The Underground Sound with Meri St. Mary: April 13 2014: Keith Levene of PiL: CZ2014

Date April 23, 2014

Listen in as Meri St. Mary talks with Keith Levene: founding member of The Clash & The Flowers of Romance (w/pre Sex Pistols Sid Vicious) but most notably for his legendary guitar work (& co founder) in the groundbreaking Public Image Limited AKA PiL with John Lydon, Jah Wobble & Martin Atkins. PiL put out 3 records together as well as live shows from 1978-1983 that inspired a whole generation & beyond. Keith’s humor & intelligence shine through in this phone interview from his hometown of London where he is surrounded by close family, artists, teachers, books & his studio while focusing predominately on the current crowd funding project on Indiegogo for what was to be PiL’s 4th album Commercial Zone 2014. He has some great stories about the final recording in NYC the “this is what you didn’t want, but what you got” fiasco, wonderful quotes with regards to “doing things that DON’T SUCK”, wisdom of this getting older business, the Veleno guitar guy story & as a self taught multi-instrumentalist (& true spirit of punk) the great line: “who cares – it’s metal, I’m getting it”. There are loads of cool perks to getting involved in The CZ2014 Campaign so check it out, get involved & have some fun with it as Keith prepares to deliver the purest vision w/original &  proper PiL ethos, an unfinished business that has to be done & he is the one to do it….not so much to set the record straight but to get the right record out 30 years later with as many years of composition. As Keith explains:  “PiL was my Purpose In Life, but at the end of the day, what else do you have but your principles?” So get on the Indiegogo tip & support The CZ2014 Campaign while you can….the clock is ticking & as soon as the campaign is done, Keith can get back to composing….....he’s a lucky guy & so are we to have him share his vision: music, art & words with us all……now go check out CZ2014 & get out of it what you put into it!!!!!

The Underground Sound with Meri St. Mary: March 9 2014: The Iconic PLEASANT GEHMAN

Date March 13, 2014

Listen in as Meri St. Mary chats with Pleasant Gehman a true Renaissance woman: writer, dancer, actor, musician & painter, for a fast paced FUN hour that begins in 70’s Hollywood electrical energy sub culture underground movement with many a true tale & adventures that she documented in diaries, the fanzine “Lobotomy” & the LA Weekly LA DE DAH (can’t wait for “All Tomata’s Parties” Screamers fanatics know what I mean). Who wouldn’t love a girl who hands out a matchbook with “aladdin sane cosmic orgasm call me” on it? I mean good girls go to heaven, but bad girls go EVERYWHERE & so does Ms. Gehman with enough wit, savvy & street smarts to get away with it. Ever heard of Danny Shades’ infamous girlfriend applications? (i got one) .Know what an emergency break thru was? Spray painted Sid Vicious RIP on a Heaven Can Wait billboard on Sunset Blvd? Took bolt cutters & snagged a 7 foot Devo album advert with 3 people on quaaludes then hauled it up 3 stories? Wondered how everyone magically lived, toured & came home on no money? In an all girl band in the 80’s (Screaming Sirens, Ringling SIsters & Honk if Yer Horny)? What Hollywood fancy dresser piano man named his kid after Pleasant? Well, get yer fill cuz this gal has survived & THRIVED. Love her Cinderella moment dancing at a club in Hollywood that led her to her current occupation as world traveling belly dancer since the 1990’s (she is wildly devoted)! Told as a child she was “flat footed” & based on a pix from a National Geographic of an exotic Istanbul she kicked an eating disorder & hopped a plane to Greece, added on Cairo & got a costume.She was part of the neo burlesque troupe VELVET HAMMER as well. The name Pleasant does not translate in Arabic thus the moniker Princess Farhana was born & we can all thank the stars for this. But in case you don’t believe in stars, then check out her latest book “SHOWGIRL CONFIDENTIAL My Life Onstage, Backstage And On The Road” from Punk Hostage Press or Steve Balderson’s documentary “UNDERBELLY” a year in the life of Princess Farhana: or for her spoken word the CD “RUINED” & the reason she can die happy (cuz starred w/Mink Stole) in the flick “STUCK”. Actually Pleasant is having many pinch me moments as she exudes the old style glamour of a Hollywood health & that means just plain working hard, doing what you love & inspiring many a young lady (or older one) to dance belly dance w/ her 2013 belly dance handbook. I’m gonna give you her contacts cuz there is loads more & a dual life has dual accounts! Yer gonna love her, I promise…..(& btw danny shades WAS VERY selective with his girlfriend applications!) SO GIT YER GRRL ON & ENJOY the PLEASANT-ries…….YEAH!

In this hour long chat you can hear true CRIME stories starting from the beginning with Johnny Strike & Frankie Fix (SF 1976), how to bake tapes, the notorious San Quentin gig where the band was decked out in prison guard garb, how Hank came to be in CRIME, their being the first West Coast punk band to put out a single (Hotwire My Heart/Baby You’re So Repulsive) & why the Weekly World News played a part in the CRIME experience. We also give mad props to members no longer with us: Frankie Fix, Brittley Black & Ricky Williams! It’s no accident as to the “why” Sonic Youth covered Hotwire My Heart (on Sister) & that CRIME was the loudest band around: finally here you can get all the known/found songs previously unavailable & we play a bunch of them. Both Johnny & Henry have been busy in years that have led up to now & you can hear about Henry’s flashmob jug band, movie producing, his kids, his car – all movers & shakers in San Francisco today BTW stay tuned for part 2 cuz we didn’t even get into his space travel.

The Underground Sound: 8/25/13: Poets Bill Gainer and Joe Hall

Date October 3, 2013


Tune in as Meri St. Mary talks with Poets Bill Gainer & Joe Hall, both of whom are very active in the poetry scene spanning the USA. The Poets in general are a very motivated bunch & there are readings virtually every night in a city/town near you. There are a plethora of chapbooks available at readings as well as published works available at fine bookstores that support independent & underground press as well as from the poets directly! Both Bill Gainer & Joe Hall read from their latest books: “The Fine Art Of Poisoning” & “The Devotional Poems” in this hour that goes by so fast you will want to listen again & again. Is it possible to delve into the mind of a poet or is it enough to hear their take on life that is original and uniquely their own perspective? Ponder on this & revel in their words poetically put. NOW, is the pen mightier than the sword? Well, that’s for you to decide!!!!
