Sober post for a change. I'm a member of a punk group on Facebook and I had a wry chuckle when I saw someone post this today...
Do you like KISS? I teach guitar and had a student attend for years and he has brought their songs to learn. Recently I challenged him to learn the entire catalog in order from the earliest to the latest. I'm really getting into Parasite and some of the early songs. They sound very garage and punk to me but well played with a lot of attitude. I'm surprised how much I enjoy the band. Anybody else here infected?
No one ever said punks didn't have a bunch of bozos in their number.
Endut! Hoch Hech!

The keyword here is “infected.”

Though, as the Replacements have proven, if you play the songs far better than KISS did, they turn out ok.

THE FIRE-BREATHING BEATLES
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

Let's see: the geezer's wearing a Beatles shirt first, then a KISS shirt. Also has a northern accent. Hmmm...

My flight from Oakland came back too soon to see Ace play a solo show...on a Monday night...in some dive hole in Berkeley. It was advertised on a telephone pole above a tranny XXX peepshow flyer...top billing!!!

I rewatched that documentary on the Kiss or Kill scene this morning, taking notes and coming up with discussion questions because I'm showing it in my class this fall. I read a blog review of it as well, which had some comments and corrections from scene members. One guy was in a key band and he suggested a big reason why the scene collapsed was litigation hassles from the God of Thunder and Lawsuits, who seemed to think his music corporation was the only one that could use the word Kiss. Why does this seem entirely plausible to me?

I'd never heard of the Kiss or Kill scene.

The whole world has heard of KISS.

Both things being true, it makes sense that that asshole would want to sue.

Happy birthday Gene, who is 69 today. I wonder how many 69's he's had in his time?

Infinitely more than a person of his character deserves.
