Subject: Re: hiya

you woke me up!

cherry red disc is still currently in the works. dunno much about specific timeline, street date. jan 08? it's gonna be the best official rsm cd ever (16 panel pull out poster insert, tons of text & miniature memorabilia images, just like those greatest UK historical reissues - done up RIGHT!). did i fwd you the tracklist? also, i remastered it on computer software, so the fidelity is stunning, like never before. mostly all old stuff, but pumped up to explosive audiophile.

upcoming gigs planning is still being sorted out too; trying to get an electric band together, but it's fuckin awful seeking dependable pals, able fast learners, convenient scheds for rehearsing etc. the whole dilemma driving me batty. chris bolger is the only constant (bass). might use my keyboard as a drummer. breetvld had a personal meltdown, so suddenly he had to cop out. latest news is maybe my old 80s drummer lee miller may attempt to unite with us. also, i really am intent on instead performing the newer rsm tunes: best of manuscription, yungmoore, unpop6, shrigleys, moored, etc. which makes the rehearsing workload even more important. musishnins: what a hassle! it's no wonder i sadly must prefer the ease of playing solo. where's ian when i need him? lol

and yeh, sorry this year has slowed down to a crawl, regarding new music. i know you crave it, i do too but i am losing the youthful stamina... naturally, there's a big handful of unfinished projects which i really do need to complete, mixdown, lay to rest... someday i promise, but perhaps all this crucial practicing for gigging is now prioritized over silly new music. i kinda hate recording anymore, really need an engineer bad... but my playing is as satisfying as ever. that's a good thing, relieved that i'm at least still 'making' sounds.

meanwhile, more good stuff coming to you soon; dvds for the amazing wfmu show, and other delights. plus a couple of new 1st time archive remasters. your pile is always building.

thanks eternally for the support and friendship, mate. i really need it moore than eva.

ya still quit smoking, eh? how long's it been? 3+ years for me.

don't wake me up!


Yup - got 'em. Unpops are great. Killer tunes one right after another. The dvd's are great too. I guess you've been busy with all the recent activity? What's the status of the Cherry Red? Are all the upcoming gigs going to be acoustic? I forgot how good Don't Wake Me Up is! What ambience.

-------------- Original message from (Marston Moor): --------------
> ya get the packages? much to discuss. hope you dig Unpops! got another
> stack of rare new stuff coming for ya, mainly video, wfmu show etc. not
> much new home recording, sorry. on hiatus. soon come.

Got Flomax?
Now Playing: ensemble ambrosius
age 55 and got a new ailment - that old urinary scare. frequency, urgency increased tenfold - gotta go constantly, then very little comes out. recently had a PSA test, no prostate cancer worries... but what's happening? blockage? enlarged bagism? aint got no doctor, no nurse, no plumbing inspector. sign of panic things to come. body shutting down, saving all my settings. golden showers circle jerks unite. wheel myself over to visit geriatric1927. cool granddaddio.

will gladly trade cdrs, dvdrs for flomax. extra strength, snorted with no-sodium salt substitute.

HQ sez: hi hi hi,

just got PRODUCT! terry burrows finally dispatched me a full box, semi-bulk limited quantity of the new official UK pressing of "YUNG & MOORE VERSUS THE WHOLE GODDAM STINKIN' WORLD" - nifty digipackage, explosive sound, and surely ultrarare 6 months from now.

did you ever get one? need one? say the word. but.....Hurry!



Wow, that is GREAT news!
That is one sweet album, btw (in my humble opinion, of course). Hope it generates some ca$h for you.
It IS a crime that the big stores aren't bulk ordering it. Or even the little stores!
Modern marketing practices suck.
So many bastards...


R: yep, this "item" should be all over the INDEPENDENT distributor lists, in indie stores, on indie KOLLEGE radio, indie press, indie best-of lists, blah blah blah... another 100% [commerce] failure... makes absolutely no sense whatsoever... literally thousands of young kid bands gettin the hype/push one after another... the marketplace competition is stifling.

Summer of Satanic proportions.......

