The Nerves Live At The The Cow Palace

Posted by PC on 3 May 2015 | 1 response

The Nerves were playing the Daryl Starbird Hot Rod Show at the Cow Palace in early 1976.

The place was huge, it was one of our first gigs, and we were anxious, even though nobody was paying any attention to us—they were all there for the cars. But Daryl Starbird himself gave the introduction to the crowd, in a loud, clear voice, over the PA, heard throughout the hall: “Ladies and Gentlemen, now, on our main stage, I’m proud to present, for your listening pleasure: THE NERDS!”

I just about fainted. The other guys were looking at me like they were going to jump my ass. “C’mon man!” hissed Jack, “didn’t you spell it for him?”

We always had to spell it. Maybe I forgot. Oh well. We went out and played a set, and no one listened. We put everything we had into it.

When we were done, Jack and Paul cornered me, and said: “You gotta go straighten him out on the name before we play the next set. Get goin’! And make sure you spell it for him!”
So I headed out, across the main floor, past all his beautiful award-winning custom hot rods, his famous bubble-topped” Predicta” “the Futurista,” and the “Cosmic Ray,” through the Cow Palace, to the lobby, up an elevator, through security, talking my way past officials from the show, finally—about—15 minutes later—arriving in a room at the top of the Cow Palace, a very private, exclusive, quiet, office type room, where two men were engaged in a deep conversation. One of them was Daryl Starbird, the famous custom car cult hero. I just stood there, a few feet away from them, until finally they stopped talking and Starbird turned to me” “What can I do for you?” he asked. He seemed kind of pissed that I’d interrupted him.

“Mr Starbird, when you introduced us on the main stage, you said we were ‘The Nerds.’ That’s not the name of the band. It’s The Nerves. N-E-R-V-E-S. Nerves. The Nerves.” I finished and just stood there looking at him. He looked at me. “N-E-R-V-E-S,” I repeated.

“Okay, Okay, I got it.” And he waved me out of the room.

I went back out and made the trek, 15 minutes, down the stairs and elevator, through the lobby, past the hot rods in the main hall, through the security to the backstage.

“Did’ja tell him?” asked Paul.

Yeah, man. So the Nerves hung out for an hour or more, whatever it was until our next show. It seemed like a long wait. We were cracking jokes, bitchin’ about how stupid everything was, making fun of it, smoking, and just generally doin’ our thing and killing time. After a while we tuned up, me and Jack arguing about the pitch for a spell, and then it was time for us to go on, finally. We were nervous, again, and there were a lot more people in the hall. It looked like might we actually have a good-sized audience for this one.

We stood by the side of the stage, waiting, and finally we hear Daryl Starbird’s voice very concise and clear over loudspeaker, introducing us to everyone in the arena: “Ladies and Gentlemen: I’m proud to present, for your rock ’n’roll listening pleasure, from San Francisco, three great guys, THE WORMS!”

Hothouse Madman

Posted by PC on 1 May 2015 | 4 responses

Dream–I’m cutting class from Hamburg High, skippin’ out on school, so I cross the street and go into a little record store on the corner and begin looking through the bin for singles. I come to one that really catches my eye. It’s in a very colorful sleeve and in wild type the cover reads ”Hothouse Madman” by the Sargents.

I want to hear the record, but John Lennon is a few feet away, going through records in another one of the bins, and when he sees me with the Sargents record, he flips out and comes over saying, “I don’t want you to listen to that record.”

I say “Well, I want to hear it.”

Lennon says “Don’t listen to that record!” and he tries to take it from me.

I resist, and then take it over to the counter and ask the clerk to play it through the store. He does and it’s incredible, an amazing, blaring, bright-red rock and roll song, and I love it!

Somewhere in the middle of his dream I realized this is a new song I’d never heard before, so I woke up, jumped out of bed, grabbed my guitar and a pen, and got the thing down. The chords to the song included some I’d never played before, and they sounded bluesy, jangling, propulsive. The chorus jumped up to a falsetto on “HOT-house Madman, hothouse madman.” I played a guitar solo in the middle of the arrangement, rockin’ on the low strings. It had a really fresh sound. I was there in the front room of the pad, making my girlfriend Kit listen over and over. She seemed to be going for it, and I was excited and kind of amazed at the nature of the song, and its dreamy inspiration. The music was simple, original, seamless, and rocked like crazy. The words were strange, but I felt like I understood them. They were about living off the land, on the street, an outlaw. It was part of my story: “In the dark I’m waiting, near the break of day, crouching in the bushes, when they come my way.” I played it for the guys in the band later in the day, after rehearsal over at Pat’s. I could tell they dug the tune, and the chords and groove were going over, but it freaked ‘em out. Hothouse madman? What’s that supposed to mean?

