A Blast from the Past

Please indulge me for a moment MS readers. Long lost musical recordings from a previous life have begun to surface on the internet and I just wanted to share them. This is from our 1986 album, when the last thing on my mind was LA politics. I'm the big haired guy on the left in the picture, and the lead singer of this band. Enjoy the craziness that was LA in the 80's!

I had no idea you used to be in this band! I remember you guys opening for Jane's Addiction at the Scream Club back in the day. Wow, the times have certainly changed!

As long as it's not about CD2, I listen to it.

Yeah, I can see how this is much more relevant than me doing stories on the dangerous side characters involved in LA politics.

Joe B's hair band days must be respected!

Yikes.

You went from being the big haired guy on the left to the big mouthed guy on Mayor Sam.

Listeners beware! Analyze these lyrics carefully. Don't let Joe fool you. This was, in fact, a Nostradamus-like prophecy about the unmentionable recent cataclysm in the North. Some clues;

Cold SEPTEMBER- When was the primary election? SEPTEMBER

And the line- "YOU MUST NOT BE ON MY SIDE..." Hmmmm?

And the real kicker- "Looking UP at them...." AhHa! Where is ST on the map?- You guessed it! UP!

Finally, I reversed the mpg file and played it backwards- One can clearly hear a demonic voice (apparently Joe) saying "one three one two" over and over- the EXACT percentage of Krekorian's victory over Essel this week! WOW!

Good job Joe!

Good job Joe B. It's like a slice of my life in 1986, except that mine was in Cleveland. And my hair was bigger. Funny that musicians end up liking politics. There are quite a few of them.

You declared yourself an "entertainer" on your mayoral papers.

Let us see an example of your skills and we"ll be the judge. Let us see how much "respect" you deserve!

Put your money where your mouth is, or shut up.
