“Stealing money from tax payers to make the greedy weapons industry richer and the United States more unstable and less safe. This money belongs serving the needs of the people not destroying the planet. #WarIsNotGreen The #Costofwar is killing all of us.” (-Jodie Evans)

“This ridiculous Pentagon budget passing proves again that the ruling class does not have the same interests as the people. Their goal is to enrich themselves and their friends at Lockheed Martin and Raytheon at the expense of the people. 550,000+ unhoused people in the U.S. 1 in 10 adults in “significant” medical debt $195 billion in medical debt held by individuals 16.9 % child poverty rate and our members of Congress vote to send our money to the military? We deserve so much better than this. While constituents live paycheck to paycheck and drown in debt, Congress will award the Pentagon $858 billion, over half of which will go to private companies who profit from the war economy. Now, as the US heads towards a full-scale war with Russia and seeks another with China, it’s important we remember: 

War will not solve our problems nor our conflicts. It destroys communities, ecosystems, and societies for generations. Invest in the people, not in war!” (-CODE PINK)

SIOUXSIE & THE BANSHEES

Nowadays they’ve been hiding the Real Stuff for so long and elevating Fake Garbage, that almost anytime somebody says something about goth, punk, performace art, dance music, style, nightclub subcultures, glamous, originality, any of it, shit media immediately references awful shite like Miley Cyrus, Katie Perry, Gaga, Pink, or McDonna. People seem to have forgotten how important and ubiquitous Siouxsie was in my generation, she was everywhere, all my friends had her t shirts, posters, albums, cassettes, and postcards on the fridge, she was probably every bit as big as Depeche Mode, The Cure, or the Smiths, the cruddy Sunday night faux niteclub we hung out at in Indiana played something by her probably every fifth song. Remember all those 12 inch dance remix singles? So yeah she’s been a recluse for quite some time now and can you really blame her? Everything sucks so much ass in this modern Musk-Bezos-Gates world, who would even wanna play for those dumbass, festival goin’ brainwashed motherfuckers? I guess if “working class symapthizer” Springsteen can charge five grand a ticket to hear his old man Orbison impressions and hard luck tales about growing up poor in the fifties some more, she deserves to make some money after all that fearlessly provocative trailblazing she did that everybody else imitated. So yeah her Glorious Return is exciting news for all us basement dwellers and night time people. I hope she makes new music with the Banshees.

PETER MURPHY

Ya know that corporate magaiznes like Rolling Stone and Spin are weapons now, just full of falsehood fabrications and manufactured culture, assemblyline rich people bullshit. Those hack festival goers are paid big bucks to talk about Kanye and Elon Musk and fucking all those absolutely banal and inspid monarch programmed Dizney slut puppets all day, while ignoring the Great and authentic artists who are still fully alive and still making crucial works of heavy genius and long lasting resonance. Like Peter Murphy, he’s still so vital even if you don’t see him on 120 Minutes, or in the twenty dollar fucking glossy magazines anymore. His works are always filled with vibrant emotion and contemplative prose, and onstage he still rocks like a real live wire, even with the beard. You just have to dig a little bit deeper to look for the real rocknrollers. He’s the Lion of the gothic tradition, as important to some of us as Bowie or Iggy, artistically way above most of the shit we see getting hyped nowadays. The twisted propaganda misinfotainment industry that runs all the media for the One Percent Davos billionaires agendas will have you believe like HARRY STYLES is the new Bowie, I mean he aint even the new David Cassidy, ya know? The so called mainstream has never sucked so bad, it’s all garbage, lies, and glorifying cannibalism, but people with Amazon ready income streams continue cheerfully consuming the corporate bullshit like it’s real and normal and not all fake headlines about how China protests are those sweat shop working people asking to be even more enslaved by capitalist shareholders-that aint what’s happening-those protests are the people saying they refuse to submit to the Fauchi clampdowns and mandates and big pharma protocols, this same EXACT phrama sponsored Big Media .promoted those same protocols and mandates non stop for years in the land of the gullible and home of the big tech panopticon fascists. If you wanna get wise to what’s really happening I suggest you read Whitney Webb and Max Blumenthal regularly. Gray Zone and Unlimited Hangout. Rob Sheffield is paid big money to tell you Britney Spears and Kanye West are good but I’ll still be here redirecting you towards credible indie media sources and Real Singers like Peter Murphy as long as I’m around. I turn 53 tomorrow. Hope I don’t “die suddenly”, like so many of my fifty something friends nobody wants to talk about.

“Please don’t ever claim that Bernie is a radical. Bruce Dixon got it right he is nothing more than a sheepdog for democrats along with the squad.” (-Ajamu Baraka)

“He’s just a water boy to a pro-wall st. anti-worker, pro-war party. What a disappointment.” (-Jimmy Dore)

“Saying a US politician is bad on foreign policy but good on domestic policy is like saying a serial killer was nice to his family. It’s like, okay, who gives a fuck? They’re mass murderers and you should hate them.” (-Caitlin Johnstone)

“The biggest gangster in the world is the US government. The biggest scammer in the world is the US economy. The biggest liar in the world is the US mainstream media.” (-Danny Haiphong)

“Over 55% of the union members rejected the contract that denied them paid sick leave. The Squad voted yes on that very contract. That makes the Squad strike breakers. Workers can’t rely on Democrats. We only win if we build fighting movements, including militant strike actions.” (-Sonja Ponath)

“”This is just stunningly dishonest…Hundreds of thousands of workers who understand what has happened are calling out the betrayal of the squad & the Dem Party & pres Biden, you have commentators…saying that if you agree then you are actually sneering at workers..” (-Brihana Joy Gray)

“That’s why it’s important to pay attention to narratives — who adopts them, how they are reshaped & how “influencers” use them to destroy movements from the inside.

The anti-war movement died when it embraced Obama. The same thing happened to the remnants of Occupy with Sanders.” (-Primo Radical)

“Shitlibs who screamed Elon was “fascist” cuz he wouldn’t ban people they hate R now saying he’s fascist for banning people they like. Weird how they were ok banning the leading doctors & scientists in their field 4 challenging status quo on Covid but hack journos need protection” (-Jimmy Dore)

“Elon Musk using his control of Twitter to enact petty personal vendettas is a good illustration of why the rich shouldn’t run things.FYI if you think Bill Gates, George Soros or Pierre Omidyar are any better than Elon Musk it’s because you’re a dopey shitlib. Elon Musk could live stream himself giving the FBI director a deep throat blowjob to completion, stand up, wipe his chin, look right in the camera and say “I gave him a blowjob because I love the deep state so much,” and Musk simps would still say he’s fighting the deep state. It says so much about the power of the propaganda machine of the US-centralized empire that people not only believe the Official Lines, and they not only parrot the Official Lines, but they actively condemn anyone who calls the Official Lines into question.” (~ Caitlin Johnstone)

Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari says weapons flowing into Ukraine are showing up now in the Lake Chad region 

In other words, US military aid – and American tax dollars – are benefitting warlords from Azov to Boko Haram” (-Max Blumenthal)

“”Investigators noted that the Army’s database claimed that service officials reviewed facilities in the years 0012, 1776, 2201 and 3013.” …So the Pentagon claims to have inspected buildings they can’t find, filled with weapons they’ve lost, in years that haven’t happened yet. The Pentagon LITERALLY loses buildings, planes, guns, & missiles. Don’t ask how one loses a building, but they somehow manage it. But it gets worse. Sometimes they don’t even know what YEAR they’re in. “16,000 records that might reveal either the source or the destination of some of that [trillions] had been ‘removed’.” So if this were not a crime, then why cover up the paper trail? In this latest audit failure – “What they found were several new weaknesses in how DOD accounted for its assets, [including] 2.9 million personnel; equipment &weapons including 19,700 aircraft… & physical items including buildings, roads & fences on 4,860 sites worldwide.” To put $21 Trillion into perspective, if you earned $100,000 every year (after taxes) for 70 years, you’d have to live that same life 3 MILLION times to get to 21 Trillion. Forbes & The Nation were some of the few outlets to cover the scandal & they made it clear it was not just discrepancies. “According to gov records & interviews with DoD officials, congressional sources, & independent experts” this was & is fraud. The Pentagon avoided federally mandated audits for 25 years, but that didn’t stop the truth from coming out that there had been over $21 TRILLION of unaccounted-for financial adjustments over 17 years. If you ran a market, or a shoe store, or a daycare & you couldn’t account for HALF your inventory, you’d quickly be arrested. Yet the Pentagon does just that & it’s met with a yawn by the ruling elite & the media. But this is worse than just negligence.” (-Lee Camp)

“18 months later the Peruvian Oligarchy drove Pedro Castillo into prison, preventing him from entering the Mexican Embassy for asylum. But just like they never expected Castillo to become President they also never expected thousands of people on the streets demanding his freedom! Thousands of people keep flowing into Lima to protest the overthrow of Pedro Castillo. The people of Peru insist on overturning the 1993 constitution written in blood by the Fujimori Regime and that Castillo hoped to replace through a constituent assembly. The situation in Peru is intensifying after the coup against Pedro Castillo. Protests & roadblocks continue to grow across the country & in the capital Lima. These are already having effect. Dina Boluarte, head of the coup govt, has even slipped having to call for early elections. Today is the 7th day of protests in Peru. There are now major roadblocks across Peru. The scale of the protests continue to grow despite 7 people, mostly underage, being killed by police. The coup govt. greatly underestimated that people would fight back & defend Castillo.” (-Manolo De Los Santos on CIA coup in Peru)

LONE MEMBER OF FRAUD SQUAD WHO STANDS WITH WORKERS AGAINST FATCAT TYCOON BOSSES, IS SAD. THEY JUST ROTATE, IT’S A SHAM, A PUPPET SHOW, A PIG CLUB BUT YOU WANT IN IT.

Pig-media, schools, and secondhand, NFL, vicarious, chickenhawk, flagwaving keeps Murkkkans drunk on their own passivity, complicity, filth and slovenly sloth, torture camps, CEO planes destroying the atmosphere, crass consumption and mass murder, all of ’em seem to be forever identifying with military family members service, or Thanking Obama, some more, for knowing Beyonce and walking behind Chelle or whatever, cause Gender and “LADIES FIRST!” keeps it all so classy, that p.c. fauxwoke cancel cult is all so powerful now, just a non stop juggernaut of nuttines and lies and transparent obedience signaling that almost every last fucking member of my former schoolmates, old bands and former creative arts gang have succombed to. It is terrifying how quickly they’ve all regressed, defaulted, forgotten, missed the meeting, been reindoctrinated back into the Bush/Cheney/Obama/Toby Keith patriotism world from which they came. This is paricularly appalling coming from ex punks and mean former liberals who we now refer to mostly as Gotmines or Shitlibs. You know the people who used to have all the Save The Whales signage and saw U2 concerts and liked Will Smith and Chelle Obama to prove how they were “Not racist”TM, and cried during those commercials for pets with that Sarah McLaughlin angels song, or “Everybody Hurts” by REM. These same folks now are in lockstep with anything Bill Gates, Gropey Joe, or Klaus Schwab order of them. It is truly some “THEY LIVE!” or “Twilight Zone” or “V For Vendetta” or “Matrix” like shit. Beyond Orwellian, just crazy. I sent some antiwar shit to a former companion and they wrote me back some crazy belligerent pro war gung ho bootcamp bullshit about how that’s just how it is now, Bitcoin and Bezos and obeying the transhumanist Harari twerp for science and war is good. I can’t fuckin’ believe how malleable everyone has become. No one in the Squad or Sanders fight for any real leftist value anymore, ever, at all. Nothing-they are all full on Hillary/Pelosi/Reagan/Cheneys!  Anti Trump tweets mean nothing to those of us at the bottom of your okey dokey, hokey pokey Ten Thousand Dollar Pyramid Scheme, the propertarians and Airbandb owners just wanna get back to sports and beer and online shopping. WTF? I know I stand alone here, but I’m still all like, power to the people for real, not just as some podcast advertisement. Revolution. Rocknroll. ALL POWER TO THE PEOPLE. Now more than ever. They all pretend hated Reagan back in their long forgotten adolescence or college slumming phases but Obama and DOUBLE DOWN DOCTOR DOCTOR JILL BIDEN made ’em all just love alla Reagan’s policies. They pledge alliegence to The Man. Or Wokey Whoa-Man. Whatever, man. Meanwhile the Real Anti War Community is spied on, hassled, harrassed, disrupted, censored, slandered and demonetized. Everybody is getting the Cointelpro treatment while they yuppies holding their I-phones in one hand and channel changer in the other just keep repeating how we should all just be more obedient to the rich people above us, meaning themselves, of course. Everybody from Chris Hedges to Abby Martin. Medea Benjamin and Ray McGovern are censored and shadowbanned. Anti-imperialist and all pro freedom voices have been purged by the spooks from both legacy media and repleced with actual spies, or cenosred by the billionaire techlords on social media, but the Hillarybot Squad worshippers don’t see a danger with Assange and Hale being lockedup or Hastings  and Rich and Wellstone and Dr. David Kelly dying mysteriously. Just okeydokey whatever Hillary wants. And her Powwow Chow Pocahontos Pal and fellow eager beaver Republikkkan Gal Senator Millionaire Liz Warren. I can’t believe middle class people look to Condoleeza Rice, Hillary or Pelosi for advice about anything-they are all known crooks, far rightwing liars and war criminals. Lyn Cheney’s the devil’s daughter-don’t tell me nothing about Ivanka if you like Lyn Cheney. Bernie’s a big sellout coward and a disappointment, but I highly doubt he’s a sexist, but the Gender divide is all these undercover Republikkan, fake as fuck, pro war, Bloomberg Wall Street Dems have to run on, madeup divisions, so they continue to smear Sanders, and he pitifully continues to capitualte to the deep state oligarchy. So sad. Sanders was the only member of congress who refused to stand and applaud their CIA puppet they tried to install in Venezeula-all the rest of these jetset Pelosis and Met Gala starlets are all for coups of socialist democracies, that is NOT DEMOCRATIC by any actual definition-these hacks and mannakins and empty suits won’t even fight for sick days or Julian Assange. You brunchers who enable them kinda suck. Bill Gates is not your special sweater science cuddlybear.

DREAM ACADEMY

When you were young did you ever love somebody? I remember buying the 12 inch single and a silver book of Hendriz poetry when I was 14-ish from It’s Only Rocknroll on 8th Street, walkin’ ’round in the snow with the Walkman on, my main two cassettes that year were the Cult and Thompson Twins. I was in love with a girl and this music made me think of her, but I had to leave that smalltown where she lived and fled to NYC where a couple of older broads had taken me in. It’s funny how music and memories swirl together so deeply that even a certain time of year or temperature drop can bring all that stuff straight back to life.

It used to drive my hardcore punk and dude-metal Scorpions bros crazy that I loved this band. My Randy Rhoades shredder, mulleted headbanger guitar hero, Dekan used to dismissively call me, “The Flower Power Popster”. I still love the Dream Academy. “This is dedicated to the one I love…”

“When you were young

Did you ever fall down
Graze your knee
And want to run to someone
‘Cause now that you’re older
I’ve been falling down

I want to run to someone
But there’s nobody around…”

It was right around that same time I discovered “Hunky Dory”, Inxs, the Fleshtones via the MTV IRS CUTTING EDGE HAPPY HOUR, Lords Of The New Church, Divinyls, Billy Idol and the Cult. I stupidly went back to that loathsome hellhole of a town but after what I learned and experienced in Lower Manhattan, I was never the same again and I started fighting back, believing in myself, kicking against the pricks.

