“Terrible predatory forces are eating away at the country. The corporatists, militarists and political mandarins that serve them are the enemy. It is not our job to make them more appealing, but to destroy them. There are amongst us genuine freedom fighters of all ethnicities and backgrounds whose integrity does not permit them to serve the system of inverted totalitarianism that has destroyed our democracy, impoverished the nation and perpetuated endless wars. Diversity when it serves the oppressed is an asset, but a con when it serves the oppressors.” (-Chris Hedges)

“Blaming our problems on socialism when we live in the most capitalist country on earth is lunacy. Every one of our presidents has been a capitalist. Both parties who rule over us are capitalist. A socialist has never even been elected to Congress (Bernie & AOC aren’t socialists).” (-Ryan Knight)

“Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). Russia hacked the 2016 election to elect Trump. China spied on the US using a hot air balloon the size of four buses. The US war machine is built on lies, lies, and more lies.” (-Danny Haiphong)

“Our problem, folks, is corporate socialism, not socialism.” (-Dr. Jill Stein)

Zelensky couldn’t make it, so “Dr” Jill Biden got the call to promote another regime change operation against a country sanctioned and continually attacked by the US. Neocon theatrics like these are now mandatory at US awards ceremonies.” (-Max Blumenthal)

Swedish guitar virtuoso Steveie Klasson was one of those rare individuals who was just Born To Rock. He picked up the guitar as a kid and by the time he his his teens he was already performing in punk bands Neon Leon, Friday’s Angels and Linus & The Loosers and by the time he was seventeen or eighteen he had been discovered and befriended by the late great Johnny Thunders who kept Stevie in his band THE ODDBALLS until his tragic demise in 91 after which time Klasson relocated to the UK to collaborate with the badass legend, Patti Palladin. Since then, he has variously collaborated with Syl Sylvain, Glen Matlock, Darrel Bath, members of the  Hellacopters, Flamin’ Groovies, Cardigans, Diamond Dogs, and Hanoi Rocks. I used to see him play around NYC with the Oddballs in my late teens and early twenties and he always reminded me of JT’s little brother, had that same impeccable stylishness and coolness, still does, all these years later. One cool cat who never gets enough credit is the glammy blues cowboy STEVIE KLASSON! He’s seen it all, done it all, experienced woe and grief and loss and heartbreak, and still carries himself like a suave and dashing dandified Bo Diddley Meets Doc Holiday, a gentleman gangster of the old West! ALL HAIL STEVIE KLASSON!!!!

