"Saturday 19 June 21 215 PM (AFTER news of purchase of Grovellors
45 in Paris). Dino Records: "would you like to do liner notes
for Vatican Sex kittens cd?"; Sure, I can
explain all those sober George W Bush (my cuzzin!) lyrics I wrote."any
ideas for name of record?"...I have never named a record or
a child in my life...either, not too fussy or don't really give
a fuggy...."VSK gives you a great big Kiss";
I like it! Tho image should be more Hanoi Rocks covering Dolls songs;
today, I'm trying to "Be LESS Flamboyant"".....
Kenne Higland and the VSKs

"Saturday 19 June 21. I walked past the OPEN regent
theatre and heard someone say "hey Chachi!".
A NOT ONLINE (fuck that shit!) actual LIVE Sir Paul salute with
Mr Losing Your Lunch Over the beatles and a lotta dad rockers with
less hair than I walkin round in Beatle t-shirts. We want the theater
and we want it...now....Mad Painter did 13 songs
and are stage ready for day of Thor Ides of July whatever
the fuck P.A.s lounge is called (That's
Union Tavern Kenneth-ed)
. Schmel herbie Hind (guitar) claimed my
A bass note on E string on 18th fret 'sounded like Grand Funk";
yes! Grand Funk Live album and mel "aries" Schachter a
major bass influence. Alex Gitlin on that Hammond
organ sound hit a bit of Felix cavelieire (rascals) at one point,
Al Hendry on drums and the return of Natalia
on vocals; she and Gee Julie harmonise well. even
Mrs Alex was there! Highlights of ride home; Schmel herbie Hind
drops me off at Groupie Towers II and in between discussing Coast
to Coast Am ("I last saw Jimmy Hoffa in Detroit May 75";
my Dad's mother's funeral; I was in Detroit also! "There are
no coincidences"). I did jump and roll as Schmel drives the
RIGHT way down a one-way street blasting "Two Timer" off
Kiss's Dressed to Kill....am I in Bloomington Indiana 1975? (I wish;
the music was better!)"....

"day of Thor 24 June 21. Kid Gulliver
covering Bee gees "I started a joke", like Peppermint
Trolley Company, "come rollin' crost my mind'. (Facebook
newsfeed actually - watch/lissen'
here.). As much as Kenne Highland's Air Force is
the 1969 soundtrack to Altamont, this Boy Joys cover is as 1979
as a release on KleenKut! (that was ken Kaiser's T-Neck NJ label
and the ladies in this band DO know him; " (Lydia)Koch and
sympathy" for all!). Ok matching New Wave outfits: warm in
Boston but "Hot in Cleveland" (sadly, Valerie Bertinelli
and I both descend from Charlemagne; caint marry mah cuzzin now
can I? or trousers fall daown now either!). David Armilotti
is normally a Neil Giraldo guitar player (to Simone Berk's Pat
Benter?) but this time, Blowfish calls them trills maybe?, echoing
Thrills at cantones in 1978 AND Ken Kaiser doing Nokie Edwards
riffs on the korps kover of dave clark five "I'm thinkin'"
(we also recorded "shiska like you", but Simone has
unfortunately leaked her DNA results to me, which is being guarded
by L/Cpl KE Highland at NSA, Fort Meade, Maryland). Simone
sans guitar; the once, but not At once, she put down
the guitar and girl got moves,yo! GLiDER's "dum dum boys"
had 'stoned out looks from the crowd". From one front "person'
to another (don't you just love when i'm politically correct,
gender-flecting all the way?), I'd ALMOST say ditch the guitar
which I told to Miss Brooklyn before she joined Da Rods as Broad
Stewart. My distant cuzzin Justine Covault (oy!
sign me to your label! This is elder abuse of your Uncle ken!)
DID ditch the guitar for her Ronald Reagan-era bass roots (Quest
For Tuna! who DID NOT cover the nervous eaters "smell like
fish"!) and she does a great Dee dee Ramone. before I speak
of "She's got the beat', I have said Simone
sings like pre-disco Blondie, but THIS vocal is more Go-Gos BUT
another Blondie KEN-parison is Sandy Summer IS
Clementine Burke! "SHE's got the beat"! ya aint got
a good drummer, ya aint got shit, "I aint got you" and
Dick Clark wouldant give it an 85, no one could dance and "the
revolution will not be televised"! Already in my top ten
and the year aint been half over yet! (sic: BGN, 1978). "we
return you now to your regular schedule viewing, do not adjust
your set' and to quote my Buchannon and Goodman '50s 45s; "Goodnight
earth people"! (Miss Lyn and jack Kerouac has same Lisotte
("the drunken fool") ancestor in Quebec City so you
want fucken keroauc on steroids, stick THIS up yer derriere "on
the top of your shelf"!)" (and I found, and gave
to WA, a first edition copy of The Town and The City!!!-ed).....

