“The House has just passed the largest war budget in US history at over 850 BILLION DOLLARS. Only 80 members voted against it. Where are our priorities? More money for death and destruction while millions are struggling to survive.” (-CODE PINK FOR PEACE)

“There are differences between Democrats and Republicans in the sense that there’s a difference between punches and kicks. In a kickboxing fight you don’t strategize to be punched so you don’t get kicked, you strategize to KO the one opponent who’s doing the punching and kicking. There’s no valid reason to hitch your wagon to the Democrat-aligned faction in their partisan agendas against the Republican-aligned faction. They’re not doing anything helpful or real. They’re just having friendly tickle fights over the steering wheel of empire. The Democratic Party-aligned mainstream political faction is not functionally different — or indeed even separate from — the Republican Party-aligned mainstream political faction, and it’s crazy how many well-intentioned socialists don’t see this.” (-Caitlin Johnstone)

“If Sanders had decided to defend a progressive agenda he would have had more power than Manchin. He has proven to be a sheepdogger as Bruce Dixon said and nothing else. I feel for those who believed in him.” (-Ajamu Baraka)

“We’re supposed to believe one is slightly less evil. That’s the whole game. Americans have no idea their government is the most corrupt, evil & murderous nation on earth. They can’t even begin to wrap their minds around the amount of corruption in $856 Billion of war spending.” (-Jimmy Dore)

Remember this the next time a bridge fails or a highway washes out in your neighborhood, or part of the 1960s electrical grid goes out, or an airport has to be shut down for safety. Your taxes fund the Empire.” (-Fnordly)

This barely gets a passing comment from the doyens of the American liberal chattering classes which tells me how useless and complicit they are.” (-Lampintheedark)

COMATONES FAN CLUB FOREVER


Our friend Rick used to say he might release an in depth compilation of all the Comatones stuff on DVD someday but I feel like he gave up the ghost or something caue we were talkin’ about that way back when I wrote for Hit List magazine and that was half a lifetime ago. So yeah I don’t care too much for any of those fake Orange County corporate punk bands or heavy metal namebrands doing their forever tours. I can’t even see how some of ’em manage to milk the same three songs for forty five years but what do I know? All my favorite bands are usually ignored or forgotten, but I keep on loving them just the same. Aside from MAYBE the Beasts Of Bourbon, the COMATONES are my favorite rocknroll band and have been for many years. I met Gio and Divo when I was workin’ on the Sunset Strip, they had on some really cool like patchwork leather jackets from the sixties and like bolero pants and concho belts. I was like whoa, farout man. They were like two twin Jim Morrisons. Nice guys, I liked ’em instantly. I was having rent problems, paycheck problems, girl problems, pedestrian problems and going into seizures problems so I never really got to hang around those guys unfortunately but their big supporters Larry and Tom used to actually go out of their way and make it a point to send me a cassette tape of every new Comatones demo and I’d hype ’em in my fabulous fanzine that only about 25 people read. My buddy Nick made me a cd burn of some old Romeo Cowboy songs and I keep it in the cd player, ya know it’s my go-to on the extremely rare occassion when I get to slip away for a half an hour, and play some loud music. I love the motherfuckin’ Comatones. I don’t really even see the point in discussing many other bands that came after them, I think they said it all and did it all, and the general public were just stupid, and being intentionally poisoned and dumbed down and miseducated and sadly trained by

demonic muzak biz industry dickheads to like awfulshite like Korn and Kid Rock. Man, that’s not my fault-that whole world of warped festivals and nu metal, rap metal, industrial metal, monster mask mook metal, none of that has anything to do with rocknroll. Rocknroll sounds like the Comatones. What if Jim Morrison sang for the Ny Dolls?

BEING RICH MEANS NEVER HAVING TO SAY YOU’RE SORRY

Everybody’s still mad at Sebastian Bach for the stupid and needlessly reckless shit he did in his superfame twenties, the homophobic t shirt, throwing that glass bottle at a girl’s eyes, but part of me always thought he was doing all that dumb shit to score tough guy cred with his screechy idol, Waxl Rose. I loved “Night Train”, “Mister Brownstone”, “It’s So Easy”, and “Move To The City” as a wayward teen strugggling to escape from the clutches of a corrupt and unholy school to prison pipeline and abusive juvenile corrections sytem in a smalltown tankplant hellhole. Oh yeah, and ESPECIALLY, “It’s So Easy” , I really loved that one cause growing up, I’d always been hated from a young age by dumb motherfuckers who never even knew me, they were just driven to crazy rage that some pretty girls liked me, I was smarter than the sporto lynchmbobs, and refused to get a golf shirt, feathered in the middle Hardy Boys haircut and lobotomy to be more like them. I really initially saw those Indiana Guns as kindred spirits. Maybe Izzy was, but by the time that Waxl started writing all his songs about wanting to beat up fans who took his picture, his supermodel girlfriends, and journalists who did not treat him precisely like the groupies under the table at the Rainbow Bar & Grill, it was pretty clear to me this guy was too much of a dumb, power seeking, typical corrections guard redneck to ever again be confused for a ginger Mike Monroe-ya know? He was a pretty big disappointment. Maybe not as bad as Bono, but bad enough that I was no longer interested in hearing his Nazareth covers Dylan bullshit, really, I mean their “Sympathy For The Devil” made me cringe and Jane’s Addiction were already doing it way better. So yeah full disclosure is I really believed in Guns N Roses when I was sixteen and seventeen, still got at least one well ripped Circus magazine pinup of Izzy and Axl taped to my wall in the cold garage. It reminds me of the time of my life when it felt like for one brief shining moment, I had a chance of escaping a life of fast food drudgery and malls and church on time and court ordered stupid human tricks involving urine tests and being on probation forever cause Judge Judy says white trash males all need to be working, on the clock, scrubbing those urinals for minimum wage, or incarcerated in Gitmo-patriotic abuse gulags, and forced to labor for less than slave wages, forever, Amen. For a minute, way back in 87-89,  we had something, a way out, a band. Some protest songs, girls who made us clothes, famous people saying we should “Move To The City”. Seemed like the kids were united. It did not last long. All the people from middle class backgrounds got soft overnight and yearned for the hot tubs, grills, gas cards and free cable of their easy livin’ mama moolah white family homes in deepest suburbia. A couple of the poor guys were so traumatized by her fuckedup upbringings, that when they saw their chance to make it out, even if it meant breaking up the band, or abandoning the teenage dream, they went for it, married up or went to college, never regretted it, and never looked back and part of me ain’t mad at ’em, to borrow a phrase from Tupac Shakur. About ten of my old rocker friends and one beautiful Depeche Mode girlfriend joined the fucking army. One guy killed somebody and went to jail, he used to be the soundman for summa my former bandmate’s bands. About five of the old crew were murdered, several suicides-mostly, the people who stayed in that torturous place working at factories or gas stations, getting busted again and again for DUI, all that bullshit the sytem does to keep the poor in line. They never get off probation, just keep forkin’ money over to the Man all their days, so yeah, too many of ’em were found dead. Here we are thirty five years later, Axl Rose issues some fake apology to an older woman with black n blue bruises who he busted in the face, while throwing his micstand in the crowd. If you’re a rich guy, people always wanna sue you and get a piece of your fortune, just cause the world is full of scammers and I get that, and this guy’s caused havoc in the past with his crazy behaviors and rage issues and provoked riots and gotten people killed in the frontrow sea of music festival bodie, so I guess he aint got it in him to really experience any sincere regret about harming some lady fan, instead, he goes on his superfame platform, barking about how she should’ve known about his thirty year long mic throwing ritual “tradition”, but since she’s complained to the press, she has ruined it for everybody now, and henceforth, he pledges the firm will no longer pass out picks or shirts ormerch or anything from the stage ever again and it’s all her fault. Axl’s the real victim, you see, she shoulda taken her bruises and thanked him. Rockstars always leverage their superfame against any critics. Emperor’s New Clothes look an awful lot like Korn’s old clothes. That’s what we mean when we say we hate rockstars, or rockstars suck. 

