Wow! The Cap’n agreed
to go to a show with me! This hasn’t happened well since the Stooges
a few weeks ago but before that it was Quintron last summer!
We had a kind friend
Xtal volunteer to watch the kiddies and were off to Capitol Hill,
The cap’ns first drinking stint on the hill since, well ever!
We found parking close
to the Comet and I took him into bliss down under the pavement to
Belgian French fry hut! Yes The Cap’n is a complete sucker for fried
potatoes and I knew that if I filled him with these delights I was
going to get a piece of ass for sure!
A few dingy dives
later and it was time to get back to the Comet to see one of my
favorite bands! Glass Candy!
Love Machine (Trashies
Max’s new music project), kick started the evening with in your face
shouting and rhythms. A spectacular Dead Moon cover done with
keyboards and complete new wave fever!
And then, and then I
was in for such a treat with this boy I have seen around town Brad!
He has a new two –piece called “I’m a Gun”! Really great heavy,
noisy and live wire! Proof that Miss O still has punk rock in her
soul and rock’n’stole in her boots!
I made Mama Casserole
a dolly for her upcoming birthday attached to 45’.
Ida No and Johnny
Jewel arrived right at the knick of time! I gave Ida her dolly I
made of her in a cute lil box and the Glass Candy’s I had toted with
me since California 2 years ago! I had been saving them for our next
exchange and it had been awhile! Ida said she remembers my voice (is
that good or bad?).
Those two electronic
machines set up and blasted us with their disco-sequin, new wave
pleasure! Ida’s voice has always brought sheer hope to my inners, I
feel so calm when I hear her voice! Johnny is a fir sure babe
If you go get a
dictionary and look up “rock-n-roll stud” there is a photo of Johnny
Jewel next to it!
Neil and Xtina rolled
back to Ballard with us and it was time for snoozes!
