Saturday 29 May 21. Mad Painter has a song "Friend
in France" (about the bloke replaced Steve "Win weird"
in Spencer Davies Group). I have deu! Dom Genot posted
"reincarnation" live at Bob Colby's 60th TT the
Bear's 12 Aug 12 (my finalist gig there). Mon ami noveau,
Francis Lornet; "c'est "Slip inside this
house", non?" I took one month of French at the French
Cultural Center and even I know they talkin' 'bout my Thirteenth
Floor Elevators 8-track (Bloomington, Indiana '75!). These two record
collectors j'adour Monsieur Kenne (descendant of Hugh Capet, le
roi de Franks!) they even mention the Afrika Korps! stillinrock.com
Everyday A Sunday: Afrika Korps. Read it Anglais un Francaise! "sounds
like the ramones'. Non merde monsieur Sherlock! "J janet"
and the Hopelessly Obscure "I laffed out Loud" mentioned;
Ken Kaiser will be happy HE has a "Friend in France"...glad
folks around the world lissenin'! (there's a 1970s Ken highland
in every country!)"..

"Sunday 30 May 21 perhaps or was it memorial Day? Miss Lyn
of Metal (2019) on Amazon, and Gee Julie
and I watched it. It's about a punk drummer going deaf
but things that caught my eye: his deafness happens at a gig in
Missouri; all I can think of Rerun records, Jason Rerun and the
Gruberger Brothers album Greetings
From Reading, Pennsylvania (on youtube!). (liner notes by me!)
Drummer and girl is a two-piece noise/core band and they tour in
their r.v.; his final words before deafness; "but we gotta
play Dayton!" cue up the Gizmos "disaster in Dayton";
home of Toxic Reasons! Also, cool t-shirts worn like Rudimentary
Peni, Gizm, et al. I also like where he teaches the deaf kids at
deaf school how to drum on buckets etc. Altogether, a GREAT movie
and lovin' the "punk" imagery. An even sadder Sid and
Nancy movie kinda; death or deaf? pick one".....

day of Wodin 2 June 21. There is NO better way to celebrate Lydia
Lunch's birthday than an open mike at the grande re-opening
of the Jungle! I walked in and was asked to perform and
thank God I HAD told Captain Easychord. MegaMassTV.com
put on this event and facebook is ; Mega Mass. We were mixed with
hip-hop acts and I appreciate the diversity! Black Prince
went on first then Captain Easychord did "Searchin
for the sun" and the singalong "My Blind Shrink".
After drinking a Jamaican ginger beer, Captain was on keys (was
I Tenille? NO! Gee Julie filmed all on captin's
phone!) and we did my reggae "hit' "Insult to Injury"
(Stolen from A Sir Lord Comic toast). The "diverse" crowd
appreciated me talkin' 'bout gittin' high with Toots Maytal and,
in the vein of Iggy/Manzarek '74 and/or "Suicide" I also
launched into Sonics "Psych-O" plus "96 tears' (four
and half minutes, circulating facebook). Two mixed rappers followed
us who were slammin'! "In honour of the last act we're sampling
VINYL"; dang I'm an influence. Schmel Herbie Hind
thought I added some Baptist gospel preachin' to the perfmance….again
YOU decide! Being onstage after 15 months...dudes, I was fuckin'
WIRED!!! Open mike, Jungle, every Wednesday! I stopped there on
day of Thor, got some wings (NOT Slade's quality, but what is?)
and ALL kindsa options coming up and I walk a couple-three blocks.
LOVE the Jungle and more news as it happens! ("what's happening?"-Murray
the K; "you're what's happening!"- Ringo)."....

What a day was George Noory/Ken Kaiser/Pierre le Coutre's
birthday! 0100-0500, disclosures on Coast to Coast Am on
government UFO coverups (I did review a UFO album for WIUS Tipsheet
about '74). Then Joe Quinn of Club Linehan-a-go-go texts and posts
on my facebook wall, MICHAEL DES BARRES announcing
"I'll show them who's Mod" on Sirius radio
off my Be More Flamboyant cd. HONOURED! He was a mod in To Sir With
Love and Silverhead were certainly FLAMBOYANT! Took a listen to
some 1973 live Silverhead AND it's SO Thundertrain! (formed 1 August
74). lastly the 91 bus took me to Union Square and hey! FREE! EARLY!
shows at the Jungle! (like them on Facebook). Wednesday was hip-hop,
Thor's day was ONCE, reincarnated and Friday I thought I was at
passim's for alt-folk (could NOT talk in Irish whispher!). So I
liked the two acts: Woundikin (like
him on facebook): "Ray LaMontagne to The tallest Man on
Earth" said one review. don't mean shit to me but do yer homework
on these artists! And I REALLY dug this cat from Ralph Waldo. Indy-folk
(did I say that?) like Ralph Waldo on facebook. I liked song and
title "Premonition" whilst sippin' Jamaican ginger beer,
mon! More scrawled notes; "emotional falsetto like Dino Valent
e" (somehow in '70s I heard his album on Epic?) and my favourite:
"bloke looks like Van Morrison during his Astral Weeks period"
(semi-long hair but it was the red goatee that sailed me "into
the mystic"!). Lastly, mad painter practice,
all the news is on Facebook page including
go-fund-me for the cd AND: Saturday 31 July 21, 7 pm,
MAD PAINTER at Jungle! with Kaleosscope. ok back to Black
Gospel radio 365 and like Stevie Wonder said about clubs re-opening
(LIE!): "Heaven Help us All"!".....
