Not In the no the runaways. Where he highly influential seventies rock band comprising of all females It's where musicians jet and Lita Ford got their start. They paved the way for other females. Like the go-goes l. Seven whole so many other girl groups basically basically are like the slits and every punk rock Female bands that you can think of was probably influenced by the runaway. Yeah despite the fact that they were pretty much put together like a girl bands. Yeah they were Joan. Jett and Ken Morris or something. I didn't really care too much more his name. 'cause that dude is gross. Also stay tuned for next week. Wing nudge nine. Little little little people will taste. Small tasters pasties Cherry. Bomb is one of the first hit singles for these ladies coming in hat with an aggressive riff and growling vocals. That stopped listeners in their tracks. This was something people really hadn't heard yet. Also like not in the mainstream anyway so they were sexy teenagers so problematic. Yeah that's one of them. Like legit many may not realize it. This tune is being sung by sixteen year. Old Cherry Currie whose looks and voice may seem beyond her age but also play to that jail. Bait looked to garner attention from the rock loving masses. Yup because that was exactly what they wanted. They wanted this chick wearing a core set singing. I'm your Cherry bomb. Yeah if anything The runways I guess you could say we're really exploited. Oh we are. That's probably playing down a bit and even in their later adult years. It's interesting to see how. A lot of them very opposed. Oh handle what had happened. Oh yes I'm sorry. It was Kim. Fowley was their manager. Runaways manager him. Fowley wanted to shock. The World With this group of underage girls with the devil may care attitude and music to Piss your parents off with Song. Cherry bombs were in with this in mind but probably never would have happened if cherry picked Sherri Sherri I keep calling her chariots Sherri Sherri but. It's spelled Terry. And that's why I keep fucking up. Also we're talking about Jerry. Yeah excuse me. It's Sherry Curry. But this probably never would've happened if Sherry picked a different song to addition with because she cayman with Suzy quals version of fever. But the band didn't know how to play it so instead which thought this was a weird decision. They decided to take some time to write up an original song instead. Okay but all right. It ended up working because they ended up with the song. A Cherry bomb is usually known as a small explosive. That kids used to play with. But in this context it's meant to represent a girl who's looking caused a lot of trouble getting her parents all angry with promiscuous bad behavior. She'll your cherry bomb. Yeah she's so bad. She wears short skirts in courses ads but also she is sixteen like you guys. She was definitely very underage quite underage. The A lot of their story comes from arguably problematic place and Kim. Fowley is definitely not a good guy. In this situation there are accusations of rape and sexual abuse towards the women in this. Sorry at the time teenage girls in this group. God He's like almost even worse Lou Pearlman. You know I am coming this nation. Drink this much before the because I really liked the song and I'm kind of making myself not like saw the connotation our brain a little bit but okay if you were removed this song. Take the song everything I just said. Put it in a box. Put It on the shelf. Takes Shit store sell it just put together so it's all together so it's all together and get rid of it? But a woman in her mid thirties. If I hear this song and I don't know the background to it. I just think like yeah. I'm a fucking bad on when I was heavily buzzed at a bar. I'd be like yeah fuck in this song. Yeah like I'm hot. I'm here to cause a fuck and raucous. I don't care what you fucking cherry bomb. So here's the thing if you have like a woman of consenting age singing the Song Great. I think this is wonderful. You're twenty one or whatever and singing the Song Karaoke Ni- eighteen and older go for it. Yeah but like if you're under eighteen like I really need you to know the story about the runaway. 'cause it's got some issues. Sorry now I went into a meeting runaways. Mostly just got really angry but like that's the thing to being a woman is just like it's really easy to just like hairpin trigger us is easy and it's also kind of infuriating the kind of stories you get behind all of these really Girl Power Song. Yeah I will say though bringing it back to some girl power. Joan Jett did help Kim write the song and she even stated that. This is the first song that she wrote. That wasn't for herself. She wrote it for Sherry overall. Forget everything I just said it. Endure the circus. It is a good song all my degrees song drive to put your and as long as your age appropriate age appropriate you can listen to. Do you WANNA go onto the next one.

