Geezer's garage night friday 18 may 18. Paddy O
started on piano, lots of hank williams and johnny cash plus doors "crystal
ship" played superbly! Joey Fingers bassist went into
an impromptu "whippin' post" that was awesome! veterans of Quincy
blues jam that i usedta read about in the boston blues newsletter at johnny
d's somerville. MJ Quirk got my guitar fixed at Play Music,
page) and sounds pissa, crankin' etc. a quartet minus John Keegan's
sax that evening but MJ Quirk looking quite slim in a first
black sabbath album shirt, Joe Quinn and Kevin Linehan
always CCR-tight as rhythm section. Kevin's 16 year old son got up for "tallahassie
lassie" and considering solomon gruberger gave me one drum lesson sunday
3 june 73 before O. Rex played "louie louie"; Aidan Linehan got up
UNREHEARSED and wailed on drums! other father son dynasties: Bonhams/Starkeys....now
Linehans! Lindsey and Masa always good like Page/Plant; a whitesnake cover with
projected vocals but ending with a bonnie raitt cover "love me like a man"
maybe, I heard echoes of Janis and "turtle blues". all meant as compliment.
we had to do the Irish goodbye (split and say nothing) but my evil Viking twin
Chip Langille posted a video of "purple haze" with
Masa on lead, Yukiko on RHYTHM and Satoru
on bass! switching instruments is fun and they all are quite adept
and let's NOT forget Al Hendry on drums in almost every set!
Next month, June maybe: quincy porchfest by day, granite street cafe at night
and night before jeannie johnston in JP! gittin' tired thinkin' about it

it was a weekend of movies! sat 19 may 18 brattle theater,
Klaus Kinski in The Great Silence,
7 dec 68 release in italy; i was buyin' the beatles white album, WT Grants brockport
ny 'round then! Brattle pass c/o Miss Lyn; that's my annual celery fer writin'
this rubbish! Look at Stewie Kaiser's celery! Besides looking a LOT like Clint
Eastwood movies, "silent" vigilante etc., Utah in a blizzard is actually
the italian dolomites! thought those mountains looked like the alps.
Gee Julie thought there was a lot of "gratutious violence"
but that is the nature of the beast and too bad she wasn't about brattle's Mario
Bava horror fest about 15 year back. if you want to binge out in a moon age
daydream on spaghetti westerns or Klaus Kinksi, youtube IS your outlet! maybe
Miss Lyn do a siskil to my ebert, a few words: (As these
westerns go the acting was pretty bad and of course the actors were dubbed in
Italian. There certainlny was a LOT of ruthless killing...LOTS of gunfire...but
the Ennio Moricone sound track is what I was interested in
and very surpised by. I thought it would be twangy guitar instead it was heavy
on the flute and some light breezy orchestration which was a very bizarre juxtapose
to trhe violent on the screen. - ed.)

sunday 20 may 18, in mood for foreign films, and down the
fenway, RAAZI (facebook
page!) 20018 Bollywood thriller film/crime film. All kindsa spy versus spy
only the lady is Joan Bond! "an indian spy marries a paki during indo-paki
war of 1971". In my high school, up the college, I was friends with a kid
from "over there"; age 15, lissenin' to FUNHOUSE but "bangla
desh", Beatle George was in charts and my friend said "that's about
my country". Besides the Beatles and the maharishi, as far as my exposure
to EASTERN Indians, there was a family, up the college (SUNY Brockport, Bob
Richert, Gulcher, '70!) whom XMAS '69 bought me "time machine" b/w
"high on a horse"-grand funk railroad! But back to movie; so it's
based on fact; i like that. arranged marriage of Indian CIA-type agent daughter
to paki general's son. They train her how to shoot gun, self-defense, morse
code; "when i say im in love you best believe im in love L-U-V!" (especially
when she flips guys over her shoulder!). a lot of double-cross, she gets found
out but falls in love with her husband as is/was; and he lissens to jazz VINYL!
but not credited....rest of soundtrack is awesome too and you CAN binge out
on Bollywood on youtube.....this movie also playing up apple cinema in fresh
pond, but fenway was "closer to home".....and you thought i couldnt
mix bollywood with grand funk railroad! (on the cover of Rock On
#5, early '73, Alan Baase, RIP, BUT Ken Kaiser take note: he's hangin' with
the gruberger brothers AND their kabllah uncle Phillip berg, ALSO on youtube!"....

day of Wodin 23 may 18. milesonthembta.com
for us bus geeks; 64 RIPTA to newport, then 60 RIPTA to providence; the blog
and better pictures than I on that site. Been a couple years I was to the haunted
Biltmore hotel; no longer part of hampton points group BUT let's say Monday/Tuesday/even
fourth of July day of Wodin: $159!!!! lettuce sea.....My points at McCormick
and Schmick's restaurant still go though; because Miss Lyn used to have fetucinni
alfredo with blowfish at early '80s BGN meetings i think i got chicken Alfredo
maybe. other than commuter rail, Boston, travellin' dunn, back here playin'
with dead people BUT just to tie this in with Coast to Coast AM; where my great-grandmother
Highland's colonial kin is buried, the RIPTA buses go by them cemeteries SO
obviously my phone was a ouiji board contactin' them spirits....a-yep! puttin'
the SWOMP in Swamp yankee!".....(See Kenne's Travelogue photos after the column)