We aint talkin about Tex Perkins or Texacala Jones, or Jim Jones or Gio Vitanza. We’re talkin’ about Me Show babies and aspirant kings on borrowed thrones. I can’t stand any of ’em. Certainly never liked the grungers. Money always, always, always corrupts absolutely, they all lose any ability to empathize with the dirty poors, the dishwashers and riffraffs and unspecials, it’s all about their fucking worship me as a richman egotrip and who needs that shit? Not me, man. I remember laughing when he still had that Chinese Democracy Band, or whatever that shit was, before Duff and Slash came back and they were charging people obscene prices for t shirts and handshakes-not with Axl mind you, but you could buy a $500 fan club package and shake hands with one of his no name employees who helped him perform covers of songs he wrote with GUNS N ROSES, the band, before they became the brand. I tried to like that generic formulaic “Hard Skool” shit-I really did. I liked that Ricahard Fortus guy’s work with Richard Butler in Love Spit Love. I liked Tommy in the Replacements. Mostly, though, anything to do with make a buck capitalism, barking blowhard megalomaniacs in mansions firing people, sports, redneck violence, bullying, the NFL, lawsuits, lawyers, bodyguards, spiritual advisors, badly screeched overplayed covers, glorifying the powerful, bitching about the powerless, that’s the Murkkkan mainstream way-the hot garbage culture of abuse and gaslighting, winner takes all, law of the jungle, might makes right, never sincerely saying you’re sorry for anything, like George Bush-ya know? That’s war machine garbage, not my jam at all. I’m into rocknroll. Izzy said, “Bullshit, they did not want to split the loot equally. Moving on.” I moved on a long time ago. The Heatmeiser is into money, power, and punching people. I’m into like, real rebellion and people who can write songs. I tried watching some heavy metal doc called “Celebrate The Chaos” or something, but about halfway through it flipped into a Duff and Dr. Drew “Just Say No” anti drug, partying is bad but real estate is good commercial, like an Oprah episode, wow, was that ever a drag, talk about bait and switch. Like when Bernie Sanders turned into a Hillarybot Rusiagate Sellout and endorsed Gropey Joe. Now we’re in this whole quagmire in the Ukraine and Murkkkans are all being tricked into cheerleading some bogus proxy wars again. Terrible. I’m not into the Dick Cheney forever wars, not under Obama or Trump or Biden or any of ’em. Not into corporate rockers, either. I guess I kinda still like Duff, only slightly less, only slightly less than I used to. I’d probably go with Alvin Gibbs at this point.

THE HANGMEN

So yeah like I said previously, I can’t stop listening to “Cactusville”, the Hangmen’s best record in my opinion. I already wrote this paragraph earlier but somehow it vanished so I’m kinda goin’ back and retyping it and it aint gonna be half as spontaneous or heartfelt as it was before, but let’s just say they kept to the code, remained pirates, still fuckin’ rock, when almost nobody else still does. Of the maybe 400 remaining motherfuckers who still remember how to make real rocknroll, four of ’em happen to be in the Hangmen. Bryan Small writes his guttersnipe poetry in the key of alleycat. I love his voice and his songs and his band and that he has kept flyin’ the black flag for freedom all these years. When people compare my singing voice to Bryan Small or Billy Hopeless, heck, I take it as a compliment. Jimmy James is one of the finest guitar players in the sleazy rocknroll underground, you know the COMATONES were the greatest of all time, in my opinion. Maybe even better than the Four Horsemen. The Hangmen and Rank Outsiders and Dramarama are the only bands from USA, USA that have really stayed true to their school, stuck to their guns, never gave a fuck about trends, or fitting in, or chasing the filthy lucre. I love those bands for those reasons, but also, songwriting is important to me. I can listen to “Black Boots” by the Hangmen all day. Jorge E. Disguster hammers the cans like nobody’s business-those kinda heavy pounding, pro cowbell, walloping drummers are harder and harder to find in this day and age. There’s Clem Burke, John  Tyree, Marty E., Pat from Junkyard…see? I’m already running out. DEE POP passed away and he was who I always had in my head to be the drummer when imagining another round on the rocknroller coaster. (RIP) If ya ever heard that guy play with Gun Club or Joey Pinter on that “Blame It On Mom” cover you’ll know why I thought he was just right. Ya know it’s just SHOCKING how many people I dig are on the other side now-ya know? Everybody’s leavin’…just dyin’ suddenly. Everywhere I look, more obituaries, it’s a bummer, man. That’s why it’s important to show your appreciation for these hardknocks rocknroll lifers while they are still here. ya know? The Hangmen are probably my fave band from this country at this point-they’ve made a  lot of respectable records over the years but those songs on Cactusville are all so hard hitting, poignant, they have depth and even some vulnerability. So yeah the Hangmen are IT, babies. They got it all. Angelique’s husband was even a close friend of my dead guitarist KM. I’m under the impression the Hangmen will probably be touring again by the time you read these words I write in early December.

I CAN’T SAY WHY RUSSELL BRAND HAS A 33 TATTOO & SEEMS TO RUN A JARED LETO STYLE MERCH & MEDITATION CULT BUT
he says a lot of important off script, set breaking, adbuster, propaganda challenging stuff in spite of having been married to big boobied, monarch programmed, black magic promoting, occultic popstar Katy Perry. I don’t really trust any of these big famous media professionals, but there is more in depth, well reserached, triple sourced, facts based, scientific method and distrust of known liars happening over at Russell Brand’s cyberspace than anywhere in fakestream CIA/Mossad/WEF controlled pig-media. I’ve been told that universities used to be where people could freely exchange radical ideas, but not anymore. Remember when that honor roll kid got tasered and beaten and arrested and blacklisted for verbally confronting Skull N Boner John Kerry about the fake Jim Baker/Roger Stone/Supreme Court/Diebold exec/Katherine Harris sabotoge of the recount in Florida during the fix is in W Bush selction? They beat a kid and dragged him away for asking too many astute questions of a supposedly elected representative in a college forum setting and Kerry did not stop them proving he is indeed unfit for command but he’s still involved in all the nefarious billioanaire not so secret anymore ongoing plans for a cashless microchip society and ongoing desecration of the Bill Of Rights. You’re not supposed to fear new facts, or real science, or difference of opinion, or people asking childlike questions of authority figures, or free speech. Misinformation and fake news is what the millionaire media class and corrupt politicians do all day while still crushing dissent, hiding evidence, outlawing free speech, and censoring the left.

