Ho Folks Friends and fiddlers Everywhere
Mr Mike will be setting out to see you in the NE; lookout for Mr. Mike in NYC, N'ampton, E.Fairfield VT, Montreal, Toronto. Not neccesarily in that order. The program will present new opus; Se Fue en la Noche---watch for it---and another scarfomaniac piece; Cook Fish, Bake Pie---he is dead serious, of course & you might find it funny. Then the poignant Whiskey Beer & Wine for your alcoholic referencing, some new covers, reformed of course, a long new memoir on a 1961 trip to New Orleans you may or may not hear on a given night as the serenade most likely runs over 9 minutes & sets often have to be a bit condensed to include more songs. But sometimes they are more or less openended, still we don't wish to streach out as much as we yish to deliver the sampler as it is known. The set attendees have sometimes journeyed many a mile & they basically need to catch upon this and that, as it were. For as it were; catch up on the popular favorites the bard penned in the past like The Slurf Song, O My Stars, In the Garden & Wildegeeses & a host of others, unrecorded monster mashes like Puttin' Sugar, Cars, Jars & Guitars. Autographs doodled at the merch table. Obvious cameras-in-the face often make him fxxk up a songs so don't be doing that & don't be scowling & looking so studious & puzzled Remember; he didn't spit in your hat and has no plans to rob you & he is nice as a little white mouse & used to cordiality. He's sweet as a little alligator in the forest. When his battery needs charged he may not lay a lot of jive on you and that's basically when he's at that gig you're at. Out in Browntown there isn't anything to do but plunk that old guitar of his & drive around in those old bombers from the 60's & the 70's. He is looking for an exhaust manifold; drivers's side, that goes on a Dodge Coronet wagon, 1973, with a 318 engine. Also needs an interior rear view mirror as the one in that vehicle is blackening for some reason. Age, of course. You may wonder what the '68 Impala 4 door needs. It doesn't need much except interior re-apolestering of the seats. Plenty of torque, but she's drinking a bunch of oil when provoked. But you got to say what you got today. Traveling over England & the Isle of Man; met up with his old minder, one of the best in the business; Emily. He was sitting in the airport for a long time after they delalyed the flight like 4 hours. American Airlines is a fleet of junkers. But it all come out in the wash. Hope ta C ya.