POSITIVELY YEAH YEAH YEAH MOTHERFUCKERS

These rowdy punk soul sixties influenced R&B all night motherfuckers along with Animal House/Blues Brothers and Van Halen and the Time, kinda taught us boisterous black sheep how to really get down. We were from that kinda tradition rather than the mopey grunge buzzkillers that bought up all the stages who followed us. Peter Zaremba was like a garage punk James Brown back in the day, they STILL rock like fuck!

SO TRUE ABOUT STUART ADAMSON BEING THE BEST

I will admit, as much of a radical rabble rouser as I’m accused of being, sometimes, summa the Great Old Bands can be a little too one note Billy Bragg preachy for me. I like a whole symphony of ideas, ya know what I’m sayin’? Like what made the Stones, and the Clash and even Hanoi Rocks so great was their diversity-they could play tear in your beer old truckstop country, or ska, or disco, or angry protest music, or freaky psychedelic, or speed warped highway songs and still have that continuity, their own sound, that identifiable stamp as a band, so yeah, summa the big sky bands from the eighties that U2 kinda did a more watered down and commercialized version of could get a little bit too single mindedly focused on some miner’s strike or something-the war in the Falklands, but if all Stuart ever wrote was “Big Country”, he’d still be among the greats in my book. The Skids were also anthemic. Mike Peters credits Stuart for being his a-ha lightning bolt moment, immediate predecessor. That’s a pretty bold thing to admit. In Murkkka, people don’t even own up to having influences-they’re all so W Bush unapologetic,and dummy sports popular vote competitive, ALL THE CLOWNISH PLAY ACTORS LIKE TO STRUT AROUND LIKE THEY ARE BO DIDDLEY ORIGINATORS NOT COPYCAT COME LATELYS SPENDING THE INHERITANCE.Staurt Adamson, now that guy was a pathfinder, a trailblazer, a sing from his heart guy. I was already bored with the xerox-rock, way back in the early nineties with all those Orange County bands in “Maximum Rocknroll” just unimaginatively regurgitating dumbed down, suburbanized, mama money, allowance punk, silver visor from Spencer Gifts in the mall versions of  the Clash or Ramones til doomsday, which, in my opinion, was when dorks like Robbie Thomas and Dave Grohl came on the scene. Doomsday. Turned everything into a class clown joke. The WEF are depopulating the third world and want to microchip enslave whoever survives their dumb wars. Schwab was Kissinger’s protegee but even more entitled and empowered. You should probably do the opposite of whatever he tells you to do. He is  not the emperor. Or at least he shouldn’t be. Fight the NWO.

RICK SPRINGFIELD

In my early twenties I got his greatest hits and realized what a formidable songwriter the guy was. When I first got out of detention hall, I had hoped to rekindle a little love I’d had with a beautiful girl a couple years before but she’d sadly moved on. His song, “State Of The Heart” was a 45 I listened to over and over again while me and Tom and Joey and Fred drank many 12 packs, until my older pal, Dan Yorksie who was running a chop shop bicycle operation outta my basement broke it against the cement wall and got me to set fire to the Polaroid I took of that girl on the first night we met. It only burned even more permenently into my memory. It felt exactly like “Pretty In Pink” as I carried her memory in my heart for years. She went with some trendy soccer star who had the nice clothes, the nice smile, the car, blue eyes, popular. I was Duckie, he was Blaine. Now I’m Harry Dean without a fuckin’ pack of smokes.

A FAVE BAND ON FAVE TV SHOW:

I don’t want some halfassed My Chemical Romance Hot Topic Emo Version and I’ve lost so much of my once proud shag that I just don’t think I have enough left to really adequately achieve the old fashioned Aqua Netted Johnny Thunders-Alarm-Nikki Sixx-Steve Stevens oversized, razorcut jetboy mane I had when Mickey Mac sent a black limousine to retrieve me and my scuzzy, mohawked old guitar player for our high school graduation, well her graduation anyways-they chased me outta that school years prior. I think I got kicked outta six schools and quit two or three, school was not for me. . I sat in between a girl named Regina, whose uncle had kicked me out of the downtown school, she was all cute and Bambi eyed in a white Mary Ann dress and then, there She appeared in a burst of blinding white light–that one true innocent teenage love of mine who attended a Catholic school that the volleyball coach had me expelled from for having No Doze caffeine pills and for wasting their expensive glittery Thunderbirds stickers you were supposed to sell to some rich relative for $500 by just sticking mine on my school desk and locker, she had shown up also, in all her brightly beaming Brigitte Bardot black glasses splendor, but not for me, she had only shown up to give a graduation card to the popular kid she ditched me for while I was in detention hall on my way back to her, so that was honestly a bit of a jab to the deslusional wishful thinking little boy heart. She went her way that day but I got to see her smile. Whoa he was something else back then. I mighta mentioned her in a song. 

That night, while I was in her Poison postered bedroom makin’ my moves on the also exquisitely beautiful Mickey Mac, she had just been dating Bobby Doll, so that was mostly what she wanted to talk about: Poison. Or her gigantic dogs. Meanwhile, her mom was getting my surly guitarist wasted with big bottles in the kitchen and her mom’s dubious boyfriend was asking him if he was up for a gas station robbery or something like that. I guess he saw the nosering and combat boots and black leather jacket and ripped jeans and Max’s Kansas City or GBH t shirt and assumed my guy was an armed robber, rather than a future academic glass artisan. My life’s been a tragiccomedy in that way. Anyhow, yeah, like I was telling my comrade Neen, the Alarm were the prototype of bighaired glammy bandido, desert rebel, Zapatista outlaw gang that first inspired me to recruit my own black flag drunken pirate army. It was pre internet, so we did not know how many other bands were already doing all the same shit as us, in the grebo movement over in the UK, so we thought we were way cooler and more edgy and innovative than we actually were, but for 1986 in a smallish conservative tankplant town, a regular hotspot on the crack highway in between Dayton and Toledo and Detroit, we were radical as all fuck, there. Hell In Fishnets & Blue Eyeshadow! The local evangelical tv station even did a whole anti rock epidode and brought in an outta state PMRC crusader to warn all my other girlfriend’s mothers about the dangers of Aqua Net and eyeliner and all the strange goings-on at that chipped yellow painted, rain faded, long neglected farmhouse on the outskirts of town across from the old K Mart. “They had Eastern tapestries and Christmas lights all year round! Motorcycles in the yard and a Super Nova spraypainted green! A pale and scrawny pasty guy in scarves! Many booze bottles on the old piano! ” Just greasy kids really, drinking beer, playing covers. Wearing all the things that nobody wears.You know that Spencer P. Jones song, “You’ve Peaked”? Some peopel say I peaked early, I say I’m ready for primetime.

DID I EVER TELL YA ABOUT THAT TIME I WAS HUDDLED IN THE COLD SLEET AT THE BACKSTAGE DOOR IN DETROIT AT A BRITNEY FOX SHOW JUST TRYING TO GET IN TO LOOK FOR MY OLDER NOIR LEATHER BLONDE BOMBSHELL MAKEUP ARTIST GIRLFRIEND & THOSE FOUR BEWIGGED CINDERELLA WANNABES GOT OFF THE BUS & WALKED RIGHT BY ME LIKE THEY NEVER HEARD “JUKEBOX HERO”? 

I can really enjoy repeat listens to “GYPSY ROAD” in a certain mood, at least partially because it brings back so many good memories of all night laughing with my famous celebrity DJ/radio programmer friend way back before he started making the big bucks, when he still lived in a dumpy get high trailer with a metalhead guitarist and a couple of big stinky dogs named Glenn and KK, but you know more than a few Cinderella songs in a row kinda can grate on my nerves, I like ’em, don’t get me wrong, but only for about maybe four songs tops then I need a break from all the screeching. I always kinda thought Britney Fox were like Cinderella wannabes. Every band who ever made it to “Headbanger’s Ball” is still trying to milk the old brandname and fractured off into feuding factions, it’s kinda sad really-like with that whole stupidly tedious L.A. Guns debacle. Or Gene Loves Jezebel. Which one does mom like best? I only feel bad for people who got rippedoff like Chris Holmes in WASP. Britney Fox are more Spinal Tap than even like, Quiet Riot or Roxx Gang.

I LIKE SPIKE

Always preferred the Quireboys to the Black Crowes whose best song was a naked ripoff of Mother Love Bone’s “Crown Of Thorns”. “Sometimes Salvation” was good and that kool chick from the Rat, Kit was her name, her mom owned an Egyptian dress store on Newbury Street, Kit played “She Talks To Angels” to me all night long way back when we were friends. So I have a soft spot for that one, I was crazy about Kit who looked just like Virgian Madsen from that eighties new wave movie, “Modern Girls’, but really the Crowes mostly had super nice, enviably Brian Jonesy clothes. As soon as Johnny Colt split they kinda became Deadheads, and as a non potsmoker reefer jams and Zeppelin covers aint my scene at all. The Quireboys have always been an oustanding rocknroll band. As someone who hadda lotta different bandmates who sang my songs in a velvet newsboy cap without me figuring they can pass as both of us, my sympathy and solidarity is always gonna be with SPIKE, basically my generation’s finest velvet jacketed, ciagrette raspy, Rod Stewart storyteller. Love him to death.

“I don’t want to live in a make believe democracy where our lying corrupt Gov’t is telling social media companies what they can and cannot report and who they should and should not censor, no matter what the Party affiliation or personal beliefs.

I guess that makes me crazy. Putin isn’t trying to take over the world, the United States is trying to maintain their control of it. How has nobody noticed that our Gov’t only cares about democracy, sovereignty and human rights in countries that do not obey us?

Countries that serve a purpose for us can be a dictatorship, apartheid State, chop off their citizens heads, and committ genocides with a free pass. Until Americans escape the false reality we have been conditioned to believe since childhood that our country is a force for good, things in the world will get worse

The country that is most responsible for war, theft, lies, greed and suffering in the world is the United States. If our citizens cared about the truth, we’d look at what happened for the last 8 years before Russia went into Ukraine, but Americans will continue to believe this ridiculous narrative that Putin is just some crazy dictator doing this for no reason trying to take over the world.

Ajamu Baraka on Twitter: “I personally completely support this. Psy-ops are supposed to be illegal in the U.S. but legislation passed under the Obama administration on so-called disinformation provided the space for wholesale domestic propaganda operations in the U.S.” / Twitter

“Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize, and he had a kill list, started 5 more wars, and dropped more bombs than Bush Needless to say, the award has kind of lost its prestige. How many elections will you live through before you notice that we still end up screwed and the rich keep getting richer? We live in the reality created by the people that are exploiting us and creating worldwide chaos They own the media, the politicians, the Gov’t agencies and have no intentions of giving up their power They see their control slipping Sometimes the evil you fear is in your house. You’re allowed to type the name Seth Rich now? You don’t have to cross an ocean to find the people who are really interfering in our elections. If it exposes the people that I like, it is obviously untrue or unimportant If I don’t like who said it, they’re obviously lying If it is about people I hate it is definitely true So there is no need to research myself, because I have my team to confirm what we want to think. People get mad when I criticize Obama and I don’t care because the truth is that we got the same Presidency from him than we would have got from Mitt Romney. I’m 56 and I thought I voted for the first Black President, but now I realize that I’m still waiting. Dems use fear of what the GOP wants to do to the Black community, but if you pay attention, the things they told us to fear, they did to us themselves, as we celebrated their victory

Now if you want a fight for voting rights, they’re here as long as we’re voting for them. In spite of what the part of the Black community that is captured by the Democrats think, censorship is also a Black issue, because the second we step out of line from what the Establishment wants, we’ll be at the top of the list of people they want to shut up. I don’t focus on the Democrats because I like Republicans, I focus on them because they’ve been the ones suckering my community into voting for them for a half century, while delivering nothing for us.” (-Black In The Empire)

The reason you view your oppressors as your saviors is because billions of dollars are spent to warp your mind into believing that you are an imbecile who is incapable of taking care of yourself or knowing what is best for you.” (-Just. A. Thought on censored Twitters)

The problem with America is that we are nothing like what we think we are. We are a land of cowards. We do not have a democracy or republic. We barely even have a real government. We lock up the most prisoners in the world. We are subjected to 30,000+ laws made up by rich people. So many bootlickers on this app. Lol. What is wrong with some people?

The US is a fake “government” that does not care if you and your entire family die. Notice how when you are out you rarely see crime, even in big cities. The ruling capitalist class needs us to believe we are in extreme constant danger so they can hire more cops to protect THEM and their properties when Americans inevitably revolt.” (-Jory Michah)

“AOC and the Squad soften the longer they stay in the Democrats — betraying striking workers is the latest.” (-ruth Coppinger)

It is commentators like yourself who…whenever the Dem Party is w/in the cross fire of workers, justifiably, then those people are going to be protected. So when the fire was against AOC & jayapal, then suddenly AOC starts tweeting & you all start defending her.” (-Brihana Joy Gray)

Worker here. Just got done listening to the whole interview. Kshama and Bri are 100% spot on. You are so disconnected from the working class it’s not even funny.” (-Nate Spud talking to a typical corporate media soldout deceiver in the TYT mold, fake as fuck DNC elite bridge troll RG)

“There are two major grifts going on in US politics:

“I’ll gladly wait a day to get my “pop-tarts” if it means workers get paid sick leave. Also, commerce flows because of workers, not the CEOs or corrupt government officials who exploit them. This is propaganda. President Biden & Vice President Harris just sided with the railroad companies over rail workers who are fighting for paid sick leave. They are working to deliver results for Big Business, not working families.” (-Ryan Knight)

“So-called American “leftists” who have swallowed anti-Russia and anti-China propaganda are far more frustrating than the right.

At least the right is honest and direct. American “leftists” cover up their warmongering in “freedom” and even “socialism.” “The communists who run Twitter.”

“The communists who run the FBI.”

This is your brain melting from anti-communism.” (-Danny Haiphong)

In other words, if twitter does not comply with assisting the state in monitoring the public they will have a problem with Congress. Folks, what you are witnessing is the disarray among ruling class forces with neoliberal fraction opting for more repression & control.” (-Ajamu Baraka)

“Yes, we should all love capitalism for creating billions of poor people just to enrich a tiny few elites. Bush lied, more than a million Iraqis died.

Obama lied, more than 500,000 Syrians and Libyans died. Biden lied, more than 100,000+ Ukrainians died.

U.S. Presidents are the world’s most dangerous gangsters.

Meanwhile, the US is inching closer to World War III with Russia and China, monopolists like Musk have caused permanent recession, and hunger and poverty are skyrocketing.” (-Danny Haiphong)

“People defend their rulers for the same reason cultists defend their cult leader: because they’ve been indoctrinated. And using many of the same psychological manipulation techniques.” (-Caitlin Johnstone)

HUMAN LEAGUE

Last year for Christmas I got that fantastic book about the New Romantic movement and it made ya smile alot, ya know if you grew up on “Smash Hits” and “ID” and “Interview” magazine like me-all the stories of weirdos nightclubbers like Marilyn and Boy George and Steve Strange and Nick Rhodes and John Taylor forming bands or obtaining early synthesizers and primitive drum machines and imitating Kraftwork and Bowie and Reggae and Bambatta however poorly gave us everything from Soft Cell to Howard Jones, Depeche Mode and Ministry. I still love all that stuff. One of the girls in the band quipped that Phil Oakey probably wanted some foxy black chicks like Bryan Ferry had but got two white chcicks who couldn’t sing, instead. So I gotta rememeber to cancel this Roku 7 day free trial probably expensive concert channel before they start charging me an arm and a leg but wow, man, in spite of my Loud Teenager yelling over most of it and complaining about how bad they suck, and he is not entirely wrong, I really loved and enjoyed watching the HUMAN LEAGUE concert video and hope to finish seeing the rest of it tonight. I love Human League, Phil Oakey is one of the reasons I first pierced an ear and dyed my hair and started dressing like I did back in 82 or 83 resulting in so much authoritarian persecution and conformity cow violence. I’ll always love The League. Anti-Nowhere League, too.

