saturday 23 July 2022. BBQ at Micky Bliss house.
G. Gordon Griddy of Johnny and the Foodmasters
wished Miss Lyn were there; I told all i was on assigment and
watch out! you on Kenne Kamera!
So, in some words, Johnny and the Foodmasters:
if O. Rex circa 1974 did oldies with G. Gordon channeling Rich
Coffee guitar solo on "hey beat mon", that is they sound
and O. Rex and gizmos available from Gulcher if G. Gordon wants
to see how he stole from me, UpChuck Berry. Also, like that Fathers
and Sons 1969 blues album (alta kaka blooze guys with All the
& The Foodmasters
Mickey Bliss and i sang "Louie Louie"
mixed with '96 tears', video by Mickey's daughter Nicole whom
had to, 4 July 91, In Utero!, endure me jamming with "Uncle
Lyre" (am I "Uncle Gismo"?) Those Bliss kids sure
growed up since the Kirkland daze amd Mickey's son Alex
plays guitar in The Point and since,as
a lad, Kirkland XMAS party, he DID sit on my lap (age two?) that
was like Robert Jr Lockwood knowing Robert Johnson! These dudes
LOVE covering late '60s Apple Beatles and Alex channels clapton
on mayall's Beano album OR Mick taylor on bare Wires.
The Point -Alex "Bliss" center
Frank Rowe from Baby's Arm/Classic Ruins was
there as was Photographer Kathy Chapman who did
album cover of my orange Stanton park album,but we did not play
ONE NOTE; The KKatzenjammer Kidz will have their say! (Just ask
Lastly, Art Freedman in a 13th Floor Elevevators
t shirt agreed on Foodmaster's cover of Association's "Windy"
THAT, since were half of the Mag Four watching the Sickness at
the Underground (a room clearer!) G. Gordon solo WAS the reincarnation
of Larry Lifeless on guitar on same! Did i mention
"we all had a real good tyme?"

"saturday 23 July 2022 the morn, as usual, had on the WHRB
blues show. An old "friend" (all my friends
are VINYL! People suck! except for that cover of "I love
you" from '68) was played: "Space Guitar"
by Johnny Guitar Watson. A 45 on federal and a february
1954 recording (Dad had met ma and was in korea, motor transport,
whilst Elvis was drivin' truck for Crown Electric down memphis)..let's
quote wikpedia; "over-the-top playing and heavy use of audio
effects. Bo Diddley/Ike Turner/Frank Zappa/Jimi Hendrix influenced'.
"Nuff said, listen to youtube and NOT these lame-ass overplayin'
shredders that 'bore the daylights outta me". Also, this
tyme Etta James covers the eagles "take it to the
limits" with 100 more soul and ballz than those
limp-dick Eagles. Did some research; whilst James Brown's engineer
was recording the korps Hello World, EVEN my distant cuzzin martha
Hull aint no Etta James. 1978's deep in the Night is the album;
maybe let's cover rock '70s hits soul style,thereby BURYING the
lame-ass white-ass rock versions....well it made MY morning til
I sang "Louie Louie" with Johnny and the Foodnmasters
later that night".....
