No Second Set Due to the dismantling of the system in preparation for Saturday's gig.  Actually I never looked at the setlist for what we would have played but it was no great loss.

Playing next week is Saturday at Laura's party in Syosette followed by either Wednesday or Thursday next week. Tuesday.

Two New Originals (Early conceptual multitracks so forgive everything and at least my first attempts at writing anything.   What the hell?).  These are downloadable real-audio files.


This was out two year anniversary in WWI, how time goes by.   Weds., July 30, 1997 was the first night of the new PA in the bowls of William Weiss and its been very good to us.

Patrick gave us one last week prior to his departure and he brought a friend of his who made it all the way from northern Connecticut to see us.  I forget his name.  Andy's Randi came and hung for most of the show.  I couldn't hear her sing again.  That was about it for people but we do appreciate all who come and like us.  Johnny was there.  He slept for a bit, twirled for Larry during the El Paso no concert news. No Brotman and the rest were present.  Andy got his mic back.  I played Kevin my new single "Nothing is Our Fortune",  I'm looking for a singer.  Andy Dave and I dabbled on it a bit with Lazy Man Blues.   As Andy says, a more traditional arrangement.  I was pushing for the implementation of a Deadstein album of our originals.  Kevin's worried about the strain it would put on it all.  Scott's ambitious.  The thought of it make's Dave cream in his pants, Larry can go either way and I just want to use my new stuff.  

The music seemed as open, listenable, listening and harmonious as ever.  It seemed as if I was able hear and utilize everyone in the room.  It seemed small, yet powerful.  A spade is a spade.  Digital, Digital, Digital.   Nevertheless, enough inside.

From the get-go the music was good.  We are such a tease because we play so well but give oh so little, but what we do play and give is special.   The Getaway was great.  I asked Andy how to play the little Bob riff which he does all the time and wish I could play and he didn't know what the hell I was talking about.  Kind of like the Siberia Katru, then the Getaway started and he played it by instinct ASAP, which was kind of cute.  From there on everything was hot. We just rocked the song.

LG and AT ready to get on the bus.We transitioned powerfully into a great Promised Land.   Candyman was just perfect small to big to small.  Larry and I had a nice thing going on during his lead when I was playing slide.  At least I think it was good.   Almost flawless execution.  El Paso really boogied and it was very open and inviting  where it was just easy to play and play off.  There were definitely some excellent things going on during it.  Didn't skip a beat, little Tristerlette's sprinkled throughout.  Birdsong is another example of some great things we played.   Had a little jam going into it.  It was never a struggle, always a pleasure.   I liked the Rooster also,  Andy threw his slide away and I picked it up off the floor.  I was liking that slide of his from the Candyman and it continued with the Rooster.  We had the quality Ramble on Rose, once again filled with listening amongst all of us which lead to some great playing and riffs.  I think there was even good listening of the guitars and the singing.

We made the move to skip the It's All Over Now and went to the Halfstep Franklin's.  We had the more correct Halfstep lead for the first time since the new book came out.  It worked well except at the end as it goes back into the lead.  That seemed a little awkward.   Otherwise it was cool.  I see why people like it.  I though the Franklins was really good, really had spunk and a nice, almost correctly reggae groove to it.  Unfortunately we had a seven-tenths deduction on the ending.

We had Deliciozo, rice balls, ices, salad, no butter, the official condiment of Deadstein.  Barry Sanders announced his retirement and Lance Armstrong won the Tour-de-France.  It was a continuation of several weeks of very hot weather 90's with no rain, drought conditions are beginning to hit us hard.

Another great evening of Deadstein on a hot and sweaty night. I don't know whats going to be with the freaky kid and his favorite couch, maybe he should buy it and take it home. As far as the music let me say the listening dynamic is growing by leaps and bounds. Nice going guys. Dave don't worry, we'll stretch out the Birdsong on Saturday.

Deadstein is ready for the Summer 99 tour. I can only hope for Laura's sake we can play with that much integrity at her gathering. It seemed so relaxed and easy at times...I was even able to look around and smile a little bit (very out of character). I hope FB enjoyed it; he made no gestures indicating musical gratification (except when LB called him up during the el paso; but that was trite and conceived). Thanks for the posting Larry, I was chuckling all the way until I remembered that movie with Sandra Bullock when thay stole her identity.....PS Mets winning streak ends at six. I think those disgusting uniforms worn by the Pirates distracted them. 1.5 behind Atlanta....Lets go Mets!

The one blemish on an otherwise exemplary student record. I guess I'm no good at music.

Lots of business to cover. I picked up a microphone and a mic stand today so all I need is an input and my voice back since the cold I caught last Sunday left me sounding like a bullfrog. I'm all for chipping in for a mixer to increase input capacity, hopefully I can swing enough overtime work hours to cover it. Attempting originals is a good thing, providing the structure is open and the changes organic. I haven't heard the two tunes under consideration yet, but if Freak Magnet is any indication, we should be able to not only handle them but joyously ride the wave. Sorry I wasn't around on Tuesday to tear down and pack up the gear but it was the only night I could get Dylan/Simon tickets. The Dylan part alone far exceeded my expectations and made the outrageous ticket price purchased over the internet more palatable. See you Saturday.
