Sonntag 18 Aug 19. Funhouse by Stooges released that day in
1970 but I had Mad Painter practice for Rat
beach party saturday 31 aug 19, C-note, Hull Mass. Game
plan: do same set we did on WMFO two months ago
before hiatus. Ok, nuthin' TOO new here besides me naming every
Jon Lord lick that Alex Gitlin played on keyboards.
What is "new" was the inspiration for an Alex original
came from "Rain and Tears" by Aphrodite's Child
(the Greek Vanilla Fudge, we love them!) THIS song based
"composed for Bach's wedding 23 October 1694" (is it
too late to send a gift?). Aphrodite's Child ADMIT to being influenced
by "whiter shade of Procol" which, according to wikipedia
is some kinda Bach thing (how about Sebastian Bach in Skid Row?).
Roll Over Beethoven, unless you gonna act like Amadeus.....my
lack of music theory reads on "Pale" in wikipedia: "moderate
tyme C major and is characteristic by the bassline moving stepwise
downwards in a repeated pattern throughout. In classical music
this is known as a ground bass" Hey, I was educated in a
segregated four-room schoolhouse in Virginny, I dont know this
shit! To FINALLY tie up Mad Painter's "aint no use in hangin'
on", inspired by Aphrodite's
Child's "Rain and Tears". I dub this song "a
white shade of gitlin'. "and the grable had a beard"

Rhode Island recently BUT (and LIKE
them on Facebook, think picture is there): they posed on HP
Lovecraft's grave! (They're also big GG Allin fans but Highland/Moore
has been to the Allin graveyard Barrington,RI). Since I wasnt listening

as does my great-grandmother Highland and further research puts
them in Exeter RI where Schmel Herbie Hind has
both been AND in same WMFO building as these Katz. here's the Rathbun
line of descent; the immigrant went from "5000 holes in"
Blackburn, Lancashire to Roxbury Mass to Block Island. Subsequent
generations lived in Escoheag Hill area of Exeter RI. on facebook>ms-my.
R.I. Haunts History and Scenics-Siaran/ facebook. "they are
right off of Falls River Road, which is a dirt road off of Escoheag
road". Rathbun territory. To KENclude, on Block Island, "settler's
stone' carved within name of Lancashire John Rathbun; his descendants:
HP Lovecraft, me and mark farner. Dudes.....me gittin' stoned reading
HP Lovecraft and lisenin to "Into the Sun" off side foor
of Grand Funk Live (gatefold album, good for rolling man.....)...."it's

"Thor's Day 22 august 19,42 years after Afrika Korps/Gizmos
partied at Groupie Towers after Afrika Korps debut; what may NOT
be in BGN archives was Labour Day '77, me singing "Gloria"

me punching out that skinhead at Middle East onstage with Frank
Rowe HAS gone viral! (watch
it on youtube!) "Float like an Iron Buttefly, sting like
a Mcbee and I AM the greatest!". So lemme boast about the
rat Beach Party, saturday 31 aug 19. One of Dad's
founding fathers named Phelps (wikipedia entry!) landed at Hull

fathers, so....first I'm madly Painting everything a Deeper Shade

day of Frigga 23 aug 19. Bevis
show 0700 WMBR. 0800 he plays "aint that just like me"
by the Hollies recorded 4 april 63 at Abbey Road, when I's seven
years old jacksonville NC watchin' Beverly Hillbillies and listening
AND readin' "alley
Oop". Did a wee bit of history over morning private coffee
and it's a 1961 Coaster song, also done as b-side of Searchers "Needles
and Pins". my MAIN point of this 45 as I was "havin' a
lie down" at 0800 was: holy shit! this sounds like Muck
and the Mires! as USUAL, Bevis Frond, with his wit said
"Graham Nash was on this track and six years later he was singing
"sweet judy blue eyes" at Woodstock. Think of 'ow much
music changed after that....the Who...Hendrix, this woulda sounded
dated by then"....A man surely after my own heart! Tune in