GUY GRIFFIN The Quireboys – Blackwater – Orchestral Quireboys Live – YouTube WHERE’S SPIKE?

MONDAY MORNINGWokeup terrified about going to the dentist again, worried about my very estranged and missing adult children, what kinda world we are lettin’ ’em inherit while we sleepwalk drowsily through this bullshit big pharma mooodpill I-phone metaverse psy ops propaganda spell. Try to talk to some friend you’ve known since third grade about 5Gen warfare, how d’ya think they’ll respond? All the middle aged, middle class moms seem mostly content to help preserve the far rightwing corporate billionaire secretive ruling class staus quo, s’long as they are presented with some diverse and fauxwoke politeness, shitlib celebrities like Kopmala and AOC (they/the man) they can worship, and nobody threatens to take away their winebox/pain pills, hot tub, passive income, or Amazon priviliges. Dudes I knew will stab you in the back just to stand in some squre foot beneath a lightbulb in the corner of some gentrified hive mind brunch bar, or to smack talk ya to that girl you used to know. So windy out here in Marlboro Country, that all the town’s Santas blew down, ya know-they all look passed out drunk…or weeping for humanity. I’m in a hostage situation, nowhere to run, nowhere to go. Can’t relate to nobody, got nothing in common with the money having empire havers. Somebody told me you can’t get on an Amtrak or Grayhound without a valid ID since Bush launched his fakeass police state “war (of) terror”, but DMV stayed closed during Fauchi shutdowns when a lotta people’s ID’s expired-now you need an appointment. And two forms of ID to get your ID even if you still got the expired ID. Shitlibs think all this stuff is just clerical errors, human oversight, bureaucratic red tape, oopsy daisy “well you shoulda blah blah blah”, but us poor people down on the street know the motherfuckers who own the government are trying to kill off all us inconvenient poor people. Kissinger calls us useless eaters-his protege Schwab has big plans to chip you and steal all your stuff. First they put their operatives in government and they incrementally strip you of human rights, while their gatekeeper bridge troll media whores bullshit you into thinking it’s all for a higher cause, the greater good-woke science and proper pro noun diversity. It’s a sham. You been pink and greenwashed-no billioniares care about your children’s wellbeing. When your Sunday church Target says Expect More Pay less, they talkin’ ’bout their policy towards their slaves. I don’t believe in billionaires or political parties, or today’s new slogan on pig-media, or that my identity can be assigned, defined or dictated or replicated by others. Certainly not by insanely giddy depopulator Gates or his Bond villain creepy crony Klaus in his occultic sci-fi dress. I was watching “Blade Runner” on VHS in the garage, hadn’t seen it since the 80’s-good flick-one of the Replicants is telling his hunter what it’s like to be a slave and live in fear all your life. That’s also a theme of my own song lyrics, so I guess others have been contemplating these grim facts of life before me. It really is a class war being aggressively waged on multiple fronts against us slaves by theses mighty psychopaths and we’re all so conditioned, we applaud them while they kill us, and curse our fellow slaves. Think about how England was forced to mourn for weeks when their monarch died. You better order that big pizza box football feast before halftime or it might be late, nudge, nudge. I live in the Southwest nowherelands and have to hear about the fucking UK royals and what Elon Musk had for breakfast EVERYDAY. Try and go a half an hour without hearing somebody Blaming Trump for everything, even though he’s just one more asshole ruling class bigoted blowhard, there’s millions more just like him. My high school sports coaches, most of the old men at my grandfather’s golf course. Every judge. Every member of the military. Your former father in law the nightclub owner. C’mon, think about it, you think he’s some unusual anomoly? Take a look at your dad. Ain’t he bitchin’ about the immigrants and protestors and Colin Kirkpatrick and how nobody wants to work, like, right now? Scotch n steak and casual racism? Law & Order, backs the blue? I’m so depressed I wanna go to sleep, but the mail lady’s gonna be here soon and she don’t like gettin’ out of her car so she honks the horn so I’ll come fetch the mail at the end of the driveway-she drive real fast, they all seem like maniacs to me now. I’m supposed to be getting a book for my birthday. I asked my mom for the Repalcements book, but then I realized, I should’ve asked for the RAZZLE book instead. Lucky to get anything, hope the heat holds up tonight. At my age you’re lucky to ecven have a roof. If you’re poor, you’re lucky to have even some of your teeth. Supposed to get down into the twenties tonight. The wind has knocked the whole town sideways. Lotta people are frightened as fuck about the stuff that Mark Crispin Miller and Tessa Fights Robots have to say about science, truth, facts, and profit motive propaganda, but I believe their main message remains, “Stay Human”, which is becoming ever more challlenging, in this Bladerunner-like Fifth Gen Warfare Metaverse Hive Mind Total Spectrum Domination Panopticon Monopoly Twitterverse Fake World.

Cold morning, many worries, miss my longlost, long gone, sadly absent, adult kids, might be taking more landscaping work, helping care for an ailing cowboy, the lady I was working for kinda gently replaced me with an infinitely more qualified and knowledgeable handyman, who actually knows how to fix things with tools, and aint as afraid of climbing high ladders, she was fortunate to find him, he works cheap and most fix-it guys around here are halfassed fly by night leave it all undone/might steal shysters. I don’t mind getting my hands dirty helpin’ out, but I’m not a handy dandy to-do list, roof and heating repairman, home improvement kinda guy, which was of course, my ex wife’s main complaint-she said she wanted a help-mate, somebody to retile the floor on her flip properties. I’m better with like a microphone stand and some scarves than I am with you know a hammer, rake, plunger or drill. I keep thinkin’ bout the Guy Griffin/Spike split and what a shame it is. I tend to sympathize with Spike. Ya know it’s happened to me before-even the guys who I helped build their whole thing from the ground up have looked at me and decided, i don’t need that guy, I’ll just sing his songs and wear his old hat. Use his bandname, nobody’ll know the difference. Of course everybody knows the difference. It’s kinda trippy bein’ me cause to my face all the hipsters and artsy fartsies will talk about how it’s groovier to be free, than have money, can barely hold  the pose for five seconds before they are full on back to rambling on about how they’re gonna be rich and famous, rich and famous, rich and famous, overnight rich and famous. Their mother in laws’s letting ’em run the Airbandb and they got their lotus flower paintings for sale in the lobby, or their wife bought ’em a website and a podcast and some vanity merchandise so now they decided they can eat your face and be you, they got the Tuesday night records DJ spot at the fake divebar in the gentrification zipcode where douchelords can punch homeless sick people and get away with it. The fake rocker kids in the expensive hats will all slap ’em on the back and affirm their alpha male ownership society “Thank You, Sir” status so they can keep theirTuesday night records DJ spot and free drink tickets to give to girls.

Let’s Be Clear: If WW3 Happens It Will Be The Result Of Choices Made By The US Empire (substack.com)

THEY GOT NOTHIN’ IN THIS WORLD TO LIVE UP TO

I can’t even tell you why I wake up so depressed everyday, I’ve been called a dry drunk by the cult of al anon. It’s a lotta factors. Grief, estrangement, disappointment, betrayals and abandonment, rejection, tyranny, being browbeaten by lies and ruling class bullshit all day everyday and all my ex friends and relatives totally buying into the Bulllshit Narratives that all purpiose unprecedented super villain Trump is in cahoots with Putin, that Trump is somehow an anomoly and to blame for all of society’s ills, and that woke, philanthropic, feminist pants suits like AOC, Obama, Bill Gates, and Doctor Fauchi just want them to be healthy, happy, joyous and free for super scientific philanthropic salvation. We’re on the brink of World War 3 thanks to Sleepy Joe’s dementia gung ho Reagan like cowboy brinkmanship and the Fraud Squad broken campaign promise phoniness, all the poor people are dying, or being evicted because they can’t pay two grand a month with minimum wages, but middle class shitlibs just wanna virtue signal their support for Zelensky and Pfizer and bug eating transkids Canadian Euthanasia rights.I’ll admit it. I wanna flee this relentless barrage of on script unrealities and yes,  drink some booze and melt into old songs.

In 1985, I was struttin’ around Lower Manhattan with a buncha crazy friends-a hard boozing intellectual, important dayjob having political consultant son of the guy who founded the Village Voice who hipped me to Lenny Bruce and all this NYC politics and newspaper stuff-we’d go to all these crazy parties and he’d pay for all my Guinness and Jameson’s and we’d have to send him home in his oversized detective trench coat semi passed out in the back of the taxi cab; a bearded, drunken Lithuanian poet who got me into Bukowski who let me play “Let It Bleed” until the dawn’s early light; a beautiful older girl friend in a sparkling dress from East L.A, who dabbled in filmmaking but excelled at being a shake the earth it-girl wherever she went; a superbrained intellectual from Spanish Harlem with a big scar on his face who introduced me to the writings of Eldridge Cleaver; a loudly abrasive and curmudgeonly know it all Jewish jazz snob with a rent controlled be-bop apartment on 11th street and the blackest sense of offensive humor I’d ever met-who constantly shocked me into laughing out loud but bought me beer and woke me up each day by bellowing, “Shit Urchin!” and his beautiful, hip, black, British girlfriend. Some actor-cosmopolitan bigtime sophisticates in an 11th floor party/video editing loft on Broadway and Astor Place who got me into all kinda music. Aside from being abducted by a black Manson and his karate cult in Washington Square Park for a few days, it was mostly all loitering at King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut or Downtown Beirut, going to museums, galleries, after hours bars, old records, real cool indie boutiques still overflowing with like sequinned brasieres and rhinestone sunglasses, leopardskin pillbox hats, leather trousers, salmon colored Bogart fedoras, you know, all the eighties Cramps influenced underground retro cool trash culture. Freebeing records, little vhs rental storefronts that specialized in old B Movies. Crazy hip-hop influenced graffiti was still all over the place. Sicko filmmakers, next big thing designers. The ABC No Rio/Rivington Street Art Park anarchist community. I was living in my own B-Movie back then, kinda part Fleshtones and part John Waters, going to the Pyramid Club with my sometimes roommate, Minkie The Mink-a Nancy Spungeon clone from Michigan shrieking at the drag queen doorperson to let me in because I was her son, in a matching leopardskin coat. Running up people’s phonebills keeping in touch with my teenage muse in honky suburbia and finding out about all kindsa cool music that really seemed to capture and convey all my impossible feelings for her-bands like New Order, Joy Division, Gene Loves Jezebel, and Charlie Sexton. Fra Lippo Lippi: “heaven help me if this is love…how can you ask me, then let me go? I still believe there’s A HEART IN HERE…” Charlie I first saw in some Random Notes partying with Ronnie Wood, he was supposedly the shithot new Texan boogie guitar star in the Stevie Ray Vaughan mold, both Billy Idol and Steve Stevens at the same time, but when you heard his pulsing Keith Forsey dance record it was all synths and drum machines and Charlie crooning his heart out in a voice that was equal parts David Bowie and Elvis Prseley. “So lonely…so lonely!” would play in my head as I trudged around in the filthy grime and slushy snow of downtown Manhattan in cold December, missing that chick in the Midwest. He had joined Joe Ely, a guy Joe Strummer was really into’s band when he was just a young teenager like me, but I could not play guitar for shit, still can’t, even though I owned a Tokai that had been autographed by Steveie Ray Vaughan until my church girlfriend took a call from my new wave girlfriend and all hell broke loose and both of their moms drove them over to confiscate their belongings from my mother’s basement.

    The plan was for my skate rat stoner pal Dave to play that guitar and I’d become the sidewalk barker medicine show loudmouth protest singer frontman. I was really into like, Roy Rogers and Doctor Creep and  the Fonz, Evil Kenivel, Lux Interior, and David Lee Roth-all the red baron Peter Pans with aviator goggles and ghetto boxes, greaser streetgangs, singing cowboys, and campy horror hosts, so I thought I’d be a bit of all that and see what happened! You know here I’m like 35, maybe 37 years later, and I’m still callin’ my as yet unassembled, imaginary goth-gang, the Loneliness Maximum Torch & Twang! Yeah, I was totally influenced by Charlie Sexton, Elvis, the Stray Cats, Cramps, Chris Isaak, Tyla, Mink Deville, HST, and all the bands who sang about outsider alienation and unrequited love and had cool hair and black leather jackets. In more recent years, Charlie went on to play part time second fiddle in the Arc Angels sharing vocal duties and then became Dylan’s main guitar hero, but man, being a team player is cool as fuck and everything, but that dude had one of the best voices, ever, in my book. You ever hear his tribute to EP from the “True Romance” soundtrack? That’s the only Q Tarantino movie I ever liked, first place ya saw James Gandolfini. It was too violent and abusive for my frail little heart but there was so much quotable, epic dialog, ya know me and an old bassplayer once were calling our demotape band Heroes For Sale after the comicbook store in that movie, we weren’t the only ones. Pre internet, you’d be calling your garage band like, the Causalties, or Undesirables and designing your elaborate cartoon skull logo in the leather daddy biker ha with the obligatory eyepatch and Zapatista gun belt for your stickers and fliers and t shirts but have no idea there were already ten other bands goin’ by that same moniker. Cats like Lux and Joey Ramone and Stiv Bators offered me irrefutable proof that one need not be as pinup pretty as Charlie Sexton to still rock like fuck and sing your heart out and all I ever wanted to do since I was about four or five was front an unholy barbarian band of rebellious gypsy wastrel revolution rockers. Once I saw David Peel hollering in Tompkins Square Park, I was in like Flynn. With the Out Crowd. Nowadays you got these preppie model millionaire manufactured forgery fabrications like bogus boyband faux quirky monarch programmed Harry Styles suddenly dressing up in the pink shiny pants and pink furry coats just like me in 1987, but bizarrely, they are being paid millions for it cause Bowie glam androgyny has been suddenly hijacked by Davos billionaires to advance some Klaus Schawb occultist transhumanist agebnda. They threw me into like Hitlerian Baptist reform schools and sent me to shrinks and encouraged their All Amukkkan football teams to beat me silly for dressing exactly like that 30 some years ago. What madness. So yeah, man. Charlie Sexton, he is all aces. One of my top faves even into my elderly goth years when it’s cold in my bones and there aint no good news forthcoming, his music still sings straight to my old tombstone mind and big bottle heart. Come back, Charlie, rocknroll never forgets. When I was young and pining over some lost love, it was most usually like say the Smiths or New Order or the Replacements that I was listening to. As I got older, it was most often Chris Isaak. My wife always says I should track down Keith Forsey and get him to produce me but I figure that dude made more money than KISS between Billy Idol and “Don’t You Forget About Me”, he’s probably in some disco mansion on a beach with Georgio Moroder remixing some mountains of cocaine fuelled Studio 54 masterpieces, I just moved out of a leaky no furnace fuckled up trailer in the middle of nowhere land and have no band but yeah I love that glossy eighties new wave Psychedelic Furs and Charlie Sexton soundtrack sheen. Of course I know it’s too late for me, been hearing that since I was about twenty one, but ya know, I believe in miracles. I believe in a better world for me and you, so open that bottle, mateys, hoist the black flag. You tell ’em General Labor’s comin’, and all the brothers and sisters and friends of the revolution are ridin’ with me!

