Pete & The Chandells Live At The Linda

Live At The Linda!
“You wanna hear how loud I usually play?”
So he turns up, and his amplifier makes a horrid buzz.
“My cord’s fucked up. I have another one in the green room.
Why don’t you all just chant ‘Pete Pete Pete Pete’ until I get back.”
We all start chanting ‘Pete Pete Pete’. Meanwhile, he tells me later,
he’s back there shotgunning Colt 45 tall boys and gets so tanked,
he stumbles into the ‘handicapped only’ restroom and pisses on
some wiring, which kills the lights and everyone starts like earnestly making out?
Andy, up in the recording room, rectifies the short, the lights come back on,
and Pete stumbles back on stage (without the cord) and announces his
first song (something, he says, he’s never “you know when you sing something
in front of other people?”) called ‘Guest Of Honor’,
So ensues the pompous horrid buzz which sounds like his rig
checked into a crack house and it’s heart literally exploded.

    Remember when he sang “Where The Heck’s Me X-Ray Specs”?
    No pompous buzz O.K.? Fuckin genus!

    I couldn’t write in right away because as they say, I had a lot on my plate all month. But that show at The Linda was one of the last times I was able to get out, hear some music, and check out who was naughty or nice before the shit hit the fan.
    Mr. Bogo, excuse me, I don’t know what was going on around your seat when the lights went out, but from where I was sitting there were some screams and a couple gun shots, then everyone was yelling. Then there was that unfortunate Borden woman with the arrow through her head. It was definitely NOT, as you say, everybody making out.
    Anyway I was relieved to hear that at the emergency O.R. they found it to be a novelty clamp-on arrow from backstage and she had merely fallen asleep.
    As for this joker Thruway Ray, What the heck kind of planet did he fall off of? True some people were yelling for “Where The Heck’s Me X-Ray Specs” But HE DID NOT PLAY IT! Is that some kind of new age French philosophy where not doing is doing? He may be a “genus”, but he’s not Isosceles! You french philosophers make me spit! Ptui!
