Because of the storm it took 4 days to get out of Mumbai, India. After 8 hrs at the airport, only 42 hrs to get from Mumbai to Cleveland, and still not back in NYC yet. ARC is safe and dry, but no power. Fred is there now doing a job for Muscle Shoals by flashlight! We should be up and running on Monday. Thanks to all the great folks in India who helped me out. A big Halloween ‘boo’ to United Airlines who didn’t man their counter for three days in Mumbai and slashed, broke the handles + lock and stole a telephone from my bag on their flight between Houston and Cleveland.

My ‘Minute of Mayhem’ honoring punk impresario Malcolm McLaren (who I was not a fan of, but, geeze, he did do something) is the 45 rpm 12” Booji Boy version of “(I cån’t gèt mé nö) Satisfaction” by Devo (BOY 1, 1977). Malcolm was buried today, and the family suggested a fitting alternative to a minute of silence.
Boogie Boy was the boy’s own label outa CLE, Ohio. It’s a sheer joy homemade mix, sticker pasted on a generic sleeve, with an opening that is way red, back when there were VU meters that needed to be adjusted. No really, red as in the speakers are about to pop, what real pop is all about. You can get the later, limited Warner Brothers and Stiff versions, professionally mixed by Eno – my favorite producer makes it palatable, but it’s no plate breaker. So get loud for just a minute or so today. My Earth Day is seismic.
