Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

We Are the Night Family

Been a while since we drew some tea with WSB. Remedy provided.

So, I make the shooting gallery 4:00 p.m. and spot Skipper B., an old “Deadliner”...I know him from light-years back, a shabby inferential presence at the Dream Machine in the penny arcade and he hiccups:

“Quiet the roses...”

We make it down to the waterfront, where the old Yacht Club used to be, and this Time vigilante jumps out on us:

“Are you a Member?”

Without changing his expression, the Skipper took a small handgun from his side pocket and shot him:

“Wretched idiot inhabitants...running, do you see, after me...”

Dusty sunlight...dingy cabin...it was a typical “Klinker”, as such tramp spacecraft are called...the Skipper brings out a lead bottle of “Heavy Blue” and pours two lead cups...we “blue” out. He looks at me and says:

“Tick ahead of the Geigers, eh mate?”

I tell him I am carrying maps and lay out a BG---Brion Gysin---on the table. He checks the BG against his MOA---map of the area---and nods:

“Seems all right...What’s it to be then?”

“First, we pick up friends in Frisco...”

“You chaps don’t want much for a map, do you now?”

“Well, look at your own situation...stranded here...no crew...no maps...”

“Shall we have the other half?” he pours another round of “Heavy Blue” and we make a deal.
