ANOTHER BIRTHDAY BOY MARIO ESCOVEDO

Happy Birthday Mario Escovedo of Requiemme Management, shown here this year at South by Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas with his artists THE DOGS. (Yes, THAT Escovedo family (Alejandro, Cokey, Sheila E. et al.) This also was such beautiful natural light coming through the club's window that afternoon...

BIRTHDAY BOY NIGHT TRIPPER

Happy Birthday Mac Rebennack A.K.A. Dr. John. The below live track video confirms my better half Mr. Twister's assessment that the strangest act he photographed in that "golden age of rock" circa 1970 was the Dr. John the Night Tripper revue, recounting weird spacey girls in feathers swaying along with shaman-dressed Dr. John ignoring every tenet of then popular entertainment in rock concert halls. Superb!! Long may he rock!

WELCOME, GIA !

 

 Welcome to our world Bereton Tanager Gia, young 13-week-old Scottish Deerhound puppy shown with Mr. Twister and Sarahbelle the Golden Retriever. Below, Gia learns the ropes (one on the right is the dreaded phonepic but I couldn't resist.)
 

In the interests of truth, r.e. the t-shirt sported by Mr. Twister, the Hobart Hawks are now the Hobart Huskies. Below, an important lesson: how to lie on the leather couch.

RARE POSTER of ENGLISH BOY MODEL AGENCY via MR. TWISTER


I just wrote a snippet to accompany a (better) copy of this ENGLISH BOY Model Agency poster for Harvey Kubernik and his own future thinkpiece on the late onetime Rolling Stone Brian Jones. Witness some pretty astonishingly primo 1960s' British personages thereupon. My better half Mr. Twister was on the other English Boy headshot poster (stolen by a past GF) as he was part of this crowd via his friends who knew the cast of Donald Cammell's film Performance with James Fox, Mick Jagger and Anita Pallenberg. English Boy was based in London's trendiest districts, 1966 through 1969.

Below, Mr. Twister, left, caprisoned in Mod finery at the time of his mid-1960s English Boy recruitment, right is Ida Random. Guest photographer: famous entertainment photographer Andee Nathanson. Every day was dress-up day in the mid-1960s, although these came from Ida's collection...


On the poster, you'll espy such '60s Brit icons like Fox himself (upper left,) Marijke Koger and then husband Simon from The Fool (center,) Brian Jones (to their lower left,) Chrissie Shrimpton (right, in hat,) Suki Potier (to her left,) Sir Mark Palmer (center) who owned the agency, and so on...

 Below for the evolutionary record, Mr. Twister as full-fledged rockstar in 1970 when we first met, guest photographer, probably James Oswald.

Below, an amusing yet informative 3-minute video spotlights the scene with cool authentic footage after Austin Powers frugs and shingalings his way across our memories...
