Sonntag 29 Nov 20. stopped into Somerville
Grooves (my only out and about musical At Large)
for small business day or somesuch (Screamin' Lord Sutch?) and
"Mister grooves" (Grooves owner, Charan
Devereaux to you) Stooges:
Live at Goose Lake 8 Aug 70.
funhouse was released 7 July 70 (bought my copy
October 1971, Vince's record Shoppe, brockport NY) and basically
this is Funhouse, LIVE! Band is So tight (VERSUS 31 Dec
73 Academy of music, NYC or the Metallic KO album). I cannot rave
enuff about this album! It's a short trek to Reptilians
From Andromeda (Istanbul Turkey)! This was followed
by the Focus album with "Hocus Pocus"; this
dude plays all my old '70s albums! Turns out he was on WZBC in
'80s; I knew the early '80s guys but he did know Dave
Smalley of DYS (it IS a SMALLey world isn't it?) plus
Dave Herlihy of O. Positive (whom, John
Sox and Pete Lost had the manics, dave
was in John Paul and the Sartes! I met him in '81 when Streets
opened; Sox had to pretend he was Miss Lyn!)….ok THAT was
the highlight of my day".
Monntag, 30 Nov 20 and Saint Andrew's Day in Scotland.

Lotsa folks from Boston music scene excited; PUT YOUR FUGGIN MONEY
WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS! About 1998, my distant cuzzin Linda Garreau
and I were shoppin', Mystery Train, mass. Ave. and somebody said
"I was just listening to Hello World the other nite….your
kenne,right?"....reasons to shoppe there!"....
day of Wodin, 2 Dec 20, four months til I'm 65 "don't wanna

"Winner By Elimination"...Turner Classic Movies, Smithereens
released 11 Sept 82! What a different world then AND
story of "jersey Girl' goes "punk" so NYC looks like
the NYC ken Kaiser and I used to leave jersey for also. urban decay/
'80s clothes...no mention of Ronald Reagan! Richard hell
is in this movie! (Miss Lyn has a tale....)...This movie IS
on youtube (Spanish subtitles!) AND, since this is a "punk
rock" movie, sweetsoundtrack.com
> Movies > smithereens says it "features 10 songs from
artists like The Feelies, The Nitecaps , the raybeats and Richard
Hell and the Voidoids". Lastly, there's a scene in the Peppermint
Lounge, which I may possibly have passed out in whilst roadie-ing

Sunday Morning" 0639 29 Nov 20. Von Aybike celik Ozbey
von Istanbul Turkey und der sanger mit Reptilians From Andromeda.
from lp Must be Destroyed. on youtube:
"Don't trust Any". (and
on Bandcamp) THAT sentiment equals my own "everybody's
a Lyre" and koko Taylor's "never trust a man"(and
"Everybody Sucks But Me!"-ed)! "Deniz Felder
played the saxophone on this song". I promptly friended him
and he did likewise! listen to the youtube and to me it echoes X-Ray
Spex. Ken Kaiser and I were reminiscing
march 1978 seeing X-ray Spex at CBGB's (same weekend Kim
Kane of Slickee Boys told Miss Lyn about 999!).
(I remember distinctly standing in the living room in Laurel
MD and Kim Kane held up the first 999 album and said "Miss Lyn I
think you'll like this one" - and we put it ont he turntable yup
he was SO right!! And I remember that night seeing X Ray Specs,
I pinched PolyStyrene's cheek and said "You are SO CUTE!!"-ed.)
I also told our John Keegan to listen to said sax
and he DID have Reptilian from Andromeda stickers; "they're
on my bari(tone sax) case"...EVERYONE needs that merch! (plus
BGN masks and date books!). Reptilians COULD be album of the year
but there is that 1970 live Stooges album"

"Freitag 4 Nov 20. Tomorrow, in a Nor'Easter, heading to Lowell
Street Studios to record three backing tracks on Lil Richard's
birthday (WHOOO!!!!!!). But, sadly, I just got a 2008-era Washington
DCene "passing'. Through MY SPACE, I be-friended a college
DJ in northern Virginny, Sean Epstein, whom played
the Gizmos (I am grateful for any and all airplay!). We agreed to
meet in southern Maryland at a party the Slickee Boys were playing
at; I rode with Mr and Mrs Martha Hull (my cuzzin!) but her husband,
Bob berberich, had drummed in Grin and we'd watched some youtube
of him on Midnight Special! "Surprise Surprise", the Slickee
Boys asked ME to sing "Jailbait Janet" and Sean's video
man was Steve Garland (RIP this week, age fiddy,
so young....)...Sean interviewed me, Steve videoed and it's
STILL on youtube, which obviously, I discovered in 2008. Only
met with Steve twice more; Columbus Day recording session in northern
Virgnny, youtubed and comments from Larkin38: "sounds like
O. rex"; that was Solomon gruberger! (RIP 2012). Close to Christmas,
brought Jody Moore down there for more recording;
I was late coz I was watching Alexandria Virgnny Scottish Christmas
parade! (Jody Moore did a VHS of this....did I see clan Maxwell?)...we
took Steve for indian food at a strip mall (cheap studio tyme payment!
as in FREE!) and crashed with Mr and Mrs Patricia Ragan, whom I
got to celebrate a birthday with! (Me; "this is excellent!
you're still complaining!" she wrote for Punk; STILL alive
and well!). I joined facebook in 2009, friended mister Steve Garland
and his brother broke the news...well. hoping he blesses all future
recording sessions! "Saint Stephen"!"
