The past couple times i yakked with you on the phone , you were asking me about that mississippi punk book project...i was thinking,why not just write the goddam thing yourself? Center the book around LOD,and your own story.It would be a hell of a better read than some dry trainspotter discography list aimed at KBD collectors...it seems like there's enough diy/desktop indie publishing outfits that would go for it...why not give it a whirl?

I'd love to do it,but i wanna find this guy first!It was his idea to do it in the first place,so he might as well get first crack at that.
Also,there's folks i don't get along with that would need to be in the book to get the full picture of how it was,and i don't think i could do it 'cuz i don't think they'd work w/ me,at least not with out money...

I'd love to collaborate and help someone as much as i can to get it done! I have almost all the names and numbers for old Coast punx that were around before me,and if some one wanted to do the dirty work of helping me track folks down i'd do it!

So how about it Bateman? i volunteer YOU!

I've thought about doing a book about the regional music scene down there for a while,actually!I wanted to do a companion piece book tying whatever early Rock n'Roll from the area together w/ what's been happeneing w/ the punk scene for a complete set of what happened down there!

I figured there's enough material (pictures,records,etc.) still around to make a decent book about the Rockabilly and Garage Band eras on the Gulf Coast,so i might as well do it,right? (i'm sure the Garage book would be pretty Louisiana-centric,as most of the unearthed bands seem to be from Lafayette or NO)The biggest hurdle would be finding songs of these bands that you know were out there but didn't quite get it together enough to put out a record but still made acetates or reel-to-reel demos...

Talot's dad was in a miss. rockabilly band called THE KATS;he still has the newspaper clipping about them from around '56, refering to them as a "rock'n'roll orchestra".
I still think you should do a book about the LOD story,from your own perspective...fuck that 'objectivity' shit!! Shit, write it and xerox it yourself, if you have to!!It would be a great read!

Hey Barry,
Did I ever play you that record by the Sugar Cube Blues Band? My uncle was in that band, also based out of North Mississippi, but about 10 years after The Kats (obviously, given the title of the band). My uncle quit once they got psychedelic though and quit covering "Devil With a Blue Dress." The record is good though. Recorded in Memphis with Jim Dickinson around 1967. Paulie gave a re-issue of the record to me as a gift, which was very cool.

...yeah, i remember you playing that record at mimi's, til she started yelling about 'that hippie crap'(that girl makes me look like a deadhead...)
My uncle mel played drums for a nola garage band called THE LAST RITES...no records, unfortunately.

Yeah, the only song by Love that I could play for her was "Little Red Book."
"Forever Changes" was totally off limits.

ANY Last Rites recordings at all (live,etc.)?

funny you should mention 'foreverchanges'...once, we were listening to wtul, and they were playin' a track off it, and she lost it:"how can you listen to this hippie crap?...it sounds like Queen!!" once, we were in a video store, and i wanted to rent PSYCH-OUT, and she refused to watch it;i kept sayin'"...but it has THE SEEDS in it!!"
yeah, the last rites ever recorded; mel only played with them for a summer...they had a crucifix painted on the drumhead,'til my grandparents saw it and blew a gasket....take that, SURFIN JESUS!!!