It was always a bitch to get songs into the Nerves repertoire. Jack would always try to tear em apart. He liked to edit everything down, and in the process he’d disemboweled your song if you weren’t careful. He’d be chopping the lyrics and melody up until he’d gone too far to find his way back. This was especially hard on story songs, and he even ruined some of his own. It almost worked sometimes, but he had songs where the first verse repeated three times with no change and that was it. So it was a gauntlet. My song “When You Find Out” was in. It was undeniable, I guess, a powerful melody and poignant lyrics over inventive chords hw couldn’t tear down. Jack worked that one over for hours, alone and obsessed, sitting there with his guitar at the end of the rehearsal room, ignoring me and Paul, trying to pry the chords apart, to prove that it was somehow put together wrong, but it was tight, and finally he gave up exhausted, and the band learned it.

On one of our road trips up the state I was trying to sell Jack on “Hothouse,” and he told me that if I rewrote the lyrics to “Hothouse,” we’d do it, and I said okay, great.

So I started trying to work on it again, getting nowhere—at first.

As soon as we got back to Hollywood, at the end of the tour, I went up into my fourth floor digs on Wilton Avenue and started in on the “Hothouse Madman” again. I set up to work on the kitchen table, with a portable typewriter, a bottle of beer, a stack of paper, some notebooks, and my guitar. Every night I’d take another crack at “Hothouse,” knocking off more lyrics to fit the melody. The hang-up was always the same: the chorus. Nothing seemed to work there, at least not as well as the original. Compared to “Hothouse Madman,” everything else felt weak, awkward, contrived. Each day as the sun went down I’d sit at the table and try again, there by the open window of summer, listening to the sound of my next-door neighbors The Screamers having one massive punk rock bash after another, but I was never really tempted to leave my post. I knew I was gonna break the code, if I kept writing.

I wrote and wrote, banging away, and never seemed to get any closer. After a while, I started writing other songs that occurred to me, just to break the boredom. “Hothouse” was dead stuck, but “One Way Ticket” just poured out. “Everyday Things” I wrote on a break from the serious task at hand. I made up nonsense songs, limericks, rock ’n roll story songs, and blues. I was finally getting my writing together without even realizing it. The act of constantly trying to tailor words in rhythm to the melody of “Hothouse” was so difficult as to be impossible, but it was great catalyst. After going through that for a few months I felt I could write anything.

Anything that is, except a new lyric to “Hothouse Madman.”

In the dark I’m waiting
for the break of day
crouching in the bushes
when they come my way

soon the rose sweet fragrance
tangles with my blood
I wake up when the sprinklers
cover me with mud

theres a vagrant in the garden
they say he means no one no good
I think I’d better watch out for the
Hothouse Madman
Hothouse Madman.

A new sound

Posted by PC on 1 May 2015 | No responses

The Nerves first rehearsal was a gas, more like a party. It was in a borrowed apartment that belonged to a friend of Jack’s girlfriend Connie, somewhere west of the theater district on Sutter Street. Pat Rush, the speed freak, was there to blow harp, and Sitka Pat, the street musician that frequently played out in front of the Swiss-American Hotel, would play lead guitar. It turned out he had grown up with Jack in Alaska, though they’d come to SF separately. He had an unusual expression for what he approved of: “That’s jam-up!”

An older black man named Koko was sittin’ in. He was a street singer too, and always played a harmonica taped to the broom handle neck of a washtub bass that he thumped on in crazy rockin’ jump-time. Koko was a big drinker, had lost all his teeth, and sounded a bit like Rice Miller, aka Sonny Boy Williamson II. I think Pat Rush invited him. Sitka Pat invited Pat Rush. Jack invited me, though, and along with the other guests, it wasn’t clear what the roles were supposed to be. I didn’t have an electric guitar or amp, just my Yamaki Deluxe. Jack wanted me there, so I went, ’cause I was curious, drawn. This band thing was fascinating in its possibilities. I pulled my guitar out and rocked along in another dimension, even though no one much could hear the sound over the electrics.