JIMMY JAMES ALSO PLAYS IN JUNKYARD

Last I heard from ole David Roach, he’d gone deep into an undergound truck stop kitchen world. I think Nashville, maybe. I like that guy. He’s blue collar like us, probably more rough and tumble. I dunno if they are on hiatus or what cause I’m proudly locked outta social media by the censor spooks for too much antiwar posting, but JUNKYARD are a mighty, mighty rock band-they make goos records, play wild shows, are totally connected to their fans and run a high quality merchandise booth. That’s the rocknroll dream come true in my eyes. Maybe they aint got helicopters and shit like the Offspring and Guns N Roses, but that one with the people shit is probably why they can still write some great song like “Lifer”, or “Faded” or “Cut From The Same Cloth” or “Last Of A Dying Breed”, whereas Guns N Roses can just remix that awful “November Rain” overstuffed epic hot garbage, and resell the too long, no song, pompous “Use Your Illusion” prog rock disasterpiece again, or drag out some commercial country chick to sing “Sweet Child” for ’em, or release some sub “Spaghetti Incident” halfhearted ripoff punk with a fake English accent ala “Absurd”. Absurd, indeed. They died the day they lost Adler and without Izzy they became a twenty piece bucketheaded sports stadium orchestra performing covers of old Izzy Stradlin songs with some Izzy lookalike. I’m not into it. I understand Duff’s pancreas exploded, but man, they lost any real punk identity decades ago during the supermodel phase with the Kid Rock bling, the bicycle shorts and the dolphin videos. I still like Izzy’s solo stuff okay, but of all the Headbanger’s Ball bands, only Hangmen, Junkyard, Circus Of Power are still vital and alive. Faster Pussycat have done some okay stuff since Danny Nordahl came aboard, I like Greg and Brent though and think it’s sad that Mark Michaels disappeared. I did like the Sea Hangs back in the day. Bands like Vain were just too screechy metal for me. Long live Junkyard!

I perused some ex friends sleep walking, mantra reciting, teleprompter obeying, official narrative repeating, false virtue signaling, consumer zombie, oligarch trusting, status quo defending Twitter accounts and was so sad to see ’em all falling for every phony baloney DNC fictitious fakenews fabrication-they repost stuff about how Zelensky, Hillary, Bill Gates and Doc Fauchi are coming to save them with GMO foods, Bayer/Monsanto medicines, Bill Gates geoengineering experiments, Bezos and Musk dick rockets to mars, Super Science Warp Speed safe and effective medical breakthroughs, and sensitive shows on cable about toddler celebrity cross dressing, and transkid’s California hormone rights, and Canadian euthansia, and feelgood anti Trumping justice tweeting and P.C. safespace etiquette, and cancelling Chapplelle and Rogan some more and appealing to privileged Gender voters as if Gina Haspel, Liz Cheney, Condoleeza Rice and Hillary Clinton are friends of the poor and oppressed and downtrodden, rather than pants-suited agents of the global finance mafia and endless war empire.

Goldwater gals like Warren and Clinton make all the gotmines in the beautiful houses feel good about non stop tech surveillence, billionaire control of all media, spies on the news shows selling Pentagon talking points to varying market-groups, etc. etc. When ex progressives like Naomi Klein or Keith Olbermann start pushing pro Nato forever war talking points, it’s easy to see why people are so easily confused. The fraud squad take turns being the lone progressive vote, so nothing changes for the common good of the wokers or the vast majority’s better interest. Rotating villains like Manchin and Synema and the magical mysterious Parlimentarian you never heard of previously are deployed to kill anything that benfits the poor. “Gridlock” except if it benfits weapon makers, oil plunderers, tech billionaires or big pharma. Kyrsten Sinema is Klaus Schwab Davos billionaire controlled hot garbage, but if you are baffled by identity politicks into believing “it’s all good”, so long as some token members of once marginalized demigraphics are in on the class war and outright crimes against humanity, you probably will continue to vote blue no matter who, and cheer for AOC when she helps bust unions, or superfunds the racist police state, or gives more billions to nazis in the Ukraine. When I was a kid, they taught us to judge people by their character, not their body parts or skintone or sexual preferences but appearances and menaingles labels have been weaponized by identity tricksters, race hustlers, empty pro noun peddlers and Thank Obamas. Ruling class tools to divide and divert us and keep us all seperated. You aint no rocknroll rebel if you support the mainstream worldview, cashless society one world government, central banking micochip billionaire agenda. These authoritrians think the people will never see through their wolves in sheep’s clothing bullshit chicanery. Some people are gettin’ hip, though. Child cages and drone assassinations, coups on socialist democracies, mass surveillance and mass incarceration don’t become overnight okeydoke and magically delicious just cause private plane Pelosi who reminds you of your drunk aunt tells AOC to sit down and shaddup. They are all frauds and puppets.It’s up to you to see through the empty tweeting about the politest pro nouns, pretty models reading teleprompters, and media smokescreens.

BEING IS MORE EFFECTIVE THAN HAVING

Ya know how I know? The always ungrateful and ungratified greedhead got-mine, (want all yours too) landlords are always hissing their never ending, spiteful complaints, the passive income stream business owners won’t shut up about their money for nothing they try to pass off as bootstraps hard work and virtuous, sweat of their highbrow philanthropy. I wish I could record my songs, I wish people would not give me so much shit when I wanna drink and listen to music-of course I sometimes wish I had a little more surplus to buy books and hats and glasses and cowboy boots, or old new wave cassettes, but really, I have not much desire and certainly almost zero motivation to try to “get rich” like all the people on the hill who trash talk us low wage serfs, mainly cause all those clenching, clawing, shit hoarding, head stepping, back stabbing, turf guarding, status having, plagiaristic phony motherfuckers are scared to death their yesman inner circle entrouge or higher up superiors are gonna find out their poor friend is actually the one generating all their content. People who own recording studios never seem to motherfucking have any new songs to record. A guy in my town has to take his flash car downtown everynight, parks it in front of a hotel, hopes some female tourist sees it. I dunno if that shit really works like some kinda magic love spell. For me, it’s all ephemeral, I always want more booze, more songs, more food, more kicks. The most precious stuff I love the most just ceaselessly eludes me and the ex friends chase me around like Pac Man, feels like I’m forever fleeing from the Hungry Ghosts who just wanna steal all the life and eat all the fruit. Music is what brings me the most joy besides my loved ones. I do like the booze.

