"freitag 6 jan 2023 0730 or so (I LOVE doing Dragnet dates
and tyme!). Bevis Frond played "My sunday
feeling" off Jethro Tull's This Was, their first
and my favourite album that I bought "Early 1970". ALWAYS
wondered how to play this I-IV-V and it's in G! Now that computers
been invented, it's about a Sunday morn hangover! (27 years, Jim/janis
lifetymes of them)...who knows? Kenne Highland Air Force COULD
cover it, that's our sound crossed with the Stooges. last but
not least, above cantone;s '78, Michael "Bix"
Beiderbeck apartment, J. Angell and
i WERE discussing the merits of Mick Abrahams (SO un-punk in that
day of Johnny ramone)....and THAT was the highlight of mein freitag!"...
RIP Trick wallace. met him in salem at Vic (Morrow)
Stock when he was with the Swallows 1998 (BETTER than 1698; we'd
be hangin' from the "gallow's Pole"!). A great guy;
irish wit re being in Robin lane's Chartbusters "I have the
radcliffe chair'. Two sober jamming memories; tavern at the end
of your career we did "the man upstairs" (was that him
or Asa?) and Natalie Flanagan and he were busking in copley square
the once, so we jammed on velvets "Here she comes now"....SO,
givin' the irishman with the Scottish clan name a proper wake
(like "Rocco") he is currently jamming with sixty per
cent of the Velvet Underground whilst the rest of us are in Purgatory!
to quote Ozzy "Bog blast all of you!

"saturnalia 7 jan 2023, 1100 or so. blastin' Hillbilly
at harvard at work, "workin in a coal mine" and
caught JR Cash doin "it aint me babe".
ok, GIZstory of song. Shirley, Lydia Lunch and i heard the Turtles
version on WBBF-AM fall '65 but original release was on Another
Side of Bob Dylan, an album i have not YET owned!
This came out between Hard day's night and Beatles
'65 BUT, same 1964 release off JR Cash Orange Blossom Special
album (havent YET bought that neither!) is the 45 of JR Cash covering
"it aint me babe". "Thoughts" (Vanilla Fudge
b-side): Cash WINS for his griity pre-Nick Cave Amerikana, First
vocal as THE best version (sorry Zimmerman, Volman and kaplan....)...AND
who COULDNT love a man in Black? covering depeche Mode "personal
jesus" and/or "Hurt".....why didnt JR Cash wear black
and do Cure covers in his Nick Cave voice? (reincarnation happens
every 200 years, Coasties, so maybe, "In the year 2525....if
"Deke Leonard and man are still alive"......

"day of Wodin 11 jan 2023. Miss Lyn told me Jeff Beck
ist tort! So some memories going back to 1965..."Heart
full of soul" on these lil transistor radios my grandmother
and seventh cuzzin got us from Detroit; I heard that intro and Ida
May: bought the 45 WITH pictures sleeve 15 cent september '72 from
some SUNY Brockport kids AND ida Bee: Afrika Korps covered it on
Music to Kill By and live at cantone's (both on Gulcher). I was
wasted at Pizza pad after the rat in '80s and WBCN played "Goin
Down" and Jeff blew my drunken mind with the whammy bar, drving
me to incessantly cover it in numerous combos. Lastly, my Facebook
friend Carmine Appice (VANILLA FUDGE!) posted a photo of beck (tort)
and Bogert (tort und mein fruend von facebook); loved that album,
covered "superstition" muchly and Carmine, like Saint
mach bell (buy his book!) is Last man standing in beck bogert and
appice. wikipedia says Beck surname means "brook" or "stream'
from Old Norse bekkr, thus Beck and Keith Relf are currently having
a rave-Up in valhalla!"......
