Blowfish did go to see The Whore Moans and here's his take on the evening:
It was a Wednesday night out to see the Whore Moans. Joanie Lindstrom has been talking them up and they lived up to the promise. There was just enough people to populate the floor. The Whore Moans are full of energy and have personality to spare. Musically they don't go down the worn path of chunking out two note power chords. They do things a little differently and it makes for a more interesting set. They love to yell and by yell I mean at top volume with plenty of gusto. They seem like they could be a live band only and the recorded work would fall short but it's not the case. Their latest CD is full of excellent work and I'll be reviewing that soon. They are worth more attention all around.
I went to the "Drop Ya Mic and pick up Yer Paintbrush" show at the
Honan Allston Branch of the BPL and organized by photographer Nicole Tammaro...
Some of the work was good and some of it really sucked big time and some was
as trite as hell and oh-so-typically-"punk"-and-was-Hello!-done-years-ago-before-you-did-it-in-2009!!
too. So I brought ya pics of the stuff I thought was either technically very
good and my fave piece which was "A Dog Named Flecos" by Billy Brown of The
Deadly SIns...I love the materials and the execution of it, they work together
really well without being patronizing or posed. .....
Then Saturday and Sunday was Somerville Open Studios, very successful for me so I am psyched and I present you with a photo of my wall of work..... So I'm tired as hell and ain't gonna write anymore...except for two things" to regurgitate some info from last week....

And to share some new Jan Crocker videos with you….
Jan says" In the Spring of 1980 Mission of Burma played The Underground Club with The Cure. Both bands played high energy sets that night in the tiny club holding about a 100+ people. Check out a recent edit from that show of Mission of Burma's "Head Over Head."
In the Archive Portal you can take a look at a ruckus live version
from 999. This was taken from the Movie Urgh! a Music War filmed
at the Lyceum Ballroom, London England, 1980
