1979… 20 oF ANoTheR KiNd PuNK CoMP eL Pee… Th’ ONe ThaT ‘DiD iT’ fer me…

Posted in audio,mp3,music by ynot on the May 2nd, 2010

20 oF ANoTheR KiNd… 1979 PuNK NeW WaVe CoMPiLaTiON ALbuM

otay… in sum discussions i’ve had /w/ sum pee-poop-les on th’ eff-bee ( facebook )
i’ve already stated that any ‘punk’ that considered himself / herself …
‘part of a scene’… in a loose groop-ing of so-called self identified ‘outsiders’…
was more than likely somebody really ‘looking to belong’…
and that was always th’ prob i had /w/ ‘the scene’…
i tend to be v. wary of ‘cliques’ & i also tend to rather deliberately…
fail anybody’s/everybody’s ‘purity tests’…

i ‘got into’ punk/new wave purty early on mainly cuz i hung around /w/ an older crowd…
after all my peer groop hadta go home & du homework in order to…
better prepare fer “life, etc…”
fer better ( or mostly likely wurst )
i didn’t really have an active parent / ‘cohesive family  unit’…
that was too concern’d /w/ my well-being…
the term then was ‘latch-key kid’…
and i had purty much started taking care of myself in 1973…
when i was 9 yrs old after we had furst moved up t’ ynkrs
fum fish ave in th’ boston post rd gun hill section of th’ boogie down bx…

but i digress…

the one thing that was ‘good’ about my so-called…
‘relationship’ /w/ my mom was this…
i had already heard all th’ classic rock as it was kinda happening…
and in a weird way… since i was literally a ‘kid’…
like only 6yrs old x-mess 1970…
when mi step-dad’s parents had given me a transistor radio…
( it was purty x-pensive prob like $25-30… )
( kinda like giving an ipod to a 6yr old nowadays… )
which i would listen to under th’ cvrs…
waaaay past midnight… i was more ‘interested in’…
th’ top 40 ‘bubblegum’ type pablum of th’ early 7o’s…

so to cut to the chase…
here i was in L8 ’76 riding around on my flat black painted…
schwinn stingray /w/ ashtabula fork & stem…
plus ‘thee latest best fad thing’…
i had bought /w/ my newspaper route dinero… motomags…
that at that point i had to order fum reggie pink…
bmx had started as ‘adjunct’ in backpages…
of motocross action motorcycle magazine…
and i would ride around central pk ave…
mostly btwn central bike mart where i was starting to ‘help out’ / ‘go-fer’…
and later at nite @ the speed shop across from caldors…

and SO being a REaSoNabLy PReCoCiOUs 12yr OLd ‘NY-eR’…
i was ALReady QUiTe AWaRe…
that KiSS was Thee BeST NY band out there then
( OR So i ThouGhT Then & YeS.. )
( CaN & WiLL CoNTiNue to defend… p’haps in L8R PoST… )

and that The Who & Led ZeP were…
The BeST HaRd RaWk bands iN Th’ WeRLd

so here i was hangin around /w/ this OLdeR CRoWd…
and there was one dude that ALWaYs would PLaY…
Th’ RaMoNes on his 8Trak deck in his…
( fum my admittedly hazy memory )
GoLd CaMaRo…
and there’d be like 4-5 of us piled in th’ car…
i’d be in th’ BaCkSEaT ( and th’ ONLy ‘UNdeRaGe’ ONe )
my bike sometimes thrown in th’ TRuNk…
and when “BEaT oN The BRaT” would play…
this ‘dude’ would take out this LiL MiNi-BaT…
that i ONLy found out ( re-remembered ) coupla yrs ago…
when i saw one on e-bay hit like $125 smackers…
was an ACkTUaL RaMoNes ‘PRoMo iTeM’…
and he / they would tap me on th’ head with Th’ BaT…
and i CaN SPeCifiCaLLy ReCaLL this ONe NiGhT…
where we were driving on GRaMaTaN AVe…
listening to ALiSoN STeeLe ‘The NiGhTBiRd’ on WNEW…
and she said… “We’ve been waiting til AFTeR MidNiGhT…
t’ PLaY ThiS ONe… The band that EVeRYONe iS TaLkiNG about…
Th’ SeX PiSToLS… “ANaRChy iN The UK”…
and ALL oF US iN The CaR LiSTeN’d VeRy iNTeNTLy…
then after it was dun… sumone…
( prob the dRiVeR as he was Th’ REaL ‘PuNkeR’ )
said… “iT’s ALRiGhT, but NoT aS Good oR as FaST as The RaMoNes!”

