Freitag 18 November 2022. after dining at macchu Picchu, attended
international pop overthrow at Union tavern.
Six bands! Ten bucks! i mostly had come to see the Hummingbord
Syndicate, having played "Hanky Panky" at Cantone's
with John Macey October 1978. There were a lot
of Rickenbachers ringing in all the bands and John McGuinn Macey
was no diffrent. Killer rhythm section with Stiv Stomper
Gilligan on five string bass and Clark Dark on
drums, whom I;d done a Dylan tribute with. Guitarist and keyboards
good, but what really should out was Amoebas In Chaos
Lynn Shipley channeling K D arling Kelly Knapp on some
lead vocals. Just to push some Gulcher product, Lynn says her
Hoosier releases are not on Gulcher reissues and "I wonder
where bob's living?" (answer; Gizmanager/Mogul Bob Richert
runs Gulcher records out of orlando Florida). Smitt E
Smitty, Figures on a Beach, supplied drum set and he
'loved' my comment of "A gizmo and a Figure on a beach watching
an Amoeboa in Choas onstage. "The Midwest can be alright".
Stigmatics headlined and played to MORE people
than "The Night Before" at Middle East AND, my dear
reader Sandy Summer WILL be happy to know Bob
Whitelock of the Lines drummed this gig also, BUT watch
him be David Lee Roth in Everybody wants some,Van halen cover
band that actually makes MONEY!). LASTLY, met Dmy Syracsue homeboy
Anklin Dave, Red on red distributer; good people!
Fun nite! 19 years of IPOP! 66 plus 19= 83 and hope i live long
enuff to see Moore!"......

Jesse and The Hogg Brohters
"Sonntag 20 Nov 2022. Jesse and the Hog brothers
at Midway cafe six pm.
Rob Lyon whom did Gizmos podcast and I went
to the pizza/sub place next door; i got a sub and coke ten bucks
and he did the two slice special and though a fan of "Human
Garbage Disposal" I DIDNT eat the leftover crusts.
this Lexington kentucky punk country band came out in orange
jumpsuits and opened with my sixth cuzzin GG Allin's "hangin
out with Jim". Rob plays a two string upright bass
tuned to E and A; Holy Morphine! The guitar/bass/drums is your
basic johny Cash but Jesse Braintree has bizarre
Gizmo-cum-Zappa lyrics and also plays kazoo. (I DID autograph
Rob's Gizmos releases; Jesse: "The Gizmos are like an obsession
to me")But dudes...Kenne Hogg! gits out in the crowd dancin'
with some gal (photo) and plays a lil toy piano that has a hogs.
great guys returning in April/May and yes Jesse wants I and I
to play Boston/Portland. What else can top this? Asa Brebner's
birthday with Ash Bottoms! (Mon 21 Nov 2022). A damn fun afternoon;
I got half a notion to go visit Losiville Kaintuck "ridin'
the dawg"! (that means tking the Greyhound for y'all massholes".......