KINGS OF THE HIGHWAY

I always related to the outcasts, misfits, throways, scorned by society, the people in the little old man skid row divebars ya know? As Tyla so elqoently sang, the sad and the lonely are the only ones with style. Oscar Wilde said it all first and better. Nobody ever sang it better than Chris Isaak though. Okay maybe Tex Perkins, sometimes. Or Leonard Cohen, Kris Kristooferson, that’s about it though.

One band that united all us comic book reading greasy kid stuff leather jacketed boys, back when the skins hung out with the jocks and the punks and new wavers were considered mortal enemies of the metalheads and thrashers and all the dumbfuck follower cliques had their rulebooks and regulations I kinda hadda scoff at and still do, we all loved the Misfits and Danzig. Ones who say they did not were either nerds or they’re just lying to appease the bespectacled fauxwoke gender studiers with the beige and argyle lives and pet hair all over their clothes.I’ve always hated sniveling asskissers sucking up to power for extra credit. Shit, my band of wild eyed wolf children covered three Misfits songs and two Danzigs. He might be a bit of a bridge n tunnel rightwing mook weightlifter but I always thought he was extraordinarliy entertaining and talented and a great vocalist in the presley/Lux/Morrison tradition.

GET TOGETHER IN OUR PRIME

“At first flash of Eden

We raced down to the sea
Standing there on freedom’s shore”

I will tell you this: when I was 12 and 13, Jim Morrison’s “Absolutely Live” made more of a lifelong lasting impression on me than any of those bullshit racist whitewash history books, hungup homophobic military recruiters, creepy deepwoods perverse pedophile brimstone prechers, brutal bruising wrestling team coaches, stupid fucking preppie sadist Amerikkan Psychos in their dumb golf shirts with their mama mansions and license to harm less powerful people, or the endless behavior modification torture techniques of all those horrible detention hall abusers. He was right and they are wrong. I still yearn to be wild and free again. I had a friend at that age who was a real heavy metal guitar prodigy like Randy Rhoades who also loved the Doors, but he kinda always wanted to be popular. His mom gave him a sports car at some point, and he got a goth girlfriend, but somehow, they corraled him into joining the military and he became a sharpshooting sniper for the empire, instead of a shirtless longhair playing classical influenced solos in the spotlight at my side, so that was a big bummer to me cause I thought he would always be one of the pirates, the resistance, the outlaws, the rebel alliance, aw man, ya win some, ya lose some. Losing that dude to the military was one of my life’s first real setbacks, I mourned his decision for a number of years. Some of our other friends sadly followed. I stayed the course, ya know Jim Morrison was like my gateway into Iggy Pop and Stiv Bators. After I met those guys, something in me changed. There was no going back to the namby pamby, clock punching, grocery bagging, suburban world of mime and acquisition. All those kids we used to know grew up to be regular tv watching home owners and like, gentrification brunchers-somedays, it really gets me down.

SOUTHERN DEATH CULT

 Some hardnosed sadists in youth corrections seemed to get their jollies by punishing working class and particularly black youth for any deviation from sieg heil sports and military obedience culture, so we so called delinquents kinda had to rally together and I met some of my life’s best friends in juvie hall where the authorities and their sports mom bosses hoped to permanently break our youthful creative spirit. When I finally got out of the detention center for wayward DJ/rappers and styling product abusing makeup wearers, I was subjected to some repeat gang violence where jealous husband rednecks of girls who had a lingering thing for me and their friends held me down and bloodied my nose, broke my glasses, the usual pummelings I was sortof accustomed to and would be ongoing features of my visits to Ohio where they manufacture the fratboys even into the grunge years. The couch potato mama’s boys action flick tough talkers who always bragged about their manly fighting skills ran from the beatdowns. Left me to my fate.Only good thing about those guys was their mom’s house had warmth in the winter, they were seven and ten years older so they bought my beer and smokes with their rich kid allowances and let me immerse myself in their elaborate record collection where I discovered many of my favorite bands. The Southern Death Cult, Theater Of Hate, Sisters Of Mercy, the Mission, 45 Grave, some Bauhaus side projects and spinoffs I’d never heard before. A Lotta life changing stuff like that. I was really particularly en thralled by Andrew Eltrich and Ian Astbury and have to concede my early bands initially suffered somewhat as a result of my trying too hard to sound like Ian rather than finding my own voice. It took awhile. You know what’s crazy as fuck? I’m the only old punk I know who kept his core values, is still actively anti fascist, anti corporate, anti censorship, anti war in middle age. Like Cait Johnstone said, everybody’s antiwar until the propaganda starts. It’s a sad world we live in.

RAIN

Brothers & Sisters & Friends Of The Revolution, I don’t know what we’re gonna do to turn this ship around. Evil billionaires at the top of the capitalist pyramids have consolidated unprecedented power, seized control of nearly all media, own the politicians outtright via not just campaign donations and shit, but legalized bribery, kickbacks, cronyism, and blackmail. All I really got worked out is we’re all gonna have to overcome our most basic biases and prejudices and form new alliances, new kinds of coalitions. I used to think you could “raise people’s consciousness”, but nowadays, with the mass surveillance panopticon and complete control of both old timey tv media and the new social platforms, I think it’s unlikely we’re gonna be able to wake anybody up, particularly as how the most stubbornly compliant and conformist protectors of the status quo-the middle class college safespace gatekeeper management class and landlord people have already been marketing branded as supposedly woke, and taught that anyone to the right (or left) of Hillary Clinton and Bill Gates is a dastardly commie, I think it’s becoming ever more unlikely that we can get our former peers to ever look beyond the advertising smokescreens of the imperialist great reset agenda. It rained and rained buckets last night, there was a glorious lightning show and we saw two skunks. A baby skunk got lost amidst the mosquito net draping we had hanging in the carport for our son’s swimming pool. I love the rain but kinda dread trudging through the knee deep muddy floodlands to the post office this morning. As my comrade John Dissed says, we gotta keep finding new ways to communicate with one another outside the bullshit sports team loyalist frame and empty suit charade of right versus left.

REJECT ALL MONARCHIES, TYRANTS, DESPOTS, BILLIONAIRES, SPOOKS, & SECRET SOCIETIES

“The fawning adulation of Queen Elizabeth in the United States, which fought a revolution to get rid of the monarchy, and in Great Britain, is in direct proportion to the fear gripping a discredited, incompetent and corrupt global ruling elite.

The global oligarchs are not sure the next generation of royal sock puppets – mediocrities that include a pedophile prince and his brother, a cranky and eccentric king who accepted suitcases and bags stuffed with $3.2 million in cash from the former prime minister of Qatar Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, and who has millions stashed in offshore accounts – are up to the job. Let’s hope they are right.

“Having a monarchy next door is a little like having a neighbour who’s really into clowns and has daubed their house with clown murals, displays clown dolls in each window and has an insatiable desire to hear about and discuss clown-related news stories,” Patrick Freyne wrote last year in The Irish Times. “More specifically, for the Irish, it’s like having a neighbour who’s really into clowns and, also, your grandfather was murdered by a clown.”

Monarchy obscures the crimes of empire and wraps them in nostalgia. It exalts white supremacy and racial hierarchy. It justifies class rule. It buttresses an economic and social system that callously discards and often consigns to death those considered the lesser breeds, most of whom are people of color. The queen’s husband Prince Phillip, who died in 2021, was notorious for making racist and sexist remarks, politely explained away in the British press as “gaffes.” He described Beijing, for example, as “ghastly” during a 1986 visit and told British students: “If you stay here much longer you’ll all be slitty-eyed.

The cries of the millions of victims of empire; the thousands killedtortured, raped and imprisoned during the Mau Mau rebellion in Kenya; the 13 Irish civilians gunned down in “Bloody Sunday;” the more than 4,100 First Nations children who died or went missing in Canada’s residential schools, government-sponsored institutions established to “assimilate” indigenous children into Euro-Canadian culture, and the hundreds of thousands killed during the invasion and occupation of Iraq and Afghanistan are drowned out by cheers for royal processions and the sacral aura an obsequious press weaves around the aristocracy. The coverage of the queen’s death is so mind-numbingly vapid — the BBC sent out a news alert on Saturday when Prince Harry and Prince William, accompanied by their wives, surveyed the floral tributes to their grandmother displayed outside Windsor Castle — that the press might as well turn over the coverage to the mythmakers and publicists employed by the royal family.

The royals are oligarchs. They are guardians of their class. The world’s largest landowners include King Mohammed VI of Morocco with 176 million acres, the HolyRoman Catholic Church with 177 million acres, the heirs of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia with 531 million acres and now, King Charles III with 6.6 billion acres of land. British monarchs are worth almost $28 billion. The British public will provide a $33 million subsidy to the Royal Family over the next two years, although the average household in the U.K. saw its income fall for the longest period since records began in 1955 and 227,000 households experience homelessness in Britain. 

Royals, to the ruling class, are worth the expense. They are effective tools of subjugation. British postal and rail workers canceled planned strikes over pay and working conditions after the queen’s death. The Trade Union Congress (TUC) postponed its congress. Labour Party members poured out heartfelt tributes. Even Extinction Rebellion, which should know better, indefinitely canceled its planned “Festival of Resistance.” The BBC’s Clive Myrie dismissed Britain’s energy crisis — caused by the war in Ukraine — that has thrown millions of people into severe financial distress as “insignificant” compared with concerns over the queen’s health.The climate emergency, pandemic, the deadly folly of the U.S. and NATO’s proxy war in Ukraine, soaring inflation, the rise of neo-fascist movements and deepening social inequality will be ignored as the press spews florid encomiums to class rule. There will be 10 days of official mourning.

In 1953, Her Majesty’s Government sent three warships, along with 700 troops, to its colony British Guiana, suspended the constitution and overthrew the democratically elected government of Cheddi Jagan. Her Majesty’s Government helped to build and long supported the apartheid government in South Africa. Her Majesty’s Government savagely crushed the Mau Mau independence movement in Kenya from 1952 to 1960, herding 1.5 million Kenyans into concentration camps where many were tortured. British soldiers castrated suspected rebels and sympathizers, often with pliers, and raped girls and women. By the time India won independence in 1947 after two centuries of British colonialism, Her Majesty’s Government had looted $45 trillion from the country and violently crushed a series of uprisings, including the First War of Independence in 1857. Her Majesty’s Government carried out a dirty war to break the Greek Cypriot War of Independence from 1955 to 1959 and later in Yemen from 1962 to 1969. Torture, extrajudicial assassinations, public hangings and mass executions by the British were routine. Following a protracted lawsuit, the British government agreed to pay nearly £20 million in damages to over 5,000 victims of British abuse during war in Kenya, and in 2019 another payout was made to survivors of torture from the conflict in Cyprus. The British state attempts to obstruct lawsuits stemming from its colonial history. Its settlements are a tiny fraction of the compensation paid to British slave owners in 1835, once it — at least formally — abolished slavery. 

During her 70-year reign, the queen never offered an apology or called for reparations.

The point of social hierarchy and aristocracy is to sustain a class system that makes the rest of us feel inferior. Those at the top of the social hierarchy hand out tokens for loyal service, including the Order of the British Empire (OBE). The monarchy is the bedrock of hereditary rule and inherited wealth. This caste system filters down from the Nazi-loving House of Windsor to the organs of state security and the military. It regiments society and keeps people, especially the poor and the working class, in their “proper” place.

The British ruling class clings to the mystique of royalty and fading cultural icons as James Bond, the Beatles and the BBC, along with television shows such as “Downton Abbey” — where in one episode the aristocrats and servants are convulsed in fevered anticipation when King George V and Queen Mary schedule a visit — to project a global presence. Winston Churchill’s bust remains on loan to the White House. These myth machines sustain Great Britain’s “special” relationship with the United States. Watch the satirical film In the Loop to get a sense of what this “special” relationship looks like on the inside. 

It was not until the 1960s that “coloured immigrants or foreigners” were permitted to work in clerical roles in the royal household, although they had been hired as domestic servants. The royal household and its heads are legally exempt from laws that prevent race and sex discrimination, what Jonathan Cook calls “an apartheid system benefitting the Royal Family alone.” Meghan Markle, who is of mixed race and who contemplated suicide during her time as a working royal, said that an unnamed royal expressed concern about the skin color of her unborn son.

I got a taste of this suffocating snobbery in 2014 when I participated in an Oxford Union debate asking whether Edward Snowden was a hero or a traitor. I went a day early to be prepped for the debate by Julian Assange, then seeking refuge in the Ecuadorian Embassy and currently in His Majesty’s Prison Belmarsh. At a lugubrious black-tie dinner preceding the event, I sat next to a former MP who asked me two questions I had never been asked before in succession. “When did your family come to America?” he said, followed by “What schools did you attend?” My ancestors, on both sides of my family, arrived from England in the 1630s. My graduate degree is from Harvard. If I had failed to meet his litmus test, he would have acted as if I did not exist. 

Those who took part in the debate – my side arguing that Snowdon was a hero narrowly won – signed a leather-bound guest book. Taking the pen, I scrawled in large letters that filled an entire page: “Never Forget that your greatest political philosopher, Thomas Paine, never went to Oxford or Cambridge.”

Paine, the author of the most widely read political essays of the 18th century, Rights of ManThe Age of Reason and Common Sense, blasted the monarchy as a con. “A French bastard landing with an armed banditti and establishing himself as King of England against the consent of the natives, is in plain terms a very paltry rascally original…The plain truth is that the antiquity of the English monarchy will not bear looking into,” he wrote of William the Conqueror. He ridiculed hereditary rule. “Of more worth is one honest man to society, and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived.” He went on: “One of the strangest natural proofs of the folly of hereditary right in kings is that nature disproves it, otherwise she would not so frequently turn it into ridicule, by giving  mankind an ass for a lion.” He called the monarch “the royal brute of England.”

When the British ruling class tried to arrest Paine, he fled to France where he was one of two foreigners elected to serve as a delegate in the National Convention set up after the French Revolution. He denounced the calls to execute Louis XVI. “He that would make his own liberty secure must guard even his enemy from oppression,” Paine said. “For if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.” Unchecked legislatures, he warned, could be as despotic as unchecked monarchs. When he returned to America from France, he condemned slavery and the wealth and privilege accumulated by the new ruling class, including George Washington, who had become the richest man in the country. Even though Paine had done more than any single figure to rouse the country to overthrow the British monarchy, he was turned into a pariah, especially by the press, and forgotten. He had served his usefulness. Six mourners attended his funeral, two of whom were Black.

You can watch my talk with Cornel West and Richard Wolff on Thomas Paine here.

