Hi, sorry I've been overworked a lot and under the weather a little lately, so I was hoping someone else might describe the party. I know you're out there -- give us a report. It was noisy and smoky and crowded. Here's a list of some people I know were there:

Richard Kern
Gary Indiana
Leee Black Childers
with his boys the Star Spangles
Nick Zedd
Christopher Wool
Mim Udovitch
Ron Padgett
George Schneeman
John Holmstrom
Eileen Myles
Ivan Julian
Amanda Uprichard
Gerard Cosloy
Mike DeCapite
Ruby Hell
Roberta Bayley
Jutta Koether
Sara Driver
Mette Madsen
Alan Licht
Bob Bert

...As I remember or am reminded I'll add more. I wasn't there very long and wouldn't know about most of the nightlife and press people.

I do have a copy of the Hell-made party mix that was the soundtrack supremo for the evening:

Short Fat Fanny/Larry Williams
Annie's Aunt Fanny/Hank Ballard
Night Train/James Brown
Stop Breaking Down/White Stripes
Train Kept a Rollin/Johnny Burnette Trio
Slow Down/Eddie Cochran
Run Home to Your Mama/Evie Sands
Can't Judge a Book/Bo Diddley
Run Chicken Run/Link Wray
High Heel Sneakers/Rolling Stones
I'm Gonna Tear Yr Playhouse Down/Ann Peebles
That's the Way I Feel.../Bobby Womack
Boogie in the Dark/Jimmy Reed
Star Spangled Banner, Wite Lite Wite Ht/Velvets
Man Called Aerodynamic/Guided by Voices

I Need Somebody/? and the Mysterions

Blank Generation/Whiskeytown

Rocket 88/Jackie Brenston
Let's Play House/Elvis Presley
Wave of Mutilation/Pixies
Who Loves the Sun/Velvets
Go Now/Bessie Banks
Somewhere Over the Rainbow/Keith Richards

Also, it's true what they're saying that Richard's signed on the dots for Matador to bring out in the spring a two CD set made of one expanded R.I.P. disk and one disk of unreleased live sets from 1977-78.

I've been too otherwise occupied to get up the news at Updates but I'll do it before the weekend's over. He also has a new essay called "Writing Sex" that serves as the introduction to an anthology of erotic writing called Aroused edited by Karen Finley just out from Thunder's Mouth Press.

That's it for now. Someone else write about the party please.
