Underground Teenage Kicks in Beantown

So last Friday it was off to The Abbey Lounge in Somerville, MA (next to Cambridge (next to Boston)) with Ricky & Shelby at the invite of Malibu Lou the Punk Rock Balladeer.

So many good folks to meet after such a long drive, so few hot dogs, so many beers and so much other good music, I can't begin to say thanks, or hi, or I'll get you and your little dog too. (Thanks, everybody. Hi, everybody.)

I did find a note written in ballpoint on my thigh to keep an eye or ear out for Dry County Sorrow.
Also, The Dents, who are visiting NYC Aug 6. Good God Damn.

Thanks to Shelby for the pic (it's funny, you can barely see the chicken wire) and for driving home while Ricky and I finished our "Ultimate Championship of the Universe in Full Contact Auto-Bingo."

Alright, best 3 out of 5?

We're all underground teenagers now.

Kukla, Fran and I'll bet I made it up.

Does anybody else remember a movie on Kukla, Fran & Ollie where a little English boy on a homemade raft was sucked into a dam whilst his sister screamed from the shore?

Or was it all just some wonderful dream?

I wouldn't ask, but recently I found out, through the magic of the good old internet, that Johnny Sokko & his Flying Robot AND Ultraman (yes, even folk who speak Spanish, I think, remember him) are real.

Next I'm gonna find out there's a Santa Bunny.

Or that Lemmy's just your Dad all dressed up.

(I gotta say, if that last one's true, I'm very excited and very confused. Oh, and a little hungry.)

Fanning the Flames

Dakota Fanning is really just two guys in a suit.



That's a really neat suit.



Much better than the Tom Cruise one.

Supersuckers Poster Found, Reverend Delighted

Another triumph for indolence and procrastination on my part as Dave of GreedoNeverFired found the very poster I discussed last time on the Guy Burwell site linked in my previous post. (This should be an important lesson about relying on the internet for research materials. Or relying on me for your internet research.)

The other four posters in the series are solo shots of each Supersucker.

See what Santa (ckw) brings you if you're good?

Or at least good compared to "The Evil Kings of Rock and Roll."

You have to set the bar high, you know.

Them what gots, keeps.

In order to recover from last Friday's show at Mickey's with Richard Bacchus and The Mad Juanas (I'm still trying to get you cats to all wear matching suits, a boy can dream, right?) I went out to Fire Island ("Isn't it really gay there?... Yeah, you probably shouldn't go.")
To recover from the Island, I finally hung my Christmas present from SlipofaGirl: A set of 5 coordinated Supersuckers Posters from Guy Burwell. That's one of his to the right from The Shame of Rock and Roll. Don't bother looking for the Supersuckers ones she gave me,I couldn't find them.

And the picture I took with my phone came out crappy.

If you want to see the 11 x 17 poster frames I used, go here.

If you want to see the posters, call early (well, not early.)
And bring a bottle.