Sat, Jul 22, 2006, 2:10pm



I absolutely crumbled at the MTC vet's office this morning, had to run out alone sobbing, severe nausea attack, while Krys completed witnessing the final moments. Still comes in waves, intense grief and symbolic shock. Last 20 years he's been my husbandbrother. The Valley Road Boy.

Was hoping, trying to be strong, aloof, insensitive to a degree. Caved in big time.

Still weak, shaken up, sore heart and burning eyes.

So sad. Sad! SAD!!!

Slow Down, World. NEXT!

Love is the ONLY answer. Quickly.

Subject: Dental Illness

hey, big big news, bad and good. been wanting to tell you all about this for awhile, but it's been quite a slowly developing saga and i had to gather my thoughts and info.

i'm having most of my bad teeth extracted, and will be getting dentures!

for years, my typical dental history has been of total avoidance, mainly because of basic unaffordability. and like many folks, i would/could prioritize any treatment *only* if severe pain required it. well, i've had my share of toothaches, but never suffered as much as watched my teeth deteriorate. breaking off, chipping off, falling out, you name it.

so in the past, say, 10 years, i became increasingly alarmed at the frequency with which i was losing them, but they were mainly in the back (less noticable). and so in the past 5 or less years, then they would be closer to the front (in view). began to get more and more self-conscious about it too. but, not much i could do...

this past may 19th, it finally happened: totally unexpected my front top left incisor tooth just crumbled in a mere bite of a soft english muffin. omigod. i naturally panicked. the ultimate embarrassment... Ol' Gaptooth. alfred e newman. i can never ever smile again??? krys and i immediately walked down to see a local dentist, and to start thinking how to determine the several options & estimated cost.

well, we told roger ferguson about this incident (obviously he already knew my teeth were a growing problem), and like the amazing financial help he and his 2nd wife dawn gave me years back for my second cataract surgery, they again offered to help pay for this major (expensive) dentures procedure. if you recall, her late husband left a huge amount in a charitable trust fund, for them to assist whoever they wished.

so, i had to make the final decision of which treatment choice to make, roger sent them a check paid in full, and now i am finally going through with the procedure: full dentures on upper and partial dentures on lower. which means multiple heavy duty extractions. yikes. i began on july 10. and today went back again for the second visit. extremely traumatic! extremely sore today, but i'll heal quickly in the coming days. it will take another month or more, i guess, before i finally start to get fitted and adjusted for FALSE TEETH BRIDGES! can't wait to finally EAT again. and smile large. regain a little self esteem...

but right now i only have 3 top teeth remaining, i suppose left there for anchoring purposes etc. i don't understand a lot of it. the whole thing seems so vague to me, hard to make concrete decisions on what's personally best for me. there's so many alternatives available. i simply don't wanna look bad nor do i wanna suffer further discomfort. so they're yankin them out.

welcome to my senior nightmare. drama 101.

anyway, that's the story, and i'm glad to finally tell you about it. wow. what a heavy scene.

god bless the fergusons.

Mood:  caffeinated
Now Playing: items at hand

Around The World With The Chipmunks (Liberty LRP 3170, 1961)

Possibly the funniest Chipmunks LP of all. Though the previous LPs feature the all time classic songs, this concept album is rock solid. The Chipmunks are circling the globe and, if such a thing is possible, engaging in semi-innocuous ethnic humor (Alvin in Scotland upon seeing a bagpiper: "How come the man in the dress is squeezing an octopus?"). The absolute highlight is the amazing "Japanese Banana." I can't recall how many musicians I've heard praise this as their favorite Chipmunks song. In it Alvin craves a food they can't get, and to an Eastern melody decides to torture Dave with the refrain, "Can I have a Japanese banana, it would be so very nice, want a juicy Japanese banana, don't want the cherries and rice. We can see that they have so many things, and we are glad that it's so, but do they grow a Japanese banana, that's what we'd like to know." The banter between an embarrassed Dave and an indignant Alvin is some of their funniest. Alvin: "That's the worst banjo player I've ever heard." Dave: "That's not a banjo, it's a samisan." Alvin: "That's the worst sam-i-san player I ever heard." The other great song is "I Wish I Could Speak French," in which Alvin tries to pick up a mademoiselle by musically lamenting his lack of language skillz with the smooth cadence and delivery of Chevalier. It ends with her going for him, to which he responds, "Oui? Oui?…WOW!" In Italy a gondolier doesn't appreciate the boys singing along and chides, "Hey you-a mouse-a, pipe down!" To which Alvin responds, "Mouse! Mouse! I'm Alvin the Chipmunk!" Gondolier: "Chipmunk, shmipmunk, silencio!" After another exchange the boys (to the tune of "O Sole Mio") sing, "Oh Gondolier-o, we are not mice, we're singing chipmunks, we told you twice!" When Alvin asks the bagpiper to use his "octopus," the piper responds, "Sure laddy!" The boys then start "rocking and rolling," and Dave has the nerve to say, "You're playing in the wrong key, Alvin!" Imagine that…denigrating a child's bagpipe skills during his first attempt to play the thing! This record was available with an awesome foil cover, but I don't think it appeared without the cartoon Chipmunks, as many of these skits were animated in the cartoon that premiered around the time this was on the shelves. (JA)