Cold mornings in Neverland, I move my chair to the sunniest parcel of the yard and listen to the birds, still thinkin’ about all my faroff family and friends who’ve been knocked like billiard balls to different parts of the world. I talked to some of my old homies on the phone-we’re all kinda crazy and in perpetual chaos or crisis, everybody who’s at the bottom of the capitalist culture knows we’re being gaslit and abused by the powers that be, with non stop psy ops and propaganda, and pro war bullshit, and excuses for billionaire greed, and fake as fuck politicians who never tell the truth about what’s really happening but instead just blame “the others”. People who are cold and broke and worried tend to fuck up or quarrel, suffer from intense helpless depressions, or just get psychologically burdened by all the lies and lying and top down media division programs, it makes us all a little meaner than we maybe need to be, especially with each other. it’s sad to behold. None of us can really even help each other anymore cause we all gotta hunker down and stay our post, and protect our loved ones and what little stability and shelter we can still grasp onto. Aint no surplus to share much, like in the olden times when we had a big bandhouse and twenty people chippin’ in to buy P.A.’s or band vans, or pizza and libations. Media makes people in the dwindling middle class stay focused on the lifestyles of the rich and famous, and pretend like they can join them and become millionaires too, if they keep the trains running on time, avoid the riffraff cooties, and repeat “the current thing” obediently enough, on social media. I’m gratified I aint the only one talkin’ about people like Springsteen and the Squad selling out the workers and the underclasses. I don’t know what we can do about any of it, anymore, it’s a helpless feeling when the Big 5 Vanguard/Blackrock/Gates weaponsmakers and pig-pharma owned media push their bogus advertising lies so hard our fellows can only parrot the dumb commercials about Chinese balloons or Chinese Bats or how the proxy war was unprovoked, and how “we” gotta send more billions to nazis in the Ukraine, rather than provide for any of the people suffering at the bottom of this ghetto nation or “dying suddenly” from mysterious causes no one can explain. Yesterday, we worked in the yard and fixed stuff and listened to some old George Michael and ended up having a bonfire under a full moon and all that felt good. Other days, the pressures of poverty, bills, superinflation, the war economy and family medical problems, make it hard to have harmony cause everybody’s under pressure, just like in that old Queen and David Bowie song, “it’s the terror of knowing what this world is about”. I found one of my old Catolic school friends but neither one of us can really bring ourselves to talk on the phone cause we’d rather leave things as is, as they were, we don’t wanna foul up the holy memeories, or touch the butterfly’s wings, we both instinctively prefer to cherish the scrapbooks of the log gone past and don’t wanna mess up the good old flame. Several of our friends from the good old days have dropped dead, now we’re all just coping with the disintegrating infratstructure around us, the nonstop threat of eviction, crime in all our cities, and disntegrating society, goin’ to work, doing our best to care for loved ones, with what limited resources we can still access, but shitlibs don’t understand how the bureacracy is not really there to benefit us, it’s all a slippery slope and more tricks of the rich. Somebody used to say the rich get richer and the poor get drunk, nowadays, the poor people can’t even afford much beer. I’m glad to see some old rocknroll bands like Circus Of Power and Faster Pussycat  still playing at the last few metal bars scattered across the land and bringing those old songs to the people, even if the big towns are less than welcoming to us poor people, at least some middle class folks can still get together in the cities and remember the golden years when everything still seemed possible, and hear thaose good old songs about freedom and fun . I love that summa those guys still know how to bring a room of people together for a celebration of life, like the nice lady at the local grocery cash register told us yesterday, we might as well have fun while we can, seize every last moment of joy and communion, cause it’s all too brief and harboring too much unforgiveness and anger just kills us off early. Joe Strummer really had some stuff figured out towards the end of his life. I still wish more people could have heard songs like “Boogie With Your Children” and “Nitcomb” and “Johnny Appleseed”. Old ideas that need to be kept alive around the fire and passed down to whoever survives this bullshit Klaus Scwab depopulation, purge, culling of the herd.

Max Blumenthal has been talking about Branch Covidians for a long time-the cloistered haves who are so one message psychically scarred and adversely affected by nonstop media blitz that they still want babies to wear masks and society to remain in permenent lockdown because they only need shop Amazon or Grub-Hub. We know people who still have their Wal Mart shopping done by employees and delivered to their car so they don’t have to risk the death plague by setting foot in the store. They live in big gated compounds and only see employees and consume corporate media all night long so they trust Dr. Jill Biden and Dr. Fauchi and think every other scientist or doctor who is not actively pushing more boosters for children, shutdowns of mom n pops, and billions for endless war nazi regimes must be working for Russia, China, or Trump. I got neighbors in the desert who live in trailers surrounded by cameras and electronic gates. Only place I’ve ever seen a trailer with cameras and electric gates. The country is getting weirder. I know people who consume rightwing media who keep complaining to me about the immigrants and Chinese “threat” just like the shitlib pink hats, who keep bleating on and on and on about the Capital Hill election protests. Not my problem, not my cause, I BELIEVE IN FREEDOM OF SPEECH & THE RIGHT TO ASSEMBLE. I DO NOT believe that these fucking puppet politicians are goddesses from Mt. Olympus or should be worshipped as such. They all suck so bad. What phonies, such traitors.


When I was avoiding the truancy officers while waiting to turn eighteen in a school to prison pipeline, fuckedup and corrupt, fascistic patriotic, tankplant town, I lived in a cold garage in an attic crawlspace over my friend Bryan B’s mom nd brother’s sports cars, we had a Coalman’s stove we’d run sometimes, but I get dizzy just remembering the fumes and how idiotic it was to try to wram ourselves with that thing in a confined space, you do a lotta dumbass risky shit when you’re a kid and if you survive all that, I guess you’re lucky. We had some heavy metal girlfriends who’d get rides to come visit us up there. My stoner metal skateboard crew and detention hall roommate Beefy (RIP) might bring over some dirtweed which was just ridiculously outlawed back then-total reefer madness drug scare bullshittery. Girls would bring us 12 packs of Budweiser and it felt like the greatest thing in the world. Back then we were all still into Def Leppard and Ratt and Cinderella, but were about to graduate into Dogs D’Amour and Circus Of Power and Junkyard and Mother Love Bone, right? . Keifer had a real specific kinda singing voice, you might say an acquired taste, but I’ve known festivals fulla people who actually love that high pitched screechy shit. I can not sit through a whole album’s worth of screeching very often, but I can do four or five songs worth in a sentimental mood. Back when I was sixteen or seventeen, I thought he dressed Goth Like Me, and was sortof a dumbed down smalltown Steven Tyler, so I was all aboard and never stopped really loving “Gypsy Road”. His band brokeup a long time ago and Jeff LeBar died. Kindof a sad story. Anyways, I’m glad that guy’s still around doing his thing! (RIP) Jeff LeBar

