Goner Message Board / Upcoming Shows For Goners Everywhere / Lyres triumphant return to the Crescent City, w/ Reigning Sound
Posted: Jun 22, 2005 10:04 pm
Lyres w/original members; Jeff Monoman Conolly, Rick Coraccio, Paul Murphy, Danny McCormack. Is a show for Goner fans everywhere, at least in the south, since it's been more than a decade since Lyres have graced the south. Expect a tremendous show (from Reigning Sound, too)! Performances are to celebrate completion of feature length film,
Wayne County Ramblin'.

Oh right. We saw his band play at a chemical plant of some sort on the river in Brooklyn. Purple Wizard?
There was another nickname for him besides the Vanilla gorilla. What was it?

I was to be the one to go away. I have come into my own and soon you shall also.

We will be as one again soon.

We will not 'be as one again soon', you are a Goner, "Jennifer Gibbons". You were the one that went away, and a lot further than Wales, too. I've been told that one way to be rid of a zombie is through turpentine and strike anywhere's. Besides, you drifted off-topic, and you have caused me to do the same--which is why you were the one to have gone away.
I miss you,
but never again.
Thee J. G.

you'll have to take that up w/ 'Vanilla Gorilla's' agent, it's all legal and with good intent. You can see a credit for Bill Peitsch as well as a photo of him with a yellow-headed Sandra Kramer-Shaw, aka 'June Bug' at
and another (w/out squinting) at
He is a star and revered by many, and deserves much more prominence.
that nickname could have been Boll Weevil, or a swill of many others.
I think you're right about that show in Brooklyn with the Purple Wizard.
That was right after they told him he could no longer sing with the Yeah Yeah Yeah's.

Is there gonna be a dvd released?

Purple Wizard is great but I miss the Churchkeys. Ale up!
Posted: Jun 23, 2005 5:19 pm
Ale up all the time! Who doesn't miss the Churchkeys, even when they played regularly. It doesn't matter what age you are, if you likes ale, you'll like the Churchkeys. I believe they still play once in a while.
We aim to cobble up a dvd release ourselves once we've collected the small, but necessary monies. It will be available at our website and elsewheres (tbd). We've been collecting that money from auctions on ebay, and if there are any dollars from 7/16th's premiere party, after expenses, and the fantastic bands are paid, we'll have that much more towards it, too. Thanks for the interest.
I'll be aleing up watching them Pistons on the TV.

This Saturday!

Forward from the man in charge. Note the start time shift and the special guest info:

>> Countrymen:
>> please be advised that, due to uncontrollable forces, the world
>> premiére of Wayne County Ramblin', with performances following from
>> Lyres and Reigning Sound on Saturday, July the 16th has been bumped
>> up from starting @ 8:00 PM, to 9:00 PM. This is so, even though our
>> flyers, handbills, & e-posters say 8:00, and many of the listings say
>> 10:00. 9:00 is the starting time for the 2 hour movie, should you
>> care to see it. Immediately thereafter, The Haunted Hearts will be
>> performing as 'special guest', a handful of songs honoring the life
>> of Tony Fusco. A beloved friend, and character actor in the movie
>> who, most sadly, passed away in the wee days of 2005. Tony, who used
>> to work for Fortune Records, is responsible more than any one person
>> I can think of for turning on so many of us, far and wide, to the
>> treasure chest of long out of print, and hard to find music that
>> emanated from that fantastic record company in Detroit. He had a
>> great heart and was a blast to be around, and is missed by all who
>> knew him. The Haunted Hearts will be playing a handful of songs from
>> the hillbilly division at Fortune, Hi-Q Records in his honor. None
>> could do it better. The fantastic Reigning Sound plays after that.
>> And, as another 'special guest', Eddie Kirkland will join The
>> Reigning Sound, for what can only be described as an unbelievably
>> unique and great set, albeit short. Eddie played 2nd guitar on John
>> Lee Hooker's "I'm In The Mood" and recorded on many of John Lee
>> Hooker's hits starting in the late 1940's through the 1950's, and
>> made great records on his own for Fortune, Stax, King, LuPine, and
>> many other record companies. Eddie did some great original
>> soundtrack work for Wayne County Ramblin', as well. We're thrilled
>> he gonna join us. More information on his unbelievable bio can be
>> found at www.eddiekirkland.com Lyres will finish the evening as no
>> other could.

this is not a rumor, but as of late last night, the Crescent City is now in a full term pregnancy with the vanilla gorilla. The umbilical cord is already knotted about Lee Circle, and probably will be laden throughout the Circle Bar floor, like so many hot dogs linked together, for the (truly) Haunted Hearts this Friday evening. If the ever emanating chord hasn't been daunted by so many feet on it, or streetcar crossings, he will be waddling to One Eyed Jacks to behold Lyres on Saturday. The C. C. is heavy with...

Gay Fonzie is back in NOLA. She was trying to tell me last night that you were back in town (Matt) and she saw you biking down Decatur. I knew it was lies. Fucking Poison Idea ain't happening because they're too fat to sleep on Gary Mader's floor.

Is that true, Sam? I was looking forward to that show. My flight back from DotDash lands at 11:15 Monday night--so I was just gonna head straight from the airport to the show.

The 1st thing I thought of when I heard about that show was HOW IN THE FUCK are those dudes gonna fit in Dixie. The 2nd thing I thought of was that it's been 18 years since Verbal Abuse played Nola--I'm fucking old.
