The whole point of the > song's lyric is to say that they can't find their drummer Jughead, > yet drums still can be heard. Yes, I realize that he does finally > show up before the song's end, yet there is drumming heard > THROUGHOUT the song. I am confused. I was at a "Comics Nostalgia" convention a few years ago, and I got a chance to talk to Nancy, during a break she took from signing autographs. Someone mentioned "Archie" and she said it wasn't well known, but Sluggo had done that drumming during Jughead's absence - it had to be kept hush-hush then, because Sluggo was supposed to be at a clinic, "drying out" at the time.

Message: 2 Date: Sat, 30 Oct 2004 14:38:33 EDT From: John Berg Subject: Touring Raiders Gem, Thanks for the remembrances about your '75 gig alongside Paul Revere and his band. Just don't confuse that bunch of "Raiders" with the musicians who played with Revere in the '60s -- a totally different set of musos. The guys who played on the '60s stuff were long gone by that time. JB -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 3 Date: Sat, 30 Oct 2004 21:21:14 -0400 From: Phil X Milstein Subject: Re: more on Peel & Shaw A few words for those wishing further information on John Peel and Greg Shaw: * Peel features prominently in Mike Stax's biography of The Misunderstood, spanning issues 20, 21 and the forthcoming 22 of Ugly Things magazine. Peel was a DJ in San Bernadino during the group's formative years in the "Inland Empire" area of Southern California. Still using his (almost) original name of Ravencroft, Peel and the band met, and hit it off both musically and personally. According to the article, much of the group's repertoire was formed from their regular perusals through his extensive record collection, and he, in turn, was instrumental in their getting themselves to England, where they would finally make their mark. Their move overseas, in fact, leads to a whole sequence of stories of (now) comical mishaps, some of them involving members of Peel's family ... such was the level of his devotion to their career. Beyond the Peel references, Stax's series on The Misunderstood is a triumph of pop music journalism, and I fully expect some enterprising publisher to compile its segments into a full-length book one day. * The other night I attended a new documentary film titled "Dig!," about the current pop groups The Dandy Warhols and The Brian Jonestown Massacre and their strangely intertwined histories. As the latter group released a number of records on one of Shaw's labels or another, he makes several appearances in the movie, in which he vainly attempts to help guide the career of a musician -- BJM leader Anton Newcombe -- who seems incapable of guiding himself. I enjoyed the movie a lot, and found myself liking The Dandy Warhols both personally and musically, but never could see what all the fuss was over the Brian Jonestown group. Yeah, --Phil M. -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

Music Director: Alan Caddy. Producer: Claire Francis. Is this another of your autobiographical songs, Claire? About you-know-who, I guess? As yet, I've still had no luck in turning up a copy of his album. Gimme time. How well do you remember Richard Hill and Alan Caddy? Hey la, Mick Patrick -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------

So it'll take some days until I find the time to do this. I'll let you know when I'm done. Frank J.