Jack and Sitka Pat got their arrangement of “Hanging On The Telephone” down, while Pat Rush vibrated, twitched, commented through his high velocity mustache, and every so often even blew some licks on the harp, generally irritating Jack. Koko, the bluesman rocked and drank wine, his speech getting more and more unintelligible to the rest of us, until after a while no one could understand a word he said, except Pat Rush, who held a great lively running conversation with him in the corner.

The next session was a few weeks later, across the bay in Oakland, in a black residential neighborhood. We met in the garage behind the house of the drummer of Bobby Freeman’s Condor Club band. He was great on the drums, and Jack wanted him on the “Hangin’ On the Telephone” demo.

We were all smoked up to the moon. Jack was on bass, Sitka Pat played loud electric lead through the Matthews amp. Pat Rush was nowhere to be seen, I guess he and Koko hadn’t made the cut. I banged on acoustic guitar percussion and percussion, but as the day went on I felt progressively farther from the action, which was intense and everything, but I wasn’t digging it.

Jack sat in a straight-back chair facing the drummer, shouting at him, and getting red in the face, trying to get this guy who was used to playing jazz, 50’s R&B and strip house show band grooves, to play a fast and driving straight eighth note groove, without fills or anything fancy. Every time the guy started to give it more of his feel it, Jack yelled over the electric blare “yeah…yeah…YEAH! …N)!” On and on. Jack turned red and the whole thing kept going.

It was an assault: a loud, driving, catchy song, but also intense and screaming. Nothing I’d heard had ever sounded like this.

This was the first blast of new music that would be coming from everywhere in a few years. It was like being present at a birth. I knew it was historic, but I had my own thing goin’ on. I got restless and went outside, and while I waited for a ride back to the city with Pat and Jack, I played my new song “When You Find Out” on my guitar, to pass the time.

“Don’t leave me hangin’ on the telephone” & the origin of the Nerves

Posted by PC on 1 May 2015 | No responses

I was on my usual midnight spot, in front of the Swiss American Hotel, strumming and singing the 13th Floor Elevators hit. “You’re Gonna Miss Me.”

He was leaning against the no parking sign, lighting up a Chesterfield, watching me. He had short hair, looked he’d just got out of jail–or the army. Whatever it was, he didn’t really fit in with the scruffy Broadway outlaw scene all around us. Blue jeans, white deck sneakers, and a blue/green wooly sweater. He looked kind of straight.

The next evening I saw him go walking by across the street with his arm around a good looking, long haired chick, and they headed up a few doors to the Condor Club. She was wearing a full length winter coat like the Condor dancers favored, and after she pushed through the curtains and disappeared into the club, the he ambled back, and listened to me play some more.

On a break, I bummed a cigarette, and started talking to him. He loved Roky Erikson’s wild harp on the end of “Miss Me.” I was surprised he knew Roky’s name; nobody else seemed to. He said his name was Jack Lee. He was a songwriter, came from Alaska, and dug the music I was doing. He wanted to put a band together.

I was interested in hearing his rap, but needed to make some dough that night. I went back, picked up my guitar and started playing a Lazy Lester song called “I’ve Got A Secret Weapon,” singing loud over the traffic, and making a couple bucks of change off the passing tourists and nightcrawlers. Jack hung around, then approached me again on the next break.

“How much, on the average, do you make out here a night?” he asked. I lied and said “Fifty bucks.” He lied and said, “I’ll pay you double that if you join my band,” and that was the beginning of the Nerves.

He invited me up the street with him, to share a joint.

I packed up my Yamaki Deluxe and we headed up Broadway past the strip clubs, to Stockton Street. We took a right and walked another half block, up to where a white Ford Country Squire wagon was parked on the curb. He unlocked it, we got in, he lit up, and we smoked.

We were sitting there watching the traffic go by. I hadn’t eaten all day, so I was already a bit light headed. Maybe that’s the reason the light, the sky, the pigeons, even the hair sprouting out of my head, all seemed very chaotic. My new friend here was intense, and pretty weird.

“How you gonna make it?” he asked me.

It was like I was standing knee deep in water at the bottom of a well, and Jack had leaned over and yelled down to me from the top.

“Huh? What do you mean, make it? I am making it.” I slowly answered.

“No, how are you going to make it in music, man? You know, make records, get famous. Play concerts around the world? You know what I mean: How are you going to make it?”

I’d never thought of it like that before; it had never even occurred to me as a serious subject. I was playing music for a living already, wasn’t I? I mean, vaguely, as something that could happen in the distant future, had I considered a big career in rock and roll? Maybe. Derek and I had talked about it, but had gotten nowhere. Johnny was running from the law, so he wasn’t interested. I had kinda figured I wanted to be like my heroes, a nomadic blues singer, or some kind of wandering troubadour

I had nothing to say for myself.

