Hey kats and kittenz, my band is playing in Satan's own arsehole tommorow (aka Brooklyn, NY USA). Yep, the mighty Caterwaul Of Sound will be doing what we do best... drinking; oh yeah... and playing GONZO GARAGE RAWK. With an open bar for the hour preceding us going on stage!!!!!! That is the recipe for trouble. As is Missus Nomad accompanying me and apparently some ex girlfriends from my college years might be in attendence. Hmmm... women, alcohol and emotions - THAT'S a recipe for trouble! Or Rock n Roll!
And, as an added bonus, your humble host will be opening the show (despite protests from the rest of the band) with a bass only rendition of the overture to Rush 2112 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hey- I had a request for Squirrel Bait... so here is SKAG HEAVEN. For those of you who don't know who Squirrel Bait is- I would describe them as Motorhead sounding pre-pubescents from America's heartland (aka Kentucky). Some of em later developed into SLINT - math rock. Hmm....
Davey and I saw them way back 'round '86 or so. We were expecting some Nazareth/St. Vitus looking satanic mofo's and instead 5 fresh faced teens take the stage and melt everyone's ears. At one point I pissed off the guitar player by yelling out (in homage to Jerry Garcia) "the fat kid rocks". He gives me the old stink-eye and goes, "so I'm the fat kid, huh?". Then of course they went back to rocking.
Have a bitchin' holiday weekend!
