Historic East Greenwich Main St
Biscuits n Gravy for breakfast
"spent Saint Paidraig's Day in a state founded by ancestors of Alice
AND Highland, that meaning commuter rail to Providence Rhode Highland. WHERE
shall I go from KENNEdy center? why the 14 Ripta West Bay bus is JUST waiting
for me! Dad's ancestor Susannah Spencer Sweet was born 4 march 1698, so THIRTEEN
days after her 219th birthday, I was "dealin' with the Dead" in the
ole east greenwich cemetery in 40 degree weather. looks like i walked a mile
of HISTORIC east Greenwich Main Street, founded 1677 by BOTH my parent's ancestor
John Spencer (no Blues Explosion!); Ma's Baptist ancestors all left for south
shaftsbury Vermont in 1762 and the family ended up Brockport NY 1833. Quite
a nice town I DID take photos; brunch was Dante's
Kitchen, "american fare with southern flair" so eating $9 biscuits
and gravy = southern birth, Yankee Heritage and one big ole Cybil War! Seems
BOTH my parents have roots in West Bay, I SHALL RETURN and glad they followed
Roger Williams here; maybe that's why Ma had Roger Williams albums on KAPP?
(photoshoppe muzak man and colonial RI founder together!)".....

"saturday 18 march 17, in '76 rockabilly yobs was recorded and
first Gizmos rehearsal, i believe, all in Gulcher #4, i think...BUT
during IU's unbeaten Bobby Knight basketball season, I'm tuned into WEEI AM,
IU getting a new coach...from Indiana and only five wins? meanwhile march madness
kicks off, and west virginia mountaineers beat Notre Dame so i googled and yes!
my granddaddy McBee's second cousin Fielding Yost had a fierce rivalry with
Knute Rockne, so Coach Yost was smiling from his "mee-che-gan" grave.
After shopping at Haymarket (though I'd rather be listening to After Bathing
at Baxter's!) Ken and Gee Julie ate at mu
que ca. vegetarian plate (FOUR sides!) only $9.95. Brasilian food and music,
which I SWEAR was same khords as Kinks "No Return" off Something
Else. Then my huffington news app about five pm anounced chuck berry's death
at 90. end of era but lets look at the beginning: I buy Beatles second album
fall '68, wonder who is "C. Berry" that wrote "Roll over Ken
Kaiser"; early '70 my cuzzin lets me borrow "johnny b. goode"
b/w "around and around" in in march 1970 at some Greece NY mall record
shoppe, Chuck Berry's greatest hits, 1964, mono $1.57! I had a guitar
by christmas...and will STILL be playing chuck berry licks with club-linehan-a-go-go
father's day out of the blue fundraiser! I' m actually NOT sad chuck
berry died coz Two Great Guitars (on chess) he's back jammin' with Bo Diddley!
and Jay Gruberger is on bass! and they're playing "kenne highland
at large"! can we add Link Wray to the mix....oh wait, I emulate
all THREE (holy trinity! eddie cochran's "three stars"!) every
tyme I DO play guitar with club linehan-ago-go! so 47 years of lissening to
chuck berry= 75% of my life and half of his, kinda, RIP Chuck Berry".....

"sunday 19 march 17; again, a Gizstoric 1976 Gizmos Friday weekend but
ok, maybe I'm NOT 19 anymore coz: Ida May: foldin' mah white Sox and other laundry
a-lissenin' to WJIB's country memories (BOB BITTNER!) and ole Buck
Owens come on with HIS original of "act naturally" so i usually
sit 'round the imobile home a-pickin' and a-grinnin' when I'm not ?? posing
Kenne for my birthday party invite (click the link to get the invitation!).
Fire and Ice down copley sqaure 630 pm sunday 2 april.(and see jiblantos
saturday 1 april, midway pm show, I SHALL be holding court!) Fire
and Ice....WILL it be as good as Black Sheep singing Free's "fire and
water" at brockport ny high december "head's in '73" OR even
me covering it with the brooklyns, pre-Da Rods? item C: reading Sybil
at 1369 coffee house, inman square, free cup of coffee c/o an antique Gee Julie
card then D: supper with Gee Julie and Miss Lyn at the Inn Square S and S Men's
Bar (Plan Nine/Hoplessly Obscure july '83!) and (The E-Types): rest of day read
all the good parts til almost midnight of that Ministry dude's bio c/o Blowfish.
"you cant sit down"? you cant put down! sex, drugs, rocknroll and
Aimme Mann? the young snakes even? synchro sound? loved the boston references
plus Chicago hockey. For a guy born days apart from John Keegan, we all
got the same classic rock taste and, like me/slickee boys/jeff dahl (guarding
the pentagon!) seeing ramones october '76, mister ministry and ERIC BOUCHER
(jello biarfra) seeing ramones janaury '79 boulder colorado; Ministry mofo (Al
Jourgensen we're talkin' 'bout here-ed) even had a punk-rock gurlfriend
whom took him to ramones otherwise he'd still be lissenin' to classic rock!
(or classic country like me and GG Allin; those guys released country lps, Jody
Moore has our SMILE (unreleased) on her phone, though it was also on myspace)....i
may quote from this book from tyme to tyme as i research certain dates and facts
and what was I doing (NOT selling as many "units" as Ministry, that's
a damn fact!) (though 50, 000 Gizmos fans cant be ALL wrong can they?)...hey,
abbie hoffman was even more punk shoplifting 45s in the '50s....STEAL
King Kenne's Birthday is April 2

at Nantasket beach with a Hugenot minister ancestor of a Jumper Cable AND, the
ancestor of Brittany Spears! that was 20 may 1630, so maybe 387 years later
Britanny and the Jumper Cables COULD exist? first sober SupaBowl I had, fucken
de-toxin', fucken JONES-in'! for booze and Britanny sang "walk this way"
with tallerico and my cuzzin George W. was president (Kins they's ashamed of?)

X, coming closer to destroy us! Between being cuzzins to George W. and Britanny,
the church of euthanasia is lookin' DAMN good"....

"more Zoomer radio toronto, robbie remembers: the sixties at six
(pm): "BIG TOWN BOY"-shirley
matthews. what a GREAT song by a Canadian soul artist! wikipedia record
geeks facts: released same tyme as "she loves you", december '63;
I know us Highlands left Manassas, virginny for clarkson NY on lil richard's
birthday (5 dec 64)....oh wait, I was still in Manassass when "she loves
you" came out but pretending it was 1863, since we lived so close to Bull
Run. CHUM-AM debuted those two 45s, Toronto station, i remember it. Shirley
had a few more hits, some rare Northern Soul, then left music, sadly now dead.
BUT the best google (and "big town boy" 45 was on atlantic!), a young
AWOL sailor name Rick came to toronto, fronted the Mynah Byrds which
had future buffalo springfield and steppenwolf members (Mynah Birds have wikipedia
record geek page!). Shirley Matthews told AWOL sailor and those around "this
is my son": ricky
james matthew (previous Johnson). After Mynah Birds got signed to Motown
(Neil Young on guitar!), Stevie Wonder said "call yourself,
Rick James, bitch!" (I just added that last part as a comedy routine).
SO altogether, everyone remembers Ricky James Mathews, but Shirley Mathews remains...Hopelessly
Obscure....but 45s on youtube! speaking of
Evie Sands has a new vinyl, follow her on twitter!, another "shoulda
been a contendor" but STILL making music! dang, the ghost of Solomon Gruberger
musta had me mention lady singers....when I start reviewing Dory Previn...as
Iggy says on "loose"...."well, look out"".....