Jack asked if he could borrow the guitar so I got it out and passed it to him, and he started to sing, sitting right there in the car, all cramped behind the steering wheel, turning my way. The song was a loud fast one that he’d written himself, and his face turned crimson as he sang: “Don’t leave me hangin’ on the telephone! Don’t leave me hangin’ on the telephone!”

Impressive. He played another one and turned an even brighter shade of red. This one was “I’m a new man living in wide world! I’m a new man, living in a wide world.” It had a driving beat and a great melody. I got caught on the hook. This one was for me. A wide world that was my dream. Starting a new life, a million miles away from my past. Yes…

I told him I’d think about it.

He split, and I walked the streets of North Beach, thinking “Man, I had better get busy.”

Lost In Space

Posted by PC on 30 April 2015 | 3 responses

Yes, the old blog over here seems lost, in digital space. Its like an abandoned lot in a teeming city, surrounded by high tech business, sports clubs, parking lots. I’ve left it too long, maybe. Oh well, I was a fool to let all the traffic ski from here over to Facebook, where they own it and control it, and no one really has too much to say.

Here on the blog I’m using the space to develop come things I’m writing. Maybe some of the entries ramble, or are long winded, but if you look down inside, you mighty find something of interest. Who knows whats of interest to people anymore?. There’s a songwriting chapbook in 5 long entries. Its pretty electric, as we used to say… made of leaps instead of dead connections.

I’m gonna be writing here more, its part of my process for coming up with the books…

Early Songwriting

Posted by PC on 29 April 2015 | No responses

I knew I was going to be a musician from about the time I turned fourteen. I was on the path before that but hadn’t allowed myself to really think about it much. It was the Summer of ’68 that forced the issue for me. I started getting in discussions about it with my Dad, who was dead set against. He put me down one day, when he came home from work early, and walked in, surprising me. I was sitting at the piano practicing in the empty house, and wearing a corduroy sport coat that I’d probably gone to school in. He came up and looked at me, shook his head and walked away, snorting is a disgusted tone of voice, “Look at you! Little Lord Fauntlleroy!” He was obviously very bugged, and let down by my behavior and appearance.

It hurt me, and that’s no lie, but at the time I had no reason to expect support at home from my Dad, since we were at odds all the time, over most everything.

One night he really had his dander up, and launched into an emotional appeal against the life I’d get sucked into if I became a musician.

“You’ll be up all night, drinking in smoky bars with loose women…”

That pretty much cemented it for me.

I taught myself how to play the harmonica. One day I was sitting on the front steps playing when a gang of kids walked by, people I knew by sight but had never spoken with, but wanted to. It was Hamburg’s outlaw hippie contingent, a few years older than me, Duffett and Bannister with long hair, fringe jackets, cowboy boots, cigarettes, Duffett sort of walking the way he did, reminding me of Groucho Marx, with a couple of very pretty and far out looking teenage hippie girls, Theresa and Sally, with long hair and flowers, walking with them, and they were all laughing and talking. They stopped as they passed and listened to me blowing some train whistle blues on the harp, and were impressed I guess, ‘cause just a few weeks later I was accepted into the group, and they became pretty much my friends for life.

Duffett and I started writing songs together, just for kicks, and quickly had a repertoire of original songs we’d play for anyone who had a minute or two. “Monopoly Board Blues’ “Talkin’ Christ-like Blues” “What Do You Do When Your Time Runs Out?” and some others. Laughs. We wrote the songs in the bathroom of Bannister and Duffett’s tiny garage apartment on Pleasant Avenue. We worked in there since the parties going on in the rest of the pad were too distracting for us to get any songwriting done. We’d come out with a song though, and have a built in audience to try it out on.

On Woodstock weekend, 1969, we put together this number for Bannister, who had run off to the festival, which was three hundred some miles away, on a moments notice.
It was called the Ballad Of Michael, was sort of country / bluegrass styled and went like this:

he went that way in a truck
and he didn’t give a fuck
if he got to Woodstock or not
he’s going to make the scene
where the cops are mean
and I hope that he doesn’t get shot

here he comes!
there he goes
here he comes!
there he goes

he got caught swimming nude
the cops thought it was kind of crude
so they canned him for a week or two
he was sittin’ in his cell
in his own private hell
when he was rescued by the A.C.L.U

here he comes!
there he goes
here he comes!
there he goes

he’s been in Hamburg lately
livin’ kind of stately
trying to bum a buck or two
you can see him late at night
its really quite a sight
just him and the curator
of the Syracuse Zoo

here he comes!
there he goes
here he comes!
there he goes

The zoo curator was Bert, one of Bannister’s pals. You can really tell this is an early song because of the way we shoehorned that line in there, even though it sounded kind of awkward. But obviously, we knew how to put lines together a little bit, and it was good for entertaining the gang.