There is a pathetic yearning among many in the U.S. and Britain to be linked in some tangential way to royalty. White British friends often have stories about ancestors that tie them to some obscure aristocrat. Donald Trump, who fashioned his own heraldic coat of arms, was obsessed with obtaining a state visit with the queen. This desire to be part of the club, or validated by the club, is a potent force the ruling class has no intention of giving up, even if hapless King Charles III, who along with his family treated his first wife Diana with contempt, makes a mess of it.” (-Chris Hedges)

“This idea that Democrats aren’t fascists is the biggest and most dangerous lie of all. When both parties have completely sold out the public and formed a corrupt merger between corporations and the state it means both parties and the entire political system are fascist.” (-Ryan Knight)

“The Democratic Party won’t even allow a vote on whether to stop taking dark money. The blatant corruption of the 2-party system by big money donors is why we need to build our own party.” (-Matt Hoh For Senate)

“Of course the US empire wanted this war. That’s why it knowingly provoked it and actively intervened to prevent peace from breaking out in the early days of the conflict. It’s been using this war to advance its Eurasian geostrategic interests at very little cost to itself.” (-Caitlin Johnstone)

www.opensecrets.org

“These folks are in your face with their agenda –  war profits and continued white world imperialist dominance. This right-wing neoliberal opportunist is just current face for that agenda.” (-Ajamu Baraka)

“The dark power of royalty. In 1971, the Chagos Islanders were expelled by the British to make way for a US base. This was made possible by a meeting of the Queen’s Privy Councillors (advisers) and approved in person by the Queen. Using the same power, Blair invaded Iraq in 2003.” (-John Pilger)

“Capitalism is based on wage slavery — doing something you don’t really love in order to survive. Basically most of us work 5 days a week in order to rent our freedom back on weekends. This is why many people are #QuietQuitting” (-Lee Camp)

“If you’re wondering why the DNC just refused to ban dark money it’s because Democrats took even more of it than Republicans in 2020. Remember this next time Democrats give their speeches about “saving democracy.” There is no democracy in the U.S. Both parties serve the oligarchy.” (-Ryan Knight)

“In Chile communists held a Sep. 11 march condemning the CIA coup and remembering the victims of the Pinochet dictatorship But they were attacked by masked provocateurs with knives, rocks, and sticks It’s unclear if they were fascists, cops, or anarchists.” (-Ben Norton)

“The American Dream never died. It never existed for most workers even in the best of economic times. Now it’s a cruel joke where 80 percent live one paycheck away from poverty, bankruptcy, homelessness or worse.” (-Danny Haiphong)

JULIAN COPE

first came to my attention via “World Shut Your Mouth” on 120 Minutes, he had been in the Teardrop Explodes and made a long series of very esoteric and farout psychedelic records, the whole Black Sheep crusade really reminded me of me and my old gang before we all shot off like hard cracked billiard balls in different directions. Real cool stuff. I wanna do it all again. Sundays are such a slow moving grind in this still hot dead end desert ghost ville, I almost hope my part time employer calls with some kooky chore-yesterday it was picking up sticks and moving piles of wooden sticks with rusty nails and floorboards and shit from one property to another and rolling some impossibly heavy cement planters full of dirt into a spider ridden garage. I’m so bored and restless on a day like today-of course, what I really wanna be doing is making new music, I put some signs up on a local billboard. Hard to recruit a ragged army from the half crazed skeletons and desert rats around here, but I keep on searchin’. I’m gonna buy the kid some drums once we get relocated. I just came back indoors from a long walk in the hot sun, ya know people ask me with how I cope with the monotony of such a rundown dead broke deadend trailer town, town. Photography, I guess. It’s always a sad thing when you bring the camera but forget the memory card. I take pictures of the river and rocks and flowers and clouds. My shirtless teen just informed me it is 9/11. Apparently twenty one days ago today my middle kid’s mom memorably first informed me she “did not want to be part of a couple”. I think I stuck around for another year after that still trying hopelessly to stay a part of my children’s lives, but sadly, it did not work out-she held all the cards and power, moved ’em cross country, bonded ’em to a long series of strangers and by the time I got out there, the younger one had mostly forgotten me-just another of her mom’s many suitor ex employees. So yeah 9/11 was an inside job. The war on terror was a big bullshit lie. There were no WMD’s and W later laughed about it. Rumsfeld had given a speech about missing trillions the day before. Art students in the basement, Lucky Silverstein, Prince Bandar, Marvin Bush, Cheney called off Norad. No wingspan in the Pentagon hole. All bullshit. I thought you knew. Figure out Building #7. Everything since has been more lies, fictions, propaganda, bullshit, made up puppet stars like Zelensky and Obama and AOC and fascism…with a handful of preassigned and vetted, controlled opposition, red carpet diversity muppets. Teen Beat celebrity pinup politicians. Marionettes. Just More Fuckin’ Endless Dick Cheney, Rebranded. Now…the daughter. UGH! Once upon a time I found myself doing some handy work for a wealthy rancher/airbandb heiress house hoarder who every time I was ever around her, she always mentioned “the patriarchy” as her way of deflecting from the fact that she holds all this surplus property and unearned power and excess privilege-it’s triggering for me cause I’ve had issues with these heiresses before-they won’t get off their daddy’s gravy train but they resent the power he has over their mom and sibling’s lives, so they transfer all those resentments and hostilities neatly over to their underling employees or tenants, particularly in Honkytopia, Oregon-Gender is Religion there. Wealthy rancher/airbandb heiress house hoarders always seem to gravitate towards some kinda new age religion that reassures them they deserve all their power, and a spa day, and “market value rent” even if it’s just residual karma from all their charitable acts in past lives. Don’t call them bossy-call them greedhead oppressor capitalists.

Remember when John Denver, Frank Zappa, Jello Biafra, Dee Snider, all those people got tied up in court and shit and had to go to Washington to fight for free speech? Since 9/11, the corporate monoploy/state media brainwash media has been so fucking crazy relentless, that people who call themselves “Progressives” and also, on the right, some so called “Patriots” all fuckin’ cheerlead for censorship and top down, uniparty, authoritarian, narrative control. That’s fuckedup. All you have to do is get some Karen to say some shit’s Offensive. The police state not only spies on, but controls the discussions on all social media platforms, they monopolize the new media just like they monopolized legacy media in 1996. Meanwhile, like Julian Cope, I also try to rally all the black sheep.

But when Russian forces entered her family’s native Ukraine, she reached for the flag of the Nazi-allied UPA. (She’s since deleted this image)” (-Max Blumenthal)

POISON HEART

Somebody seems to have stolen and relocated one of my kid’s semi-feral outdoor cats again and I have my suspicions it is probably an old grump with some mental health problems who lives nearby and has done that kind of thing before. He hates cats and loud kids and probably wants us to move, which, you know, we wouldn’t mind relocating at this point-ideally to some place more secluded with less OCD busybodies cussing at animals and trying to keep control over nature, wildlife, the whole terra firma at all times, because we’re not that wild about the changes we see happening in the neighborhood, with the developers putting up these real big, ugly, overnight McMansions hoping to quote “attract big California tech money”, and the cops and code enforcers and even a private drone company all being deployed by a corrupt city hall in bed with the shady developers to put the screws to the elderly home owners so they’ll be willing to sell cheap to the development swindlers. If we were more mobile, we’d already be gone, but ya know you can’t pay rent with two minimum wage incomes in this price gouge capitalist got mine, greedhead culture.

I remember thinking way back in the eighties how if I could only get a job and pay my own rent, I wouldn’t have to eat all that shit from the hate mob jealous cows of conformity, who hated anyone with principles, or style of their own, and forever felt obliged by Law to yell shit like, “Joey Ramone! and “Boy George!” whenever they saw me walking down the hallway. It just enraged all the morons that I wore a little hair product and hoop earrings and black smeared eye makeup. I thought that middle school shit would end when I finally turned 18 and the juvie authorities would have to leave me alone. I was wrong, middle school went on forever-pretty much everyone I knew as a kid, is basically just like they were back then-if they sucked up to anyone they thought was rich n popular in seventh grade, they are frequently still doing that shit in their fifties. If they were greedy hoarders who had a whole pack of unopened Marlboros but would rather smoke yours…if they were a deadbeat mooch who refused to ever wash a plate or pay rent in 1985, oftentimes, they’re still like that when approaching retirement age. If they only hung around you for access to girls and beer or sponging up the fine ideas, don’t expect they became more capable of being respectful, kind, loyal, or loving in their old age. I’m STILL that hated Joey Ramone from the bad part of town that aint about courtin’ favor with those dorks on the hill. Fuck those people. I don’t wanna be like the gentrification tv watchers. Don’t need no makeover, aint trying to be the Hot Topic or become Urban Outfitted, you dig? Aint my job to obey the squares and copycat clones cause you think they’re somehow second or third hand fake famous or vaguely associated with some kind of wealth or VIP privilege. I don’t even like those people. Certainly not their absolutely shite, redundant, embarrassingly corny joke bands. One of those suburbanized hipster fauxpunks compared a 45 I made 24 years ago to “Halfway To Sanity” era Ramones like that was supposedly this devastating putdown. I love all that stuff. Dee Dee was important. Joey, too, all of ’em. I was not that into CJ, but he helped ’em soldier on, so, yaknow God Bless Us, Every Cretin. Yeah I’m still a Ramone, at heart. I ranaway to NYC as a kid and all those guys and Lou Reed and Quentin Crisp and Stiv and Cheetah and Warhol and Haring and Basquait were all still around-ya know? the world was just a much groovier place, before the ruling class, inside job billionaires like Chertoff and Kerry and Bloomberg and Giulianis kicked all the poor people out of the once cool cities and tried to force their dumb rich kids on us, like ya know-The Strokes and Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus. No thanks. Breaks my heart the Ramones all felt like bitter, and unsuccessful before they died, in spite of touring the world and getting to make all those great records just cause they never made ya know like Bruce Springsteen money, but they gave so much strength and inspiration to so many people. You won’t see their kind get access to the mainstream airwaves, probably ever again. Just more bullshit fake rich people making bullshit fake music, that says nothing, means nothing, makes no difference, at all-just puts you to sleep. I’m so sick of all the fucking sucky bullshit muzak and dumbshit motherfuckers, who can’t tell the difference, anyway. I mean, I was never even really into like, Rancid, or D-Generation, but they suddenly seem like The Beatles and The Stones compared to the shit they try to force on us now. Back in the eighties Joey was still like throwing these real cool Acid Glitter Trashball Extravaganzas in NYC with all star lineups like Debbie Harry, Alison Gordy, Mike Monroe’s Blonde & Blue, Stevie Klasson and the Oddbalss, NYC punk heroes galore! Man those crazy hoo haw spontaneous shindigs inspired by own infamously epic all night house parties way back at our old bandhouse, Paradise Lost where people would come from three different states on the weekends to perform, jam, collaborate and sometimes the hootenannies might last for weeks. Joey just had so much heart-even when he was dyin’-his last record was called. “Don’t Worry About Me”! Ya know? Whenever I get real depressed, I watch like, Dee Dee interviews on Youtube…maybe some Kid Creole, Big Audio Dynamite and Zapp…”I Believe In Miracles” has carried this old jetboy through an awful lot of hardships and heartaches over the years, I’ll tell you that. “Poison Heart” says it all!

“Hey, you learn something new everyday. I just learned today from CNN that the notion of the U.S. as the global hegemon is part of the Russia “disinformation” campaign. The over 800 U.S. bases & trillion dollar military spending are in place to enforce global freedom. Thanks CNN.” (-Ajamu Baraka)

“Americans: drinkable water please US government: Sorry did you say send billions of dollars worth of weapons to Ukraine and Taiwan? Americans: no, drinkable water US government: Alright, you drive a hard bargain but here’s billions of dollars of weapons for Ukraine and Taiwan.” (-Caitlin Johnstone)

“On September 11th, 2001 the U.S. exploited attacks on the World Trade Center that killed several thousand to spend trillions on endless war that have murdered millions and erected the most expansive surveillance state in human history. This is the legacy of the War on Terror.” (-Danny Haiphong)

“Increasingly in cities across Europe the people are heading to the streets in response to the shifting of the cost of the Ukrainian adventure on to the working classes. But in the U.S. where the liberal/left has subordinated itself to the agenda of the neoliberal right – silence.” (-Ajamu Baraka)

“Liz Truss will be the next British prime minister. She told a town hall recently that she’s ‘ready’ to launch a nuclear war.” (-Dave Decamp)

“BREAKING: The Biden administration has announced a $3 billion package to Jackson, Mississippi to fund massive repairs and updates to water infrastructure. Just kidding. That money is going to weapons for Ukraine.” (-Danny Haiphong)

“$21 TRILLION of unaccounted-for “adjustments” by the DOD while we’ve been in Afghanistan. That’s enough to end world hunger for 700 YEARS!” (-Lee Camp)

“The US empire’s Venezuelan coup puppet Juan Guaidó is honoring Queen Elizabeth and thanking the British empire for supporting him in his coup attempt against Venezuela’s actual, elected government” (-Ben Norton)

“I feel like we don’t talk enough about the fact that a 2019 study commissioned by the US Army found that the US could advance its geostrategic interests in Eurasia by baiting Russia into overextending itself in wars against US proxies in Ukraine and elsewhere.” (-Caitlin Johnstone)

KISS DOLLS

Yeah we sat through like three and a half ours of KISS last night. As usual, a tightly controlled, robotic Gene n Paul narrative about how everybody just loves Eric and Tommy their compliant and proficient substitute stand-ins for Peter and Ace. Only missteps they ever admit are Gene’s “ego trip”, the “Phantom…” clunker that was supposed to be “Star Wars Meets A Hard Day’s Night”, and the ice skater clothes and generic power ballads of the Bon Jovi era. Did you hear Paul’s awful Amerikkkan idol garbage side project FM Station or whatever it was? Just HORRIBLE. I did appreciate how they paid honest tribute to the influence of the NY Dolls even if the last word on the subject was Paul insisting KISS blew them away musically. Lots of people disagree. If their primary statement, their manifesto was “rocknroll all night and party everyday”, how ya gonna be mad at Ace and Peter for livin’ it? Gene probably liked that “Nookie” song, what he cares about is groupies and merchandising, cashing in. I mean he told his son Nick not to work on his own car-that’s a job for the little people. So yeah, basically you already know the story-Gene’s a dick, but him and Doc McGhee are very good at making big bucks, they do admit that their cokehead eraly collaborators Ezrin and Aucoin were at least as fucked up as Ace and Peter and are probably equally responsible for all their early successes-Paul’s a lovable, mostly affable cartoon character who overcame the odds and fought his way to the top but basically is Gene’s real wife, he acts like Edith to Gene’s Archie Bunker. To Gene’s credit, I find summa their toys and swag more entertaining than much of their latter day music and from watching his old tv show, it sems clear that the guy loves his family, if not Ace and Peter. ACE is the rocknollingest motherfucker, I’ve said it from day one, maybe your preferred guitar player knows more fancy scales but ACE’S GUITAR SHOOTS FIREBALLS! Peter Chris sounds like a demanding primadonna sometimes with the Andy Summers like touring demands, but I’m one of those old dudes who only cares about the original KISS, whatever their merchandise juggernaut big machine, money printing operations look like now, same with GUNS N ROSES. They might have super fame and stadiums full of commercial country or sports fans who don’t even like real rocknroll, who never heard of Steven Adler, bot none of these rich guys in all the wigs with the employee ringer bands write good songs now. Did you hear that “Absurd” song Guns N Roses put out, trying to sound like UK Subs? Just was not very good, was it? Kinda thing we all mighta wrote in the basement circa 87, fake English accent and everything. Not interested in KISS without Ace Frehley and Peter Criss and I’m not interested in Guns N Roses without Steven and Izzy, yes I know they are all superfamous money making capitalist hundred dollar t shirt peddlers, but I’m still into bands having good songs. I probably heard “Sweet Child” enough for a lifetime. IZZY or bust. Funny thing about most Murkkkans is how we don’t really give a fuck about originality, artistry or sincerity or talent or truth or soul. Murkkkans were all trained from birth to unconditionally worship wealth and power-whether that is the evil Davos Billionaires, or John Gotti, some monarch or Saudi despot, some no talent plagiarist imitators, people just follow the whiff of moolah. None more so than Moneybags Gene. His personal logo is even a dollar sign. At least they provided some hardworking entertainment value way back in the 70’s-there is nothing, now, rocknroll wise, in the corporate media but that illuminati pop garbage. Blink 182, Dave Grohl. Ick.

