The UFO archivists dug deep into the cauldron of unreleased live UFO shows and came up with another gem- “Regenerator- Live 1982”- which came out on November 06, 2001.  The concert captured here comes from a show at the famed Hammersmith Odeon Theater in London recorded on January 28, 1982.  The lineup features Phil Mogg (vocals), Andy Parker (drums), Paul Chapman (guitars), Pete Way (bass), and Neil Carter (keyboards/rhythm guitar/saxophones) and man was the band on fire tonight!  Having seen the band in the United States in the 1970s and the 1980s, we can attest to what a stunning live act they were and this archival release is one deserving of being in everyone’s home who is a fan of hardcore but artistic rock and roll.  Seek it out and enjoy as you most definitely will love it.  Thank you!

Our personal identity and security are now very important so I, like everyone else at the American Institute of Culinary Politics-Elemental News of the Day has had local Bakersfield, California, up-and-coming street artist, Simone, create some portraits of me. The problem is in this hyper age of partisanship and the far left going bonkers, we have had to cut back on how much of ourselves we share with the readership. Sad to say, it sucks especially for someone such as me who lives in a small community and owns a business. I have been in professional foodservice for a long, long time and have known Stinkbug for an equally long time. My name is pronounced KRONK-L-MYER but everyone calls me "The Krink."