STRAY CATS, CRAMPS, CLASH, & EDDIE NICOLS

Stray Cats, Cramps, and The Clash were the early MTV and Creem magazine powered coolest rock bands that me and many other smalltown kids stranded in loathsome midwestern towns could easily connect to because they really had a whole idea, they were retro in a cool as shit way that picked up where all the Death Of Presley and fifties greaser Thunderbirds nostalgia and the Fonz left off, but they had everything, really. Hip songs, fuck school rebel attitudes, exquisite hair, pink creepers and leopard print suit jackets, heartfelt love songs, a standup drummer, standup bassist, amazing guitar player with marvelous pipes, teddy boy pinup looks the chicks could swoon over, blue suede shows and vintage old bowling shirts, unbreakable cobs galore, hot rods, they came as a whole package-even the merch was dynamite. Made us all wanna be in bands. All my little friends and me were total outcasts back then, real primitive untrained hacks just bashing away but that was all we needed really-a belligerent enthusiasm and an idea. I have no idea what all those modern day scene queen posers think they are doing with all their expensive gear and clothing but they do not have any ideas or enthusiastic belligerence, and that’s a shame really, the main reason none of it really rocks that much at all. I know summa those guys who play in those real gentrified nowadays bands-they’re the  kinda guys who got old and cheesed out, became inlaw pressured, uncool and uptight so now they like to play that he’s the “good guy” and I’m the “bad guy” game, it’s so corny now, these poor fuckers, it always makes me laugh, that they still need some kinda mirrored shades wearing feather earring boogyman to blame for their youthful indiscretions among their posher than thou in crowd friends. The money havers are such a joke to me. Clinging to it, shaking with fear I’m gonna show up someday and get ’em in trouble somehow with their fancy wife from the upper crust. Hoo Hoo. Can’t take it with ’em. But I get to KEEP my bad reputation. Stray Cats brought all that atomic jet fuel energy, plus dedication, real committed musicianship and whizbang songwriting. That was it for me, they really had it all, and even as I got a little bit older, I remained really invested in Brian Setzer’s solo albums-they really always spoke to me. Part of my whole thing really can easily be traced back to Brian Setzer. If you’ve seen ’em live, you know they rock like motherfuckers. “Runaway Boys” was probably one of the reasons I felt motivated to split that town and quit that town when I was 14 and had more than my fair share of bullshit from the 700 Club antirock church fanatics and the uncool uptight square juvenile corrections professionals. So yeah, if you had any style or flair or rebel spirit and were from some miserable dump where you could seldom find any underground records, at least back then you could still access all that primo eighties mainstream music they were playing on the radio like the Stray Cats, Joan Jett, and The Clash! Me, I loved Van Halen, ZZ Top, J. Geils, the Blues Brothers, Madness, I liked it all! My idea of awesomeness back then was like, checkered Vans, parachute pants, and a knitted see through shirt and some kinda cool leather hat and a spiked bracelet and four spiked belts from like, Merry Go Round in the Indiana mall like those big city teenage street gangs you’d see in “Breakin'” or “Beat It”, or “Beat Street”. I had a big jock friend named Bobby H. (RIP) who liked The Cars, his mom forbade him from socializing with me because all the parents disapproved of my appearance, an awkward mishmash of breakdance hip hop, new romantic, goth, and Jeff Spicoli infused heavy metal. Bobby and Brent W. stole his mom’s fancy sports car, painted it to look different and then took it outta town on a wild muti Chess King extravagant shopping spree on Bobby H.’s mom’s credit card. They got in big trouble for that shit. I’m glad I was not involved. Me and Dekan did steal some Jim Morrison books and heavy metal magazines from the bookstore in the mall. Years later I got cuffed when Dekan sprayed blue Halloween hairspray in my hair, walking around Value City. We drank and smoked cigarettes, too. Got laid in the cemeatry and on the railroad tracks by the cemetary. “The Bad Kids”!

I remember being in juvenile hall and my grandfather writing a letter to me responding to some Brian Setzer quotes I had sent to him on a postcard!

The establishment tried to kill Elvis/wild rocknroll by making him go away and serve in the military but it will always find a way to come back to life-that’s what Fred Hampton means when he says you can kill the revolutionary, but you can’t kill the revolution. I tried to ignore that stupid swing revival, because I could not stand almost any of the suburban swing types, but then I met this dude Eddie Nichols in a bar and we became friends, instantly. We kept in touch for a couple years and we’d even get together anytime he came through my part of the country back then. He has it. Bigger than movies, bigger than life. He is a bold blue flame. And a righteous hombre. You know I don’t say that about everybody. Eddie Nichols is an exceptional talent, a real star. It’s hard to see him sing without wanting to smoke and drink.

One of the next bands in the early eighties nowheres, Quiet Riot kids lurking around the arcade with Marlboros behind our ear, were able to access, gradually over time, was THE CRAMPS. Man, whenever you’d visit a big city when we were preteens and young teenagers, you’d pick up something related to The Cramps. Postcard, t shirt, vinyl-you’d spend hours gawking at the sleeve art. You could catch ’em live like two hours down the road, too cause they’d come play the bigger college towns. Back then us graveyard kids and Marlboro smokin’ dead end brats in the combat boots and leather jackets knew to stick together. One of my first garage bands used to do “Garbage Man”. Ya know bands like those ghouls had the deep dark cool of authenticity, they weren’t pissin’ around, wasting my time with half hearted bullshit-they left it all on the stage, and showed me how.

People seem to understand when I tell ’em I’m really influenced by David Lee Roth and Billy Idol, but they always raise an eyebrow when I start talking about how Chris Isaak‘s gotta be one of my biggest influences because my singing voice is nowhere near angelic, nothing like his golden pipes, and I’m not pretty, but you don’t have to look like Elvis to be influenced by somebody’s songs about heartbreak and despair. “I don’t want no counseling…” About twice a year on a rare drinking night for my honey, we’ll pull out the guitar and she will play my old songs, we still do a few of my slower old ones, like a private latenight Lux N Ivy Revue. All my songs I wrote in the Bastards, the Naked Flames, and the Loneliness were heavily Chris Isaak influenced.

