Sonntag 20 august 2023. "Gudbuy T' grooves/Gudbuy T' grooves/you
were a gud store with many bar-gans"....The Gospel According
to Saint mach whose profit (more like a loss) was the Wisdom of
Solomon (Gruberger): 'you gotta hear this Thundertrain record! It
crosses Slade with brownsville Station'...ok not in mood for "Arguing
with ghosts" "Ia jay co me" (the Rokes singing "let's
live for today" in italian). Somerville Grooves moving
to five minutes from melrose HIGHLANDS commuter rail, place was
pretty cleaned out but i bought my final 13; r & b 45s and classic
rock albums BUT in the free bin outside; TWO Chase albums! Plus,up
front WAS a Justine and Unclean album in local
section and since Anklin dan Shirley left it there,
I'll tell 'im wot's Epic: TWo FREE CHASE albums! mr grooves sez
horn rock dont sell much "folks might buy a Chicago album but
they wont buy a blood Sweat and tears album"...Me, attempting
to be tragically Hip and not "lose my new wave kool";
"oh yeah i was listening to BS&T then i bought Funhouse
about '71"....Gudbuy Mister Grooves! "So Long it's bin
gud t' know ye" (Noddy Holder covered Woody Guthrie? "dis

Sonntag 20 august 2023. took a listen to a Somerville grooves
lockdown purchase from about three years ago. In a bag of THIRTEEN,
I'd paid $1.99 for the Vilancicos album
on Spain's Belter label by manolo escobar; www.independent.
co.uk proclaims "Manolo Escobar: singer hailed as "the
elvis presley of the rumba' (or "spanish folk dancing).
wikipedia says he "was a Spanish singer of Andalusian copla";
either way it sounds great! lots of youtube videos. There is one
song that does a "25 or 6 to 4'/"N.I.B." descending
flamenco riff that I enjoyed; you MAy even enjoy a somewhere in
SOMEBODY's archives Dec '73 version of ME singing black Sabbath's
"N.I.B."! in a fake british accent no less! YIKES!

Dienstag 22 august 2023. the jungle, from "If six was til nine".
Frank Rowe had got a gig offer from Suzanne
Boucher, whose husband Tim jackson, drumms
on that five dollar copy of the Robin Lane album at High Fidelity.
Did NOT do my homework, so lettuce say there was a bluegrass trio;
banjo/mandolin/upright bass great harmonies followed by a soulful
guitar/drums duo and I enjoyed both, just it wasnt listed on Jungle
calendar. matt Burns of V drummed with Classic
Ruins with the 72 year old Jeff Beck clone Frank
Rowe and Carl Biancucci of Tea in China
(Varulven!) Jack Bruce-ing it; Matt Burns (Nightland) drumming.
All the hits plus Link Wray/Larry Willams (captain easychord singing
along; gave Miiister Binacuci his Michael MacDonald impersonation
later which "keeps you runnin'" (out da moddafockin' door!).
Last tune from Captain Encore was Cream's "tales of brave ulysses"
with Matt channeling Ginger Baker! ALWAYS remember ma would say
"my grandmother was a Rowe" (Frank and i discovered at
a Lyres gig we AINT kin) and the B and B (Biancucci/Burns)rhythm
section ARE on my Be More flamoboyant/howl of the soulcake cds on
Dino. Lastly, let's drunkenly say early '90s before my last marriage
to Taylor Swift's cuzzin, Saint Justina Covault DID channel my distant
cuzzin Me Patti Smith as we covered MC5's "llookin at you",me
at Tyner/Kramer and the Be More Flamobyant (hear it on Sirius!)
lineup pumpin' away. let's see, if the 72 year old frank rowe STILL
plays like Jeff Beck: "iyt's gonna be epic!" video by
Gee Julie on my "chick phone"....

"Sonntag 20 august 2023. SyFy channel had Twilight
Zone 0800-0900, even a show from 17 Nov 61! after
shopping at Somerville Grooves, I binged out on Pitch
Black at 136 pm, then 406 The Champion
of Riddich but NOT 636 pm Riddich.is Vin Diesel and
this grade Z trilogy is like a Plan Nine version of Mad Max. Even
Miss Lyn had to wonder why Dame Judith Dench appeared
as a spectre! Oh,well, what ELSE was there to do on a "Not
very august afternoon".....

"Sonntag 20 august 2023. A "Not very august afternoon"
(think I bought that Beacon street union album
five bucks somerville grooves) and on WMBR: A Program
of Jazz 6-8 pm. Charlie Kolhaise was host (saw him play
the Outpost the once and he mentioned his "student",
John Keegan.) What I remember before "Golden Slumbers"
was "imagine yourself in Paris in 1961"; I call this
"tootie toot Jazz". There was also a SPLENDID set of
jazz/blues performers; maybe it's all on WMBR's Trackblaster?
Either way, a splendid show to tune into; I feel like kerouac
OFF the Road and in Bed! Prone! Like a Coffin!".....

"saturday 26 august 2023. TYPED on "A not very august
afternoon""when's your next gig moddafocka" queried
my distant cousin Boston music hall of fame Sainthood Justina
and that IS saturday 2 sept 2023 Mad Painter at parkside
lounge with the "Slum Goddess from the lower east
side" (only captain Easychord knows what the FUGS I'm talkin'
about). Booked by Anklin Dan who has "gone
to the barge Inn and had a couple of beers". HOW EPIC will
this be? how about my fifteen cent purchase of Yardbirds "heart
full of soul"/"steeled blues' WITH picture sleeve bought
from "College Kids" on college street near SUNY Brockport
NY where later that month about Edgar Holland Winter said "we're
gonna play a new song for y'all called "Frankenstein""....