I finagled a key to the little, grey, Unitarian Church, there in the village, and the people in charge were very nice, and said it was alright if I wanted to come in when no one was there and play the piano up on the Sacristy, the main stage of the church. It was great place to work, dead quiet, lit by the daylight through the stained glass window up above in the back of the church. I started spending a lot of time, and making up songs there. I wrote a few, then one day came up with some music, and the lyric was exactly like this:

smiling salutations from a soldier boy
dressed in blue denim and corduroy
they don’t care what you say
if you talk fast
he’ll listen anyway
he’s just hanging on
just hanging on
just hanging on

since I was born I’ve been fightin’ time
I see the time passing and it eases my mind
that’s not the way I should feel
watching the clock
makes it all unreal
I’m just hanging on
just hanging on

everyone around me is at their ends
running’ from their enemies and crying to their friends
it’s got me thinking of
why I’m so lonely
and calling it love
I’m just hanging on
just hanging on
I’m just hanging on
just hanging on.

The music was right, a gospel cadence rolling frown from F in the key of C, with a bridge that used a Bb and made a very natural feeling time change. then the chorus.
I played and played it in the empty church.

This became the most popular of the songs at that point. People asked to hear it, everybody around our scene knew it, talked about the words. Some older, college graduate type people liked it too, so it felt like my first musical success in a way. It was really fun to write it and play, even tho’ it expressed desperation and sadness.

Part 3 a shoeshine & some lucky strikes (off the cuff on songwriting and the Nerves)

Posted by PC on 28 April 2015 | No responses

Memory can be freshened, it just requires some focused attention, out of the brightness, in a quiet place, where your movements are free, for example, in an empty apartment in a slow part of the city. Then, with care, the colors can brighten, the feelings and desires return, the hunger, it all comes back, the need, the closeness of our own mind and heart.

New songs, with the power to take everybody away with them. Rock and roll? Jumps? Blues? Ballads? But new? A synthesis? In the world of samples? High powered dance and costume entertainment? And the news is supposedly on everyones phone.

Who’s got anything to say? The lightest, softest of comment is what abides on the netwaves.

The key is memory, access to your own heart.

It was the songs that Jack had written before the Nerves that did it for me. They cut through the stale air of the early seventies like a hot knife. They were fresh, intense, melodic, and spoke to what it was like to be loose on your own, young and making your way in a big city, like we were in San Francisco. Loneliness, abandonment, desire. Tales told quickly, with atmosphere, attitude, and energy. I was moved by just a few of Jack’s songs, and the ones I liked the best never even made it to the stage. House On Fire, Tired Of Yourself, I’m Still Mad, Day In & Day Out. Between Two People. The only one of my favorites that got recorded was Come Back and Stay.

Songs can be charismatic, can make you feel like somethings going to happen, or at least CAN happen. My songs were deeper moodier or more detailed, funnier. But they weren’t necessarily more charismatic. Though maybe that’s the kind of thing someone like me could or would never be able to judge about their own work. And everybody has a different opinion!

But it was the start of something fresh, new, positive. The idea was to play in stadiums. We weren’t really trying to junk the music business. We wanted to take it over! We were working on a minimal style, that, in our vision, could be amplified to sound huge! Guitar bass and drums, the simplest arrangements, but rocking and set large with overtones. That was my part of the trip, awareness of the overtones, of what could be brought out of basic, primitive arrangements. And I brought a different kind of lyrics to the group.

I’d just spent a couple years playing very stripped down rock and roll on the streets, and clubs in sf, and that became part of the Nerves vision. Jack and I spoke about a movement coming up from the sidewalks in SF, playing for kids on school lunch hours. Shades of the Beatles at the Cavern. No one had ever made it as a street band. Right off the streets of the city and into everyones living rooms! And the songs lent themselves perfectly, were easily played, and were in a range that projected well outdoors.

I was inspired by all of this in a big way. It seemed very possible, if we worked hard, that we could make it to the top…what a dream.