He was not well behaved. Okay. So maybe better because he was drugged. Uh-huh. And I'm not proud of that. More than the Tigers. So he was very lazy, and would just lie around.

Now when you play there. Yeah. So in those days, the simmers access to the artists all these young kids like, don't be like Joan Jett. Like all of these, you know, we knew those they were young. I fell in. Love with miss stayed there in Hollywood and became my home and so that run. So you said, Joan Jett so like when the runaways were starting up, you must have encountered them a lot and Kim Fowley very much. So and rub it loved him. You know, and there's a lot of photos with him wearing runaway shirts and promoting them with me standing next to that night. That's when we fell another German jet was that, you know, specifically Joan Jen, and I love Cherie Korean leader, and they've all done wonderful stuff. Yeah. But Joan was, you know, she's the one that really started the engine of the runaways, really the rock and roll heart. The whole, she's Rokuro world to me and the documentary scrape from Kevin Kozlik bad rape. Schwantz. Schwantz that recently, just terrific. It's test. He did a great job.

"You're in cellphone, Richard. Your cell phone is too noisy. Much better. I disagree with you. Because I think if you watch to me the analysis since the mullahs report was released, including Chris Wallace from FOX, by the way, they have done their job. They have been very critical and very precise in their analysis. I think they've been a good job. It's improving. It really is finally improving. It wants to the weight of it is so much a lousy job, you know, anymore because getting out that. He's here. Everybody in the media saying what's that about you know, they might as well Marcia? And that's the we have to finish the press will cover this. You know early. Yeah. They've gotten better. I mean, part of the problem if we go back a couple of years is they would. Repeat his live to be giving as ration-. Now. What they do. They say that's not true that's alive. What he would. He his people go on the air telling lives, and then they're challenging which a good. Finally, finally, right? Yes. But that enough I mean, even not even though I mean, just. Too much credence to found says what you want, Richard. What what outlet you're watching? Is the mouthpiece for Donald Trump and his administration right AT for us? I hear it on the regular stations. It's always made me crazy. I know that I'm like those fitting in the window. You know? Know. The main point is that I really don't. We don't wanna have that. They have a are like thing where it's all four did or done that that has to be it has to be sensitive to be undertaken thinking that's not even with regard to the Senate. I mean, the preponderance of evidence, whereas they go through this, and they see unredacted record that might be enough that point to get that out of the people, and then I would do it. But I don't even the peanut gallery should be. Because I just don't think I have the political polling and a whole lot of other perspective that the leadership of the democrat parking. Well, let me ask you this before. Let me ask you what quick with you is he going. No, they don't make it through. I okay. Are you clearly political on this are it is there a moral responsibility. For us to impeach him. Because if we don't impeach him. Then he said presidents that two precedents can get Kim Fowley presently, our EC D E N T what we've been doing that since Reagan force one Bush two and this cloud. So I I don't know, you know. This is more grievous in any of the others. I wouldn't say I would say that Iran, founder all of the pardoning of of of people have put George senior in jail is pretty pretty unethical illegal. But, but I I think that the highest morals are nice, but you know, winning is more important to get this point. We can be headed our with our morals. Yeah. And it's these people again, if you are you facts with Trump bites if their opinions are based on sex, you are talking eight different language in dude ever gonna win. So I think the best thing to do is. I don't know. It's not giving too much credence early. So you know, that's old. Yeah. I don't know. Thanks, richard. Thank you, sir. See this is the dilemma we have is do do we take the high ground and impeach him. Although we could lose elected if they're the active, although I don't buy into that. You know, how everybody seems to be afraid of if we beat him that it's going to flame everybody, we're going to lose the when Clinton was impeached, although Clinton became more popular, the Republicans got the house and the Senate through that. He's out of that. So it's not it's not as scary as. Out something to you too. Yeah. Impeachment doesn't depend on criminal activity. No. I know I know the the slaying. I mean, the the term they use high crimes and misdemeanors misdemeanors. Right. And