the equivalent of rauncy music you'd rather your kids not hear

There is a little essay of mine in the current issue of SPIN about my memories of this Clash show.

And there is a Q & A in the latest Harp.

(Neither of those are on line, unless my methods for determining whether things are on line or not have gone awry.)

Here's a sweet review of King Dork in Las Vegas Citylife, by Tod Goldberg.

Finally, this just might end up being my favorite Amazon reader review of King Dork. (It's currently at the top of the reviews page. At first I thought it might be someone pulling my leg, but after reading the other reviews, I'd say it's at least mostly for real. Or is it?)

UPDATE: I just noticed that Betty Burks's bizarro review of King Dork has been removed. There's still plenty of ultra-weirdness in her 1000 + other reviews on her Amazon profile page, if you like that kind of thing.

Always good to start the day with a schizophrenic racist diatribe! And she apparently ran the PTA, too...

Well, at least Betty Burks says that King Dork has a future as a "broadway musical." Score!

OT, but still relevant to a Dr. Frank blog = RIP Syd Barrett:
