"Freitag 6 October 2023. mad Painter practice
sans Gee Julie, who be illin' while I chillin' wid Alex Gitlin,
Schmel Herbie Hind, Al Hendry AND, fresh from playing Honk: Sharon
Crumrine. By the loo of the upstairs of the regent Thee-ate-er,
I heard the Cowsills, whom were da ballz singin' Hollies "Bus
Stop" (dose harmonies!) and Susan Cowsill on "To Sir
wid Love"....Saint Justina WILL forgive me for not attending
her tribute thang! Sharon Crumrine DID admit to her Partridge
Family fandom and "I wanted to be Susan Dey". Deep People
Fact from Mr. Crepe: My great-grandmother Highland and Susan Dey
BOTH descend from Bigod Eggleston, buried in Palisado cemen-Terry
in Connecticut where both Laura Soul Cake Sativa hails from AND
my great-great-grandmother Highland's Eno ancestor is buried!
I AM overdue for another visit to Hartford, a town founded by
mine and GG Allin's ancestors! (Justine Coalt too! and THAT is
Abrahan Covault's original Glastonbury Ct. spelling!)"......

OktoberFest! and we ran into Sharon Crumline and a couple of her friends coming

east Side gigs with 145 (they use "to be The Most!) and Kenne

Monntag 9 Oct 2023. Mad Painter 630 pm set at Jungle.
I go "Mad Painter in da house" and Astro (bar/sound)
was PSYCHED! "I walked in and you were wearing the orange
Moses robe...did you have the hat?" Mad painter got a GREAT
reaction from the other two bands, full sextet of me and Al hendry
rhythm section; Schmel herbie Hind and I lockin' in like '60s
Jorma and jack, Alex Gitlin LORD (Jon) of da keyboards and Needlez
(Sharon Crumrine) and Pinz (Gee Julie) on angelic vocals. Floricane
followed and Gee Julie said "sounds like a darker
Amanda palmer" (Julie's mother DOES have Dresden ancestry
and i'm her KEN DOLL). "Fiction inspired post hardcore"
says their bandcamp thang. Voided Shape closed
the night "cream-o hardcore", "some Mission of
Burma guitar", "slam dancin' too"...an O'brien's
bill, but they loved mad painter. Voided Shape bassist let me
use his rig (drummer borrowed Al hendry kit) and for soundcheck
I riffed on "if you want me to stay". "How's it
sound" ask Voided Shape. Me; "I sound like Larry Graham'
(and I;m a Cracker!). A fun night but age 67 I was one tired Alta
kaka! lastly, wade's BBQ be openin' up acrost the way, so I got
me a new eatin' place!".....

Earlier this week Emily Grogan of Inky Spoon
had posted about RIP of Mark Davis, soundman
and Ducky Carlisle of 145. Monntag Artie "Button"
Freedman had showed up at mad Painter at the Jungle and
asked "have you heard about Mark Davis". So I guess
it's true and let's start with the Alpha; Til Tuesday 9 Sept 80
Ken kaiser and I played with BIG WORLD at the Underground, sound
by Michael Whittaker (RIP). End of night, wasted, mark was offering
us a gig at Uncle Sam's in nantasket. I always busted his ballz
throughout the years: "where's my gig at nantasket?".
Michael Wheddle (RIP) DID get me many gigs where my dad's Mary
and John ancestors landed in 1630. HAS Mark gone to rocknroll
heaven? Hell YEAH! According to the Gospel of Saint Mach, for
all the sound he did for Mitch Cerulli, at the
door to Heaven's Gate musta been happy to let him in
Eric Law, Mark Davis, Mark Francis and Brother Cleve -
