Time for Gallucci to head down south to see the sights....... Still one of my favourite flyers too. The Prahran Skatepark gig became plenty memorable when an almost fist-fight with a bunch of irate residents from the nearby apartments broke out mid-set. Quick on his feet, Clint from SFK asked one of them for a light...... Don't touch our Jenni!

Saved By Curb! In 2004, Curb Your Enthusiasm was credited with helping clear a Los Angeles man, Juan Catalan of first-degree murder. Catalan maintained his innocence, saying he was at a Los Angeles Dodgers baseball game on May 12, 2003, at the time of the slaying. Coincidentally, during the Dodgers vs. Braves game an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm was being shot, and outtake footage was found showing Juan Catalan with his daughter at Dodger Stadium. Larry David later commented in a New Yorker article, "I tell people that I've now done one decent thing in my life. Albeit inadvertently. To quote Larry "If you ever need a blowjob at a reasonable price.......... this is your girl!

This post is to commemorate one of the most excellent moments of the Jenni-Tour, with a visit to Bondi Beach Skatepark for a midnight gig, Nov 23/24th 2006. A confused but appreciative crowd soon gathered as loud sounds were made by Gallucci, unfortunately this led to the police paying a visit, with one officer obliging for the customary yanking of the power cable from the jenni (why didn't we just hard-wire that thing?). During this period G'cci played a number of skateparks; Marulan, Bondi, Prahran, Maroubra, Fernside/Waterloo, Lumeah, Moorebank, St Ives..... I think a few more too.

Here Ye, Here Ye! This Electronic Notification is to draw your attention to the fact that today, October 7, 2006 marks the release of the new Gallucci album entitled "You-Wrecker" 21 performances by the above mentioned... "You-Wrecker" and it's 21 extra lengthy songs, comes with some sweet hand-sown packaging that will surely fall apart after one listen. Download it here.

Obviously getting a little too confident at the time, Gallucci organised two totally disastrous screenings of 'The Year Punk Broke' in Byron Bay & Goulburn. In both cases, we played to one (likely unsatisfied) person. Let the good times roll in the year that punk almost broke us! Only upside was Andy Cowland (from Further) on bass guitar for one gig....

An excerpt from Cave-Clan magazine (Il Draino) #2;
"Melbourne Water can only enforce the by-law if there is an 'entry prohib' sign which kids mostly snag for their bedroom door. We rang Melbourne's 'Dob in a Drainer' hotline to get a recorded message about calling back in office hours. Entering service or steam tunnels can be risky but just leave the place, including entrance and exit as found. Potentially, the worst trouble we have gotten into was back in the 80's when the fed police came to the door with a telephone book sized file on us, asking for the fake name our was in. We told them the guy moved to Perth. They asked 'was he into dungeons and dragons?"

Here is the first (and likely only) issue of our zine 'Electriac', a kind of pre-cursor to this windbag website. Click above if you want to dig deeper, bring your torch!

At 5'7" Spud Webb was one of the shortest players to ever lace up in the NBA. With 12 seasons from 1985-98, the zinger of his career was winning the '86 NBA Slam Dunk Contest by defeating defending champion & Atlanta Hawks teammate Dominique Wilkins who dunked it out with Jordan in '85. Apparently he'd never seen Spud dunk, and Webb told him he hadn't prepared anything or practiced.... He apparently first dunked a 10ft ring when standing just 4'11'.

What the hell is the 'Everlasting Jenni-Tour'? Well, it's No Stages, All Ages, Playing Anywhere, No Soundchecks, and of course the Generator (Jenni) giving us 'light'. Everlasting refers to Gallucci's refusal to roll over and just bloody die. Good times and Bad times all at once - DYI (that's 'Do-Yourself-In') at it's best.........

Gallucci is getting the insane honour of playing with Mike Watt while he is here in Sydney on the Big Day Out tour. He's here with the Stooges, and we'll be playing a set from their first two albums. I don't know what else to say...... Practice!