“In nearly 200 years of genocidal colonialism, the British empire stole $45 trillion in wealth from India (17 times more than UK GDP), killing millions The UK monarchy, Queen Elizabeth, the royal family are simply symbols of murder, exploitation, and theft.” (-Ben Norton)

“In Syria, the White Helmets have cooperated with sectarian death squads and operated exclusively in their territory. A top Al-Qaeda leader praised the White Helmets as “hidden soldiers.” The OPCW enlisted these hidden soldiers as its field team.” (-Aaron Mate’)

“Fresh off his appearance at Wall Street, where he pitched corporations on the plunder of his country’s assets, Zelensky will appear at a conference of arms makers in Texas to present his country’s war as a fantastic business opportunity. #SlavaRaytheon” (-Max Blumenthal)

“The actual authoritarian cults of personality are Western capitalist imperialist regimes, which claim to be “democracies” but force their populations to love the symbol of an unelected hereditary monarch while their societies are truly governed by billionaire capitalist oligarchs.” (-Ben Norton)

“Maybe the country that is the threat to the world is the one with damn near 1000 military bases.” (-Black In The Empire)

BLEEDING HEART GRAFFITI

One of the last records that I remember reached any kind of mainstream audience at all that still had a lotta heart and soul and rocked was the underrated self titled CULT lp that came out around the same time I made the foolish mistake of moving back to the midwest hoping to peacefully co parent with my oldest kid’s baby mama. I shoulda known better, I never fit in in the midwest and can’t stand the preppie privatee school motherfuckers and extra large frat bros who ran everything back there. But Ian and Billy were still saying shit that was real and true even in the godless grunge years. 

“Beyond Good & Evil” was the cd me and my old sideman Nasty Bastard were blaring as we were howling down the highway, goin’ back to Boston to record at our old pop pal’s studio when the van naturally broke down in the middle of nowhere but some old farmer very kindly brought us some beer and canvas chairs and said we could feel free to camp overnight and swim in his pond. A friend of Nasty’s put me on a bus and took the van in for repairs that took forever, so while he was tied up fixing the van, I was able to record maybe four or five songs with the rest of our old lineup but we coulda-shoulda-woulda accomplished so much more had Nasty been with me for the second and third parts of that trip. I got about two good songs out of the whole escapade. A couple of those tunes were compared by Ringo Kidd to Nikki Sudden which is a high compliment in my world. “It’s just the truth in your eyes…” Both mine and Nasty’s ex wives dumped us after that failed mission to record our album that was supposed to be called “Born Again To Lose”. Crazy world. I still standby almost all our old songs from that era. Always haunted by the what if…’s…What if we would’ve finished those records, what if fans of say, Black Halos and The Hangmen and Jim Jones Revue got to hear those old songs fully fleshed out, etc etc It’s the stuff of a whole lotta heartbreak and tears.

 REV. PAUL S. CUNNINGHAM

I guess I made friends with the brimstone preachin’ cowboy Rev. years ago on social media and we’ve been keeping in touch for a long time now, we got a lot in common, really. I’ve always loved the real original, stand alone voices from the wilderness, he don’t really sound like no one but himself which is pretty fuckin’ cool if you ask me. Musically speaking, I guess there are some glints of Jo Dog’s elegant bluesy leads from way back in the “Graveyard Of Empty Bottles era”. I love the pianos on “Pictures & Gasoline”. Very deep and soulful cat, insanely talented. Do you like the Rolling Stones or Tom Waits? Like I told somebody in an e-mail, this is haunted and inspired songwriting. “Brothers Of The Darkness” is a gunfighter ballad or trail song from the bottom of the black bottle. I’m just gonna keep talkin’ about this character’s tunes cause I recognize him as one of the most remarkably gifted of my generations’ outlaw colleagues. That guitar solo in “Brothers Of The Darkness” is a thing of real subtle and profound beauty. His slide guitar playing is so Stonesy and the piano is beautiful.

“U.S. propaganda is so sophisticated that it convinces people that we’re bringing democracy to the world when we haven’t even brought anything that resembles a democracy to our own shores. The U.S. brings capitalism, militarism, and oligarchy to the world and calls it “democracy.” (-Ryan Knight)

ME I’M JUST A ROCKNROLL SINGER

Besides the so called new normal everyday hardships of parenting in deepest poverty, struggling to even just get by in a nosediving recession with jackedup prices on every. fucking. thing., my main problem is like, a cosmic sense of total dislocation, of being outta time, cause some of us discarded old exiles were Born To Rock. But like Iggy Pop told David Letterman about Andy McCoy, and David Lee Roth said about meeting Steve Vai in a police lineup after a bust at the after hours club he once owned, CLUB ZERO, you know, you really always, always, always, have to go to the Big Cities to find the capable sleazy guitarslingers who can provide for themselves and who have even HEARD OF all my biggest influences and nowadays, you know, there’s just no way for us working class paupers to ever pay the $5000 a month rents in NYC and L.A., or Seattle or Portland, ya know? I’m even struggling in the dead end faded ghost town. One of my biggest influences as a lead vocalist, along with Joe Strummer (RIP), Gio Vitanza (RIP), Tex Perkins, Stiv (RIP), and Texacala, was, of course, CLAUDE from SMACK. Man, I just love that cat, but of course, nobody’s ever heard of ’em outside of London, Helsinki, NY and L.A., and I never understood why their brand of cool as fuck untamed rocknroll never caught fire with a bigger audience, it kinda just makes me think that people are fucking stupid. I honestly have had multiple conversations with grown adults these past twenty years who wanna look me straight in the eye and dare tell me how great the new Green Day or Foo Fighters or Miley Cyrus or Beyonce album is. I can’t stand that garbage. Give me Claude, everytime. Make mine Claude and the 69’s! If you ask me, this is what rocknroll sounds like-not that namby pamby trustfund bullshit tribute rock they all dish out nowadays. The last band I heard that had even like a glint of the raw soul and desperate animal magnetism of Smack was SILVER from Norway and even they were like twenty years ago. But yeah, they had some real magic, too! I was never quite so wild about 69 Eyes vampire-metal but I definitely did love their early Mr. Sleazy 45 they sent me to review in my fanzine when I was I dunno, 22? I liked their earlier raunchy first record sleazepunk dive bar stuff far better than their latter day epic productions that sound more like money and less like street. But anyways…yeah. SMACK. And SILVER.

SILVER had something special, man, a perfect vocalist, exceptional lyrics, near perfect music, they were like a swirl of the Lords, the Ultras, the Original Suffering Bastards, and Smack all rolled into one! Man, I love that band! In the immortal words of our beloved forefather, Chuck Berry, “it’s gotta be rocknroll music if you wanna dance with me…”

Man, ya see so many unwell human beings walkin’ around talking just mad UFO jibberish to themselves nowadays. Sure, some of them are on the crystal meth or newfangled zombies of death drugs, but so, so many more of ’em are suffering from mental illness and there is no help for them. The establishment has designed this slippery slope, so people who are mentally ill are most often mass incarcerated in abusive, sadistic prisons, or left outside in the elements to rot and die. I even see some property owners getting The Business from a corrupt smalltown city hall that’s in bed with like ten rich people, so they have decided to sic these code enforcers on all the poor people, to make them sell their property, drive ’em out, or bleed their resources fighting the gentrifiers. It’s sad. I know a couple of sad and lonely old single people who dwell inside these rickety little metal boxes who have to listen to the builder’s insanely loud Mexican music all day, big machines moving dirt, and bam bam bam hammering, and when they complained to city hall, the soccer mom figureheads they seat behind some table to give the illusion that “educated women” are calling the shots, they sent in the code enforcers and kkkops to fuck with the hermits. and hassle the kindly old new age painter lady for having an artful frontyard with blue bottles and wire and found object decorations on her fence frowned upon by fatcat real estate assholes. It’s fucking sad to see the stress all these poor retirees have been put under by the crooked Mister Burns people from the golf club and their know nothing shitlib winebox shitfaced sock puppets, who just rubber stamp anything that some moneybags developer calls “progress”, even if it makes no sense. I hadda take a job as a mover and almost got bit by a black widow spider that was hiding among the boxes with three inches of dirt I was relocating from one lady’s spare house to another of her spare houses. It’s deep puddles rainy today, I’m kinda dreading going back to work later this afternoon. More spiders, cobwebs, perilously HEAVY antique furniture, heavy boxes of expensive art books. Woman telling me how she shitcanned seven trucks full of her parent’s belongings. My girlfriend got bit up by like a half dozen fire ants. We do what we gotta do for our kids.

Our primary physician had a stroke and became half paralyzed and is on permanent leave now, and if you talk about how or why it happened, in his forties, “just suddenly” people wanna silence and punish you, so now, you can only see nurse practitioners at the overbooked hicktown hospital, if you wanna loiter round for hours in rooms full of coughing old people, some of whom are not even able to prescribe, cause they aint got the credentials of the paralyzed guy. One of my family members needs new prescriptions because of their adolescent growth surge but his prescribing doctor moved his office to three hours away and our vehicle won’t make it, we made an appointment with a new physician and when the child was taken to an early morning appointment, which is a hardship for someone with his particular disability, they were told the doctor had arbitrarily cancelled the appointment, so meanwhile, the poor kid is having all kinds of erratic behavioral eruptions as a result of his medications being so inadequate and some of the resulting violent outbursts can be dangerous to his and his family’s safety and wellbeing. Dumb fucking middle class people believe that pills are the answer to everything, pils, pills, some shots, more pills, more pills, always more pills, some boosters, an “I VOTED TODAY” sticker, a pinkhat mach, some more pain pills, big medicine cabinets overflowing already with mama’s little helpers, cause they’ve seen ten billion commercials for every drug in the world on MSNBC and CNN but then when proper dosages are denied to patients by a clusterfuck smalltown hospital, it’s just tough luck. That’s all you will ever hear from the quack quack quacking petit booj on the hill. How YOU shoulda done this, or you shoulda done that. Shoulda gotten better health insurance, or shoulda owned a more reliable vehicle, should have married up or inherited privilege from their families the hard way, shoulda sued the school system, shoulda sued the doctors, shoulda gotten a fourth booster for science like DOCTOR JILL BIDEN who is sick with the plague, or blah blah, whatever. This conventional wisdom held by all the haves on the hills sometimes results in real tragic consequences like with our poor doctor, who took his medicine, did what he was told, and now he can’t perform his job, or move half his body. That’s fuckedup, and he can’t sue nobody. Tough shit. Same with my dead friend in the midwest, he took a nap after a second shot and never woke up again, too bad, tough titties-guess he shoulda bought bitcoin or shoulda volunteered to go to war with Russia, always something that he did wrong, according to the quack quack quacking tv watcher know it alls who think the Democrats are real. So ya gotta wonder what doctor worshipping shitlibs have to say to that guy, who can’t move half his body now, even though (!!!) he spent all those years in med school and his student loans probably still aint even paid off-what he shoulda done different. He was already complying with their preferred narrative, hut two hut two, and yes sir to Super Scientific Higher Up Expert Dr. Bill Gates and wee wee wee wee all the way home, every bit of it, went to med school, bought a big house, learned to golf, paid for insurance, obeyed The Man for science. Only one industry exists with a total immunity shield. He can’t sue the supposedly benevolent makers of certain warp speed “immunizations”. Tough shit, doctor, fuck you. Poor guy! Now we aint got no family doctor, but so long as somebody who was  already obscenely rich, is getting super duper extra rich, somewhere, and having smirking conversations with Emperor Klaus, about how they’re gonna have all kinds of new business opportunities in the near future, and laughing like twin Bond villains, that’s all the army ant tv watchers care about. They’re all strung out on the government pills.

So yeah it’s becoming a bit frightening as a pedestrian, just walking around this deadbroke town, you got all the angry, drunk driving, vroom vroom flatulent, big white truck pitbull cowboys driving 100 miles per hour on these winding river roads, their vicious dogs snarling out the passenger seat window. The Lake People in the golfcarts and three wheelers also speeding about as fast as they can, picking up ice for their beer coolers from the downtown ice machines, but it’s not quite so fast really. The embittered women who married their pitbulls and don’t believe in leash laws and think they can control their animals with their Georgia O’Keefe extra deluxe psychic fortune teller intuitive E.S.P. powers, the ninety pound fentanyl crazies who look like world war two victims, the toothless people with the shaven heads and broken window shields driving in lazy half lidded circles and trying to mad dog menace the peaceful passerby. You got the pink and red clad woman from TAOS who insults strangers on the sidewalk for existing. The pissed off oversized biker bearded dude who screams loudly to one of my neighbors about “revenge” all day. The hermit down the block in conflict with the kkkops over his rock garden landscaping choices and brokedown car ownership. The middleclass woman who was trying to sue to stop a bridge being built on her deadend street now becoming a target of kkkode enforcers but she already has a really perfectly neat and Iowa orderly yard, is ex military with money in the bank, so it’s harder for them to fuck with her. The suckup obedience yuppies of city hall are all helping pass fascistic Gates-Reset ordinances saying it is now legal for them to employ a private drone company to inspect homeowner’s private backyards and determine who can, or can not park R/V’s or cars behind high fences on their own properties. Some liberty. They have plans to confiscate people’s stuff if they don’t like it. That is insane to me. Even the most patriotic flag waving gung ho, military lovin’ Thank A Kkkop Republikkan KKKowboys gotta start seeing that’s something’s rotten with this particular city government. There are crazy, unhappy people yelling obscenities everywhere you roam. Some dickhead yuppie pricks banned an old lady with dementia from dancing with her elderly friends at the jackedup tourist trap bar here. They sortof say hi to me sometimes, mistaking me for some gentrification hipster, but I find it difficult to be civil to money grubbing gentrifiers with no compassion for the sick or the poor or the old or disabled. Fuck you, prick. Go back to Hipster City, this is a dead end desert ghost town full of predominantly poor widowers. Maybe you money whore, city slicker, get rich quick people are the ones who should be banned. Leave us alone. Here come the tech-tyrants and deep state faux woke, shady spook social engineers and thought police and squidgame mk ultra hip-pop bullshitters.

LET THE COWBOYS RIDE 

This is what the fanatical sports moms, preppie jocks and elitist admin thought me and my friends were like, but really, we were just lonely latchkey kids who were really, really into like, Cyndi Lauper, Psychedelic Furs, Billy Idol, and Echo & The Bunnymen, you dig? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wb0MXivyeuA A lotta eyeliner and hair gel. I think my dream, that I harangued a couple of my scrappy friends into believing in, for at least a few years, until eating canned beans and mostly living on beer in rundown ghetto, rodent infested apartments started losing it’s appeal and the parents were pressuring ’em all to go to go to school and shit, I wanted to be like, you know, The Clash, The Alarm, The Lords Of The New Church– a big haired bandido rebel gang fighting the power with poetry and sincerity and singalong choruses and big hollow body guitars, three chords and the truth. I was not fucking around, I’m still that, and I’ll be 53 in December. Steve Stevens guitar heroes, Pete Farndon bassists, Clem Burke style drummers apply within. Songwriting motherfucker wants to front dangerous outlaw punk band. Last of the Last of the Last of the Last.

Aint it a bitch how music imprints on you forever, even the cornier stuff you don’t necessarily like? Journey, for instance? “Send Her My Love…memories remain, send her my love…roses never fade…” There’s a video somewhere, of two of my craziest dead drinking companions, Mark and Adam, all dolled up like me in the feathers and furs, with one of my bombshell, crazy good times all the time, loudly yelling, yeehaw, hoarse voiced screaming wild stripper ex girlfriends singing “Separate Ways”. I look for it somedays cause lord I miss those brothers. Dead forever. Ugh! Ya know? In the sad, horrid, painful mornings, when I was in the fourth to eighth grades, I was forced to go to this dreadful, bullying, miserable, torturously mean, middle school in fuckedup fucking Ohio, radio DJ Ed Goble from WKKI “Ohio’s Best Rock, Broadcasting From The Western Ohio Branch Campus In Celina” would play Madonna‘s “Crazy For You” from the “Vision Quest” soundtrack and “Only The Young” by Journey, every morning before I had to go wait in the frontyard for the #24 bus in the snow with Tracey D. from across the street who hated me. I always got stuck sitting next to notorious booger picker, Musto. “You again, Musto”. Then, it was a three flights of stairs climb to the third floor music room in the 100 year old fucking dusty old building, assholes elbowing me on my way up, struggling to carry a big snaredrum case, I was just a scrawny pipsqueak like in those comicbook fifties Charles Atlas ads. 

