NO CONDITION IS PERMANENT [Episode #251 ~ 12-19-20]

Pictured: William ‘Bootsy’ Collins.

“LSD was a big part of why I left James Brown’s band,” Collins admits. “I promised myself I’d never do it during a show, but we had a father-son relationship, and he pestered me so much not to do it that one day I just did. My bass turned into a snake and I can’t even remember playing. After, he called me in the back room, as he always did, and was explaining how terrible I was – even when I wasn’t taking LSD. I laughed so hard I was on the floor. To him, that was very disrespectful. He had his bodyguard throw me out.”

— Bootsy Collins, interviewed by The Guardian (2017).

Were you really, really in need of shelter from the plague (no, not that one) that is Xmas music, all you had to do was step inside the Purple Bat Lounge last Saturday evening. Holiday? What holiday? Within the bar’s stygian confines all was as it should have beeen on the dark end of Brush Street: DJ’s Reeshard & Lee-Roy spun some three dozen storming tunes, Uncle Morty stopped by and a very promising Blaxploitation double feature beckoned at The Madison Theater. Yes, our preferred dive was safe from seasonal so-called cheer, but not without effort:  Local carolers turned up at the alleyway entrance, only to be scared off by local pimp Lotsa Poppa, brandishing an extra-large Lee-Roy Cocktail™.