JASON & THE SCORCHERS

came along about the same time I was discovering stuff via an older friend from the big city, like, X, Gun Club, Chris Isaak, Tex & The Horseheads, Charlie Sexton. I naturally loved all that stuff, but as usualy, being from Maysville Kentucky before getting stuck repeatedly for years in bleak and always thoroughly hellish Ohio where they manufacture the fratboys, somebody has to wear thoes dumb cargo shorts and baseball caps, I guess. Talk about chili and sports at the Beer Barrel pizza. It aint gonna be me, though. Jason & The Scorchers will always have a profound influence on my own deadend desert ghost town elderly goth and “Maximum Torch & Twang” band, The Loneliness, and our spontaneous getdown latenight hoedowns. Looking for a lead guitarist who is a cross between Bryan Gregory and Kid Congo Powers.

were the other mainstream punk influenced bands ya know, along with like the Ramones and the Damned that were heavily merchandised enough and got enough college airplay to have made it to our fuckedup little tank plant Ohio town. Cool girls at school liked Prince, Madonna, Duran and Siouxsie. The boys all loved the Mifits-we covered “Skulls” and “Astro Zombies”-our drummer’s sporto older brothers were discovering like Black Flag and the Circle Jerks, TSOL, and Dead Kennedys but they were all still Budweiser swilling conformist jock dicks who mostly hated me and my friends except for two guys who got the pass, but had to do a lot of kissing up for it. By 87 and 88, I was out of detention hall but not off of double secret slippery slope, school to hoozgow pipeline, sticky trap, semi-permanent probation and the authorities were still fucking with me all the time for my Aqua Net and hoop earrings and nosering and rosaries. The boys in our crowd were all starting to like shit like Suicidal Tendencies and even some corny DC/HC. Me and the girls were all still listening to like Prince and Peter Murphy, Billy Idol, Sisters. the Bolshoi, and the Cure. Lots of Duran Duran and New Order. Mary Chain and Roxy Music and back to Inxs and the Furs. I was hanging out with a girl named Jenna, but she was just too popular for me in her hometown of Ft. Wayne. She reminded me of my first great innocent new wave love, it was all about the Cure and shyly holding hands, smoking cigarettes in parking lots, drinking whatever booze we  could find and wearing leather jackets. 

THE EMPIRE HAS NO CONSCIENCE

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO REAL PUNKNROLL?

It’s true I was also very into like, Van Halen and Cheap Trick, Billy Squire, Rick Springfield, but completely devoted to a lotta sullen new wave beauty like Depeche Mode, Joy Divison/New Order, Jesus & Mary Chain, and Psychedelic Furs. I was really always into the Furs, so when I first fell in love, with a certain Smiths enthusiast from deepest Ken N Barbie Milk N Honey Suburbia  ya know, I might have been thirteen or fourteen-I think I was fourteen, she mighta still been thirteen, but we had the perfect and innocent young love, ya know, mostly cause it was soundtracked by the likes of the early Police, Joe Jackson, Elvis Costello,  the Church and Echo, Inxs and Duran, Fun Boy Three, Depeche Mode, the Smiths and the Psychedelic Furs. I wrote all my songs about her for years really. Then I ranaway to NYC and got into Joy Division and Bauhaus. Video editing-filmmaking-actor-DJ’s, Robbie Mailhouse and Morgan Reese got me into Fra Lippo Lippi. They took me to see Butthole Surfers at Danceteria, it was wild. I was attracted to the low budget entertainers at the Pyramid Club. John Sex and the Fleshtones and Wendy Wild & The Mad Violets.

Gutter Gospel: Antisocial Glamarchist & Burntout Recluse Travel Blog, And Wellness Retreat, With Your Host, Murkkka’s Fave Dishwasher, General Labor!

I woke up at about 4:55 this morning and I’m generally an early riser, but that’s a bit early even for me. My neighbor’s got a confused rooster. I went outside while the sun was risin’ to spend time with the outdoor feral cats we feed and neglected to wear a shirt or shoes so I got bit up by mosquitoes and these desert mosquitoes are like mutants, maybe of that Bill Gates variety, who knows, but their bites never seem to go away. It rained last night so everything feels kinda musty, in a couple hours I gotta trudge across town through perilous streets of leashless desert dogs and crazy people, always kinda dread facing the world out there. The woman in red who talks to herself, the Slim Shadies on the bad drugs. Something ’bout the day feels ominous, just got this foreboding sense of unease. I feel pretty disconnected from everybody I grew up with, just alienated by this whole culture. The casual acceptance of this unsparing war on whistle blowers and journalists like Daniel Hale and Julian Assange. The dreary, demented, ancient, old, ghoulish warpigs like Biden and Pelosi, and their belligerent saber rattling and senseless provocations for always more wars. The pitiless, bloodcurdling movies and evil muzak being pushed on the kids by these shady elite occultist creeps. The smileyfaced, see no evil yuppies, always looking the other way, rather than admitting the country’s crumbling into not just recession, but two starkly different realities-one for the privileged super rich  and dwindling middle class, another brutal, merciless one for the majority who are falling into houselessness at an alarming pace, or just “dying suddenly”. Some of my own relatives social distance themselves from my immediate family, I suspect cause they’re afraid they might catch The Poverty and their helpful philanthropic super scientific saviors at Pfizer might not have a pill for that particular affliction. I don’t know how people can call themselves media professionals or educators and have any self respect while regurgitating all these known fucking lies for war and bullshit narratives and slogans that are supposed to okeydoke all the corruption and decay all around us. I’m too old to wanna live with a house full of crazies eating your food and shit, like when we were in our twenties, and slept ten to a room in those disgustingly filthy communal band houses with the black hair dye stains in every sink and ten thousand empty beer cans on the floor. I don’t see how any of these poor people who work fulltime slave jobs for minimum wage are even covering their rent in this ripoff real estate market except if they live with a bunch of other slaves. I feel like an awful lot of people probably drink just to cope with anxiety and depression, next time you’re in line at the checkout counter, just take a look at all the booze everybody’s buying. And lotto tickets. Where I live, there are no bands. People are too poor to have bands. There’s like a crazy dude with an obvious drug problem who picks his face and arms, he kinda plays a couple chords on an acoustic guitar in front of the grocery store. That’s about it. Some old country music elderly people I guess. A Mexican band from three hours away plays at the Moose Lodge. Whenever I get hold of an all too elusive copy of “VIVE LE ROCK” magazine, it seems like they still got a thriving rocknroll scene in the UK and also in Australia. Must be affordable rents in those places. Imagine Max’s or CB’s happening today with the gentrification rent gouging, right? I mean…come on. You heard the millionaire mimosa-rock? It’s all just so so art school artsy fartsy like The Strokes or lowest common denominator formulaic like Green Day and Foo Fighters, I’m looking for some heartfelt original voices, not just more motherfuckers whose parents told them they’re the best and bought them a trophy and a motorcycle and a special fame career.
UNPRECEDENTED CENSORSHIP, DEVIOUS AND DECEPTIVE PROGRAMMING, ABUSIVE GASLIGHTING LIES, AND FASCIST FATCAT PROPAGANDA ARE OVERWHELMING US ALL! 

“Alan MacLeod has a new article out with Mintpress News showing how most of the supposedly independent “fact-checking” organizations which Facebook has partnered with to police the information people are allowed to see on the platform about the war in Ukraine are, in fact, funded by the United States government.

“Most of the fact-checking organizations Facebook has partnered with to monitor and regulate information about Ukraine are directly funded by the U.S. government, either through the U.S. Embassy or via the notorious National Endowment for Democracy (NED),” MacLeod writes.

NED is indeed notorious because, as MacLeod explains, it was set up to do overtly many of the operations which the CIA used to perform covertly, like circulating propaganda in empire-targeted nations, funding foreign uprisings, and facilitating the 2014 coup in Ukraine which set in motion the events that would eventually lead to Russia’s invasion of the nation this past February.