Like Cyril Jordan admitted about his band the Flamin’ Groovies, in the same city, at the same time, and unbeknownst to us, trying to accomplish much the same things, “we underestimated how big the world really was.”

And on the radio they’re talking about the fires in Sandtown. Riots in Baltimore. (The police aren’t getting the message, the deaths have to stop.) (“If you drive through, it’s a bleak picture, abandoned and vacant buildings, boarded up nothingness, a community in distress.”)

Lost in the present, twisted by pressure from the top. Economic pressure. And the threat of violence. Hup hup. Stay in line. They got you here in the middle of the tunnel, down in the Western mine. Will they cut off your oxygen? Kill the lights? Down here in the mine shaft, where the company guards are armed with guns, poison spray, truncheons. If you complain too loudly or forcefully you’ll feel your position. And If I was a kid coming into this after college? With a debt I’d be paying off for the rest of my life? Forced to get down to EARNING asap to pay down debt, or be hit by credit damage. Nobody wants bad credit, do they? “cause then you might find yourself someday in a position like I’m in, trickles of money coming in, precarious employment, not enough opportunity, working 24-7 at a gig that don’t pay but means everything, while the means of support are sucked dry by internet theft disguising as commerce.

I’m starting another band. In San Francisco. To play rock and roll in club residencies. Tuesday night type things. Songs of the Nerves, Plimsouls, solo stuff, great covers…I’m gonna want to write for it. But who am I talking to? I have so many ideas about what I want to do. It reminds of when I was a little kid, hanging with my friends during Summer vacation. We’d spend a week or two on baseball, then ghet on a kick of going into the woods, pretending civil war battles. Then an abrupt switch to “hell driving” tricks on our bikes, imitations of the stunt drivers at the county fair. One thing to the next…its like that with music. First I want to make the ultimate solo record, new material, recorded in a theater, big sounding, maybe live…then I’m turned on by jazz, Monk, Mingus, want to do a record of loopy jazz riffs under poetry. Then its “ The Piano Songs” lp…so many little waves to ride. Every so often I want a band. Well, now I’m doing it. But its easy to get spread out too thin, with books and songs and teaching and solo and bands and everything that has to happen to. It’s my life story.

The answer is to synthesize. Combine. Mutate. Make hybrids. Forget the clean demarcations again, just figure out what yr singing, get it across any way that falls into your hands. Don’t try to be too smart, ok?

Part 2 Not a cowboy, just one of the hot & dusty Nerves

Posted by PC on 28 April 2015 | 2 responses

Most songs I write don’t work. They crack up somewhere between conception and execution. When I write ‘em I’m excited at first, by a good lyric idea, a turn of phrase that seems to have some good spin on it, or with a melody line and rhythm underneath that promises to lift the while thing off in a compelling way. They’re all good ideas when you start, capable of making the pulse beat quicker, the heart leap and the mind soar. And somewhere between the beginning rush and the completed tune, the booster rocket explodes, as the words tangle, the ideas hit a bare patch, the chords get tangled in the lines, and it all dries up. Interest expires.

Usually at that point its time for a break, time to go on to a new day and hopefully another idea, a truer, more soulfully deep idea, one which is so moving that it writes itself through the songwriter’s danger zone and into the repertoire. The ones that go all the way are the songs you’’re still singing in a few years, that continue to hold your interest as a singer, and the imaginations of the audience.

They’re so much fun to write. It feels very satisfying to write one of these songs.

When I was playing in the Nerves and the Plimsouls, songs seemed to come as lightning bolts, and only at completely uncontrollable intervals. There was nothing I could do to hurry a good one along. No amount of wishful thinking or encouraging or disparaging self-talk would make any difference.

My big sister Sue had moved into an apartment on Stadium Way in Berkeley, where she lived alone, and when I came back from the disastrous trip to Portland that fall I was feeling very ‘wheezy’, and I went and took her offer of shelter. She had a spare room she was planning to rent out, and she was cool if I stayed there a little while, when she went on a trip out of town with a friend.

I was really rattling around there in her flat, which had a view across Berkeley to the Bay, way over there in the distance. She had a record player and some new records, but I wasn’t really excited by the Souther-Hillman-Furay Band, nor the Who’s Quadrophenia…I stayed in my little room most of the time and played the red Rickenbacker guitar I’d come into on the trip, working out riffs, and melodies, fooling with chord progressions, and snatches of things I knew. The winter before, when I was living in a North Beach residence hotel, I’d learned Beatle songs out of a songbook, it was a big part of my musical education digging the wild but beautiful chord progressions that the Beatles wrote. And I’d been playing six to eight hours a day on the street for about eighteen months, through all kinds of situations.

