Little Danny's avatar View Little Danny's profile Options

Postwar atmospherica. High bop modernism and Afro-Latin sounds, twilight exotica and soundtrack moods, soul stompers and weepers, hypnotic R&B and blues, mystical '60s pop, lonely country, lonelier rock 'n' roll, instrumental weirdness, electronic creaking. Bringing worlds beyond into the worlds at hand.

Sorry. Danny zoned out working on a presentation for my class on Saturday. Have to talk about binary search trees.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm coelacanth∅:

okay i found a picture of Roky donning cape.
how shall i waste my time next?
Avatar 10:14pm Little Danny:

@Flash: last-minute inspiration from your various Demon themes this evening!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:14pm coelacanth∅:

oh right -kid congo powers...
Avatar 10:14pm Little Danny:

@melinda: fuck yeah jazz flute! Also, hello!
Avatar 10:15pm Little Danny:

Franco, fleep, Matt from N.O. What a pleasure.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:17pm coelacanth∅:

"kid congo powers wearing a cape" results in only pictures of kids wearing capes. (and one little red riding hood)
Avatar 10:26pm Franco Twinkie:

I know there is a video of Monsieur Powers in Le Cape, but I guess we need authentication or it's hearsay. Put this one on ice, while I look.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:28pm JtotheK:

Hiya Danny, hi everyone. That Antiques 45 was pretty great!
Avatar 10:33pm Little Danny:

'ello Jason!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:33pm coelacanth∅:

hey JK

Franco i'm having a cape made for myself as we speak. as soon as it's done i can go investigate these allegations myself.
  10:37pm Dean:

I'm snooping around for pix of KCP w/ cape and it occurs to me maybe Franco is thinking of JLP w/ cape. Can't find pix of that, either, but I did stumble across this: https://cvltnation.com/ghost-on-the-highway-the-gun-club-documentary-now-showing/

That's Pat Ronaine to the right, former Bags bassist, former customer at the record shop where I worked, former salesperson at the cosmetics department of a nearby department store where we'd chat. And at left is Terry Graham, ex-spouse of Lois, with whom I rode into downtown LA most mornings in the early '80s. No capes.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:37pm doctorjazz:

Hello...Cool set!
Avatar 10:40pm Franco Twinkie:

I got a confirmation on Powers/cape sighting. You gotta dig for it, so just take my word.
Avatar 10:43pm Franco Twinkie:

Jeffrey Lee wore an admirals blazer but never a cape.
  10:44pm Dean:

Hard to prove a negative, Franco...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:44pm fleep:

Do ponchos next
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:45pm coelacanth∅:

do ponchos NOW!
Avatar 10:46pm Franco Twinkie:

Good point Dean. Kid and Jeff wore cocktail dresses now and then.
  10:46pm johnzo:

greetings from detroit! driving home on 8 mile
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:47pm coelacanth∅:

well, whatever. i wore a cape when i was 5.
Avatar 10:49pm Little Danny:

Hey Doc, hey Dean!
Avatar 10:49pm Franco Twinkie:

Fleep, ponchos were 'covered' on a previous show.
Avatar 10:50pm Little Danny:

Heya Johnzo! Man I love Detroit (and Michigan in general). Do you live there or are you just passing through?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:50pm fleep:

... serapes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:51pm doctorjazz:

Vibe heaven!
Avatar 10:52pm Little Danny:

@Franco: Is there a canonical list anywhere with all the be-caped musicians you've compiled thusfar? I'm losing track...
Avatar 10:52pm Little Danny:

Heh, I was just thinking of you during the intro to this track, Doc
Avatar 10:53pm Franco Twinkie:

Serapes? Why the hell not! I will start things off with Billy Strange.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:53pm coelacanth∅:

then do monocles next. i'm sure several of our musical heroes rocked the monocle.
Avatar 10:54pm Little Danny:

Monocles would be amazing
Avatar 10:54pm Franco Twinkie:

Art Tripp aka Ed Marimba -Monocle.
  10:54pm johnzo:

yurp, I live by Dutch Girl Donuts
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:57pm coelacanth∅:

well how the hell does that thing stay put while he's drumming?!
Avatar 10:57pm Franco Twinkie:

Danny the list is in the Cool Blue Flame archive for all those who are doing scholarly research.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 10:59pm JtotheK:

Miss Lavell and Little Mack ... had to do brief internet research on both, one appears attainable ... the other not so much. (Little Mack was on Sun Ra label...whoa!)
Avatar 11:02pm Little Danny:

@J2tK: also the Jessie Crawford is reasonably attainable

Did we mention Dave Vanien in the first round?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:12pm coelacanth∅:

cape, serape, poncho or monocle?
Avatar 11:13pm Little Danny:

@Flash: Yep! It really nails the ambience
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:13pm coelacanth∅:

good detective work chresti
  11:14pm Dean:

Dave is Pat's spouse. Warms my heart.
Avatar 11:15pm Franco Twinkie:

I would put Dave in catagory#1 -capes.
  11:18pm Dean:

I would put Dave in category "lead singers whose band's first albums I'd want interred with my corpse in my sepulcher."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:18pm chresti:

This is the song of wonder
Avatar 11:18pm Franco Twinkie:

I would imagine Dave and Pat have matching his and hers lounging capes in plaid flannel in addition to the traditional vampire black.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:20pm coelacanth∅:

Franco, like you and chresti?
  11:21pm Dean:

Buddy of mine just emailed with an updated list of available shows he has collected, among which:

Damned Germany 1981
Damned 3 shows from 1982
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:21pm coelacanth∅:

...actually i imagine chresti has a little red riding hood cape and you have a batman cape.
Avatar 11:22pm Franco Twinkie:

Chresti and I have matching mariachi suits we wear to the recycling center.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 11:23pm chresti:

I've always wanted a hooded cape

Avatar 11:40pm Franco Twinkie:

Bloody Hell, how could I forget The Count Five! On the back of their only album on the Double Shot label the whole band is wearing capes standing in front of a Victorian house in the blinding daylight, which I imagine is in the Transylvania neighborhood of San Jose.
Avatar 11:41pm Little Danny:

Oooo... capes. Has anyone mentioned the Count Five yet? www.discogs.com...
  11:43pm Dean:

Liberace? Ozzy?

Just put my daughter to sleep with Chopin's Nocturnes c/o Livia Rev.

  11:44pm Ignore Function:

Great stuff, LD.
Avatar 11:46pm Little Danny:

Thank you Ignore Function! Always pleased when you pop up here
Avatar 11:46pm Little Danny:

OMG Liberace. Of course.
Avatar 11:47pm Franco Twinkie:

Also, on the back of that album is a picture of the Count Five with fans from Roosevelt High in East Los Angeles. You can also see a camera with KCOP channel 13 filming the performance.... Don't get me started on channel 13!

Thanks Danny. The show made the slideshow creation flow right by. Have a great night everyone.
