Jack-O-Freaks
Once again another great Deadstein night of music.  No guests, Scott was still getting over his great gig at U. of P. with Larry M. and those guys, the music was a lot more tame, less nauseating and pretty darn good.  Playing was great, the break between the second and third verses was crisp.  The jam was hot but not out of control.  A got the mandolin working for the UJB and Larry was right on for the lead between the verses in the Victim.  The night started off right.

I recall a great Scarlet with a great lead.  It was the sort of the that makes you turn to the tape decks to make sure you got it.  I did and we didn't right after the lead I turned the decks on just in time for the super spacey jam into the shock of the Estimated which was very comfortable and played well.  Had the old eight string going for the Devil and Queen Jane.  If felt and sounded better than it did during the UJB and was fun.  Larry got beeped, although it didn't work and Dave grabbed his guitar during his call and we muddled a Thrill is gone.  The F is tough on the mandolin.   The Jack-A-Roe was better and moved and matches Kevin's them. 

Duprees and Picasso seemed like throw aways while waiting for the food to come.   Nevertheless they were worthwhile.  We only had 11 songs, 9 fully-serious but due to the jammy nature of several of them, just as dinner was, it was fulfilling.   As a matter of fact I'm still burping.

Andy had the sound of the 7/31/83 Scarlet from Ventura Beach, check it out.  It also has the hot Other One if you actually check it out.  I just saw Eagle-Eyed Cherry on the Tonight Show and he stunk.

Another great Deliciozo meal well ordered by Johnny.  The salad was good two with no tomato, one with extra tomato  They forgot the extra dressing but it was good.   Crispy Pizza, well done rice balls, good bread, nice knots, soda, pasta, pollo and mendo to round off the evening.  Weather was beautiful!

This week in history: Today 15-25 kids were killed Littleton, Co. when their highschool class mates opened fire and pipe bombed them.  They aimed for athletes and minorities.  I think they were Goths.  The Serbian war is in its 4th week.   The Great One retired and gas prices are on the rise.  Andy started his new Job.

Some of us came in for a supplemental jam last Thursday but due to a freaky blackout we only played a song and a half.  How Sweet It Is, West LA, for the record.  It's too bad because it was going to be good.  It was a worthwhile evening nevertheless.

What a great night. Music, food & freakboy is starting to get into it again. I think one long set focuses the band and tends to inspire heartfelt playing. We should eat early or late everytime because second sets are rarely inspiring. I was almost in Connectictut by the time the Playin-7Uncle John's-7Victim (yes, Larry, -7Victim)was over. If you listen to the end of Victim you'll hear I was going for a -7Scarlet but nobody picked me up (just like nobody picked me up from the cute little bearded guy). Nice volume effort by everyone...it makes such a difference. I would also like to comment on the food. Wow. Jonathan was well within his raving rights when almost having a sexual experience with that sicilian pie. I thought he was gonna ask me for a cigarette. I can't wait for lunch so I can investigate that chicken parm situation. Bravo.

It is good to be back on the posting board. Spring is here and Summer is coming soon. The Playing opener got things going in the right direction. Davy's intense drumming brought the band to some early high levels of rigor. Scotty's vocal harmonies continue to improve, which is fairly difficult because there isn't much room for improvement. His Uncle John's was way cool. The band really got into a groove when the Scarlet Jam unfolded. When the song was almost over, I was enthralled with the peak that the band was collectively reaching. Thank you all for making it a continuing reality. How about that Gindolin. I noticed continued improvements in his "fan" technique. Keep up the good work. I don't know if words can describe how good the food was last night. The sicilian pie bread crust outdid itself. My god. How can pizza be that good? I know that the Trist will enjoy the Chicken Parm w/spaghetti leftover. I'm looking forward to next week. What happened to Spillboy? OK, that's it.

We should pre-order during the day and have the food delivered to WWI at 7:00 on the nose. Eat from 7-8 and play to 11:00. In addition we should just have a small dessert planned for halfway through the night. Just a hope I'm trying to forward to you. Maybe, everyone should come in pre-fed and the jams should start at 7:30 with dessert halfway through. As good as the food is, I can get food anywhere but I only have so many instances where I can jam. Just a thought that I know will never come to fruition.

I agrees with Larry G on the food issue. A simple adgust ment akin to the one LG suggested, I think, would take us down the path of more better playin'. And the playin' is good.

Why does Dave hate Kevin? He hasn't said anything, eventhough we all know he doesn't want to eat early.

After reviewing everybody's post re: food. I to feel it would be a great concept to change the format in which we EAT so we can get more playing in. Try and think back to before I came into the band.I don't think the meals were part of the scene. Not that I apoligize for many great eating orgy's, but the way things are sounding "music wise" The pre fed thing sounds good. "Lesh Burp, More Play" What will Johnny do with his spare time?

I say let's eat together...early or late....not in the middle. It's way too iterruptive to spend an hour and a half eating/burping/farting and then trying to play again. Let's mix it up..it will take some planning but we can do it. I really hate spending more time in my car than wearing my guitar.

How about one person a week is responsible for catering the entire evening's food. They pay and provide one out of every seven times. It would be up to that person to coordinate the delivery of all and that way each week each of us doesn't have to spend money on eating. I could bring in cans of pork and beans, a crock and a hotpot. I'll even mix up some grape cool-aid. Ithink I can feed all of us for under $10.00.

I'm thrilled Trister was pleased with Tuesday nite’s festivities. His quick departure left everyone guessing. After a month or so of non-standard jams, I decided a set-list with a "space training" theme was in order. Deadstein took to it like Dave to gravy. It's like riding a bike or mail order - you don't think about it - you do it. I thought we did it pretty well. It certainly felt good. While there were shaky parts, when it settled down and locked in, it was spacey-good. Estimated took us on a freaky jazz odyssey that I have been craving for a while. It was satisfying. I'm also thrilled that L.L. Brent kept his nausea at bay. The volume problem seems to have been solved, although I have no idea what was changed. I agree one long set seems to keep us focused and standing-up, but it's hard to imagine Deadstein taking initiative to alter Standard Operating Procedure. Who's gonna do it? - Freakboy!? While he is a skilled expert with years of experience in "list making" and ordering, He is no "mover or shaker", and change of this nature will require all of Deadstein’s ability to deal in reality and take action. God help us.

I have to agree on all fronts and fonts. The volume was much more in control and the overall dynamic was most pleasing most of the time. On the food font I vote eat early, we get the same thing every week anyway, if it was delivered at 7PM we could definitely play 8-11 and get way more music in.

Dick Dale is god. Dont miss him in the city this week..saw him last night at Toad's in New Haven. My ears are still ringing....as I found out true Dick heads wear earplugs. Bring if you got em - the man is not shy about turning it up. He makes us sound like an acoustic band but the guy rocks.

By the way, for the past several months the guestbook was messed up and the submissions were going somewhere else. Anyway, I found that somewhere else and posted them in the guest book. Umfortunately, there were no dates associated with the guest book entries but there were several so check them out. The most common question is , "Do you guy's play anywhere and/or post a schedule." They don't seem to understand us.

If I forget tonight, I cannot play next Tuesday due to my meeting. We need to plan when next week's jam will be. By the way, if we do this pre-ordering of food as is apparently taken care of, I can go pick-up drinks at my local supermarket and save some $$$. All we would have to do is purchase some ice somewhere. Just a thought. In addition, desserts are available at a place like that. Maybe next week if I get the charge to do so.
