"freitag 14 april 2023. sally o'brien's,
ten bucks and a LANDLOCKED Rat non-beach Party. Glowbox
"70s power pop, like the Flashcubes on steroids. garrett
from the Vouts aka Speed Fossil
on keys. captain rainman says it was Steely Dan's "King of
the world". rock, not jazz muzak, mid-70s. the guitars tuned
in two different keys like Ken travers, People in stores usedta
do in Witch Doctor. ". next up, from the Gospel of Saint
Coinneach, Speed Fossil: "Strat and gibson
SG, two different tones on the guitars; Blowfish and i would "like'
that. Elvis Costello vocals, but Joe jackson too. sounding the
way the Korps Hello World SHOULD have sounded. one song sounded
like Blue Oyster cables!
speaking of, Vouts and Johnny and the Jumper cables rat
'93, maybe. Garett has indeed stolen
from Johnny Black so this is a crunchier, more
powerful pop in a D-suspended Pete Townshend kinda way, almost
echoing Johnny's solo cd. I DO really like these Katz.
Girl with a hawk; children of paradise and hopelessly
obscure august '85 (my Arf Arf lineup) STILL doin' it! ""Let
it bleed' style slide; Richard Lamphear of Gulcher
Records Amoebas in Chaos. This Hoosier also plays hysterical keyboards.
Indiana discussion post-set.'60s folk-rock, three guitar sound
kinda Buffalo Springfield, maybe.
Lee Harrington of the Peyton on bass, Nancy
Delaney, Bird Mancini-drums. solid rhythm section!
Linda Price and Danny Coughlin of Witch
Doctor bewitch me with their sound, SO 1986! Linnea
brought some Seeds from her garden for "I'm in love with
my friends". a lot of jangle pop, like the Byrds playing
'all tomorrow's parties'. Garrett was a fourth
guitar on Mr. Linda eastman's "Hi Hi Hi"; did i buy
that again at Somerville grooves? TRULY, "A Good Feeling
to Know". Further proof that everybody stole from Lil Richard
and me: 15 march 75, i was in a high school band that opened with
THIS david Jones toon, bumper music on Coast to coast AM: "Suffragette
City"! to quote Schmel herbie Hind (in attendance
with captain easychord/ Al hendry/John keegan....toss
in Lt Larry Newman and I COULD have played!) "dat wuz fucken

saturday ides of April 2023. Renfield 730
pm, somerville thee-ate-er, davis square. "When I'm 67",
birthday gift from the maxwell clann of a gift certificate to said
thee-ate-er, so that was my saturday Night Fever.
Nicholas Cage as Dracula, lotsa camp horror
like Rocky Horror and Renfield is in a self-help group ca. 1990s
where one lady was in a abusive relationship with a guy who liked
ska "not good ska but bad ska like Fishbone'....more ska
references in a camp horror film!
Next, "For free" from a Scorpio cousin of Grace Slick:

"Monntag 17 April 2023. My facebook feed sent me a youtube
of Velvett Fogg doing "Come away melinda".
I tag Alex Gitlin of mad painter: "Painter
with Tony Iommi!" Alex: "Yes, and a very good album. Not
only that, uriah heep covered this on the first album in 1969."
Not to be out Obscured, did some research; yes mid-1968 two years
before WCMF Rochester NY (which Lydia Lunch listened to 18 miles
east of me!) DAILY summer '70 playings of Black Sabbath first album,
Tony Iommi WAS in this band for ONE gig. His COUSIN
joined and if it's a slow Boston Groupie News day we'll delve into
HIS discography. SO, starting with "Come away Melinda', heavy
neo-Vanilla Fudge hammond organ, thus the self-admitted early uriah
Heep influenced by vanilla Fudge-cum-mad painter makes cents (coz
that's all they got paid! or was it shillings, old chap?). Wicked
rare is Second hand Songs sez "Come away Melinda" is a
Tim Rose song! ALSO velvett Fogg (MORE obscure than Rising Storm,
tho I see Bevis Frond playing it on his 0700 WMBR show) is a cover
of "new york mining disaster"....the bee Gees done Fudge
style,man....oh wait! I HAVE made mad painter do a Fudge-y "To
love somebody" AND I AM working on a grungy "Holiday"!

WILL take "obscure '60s british heavy psych bands for 500,

Obscure e.p.. Only $12.00! vendor; "Linda garrow'. actually
I was up keene NH with the "Princess of the Trailer park'
in '90s, bought at cool record store for At LEAST half that. D-I-V-O-R-C-E
"I've divided up the albums; yours are all the classic rock.
God forbid you should an album past 1975'.
Ida May: I'm in mad Painter! Item B: 20 march 76, Gizmos record
"that's cool" IS the day the music died! (Alice Cooper

"day of Wodin 19 april 2023. A big ole shoutout to Vera's
in Union Square, Somerville, once a "dead Boston
Club". I saw a Divine doppelganger and wednesday is
Drag Bingo! set up in the same dj booth I woulda seen Easy

'day of Thor, Four and 20, 2023. Reefer Madness. Somerville
Thee-ate-er. Been hearin' 'bout this since the '70s but guess
i never went! 1936, "dangers of marijuana", VERY over-exaggerated
and to me ANY 30s film looks like the set on the Three Stooges.
It IS on youtube, but the big screen of a 1914 thee-ate-er and
a BGN birthday present of a gift certificate AND bandana Boy selling
tickets; 'are you a senior?" Me: "Just 67 and ah don'
mind dyin'"; "you look good!" NEXT up (lil poster)
B-Movies monthly 630 pm on the Tuesday.....one MUST Schlock Around
the Clock! Bring back the Orson Welles and/or Off the wall cinema!"......