"Friday on No Mind 25 June 21. also in news feed from some
blues site; GA-20 (name of band). "GA-20 does
Hound Dog taylor. Try it...you might like it!". listened to
video: three hairy/bearded hipsters, two guitars and drums have
that raunchy Hound Dog sound; "punk-blues' if you will, in
a Jon Spencer vein with Savoy Brown-cum-Alvin lee growled vocals.
really dig this a lot! lead guitarist has a capo on fourth fret
maybe (Airplane Woman capos of first fret; she
told me at "Not too shabby at abby"). rhythm guitar does
bass lines just like Brewer Phillips. Speaking of which, on my vacation
day Monday,taking my Willie Loco PM Dawn nap I awoke to WMEX 1510
AM; "touch me" by my distant Doors cuzzin, that Lizard
King, THEN "Smokin in the boys room" into "whole
lotta shaken goin on"! Cub Koda woulda been
happier than a Porpoise Song being followed by a "yaller Sun
record from Nashville" (to correct Mr John B Sebastion, that's
704 union, MEMPHIS, Sun's address and, being bigger'n Elvis AND
married to my cuzzin Linda garreau, I DID induldge in a fried peanut
butter and banana sandwich c/o a $1000 royalty check from those
Vikings Sator for covering "Kiss of the Sonics"; no royalties
from Sirius radio tho...Oy!".....
GA-20 , yup hairy bearded
Saturday, June 26, 2021
"every day is a Saturday 26 June 21. channel surfing with morning
coffee ("TV eye on me" for stooges/rocknroll reference)
and channel 532 was on (?!). TFC; the flipino channel like
them on facebook! regrettably, I was never stationed there but
when I was at camp pendelton, Cali, my fellow marines had come back
and could talk tagalog which to a 20 year old "wild eyed boy
from Brockport" seemed exotic. Fresh
Take was the show and like THEM on facebook. (FRESH
TAKE!- TFC The Filipino Channel/ facebook). I am "following"
this and artists I heard/liked: Fana did "Out", she has
Beyoncé tresses and you CAN watch the performance I saw!
Sam Concepcion has been performing since 12; holy Michael Jackson!
and he wears a broad-brimmed hat and suitcoat performing "I
loved you better?"; he was the sensitive balladeer, why did
my woman leave me, modern r & b music. Bemused was I as he tossed
"bro","dawg" and other hiphop slang into the
convo, yo (ALL them moddafockas wanna be K. Dawg, yo!). This show
airs both days the weekend, Sat-dee AND Sun-dee like Ap Ka manoranjan
(the Indian "for your entertainment" show I usedta eye
in the '90s, yo). And now BACK to rocknroll! (God gave the Devil's
music to you! straight up from de debbil hole!). mad painter 930
pm Union tavern day of THOR Ides of July 21! (Thursday 15 july 21
from the KENglish). ALSO, since Miss lyn HAS said "Kenne what
about YOUR band?" Negotitations for gigs with Tsunami of Sound
and another with Greg Allen is 'discussed, not KENfirmed";
oy! I used a little Lt larry Newman guilt on them,
mine via the Gruberger Brothers! GLider also in da mix, yo, Cal
cali be chillin' in Boston with his mama,y o (I should eternally
talk like this: "I am a pain in yo' ass/ I am a really annoyant"...)...so
THREE bands and gigs being "discussed" til Halloween.
Neither Covid nor Joe Vig (read
my interview in club bohemia blogspot!) will keep down this
hard-chargin' former marine! (my gunnery sgt. "baby" sister
informed me; 'youre not an ex-marine; you didn't get kicked out".
Yep, honourable discharge....my other discharges...."Oh Well"
(parts one and two)"....
Fana (curlier hair in video!)
