blue cheer: who sampled, leads into "sun cycle",
second blue cheer on danish rap malk de koijn's "snegzilla".
loved hearing my cousin Paul Whaley on drums but also heard
some good funk and that is "reciprocal thords' by bergendy
(1976). and whom were Bergendy/ (hip-hop samples is how jeremy cargill
of ugly things discovered the Gizmos!). 1976 i was
ramones-mad, i was, over the top, missing out on Hungarian
jazz coZ I was guarding the NSA and there was an iron curtain. But Bergendy
is good shit! though it's ca. 1970 horn-rock but again, Commie time warp...lots
of books on Hungarian jazz scene; since you couldnt sing revolutionary lyrics,
instrumental jazz was ok. the Danish rappers sampled the horns but there's a
good drum solo on this ten minute toon: heavy on the cymbals vs. "Moby
Dick" and Bonham beating on toms...I'm gonna search out more Bergendy on
youtube; they're even on e-bay and let's see the price of a Hungarian jazz album
vs Gizmos/O. Rex!".....

sat 28 october 17, being on a "Blue cheer tear" and having access
to ancestry.com, question of temperature; is i kin to blue cheer's drummer paul
whaley. answer: yes! www. barnum. org . nti 14325. notes for theophilus whaley.
his mother was a cromwell and he was part of King Charles regicide, born of
wealthy family. after the restoration moved to rappahanock county virginia where
it seems i was almost born and dad has roots. one son going from virginia to
ohio to iowa to blue cheer begats their drummer, born san fran area. Whaley
decided he'd rather lissen to greg allens fringe religion,
so he sailed to rhode island, settling at head of pettaquamscutt pond in naragansett.
hidden identify etc. fascinating reading. daughter theodosia whaley married
doctor robert spencer, notable descendants being my great-grandmother Highland
and lucille ball. if you're a real greg allen fan, you'll drive down frenchtown
road to hopkins hill road west greenwich ri to see theophilus whaley grave (north
of my vampire cuzzin mercy brown in exeter). Spencers lived
on kenyon road, east greenwich ri i beleieve. SO, 0700, me, Paul whaley
of blue cheer and lil ricky of dino desi and billy
should gather at ken kasier's door for a Vincebus erutpum version
of "i'm a fool" complete with facebook friend leigh stephens
whammy bar feedback...at the same age i started listening to blue cheer i also
thought Luci arnaz was "hot"....dang, if i married her we'd be playin'
"deliverance' Blue Cheer style!"..

there's a youtube of the Gizmos
doing pere ubu's "final solution" onstage in cleveland, day of
the dead 2014;that "world tour" i didnt even know who won the world
series! This tyme, WEEI 850 AM, right before i turn to WRKO 640 AM for beyond
belief and coast to coast ("tonight! lee harvey
oswald's girlfriend!")....ok i usually crash 2000 hours but wake
up at night had world series on til midnight, so...Houston won! what CAN i write
about houston? (dunkin' donuts: "him like kerouac"! toilet paper in
my typewrite as i talk shit! hahaha!). So Houston, home of ZZ fucken Beard!
(as solomon gruberger pointed out, drummer frank beard was the only ZZ member
sans beard!). Maybe lot of ZZ and "arrested while drivin' while blind"
happened last night; how about my 1982 26 (13 twice!) birthday party and Solomon
Kaiser's great-nephew and me gittin' stoned lisenin' to Tejas on 8-track?
later that year i stole the intro from "99th floor" (moving sideburns;
Billy didnt have a ZZ beard then) for "she's my best bette" (covered
by dark carnival). JAILBAIT JANET's brother turnt me onto Tres
Gizmos and after the "foxy lady" riff in "gimme back my foreskin"
it goes E chord 'coz i need one bad"...which = from "waitin' for the
bus": "got my brown paper bag"...."Joe Blues" b-side
to "i wanna hold your hand" (movin' sidewalks record) gulcher recording
artists 12 cent donkey say the 'joe blues' vocals "sound like Kenne Highland".
Besides Solomon kaiser's grave; Hello World! my grandaddy McBee's RU-198
Sacon DNA swabbed by MY cheeks is in Houston at family tree DNA; the
Kenz tie to Houston and God bless 'em for winnin' the series coz otherwise
that town got "rock you like a hurricane"!(a 1983 drunk in Deli Haus
KH fave on jukebo.....SCORPIOS!!!!!DUDE!!!! WACKEN!!!!".....
