Next jam is undetermined at this point.

It was the return of the band for a big night of big jam.  It was a hot and cold night because the music was hot for the most part but it was tough for me to hear because of the tail end of a cold. Kev and Scott also had cold elements to their health.  There were no guests at all.

A few business issues to take care of.  Larry needs to know what Wednesdays are open for the summer so we can play a gig at the Crossroads bar in Garwood, NJ.  I say we aim for July 26 or August 2.  August 9 and 16 are both no good for us.  Get prepared for my acoustic night for my birthday on June 27.  I'll figure out the song I want during this week and let you all know.  Check out my new band sketch on out Deadstein member's web page.  It's my best work to date.  Finally, check out our guestbook for a yearning Deadhead from India is getting his freaky kicks off by following our quest to play this music.

We started the night with the big bang of the Bucket and to my surprise the big bang was self contained and not annoying.  I thank everyone who was involved in that showing of self control. I think it had a payoff in that it allowed us to build up consistently throughout the song to a feverish pitch.  This was a motif or a motus-operandi that we used effectively throughout the night.  Birdsong had some real good wandering jams based on this principle.  That may have been the best moments of the night as we played together quite well.   This was followed by a powerful Let it Grow with Andy's telecaster piercing the asbestos ridden air.  Actually Andy's pre-pizza Pizza Tape renditions were quite enjoyable especially Man of Constant Sorrow.  This was ironic since Andy refused to eat pizza out of protest or something.

Trister wore out halfway through the Terrapin and bolted.  This left us with one last song to put a flavorful icing on the jam cake.  We almost didn't make it as we  unenthusiastically suggested songs.  We ended with a Jack Straw which was a real good choice because it rocks and had some subtle moments to it.

It was a very humid night with a drop or two falling.  It was also a night of Chuck Noblock making 3 throwing errors in one game.  Puerto Rican men are being arrested by the bunch for abusing, groping, harassing, etc. women during this weekends Puerto Rican day parade.

Sorry for the bolt...the Terrapin was really bumming me out. Nobody was listening and everybody was fucking up including me and I was out of tune and my back hurt and I was tired and needed to get home early anyway.

By the way, I saw Isis the other day on TV with Capt. Marvel. Her trick is that she can control nature by receiting some silly poems like, "Oh mighty winds on rye, lift me now so I can fly." It was pretty bad stuff. Capt. Marvel wasn't going to be able to save to two hiking teenages from the oncoming forrest fire. They were all going to burn to death but along came Isis, asked to clouds to rain and it put out the fire. The pen is mightier than the sword, magic rope and invisible plane, etc.

No one mentioned when Larry can schedule that gig, yet. Let's get that going.

I just spoke to Scott and he was in a rush to get out to a client or something and he asked me to post this week's jam date. It will be Tuesday this week, June 20, 2000. See you all there, except Dave who cannot make it. Sorry Dave.

First offshore report of the year and it's not a good one. Went sharking out of Montauk yesterday. 25 miles SSE of the point, 7 hours of drifting and dreaming, not even a Blue Shark, let alone the elusive Isurus oxyrinchus; or Mako Shark. That's why they call it fishin not catchin.

Just heard from Scott again and we are back on for a Thursday jam. He just found out he has some Tuesday night obligations related to his children so Deadsteinb for this week is now back to Thursday June 22, 2000.

I just want to let you guys know that I just found a used EQ, single channel 31 band Yamaha EQ and bought it, this way I don't have to keep moving the EQ I now have between Deadstein and my other jam. It should be here next week for good.

In speaking to the guy I bought it from he told me he has 3 good quality, pretty big Yamaha Floor Wedges he's trying to sell also. He wants to sell the 3 as a bunch asking $500, he states they are quite good, new they go for about $400 a piece. In addition he's got the amp his band used to power 4 of them. I think we could get the 3 wedges and an amp for about $700 so if people want to split that it may be a big help to us in hearing the vocals with more power (425 watts/ wedge. Our currently under sized thing delivers 300 at a strain. I'll take 1/3, Larry seems to want 1/3 and another singer would need another third, etc. Speak to me tomorrow night or post asap if you interested so I can get this before it sells out. The guy seems legit, I was discussing the stuff on the phone with him for a while. The stuff all used but not abused. He did sound for a 50's, 60's act, no heavy metal. If I get another taker tonight or tomorrow, Scott, Rich, Andy or Dave I'll implement the purchase. Maybe split it 4 ways, get one more wedge and transform our existing two speakers to wedges and we are all set to have some upclose and personal sound.
