Duley’s Dollop of Million Kids June 29st residency at The Redwood Bar……..


I am going to try to remember….Couldn’t Comprehend the Comprehend band…but that’s because I didn’t get to The Redwood early enough….such is life….BC had told me prior that this band rocks….!

I don’t know if Sylvia Juncosa was rushed…or it was a short set…or something, but the set left me wanting some more….guess I’ll have to catch Sylvia’s next show …..

The mighty Carnage Asada…..if you haven’t seen this combination of musicians yet you either don’t like music….or your dead…..Steve Reed had to pull double duty tonight and he still murdered them skins……complete with George Murillo’s portrayal of Puppet from Rockero Flats……Damn…another Sunday Drive By…..!!! And it was only Tuesday…!!!

Although the whole residency rocked….I remember telling the Million Kids that the last show was going to be the best…..and sure enough……they had the whole place on their feet……Hell….even I thought I was part of the band for a moment….and I believe I was ….for a moment….it was the best run of “Wild in The Streets” for me yet….And I’ll have to agree with B.C…that second guitar does give a bigger crunch…..I know I want my sushi again and again…..

The Gears……If GQ magazine was at The Redwood that night they would have given Axxel G. Reese the fashion award….that son of a gun was looking pretty dapper…there was a small wardrobe malfunction before the set but “Mr. Tailor” a.k.a. Nubs Grumacher stepped in and lent a helping hand……with former Gears’ members Dave Drive and (please fill in…I forgot the bass player’s name) joining the fun for a few songs….this made for the topper of the evening and the residency where fun was had by all…….

Remember….this is one’s opinions and observations only..……live…….you know , from memory …….Thanks to all of you……you know who you are…..

Duley’s Dollop of July 3 at Mr. T’s Bowl……..


I am going to try to remember…The Mildred’s are four women who dress up in working class women’s garb and play slow rock music…..they were fun to look at….but the real show was outside when in my drunken stupor I mistook one of the fans for one of The Mildred’s…!!! Talk about putting your foot in your mouth…..!!! Sorry Tracie…..you were a good sport about it…..!!!!

Duley’s Dollop of July 6 at The Bordello……..


I am going to try to remember…The Richard Ramirez Beatdown….! Punk-o-rama-rama,.unfortunately there were technical difficulties with the lead guitar….Happy birthday Manny….!!! There was anger here……let it pass…!!!

My old pals from Kamikaze …..”Slay” one of their new songs on the new ep coming out…Rock hard crunch….!! One of the old favorites…”Your Tax Dollars at Work”..it came back to me as “Haunting Rock”….good to see this trio again…..

Hard psychedelic groove rock from Narwal Park…….it was as if Gary Numan joined a rock punk band……not punk rock…rock punk…..groovy…..

With DJ Cholo Carwash spinning the old favorites like “Nasty Habits” from Oingo Boingo….good clean fun…..!!

Remember….this is one’s opinions and observations only..……live…….you know, from memory …….Thanks to Summer for being very cordial…..Desiree..keep your chin up….

Duley’s Dollop of July 16 at The Crest……..


I am going to try to remember…Dynamite Rock from Brainspoon….!!! Don’t ask me what that is but that’s what I called it….Two hot chics fronting the band and rocking it up….musically that is…….I want to see Brainspoon again….!!

Finally got to see Sylvia Juncosa wail again…..this woman can really play guitar ….!!! Made for an awesome set….plus it was Steve Reed’s birthday this night….!!!

Love those Million Kids…..!!! I believe Josh is here to stay……Rock on you crazy kids….!!! Too bad I fucked up this night’s version of “Wild in The Streets”…..Maybe Hugh and I will start a singing duo…..Ha! Ha! Ha! The Kids’ set ended with the other band members getting on stage and doing a Buzzcocks cover….!!!

Saccharine Trust closed the night with a monster set……Jack was doing some kind of Yoga or acrobatics with one of the mic stands…..I think he broke it too….!!! Another one for the books…..!!!

Duley’s Dollop of July 23 at The Redwood……..


I am going to try to remember…Punky, surfy, funny, goofy, nutty rock from one of my favorite bands for a long time…The Thingz……!!! I believe they sing about seafood, food, and it’s interaction with rock and roll…..!!! Too bad they didn’t play my favorite…”Mastication Blues….” Listen to the lyrics and you’ll crack up because you’ll know…..!!! Thanks Kim and Mike….and extra special thanks to Jason for being super cool…..!!!

The first time I ever saw The Swords of Fatima was a few moons ago on a Bob Cantu show….I remember the drummer Nick even farther than that from the Popdefect days at Al’s Bar…..This duo really comes at ya….Buko plays some interesting riffs on her guitar…gotta hear it live to appreciate it….Nick is drummer extrodinaire…..uh… and he’s a rock star too….!! Ha! Ha! Ha!