So the run of an empty house, plus a guitar I was digging, an intense and adventurous life style, and daily non-stop pursuit of musical knowledge on the most basic levels led me to a moment…and there was a huge emotional event going on in my life, one that overwhelmed me and that I could hardly admit. Therese had gone back to KC to have her baby, I was the father, and I had no idea how to get in touch with her. The whole thing blew my mind so heavily, I couldn’t even consider it without getting dizzy, and so down I couldn’t move.

I decided to sit cross-legged on the floor, with my guitar, looking out the window at the lights of the city spread out over the distance. The light was dim inside. I started playing a chord profession I’d never tried before, in A minor, and the words and melody began to come: “this is the last time I’m gonna try—I still want you but I’ll say goodbye—you say you’re waiting for just the right one—you’ll try to find me when he lets you down—when you find out—I was the one—when you find out I was the one—“

It all just fell out. The chords were unusual, the mood was sad but determined—the second verse came in a flash and I knew then it needed a middle eight…I’d never made up one of those before. Leading with the F chord, the song transitioned for a moment to an A major chord. I don’t know how I figured that out. I did fool with it for a few minutes before I got it right. “Oh—when you find out—it’s gonna be pretty hard on you—I’ll be gone—when you find out—I hope there’s still something you can do.” I sang it a few times and couldn’t believe it. I taped it on a cassette so I wouldn’t forget it, and that was the first real song I wrote in California. The first one at all in a few years. It told my lonesome tale, a lot better than I could. And it was my ticket into the Nerves. The Nerves were my ticket into the Plimsouls, and the Plimsouls were the path that led to my solo career. So it all kind of comes down to this one. It was my first record, too, and the first one that got played on the radio. Three years later, late one night in a Denny’s restaurant in the middle of Texas, Dee Dee Ramone told me it was his favorite song…When You Find Out means a lot to me. I still play it at my shows.

Getting On A Roll (an ongoing inconclusive essay.)

Posted by PC on 27 April 2015 | 2 responses

It pays to be there there with the quality, in quantity, when it is desired. That’s in all business, and it goes for songwriting too. For all practical purposes, life doesn’t last forever, but I’ve been working like it does, slowly, barely crawling, a little of this, a piece here and there. But it won’t do.

I’ve let myself and a lot of people down with this, is my feeling, but what can be done. That’s all that matters now.

Late ambition is on my mind, fueling me to make one more grand attempt. It’s that desire that drives me, of making something worthwhile, that really connects above and below, the rabbit out of some hat, something that could surprise and amaze people, starting even with me. I know its possible, under the most favorable conditions. But all of these ideas are in the light of what seem like severely limited returns on my efforts, now, as I’ve tripped 61. Man, I’m old! Still, I want to reach out to people with songs, the way I sometimes can, that is, transcendently, I’ve done it before, may I do it again.

Songwriting always has taken a supreme effort for me, if I’m doing it right. Lately the instances of the real thing seem rare enough. Several songs on my new one? I don’t know, I may be confusing the production and the writing, but I want to go past this.

Sometimes its seems as if the key is doing less, but doing it in a pure way. What do I mean by this?

“Dimensionalize”—Dylan talks about that, as a stage he didn’t get to on Time Out Of Mind, because of the time pressures etc of recording. I can relate. And I feel I know what dimensionalizing is, but what is it exactly? Its making sure the song has the components in it to move deeply. That the song is really up to the task of mirroring and representing life. In even a small way. Long Good Time, one of three I wrote on hearing of my mother’s death in Oregon, while I was in Maryland, that’s one. And Pelican Bay, based on a story I heard about prisons….after those two the struggle began. Those are best, and they came the quickest. And maybe with the most pain.

It was a big effort on that record, and maybe I didn’t begin soon enough. I got to stay on the work.

I wish I could emulate the qualities of my concert performances—I get a strong response, now, most of the time and nearly everywhere. I wake up on stage and I’m there with the audience, it’s almost like being one on one. And is there something about the whole package, the greetings and a few opening words, the size of the sound in the theater or club, the visual maybe, of someone hunched over the guitar, in a certain way, singing their heart? I don’t know. And the songs, of which I always have my pick of the best ones I’ve written, as well as songs I love to sing, by others. Its all reaching out to the crowd.

