Capt. Freaks
  • A big night after that had some real nice moments.  Kevin was back from the Hamptons more baked than usual.  Donny H. was in town again and pulling off some quality catering.  From Jelly beans and Spree to Delicioso (formerly Memphis Trio which wasn't Italian enough.  Tom and, someone' going to have to help me out were also there boogying to us.  Freakboy woke up in time to get going on a few songs.  Andy's Ratt-Box has a tremendous squeal at times that can kill a dog.  I sunk a 9, actually a 10 ball but whose counting, on the break of 9 ball,  Defeating Kevin without him having to get up.  We moved the fan up stairs to blow the cold air down, marginal impacts.  I saw Dave at the gas station on the way home, a little freaky.  Mets win  double header to pull in a virtual tie with Chicago for the wildcard.  Clinton still had sexual relations with that woman.  Scott brought the panel lady down for an early tour.
  • For once, we had a good count off to start the Hell in a Bucket and we were off and running.  It was pretty cool how we just powered up and never looked back.  The Bucket was great, perfect structure, few flaws and well executed.   Real powerful, impressive and so interesting how. . .
  • Poor the Jack-A-Roe was.  Hopeless from the start, I could take a lot of blame for it.  Dave was doing drum work and it was a disoriented.  We battled our way through it but it had few redeeming qualities.
  • I liked the walkin' blues.  I personally gave it my Robert Johnson blues lick liet motif for those who were counting.  I know it wasn't worth counting.  What was nice was Andy's use of the Bic, not pick, to provide some nice slide.
  • Ramble On Rose was weak, a little disjointed like the Jack-A-Roe.   I think we would have trouble with some Jerry songs throughout the night.   Larry had the midi set up for it but someone Jinxed him and he didn't pull off his classic trumpet solo.  I would like to make a motion that jinxes are not allowed at Deadstein.
  • Minglewood had some real good moments but it lost a bit toward the end.
  • I wasn't thrilled by the Row Jimmy but it was the best Jerry song of the set.
  • I really liked the Masterpiece.  I think there were some harmonies going on and Andy had some of his classic moments with use yet.
  • A really hot, jazzy country jam in G7 out of a song's length Stagger Lee Jam.  The Stagger Lee Jam wasn't good but the jam afterwards was great.   Cool and grooving and dancing to the music.  Right on Baby.  When Larry was done doing a fully quick change of the strings he jumped into the jet-stream as we transitioned into a Cumberland.  We have the great wall of soundIt was great stuff.
  • Food was great, too much to mention.  Highlight of the meal was the interesting burnt corner slice of the sausage Sicilian pie.  Tomaotes weren't that good.  Bread and butter.  That's dinning.  Just saw Emi-Lou Harris on Conan.  She was really good.
  • Playing didn't start like the Bucket on a good count.  I still stand by my 7-8-9-10.  I've heard it too many times.  Nevertheless, playing in the band is about jamming and not counting.  Andy really took some time delving into some interesting worlds in and out of a Fender-tubed-wah-wah world.  It sounded really good.
  • Got to go to bed but the Fingers was fair and aI liked Larry's choice of the She Belongs to Me.  It was perfect.  Revolution was good and another night in the annals.  An on and off rain of the way home with a cup of coffee which facilitates such a long post at 1:40 a.m. 
  • By the way, I want Kevin's band photos.

It's feels good to be back in the company of freaks. After a week of good weather and good family in the Hamptons, it's odd how nice it is to hang out in a hole-in-the-ground in the middle of NYC. There was a lot of music played last nite, and from the get-go it was fierce. "Bucket" has been a Deadstein "D" list tune for years, but has miraculously jumped up to the "A" list while no one was looking. It was shockingly hot. The drummers and I seemed to have unwrapped that one like a precious gift. I think Trister's complete understanding of that song has something to do with it as well. TheHutch's Deadstein record is as impressive as the Yankees; he continues to please and astound. I have not seen my good buddy, Freakboy, for a few weeks, and of course, it was a pleasure and a treat to see him and his "coif du jour". He is pushing the "Japanese bank acceptable appearance" envelope to the ceiling. But, boy, does it look pretty when he spins like a top. By the way, when I got to my car last nite I had a muscle spasm in my left hand (between my thumb and first finger) that was so bad I thought I was going to pass out. It still is sore.

