"Sonntag 13 November. aint nuthin more borin than laundry!
let's at 0800 watch Reelz and a documentary on
Rush called Beyond
The Lighted Stage! I gotta say they are so NORMAL, canadian,even
kinda boring but come across as REAL nice guys, taking tyme to talk
to fans and all. Drummer Neal Peart (RIP) admits he was a major
Who fan in the '60s; I did like Rush best as a power trio, the synth
stuff was just too.....80s! And lastly coz they did a record of
covers that influenced them (like i hope to do on www.dinorecords.com!)
how CAN you go wrong with the Blue Cheer version of "summertime
blues?" One last sidenote: my facebook friend Leigh Stephens
of Blue Cheer, guitar, posted some recent music and it sounded like
a cross betwen Dick Dale surf and hedrix whammy bar! maybe it's
on a soundcloud, :maybe i'm a leo but, i'm not a-lyin!"......

"Dienstag Ides of Novembre. I been following an all-woman
Deep Purple tribute called Strange Kind of Women.
them on Facebook!)
Starting investigating the members side projects and tonight
spotlight is on: singer Alteria, whom
you can follow. She really does project the vocals and emphasise
the visuals and could pass for Ronnie James Dio's kissin' cuzzin.
"Notizia Bomba! Con questo sorriso qui di dico che il 18
e il 19 Novembre suonero in Spagna con l'Orchetra Filarmonica
di Praga nsieme a Mr. ian GILLAN voce storica dei deep Purple"...in
any language 18.11 Vigo Spain and 19.11 Vitoria Spain Alteria
sings with Prague Philharmonic orchetra with Ian Gillan,whom
sang "smoke on the water". I watched a german concert
of Alteria and strange kind of women and she
can hold her own; I am Felice for her!"......

"day of Wodin! 16 Nov 2022 0700. Cranked up my $15 2020 lockdown
copy of Stones Got Live if you want it,
bought from Somerville Grooves.
This 3 Dec 66 release has been listed as "proto-punk"
along with Nuggets and Love's "7 plus 7 is"
and listening through "2000 man" ears, the songs all
played at "personality crisis" tempo with Future/Iggy
vocals by jagger! I mean iggy singing with the Dolls? sounds like
my songs on Afrika Korps Music to Kill By! BUT, the hidden
"I forgot' track (had the album as a teen but this MONO copy
has a teen's name magic markered on label! TRUE 1966!) IS: 'have
you seen your mother baby" sped up AND resembling
Thrills' 1978 cantones version! and JUST to quote george
Noory "there ARE no coincidences!"".....
