Freitag 3 Nov 2023. Mad painter practice. in
attendance: Alex Giltin-keyboards/vocals; Schmel
herbie Hind- guitar; me-bass, Al hendry-drums
and vocals was Gee Julie and Sharon Crumrine.
Alex decided to "expand" the sound and have him and
Sharon on DOUBLE keyboards (and I was JUST watchin' the Commodores
on youtube doin' the 1974 "Machine Gun"!) AND Sharon
on flute. 2019 buskin' at Leon's Rich's Outpost thursday night
I did a jam of me doin' John Lee Hooker's "My first wfe left
me' (stay on the I!) with captain easychord on upright piano and
sharon on Blues Project flute. With mad painter, her flute skills
favour Bloodrock channeling Jethro Tull on their fourth album
and/or Chris Wood of traffic on hendrix's electric ladyland. I
think this expermient will work out fine"

"saturday 4 Nov 2023, 2-4 pm. I COULD have listened to harvard
football WHRB 95.3, but opted for Squeaky Wheels on crash
course for the ravers WMFO. Squeaky Wheels
is Matt Gilbert of Harlequin,guitar, J
Bruce Scott, Beachcombers bass and Al hendry
drums (Bob Cenci's Battle Green). Good power trio, guitar
and drums sounded like Hendrix's are you expierienced mixed with
Grand Funk's On Time, traces of Mountain, too, maybe. Brian had
Matt introduce band and he goes "Al Hendry; plays with Kenne
Highland!" disography: asa volume two and mad painters cds.
Matt didnt want to stop playing but Brian said :"No!
time for the Boston Groupie News concert report!"
Maybe you'll see an Alta kaka rocka hobblin' on on a cane."

Sonntag, "Remember the fifth of November" 2023. lilypad
4-7 pm. The Bald bastards of Hugh opened up. Mel
Fitzhugh is also in Ginger Ibex and was
in Sans Nomenclature (RIP Anderson Mar). This duo starts out with
two bass fiddle sounding lke Charlie Mingus jamming with John Cale
(bowed fiddle ala "black angel's death song"). Mel also
played piano/guitar and bass with the bassist and lastly was a cover
of leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" where she sang high notes
I cant hit. "In Held 'Twas I". I am also a Ginger Ibex
fan and all-female multi-instrumentation is a plus. Classical rock
like New York rocknroll ensemble and/or Ars Nova. Piano/ violins,
multiple instruments left my head spinning like Linda Blair Highland.
Last number pianist Sharon Crumrine brought out her flute for a
toon called "catnip" (she likes cats) which had a progression
from the verse of "sympatrhy for the devil": I-VII-IV.
Afterwards micelf/Gee Julie/Leon Rich/Sharon and a couple Mad painter/Somerville
thee-ate-er fans adjourned to the ole Ding Ho (now Ole) and the
ENCORE: was me singing Queen's "Bohemian Rapsody" on (Buffalo)
Springfield street with (Sharon) Needlez and (Gee Julie) Pinz harmonising
exquisitely. Gonna go to more Lily Pad performances soon! They have

"day of Wodin 8 Nov 2023. lilypad. 8 pm. Gill aharon
trio. Normally "normal" jazz, piano, upright
bass and drums but tonight; The Fourth Man is
a Claude Rains clone in floresecent green head wrap playing an
assortment of socket wrenches and other percussion. "What
the heck?" queries Miss Lyn, distant cuzzin of Jack kerouac.
Started out with FOUR people in audience whom were handed a glass
with a rubber mallet/ a tin can and mallet (The Invisible man
sez "this'll make more noise") AND one of them wind
tubes John keegan has played during a cover of hawkwind's "Silver
Gee Julie showed up and played with the percussion toys too;
I kept a neanderthal 4/4 beat on the used tin as the drummer did
all these jazz paradiddles. Fun was had by all! Gee Julie, like
the Lovin' Spoonful gives me the "Night Owl Blues",
as she heard some superb seissun coming out of the Druid at ten
pm. We drank coffee and Monkeed around "Listening to the
band"..Inman Square was hoppin'! You'd think things were
"(Not too shabbey) at the abbey"!".

meltzer. Notes: "She plays like Mingus. Drummer has Bitches
Brew-type percussion. thelonius Monk piano". "She playing

from my "Not fade Away" memory; Brittany attacks
the big ole upright fiddle with her now/sound tube like John keegan
has/other assorted toys and when she wound up the chattering teeth
toy and placed it on the floor...she was so frantic playing even
her glasses flew off! ('AINT THAT glass NOT?")..."tHINK
ABOUT IT" (Yardbirds b-side): the Invisible man from the
day of Wodin was on drums! playing a snare with kitchen knifes/
running the knives around metal bowls....if hr wore a turban and

More fun in Inman Sqaure on a weeknight!"....
