DNA Clothing, Italy

This was my last custom order.

The completely revamped DNA website is up and running. Claudio never disappoints with his superb selection of shirts, trousers, suits, jackets and more. I currently have 13 shirts from DNA and can't wait to get more.

St. Helena, CA

Took it up to the new park in St. Helena yesterday. In the heart of the Napa Valley wine country where the yuppie reigns supreme there's a sick new park. Bring your helmet and pads if you're going because the St. Helena cops like to give out $100 tickets if you're not wearing them. I guess St. Helena just created a new revenue stream. Grindline killed it, this place is even smoother than Potrero. This park is like having a little slice of the Northwest in the Bay Area. The bowls are fun, especially the Amoeba, but there are a ton of obstacles to hit around the bowls. 20 people can be skating at same time without much of a crash up derby factor. We stayed all day, grilled, stole beers from a company picnic, etc. Dig if you will the picture(s)...

The Sorrows "Verde, Rosso, Giallo y Blu" 1967

Mega-mega rare only pressed in Italy THE SORROWS "Verde Rosso Giallo e Blu" b/w "No No No No" 45 single. Coventry, UK Maximum R&B gods had a following in Italy so they re-recorded a few of their tunes in Italian. This was after Don Fardon left the group to go solo and guitarist Pip took over vocal duties. Get the record here.

Seldom seen appearance by The Sorrows in the Italian film "I Ragazzi di Bandiera Gialla" doing ""Verde, Rosso, Giallo e Blu"

Small Faces "All Or Nothing" live 1966

Small Faces week? Sure, why not? I've been too busy to get out the ol' Nikon lately. Live on the Morecambe and Wise show, UK. It's hard to believe that this was just an album track originally and not even considered for a single.

Small Faces "Song Of A Baker" French TV 1968

Uber-rare color footage which is possibly their last TV appearance. This first aried on 12/31/69. The group split the following month. This is the only color footage I've ever seen of them besides the "Colour Me Pop" special they taped. Bonus: Check out Keith Moon and Pete Townshend rocking out behind Kenny's drum kit 0:15-:019.