so as i Said B4 i was PuRTy obSeSSiVe about…
LiSTeNiNG t’ Th’ Radio…
and i liked EVeRyThiNG… and YEah… that ALSo iNCLuded…
the dREaded ‘DiSCo’… cuz again…
i grew up in th’ BRoNX hearing AL GReeN, CuRTiS MaYfieLd & Th’ JaCkSoN 5…
ALONG /w/ seeing ALL th’ HiT MoToWN ACTs on Th’ Ed SuLLivaN sho…
Re-RuNs iN SyNdiCaTiON…
so it was hard fer me t’ see distictions / barriers where…
i already didn’t believe / understand why such barriers should exist…
i LiVed ( AS i du NoW ) in ‘iNTeReSTiNG TiMes’…

again i digress…

WNEW & WPiX were Thee NuWaV Radio in Th’ LaTTeR 7T’s…
and i ViVidLy ReCaLL MaNy FRi AFTeRNooNs…

LiVe @ Th’ CheeTah ( 1967 Audio FideLiTy CoMP eL Pee ) – ESQUiRes ( Dante Renzi )

Posted in audio,mp3,music,Westchester NY Records by ynot on the March 5th, 2010

otay…
this is FiNaLLy th’ follow-up t’ mi fLeekin 2nd post… ( already 3 yrs ago! )
nu blog friend bill donovan ask’d fer it… so here ’tis…
LiVe aT The CheeTah 1967 Audio fideLiTy LP FRoNT
The CheeTah Club was located @ Th’ OLd Riviera Ballroom @ 53rd & Broadway…
a prime mid-town location that was operated by Borden Stevenson…
( son of th’ then late senator Adlai Stevenson )
but enuff ’bout th’ club fer now…
( i may update more so def e-mail me & bookmark this page if innarrest’d )

let’s jump straight t’ th rekkid…following th’ then ‘trend’ this comp is really a cvrs alb…
and mostly of inarrest t’ me is th’ lokel band…
The ESQUiRes…
Jeff Ginman – lead voc, harmonica, tambourine
Rockin’ Dante Renzi – Bass
Jay Savino – gtr
Danny Mahony – Organ
Mike Rubin – drums
who turn in decent enough Stones, Little Anthony & The iMPeRiaLs cvrs…
as well as a rendition of Lil Stevie Wonder’s ’66 hit…
Uptight (Everything’s Alright)

okay, so as this is really sorta a ‘FuRST dRaFt’…
let’s get right t’ th’ songs fer now…
The ESQUiRes – ”PaiNT iT bLaCk!”

The ESQUiRes – ”GeT oFF Mi CLoud!”

The ESQUiRes – ”OuT oF Mi HEad”

The ESQUiRes – ”UPTiGhT!” ( OuT oF SiGhT! )

MaRk ShaW & The PRoPheTs – ”Good LoViN”

MaRk ShaW & The PRoPheTs – ”PaPa’s GoT a bRaNd NU BaG!”

ThuNdeRfRoG ENSeMbLe – ”BaBy DoN’T PuT Me ON!”

and finally… ThuNdeRfRoG ENSeMbLe – ”EVeRybody Needs SuMbody!”

otay… now v. qwikly…
here’s where this ‘sorta neatly ties in…’ —> ffwd back to circa summer 1985… ( ?! )
Jim Gibson & i had sorta tried t’ start a ‘band’…
( we nvr even got t’ th dreaded ‘naming stage’… )
and th’ drummer we had found was DaNTe ReNZi Jr!
he was a WiCk’d Good dRuMMeR…
and had prev ( i believe / seem t’ remember ) been in ARMed FoRCe…
a ‘sumwhut lokel’ ( i believe they were queens/bx/ynkrs ) HM HEaVy MeTaL bar-band…
( i MaY even post their demo – if i can find it! – and if anyone is innarrest’d… )
( if inarrest’d pls t’ e-mail me… )
well… i can tell yu that we ‘TRied’ t’ du sum cvrs…
SLaYeR – “CheMiCaL WaRfaRe!”…
and th’ Then V. PoPuLaR ( thx to heavy mtv airplay )
SUiCidaL TeNdeNCies – “iNSTiTuTiONaLiZed…”
but my vokels were more than creaky…
i jest couldn’t du anything that didn’t sound ‘geeky’…
so we practiced mebbe 3-4 times & decided t’ jest pack it in…
well that’s enuff fer this draft/post/ fer now…
mebbe more to come? ( i dunno… )

