"Kenne Highland At Large turning into the Adverts! meaning i WILL mention
whatever in that masonic league of musicians, that's what the brotherhood/sisterhood/CISGENDER
(hey! i'm fucken politcally correct!) of musicians is aboot. So: Miguel
D'Amour hopelessly obscure STILL looking for roommate: 617-470-7422,
"dontcha wanna live with me" (I coulda met Jimmy Miller at Rat balcony
'86 but was trippin' on mushrooms, mannnnnnnn.......)....TURKISH GROUPIE NEWS:

Thus, he is rocknroll hall of Fame GOOD TASTE personified! He writes from Turkey

"in less than 24 hours, I have "discovered" the istanbul turkey
punk scene which is kinda like Columbus discovering the Taino; with Miguel
D'Amour as my portegei navigator, i shall claim them for Johanna the
insane of Spain! (if i remember right, ferdinand and isabella wuz cuzzins, so....)....but
let Kenne the H be Murray the K for REPTILIANS FROM ANDROMEDA. (facebook, already
LIKED by Blowfish!). lotsa press and records if you google; name from a 1966
Plan Nine-ish movie i gotta research (my favourite words; 'must research further").
Tolga Ozbey i have friended via jay Dobis, who, has now turnt
Kennethen Highland onto the Istanbul punk scene! It would figger, all them European
countries dig the Boston sound but this is Asia Minor! but no minor chords on
their album: Dialogue for Monkeys, profsny records (facebook)
czech republic. Rock and roll music to the world! (ten years after lp i got
for subscribing to creem in '72!). so before i do a more in depth Vulcher
write up, here's a quick album review. though vocally admitting
to Nico/Nina Hagen/and my cuzzin courtney love, which i DO hear, i also hear
the Waitresses vocally and Human Switchboard keyboards; even some Destroy all
Monsters and if james williamson and james recca LIKE your band; fuck, Jesus
loves the Stooges and Reptilians! They want to tour America, first, will be
in belgium valentine's day til 19th (Belgian scene looks cool too....drink a
stella artois as you write the belgian groupie News! ok enuff foolishness; in
'70s everybody went to france; fuck that! as my mother's ames brother record
said "Istanbul was Constantinople".....let's see a cross-ocean trade-off
in band tours dudes! and stop in bari, italia also!".

"saturday 27 jan 18 me and Patti Smith's cuzzin Miss Lyn used some movie
passes kendall thee-ate-er saw the shape of water.
maybe we can do the ole siskel-ebert two view thang, so here's my nutshell:
human gurl/alien dude. mork and mindy/beauty and beast/king kong etc. still
this creature from the south american lagoon has a new twist on a familiar tale/tail.
bad guys are ALWAYS "war pigs of the power";cf. Gort, day earth stood
still etc. "come with me' says the "merman i shall turn to be"
(not 1983, but 1962 bald-a-more; GREAT 1962 clothes/cars et!) so that was stolen
from mermaid SPLASH. if solomon gruberger were alive he'd be saying "I
know who they're ripping off!" and "I have a lawyer too!" ok
since my view is jabberwoky, here's Miss Lyn, in WonderMENT as opposed to wonderland".....
I loved the Shape of Water cause it was shot in very noir like color. And there
was a lot of dark humor in there too. The main charachter is mute and uses sign
language and signs "Fuck You" very slowly to the mean guy who's fingers
were bitten off by the creature. The creature also bites off a cat's head. But
he's not bad really, he's sweet. The 2018 part different from all the old previous
stories is that she has sex with the creature...his pitou is under a flap "down

day of Wodin 31 jan 18, and my 2% scandinavian DNA got together for Ken/Mike
and Matt to jam for the sally obriens 11 pm friday 16 feb 18
gig with jittery jack and stop calling me
frank. as a trio, Grand Funk Railroad and Blue Cheer covers were jammed
on, but since "My head's in '73", Dolls/Stooges/Kiss kovers were jammed
on and it may as well have been O. rex minus the Gruberger brothers! Since Ken
Kaiser KOULDNT do this gig, he missed me and MJ Quirk tearing apart 50 years
of vincebus eruptum for riffs on "summertime blues" and "rock
me baby". "rock and roll soul" GFR done PROPERLY, I must say
Mike sang the Brewer parts and i sang the higher farner parts coz he IS my distant
cuzzin. MJ Quirk and i split vocals on Kiss's "cold gin" and "strutter"
i've been doing since (return to) forever. check the Club Linehan-a-go-go facebook
page, MJ Quirk bookin' up a storm;gigs with THREE different drummers! (hey
if matt Burns wants to see ian Hunter do i BLAME him?) so MJ Quirk birthday
gig is 8 pm saturday 10 feb 18 cantab, drummer is, from Geezer's garage
and Quincy Mass.: Al Hendry! that's the henderson tartan lads, I think the only
Irish lads are Quirk/Quinn and my Mcbee self. Celtic rockers letting out the
precursor of the Rebel yell! (larn yer fookin' 'is-tree, ya idjit!)....and i
will (Jerry) shirley keep you posted on more gigs! Music DOES soothe the savage

"Thor's Day, 1 feb 18, besides saying "lapin, lapin, lapin"
in the morn, I decided 'twas tyme to renew my senior citizen (actually not a
SENOR citizen, more of a MONSIEUR citizen) membership to french cultural center
($40!). website and facebook
has some interesting events coming up, so if i'm not rockin' and rollin' or
playing Grand Funk covers, let me tell you Pierre le Coutre, our Flensburg Groupie
News correspondent says "wish i was there". coz he was! kinda, in
europa at least. May '68 revisited....did I heard "itchykoo park"
on Rochester NY AM and "pictures of matchstick men"? "3 may 68,
parisian students took to the street in protests acrost France"....I was
still waitin' for LBJ to build a wall to keep the Quebecois out of Brockport
ny! (MERELY jesting since Ma's grandmere was a Veilleux, though she downplayed
it all the tyme)....MARC RIBOUD, as mort as Marc Giroux, took some photos of
the "time" and Harvard and Northeastern folks gave an interesting
talk as I sat in a leather chair with Johnny Halliday on cover of a magazine
(he also mort). Place was wicked crowded so i didnt stay til end but looking
forward to more events de la Franoise! (Hardy! how 'bout them ye ye girls?!?!)...."......
