Did you know the Doug Hewitt labels "Piece" and "Feasible" (Daze of the Week, Grotesque Mommies) are considered "song poem" labels?!?!?!? The flip side of the Daze of the Week 45 was written by an old lady!?!? I have the Lenny Joint and the Roaches 45. Another "song poem".

I have my turntables disconnected right now (hence my reliance on Mr. Ed Music Round Up to listen to records), when I get it set up again I'll make an Mp3 of Lenny Joint and the Roaches. I seem to remember it didn't live up to the band name. It might be pretty kick ass though after all this time!!!

This is a double A side. Damn you think the library scanners suck take a look at mine!! Shoot dude!!

I do not have the Daze of the Week "B" side. I think it should be listened to though.

the b side to the daze of the week is a song poem that some old lady sent in . apparently they did it as a joke with a kazoo &all. the way that mark described it was funnier than shit

Yes I was going to the Mall to get some new shoes. When I was in there I saw a kid who had pants made with the "Vans" checkerboard pattern. He was getting lot's of chicks!!!

Here's a new abbreviated link to Lenny Joint:

I wonder if this is Mark Harkness and band? Next time you run into him you should ask about this. I've had this for a long time and didn't even realize it came out of Tacoma!! I guess Pat O'Day wasn't into the Grotesque Mommies because they used a lawn mower and drill as part of their act!! Damn!!! These guys sound like THEE original northwest punks. What a bunch of smart-asses!! Taking some old lady's song and butchering it up and sending it back to her and probably charging money to do it!! Brilliant.

You and Steve McQueen have fun!!
