Rock & Roll Murder Mysteries [01 Nov 2007|01:29pm]

Patricia Kennealy Morrison, the woman who married Jim Morrison in a pagan ceremony, has a new book (she's written sci fi fantasy before) out--a rock n' roll murder mystery, set in the 1960's psychedelia Summer of Love period. The tunes! The clothes! The hair! The body count! It sounds like a lot of fun. She also has a live journal: pkmorrison. Here's the info about her book and how to order it.




The Rock & Roll Murders: The Rennie Stride Mysteries...by Patricia Morrison

Sex, drugs, rock&roll—and murder. A slightly different side of the Sixties.

She's a newspaper reporter whose beat is rock, not a detective, and her best-friend sidekick is a blond bisexual superstar chick singer, not a cop, but murder rocks their world, following them through the heart of the Sixties, from Haight-Ashbury to the Hollywood Hills, from the East Village to Abbey Road....

Seamlessly blending the fictional with the real: the stars, the bands, the music, all the excitement of the most incredible decade of the last century...

Full of rockworld dish and attitude, created by someone who was not only there for it but who made some of it happen herself, and who actually remembers it...

And with murder to sit in and jam.

It is a time when things are happening that have never happened before...when artists like Jerry Garcia and Janis Joplin and Mick Jagger are doing stuff onstage that people never dreamed of when listening to Perry Como...when rock is the hottest thing on the planet and the people who make it their life and love and work are the coolest people you could ever hope to meet.

The time when it was all NEW: the music, the hair, the clothes, the drugs, the sex, the politics, the revolution in society that stopped a war and changed the world.
A time often imitated, always envied by those not lucky enough to have been there for it, certainly never surpassed...and now with a body count!

Over the course of the series, which will run from 1964 to around 1972, smart, tough, pretty rock writer/social commentator/amateur crime-solver RENNIE STRIDE will move back and forth between
San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and London.

Everywhere she goes, it's the heart of rock and roll: classic scenes like Woodstock, Monterey Pop, the Fillmores East and West, the San Francisco ballrooms, the Greenwich Village rock and folk clubs, LA's Whisky A Go-Go and Troubadour, England's tiny blues dens and huge pop festivals.

As notorious for her affinity for and proximity to foul play—the "rock albatross", as she only half-jokingly calls herself, a murder magnet always around for, or connected to, a string of music-biz murders and counterculture crimes—as she is famous for her journalistic talent and style and personal dash, Rennie is not only a hip rockworld Miss Marple but the friend of dozens of other Sixties movers and shakers, real and fictional: musicians, painters, photographers, clothes designers, record company execs, other writers.
(And the lover of some of the rock deities who are making musical history.)

First up:

Ungrateful Dead: Murder at the Fillmore...

It's March 1966 in
San Francisco. Not quite yet the Summer of Love.
Instead, it's the Springtime of Murder. When up-and-coming rock singer Prax McKenna is busted for being at two murder scenes, one of which takes place at that temple of rock, the newly opened Fillmore Auditorium, her best friend, newspaper reporter Rennie Stride, resolves to find the real killer and spring Prax from the slammer. What nobody expects, least of all Rennie, is what happens next...

Patricia Morrison is a retired rock critic and editor, the author of The Keltiad science-fantasy series and "Strange Days: My Life With and Without Jim Morrison", and was married to rock star Jim Morrison.

Ungrateful Dead: Murder at the Fillmore is available NOW from lulu.com

CRUCIFIED FOR OUR SINS [23 Oct 2007|08:08pm]

On October 1st the Dead End Social Club began taking pre-orders for
their CRUCIFIED SKINHEAD scarf.  The profits from the scarf will
help pay for a summer 2008 music festival in Seattle Washington. 

TAKE IT BACK FEST plans on drawing on the oi, hardcore, and ska that we
loved in our youth to introduce a younger generation to how it was done
before MTV, Hot Topic, and major media got involved.  Many bands
will be playing their only show in 2008 at the Take It Back Fest, and
others are reuniting specifically for the show.  We do not want to
ruin it for everyone, but the bands will be in the vein of The
Templars, Patriot, Slapshot, etc.

The Dead End Social Club, and TAKE IT BACK is already generating
press.  Attached is a recent clip from MRR number 293.

The Dead End Social Club is only making 200 of these scarves, orders
are coming in very fast, they will most certainly sell out, and we will
not be making this scarf again.
get it while you can.

The pre-order ends Thanksgiving Weekend, or until our supply is
exhausted, shipping is planned on OR PRIOR TO Nov. 25.  As they
are selling fast, they may ship within the next two weeks.

You can order the TAKE IT BACK/CRUCIFIED SKINHEAD SCARF at the Dead End
Social Club webpage in the merch section: www.deadendsocialclub.com

The cost for the scarf is $30 DOLLARS SHIPPING INCLUDED within the USA,
shipping costs.

Description: Two sided jacquard scarf, red and black, DESC on one side,
TAKE IT BACK on the reverse. DESC logo and Crucified at each end. The
money made from the scarf (limited edition of 200) will go towards the
TAKE IT BACK FEST held in Seattle, WA in August of 2008.

Don't miss this rare opportunity to own this scarf. You'll regret

Yes, but is it MOD? [11 May 2007|11:54am]

I REALLY like Franz Ferdinand.  The band, not the Archduke.

Of course, maybe the Archduke was a cool guy to have over for tea and cakes -- not like I'll ever know.

I also seem to get a lot of slack for loving the Mod Revival era of music, and debatably more for pointing out that "Mod Revival" is not so much a genre as an umbrella term for late 1970's/early 1980's power-pop, British Ska, and "60's revival" girl-group sounds (especially Mari Wilson).

i love it all...

...but is it "MOD"?