     At Baptist boarding school, in deep Appalachia, Fat Jerry had a tiny A.M. radio we had to keep hidden from the older boy’s dorm snitch-patrol, cause all secular music was forbidden, and I’d hear another fucking syrupy Journey song, in my metal bunkbed at night, the horrible sap of “Faithfully”, and think of this older girl I had a crush on named Carol Harlowe. I hated depressing Bob Seger songs about being  a perpetually down on your luck, twice divorced, nowhere loser loitering around some stinky pool hall down on Main Street and John Cougar songs growing up, because I did not want to hear that authority always wins, I thought rocknroll songs should give people optimism that they COULD triumph over the corrupt powers that be, and back then, I absolutely could not “be myself” in those tank building “smalltowns” I grew up in. I wanted escapism, back then. Van halen, Adam Ant and Duran and Bowie and Prince. I like a lot of stuff other people seem to hate, like the Thompson Twins and even some Howard Jones and Nik Kershaw. It all reminds me of when my first real friends and I were just meeting each other out there in eighties Swatch Watch suburbia. As I got older, of course, I changed my mind about all those melancholy Amerikkkana balladeers from classic rock radio, the John Cougars and Tom Pettys, because my life had turned into one of those fucking battered and bruised, bad luck songs. “Runnin’ against the wind…”

“Wherever you are tonight, I wish you the best of everything in this world and honey I hope you find whatever you were lookin’ For…”

“She calls me baby, she calls everybody baby…it’s a lonely old night, but aint they all?” 

“stay on the streets of this town and they’ll be carvin’ you up, alright”

“big town’s got it’s losers, small town’s got it’s vices…”

Me and my ole lady talk sometimes about needing to become the stable and reliable presence for my children like you know my grandparents were for us. The people who stay together through the hard knock times and don’t change their phone number or chase any fadgadget latest thang bandwagons or move all the time. My smalltown grandfolks mostly raised me. They disapproved of my makeup, my nose ring, my early jailhouse tattoos, my dropping out, my many girlfriends, my underage drinking, all that kinda stuff, but the fridge was always full and I was always welcome, they had a bed in the basement and heat in the winter, hot showers and A/C in the summers. They always had a big garden that fed many neighbors and a deep freeze and many basement shelves full of stuff to feed a family of ten or twenty whenever my aunts or cousins, or kids and me felt like visiting. My grandfather would always take me on long car rides to look at cows and white buffalo and lecture me about how I needed to “learn computers” because the monopolies were going to destroy the mom and pops. Of course, he was right. He wanted me to become a car dealer and my compliant country clubbin’ golf lovin’  cousins who took over the business rather than me cause I could literally just not “play ball” drove it into the ground in just a couple of years. He died in a veteran’s home when my ex wife was breaking up with me and taking my kids across country without my permission, but she was rich and I was poor, plus she had the gender card which is better than any backstage pass. “Membership has it’s privileges” and as a member of the ruling class-she has The Master Card. All I got’s a hand fulla jokers. My protective WW2 vet grandfather’s sad passing was followed soon by my grandmother, broken hearted, hard drinking, much beloved aunt, many uncles, all their neighbors who I’d known all my life. My ex did not even bother to give me the message my mom left about the neighbor’s funeral I was expected to be a pallbearer at, too busy shopping for new properties with a crunchy granola, khaki clad, bachelor #2. I was sadder than I can express when their other daughters sold the house I grew up in, after their deaths and shitcanned so much of my grandparent’s lifetime of cherished objects in their rush to go on vacations and spend the inheritance on new properties and my cousin’s rich wife’s desire for More Stuff. Her dad was a doctor so even though my cousin was a car dealer, it’ll likely never be Good Enough. What kinda madness is this bullshit? Everywhere you look it is sourfaced sisters competing for the old people’s inheritance. My grandma died while my spouse was pregnant. Smalltown hospital almost killed my spouse with doctor refusing to see her forcing her to drive two hours to a better emergency room where they immediately performed an emergency appendectomy saving her and our baby, and the crooked smalltown hospital that had already sewn 13 bandages inside my grandmother during a botched surgery, they still send creditors after us, for our showing up, even though no service was provided other than some unqualified nurse telling us her ’bout to burst appendectomy as “probably just gas”, these capitalist pigs want us to PAY THEM $5000 for jeopardizing my wife and child’s lives. Thoroughly indoctrinated suckass suckups just wanna praise these evil tv doctors and Merck and Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson some more. I had to leave the Midwest, it was preposterously, insufferably, punishingly oppressive, if you aint some preppie golf playing motherfucker, which I am not. The Midwest is all about keeping us slaves in the itchy polyester uniforms and the wet aprons for minimum wage forty hours a week forever. Or mass incarcerated for non violent reefer offenses and once they get you in the system, you’ll be getting probation violated, fined, frisked, piss tested, spied on, and kept under heavy manners for the rest of your days, smalltown screws hounded several of my old friends into the grave. If you’re poor, all you get’s a hairnet, a timesheet, and a fuck you punch in the eye, just cause. You shoulda been a preppie golf playing motherfucker.

I LIVE BY THE RIVER…SOMEDAY A REAL RAIN’S GONNA FALL

The perpetually alarmist crazy hermit down the block is running around like Chicken Little or Noah, warning everybody we all need to rush down to the fairground in the nearby town to retrieve some emergency sandbags because they say there is gonna be seven inches of rain falling on the town this weekend and my part of town always floods, which is why is is sortof laughably extra ridiculous that the kkkops and kkkode enforcement spend so much time and town resources on badgering old hermits for having too many cars or rocks or old metal signs on their properties, cause this creepy local developer’s master plan to gentrify the field by the waste treatment center is a fool’s errand. I live in a 53 year old disintegrating leaky trailer a couple blocks from the river and the garage out back where I’ve stashed my few remaining souvenirs and possessions of sentimental value is doubtlessly gonna get soaking wet later today so I threw a tarp over the clothes rack and positioned some buckets underneath the holes in the ceiling from the sun warped wood. High winds blew off the shingles, the elements are becoming ever more brutal. Media fearmongers endlessly about carbon emissions while simultaneously propagandizing for the War Machine causing the harm and the exact same One Percent Shady Asshole Billionaires who fly around on private jets all day, fucking up the environment some more. So whenever these same evil fuckheads say they’re gonna somehow fix it, with their geoengineering, and mutated mosquitoes, and cloned lab meats, and GMO vegetables, and microchipped cashless society “FOR SCIENCE”, I kinda don’t believe them. We might be having to relocate in the near future and that seems fraught with a lot of work and worry, risk, and uncertainty, especially in immobilizing, high gas prices, jackedup groceries and preposterous rent, perilous times such as these, where every last tv programmed selfish propertarian asshole feels just not only entitled but almost obliged to overcharge the lowly slaves for ripoff rents like their higherup Vanguard and BlackRock Davos monopolist fascist techlords do. Mainstream headlines have just admitted that Bill Gates wrote much of the latest Biden administration legislature and while his corporate media,  P.R. puppets praise him and Biden all day, that can’t be real good news for any of us poor people at the bottom. 

JOE BIDEN I.R.S.

What d’ya think about Gropey Joe adding a million IRS agents, you know they said during their big profits Covid snatch n grab they wanted to be able to spy on all your transactions as a way of ushering in their cashless society Bill Gates and Klaus Schwab fascist reset bullshit, but a lot of people still think Pelosi and Schumer are some kinda proper and polite social justice champions since they did a photo op with the Kenta cloth, even though, they just relentlessly continue fucking over poor people and coup-ing whoever they want, in the words of Oligarchy hipster Elon Musk.

Way back when we discovered Steve Earle, I used to think he’d discover me cause we had some shit in common. Ha. Did not work out that way at all. Even the motherfuckers who KNOW pretend they don’t know. 

“The years long Russiagate investigation is responsible for ordinarily sensible people losing their minds. Hardly anyone recalls that the charge of collusion was actually disproven, that Robert Mueller only indicted for process crimes, such as those which occur when people let down their guard and talk to the FBI. Most Americans who know the name Paul Manafort think he was a Russian spy but don’t know that he went to jail for tax and bank fraud. Propaganda works very well when it is repeated over and over again.

Worse than the silly Trump inspired derangement is the way that those who call themselves left or progressive have chosen to defend federal law enforcement and bad legislation like the Espionage Act. The Espionage Act is a relic from the earliest days of the cold war, and Woodrow Wilson’s infamous Palmer Raids which targeted the left for persecution and prosecution. Barack Obama used it more than all previous presidents combined in order to prosecute journalists who published what the state didn’t want us to know. As for the FBI, its Counter Intelligence Program, COINTELPRO, created dissension in the liberation movement, targeted individuals for prosecution, spied on Martin Luther King and told him to commit suicide, and killed Fred Hampton and Mark Clark among others. The FBI continues to use informants to entrap Black people in phony terror cases.” (-Margaret Kimberly at Black Agenda Report)

DEATH IS EVERYWHERE

   Man, two of my old goth girlfriends are appearing in a movie someone is making about the midwestern punk scene in the 1980’s. When I think of Depeche Mode and New Order and The Cure and Peter MurphyEinstürzende Neubauten logos painted in silver on black, dry ice, and all that eighties new wave music from 120 Minutes, I think of them. We were pen pals for years, our envelopes decorated with Morrissey and Martin Gore lyrics and Black Sharpie Spider Illustrations, and me and my other rocker dude friends we’d try to travel to Ft. Wayne in our extra shitty vehicles to visit them every Sunday night we could at a goth bar called Seventh Level to see bands like Die Kreuzen or Defenestration. “I’ve got to get to you first…before they do, it’s just a question of time, before they get their hands on you, and make you just like the rest, I’ve got to get to you first…” Always a real cool time, a dozen rosaries and fishnet and safety pins, underage booze in the parking lot, leather jackets, cigarettes, too much eye makeup and shyly holding hands. Dancing to a Robert Smith lookalike named Terry who spun like 12 inch dance remixes off Ministry and Specimen and shit. One of those chicks used to get drunk on vodka and cry a lot about her dead friends and loved ones, end up vomiting…JUST LIKE ME. I used to think we were soul mates. Vomit wet kiss! Hoo hoo!  Me and those punk girls were were all bonded by our grief related depressions and mutual appreciations of hard liquor. One loved Blixa Bargeld, the Thompson Twins, and anything black, androgynous or rebellious and defiant. The other one loved Prince and Iggy and Arcadia and became my dearest most trusted advisor and confidante for years and lovingly made me beautiful handsewn new romantic clothes for the stage that I’d always end up vomiting on from pre show jitters. Lotta vomiting back then cause those girls and their frenzied, combat booted Ft. Wayne punk crew were hardcore partiers, and me and the lads we kept like a full bar on the front porch of my band house until the hellion motorcycle cowboy moved in and initially sorta became our road manager, before eventually being promoted to Future Cobalt Stargazer In Training. Those two chicks were the twin queens of the scene the movie is about. I can’t wait to see it-one of ’em’s flying back into Indiana tonight to get filmed for the documentary and the other one’s already filmed her part. I wonder whatever happened to black leather Vickie, another fishnet legged ultra vixen who I can still see so brightly in my mind…I can see her hairdo, her vivid smile, red lipstick, pack of Dunhills, maybe the scent of cloves…I seem to remember I had a series of these fast forwarding, fleeting intimacies with various Ft. Wayne punkers-all us outsider kids would connect on the sidewalk and get close like almost instantly only to never see each other again, just a fading memory of the briefest of vodka blurry goth parking lot deeply cherished moments in the car while quoting Ian Curtis, immediate soul baring kinda friendships. Those were better times. I got along smashingly with Hope Nichols from Fetchin’ Bones-she had a real Janis Joplin heartfelt soul singer appeal, we were like peas in a pod. We saw so many good and exceptionally entertaining bands play there. Pixies first album, Flaming Lips first album. Trash Brats first cassette. Primitive Baptist Church playing Modern Lovers covers. Elvis Hitler, Chainsaw Kittens, on and on and on and on, which side are you on?

I was supposed to be in a couple of movies that never came out. One was about the English rock group Thee Hypnotics who I met their first night in the USA, USA! Where I live now, there are almost no women and very few young people-some nutty supposedly psychic new age pitbull widows, and Miner Fortyniner Ok Corral lookin’ old ranchers, grizzled cowboys, weird hermits, rightwing survivalist militias. You know the weirdest part is how these old crazies give me a LOT less shit than any of the safespace shitlibs of the Pacific Northwest, or ignorant middle class fratboy fauxhipsters of the flyover states. Mostly, people don’t even see me, I’m almost invisible here. I carry a stick on the trails, cowboy hat, nobody is trying to really make me shut the fuck up, like they always did in privileged gentrification enclaves where the local gentry all inherited rental properties and hipster popularity businesses, so they become real fanatical about guarding their turf, making sure no lowlife outsiders cast a shadow on their Fauntleroy Limelite, Suck-Pop derivative, Parents Paid-For Fame Thrones. 

   People I knew are always dyin’ now. Feels like a graveyard. I wanted to get stamps to send you a postcard, but the post office closes at noon. A rainy Thursday, ya know since I got lockedout of social media by the pro war deep state, I don’t really hear much from nobody. Most mornings I don’t even get an email except from like the Sunglasses Hut. I worry about my wife and kids, my teeth, my mom, my friends, and the future. Noooo future for me. Bill Gates and Jamie Dimon and Joe Biden’s weapon making friends are havin’ a ball, though. A creepy Eyes Wide Shut ball, where the servants all have to wear covid masks, and the zillionaires roll around naked in their filthy lucre. The media still do stories everyday pretending like somebody is still investigating the Jeffrey Epstein island but only the Maxwell chick is lockedup-none of the ruling class jet set predator male millionaires.

Kim Iversen: What I Would Have Asked Fauci If I’d Been Allowed to Interview Him • Children’s Health Defense (childrenshealthdefense.org)

IF EVERYONE IS KING THEN NO ONE IS

The concept of “wealth hoarding” has gained traction in the wake of the Occupy movement and the Bernie Sanders presidential campaigns, the idea being that billionaires are amassing treasure like mythical dragons in the same way someone with a hoarding disorder amasses newspapers or clothes.

It’s an understandable way of looking at the problem. The capitalist class is indeed grabbing up a greater and greater percentage of the wealth that’s being generated by the working class, and it just doesn’t make sense that someone would need billions of dollars when you can only drive one car at a time, wear one pair of pants at a time, eat one meal at a time, etc.

For normal people, the idea of wealth is associated with security, so once your family’s needs are met and their future is secure it’s hard to understand the impulse to keep amassing wealth far beyond that point without it being driven by some kind of compulsive neurosis. The fact that they pour so much money and energy into manipulating political systems to ensure they aren’t forced by taxation to share more of their wealth with the public makes them look even more like compulsive hoarders.

But this notion of vast wealth as a hoarding behavior misses the mark. And no, it isn’t because billionaires are awesome beneficent job creators whose wealth is being used by banks to grant people loans for homes and businesses and making the world a wonderful place to live.

It doesn’t work to think of the very rich as wealth hoarders because what they are doing has very little in common with the behavior of a compulsive hoarder. A compulsive hoarder gains nothing from their behavior, which generally ends up being self-destructive and socially alienating. It costs them everything, and gives them nothing. Their behavior is born of neurosis, and is entirely irrational.

