Lydia Lunch & Joseph Keckler
"Sonntag 6 Nov 2022; My Lunch with Lydia at Lily pad with a "Gemini on a Full Moon". Me, Gee Julie and Lydia chatting "down on the street"; i had fiddy years of Rah-chester Gizstory to discuss, anecdotes which I'll toss in on "slow" daze. let us first praise Joseph Keckler whom sang operatically in fluent Itlalian aND German whilst running a screen with subtitles; funny stuff about being a Goth etc. Closer of "I put a spell on you" was SPOOKtacular, gothy et al. Hey! like him on Facebook or like Bono "I will follow"; he even went to Iggy Pop's alma mater where my grandfather's second cuzzin coached football! As for Lydia Lunch, she is still very intense doing spoken word; hey, Gulcher interviewed patti Smith sonntag 14 march 76 bloomington indiana but make mine Lydia! (who did grow up 18 and 15 miles due east of me in brockport NY respectiviely!). Miss Lyn did photos et al and our favourite bit was about her screaming "post traumatic stress disaorder!". fINAL POEM was about her twin cuzzins whom owned Empire Comix (next to House of Guitars); dont worry my FINAL words to her at the Druid whlst gee Julie got book autgraph was "how are they kind to you?' (their mothers were sisters! ok, maybe i'll stop being Skip Gates and be Skip james)......altogther a GREAT night and next tyme she appear, my arsch goin'; i dont spend twenty bux on not too many people! Hoots mon!"........Miss Lyn was there too and she wrote a review you can read it here.

Ash Bottoms & 80's mannequin
Monntag 7 sept 2022. two weeks before hog brothers RETURN to this show it's mad painter! Ash Bottoms (sent me friend request; great lady!) hosts . facebook: wave radio boston rocks.

That mannequin is '80s metal-chick HOT! it must be "Glendora"'s grandaughter!

Littleton, mass is 8.2 miles south of where mine and Miss Lyn's mutual ancestor John Nutting was beheaded and head put on pole by Indians in Groton, King Phillip's War. The beauty of this place (near a record store!) is they DONT have to follow FCC guidelines, so show disintegrated into Sex Pistols on Howard Stern with Gee Julie as Robin. A short set from which Alex Gitlin is STILL high and once I know the rest of that computer stuff, will tell ya.

til then: 22 Nov 2022 tune in 7-9 pm for Jesse and the Hog Brothers!".......

("what is "more than your mouth could hold"? Punk rock jeopardy!") ... (Actually I have to correct you on that one Kenneth. The Dead Boys' "Caught with the Meat in Your Mouth" was written about a party after their first gig at the Rat when one of them found one of the girls at the party in the bathroom giving head to someone when she was supposed to be with one of the Dead Boys. I can't remember her name, but this is a true story, Stiv told!!!-ed)
