Thor's Day, 20 Feb 20, only after "A hard Day's Night".
The Jungle, my vote for "most eclectic booking"
in clubland, had a theme of female fronted Goth bands.
Sadly, I ate the Brazilian buffet, watched Brazilian soap oprys
and like the Angry Samoans sing "Lights Out!". NOT before
listening to side four of Grand Funk Live album and "Into the
Sun" (it February 1973 again and i was hand-crankin' the mimeo
on my fanzine to Grand Funk on my lil sister's close and play!).
As for Survival which was $2.99 at Armageddon Records; they are
a great place to buy metal/hardcore/punk but all my old "hey
boomer' high school albums are $2.99! This'un had glossy 8 x 10s
of GFR as Cavemen! Play O. rex's cover of "Gimme Shelter"
next to Grand Funk and 17 year old ken Highland even hits the fuzz
power chord solo after the ending! My rhythm section was the Gruberger
brothers; possibly Solomon-age 21, jay-age 12! AND after the "Muff
Divin'" Gizmos meet THE Muffs (Kim
Shattuck, RIP), WFMU DID play O. Rex's "Gimmer Shelter"!
The GFR 45 WAS on the student lounge jukebox at SUNY Brockport (IU
was a pleasure with ZZ Top's "Blue Jean Blues" in '75!).
Also let me mention Radio.net > otrfan Old time radio fan radio
stream- listen online for free! 0126 i wake up to "I was a
communist for the FBI!"....woulda listen more but that's Coast
to Coast AM 0100-0500!".....

Freitag 21 Feb 20. Armageddon records Harvard Square specialises
in hardcore/punk/metal. Thus I can get the golden age of black music
(1970-1975) on atlantic for $1.99! blue magic. roberta flack. king
floyd. aretha. wicked picketts. spinners with and without Dionne
Warwick. But the "find" :
"Precious Precious" by Jackie Moore!
had it on an "oldie" 45 from Cheapo records, but never
heard it "back in da day,yo" ("hey I'm from whitebread
Rochester NY! I never heard Wilson Pickett!"- rascals Gene
Cornish on lil steven show). WhoSampled . Jackie-Moore. "Precious
Precious" was sampled in 2004's " Breathe In, Breathe
Out" by Kanye West featuring Ludacris. ALSO "1990 Nanting"
by Afasi Och Filty featuring Snook from 2003; these Swedish meatballs
are a hip-hop duo from SWEDEN! (well we all cant be Sator
covering "Kiss of a Rat"). Good radio: at midnight
WAAF played "Black sabbath" by Black
Sabbath, which i first heard summer '70 WMCF rochester NY. WHRB
blues show (0500-0900) tossed in some excellent Dylan; "obviously
five beleivers" blonde on blonde and highway 61 revisited "desolation
row". BBC radio wales: rugby world cup Wales versus france!
(I think France did win,they're wrappin' up the rap as i type)...lastly,
again: Sunday 8 march 20 Mad Painter (10 pm) and Kenne! (1045 pm-1115
pm) at the jungle! MAYBE I'll be at Tiger Bomb at Once, that Midwest
Mafia show starts at 1500 hours".....
