sunday 20 jan 19. jay allen still had his messaround
and everyone was great, but, to me highlights were Tony
Kacynski (Figures on a Beach) covering "I am waiting"
off the UK pressing of Stones Aftermath AND the Baabes
doin' Donovan's "hey Gyp" eric burdon style. Baabes singer
reminded me of a 1982 Ken Highland singing with Hopelessly Obscure
at Streets or Cantones; he not only "moves like Jagger",
he has james Brown fancy footwork like I did at that age! (probbly
before I broke my foot). A great shouter too; electric guitar and
raw vocal also sounded like me thursday 18 march 76, bloomington
indiana doing the Rockabilly Yobs record. Great stuff! thank you
Tony Kacynski for ride to tavern at end
of world; about ten folks watching Patriots game, Natalie
Flanagan did a couple songs but I passed on being half-time
entertainement since I DO thrive on PEOPLE! (so did Jim Jones! read
his bio in true crime section third floor harvard Coop!). Natalie
and I reminisced how long we known each other and she talked about
allston in the '80s, like MOLLY'S which became the Kells; they had
wet t-shirt contests back then! I told her the Cage (?) was the
downstairs club; had a gig with Dave Bass and the Grovellors but
it got cancelled (though we did a Stanton Park 45, so studio project?)
I damn sure DID miss out on this wet t-shirt contest!

Freitag 25 jan 19. desecrated hollows. studio 234 cambridge mass.
eric zinman and eliot cardinaux
cdr release. They trade off on piano, poetry and drums. when i played
lily pad with Grex and FABLE GRAZER, Eric was the drummer, though
he is equally adept at piano and recites poetry in a fiery Ferlinghetti
kinda way. Cardinaux is also awesome, impressing
me with his Monk-style playing; after a jam after the two sets, Rob
chalfen, club 186, DID inform me he WAS playing Monk's "Round Midnight"
and then we discussed rare jazz records like two guys on the outskirts
of town reciting burned books in Farenheit 451. A good "neo-beat"
"Hey Beat Mon" evening augmented by supper at Mu Queca! (viva Brasil!