The Alvin Show (Liberty LST 7209, 1961)

This album, the soundtrack to the TV show, features audio versions of comedy bits and songs that appeared on the very funny program. After opening with the bouncy theme song ("This is The Alvin Show, The Alvin show…") we hear the story of the Margaret Dumont-esque Mrs. Frumpington, an anti-Rock crusader from the pre-P.M.R.C activist group the Society for Quiet and Universal Appreciation of Refined Enterprises." Upon introduction Alvin comments, "And you are he head of the S.Q.U.A.R.E.s, I take it." She then (oblivious of the Chipmunks' identities) demonstrates what she sees as the most heinous of all music by playing snippets of the Chips' rockin' tunes, "Comin' Round the Mountain," "Old MacDonald Cha Cha Cha" and "Witch Doctor." Alvin begins to brutally curse her out but Dave stops him. So Alvin goes into plan B: "I decided Mrs. Frumpington was going to sing my kind of music whether she likes it or not!" He goes to her house, gives her a flower, then starts discussing nature while his brothers hide outside and play instruments. He has her consider her love of the wind through the branches (guitar plucking), the sound of the bullfrog (bass fiddle) and the birds (a fake woodpecker playing percussion). As she starts to get more and more swept up into the rhythmic groove he asks, "Do you like families? Don't you just love a baby, a baby…?" She responds, "A baby? A baby, a baby baBY BABY!" Now that he has her worked up he asks, "And how about a daddy, a daddy…?" "She has now lost control to the demon rhythms of Rock and Roll and starts screaming, "DADDY, DADDY ,DADDY, BABY, BABY, BABY!" A full horn section kicks in as she works herself into an erotic climax, "BABY BABY BABY, DADDY DADDY DADDY BABY BABY BABY! Ohhhhhh!" She can't get out of the groove and howls her orgasmic Rock n' Roll vocals until men in white coats take her away. Thus, the most sexually charged kiddie record ever proves that everything this woman feared was true, Rock music is Satan. The album side ends by attempting to desexualize Alvin a little by reprising "I Wish I Could Speak French," but ending it by having Alvin's sexy encounter with the French gal turn out to be nothing but a (wet) dream. Side two opens with a TV interview. The boys sing a song (a new version of "Chipmunk Fun") to the reporter about what they like to do (play baseball, go swimming…watch Gunsmoke). The song and interview end with David pleased at their good behavior, but as the TV dude signs off Alvin reprises the tune with new, naughty lyrics. "I like to break dishes and fight with the squirrels, I like to pull pigtails when they're on girls, we like to eat candy and talk in school. but we don't like to study math, arithmetic makes me sick…" "I knew it," laments David. Perhaps the squirrel line was a jab at their animated rivals, The Nutty Squirrels. We then meet Clyde Crashcup, a scientist character introduced for the cartoon. His humor is very Ernie Kovacs-esque, but it doesn't really fit in with the rest of the stuff. Dave then starts "Witch Doctor" solo, but the boys stop him and they sing it together. The album ends with a reprise of the TV theme, some goodbyes, and a few more Crashcup jokes. All in all, perhaps the wildest Alvin album ever. (JA)
