"every day is a Saturday 4 dec 21. Mad painter practice
for Boxing Day (26 December) up Newburyport Brewing Company.
TOTAL "Head's in '73" cover choices by keyboardist Alex
Gitlin: "chirpy chipy cheep cheep' (Solomon Gruberger
added that to a 1972 mix tape and my then-tween sister/cuzzin
liked it); "Gudbuy T' Jane"- Slade (I had a slade songbook
but on bass I was TOTALLY Jay Gruberger!) (that night: "Kenne,
Jay was a good bass player but he was INSANE!"- Miss Lyn)
Lastly, as Carl Biancucci would remember from
O. rextasy, "Circle of hands" by "Uriah Heap (of
shit)"; metal Mike Saunders ("trust me I like Pat Benatar";
"If you're a five, metal Mike is a seven"- Solomon april
'74) turnt me onto the Heep; Sol and Dave mason "we just
disagree"). Schmel herbie Hind was da ballz playing the songs
perfect and Al Hendry (now, WELL Hendry! as in still alive AND
well) nailed the drum bits...Mad painter schedule amping up, like
them on facebook for facts I forgot!"....

Dienstag und Pearl harbor Day 7 dec 2021. 0600. turner classic
movies (just like when I was in a trailer in the Korps in south
Carolina!). The Deep Six. world war
two drama. 15 January 58. All star cast BUT! to me, the star is
Ross S. Bagdasarian as private Aaron Slobodjian
(Private? He's "In the Navy": SEAMAN!). He drives his
shipmates nutz playing Armenian music on 78s and makin' more Armenian
references than ANY Schmel Herbie Hind in practice. BEST scene:
They get liberty in san Francisco and he says; "I got a lotta
kissin cuzzins at the Armenian Social Club"! The cook of
the ship is a big fella and says: "what kinda food they got?"
Slob says "Rice pilaf and shish-kabob!" Cook: "rice
pilaf and shish-kabob / outta my way!" Then he gets onstage
to announces to these Armenian ladies whom you would "sur"
("Love") about his shipmates and holy Jan and Dean!
"two girls for every boy"! Sadly, Slob gets killed AND
kamikaze attack destroys his record player with smashed 78 rpm
vinyl on the deck ("that's the floor to you civilian maggots!").
SO whom was bagdasarian? David Seville! Chipmunks! "Witch
doctor' recorded two weeks before this movie came out 1 Jan 58,
released 1 apr 58 BUT when , in 1964, everyone was Beatlemaniaing,
I was in Manassas Virginny pretending it was 1864 (Frank Vahue,
mon onc, mort second battle of manassas; his mother spoke the
French, but in Civil War Rochester, he enlisted to preserve State
of the Union coz "doncha wanna be on the winning side"?).
One final aside; I KNOW I had that Christmas Chipmunks album in
'64, tho four years later I DID buy meet the Beatles. Notice on
that Christmas song how Alvin is kinda like Kenne. "Alvin....Alvin...KENNE!!!!…."

"Freitag 10 dec 21. WMBR 88.1 FM. Bevis Frond
plays my distant cuzzin captain Beefheart AND
The Police "Fall out" with Henri Padovani
(from Corsica!) on guitar! He was in The Police January 1977 (Afrika
Korps records "I'm a happy person") to Aug 77 (Afrika
Korps live at cantones 21 aug 77). GREAT fast guitar like Tyranny
and Mutation Blue Oyster Cult playing "sonic reducer";
Sting sings high AND fast! "Fall Out" recorded 12 feb
77 (Ken Kaiser records harmonies on "Make her know"!)
and released 1 May 77 (Ken Kaiser records "Wild Mouse' on
Mother's Day!). As the Afrika Korps was winding down, the first
Mr Robin lane joins on guitar (he'd played on Eric Burdon Love
IS album) and by October 1978 Police/Axe/Rat as I handed Sting
a copy of "Ich Liebe Du laurie"-Kenny NOT Roalnd (Schlagers)
Kaiser, two different bands The Police and The Korps....and henri
went the way of Tommy Bonham and Solomon Gruberger! The Police
has million sellers and the Korps had a million records in ken

"Saturday 11 dec 21. today let's check again https://secondhandsongs.com
all "performance: with a little help from my
friends by patty pravo"....ok
it's on youtube and it's a unique arrangement; 'she's leaving
home" harpsicord, "penny lane; trumpet, then the Joe Cocker
arrangement with vocals on chorus only! Sgt Pepper 1 july 67, patty's
Concerto per patty 1969 album seems to have pre-dated first Joe
Cocker album! (recorded in '68 tho). Wikipedia in Italian! I translate
this that she is backed up by the Primitives. "Genere; beat,
freakbeat:." "storia del gruppo" ("Ballad del
Gizmos?"). The guitarist really DOES ape the Jimmy Page/Joe
Cocker solo: my kinda 1969 heavy AND "batterista Average White
band' (check out "pick up the pieces" b-side "cut
the cake" purchased at Somerville grooves!) Robbie McIntosh!
"Italia da Glasgow"; also, since I figgered WAS hisself
"morira nel 1974 per overdose da sostanze stupefacenti"
("O.D.ed on life itself!"). Lastly, because Patty HAD
done a Aphrodite's Child cover, NO pulling wool over Alex Gitlin's
eyes (like SOME Kinks groupies: "you wouldn't know her' but
he did!) and let's see, news: Jungle the FRiday next 17
dec Linda bean and Gene dante ('90s Kirkland bands, being
frigate and Jet Velvet Trash and
I get high with a lil help from Toots Hibbert,mon!) plus Boxing
Day, old chap, mad painter and Kenne Highland Air Force (a TRUE
supergroup!) at Newburyport Brewing Company and I gotta
get ready for my WMFO interview, so this IS the week that wasn't!"....
