**** UPDATES, 5/18/20: NOW POSTED: Coming soon, as you'll see right below this posting...DESPERATE TIMES #2, chronicling the rise and fall of Safari Sam's, the legendary Huntington Beach night spot -- an oral history, and hardboiled narrative of its brief, but highly-charged two year-run (1984-86).
PLUS: My extended interview with Cherie Currie and Brie Darling, as promised, from last fall -- plus relevant pics from their 11/24/19 Acorn Theater show. AND: My chat with Tom Principato about his new book, They Tell Me I Had A Good Time!
AND: My impressions of White Summer's latest shows (11/30.19, and 3/07/20)...turn it up to 10, if you like. Or maybe your amps will go up to 11? Either way...you know what you're looking for, and now, you've got it. (All White Summer interview outtakes and gig reviews are now in their special section.) ALSO: My writeup on my cover version of "Police" (The Proles, 1979) is now included in the description box (Featured Songs).
PLUS: My version of The Animals' 1965 classic, "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place," now over on Featured Songs, which I've also combined some tracks to free up some space.
PLUS: A 1:50 (in other words, nearly two hour) audio clip from Philadelphia, PA (7/10/18), where Mark Andersen and I appeared at Brickbat Books for our book, WE ARE THE CLASH: REAGAN, THATCHER & THE LAST STAND OF A BAND THAT MATTERED...plus, our pre-event interview with Joseph Gervasi, for Loud Fast Philly...over on the Spoken Word Tracks page. Our 60-minute clip from Politics & Prose (Washington, DC, 7/06/18) is there, too.
DELETED (FOR NOW): HAPPY TRAILS (LITTLE BUDGIE IS 47)...because I only have so much space. It'll return at some point, I'm sure. :-)
Comment capability's back for now, but stay on topic. If not...I'm taking the toys away again! :-) In the meantime: stay cool. ****