they always leave out bribery bribery. The middle us don't have to have you don't have to have criminal activities right to. I mean, they they weren't pursuing Bill Clinton over Monica Lewinsky for criminal activity, right, right? I love it. I cried. I mean, let's not forget it. And I'm I'm coming around to your way of thinking, I think that the Democrats do need to start impeachment proceedings. Yeah. I think they need to start it. I think they need to open the hearings. I think they need to call witnesses. And I think that that that that that perhaps something would happen as it happened in the Nixon enrichment proceedings, maybe you'll get a John dean as a witness, right? Who will reveal tapes, right, right? Okay. May have. Yeah. Right. We're gonna continue. We only got a couple of calls left here. Let's go to Mark Mark. What's up, Mark? Mark. Mark Mark, Mark you're on. Mark you're on head taking my call. And I shout out the lady be obviously, you know. I I have my own. But I think that we've had this discussion before all people give me respectful of the political opposition and their vote, you know, so we don't wanna tie in from voters or their vote. You don't make it clear that we respect that. You're not gonna change your mind. But you know, I think it's easy to find out the -tunities. Healthcare may have come from policies backed by Democrats, and you know, you let them vent you let them fade thing and their stuff. And if if you opening you mentioned that and you say, you know, we're not gonna vote. The whole country is swinging the pendulum swung with Obama hit hit up long back, but the whole country flinging towards single payer. You know, a lot of progressive politics. Anyway, I, you know, I think we should have our propping point in line. You know, you get me fired up and you've use it. It'll bama's use it. And. Republicans had bar you would public relations agent for Trump, and he was using there's no collusion. No obstruction. I mean, I think that we should be your so much to criticize, but we should be picking our battles. Choose your battles. So, you know, the Democratic National Committee ought to open up a website use your battle with to like Chinese menu. When we're talking about number nine today because there's forty nine of them. But, you know, the top of the list, it'd be focused, and we should follow leadership like zero in early in the show, and you know, quote, what the leaders are saying Craig thirty. Okay, mark. Thank you, very much got one more for Braddock party. We hope that they have twenty twenty vision can use that one point vision for the Democrats haven't heard much from our fake team. Remember that conversation. Yeah. Yeah. He's never been more than focusing. Trump is his name. Okay. Thanks. Now, I must know Mark raises a very interesting point. And I was I was impressed. I was watching George Stephanopoulos last Sunday morning. And they had Rahm Emanuel on and they had can Chris Christie. Yeah. And Emmanuel Christie's told manual. He said, I'm glad you retired. Was making too much sense. Yeah. Emmanuel, you know, as a former strategy skipper, legal strategies. Right. And he said, and it makes more sense than anything. I've heard in years. Emmanuel said to the Democrats stop swinging at every pitch Trump thrown. Yeah. I saw I and he said he's setting the tone, right? He's defining the issue. Right. And it is not immigration. You need to point out that Trump has proposed the biggest cuts in Medicare and social security that we have ever seen. Right. The major cuts and he said, and no one's talking about that. And that's what that healthcare debate. And that that cuts in and Medicare, right? That's what gave the Democrats the midterm election. Right. And they're not using it. They're going after immigration and there's winging every pitch Trump throws. And I think he's right. Mike makes that issue. Yeah. And that's a good point. But he is so atrocious lacking kids up in cages separate their mothers. I mean, you can't just be silent on that. I don't think I don't say you should be silent. But why aren't you setting? The why aren't the Democrats raising issue? Why are they setting issue for this campaign? He isn't it healthcare. Why isn't it Medicare cuts? Yeah. I mean, and the Trump administration has now targeted seniors there. There was just a story the other day that they just started seniors, and they're they're doing they're they're doing a. Stephen Colbert did that the other night. Yeah. Pointing out that they're targeting social media at seniors voters spending. Why aren't the Democrats raising issues that matter to the seniors seniors senior Medicare means a length to me right Ecorse? You know, a court. I mean immigration is a secondary issue to me. Why are we talking about? Yeah. No, he's doing all sorts of things. We gotta take a break when last break, and we're gonna we got two calls limp. We'd be back after this.

