Deadstein is never short on freakiness, so why would last night be any different?

What is impressive is the inability for Deadstein to be stopped. On a night, in a month where all things Deadstein seem hopelessly lost, not only do we not lose our way, but we find magic. On the way in to the city, CoffeeBro and me figured it was going to be a snoozefest with us, Brotpen & MiniT. We had both called other guitar players, but none seemed hopeful. When we got there Alan Winkler was  already set-up. He had electric and acoustic in hand (he don't know us very well, do he?). Studio R was re-arranged without  piano or view into the control room. The kick drum pedal was not working well.
Brotpen's piano bench was confiscated and as Trister feared, the Twin was sounding like sh*t. But we were psyched and feeling good. 

We opened with a half-hearted Deep Elem, as we let Winkler pick the tunes from the MiniT master list. As we finished the first song CoffeBro's friend Alan Deutch(?) showed up with custom semi-hollow bodied guitar in hand. Does anybody else see the incredible irony and wackyness in the Bizarro-Deadstein, that at  one time boasted 3 Larry's and was now sporting 2 Alan's? He was good. The Deadstein core was unbelievably tight and hot. I was the 'host' anchor, so I was really concentrating on playing well and 'leading' the way. I played very well. Me and CoffeeBro were locked in tight. It was shocking how good it actually was., for a pick-up game. Anyway, I, we are psyched for true Deadstein next week. We are done with Smash, so next week will be at Carroll's or Ultra, depending on their availability.

Welcome the new era of Deadstein

I would like to thanks the two substitute Alans for sitting in for us last night. It sounds like the jam was really good so I'm happy my scheduling problems didn't stop the Deadstein machine from rolling. I look forward to next week and I'm psyched there was a jam and a page to post to. Thanks to kevin for the write up.

impressive. I feel sorry for the Alan that got the twin. Then again, the Alan that got the Line 6 wasn't much better off. Onwards and upwards. I'll miss studio A.

Thanks to Rich for the invite, Kevin for being a gracious host, Mitch for the energy, Terez for the sweet vocals,and Larry for the change of plans, though Mother Nature probably deserves credit for that. The other Alan's guitar did sound good, from what I was able to hear. It was all fun. Good luck at the new studio. I have pulled my bookings from Smash too due to their inflexible time slots and bad attitude. Over the years we have all bought that equipment many times over, yet Clay does not seem to care about the needs of his steady clients.

Well, Well, Well... Let me tell you, I will not miss Studio R, Smash or the gracious hospitality shown by our friends @ Smash. Thank you Alans for enabling the Deadstein machine to move forward and wreak havoc! It was good to jam with Al D once again, for legal reasons we must thank "the Spelltones and their management” for allowing Mr. D to oblige us. Here is a list of songs that were played, not in any particular order: Crazy Fingers, Eyes of the world, Hard to handle, Not fade away, going down the road feeling loud, Mr. Charlie, Thrill is gone, Ramble on Rose, China/Rider, Scarlet B., Sugaree, Playing in the Band... and probably some others Until next week @ Carroll's Later

I know Alan Deutch. He hung out with my old band Four Winds. Did he compile the New York Radio Guide? And does he live on Schermerhorn Street? Short guy with a comb over?

Nah. He is a professional camera man. Travels all over the world filming documentaries and such. Grew-up with CoffeeBro in Bayside. Playboy / bachelor and all-around-cool-kid. I guess in this case the ripples of Deadstein did not intersect.