Sorry for the Ratt squeal...you should hear it without the volume pedal (although Dave still could'nt). Like the old saying..you don't get off until you cough..thats how I know it's dialed in. Great night with big jams although my Cumberland (which was probably the hottest thing of the night) got viciously cut. Shades of viola lee...really hot shit. I finally had a heart burn free ride home due to knot abstinence and diddn't need coffee...just the tape. PS I can't play Tues 9/1 can we go 9/3?? By the way Kev that sounds like a personal problem.

thanks to larry brent for providing the vincent pricish after dinner music. i thought the lead guitar playing was excePtionally good from all 3 of you.and that instrumental staggar lee>jazz improv>cumberland was great... i'm starting an on-line pole...i vote for DONNY doing the ordering from home next week, i dont even care where it comes from!!! 9/3 sounds good for me...(thats a date not a time signature), speaking of which i thought the playing started great because of the count, larry "G". AND THE JACK-AROE and THE RAMBLE-ON ROSE dont play well because deep down every one knows they are really not such good songs!!! p.s. dont wear anything nice if you are sitting next to johnny.....unless you loooooove whipped cream !!!!

What's with the Johnny Whipp Cream. Did Dave have sexual relations with that freak? I could see Jack-a-Roe being suspect with respect to being a good song but shooting down Ramble on Rose. Those are fighting words.

The Row Jimmy was played way to slow for perfection. Jack a roe although a good tune in my books was attemted in a slower/ polka'ish manner which never took shape. As mentioned above the Bucket was real BIG, G Jam was wildly intense as it went into Cumberland. Perfect tempo I thought. I finally got smart and brought my old Technic Dubbing deck ( Dubbed many tapes) and plugged in to enjoy the sounds of Deadstein after the've occured. I hope nobody minds, But Dave and I took it upon ourselves to reposition all the amps in front of the round table facing the drums. (Just Kidding) Is kidding aloud in Deadstein? My friends Tom and Sandie really had a good time. They dug the cumberland thing as we all did.

If kidding wasn't aloud in Deadstein I would be able to talk. In any case, if there is one thing that Deadstein is aboout is it is "Aloud" As a matter of fact, "Aloud" would be an excellent name for our band.

There is a great rendition of a slow Jack-A-Roe on 11-6-79, Philadelphia Spectrum. A classic tape for those who care. I don't know if it's available on MPEG3 yet but I have a hissy tape of it. I think if Trister want to try something new he should try hitting the submit button only once. Just kidding, if that is aloud. Ithink the solution for Dave's problem is a bigger mixig console and micing, if this is a word, the instruments. It's just an investment. P.S. I would have mentioned Tom and Sandie being there, and I should have, but all Tuesday night after the jam while writing my posting I couyldn't think of her name to save my soul and I didn't want to insult her by calling her Nancy, like I almost did. I thank Scott for this reference.

I just checked the dictionary and I'm an idiot for declaring I'm and idiot, so I'm not such an idiot aftewr all, am I? Any way Scoptfhfgdjtt is the idiot, but at my level.

I heard some of this week on the way home. The Bucket was not as good as earier discussed based only on the feeling without the reality on the tape. It usually works the other way. Whatever.

Middle of the 5th..... And the cameraman focus's on this freak with a tied died cape up in the stands. Everyone in my house see's this and yells JOHNNY.... I have a feeling he was just warming up. He is armed with his 17" Frame Drum which we haven't seen yet. Stay Tuned to MSG Freaky Network.

Hey Jordan how's it going. Good to hear from you. Get us a place to play in the Capitol District and I'm sure I could convince the band to play there. Wouldn't a gig at Sutter's be cool? We could call it Deadstein with Cheese Fries. Maybe at O'Heaney's Ballon and it could be Deadstein with Shuttle Burgers (A now dated reference) or at W.T.'s and it would be Deadstein with a Long Island Iced Tea (Another dated reference becuase I assume no one drinks Iced Tea's anymore. Finally, maybe Deadstein at Cusatos and it could be Deadstein with a Sausage du' formage. Just a few food thoughts.