And so instantaneous brought in that tracking the song is really good. So what's your evaluation of Kim Fowley? You know, just just you know, he had a great sense of humor. I mean, a lot of songs are like there's. Yeah, they're just they're just really I mean, there's some bad ones. But there's still. Yeah. For all his like, you know, whatever he he was not an insightful person. Yeah. And there's just they're just excited there a lot of really exciting. And he was just you know, I I like how he's just from that, you know, trash era of make a fast, buck rock and roll. And it's very like, you know, some of that stuff is the best stuff, you know, that kind of era it went away. And he was one of the last guys hang out with Brendan Mullin, you know, LA music fame, and he's over at my office one time we're talking about maybe doing a book, and he had just been hanging out with Kim Fowley because they've known each other like a hundred and twenty years. I said man, I met that dude wants what a character said, man. I was with me he said, so you know, what I do in the evenings. See? No, I get. My walking cane, Mike Cape, and I walked the streets, like the vampire or something. Like that. And he said, wow, K Kim like he's just completely gone on himself. Just. Yeah. Yeah. Way out there. Yeah. He was you know, it's like a old Hollywood old Hollywood version of rock and roll, you know, because he was there in the fifties. And and he was just you know, you know, if you look at early rock and roll a little like, maybe, you know, it's like it was a way like people can make a million dollars in the majors. Didn't know what to do with it. It was like, you know, teenage garbage major labels to do. And that's why a lot of the early rock and roll labels are run by teenagers and African Americans women people who weren't part of the corporate American clubs. Yeah. Yeah. A lot of people with like bought magazine bump records. Whereas this kind of a natural thing where we love these bands. And the bump does such a great job. But it. Was way more low to the ground. And I got it for him when I met him like all right? You are the real thing street hustle. You are stone coal hustler before Kim fallacy. We heard just in love. And so I hate to do this. I'm not trying to either blow the proverbial smoker put you on the spot. But we love you on the show man and a son that we play at least once every fiscal quarter. I'm kind of obsessed to the song. I have four copies of this seven to black vinyl limited was the white vinyl from you years ago. And when I got I found on the EBay, it's it's just one of the greatest songs ever. It's a band called the felt letters. Okay. I know the two seven, and then there's this weird like three seven inch or two seven inch foldout pack. I've found on discounts years ago where there's like two felt letters songs with some Andrew w k tracks on. Another side. And those songs are good. We I lifted off the vinyl we could play them on the, but then years ago, you have them up on the internet's for a minute. And then they went away. There's more felt letters tracks. Arthur of there's a whole album, okay? You're killing me, man. Like, we try to get into put them out. Okay. Well, can you? And I like we're going to go back to the steam room after this is over and maybe like open KOMO time. Let's let's talk about this. Because that's you and Brendan Canty. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Who's amazing? He's a genius. He can play every damn instrument on the state and more. And he's such a cool, dude. He's a drummer in FU Gazi nights spring indefatigable. Yeah. He was on the last MC five where the Wayne Kramer played everybody in the world FedEx he's in. That is coming to Zebulon April seventeen right with Anna Connolly opening. So he so the two of you together in one band. So how do the filters come to be is six hundred thousand bands truck, we're about to play in a second is that own session. Or did you guys do multiple sessions? We were just you know, we were actually just we just left the tape player on. And we just because we heard that how candidate and we were just jam jam jam. And then we kind of like you edited some songs later. So yeah, there's a lot of songs actually. Okay. I three that on the inter- for a minute. And I loved him years ago. Those all Atlit. Let me ask you about this vocal because this is one of my favorite vocals of all time. How prepared was the vocal for six hundred thousand bands. It was just add like all letters were. You rhyme Robert Fricke with lips. Oh, well, I had a couple of notes posted. Free refrigerator? But basically because like your phrasing. It says so in the moment with the music. It's perfect. Thank you. You're very welcome. You gotta just you guys kind of stood up and did it. Yeah. Yeah. But there's hours of you know, stuff. That's not as good. Yeah. Okay. Fair enough. But this is really good..