The Untold Truth About Jeff LaBar’s Death – YouTube


When I was in my twenties, I had an open all night, non stop party, communal crash pad, bandhouse and performance venue where most of the time there was like fifteen cars and three or four motorcycles parked out front-we had cookouts, bar b q’s, a motorcade to all our dodgy shows, weekend visitors who’d bring us groceries/booze/new music, it was so much fun but I foolishly believed all that fleetingly fabulous bedazzling magic was gonna last forever. All those dudes who used to drive me ten hours to see all the big city rockshows? Bobby, Mitch, Joey, Keith B.,…Most of them are dead now and my little black heart just can’t stop cryin’ over ’em. Hug your babies, call your grandmother, forgive ’em all for they know not wht they do, do it while you can. All those sleazy metal bands soundtracked all our best times in our young lives and I feel particularly attached to Circus Of Power, who’d kinda taken a couple of under their wings and always brought us backstage and encouraged our greasy kid hairspray punk bands. Special Thanks to Alex, Gary, and Ricky. We all liked LA Guns too, but I think we kinda lost interest and enthusaism when Mick Cripps split and those other guys did all the bitchy lawsuits and stupid feuds for decades and attacked the fans who were confused about when Phil and Tracii were getting along and when they were hating on the rest of the old band, all that shit over the years, it was hard to really stay connected to them-Tracii Guns did that Brides Of Destruction band and then all that shit with the TV show people, Phil Got bitchier and went though 500 different bandmates who all left in bitter acrimony, then they got Paul Mars Black back in the band with Tracii for a minute, right? Then the other guys-Riley and Nickles had their version. I tried to checkout their new song “You Betray” this morning but it ws just too heavy for me I guess. Faster Pussycat still entertain me. I like Taime and Danny and those other guys are putting a lot of energy into the show, even if I don’t care if I ever know their names cause I miss Greg and Brent, right? I bet you do, too. (RIP) Ryan Maher and Zowie Ackerman and Mark Michaels. I still have not been able to get a copy of that “Nothin’ But A Good Time” book about Eighties Heavy Metal in L.A., but you know I want it!

Tom Keifer “The Way Life Goes”

TomKeiferI’ve always liked CINDERELLA since their first album “Night Songs”. Their videos were on TV rock shows in Europe, but I’ve never seen them until last year in the US at the Monsters Of Rock Cruise where I finally got to see them twice! Well, better make-up for all that time since they were not the easiest band to see in France in the 80s/90s!
The bluesy/STONES roots of the band always made them stand out to me, and their leader Tom Keifer now offers us a debut solo album in which he can focus more on these musical influences. Opening with hard-hitting song “Solid Ground”, it’s hard to think this could be a bad album! Slide guitars, gospel backing vocals, and catchy melodies always work well together. Songs like “It’s Not Enough”, “Cold Day In Hell” or “Mood Elevator” can only confirm this. Fans of powerful 70s groovy songs will love “Fool’s Paradise” and “Ain’t That a Bitch” while modern hard rock lovers will be seduced by “Welcome To My Mind”, and things get even more epic in “The Way Life Goes” and its early AEROSMITH groove and structure!
It’s not always easy to keep the average rock’n’roll listener’s attention when things get quieter with ballads, but here, songs like “Thick and Thin”, “The Flower Song”, “You Showed Me” (and it’s BEATLES feel) or “Ask Me Yesterday” never get boring or cheesy. Good point!
Tom knows that an album has to end on a great note, that’s why the Brown Sugar taste of “Babylon” and its wild saxophone solo won’t leave your mind. This is very good, but what else could you expect from the man? /Laurent C.