I’m not bragging, and I don’t want to. I have no outsized idea of my own value. But like Steve Earle said to me once “I know where the bodies are buried.” I’ve been around some great work going down by others, and its awesome, beyond control, and leaves everyone in its presence exalted and humbled in one stroke. I’m trying now to take stock of things in a realistic and honest way. And I have my vulnerabilities, as well as my strengths, like most everybody else.

I’m afraid my new record doesn’t have enough of that reaching-out quality, and what it does have, is hidden a bit.I’m working on it.

Vivid memories are the key to songwriting. Empathy, colorful clear emotional vision. The voice reaching out. “The tongue is an eye,” said that brilliant old freak Stevens.
He knew the beautiful surface, and the resonant depths.

The key. The key. The key. Death is the key. Love is the key. Memory. Paying attention.
Work is the key. Hard work. “You think too much because there’s work you don’t want to do,” said Andy Warhol (to Lou Reed.)

The heroism isn’t in the topical material, it’s in the Truth. Like Garance, (a mystical and central character in the great film Children Of Paradise) looking in the mirror.

Finding a patron says Townshend. That’s what his art school training taught him. The class or group that support your work. With my combination of Blues and Poetry and Rock and Roll, a tricky blend to describe, but it most always gets them live.

It’s always the marriage of the idea with a strong feeling.This is what gives the song legs, the dynamic that enables you to continue to sing it for years and immerse yourself in it with every performance.

My first song was in 1965. I must’ve just begun on the guitar. the Beatles were high on all the charts with I Feel Fine. I’d been a fan since their first Ed Sullivan Show appearance in 1964, and dropped my study of the saxophone at the first opportunity. I’d begged for a guitar, and finally my dad bought me and my sister each a Gibson at the music store on Buffalo Street, as gifts for our April birthdays. I learned a few chords, was off. I teamed up with the only kid at school with anything close to the satisfactory Liverpudlian accent. He was George Pope, and his family had just arrived from Australia. They lived in the Knights Of Colombus clubhouse, where his dad was the caretaker. It was a big old spooky wood frame building with several bars inside, as well as meeting rooms, all empty during the days. We found a quiet space there in one of the rooms, and composed a song for our band, “Stay Away (I’m No Good For You)” which was basically that idea with a few rhyming variations repeated on a C to a minor change. It was very basic rock and roll, and almost a doowop number, primitive. The lyrics were cribbed, and were directed at a girl I had a mad crush on in school, Cheryl Graber. I had grasped early the allure the “bad boy’ had for the good catholic girls, and this was my play on that. Alas, it didn’t really help me get across to Cheryl. Or anyone else!

We called a radio station in Buffalo. the 50,000 watt WKBW, telling the guy who answered the phone we were ready to go on the radio now. He said “call back in ten years,” and hung up.

And I started writing songs, and a little after that, some poetry for Marrianne, a girl who transferred into my school during eighth grade.

Big ideas, beautiful words, inspiring aphorisms, and advice from the gods. Prayers, candles, and tarot cards; notebooks for every pocket in my clothes. Adventures. Sheaves of typewritten pages, and oodles of computer files with particular names, “I Didn’t Build This World, But I Sure Can Tear It Down,” “Mister Highway Man,” “Fresh Numbers,” and “Canciones Grandes.” Gambles, commitments. Films watched in the early morning hours. Novels, of all types. Histories of Indigenous Tribes. My own advice for others could figure in here, but rarely did. Write twenty-five titles. Do ten minutes of timed deep-dive sense based writing based on objects, any objects. Description sketches in books with marbled covers. Pen and ink sketches in drawing pads. Free association writing projects (these never amount to anything,) letters, magazine and anthology articles requested for certain projects, and abandoned novel attempts, I’ve tried them all, trying to get on a roll.

It’s very possible none of it gets you closer to the next real song. You have to be song writing to write one. I forget that sometimes. And its like the chapter in Moby Dick, where Melville is discussing the size of the whales brain in relation just to its huge body, and he says the answer isn’t in size, its in subtlety, in being able to feel and make distinctions.

Next: Not a cowboy, but dusty as anyone on the globe.

Tour Dates Archive (for the time being)(and a note about the site)

Posted by PC on 9 April 2015 | No responses

I’m having a very difficult time with the site now, as it seems its no longer supported by the software etc…which means that changes have become very difficult. It looks like we are close to the end of this particular site.

A new one is being put together asap. No more out-dated entries, etc…!

Until then, anyone wishing to view my touring history since the middle of 2010 can look here:
