Unsquare Uncup

I eat meat, fish and vegetables. My philosophy is~ we have all killed and been killed; we have all eaten and been eaten. This is the continuity of life, death and rebirth and today I feel like shining.  I hope to do it a little bit better each time around.

When I go a looking for something if I start out Googling; I first type Yahoo.com. Yup I prefer YAHOO. Then it is to the music I go. Today I went to  KJazz 88.1 FM to find the song on my mind at about 7:40 am this morning. It is the jazz song by the Dave Brubeck Quartet called  Unsquare Dance.005 I needed to get it right. This was all done after I went shopping, and after I took the groceries to the car. Also it was done after I looked up to get in the car and saw someone take a picture of me with their hand-held device from their car. I caught him. He was in a SUV. He had on a hat with a small goatee on his chin. He was around 45 to 50 something. Very creepy

Before I looked  up this song and after I went shopping and put my grocers in the car seeing a strange man take a picture of me;  I went crazy in the kitchen. I cooked up some scallops , sesame seeds, yellow squash and zucchini. I made black forest bacon and scallops without wooden spears to make my treat. I highlighted this all with some San Luis Obispo garlic sourdough bread and a uncup of my favorite coffee; Java Delight Donut Shop.

Flipside Fanzine / Magazine Classifieds Issue 50 cartoon..

This was so cute. I found it while looking through back issues researching for something else,

I am glad to see it again. I loved all the little images and ideas that fans of the punk scene sent us.

Rock On: A Little 4th of July story…

images

radiosphonos.com

There was a constant hum in the air during the day and yells and screams at night.

Twenty years of fireworks over our home was what I was born to. Across the San Fernando Valley the Woodland Hills Golf Course was a private club that displayed colorful bangs and loud lights across the valley. We enjoyed these free fireworks close to over our home each year. Neighborhoods were tight and my whole family was together. BBQ, potato salad and sparklers at night highlighted the wild nature of the 4th of July during the 60s and 70s of my life. Watermelons soaked with booze were ready and waiting and the German Telefunken radio was put on a bar stool outside. The music blurred all day along with the bang-bang from our mini canon gun. It was a day of constant motion and movement and trills of youth. There was a constant hum in the air during the day and yells and screams at night.

The many phases of life are like a bell curve. This was an on the top and a great part of life. Now with Mom and Dad gone this 4th is especially a time of grieving for what once was. Ya, the low part of the bell curve. Yet, I know times will change again, when my kids grow up and the family grows.

Dad dancing outside to music… was one of those times life seemed endlessly youthful… ya we were all dancing to Suzi Quatro..

Flipside # 16 Advertisement “Electrify Me” by The Plugz, First album ~ a little punk hersotry !!

“they are largely staphylococci (Staph) and are to be found for the most part in hospital wards and clinics, where they cause considerable trouble”

The staph on Los Angeles Flipside Fanzine issue 16 are Al, Jill Masters, Paul Problem, Nate, X-8, Pete Landswick, John Angola, Hud, Gerber, Gerald  and Dee & Hilda. This was the first issue where I was included as someone who caused considerable trouble.  I awoke this morning thinking about an advertisement for the Plugz that Gus and I did in this particular issue. He did not get credit on staph but he signed the contribution on the image as Caz 79.  Working on this issue was a great adventure and all the characters that were called staph were unique and inviting  in so many ways.

Ad in FLipside Fanzine # 16 by Gus Hudson and HudleyI was the model in this advertisement. What I love most from this issue is the map illustrated by  Dee & Hilda.  It is great to sit back and reflect upon it …. a time so long ago. It still Electrifies Me !!

(Look for a band and a place… it is fun to see what was really going on then!)

This is a very accurate map of our city-by Dee , Hilda, Al and Holly.

The Case of David Blevins aka Dave Damage

Dave and Pete photo by HudleyDave Damage &  Pete and a couple of gals…1980s..Ironic ya think?

He had the bluest eyes of a borderline serial killer,

He could memorize lyrics live,

Reciting them back after the show,

He also told me,

“Did you ever notice that you could carry a woman with your fingers like a six-pack of beer?”

PlasticRings

David wrote reviews for Flipside Fanzine in the early 80s,

He followed Helen Jewel to us,

We had fun…

Beers, jokes and solving puzzles from beer caps.

He then called us and came by excessively,

Becoming critical and argumentative,

While insulting our friends.

Once he called at 8 pm,

I pulled the phone plug,

We got back at 2 am,

I put the phone plug back in,

He was still calling us,

ring ring, ring ring….

Then there was the dog we buried near the Whittier dam on the Rio Honda River,

Helen, Al and me…

Dave hung the white long hair mutt on our front porch,

A poor dog he just got from the animal shelter.

A few years raced by…

we never saw him.

The only person to see him was a friend Mr Joe Hudson,

He saw him down town at a horror film festival…

Dave Damage 001

One day our friends Paul and Kori

Found an article in their local paper

Dave was a serial killer…

Caught in a love triangle,

He killed two women,

With a gun,

And rolled their bodies in two separate carpets,

And left them at the Beach,

He is serving two life sentences…

We’re going down the pub: Looking through the sly seductive eyes of Joe Jughead one of The Static Age guys…

 He brings another fun show at the Scotland Yard Pub in Canoga Park. I could not refuse this free show in my backyard with the Smears (UK), Plexikill, Ingenue and Government Trap. I missed Government Trap but did see their flyers everywhere. Some of us made little paper airplanes with them; flying promotional airplanes.

Ingenue is an all-girl band that has a certain kind of sound that I want to get lost in. That is what I look for in a band. That place where I get so lost in the sound that I forget myself. They also got to that point as well where they let go. That place where the line between band and audience fades away. Nice Bass sound and wildly played!!

Plexikill is a powerful band. Nice style with an awesome drummer. She had both feet going even if her left foot only seemed like it was vibrating up and down, cool…great sound!

Then came the headlining band from UK… The SMEARS. The lead singer Em reminded me of actress Rosalind Russell. They have a heavy musical current to their music. They played a few songs but not enough. It was like not having enough cake…or skimping on the orderves. A tease. I laughed when someone from the audience gave them shots of Sake then the singer said,

“Is this Semen?”

I like seeing new and different bands. I included the bands websites below. All the stuff ya need like names, show dates and a little free listening.

You don’t have to tell me
That the thing’s I do are wrong
But everything I do in life
Is with us right or wrong
Now I think I understand
How to have some fun

(You must trust your heart you are not insane)

Flipsideside Po Box 363

The last day of 2012 December 31st is the release of KFJC 89.7 FM tape number eight. This tape was released around 28 fucking years ago.  Where a  process of recording, organizing, mailing and airing  tapes live turned out to be a very successful project indeed !!…  Wow !! Projects took some time back in the 1980s. All sent through our post office box. The Flipside post office was a busy place in Whittier California. One little tiny post office box handled vast amount of gifts. Which consisted of records, mail, ads and money. It was like Christmas every day. Then there was the Post Office Master. A lady that I hated at first but who turned out to leave little gifts for us in our ‘pobox  each Christmas season. She thought we were weird at first with our wild ways… but later she became a part of our unofficial crew in her own dependable way.

Enjoy a cameo appearance by Henry Rollins.

KFJC FM RADIO TAPE 6 1984.”What’s changed?”

Flipside Fanzine Radio 1984

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA“What’s changed?”

Has saying “FUCK in front of your mom*” turned to shooting your mom down and are “the terrorists” now our own young men? This is what has changed mr jello biafra!

“It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.”
George Orwell, 1984

It was a brave new world…1984. Years later it is worse …and as I write this on the eve of, 6 days before, December 22, 2012…I think what a terrible year it has been for our children. Yet, from so many years ago this music seems as relevant today as it did then. It is saying something strange and uncanny to us now.

ff119fc2-3f9b-3059-aa3f-cf6c0043f451Antenna up I am listening to the new music but I am not caring as much as in my youthful days.

When people die life goes on, when an individual stops listening to new and up coming music…the music goes on.  This is the continuity of punk rock, new and underground music. This motif is and can be applied upon any underground scene. Back in 1984 it was tight, refreshing and crazy out of control… and this tape captures it.

This tape balances in some fun …lots. We all can use the humor to slap the sober out of our disbelief. Yes, finally the interview with Pat Fear of White Flag (some musical history humor)…also the Charged GBH mini interview and live Dead Kennedys from the Olympic Auditorium~ via Flipside Fanzine  live videos…

oh happy birthday Penelope Houston !!!! Today… Dec/17/2012

…another ironic touch down from the past to the present with Penelope Houston of the Avengers… a thread that pulls…listen to this tape and it will give you the chills!!

“The greater a man’s talents, the greater his power to lead astray. It is better that one should suffer than that many should be corrupted. Consider the matter dispassionately, Mr. Foster, and you will see that no offense is so heinous as unorthodoxy of behavior. Murder kills only the individual-and, after all, what is an individual?” – Aldous Huxley, Brave New World, Ch. 10

KFJC Radio Hosted by Hudley Flipside Tape number four

KFJC FLYER

The box was addressed to a rented room; it was part of a large old Victorian house in Rochester New York. The box contained several copies of Flipside Fanzine and 13 cassette tapes of KFJC. I guess AL Flipside felt sorry for me and mailed them.

Twenty years later the box has been with me on a long journey. In time I upgraded the cassette tapes to CDs. Then for the last 6 years the box, with CDs, was placed in a closet to mature almost as good as whiskey.

I often wondered what I would do with the tapes, and thought to just throw them away. I tried a few different approaches of presenting the discs, but lost interest.

Now, I have found the perfect place to present the tapes on my WordPress blog.  It was rather easy to do: I can rip the CDs through Windows Media changing their format to a compatible one to post on my WordPress blog. Good golly Mrs Molly !!!

These CDs preserve a part of Flipside Fanzine’s musical history which is all about the BIG PUNK ROCK.

I have not listened to them in 28 years. I admit to being embarrassed, humiliated and happily touched by the last three published tapes.

This was one of many examples of being MORE THAN A WITNESS….

Now for Tape Four 08/13/84…
