Suzi Quatro, "Can The Can" (1973)- pre-punk music from the gal Joan Jett stole most of her act from. it would be impossible to overstate how in love with Suzi i was at age 13-14.


followed by another '73 classic, one of the best road-songs ever, "Radar Love", by Golden Earring:


Most likely some Slade to follow, but i won't keep DJ-ing y'all like that. yeah it was, "Mama Were All Crazee Now"

But i can't resist two more songs you kids never heard, that you might dig, the best song i know about getting out of jail "Diversion", by the Equals (the song "Police On My Back" that you think is by the Clash was an Equals cover):


and the best song i know about running from the cops, in a version sung by a 9 year old "Quick Joey Small" (originally by The 1910 Fruitgum Company, i think) by Darren Burn:


Hope some of you kids enjoy this stuff, this would be the soundtrack to my "Hitchhiking, & shoplifting" thread about being a 70s nomad dirtbag.

Ok, since at least someone dug those, two more pre-punk early '70s songs, , "Ascension Day" and "Preaching Violence", both by UK communist skinhead band Third World War, who almost were Iggy's backing band for his post-Stooges comeback records My brother, a pretty serious musician, can't stand the first song bc he says the guitar makes him physically ill.

This shit is PAF before "punk rock" as such was invented yet. Enjoy.

I hate my fucking back. A combination of bank bullshit and now a strained or sprained back had kept me held up in Pennsylvania. Have a place to stay, but I'm pissed at life trying to keep me off the road!

I'mma cut to the chase: You don't call me what I consider to be a slur or insult, and I won't call you names.
You say I should love myself and have more self-confidence. You've got it all wrong. I love myself plenty, and I know for a fact that I am capable of doing incredible things, both good and evil.
You say fake it till you make it. I'm too honest for that. Instead I will have faith in myself, and act accordingly.
These new rules for the train riding forum are ridiculous. I've been on here for 5 ish years.

I read your story last month about working in Alaska. I got a job in Naknek this summer. Definitely can get how it felt like jail. I fear it's really going to feel that way with this virus. We can't go into town. I'm not very happy about that since it will limit my exploring. Yet I really need the opportunity right now. Anymore advice is much appreciated.
Anyone been to Thailand or know anything about Thailand? Going in September and have absolutely no plans yet, open to suggestions!