The so-called wealth hoarders are not amassing wealth at the expense of others out of neurosis, and the motives driving their behavior are perfectly rational. They’re just a lot more depraved and a lot more uncomfortable to think about.

The ruling class continually extracts wealth from the public not so that they can become wealthier than they already are, but to keep the public from having that wealth. They’re not worried that they’ll be unable to support their needs in the future if they don’t extract another billion dollars, they just understand that the wealthier everyone else gets, the less their own wealth matters. They’re not wealth-hoarding, they’re wealth-obstructing.

Wealth is a zero-sum game, as is its good friend power. The more power everyone else has, the less power our current rulers would have over us. This is why so much energy goes into ensuring that votes have as little effect as possible on the operations of the state and making sure everything stays the same no matter what the public wants.

Imagine if ordinary people started having as much influence over the direction human civilization will take as war profiteers, oil tycoons, globalized wage slavers and Silicon Valley plutocrats. Imagine if the working class had enough disposable income to begin funding grassroots political campaigns, building their own media networks, or even funding think tanks and NGOs to advance their own interests like plutocrats do today. Imagine if everyone could afford to work less and relax more, and finally start learning about what’s really going on in the world.

Wealth is meaningless if everyone is wealthy. Power is meaningless if everyone has power. The kings of our day have a vested interest in keeping everyone poor and powerless, because if everyone is king, then no one is king.

This is why our status quo systems work the way they work, and this is why you see a convergence of interests from such groups as corporate plutocrats, plutocrat-owned politicians and media, the arms industry, and military and intelligence agencies. These groups all have a vested interest in preserving the status quo and the ability to put that agenda in place, so they’ve fallen into a natural, de facto alliance with each other toward that end.

Workers around the world: lost $3.7 trillion in the pandemic
Billionaires around the world: gained $3.9 trillion in the pandemic

It’s the biggest one-year wealth transfer in history, yet somehow barely anyone is talking about it.

— Dan Price (@DanPriceSeattle) March 25, 2021

It’s why we’ve seen a historic upward transfer of wealth during the Covid pandemic, with billionaires raking in trillions while ordinary people struggle with unemployment and soaring prices. And it’s why that transfer of wealth has been happening for decades since long before Covid. In a system where money is power and power is relative, a ruling class naturally emerges which needs to suppress the wealth and power of its subjects in order to continue to rule.

Rulers do not historically give up their rule voluntarily, so we can expect this continual pattern of wealth obstruction via wealth extraction to continue until people get tired of being kept poor and powerless by those who benefit from their poverty and disempowerment and use the strength of their numbers to force the emergence of a more equitable system. We can also expect our rulers to do everything in their power to prevent this from happening, including propagandizing the public into accepting the status quo and believing that anything better is impossible.

Drastic change in the not-too-distant future does seem to be inevitable, though, if only because we’re headed toward environmental collapse or nuclear winter if we don’t rise to the revolutionary occasion first. Humanity’s self-destructive patterning is in a race with our better angels, and right now it’s anybody’s race.(-Caitlin Johnstone)

THE GOOD OLE FLAME

   Growing up in this crazy world, me and a few of my lifetime’s closest friends and much loved allies had so much fuckedup shit happen to us, it affected us all differently, but we were all altered, permanently impacted by those shared experiences. Some of ’em are on different paths, different trips, different realities, different frequencies, now. I spoke to one of my most loved friends on the phone about a week ago. He’s real serious now. Has a lot of responsibility. I could still hear some faint traces of the person I remember, though. Another old favorite, he’s still the same like in the Bob Seger song, “Still The Same”-just looks a lot older, not quite beyond recognition, just ravaged by all the decades of improbably rough livin’ and the road years take their toll on one’s appearance, but no other discernible change is present, whatsoever. Might as well be 1987. His primary source of joy was always louder music, harder highs, faster car speeds, more women, his drug of choice was always just more. I probably relate to him the most. We can’t really collaborate or work together like we used to, because even though he is still a wild wolf, full blast and never surrender all night ramblin’ man, footloose and fancy free, never settled down at all, not even for a day, I have had to put my children’s welfare and well-being first, for a long time, there’s not been that space or surplus for late night moon howlin’ like there used to be. I can’t just be lightin’ off for the horizon no more, like  we used to when he remembers, me n him on a single bicycle, in the snow, fleeing some ragingl, irrationally drunk woman who was throwing bottles at us like Carrie Fisher in the Blues Brothers or some shit…and man, oh man, did we ever have some times together. I ain’t seen him in about fifteen, maybe even sixteen years, since my old lady was pregnant with our teenage kid. Had to tell ‘im we’re too broke and hardup to have any visitors nowadays. We’re in the hard struggle. Barely gettin’ by, our cupboard is bare, no free beer party here. We can hardly afford toilet paper or razors, all my socks have holes in ’em. Some of the others, ya know I carry ’em all around with me, everyday, year in and year out, like a bag of bricks burdensome heavy weight from the past, but I can not really relate to them at all anymore, and my endeavor is to sortof emotionally release them, not need nuthin’ from ’em, not look for some kinda “everybody loves a happy ending” reunion with ’em, no more. Sometimes, I can’t really help it, though. I’m always dreamin’, always was a dreamer, always tried to make it all happen for everybody. Rocknroll and the good times, you know what I mean. “and you’re still tryin a have fun…”

Life is too short, as Peggy Lee sang, “might as well break out the booze and have a ball”. The ruling class billionaires who wrecked the environment, and economy, and any hope for  a decent standard of living or quality of life here, who do these richman for profit wars for no noble reason, they have all the bioweapons labs and pharmaceutical company stock and manufacture more fuckin hightech weapons and surveillance tech to control us all, if not kill us outright, they don’t have to do any of that, they choose to do all that because they are sociopathic tyrants. I noticed that some of my other online columns are being blocked somehow. For us it’s a big fuck you, for the self congratulating greedhead Fauntleroys podcasting live from their oversized white mama mansions high on the hills, for them, 

it’s like an endless party…

DAN DENTON BLUE COLLAR GOSPEL HOUR

Up early on a rainy day, spazzy cats are annoying me by loudly and recklessly running around all crazy and knocking stuff offa counters like they got some sugar spike from their food. Nothing really goin’ on with me. I hear all the neighbor’s dogs barking because some registered sex offender McMansion building fly by night developer, his ten dollar an hour minions, plus big shiny vehicle code enforcement and the kkkops and surveyors keep creeping around in our back alleyway every morning and will not tell the home owners why, all we know is they’ve been targeting some older hermit hoarder for having too much found object art on his property and stacks of rocks and cactus and old vintage metal signs and shit. The McMansion builder creepster and his real estate cronies imagine they can gentrify the waste treatment floodzone area. That’s all the excitement we got here in the dead dull desert. Rich people keep displacing the poor, while the middle class shrug and look the other way and read happy headlines about how Bill Gates is writing their puppet politician’s big business benefitting shitty policies that they hawk as some kinda “BFD” victory for the environment or the poor, but it’s always all fucking total bullshit-you will always know it’s an extra heap of bad bullshit, whenever they think they should bring classy droner Obama back outta his plantation mansion to help sell some fuckedup shit. Like he did when the professional athletes wanted to go on strike to protest kkkops killin’ all the black people everyday, or when the politicians of Michigan helped poison Flint, or when they wanted to rebrand Bush/Cheney fabricated, imperialist “war on terror” as hip and progressive, or when BP dumped all that oil into the Gulf. Shit’s real bad when they call in their secret weapon phony baloney Obama to make all those dense NPR listening, middle class people feel good. Mostly the masses we call the shitlibs stay exclusively focused on consumerism, acquisition, vanity brand building, and boring and tedious old reignited culture war diversions. 

    My teenager was so super stoked and excited about the finale of “Better Call Saul” and the trailer for the new season of “Cobra Kai” all day yesterday, he stayed up all night in nervous anticipation. I got some kinda digital microphone with a good echo on it and am hoping to get my old lady to help me rerecord an old song I rewrote with it. Can’t do anything like that when the kid is awake, though. Still astounds me how so many piss pond music scenesters are always so willing and able to divert so many funds and resources to propping up all the same old/same old, say nothing, so what, imitator franchise clone, trust fund suburbanite, middle class hipsters who don’t even really care about music or have anything to say, they just throw their having a fake band and some bullshit cd’s somebody else paid for, on to their already toppling towers, their special privilege, prestige and property piles, stackedup in the spare rooms of their mama mansions, I find them worse than appalling, they’re like these insatiable Narcissistic Little Jared Kushner/Hunter Biden motherfuckers, but with Nirvana t shirts. So yeah, fuck yeah, man. I’m still depressed about all that shit, trying not to go back to cigarette smoking. I looked in on my buddy Dan the blue collar poet from Toledo, who I don’t get to interact with as much, since being purged from social media by Zuckbot censorers. Aint he somethin’? Not only is he a fantastic writer and kindred spirit, but he’s a right the fuck on, working class hero, courageous union man, been working in factories in the Midwest for decades. I really feel for him, cause those fucked up, dehumanizing factories really wore out and killed summa my old homeboys. I lasted less than a day(!!!) when my stepdad pulled strings with one of his golf buddies to get me a job at the rubber plant, the one where the guitarist of the local Metallica coverband lost his hand. I could not drive the forklift which was the cherry, sought-after, prestigious spot the other workers preferred, and they all wanted to kill me already, cause just walking up the mile long sidewalk from the parking lot, the hillbillies had mistaken me for a chick and embarrassed themselves with some misplaced catcalls and wolf whistles, cause way back then, I was about 27 I guess, I still had my last good Johnny Thunders shag haircut with the razor cut bangs and shit and a chick had broken up with me for some  popular dude and I was so depressed about it I dropped like thirty pounds instantly, almost overnight, so I suppose from far away, I would have appeared significantly less butch hetero-masculine than all the old workers. So yeah I got truck loads of compassion for Dan Denton, we lived in some of the same kinda dead end, no hope, dream killin’, white trash hell holes. If you love Bukowski, check out Dan’s books. He’s on Punk Hostage Press. And Oh Yeah, If you see Iris, tell her I said hello.

ROCK PRESS IS DEAD IN USA USA

They talk about the year that punk broke but it was really the year they broke punk. I do not consider corporate Alternative or Mickey Mouse lapdancers punk, at all. Fuck that Foo Fighters phony fucking unlistenable bullshit. Yungblud, Avril Lavigne, Machine Gun Kelly, Lil Nas X, that’s some fuckin toxic manufactured bullshit from the pit. It’s been proven how Rolling Stone and Spin are controlled opposition operated by the usual assortment of Langley spooks and pissedoff ex/fake/bullshit depopulation and police atate agenda-promoting shitlib mouthpieces of the Davos ruling kkklass. Got Mines and Airbandb owners don’t wanna know what’s really happening out here where the wild winds blow, they just love the comforting, soothing tones of fucking NPR and Democracy Now, even though it’s all been hijacked, infiltrated and weaponized by the donor class and billionaire secret society oligarchs. There really aint that much Real Rocknroll to really write about in USA, USA, nowadays. Think about it-there’s no real underground anymore, it costs too much, only people making music that aint controlled are the same old dogshit rich people. Of course I yearn ever so fondly for my long lost eighties when there was so much good new music being made, the news stands had like twenty different print magazines about rocknroll every month and that aint even counting like the teenybopper mags of black music mags. Fuck Rolling Stone. I like Matt Taibbi but they never even stood up for Michael Hastings, their own writer who was assassinated by the secret police for embarrassing a Democrat and a general.

“You have to give Democrats a little credit here for conditioning their followers to think they’re actually fighting “fascism” while kicking third parties off ballots, taking even more corporate money than the GOP, and passing the highest military budget in history. You delivered for the military industrial complex, Big Oil companies, Wall Street, and the ruling class. U.S. under Biden & Democrat-led Congress: ✅ Passed biggest military budget in history of $840 billion/year ✅ Passed a fake Climate Bill that expands fossil fuels ✅ Provoking war with China & Russia The party is a well-oiled propaganda machine for capitalism & imperialism.” (-Ryan Knight)

WHEN I WAS A KID & THE PMRC FANATICS & CROOKED JUVIE JUDGES WERE BOOTCAMPING KIDS FOR HAIRSPRAY & BLACK T SHIRTS

At least we had the Cutting Edge Happy Hour and Headbanger’s Ball-ya know? The director of the CIA’s kid Miles Copeland managed his brother’s band, the Police and ran our favorite record label, I.R.S. Records who somewhat suspiciously signed all our favorite bands-The Go-Go’s, The Alarm, The Fleshtones, Bangles, Three O’Clock, etc etc Weren’t The Cramps and Concrete Blonde and Wall Of Voodoo even on that label? My memory aint what it should be, we used to party quite a bit back in the 80’s. The great and wonderful PETER ZAREMBA memorably hosted the Sunday night show that introduced a lot of Midwesterners to The Replacements and Mary Chain and Love & Rockets and REM and Alex Chilton, it was so glorious watching Peter’s improv skits filmed at Boardner’s on Cherokee my old street, I think, and showing us all these whacky interviews with people like Lone Justice, Zodiac Mindwarp and The Pogues and shit. What do kids today get? A lotta bullshit. Nikki Minaj and Taylor Swift. When we had a cable access tv show in Boston in the early 90’s, the director may have been thinking about camp horror movies and robot toys and sexy vampire girls, but me, I was channeling “The Young Ones” and Peter Zaremba’s after hours, blue whale guzzlin’, fun lovin’ hijinks on the Happy Hour!

James Stevenson “The Shape Of Things To Come”

.theshapeofthings…Whatever you may think of James Stevenson’s gorgeous wife, you have to admit he is one of the coolest guitar players in the world and plays in almost everyone of the best enduring bands. You know how drummer Danny Fury played in Lords Of The New Church, Rogue Male, Anita Chellemah, Dogs D’Amour, Sham 69, Vain, and TANGO PIRATES??? Similarly, James Stevenson’s played in Chelsea, Generation X, Gene Loves Jezebel, The Alarm, Glen Matlock & The Philistines, and the International Swingers.
He’s made a name for himself as a writer with a book and many contributions to professional guitar magazines under his belt. This E.P. is a promotional teaser designed to energize the worldwide fanbase already eagerly anticipating his forthcoming full-length, entitled, “EVERYTHING’S GETTING CLOSER TO BEING OVER”. It’s slick, world-class rocknroll reminiscent of Duran Duran, Power Station, Psychedelic Furs, or even Mick Jagger’s better solo albums.
I wish I knew someone in my hometown who still played guitar like this, I’d start a band of my own with them. It’s dark, swanky, and ripples with the esteemed talents of Stevenson and friends, an all star cast of pros including various former members of Spandau Ballet and the Sex Pistols. The guitars are awesome, in league with Mick Ronson, Billy Duffy, K Bombay, Derwood Andrews. Reminds me of living in NYC in the big 80’s, walking down 8th Street in the dawn’s early light. Beautiful vocals, he’s backed by the Sex Pistellettes-Maggi Ronson, Elizabeth Westwood, and Tracie Hunter. He’s effin great at what he does, if you like flawless, epic glam rock ala Generation X and Mott The Hoople, you’re sure to love “Suzi’s Problem” with it’s hypnotic and decadent guitar playing reminiscent of all your faves from the Cult to Billy Idol. This lot are members of the last class of real rocknroll dynamos who are still able to make a living performing and generating beautiful music for the masses. I duff my hat to all of ’em. Fantastic. I think he’s currently on tour with International Swingers. Catch ’em live when they play your town!/Anguish Young.
