Yeah well, how was that? It's like ridin' a tricycle--you never forget HOW? but you git kinda wobbly when that third wheel opens up to reveal yr teen fanzine is now flabby 'n crabby. What the FUH--y'know? We is what we are. Now bow yr worthless heads and prey on the god who ain't there in memory of the reluctant love god DON KNOTTS. I remember sittin' in the Locke Theatre at Saturday afternoon kiddie matinees in Jackson, Alabamy, as a little 1960s kid, laughin' and relatin' to Don as the nervous, lovable hero of The Ghost and Mr. Chicken and The Reluctant Astronaut. But I had to go at night to see the "adult" M-rated spectacle of Don as a virginal Hef-type mag publisher in The Love God? (Yes, youngsters, there was once an M rating. For "Mature"--haw! Dig this kid at imdb.com: "The Love God is a funny movie. don knotts is very funny but notice this movie is PG-13 but it is still funny! i'm 13 years old. i own the movie it is good! the other don knotts movies are not rated!") And yeah, all them great B&W episodes of Andy G, and Mr. Furley made that stupid Three's Company shitcom a lot more tolerable (am I the only one who thought Joyce DeWitt was foxier than Suzanne Somers?). And speakin' of foxy, here's a photo of them darn Magik Markers from a recent gig. . . .

Anyhow, that's it for now. I'll see y'all next time with the 2nd installment of the new Slippy Town Times. Meanwhile, you might wanna check out THIS shit too:

BERGS
Cartoon by longtime Crawlspacer Joe Dean. Groovy.

BOOKS ONLINE (public-domain texts you can download)
Online Library of Literature
H. G. Wells, Mark Twain, Mary Shelley, Poe, Dickens, etc.
Bibliomania
Check out Jonathan Swift.

CAPTAIN BEEFHEART
The Radar Station
Great site with just about everything you can imagine related to Mr. Van Vliet and company.

GET YOUR WAR ON
Hysterically funny anti-war comix.

HEAVY METAL PARKING LOT / ERNEST BORGNINE ON THE BUS
Video verite at its most gripping!

RICHARD MELTZER
Richard Meltzer's "Vinyl Reckoning"
A huge piece on records by one of the originators of so-called rock journalism, but don't hold that against him! From The Chicago Reader.

CHARLES MINGUS
Unofficial Mingus Website
Serious, no-bullshit site dedicated to the music of the great composer/musician/improvisor. (The "official" Mingus site, run by widow Sue Mingus, is full of bullshit hype for current product and Mingus cover bands. Ugh.)

MX-80
Official website of the long-running avant-rock combo.

RED HOT BANDS 1895-1929
Lots of early jazz you can listen to in Real Audio. Dig the Dixieland Washboard Band's "Cushion Foot Stomp"! Thrill to the banjo solo on "Get Easy Blues" by Lil Hardaway's Orchestra! 23 skidoooo!

BUDDY RICH BERATES HIS BAND
Psychotic and hysterical!

THE SONICS
The greatest of all 1960s garage rockers! Not to mention the greatest of all Pacific Northwest rockers!

SUN CITY GIRLS
As far as I'm concerned, this trio is the best rock band of the past 25 years. The Bishop brothers and Mr. Gocher can do pretty much ANYTHING they want to do. If you still don't know, check 'em out.

WANG DANG DULA
Hep site devoted to pre-psych R&R/R&B/C&W craziness. Lots of stuff here, including discographies for the gonest artists (Hasil Adkins, Don & Dewey, Dick Curliss, Hound Dog Taylor, Billy Lee Riley, Sam The Sham, etc.) and the wildest labels (Sun, Chess, Ace, Excello, Specialty, Etiquette, etc.).

WFMU RADIO ONLINE
Hear this fine NJ station on your computer.

 
CHEERS, Y'ALL! (CIRCA 1986): Eddie Flowers (Crawlspace / Gizmos / Slippy Town) and Todd Homer (Hollywood Squaretet / Angry Samoans / Mooseheart Faith Stellar Groove Band).