Macleod shows how US government money is funneled into Facebook’s “fact-checking organizations” through NED and other channels, the result being a US government-funded narrative management operation in a social media platform which has almost three billion active users.

Most of fact-checking organisations Facebook uses to police content on Ukraine are directly funded by the US government— either by the US embassy or through notorious CIA front group, the NED. My new investigation exclusively at @MintPressNews:https://t.co/FH4R0HKs1s

This article is just the latest installment in a series of pieces MacLeod has been putting out with Mintpress over the past few months documenting the many strings you can see between major Silicon Valley platforms and the US-centralized empire, which are becoming clearer and more numerous by the year.

Last month MacLeod released a report on the many veterans of the CIA and other branches of the US intelligence cartel who are being hired to high-level positions within Facebook’s parent company Meta which help determine what kinds of information get visibility on the company’s social media platforms. Meta’s “senior product policy manager for misinformation” was hired straight out of the Central Intelligence Agency in 2019 and now helps Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp sort out information from misinformation.

Last month MacLeod also put out an article on the many CIA veterans who have been hired to help Google decide what information gets seen in its searches and on Google-owned platforms like YouTube. Google is easily the single most influential corporation on earth when it comes to public access to information.

In June MacLeod penned an article titled “The Federal Bureau of Tweets: Twitter is Hiring an Alarming Number of FBI Agents,” reporting that “the social media giant has, in recent years, recruited dozens of individuals from the national security state to work in the fields of security, trust, safety and content.”

Even TikTok, MacLeod documents, has begun hiring a bizarre number of former NATO employees to police its content at the same time it has begun aligning with other Silicon Valley platforms in its censorious policies toward content from Russia.

MacLeod’s important work builds on that of other reporters like Yasha Levine, whose book Surveillance Valley: The Secret Military History of the Internet describes the way humanity’s unprecedented access to information has been intertwined with US imperial power from its very inception.

Silicon Valley is at least as fundamental a component of US imperial narrative control as the legacy media and Hollywood, and is becoming even more so. Together they comprise the empire’s narrative control apparatus, which is just as essential to the functioning of the empire as its military or economic might.

The expansion of human consciousness on issues of political and social justice has brought with it a growing public intolerance for tyranny and oppression, which has made it necessary for the world’s current empire to rule over us by providing us with the illusion of freedom. We are told that we live in a democracy where the people control their own fate, but in reality we are inundated with propaganda from the moment we are born that is designed to psychologically manipulate the way we think, act and vote. As Noam Chomsky said, “Propaganda is to a democracy what the bludgeon is to a totalitarian state.”

Silicon Valley is filled with spooks and liars for the same reason the mainstream news media support every war and continually normalize the freakish injustices of our society: because whoever controls the narrative controls the world. Perception is reality, and if you can control how people perceive reality then, as far as their behavior is concerned, you control reality itself.

We will remain trapped with the abuses of the status quo oppression machine until we awaken to this fact.

HOORAY FOR HOLLYWOOD


To me, The Coma-Tones were the best band in the world. I always related to alla Gio’s songs and Jimmy is just stellar. I felt personally affected for a long time when Gio left this world, he was one of the very, very few people I DEEPLY related to on a  very deep and intimate Beasts Of Bourbon level. This is my kinda rocknroll, dunno why nobody seems to get it anymore. They were all soul. Street, guts, heart, love ’em. (RIP)

STARS FROM MARS

I remember when we were glammed out teenagers still stranded in the Midwest and just dreaming about the faraway lights of Tinsel Town, we saw their pictures in the glossy magazine they sold at Noir Leather in Detroit, “Propaganda” and somehow we found their mailing address and sent away for their demotape which arrived on cassette with a cool flier of the Stars From Mars as little cartoon characters. The songs were pretty low budget. Tunes like, “Kick Dat Cat”, I think one was called. Demos, indeed. I liked “We Got Tonight”. I always rooted for that band. They reunited in recent years. Ya know that David Lee Roth/John 5 song, “Nothing Could Have Stopped Us” drove me to reach out to certain former bandmates to see if they had a desire to wave the torch again, but I think they are all pretty happy where they are now. I don’t think they like being reminded of their roots, where we came from was not a pretty place, I kinda represent their hard times, the bad years before they escaped the poverty and they’ve kinda all moved on up to thee top, to a deluxe apartment in the sky. I’m like the skeleton in the closet. What can ya do? Happy to see my former colleague Dazzle Star back out there, treading the boards. I think he smokes.

LOST FIVE OR SIX OF MY TEENAGE METAL FRIENDS TO MILITARY CULTURE, ONE KILLED HIMSELF, OTHERS TOO BOO-YA JACKEDUP TAKER AGGRESSIVE TO HAVE RELATIONSHIPS WITH, SO SAD.

Andrew Bacevich, a retired Army Colonel who fought in Vietnam, and Danny Sjursen, a retired Army Major who did tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, have just published Paths of Dissent: Soldiers Speak Out Against America’s Misguided Wars. Bacevich and Sjursen, West Point graduates, like many writers in the book, come out of the military culture. They began as true believers, embracing the myths of American goodness and virtue and the military honor code pounded into them as young cadets at the military academy. The reality of combat, as it has for generations, exposed the lies told by the generals and politicians. We are not a good and virtuous nation. God does no bless us above other nations. Victory is not assured. War is not noble and uplifting. The clash between the reality of combat, and the mythical version of combat consumed by the public, one that propels young men and women into war, creates not only dissonance and moral injury, but an existential crisis combat veterans, at least those who are self-reflective, must cope with for the rest of their lives.

The Black Alliance for Peace Condemns FBI Attack on the African People’s Socialist Party | Black Agenda Report

“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has left Taiwan after a brief but diplomatically corrosive visit, the aftereffects from which may be felt for years to come.

Toward the end of her speech alongside Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen, Pelosi’s brain underwent one of its increasingly common software glitches, causing her to begin babbling inarticulately.

Here is a transcript of what Nancy Pelosi’s brain said:

“In our earliest days at our founding of our country, Benjamin Franklin, our presidency, said, freedom and democracy. Freedom and democracy, one thing, security here. If we don’t have- we can’t have either, if we don’t have both.”

Nancy Pelosi in Taiwan with wise words from “Benjamin Franklin, our presidency” on “freedom and democracy on one thing, security here.” pic.twitter.com/mElfFUoF5C

— Max Blumenthal (@MaxBlumenthal) August 3, 2022

Of course Benjamin Franklin was neither a president of the United States nor a “presidency”, and the quote Nancy’s floundering brain was reaching for was “Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” These are not difficult things to remember or articulate for someone with functioning gray matter.

This is right up there with other famous neural malfunctions by the speaker, like her “Bernie loves hearing” gibberish from last year or her bizarre “Good morning, Sunday morning” restart in the middle of an interview a couple of years ago, and it calls to mind a DC pharmacist’s casual remark in 2017 that he had filled prescriptions to treat Alzheimer’s disease for some powerful decision makers on Capitol Hill.

