NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #245 ~ 10-24-20]

Pictured: Jeff Beck (l.) & Keith Relf of the Yardbirds, from Blow-Up (1966, dir. M. Antonioni).

According to rock legend, the Who’s stage act was inspired by a lecture Townshend attended by Gustav Metzger, during which the auto-destructive Dadaist smashed a double bass. According to Townshend it was an accident that became a spectacle. While playing a gig at the Railway Tavern in Harrow & Wealdstone in September 1964, he cracked his guitar against the ceiling while ‘getting into feedback’, and when the audience started laughing he hid his embarrassment by pretending to have meant it and proceeding to destroy the guitar. The next day the place was packed.

In the run-up to Halloween (the only holiday endorsed by NCIP) this past Saturday, The Madison Theatre is running a fabulous, ever-so-creepy Barbara Steele double feature. DJ Lee-Roy still spends most of a given Saturday evening on the Outdoor Patio™, located adjacent to the back door of the Purple Bat Lounge, watching Lotsa Poppa throw exotic insects at the carriage-lamp-model bug zapper. Within the bar, 4 impeccably crafted sets of music designed to be played at lease-breaking volume are stitched together by Lee-Roy & (mostly) co-host Reeshard. A great time is had by all concerned. A recorded transcription of said time is now available — just down there a few pixels — for those of you at home who desire the Purple Bat experience, but don’t want to get anything on your outfit. Go ahead, click…see what happens…