"kim fowley" Discussed on Rock N Roll Archaeology
"And I don't think I put it in the book. But I I know Millington fanny has told the story that Kim Fowley walked into Fanny's dressing room and said, I'm gonna do exactly what you do. But I'm gonna make money. And so he put the runaways together thereafter. And and that was the goal. It was like, you know, I it started with with that intention. It wasn't just you know, girls getting together to Rockall though. It'd be kinda was that too. But yeah, it's like the Madonna question. Madonna feminist for doing all the stuff she did in the eighties or is she exploitative? I mean, I don't know. I guess. That's I mean, that's a question. I guess this answered by the artists themselves would I dress up in like, Sherry Cherie Curie, and you know, wear of cancel guardrail on stage. No that was her choice. So. It worked for her. She seemed comfortable in it. And you know, didn't give a shit and isn't that part of rock and roll? It's all about freedom and explain right and they were teenagers. I mean think about you know, everybody does stuff when they're teenager. You're you're I mean, even wanna Jackson if you think about it. She was a teenager when she went into capitol records and said, I wanna sing let's have a party. I want to do the song. I mean, some sometimes being a bold teenager it works in in rock and roll, especially I mean, if it's going to work anywhere. That's where it's going to work. Well, let me change gears a bit for a moment. And just talk about women in rock in general. It's pretty obvious that at the start it was just a man's world. But slowly women are leading in the door. Well, maybe they just had to kick in. But now if you look at my head to kick it in. Atlantic. Now, if you look at the pop charts it is completely dominated by women. So kind of a dual question do you lament? The fact so many girls were denied the opportunity that that guys were in the booming period of pop music. Do you mean the booming like the? Yeah, you know, let's say February nineteen sixty four is the nuclear bomb that goes off that, you know, the next day everybody every every guy gets guitar, and you know, that for the next fifteen to twenty years is the, you know, the classic rock period. It's funny because that right prior to the British invasion was the heyday of girl groups it where you find your your Ronnie spector and the crystals in the Shangri laws and all these very who became very influential. But the British invasion, kind of they they fell in love with the girl groups, but then they kind of wipe them off the charts in they did. So I wonder if if it's you know, perhaps it was an American thing. Maybe it was a British thing too. I mean Marianne faithful's in the book and her story is when you compare it with the Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. You know, she kinda went south while they were flying high. I think it was a lot of cultural things that were preventing women from entering that pop music world and succeeding in. I I think there were a lot of obstacles, including you know, all these preconceived notions about what you were supposed to do in be that in that era. You know, now, we it seems ridiculous. But then I'm sure it felt very real on. Sure. It did. Okay. Just because she's one of my all time favorites in holy unique. Again. We're talking only fifty spots, but why the inclusion of Susie sue another great question, Susie. Sue. She was sort of like the godmother of so much of modern music, pop Goth dance, her style. With certainly unique. In extraordinary interesting story, she wrote really heroin lyrics. I mean, the stories about what happened her when she was child and all this trauma is in the book, and she made this very unique music, and I look for artists. I mean, there are so many punk rock women really women. When women busted out was during the seventies. The the punk era one of the times in rock and roll. And I I had you know, I wanted to pick someone who who made actually a few different artists who made these very unique sounds, and she was just one of very beginning. No. You know, sure. She was hanging around the..