None of which would be a problem, if we were talking about some little old lady whiling away her twilight years at a retirement home in Florida. But we are not; we are talking about one of the most powerful elected officials in the most powerful government on earth, third in the line of succession to the presidency after the vice president.

More importantly, we are talking about someone who just participated in an incendiary visit to Taiwan which has ensured the escalation of dangerous cold war tensions between major world powers, and could potentially have triggered a hot war with China.

What? pic.twitter.com/xoYPO2TY2o  (@Yolo304741) July 28, 2022

US war machinery, including aircraft carriers and large planes, were mobilized to provide security for Pelosi’s visit ahead of her arrival. The United States military was literally just used to help a dementia patient try to start World War Three.

China’s response to Pelosi’s provocation has thankfully been relatively measured, though we’re about to see Taiwan fully encircled by the Chinese navy for a show of force unlike anything we’ve seen in decades, and Chinese sanctions upon Taiwanese commerce are still being announced. There will be political pressure in Beijing to escalate tensions with the US so as not to look weak, and the intensity of the new cold war has certainly been ratcheted up a notch, but when it comes to hot war it looks like humanity’s better angels have prevailed for now.

None of this makes it acceptable for the world’s most powerful government to send a politician whose brains are leaking out her ears to try to stir up hostilities under cover of its military forces.

The world is worse now than it was before Pelosi’s plane touched down. Less safe, less wealthy, less kind, and more frightening. Not one ordinary person has benefitted from her insanely hawkish provocation made in her final years on this earth, especially not the people of Taiwan.

The US empire is sick, and it is playing sick games with all our lives. As far as I’m concerned, its downfall can’t come soon enough. (-Caitlin Johnstone)

“In this video, I analyze the US war drive against China. Nancy Pelosi’s trip to Taiwan is just the latest provocation. The Pentagon has war plans, CIA officials call for war, US troops on the ground, US sending billions in weapons, think tanks want nukes.” (-Benjamin Norton)

“Fearing a new conflict over Taiwan, Pentagon Papers leaker Daniel Ellsberg released a shocking account showing how the Joint Chiefs pressed Eisenhower to launch a nuclear war on China. Ellberg’s warning is more relevant than ever.” (-Max Blumenthal)

REMEMBER THE EX IDOLS? THEY WERE PHOTOGRAPHED WITH MY FRIEND ALIA IN DETAILS MAGAZINE BACK IN THE DAY.

I thought they were pretty good for a grunge era hard rock group. My ex bassplayer loved ’em, said they were like Nirvana meets Van Halen with brain dead lyrics. That made no sense to me until I heard ’em, I liked ’em better than Green Day or any of that shit that got popular and trendy circa the mid nineties. Gary X Finneran was the pre P.C. singer with the scroungier Birdland/Billy Idol like good looks. He also had a band called Tragedy Club, but sadly died on May 10, 2009 at the age of 45. People keep droppin’ dead, left and right all over. especially lately. Half my generation seems to be leaving the planet. There’s a couple hipsters in my county with the dreads and tattoos, they hate it though, they’re only here cause their mama has money, they seem to want some kindof attention from me I don’t really have the energy to give ’em, especially not in the sweltering heat, so now they’re feeling kinda hath no fury scorned. Whatever. One guy asked me what kinda music I like I said, “The Stooges, Smack, Fishfaces, stuff like that.” Never heard of any of ’em. I changed my answer, “David Bowie, Stones, Aerosmith, Alice Cooper?” That helped a little. At least he nodded. One guy just found out about Iggy last year when I told him about him. Hard to find proper punknroll players in times and places such as these. Somedays it really gets me down. I can’t really even import anybody from outta state because there are no jobs here, we are way, way too poor to support anybody else, can’t provide for no musicians.

“I thought the Obama administration was the most dangerous administration since 1945 until this one. One of the reasons this one is so bad is because it is made up of inept retreads from Obama & neocons who abandoned the republican party in 2016. This reckless and irresponsible act by Pelosi is the psychopathology of white supremacy and could very well have the U.S. in another war.” (~ 2016 Green Party Vice President nominee Ajamu Baraka)

“People in Taiwan are largely protesting Pelosi because what people in most countries who’ve been impacted by U.S intervention do not often forget is the destruction after, & what they most want is the simple sovereignty to determine their future.” (-Fiorella Isabel)

“This asshole’s brains are leaking out her ears and they just let her fly to Taiwan to ramp up hostilities between nuclear-armed powers. The US just spent ninety million dollars helping a dementia patient try to start World War Three.” (-Caitlin Johnstone)

When you start talking about racism and classism in the USA, USA, those safespace entitled property owners who benefit from preserving the status quo, will start looking to find fault with your commentary, they have been trained by the establishment to try to “bust” you, TMZ style, find some flaw or weakness in your arguments, or point. What do the college people call that, again? Debate team, or some shit? Cancel culture? “See something/say something”, they teach the management class peeps all these jive silencing techniques to kinda like try to silence the people, send us to the back of the bus, try to get us to quit talking about the lies for war and buy into their bullshit identity politricks she/her “FACT CHECKER” Snopes narratives. Ha. These suckup bench warmer types want us to get back in line, like them, they gonna try n rope us back into their mainstream Netflix fake woke scripts, like they think they can make us fear we’re gonna get excluded, unpopularized, or demonetized or something. Thing is, that only works on people who were insiders, popularized, or monetized to begin with. One good thing about not being a salaried media professional is like, I don’t have to pretend to like Jack White or Kanye West or that Grimes chick or the Insane Clown Posse or Kid Rock or Lil Nas X. Not even slightly interested in cashing big checks to lie about that. I was desperate one time when no one would help me and I had nowhere to go and admittedly took some paychecks from an entertainment weekly, but for the most part, I just ignore people who try to oblige me into make believe liking shit that just aint that good, because it’s part of some kinda distant social hierarchy that has nothing to do with me. I aint in the hierarchy, so why would I care about all these folks who keep getting financed to make albums all the time, without having to even write any decent songs. I dunno, man. That middle school cafeteria shit was just never my bag, at all. What are these social climbing clowns and weasels gonna do if I refuse to make believe I like Kid Rock or some shitty mediocrity tribute act? Not bankroll my records, not let me headline Saturday Night at the homeless hating yuppie/hipster bar? Not charge me two grand a month to live in their special privilege zone? No free drink tickets to see some kid in a costume playing records some old lady just told him about at the gentrification bar on Tuesday night? I used to be jealous that Rob Sheffield makes lots of money, lives in NYC, and gets to socialize with Duran Duran, but look at what he has to do for it. Talk about Britney and all that shit all the time for twenty five years. No thanks, I got no patience for the corporation jellyroll boyband shills or mk ultra pop sluts or middle class politeness brigades or being admonished for my supposed lack of wokey wokeness by facking landlords or navel studies graduates. Sometimes, it seems they might even do it on a subconscious level, the haves on the hill will let you know they have disliked your being outspoken against the bullshit wars and social ranking system jive, they wanna draw a red circle around something you’ve said wrong, find an error, correctify you, like you need their permission or endorsements or it’s gonna affect your grade point average or something. Middle class booj people all think they’re Kall the Kops Karens special agent wokeness patrols and vigilante squads, always scrutinizing your tone, forever looking for that gotcha moment, always implying you’ve done something “incorrect”. If middle classers try n lay their Starbucks and NPR vote blue no matter who politeness, etiquette rulebook or “Her Turn” Hillarybot social climber obligation trips on you, just walk away. Trust your own gut instincts. Keep fighting. You were not born to make middle class property owners feel good about themselves or their favorite “Dynamite Magazine” pinup red carpet celebrities. The punks who came after me for not digging AOC’s empty grandstanding were like rabid dogs. God bless ’em, they’re just old and obsessed with their STUFF and outta touch.

