Next Jam: Thursday July 24th.

  • I would like to start by I apologizing for this much belated posting. Besides having been busy, it is all for the better. In all actuality, this is the first posting I have attempted using my new voice recognition software. So far, it has been very frustrating. This thing, by IBM, is quite buggy. To boot, I just lived through the most violent thunder and lightning I have ever seen. It was working well until the two or three blackouts ruined my fun.
  • Time will tell if writing new web pages by speaking them will engender significantly more meaningless rambling by your humble narrator. Anyway, back to the jam.
  • Well, this was the to be the second to last week. Dennis was in rare form, providing all sorts of insights into his life. We began to outline a biography of this interesting trail through the musical era we only dream about. When I get his permission, I hope to be able to publish this story on our web. There are many interesting tidbits.
  • Besides Dennis and Johnny, there were not to do many other people in the room. Even Larry Menaker was not there. An interesting side note, for the first time we will not able to pay our bill. I don't know what happened but I'm sure we will find out.
  • I was in a feisty mood and I picked on Johnny a bit. I was only picking on him because it was in my devil's advocate sense of humor. He kept complaining about not getting the Touch of Grey and I was giving him grief for it.
First Set Comments:
Half Time Comments:
  • As usual, we got a late start due to Larry Brent’s schedule. We were supposed to eat early so we wouldn't lose any playing time. Unfortunately, we never got to this early meal. We were relegated to eating some pretty good corner-deli sandwiches. I had what may have been the last pork by-product sandwich that I may ever have. Something tells me Ben's deli doesn't have any pork by-product sandwiches. That is okay because I will eat corned beef and pastrami instead of pork by-product any day.
Second Set Comments: Brrp! Ahhh! Help me! Are we really going to play? Boy it's cold in the studio. I want dessert! What are we going to cut out? Shit, I wished I washed my hands. My eye is bulging out of my socket. Damn us to Hell!
  • The Touch of Grey was the ironic song of the evening. Johnny was begging for it all night long, he was protesting the fact that he was not getting it and and we surprised him him by playing it as a last song. It happened to be one of our best Touch of Grey's ever.
  • CloudsIt was hot but not as hot as the previous two weeks. Air conditions, to a point is at our new location. We have that to look forward to. I bet there is heat without kerosene also. The jet rocket in the closed room without and escape hatch or ventilation never made me feel to good.
    General Comments
Talk it up. Be nice. please say something or I will loose my desire to write these things up. Fill in the deatils, the fun little stories that I cannot remember. The little things like Allison calling exactly as the last note of the first set ends

The second set was very enjoyable. I'm glad that the band gave me the Touch I was looking for. It will be much better next time. It will be somewhat faster (Brightly) and Kevin will be more comfortable with his part when he gets a chance to look over my handiwork. But Larry G. forgot to indicate that the final song of the evening was U.S. Blues. I very much appreciate the coordination between Scotty and Kevy. I like to bang my imaginary gongs and the interplay between Scotty and Kevy make it oh so enjoyable.

Bye Bye.

As we approach our last jam at Gansevoort St., I'd like to take this oppurtunity to let you all know what a tremendous pleasure it has been to make this weekly mecca to our shrine. We don't know what the future has in store for us. We certainly will do our best to keep it going and make it better. But that doesn't mean we should not take special note of this turning point. The weekly consistency and momentum that Deadstein has created is truly one of the great musical happenings in this man's world. I can personally attest to it. Attending musical events is my specialty. I love you all. And I love your families.
