replete with beret; see her and Leon in Harvard square!
or the "pit" in davis, near somerville theater. The
Glider Boyzz (no relation to "Crash street kids")
"hogged" rest of show; captain easychords,
solo piano doing ringo's "it dont come easy" and sniff
and the tears "driver's seat". cant forget Ethan,
solo bass, had played with Not the Beatles in Harvard Square plus
That Band (bring back The Pit!) did a bass-slappin' rendition
of "all day and all of the night". Me, captain easychords
(guitar/piano) backed up Cal Cali on velvet underground's
"what goes on". Closer jam was Pink Floyd's "us
and them" (a b-side i think; youtube!)
which i'd never played before but i followed ethan. piano was
Leon Rich and Sharon from Ginger Ibex; Cal CAli/captain easychords
backing vocals;Windowsill and ashtray dude-sax.....playing to
four people who LOVED it! Now THAt is true art, fuck the rumble,

friday 12 april 19. buy amtrak tickets to Detroit, Gizmos
saturday 27 July 19. head over to tavern at the
end of the world. Venom and Mayhem open.
Dmuchowki twins from Flight of Fire. A T. Rex lineup;
acoustic guitar and Micky Finn congas. Highlight, since they's from
my dad's hometown of Detroit was Bob Seger's "Turn the Page".
great harmonies too. Great harmonies in Corolla Deville
also, they being three Sister Act; aint nuthin like "blood
harmonies" ala Eberle Brothers. A good North Shore Stones-meets-Dawgs
rock-n-roll set, a lot of 1965 Keith Richards leads (these ladies
are stone-cold Stones fans). ALWAYS good to see Gay Hathaway
who was telling me some line I made up on "reincarnation' (orange
Kenne record on stanton park) was "genius". Also (1985)
she was fired from The Bats, was depressed, allegedly I said "fuck
this shit! let's jam on "born under a bad sign".....see,
the cure for the CURE is to jam on da blooze! Had to leave after
"Terry-go-round" to catch a somerville bus, since construction
is Grand Funkin' up travel everywhere.
