"Sonntag Morgen" 1 nov 20. Warshin' mah drawers, coffee,
channel surfin'....Coyote Ugly! sure why
not....4 August 2000....I drunkenly remember maybe playing Abbey
Lounge with Kenne Highland Clan...so I
missed this movie. 20 years later with Lockdown laundry (HOLY SHIT!
a new song!)….well...actually "Jersey Girl", a songwriter
with stage fright (I have ONE thing in common with her) ends up
slinging drinks at a New Jack City bar and dancing up top the bar.
for THAT, I even semi recommend the
soundtrack album! "Unbelievable"-EMF (check Tom Jones
version!), "The Power" by SNAP! and lastly, "Pour
Some Sugar On Me" (DEF LEPPARD; hair-metal now becomes male
pattern baldness metal!). This is party all the time Clinton-era,
pre-9/11, pre-Trump, pre-Co-vid, pre-mask New Jack City....90s nostalgia
Lazy Sunday, afternoon day of dead 1 Nov 20 coz that's when Somerville
Grooves opens! (Mark Lindsay sang: "In my community".
Besides purchasing 13 items, Triple Thick Mitch walked in.
Me, him and owner; it was like a sober record convention at the
Abbey Lounge! I'd unearthed a reggae "dee jay" cassette
where dj's "RAP" over "riddims" (how 'bout dat
mon?) and Mitch told a tale of going to Jamaica, mon and there were
ALL these pressing plants...lettuce
remind you that Miss Lyn DID
go to the pressing plant in Maryland to pick up Ken Kaiser's "Jersey
Girl" 45 "Ich Liebe du laurie". Mitch was FONDLING
some albums (it's soooooooo sensual!) and I nearly got my groove
back sans Stella: "look! there's the first Bee Gees album
five dollars!"...No Circle Jerks records were bought; and there
a Playboy records label! Reed (Lapin of In your ear) between
that copy of Grandmaster Flash doin "white lines"!".....

Sunday 1 Nov 20, will never be the same": watching Rick
Steves travelling to North Wales. dad's ancestors made
their Brexit from Wales to Philly during the William Penn and the
Quakers daze. I can tell you for a fact (Ono!) that my favourite
Beatles John and George had welsh ancestry why d'yer think George
had all those melancholy badfinger-y toons?). My Welsh ancestors
seem to be from central and southern wales BUT "in the good
and the bad books that I have read", Lennon's mum ("JULIA"!
and ALL of what I say is meaningless!), her mum was from North Wales,
so good to see the strict Baptist areas John's aunt Mimi descended
from (almost like me Puritanical mum: "guitar's alright but
you aint made no money from it!"). (well $1000 from Sweden's
Sator covering Gizmos "Kiss of a Rat"....)….SO with
not that much surprise, "and right acrost the border is Liverpool!"
(or 50 miles or sutch; like Brockport Ny and Canada). SO the HIGHLIGHT
of left-over Portugalia supper was having a Beatle tour guide explain
the landmarks in "Penny Lane"! been waitin'
since like 1967 to see that...or as ma says "Penny Lane"
was popular right around the tyme your father died Kenneth""......

Pfister- bass, vocals (cuzzin? spouse? between both ex-wives

the band that Tyme Forgot on drums. ok, notes in Highland-glyphics.
'is that a synth"? a bit of "dream Weaver"by a Spooky
Tooth ex. very '70s commercial, late '70s AM hit circa 1978 marine
barracks, Fort Meade Maryland guardhouse radio. pre- Pat Benatar/Joan
Jett, so no raspy vocals, very smooth. I wrote Juice Newton BUT
then decided Christine Perfect on HER Fleetwood Mac toons ("I
first heard "over my head" and thought it was fanny!"-Solomon
Gruberger circa 1976, letter to some Krazee gizmo marine). Even
more: Jennifer Warnes! and only I and I, mun, remember JENNIFER
doing "easy to be hard" (NOT used in a Viagra commercial....YET!!!!!).
So, tho, I don't know jacksheiss about this lady, she has some good
players, it's got a good beat, I give it an 87 (ALWAYS leave room

Friday on my mind 5 Nov 20. sadly Ken Hensley of Uriah Heep
(keyboards) died months after lee kerslake (drums)
died; Mick Box is all that remains of the "classic" lineup.
my Heep-dom started with a pre-Angry Samoans Metal Mike
Saunders raving about 1971 metal in Flash magazine,
to wit: Look at Yourself. Carmine Appice, my Vanilla Fudge facebook
friend says Ken was big Fudge fan coz of the Hammond B-3 organ.
Mick Box, guitar, also admits to listening to a lot of Fudge back
when Heep was formed (ditto for deep Purple; reasons I am in mad
painter!). Saturday 7 Nov doing more recording Lowell Street (Kenne
Highland's Airforce) so THAT is the news and check out my
youtube channel also! See y'all next week, at large!"...
