freitag ides of september 2023. captain easychord presents; Alex Gitlin's 53rd and third birthday party Square Root. Larry newman opened with some excellent roots-rock originals with Shel Pierce of the Runes blowing some excellent harp! Captain easychord's brit-op is So goddam catchy that gee Julie and i were GLADLY dancin' to "My Blind Shrink".

Mad painter was stoppin' on a dime with the Heep Purple keyboards of birthday boy Alex Gitlin; "lookin' at you' was members of the Runes/the lines and Stormbringer!

lastly, Gee Julie did some videos of kenne Highland's Air force (check it out here!!)and, as usual, i sang like iggy channeling Jim dandy magrum at a baptist revival, John Keegan blowing Funhouse-style sax, double keyboards of captain easychord and alex gitlin, larry newman/Al hendry. ALSO cant forget (Sharon) needlez and (Julie) Pinz singin' with mad painter and shakin' those tambourines like a gospel revival during mad painter set.

Small group, but ALL in Square Root loved it; I'd rather play in front of 13 people that GET it instead of a buncha bon vivants ANY modda-fockin day of the week. If you missed it, that is YOUR problem; I'm "part of the solutuion!" james kicked out, mofos!"....

Sonntag 17 sept 2023. Jungle five pm: Leon Rich! solo acoustic but wanting to add a drummer wid brushes ala J. Richman and D. Sharp. Leon's lyrics are as bizarre as John Richman wid da acid-dazed Syd barrett. Leon posed like Alfred hitchcock and also covered Byrds/Dylan "my back pages" and Beatles "she loves you'.

Rich as Hitchcock

Followed by Renegade Cartel whom I enoyed. there was a grunge influence that delved back to the 1971 hard rock of Dust and cactus. This power trio did a blues/ballad about deceased grunge heroes that echoed Grand Funk's "Heartbreaker" with bassist singing somwhere between Mark Farner and geddy Lee from Rush (good high range!). Drummer had his Zildjian symbols pointed down in a most metal way and guitarist had ZoFo stencilled on his amp. You can "like" Renegade Cartel on facebook, "loud in your face ROCK!"...the kind I like since i Am loud and in yer face, iggy-style"