"To you. You know, the rock the superstar actor in winter who just wants to sneak into things have no one even realize it like, that's that's how you get off at this point. If you're Mike Myers, I guess I kind of understand that. Because Myers idolizes Peter Sellars bright, Peter Sellars, one of the geniuses of Peter Sellars is every movie would be starring Peter sellers. And then he would transform and you'd be like, I don't know how he does it he transformed again as opposed to Mike Myers who was literally movies. And you're like, I didn't know that was Mike Myers. Right. That's a ludicrous thing happened going too far there. Yes. He may have rob just for context. What is your all time favorite movie that has the shape sort of rock bio pic? I don't know spinal tap counts, spinal tap down. Definitely absolutely spinal tap, you know, if it has to be a real life thing movie. I really loved was the runaways. Oh, yeah. Kristen Stewart Dakota fanning. Yeah, I made it, and it's you don't watch that movie for a second look at those people in sync that those people are thinking like I'm going to win an Oscar for this as you can tell walk the line was like that, you know, bohemian rhapsody to a set is like that. Like, it's the runaways is pretty trashy and pretty sort of lurid and not concerned at all with accuracy or good taste or any of those things. But I do think that those are attractive qualities in Iraq bio pic, especially of the band, the runaways like, I think you want a certain kind of ambition, but not necessarily total. Accuracy ambition not necessarily award show ambition. You know, I think that movie particular just found a nice little middle path. Yeah. I agree with you. For those who haven't seen that Florida's Monday, this talion filmmaker woman made that movie, it's really quite good. There's also a very good, Michael, Shannon, performances. Kim Fowley the sort of angel devil of LA rock in the seventies. Which banned deserves a movie like this. What's what's it been having? That was the first thing that kind of crept into my mind when I out, you know, I feel like they're too over exposed the number of movies already made about Kirk cobaine. But like Nevada somebody's gonna take a shot at this at some point. Right. I was looking at last days the Gus van Sant film, which is sort of lured in its own way. It's like, basically just Michael Pitt is staggering around his house like it. It's actually I think he's not actually Kirk obain. But he's obviously, you know, playing Kirk obain figure, and it's literally, you know, the last days of his life like there's there's no vile pick shape or there's no shape to it at all you figure at some point someone's going to take a shot at a pretty conventional. You know, childhood stardom Nevada thing you too. For this like van Halen has potential just the number of characters, you know, and just to try and cast, you know, David Lee, Roth and Sammy Hagar guns N roses. Someone's probably gonna do at some point with L Gorz that elgar guy is going to be axl rose are going to try to be axl rose. And it's going to be Ansel Elgort. It's going to be great. I swear I wanted to say the talking heads myself. So that's probably you know, a personal thing. That's that's a really good idea. You just you you really scrambled brain with Ansel Elgort as axl rose. This might use coming apart in real you're gonna be you're gonna be talking yourself into it. I won't be promise. You. Later this or I suppose next year Taryn Eggerton, he Kingsman fame will be portraying Elton John and that movie is actually directed by Dexter Fletcher who finished this Queen movie. Oh, well, and Terron is singing. He singing the Elton John song. No that looks quite poor. So I'm not. Who knows it could be wonderful. Actually, you know. It's funny. I I was thinking about this too. Because Queen is this sort of perfectly memorialize band in our minds. You know, the songs we will rock you as has woven itself into our DNA and rhapsody to these become like. I know karaoke jams for life. Right. And we haven't had a movie about like the Rolling Stones. Right. We're the Beatles. These bands that the members are still some of the members are still living in their protecting their legacies..

So I just tried to put the word out. I knew a girl named Kerry chrome. The lyrics use lyricist. Where'd you meet her there at the club? Yeah, at Ronnie's and I thought she played an instrument. So I said, you want to form an all go band and she said, I, I don't. Play just right. We're expert. Maybe you should talk to my publisher and Kim Fowley. Yeah, so I did.

I didn't know anything about him very peripherally this from from the club, seeing San round and stuff, but I'm sort of an ominous guy wasn't he to other people? Yeah, you dominance is very tall, double jointed and he used that kind of stuff. He dance, and so he just was very, could be very intimidating to a lot of people. I guess that's what he did intimidate a lot of people. He had this weird soa career, right for years, right? Yes. I don't know a lot about him.
