"Saturday 24 July 21. SUPPER: Gizmo at Indo (Independent) Meze
platter AND XTC's "making plans for Nigel"
as "dinner music"; a video I saw in South Carolina on
that Ted Turner channel (late at night was kinda a In Concert thang;
saw Cars etc. THAT was IT for Charleston SC New Wave). Walked up
to Jungle and Cazbats were playing
the Seeds' "cant seem to make you mine" (played at the
Vatican Sex Kitten's 25th twice birthday at Third Life Studio, Somerville).
Followed up by the Vogue's "five o clock world" with Chuck
Yeager's fourth cousin twice removed on 12-string guitar; I covered
that in the 1985 Hopelessly Obscure. Bob Roos did
the Grass Roots "let's live for today" lead intro as accurate
as Marshall Keith doing the lead on Slickee
Boys cover of same by the Rokes (sung Italiano!). Herr
Jaeger und Ich ist freunds von facebook mit Sid Herring of the Gants;
"smoke rings ' covered from that band (Metal Mike Saunders
turned me onto Gants Galore back in '74! This is VERY pre-Angry
Samoans!). lastly, a Who b-side I used to see Prime Movers
do in '83 (?) "daddy Rollin' Stone"...."I'll Show
Them Who's Mod"! Matt Robinson on bass, postman
by day, DELIVERS on bass! AND Downbeat Five Dan McCarthy
on drums ONLY reads the Boston Groupie News "if I'm in it!".
Ok, Dan saw thee Psych-O-Daisies at Milky Way, even dancing with
Nancy Neon to me singing "we aint got nuthin' yet"...that
is why he DESERVES to be in this band!"...ok, now his head'll
be as big as mine tryin' to get through the Door(s)….Essen
at Bronwyn mit Ken, Gee Julie und herr jaeger;
gut essen! We all of Deutsche-Amerikanisch descent....outside, Riot
on Sanborn Street (Patti Smith aint singin' THAT Standells cover
with DMZ!) Gee Julie recognize Jimmy Tingle! Coming
from Lily Pad Inman square to Vera's, formerly Precinct, now a comedy
club...well, my music career's been a joke; to quote Asa Brebner
"Tavern at the end of my career"! BUT it WAS a Full Moon...no
Geminis in site!"....

"Sunday 25 July 21. FX retro TV Eye was
happenin'! First off the 1966 camp classic of BATMAN
but after mein waffle und wurst brunch at Bronwyn and a three
hour cruise of sleep, the 2017 Kingsman:The Inner
Circle was on. (fuck all ages afternoon shows I
WANT a "TV Eye on me!") it's kinda James Bond on steroids
and a villainess has '50s retro resort where ELTON JOHN
is held hostage! I forgot what adjective Miss Lyn used but this
was over the fockin' TOP! (the word was proposterous-ed)
Elton forced to be a lounge singer but when Kingsmen/Bond
clones come in he goes "is it Wednesday?' and "WEDNESDAY
night's alright for fightin'' commences Elton stompin' on a bad
guy's foot with his platforms! So the good guys win and one agent
asks Elton: "if I save the world can I have passes to your
next show?"....ok...wait for it...."Darling if you save
the world you can have a backstage pass!""......
Great Elton soundtrack too! Though I liked friends. BUT: Neu
Musik! The Boss Hoss von berlin does country version of Cameo's
"Word Up"! "Country Trash Punk Rock"! Liebe!
mit der Hixx! And my own Bavaria to western Virginia Revolutionary

680 AM. George Knapp's guest was about Skinwalker Ranch Mysteries.
Bumper music: "Strange Days" by the Doors IN MONO! lead-off
track from their second album and Dad's distant cuzzin Jim Morrison
singing. Also I heard Cream's "Crossroads" a January 1969
45 that I had THEN (discography: sunshine of your love/ white room/
crossroads ALL in order and -68-'69 was seventh grade for me; junior
year at SUNY Brockport for future Gizmogul Bob Richert!). A joy
to hear both great '60s songs in mono on AM radio".....

Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea a 12
July 61 movie before the tv show mad magazine spoofed

"cookbook" where they sing about "your techicolour
daydream"...Psychedlic yuppies! "LSD for Brunch!"".....

BRAT (no baseball bat) I was tearin' around southern military bases

"every day is a Saturday 31 august 21. As much fun as it is
to watch an hour of the Beverly Hillbillies on
We TV at 0600 or two Popeye cartoons at 0700, I SHOULD, whilst listening
to Grecian Echoes 1550 Am WNTN, list all upcoming Kenne music. Whilst
having supper und gut essen at Brownyn Dino Records called.
Aram heller of Stanton park is declaring my 2004 followup to Be
more Flamboyant "the best he's ever done"...NOT
compared to Aram's solo in Strawberry Alarm Clock's "Tomorrow"
whilst he was in the Trodds (THREE people at cantones that night
and ONE is now on the "winning side"!). DINO has old boston
groupie news in basement and "loves that magazine". He
also loves Ugly Things (Kenne talks: part one of
my Gizmo gospel!) and taking out ad for cd AND (record geeks slobber):
LIMITED VINYL PRESSING! Craig Harrison, also a major record collector
and Shocking Blue fan sent me a WBUR Link (Wray; met him once in
DC - (no wait I met him in DC!!-ed) ) about the Dents.
I guess a drunken me Abbey Lounge 2000 (Man) A.D. DECLARED Mrs.
jen rassler, Suzi Quatro of Downbeat Five (THE GREAT DAN
MCCARTHY ON DRUMS!) HAD to meet Michelle Decal
and thusly, from one of my spare ribs was formed the Dents. I totally
forgot about that but in my Billy Ruane-ish manic, drunken state,
WBUR has reported it as GOSPEL! Know ye Vera lee! (Ida May's cuzzin…)...Wishing
drummer Al Hendry a Speedy (West) recovery; mad
painter couldn't Bungle at the Jungle 31 Aug 21. Hopefully he be
not illin' but CHILLIN' before Mad painter Midway 21 aug 21 (wasn't
I at Cantone's in '77 that night?). Only other gig I got is Frank
Rowe's birthday Midway with Unatural Axe AND we practice day of
WODIN with Matt Burns of V (and my Dino cd!) fillin' in on drums.
Everybody picked a "fave" and "I'm in love"
by Asa Brebner on list c/o Lt Larry Newman USMC
and too many bands to list and I believe it was Spetember the second
Asa tribute will be out. That and the Dino cd neck and neck in the
BGN charts....well< I married a couple Lindas (whom was my Jerry
Lee cuzzins!) and I DO play bass when I gotta and I Am left-handed
when I do what Gee Julie calls "chicken scratch" ("chicken?
yes scratch. I cant read you"...)..but ONLY Sir Paul had FIVE
records in top ten. aint been knighted yet tho "her majesty's
a pretty nice gurl"...."God save the Queen!/I mean it
