|Next Jam: Wednesday
June 24th. My Birthday show next week (6/23/63)
- The standard full compliment of Deadstein was
there to enjoy one of the few waning days
remaining at our beloved abode. A place where
some much music has been made and calories
ingested. You would think the heat generated by
these activities would give rise to the Phoenix
of gentrification, enabling the perennial
economic sustenance of a Richie room in the
Asbestos Boy's company.
I guess all things must change. Richie doesn't
need a room, Dennis will go and raise a family,
asbestos turns to sham recycling and Deadstein is
out on the streets. Gods help us all! Some one
read this and let us play in their bar once a
week. Maybe the people Bill mentioned around
Houston Street could come to fruition.
- Johnny Spill Boy Showed up and enjoyed the music.
For the record, I did not see him live up to his
name. Finally when the end is near he decides to
stop spilling. It's a freakin' world.
- Menaker was preaching a theme of making each
verse, as you play through a song, a distinct
entity. It was probably the playing of the BIODTL
that made him say it.
- Kevy really enjoyed the
Crazy Fingers. he was primed and like the playing
of it. I can't blame him.
- Johnny was nice enough to sacrifice the Beat It
to satisfy our unquenchable thirst. It couldn't
be appreciated more but he missed a good BIODTL.
- The Deal was slow, actually not that slow and was
okay. The jam was prematurely cut off by Larry B.
It surprised most of us.
- Here Comes Sunshine was nice. We flipped it with
the fast cowboy tune, Cumberland, so we could get
the nice transition. The transition was a bit
rough but was at least there for the taking and
had hope. After the first verse of singing we
really put the song into high gear. It was pretty
- I think the Picasso was good.
- Loose Lucy was also good. Ya Ya Ya Ya Ya Ya Ya.
Thank you for a real good time.
- Masterpiece was sweet
- Althea->Victim made a set interrupted by our
friendly neighbor hood little pizza guy who
always brings the goods. Menaker even got a card.
- .Tuesday night and we went with the traditional
Memphis Pizza. They were not to disappoint. The
pie was well done, and I mean in both senses.
Smell and Taste. All kidding aside. I'll miss
this place. We also had knots. A bit dense.
Heroes and salad. Johnny had the ghettiwetty.
- Spill Boy did his usual fine job in a deli run,
supplementing the already abundant Memphis fake
types of Italian desserts. I had some type of
very dense spongy chocolate mouse. It ain't no
- Kevin was polling as to what time he generally
begins to seriously lose it during a jam. For the
record I don't think he really lost it this
night. Good for him.
- Dark Star was hot, pretty spacey. Larry and I got
into a nice bit of feedback for a while. Nothing
wrong with that, as long as you play it and don't
have to listen to it. My ears are still ringing
as I type.
- We skipped the Playin' and just did the Uncle
Johns. It was really nice. Tight, sung well and
- Truckin' Speedway didn't feel quite as good
- Sugar Mag woke me up as it always does. Nothing
like slamming on your guitar with passion.
- It shocked me when It was 7 minutes to 11 and we
had time to give Johnny the Touch of Grey which
had been neglected for almost 2 weeks if we
didn't do it there. It was okay. Consistent but
not full. Eh, what are you going to do?
- It was a comfortable late spring day.
It wasn't humid outside and just a little warm
but the room was cool. During the powerful Sugar
Magnolia you could finally feel the heat.