I never considered myself any kinda like tough guy or anything, though I have had to fight, for much of my life. Price I pay for lookin’ cool. You can’t grow up in places like Ohio or Indiana without having to fight the dumb fuckin’ ruling class mama’s boy jocks and rednecks, particularly not if, uh, you know, you wear makeup and spray your hair up like Steve Stevens or Johnny Thunders. Which I’d been known to do for quite some many years. Nowadays, with all these really loathsome creepy pervs and wannabe gurus like Jared Leto and Ezra Miller wearing all the traditional affectations of Jack Fairy Velvet Goldmine glam, it makes me feel less and less inclined to wanna be associated with transhumanist cyborg and mk ultra slave promotors. The fascist billionaire techfascist warpigs man they ransack every subculture and steal all the styles  and symbols and cool ideas to advance their sick Gates Reset Agenda to younger generations via Tik Tok and super hero movies and that awful, awful fake and toxic hip-pop they do now with the heiresses and the influencers from youtube. Been more than 25 years of conditioning people to be adverse to bodily autonomy even just in the airports, independent choices, free speech, freedom of the press, facts based news reporting, the deep state fascists and spooks infiltrated and undermined all the institutions like ACLU and Amnesty, organizations that used to fight for free speech, fight for objectionable speech, and the right to say shit that cloistered safespace, gentrification special class sensitivity kids might be offended by. Most of punk rock was all about being offensive. Shock tactics, provoking outrage intentionally, from Iggy on–Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedys, Butthole Surfers, Viletones. Now it’s just like a buncha Industry Brainwash producer/handler creeps, their disassociated DIZneyfied lapdancer puppets, negative programming, and some namby pampy richkid garbage muzak that says nothing, that has no message, it’s just an excuse for people with throwaway money to buy new clothes, you know? You know that old LOVE & ROCKETS lyric, “I wanna hear a song that makes me believe in something!”? I’m lookin’ for that tune with a point of view, with genuine emotions, what happened to all the real music? Amurkkan Idolized it all, they turned it into sports and pay to play Hunger Games knife fighting. Like Sylvain sang, “What’s That Got To Do With Rocknroll”? You know they’re even making sexy spy movies glorifying bio-warfare? I mean, WTF?

Tripped over a $1 copy of the Gary Numan 1979 classic Beggar’s Banquet LP, “The Pleasure Principal” at the shitty second hand store today and you know, it’s been about two months since I came across a couple Devo and Ramones LP’s. I live in a nowhere town, so any kinda weirdo music is real elusive. Same as it ever was, same as it ever was. All those records remind me of spending the night at my old buddy Jaysin’s house where he had created an elaborately glam and kooky “fabric jungle” outta animal print and xmas lites, he had a very stern anti guitar stance, back then. No guitars, fuck guitars, he hated guitars. All he liked was Gary Numan, Depeche Mode, and New Order. He had great hair, cool clothes, and chicks adored him. I slept with one of his favorite local big haired new wave chicks and he never forgave me, even though he had gone on to sleep with multiple chicks I similarly liked and demonstrated particular interest in the one he knew I had the most sentimental attachment to. All this is eighties nonsense from when we were 14. 15. 16, but since he killed himself two years ago, it stays on my front page. All those songs, all those bands, the girls and clothes and haircuts. I’m haunted when the minutes drag. Back then, I used to have pictures of Lisa Bonet and Sigue Sigue Sputnik, Charlie Sexton and Boy George all over my room. Jaysin and I would play around with crappy keyboards and drum machines for hours on end, quarreling about whether or not we should bring our common friend, Dave, into our band on guitar. I kept insisting that you know, Andy Taylor’s “Hold Back The Rain” and “Take It Easy” lick was essential to any songs I might ever compose. I’m 52 now and nothing’s changed. Last I knew of Dave playing guitar was when he joined the Dimestore Haloes during med school. I miss the kid, we were like brothers growing up. For me, he was irreplaceable. Kinda like Andy Taylor in Duran Duran. I called him up at work this morning, like I did our old writer-collaborator-Haloes bass man Jake, a couple weeks ago. They both seem happy. Both have Serious Jobs. Married men. Totally Respectable. God bless ’em! It’s so strange getting old and seeing everybody doing their own thing, I always felt like this one chick who we met in line outside an L.A. Guns and Quireboys concert changed our course, when she asked to take out picture in all our ridiculous cowboy glam threads, she was rich as hell, she came from South Africa and her dad owned a cigarette company, she kinda had a siren like effect on our guitar hero. Lured him outta the punk underground and into straight society. Whatever makes ’em happy. Me, I’m rootin’ for everybody. Not everybody stays wild n  rebellious forever. That’s okay. You gotta do your own dance, follow your own calling. Our old pal, Ron E. runs a commercial photography business. Bobby’s Dead which horrifies me again almost every morning when I wake up and have to re-remember again. No idea whatever became of Tony M. Let’s just say none of the old gang look like L.A. Guns anymore. Just me now, cheese stands alone. I still wanna rock like fuck.

I just came home from a long walk to the post office in the lonesome desert heat and find myself writing these lyrics about old former friends and flames I thought I’d mostly forgotten. I heard from a colleague, Mr. John Dissed who was censored on Twitter, Facebook Jail style for talking about a new book by much maligned author Robert F. Kennedy, called “Message To The Liberal Class” and the likelihood of some collaborations of ours potentially seeing some online censorship, but I just told I’m, “whenever we get a chance to broadcast our tiny signals to a propagandized world that’s currently goose stepping so eagerly towards techfacsism I say we push the envelopes as far as we can. it aint much alrite I know…but maybe the next guy hears it…and he does his little bit, and on and on! Joe Strummer said strike tiny blows against the evil empire. ya know?” Imagine writing a book and the self congratulating academic world being too terrorized and propagandized to read it. I empathize-ya know? I wrote a bunch of songs and people are too afraid to record ’em. They might get in trouble, their wive’s moms might not like it, somebody on Twitter might find ’em “offensive”. What a fucking crazy Kafkaeskue nightmare shitscape we have all entered. Stay Wild! Stay Free! Good Night & Good Luck, brothers and sisters and friends of the Revolution.
