The original members are playing theirfirst show together in many years atClub Vodka on FEB 24, 2007

The Knitting Factory – Hollywood, CA
7021 Hollywood Blvd.
One Block East of LaBrea
Los Angeles CA,

We are going to play “Blackout in the Redroom” in it’s entirety.

It’s like riding a bike sort of, the fun part is thatI’m talking to the guys. One thing that I forgot ishow loud live music is, standing next to Joe’s kit isintense, he’s smashing the drums and I’m a few feet awayand it feels like I’m in a war zone or a heavy industrial factory.

The bass is painful to play, lucky for me that when you play for as many years as I did the balls on the tips of your fingers never go away so it hurts but not that bad.

Well, I’m going to rock at this gig but there’s no way I could hump the cross, I mean it makes me laugh to think about the mindset it took to do that. I used to gig in a trance, not just loaded.

I am fit, and I have the moves and I still am on the crazy side, but the idea of a 47 year old man shirtless humping the budcross seems not only undignified but also a bit perverted or shall I say obscene. So I will spare us all the embarasment. But, that’s not to say that I won’t do it in the future.

I will post my unobjective observations of the Club Vodka show, until then so long.
