Bob Cenci / Jerry's Kids
friday 20 july 18; my brother's granddaughter was one years old! and as a great-uncle, I was at a hardcore show. I coulda ran FOR PRESIDENT with Stormy Monday as my Blaze Starr! katie the cleaning lady gave Gee Julie spare earplugs; Jen E. Talia shot some excellent footage (she also owns a copy of Hello World!), saw "Torture" and Larry Kelly from Kill Slug plus Big Daddy "always a pleasure sir"; I'm just glad that Big Daddy's still around! (we have same mayflower ancestor!); Tom Hamilton whom did the orange Kenne album did sound for Straw Dogs/Jerry's Kids....there were many others but this aint fucken Lisa Robinson's rock scene and I been to max's kansas city and "senator, this is not" max's Kansas City! (Ann Richards! more punk than Keef!). Straw Dogs were excellent, kinda more metal but classic metal; I know Sox was a Blue Oyster Cult fan before he got the Black Flag album. We should pay him tribute! He was my Allston neighbour telling me about Indy's Zero Boys at the train stop on Comm Ave down the way from where Aerosmith wrote "movin' out"; whenever I'd party over there, i thought "TV Party" sounded like afrika korps' "fox lane" played at 78, so of all the bands that came out of Boston College's The Manics, Sox remained "punk" vs the MIA's "new psychedelia" or 007's TwoTone sound. "young fast Iranians" still a good song, my roomate (80s) had straw dog's "pennies from heaven" on answering machine. also 1984, hopelessly obscure open for stranglehold summer '84 johnny d's allston; Sox: "kenne can rockin bob borrow your amp?" Me: "who the fuck is rockin' Bob?" a spendid introduction: he's GOOD PEOPLE! sez I! even gave me a screen protector for the MC I-phone V! ran into him north station near Bobby Orr and Chet's, so A Promise is a Promise (not to get sued, that is a splendid Ace of Hearts Lyres album) so i caught Jerry's Kids farewell. Every song sounded like "I got a Right" by Stooges played at 78! though Bob stuck to Tony Iommi barre chords, so black sabbath at 78 i DID see God..."foot hurt mon" said Bob Marley so I missed out on Kenny Chambers but did see Mrs Kenne (Rona) as Justine gave me an Unclean cd; I loved Grand Theft Auto, so I know is more of the same "Joan Jett meets the Tazmanaian Devil!" there that's a good Lester "it made my dog die" Bangs quote. and since The Midwest CAN be alright, I saw Yuki LaVolta stroll in and "success is the best revenge"; the Reppelants REJECTED by Gulcher, Naptown punk but friday night Kurt may as well have been Kenne Gizmo with that crowd! (actually, counting heads,he DID outsell the Gizmos mideast downstairs; we only sell out in the Midwest. otherwise, I've NEVER sold out! people-wise or commercially! Kenny as Lemmy!".....

Geezer has HIS REAL Kids in the Bayou Band Orchestra, lotsa good-tyme cajun-zydeco; the "Geezer Compound" has a lake ,chicken and turkey cages etc. used to be Britton's Pond, a granny on my dad's side, still researching THAT!

(videos by Ron Rudy and my twin Viking Frank Chip Langille onstage sans puppets).....let's see,Chuck Berry,"Born to be wild", "whole lotta love" was INSANE! I put the microphone where the groundlings were, we had Margaret ramsey Ormonde and Sarah Billingsley singing along! (long tail on why they in.....Stoughton?!?!?).....MC5 "black to comm"....hawkwind "silver machine".....more of same saturday night Lynnfield but TODAY is day Georgiane Fulgham gets married to Bing, a North Shore music vet who's putting on a "jam".....with the Gravedancers! reasons I'm still alive....Heaven looks DAMN good, purgatory is.....stuck on North Shore with Matt Gilbert! hahahahha! a quick tail: when the Georgia Skinheads beat up Georgianne at my 1988 birthday party on Comm.
