Rockin' Rod here and no, I wasn't thinking of anybody from the Velvet Underground when I came up with my look. In fact, I model myself after Sky Saxon and Question Mark (Q to his friends). As a matter of fact, there's a chance that they had a three-way with Tina Turner(to get back at Ike, of course) and they both impregnated her and I am the result.
Anyway, January 30th, Tacoma was very lucky to see at the Java Jive, the Spanish Castle of Today, Thee Mighty Mighty Evaporators featuring our hero, Nardwaur the Human Serviette, the Prime Minister of Canadian Rock And Roll. It was a hell of a show, I tell ya's all.
That place was entirely meant for them and if you weren't there to witness his antics, then shame on you.
Of course there were the Java Jive regulars, Ronson Family Switchblade and yours truly Rockin' Rod with his band the Strychnines, who were told by the way, that after their set, the name is now appropriate (We played about 4 Sonics covers and 2 Sonic Soundalike songs). It was a fun time had by all.
Well, I gotta go back to listening to RIPPLE ROCK. Bye Bye. Doot Do Do Loot Do, DOOT DOOT.