oh yeah… here’s th’ back cvr…

but here goes band line-up… fum th’ liner notes…

Rod McBrien – Bass, Lead Vocal
Born Amityville, Long Island NY June 20, 1948, attended Amithyville High School & Hofstra College in NY – originally a recording engineer for such performers as The Jaggerz, Jimi Hendrix, The Hollies & many others. Rod’s hobbies are tennis, football & baseball. His favorite performers are The Googles. He’s a nice guy.

David Spinozza – Guitar, Vocal
Born in Port Chester, NY August 9, 1949, attended Mamaroneck High School in NY. Dave’s amazing creativity has made him the leading studio guitarist in New York. He was chosen by Paul McCartney to be the featured guitarist on his latest lp. Dave’s hobbies are water skiing and diving and his favorite performers are The Band & Stevie Wonder. He’s really a nice guy.

Jessica Harper – Vocalist
Born Chicago, Illinois October 3, 1949, attended North Shore County day School, Winnetka, Illinois & Sarah Lawrence College, Bronxville NY. Before joining The Goggles, she appeared in the Broadway production of ‘Hair’ for one year. Jessica’s favorite hobby is “peace”. Rod & Dave like her.

Mark Lockhart – Drums
Born in New York City October 21, 1949, attended Christ The King High School in NYC and is presently attending Queens College. Mark has been playing with several East Coast rock groups before joining the Goggles. His favorite performers are the Beatles & James Brown. He’s cute.

which happened to be ‘RAM’
most of th’ trax were co-written by Eddie Newmark & ‘D. LaRue’…
Eddie Newmark is also credited as Producer…

here’s a Waaay O-erlook’d PSyCh alb
about which too litlle is known…
mebbe this post will help dig up sum mor infos…
fum VeRNoN JoYNSoN’s indispensdible…
‘FuZZ, ACid, fLoWeRs’ 1993 BoRdeRLiNe UK book…
‘A New York based band who probably included Michael Gayle since he wrote all of the songs on their album, which was arranged, directed and produced by Bob Crewe. By far the best cuts are on side one. “TiNkeRbeLL’s MiNd”, “PRiNCes oF The GiNGeRLaNd”, and “ChiLd oF DaRkNeSS” ( JouRNey oF a ChiLd TRaVeLLeR ) are all symphonic psych pop in Procul Harum vein, which are worth seeking out. Also of note is “Happy to have you Here Again”, which has a goodtime feel about it with some chirpy keyboards and nice harmonies.’
otay… yr editor here…
i’m gonna step out on a line here…
i think this groop also like LoVe…
was an early ‘MuLt-CuLTi’ band…
with th’ KeWL SiLVeR FOiL CVR it’s really sorta hard to tell…
( i think deliberately so )
but th’ guy in th’ foreground left… ‘looks african-american’…
and i’ll be damned if “TiNkeRbeLL’s MyNd” doesn’t sound like a durn…
LoVe ‘forever changes’ outtake…

which yu can find here
yu can find th’ follow up t’ this ‘ShiPWReCk’… here
along /w/ sum infos on band members / groop history…
they also apparently had a buncha pre-lp singles spanning ’64-’67…
i think those have since been collected…
on some sorta easy t’ find cds…
but t’ me…
this is their best…
at times it reminds me most of…
SeCoNd HaNd ‘REaLiTy’ ( a def top 25 desert island disc round here! )
esp on ‘CaPiTaL PuNiShMeNT’ which combines…
that particular ‘brit blooz sike sound’…
this style much more ‘easy goin’ / laidback…
but with unique instrumentation / incongruent sound ‘verite drop-ins’…
than most of th’ other neiderbeit hard blooz sike…
here’s a purty kewl 1989 reunion clip…
