The Dope Show
Though he was said to be responsible for part of Marilyn Manson's creepy image (and his stage name references a killer/grave robber), recently deceased original M.M. bassist Gidget Gein (a.k.a. Bradley Stewart) seemed — unlike the band's leader — a gentle and sweet soul in person. Dropped from the group because of his drug use just as it was about to explode, G.G. may have battled the most dreadful of demons, but even when he was at his lowest, his rock and art guises — The Dali-Gaggers and Gollywood shows — maintained voracious vision. Nightranger had been in touch with Gein just days before his accidental O.D. in October, and he had many things in the works, including a pal's band he'd joined called People and some upcoming TV and solo music projects.
A memorial benefit at the Dragonfly last Wednesday, hosted by Apocalipstick lass Lenora Claire and fetish model Courtney Cruz, featured Gein's art and an array of fiendish friends and fans performing in his honor, including Ego Plum, Me and My Machine, Prince Poppycock, Dukey Flyswatter and the Damned Ol Opry and Kim Fowley (crooning new original songs including "Bag Boy," inspired by one of Gidge's day jobs as body-part collector at Florida County Coroner's office). Those in attendance included Jessicka (Scarling, Jack off Jill), DJ-club kid Juicy Jay, former Courtney Love guitarist Lisa Leveridge, Joshua Lectric (composer), Allen Wrench (best known — by conspiracy bloggers anyway — as the man who departed Mentors frontman El Ducefingered as Kurt Cobain's killer ... hired by Love, no less), Brian Clark (co-founder of UnPop — the irreverent and subversive, some might say offensive art movement to which Gein belonged), groovy gal/Gein pal Giddle Partridge and monstrously marvelous queens Squeaky Blonde and "drag daughter" Fade-Dra (all in Gein's signature roach-print frocks).
Though a pale, black-haired fella haunting a corner booth all night was thought by many to be Manson himself, it was just an Anti-Christ Superstar wannabe. In fact, MM has yet to publicly comment on his old band mate's untimely death. Claire tells us funds raised from the gathering will buy Gein a nice memorial plaque at Hollywood Forever cemetery (his ashes are in Florida, his homestate).

KIM FOWLEY ENJOYS MOVIE & MUSIC ACTIVITY EXPLOSION
THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
Kristen Stewart to play Joan Jett
'Runaways' biopic from writer-director Floria Sigismondi
Fresh from the success of "Twilight," Kristen Stewart is set to portray Joan Jett in "The Runaways," the rock 'n' roll biopic of the 1970s all-girl band.
Video director Floria Sigismondi wrote the screenplay and is directing, while John and Art Linson and River Road Entertainment's Bill Pohlad are producing. Jett will act as an executive producer.
The Runaways were hugely influential as the first successful all-girl hard rock band; its members included guitarists Jett and Lita Ford, drummer Sandy West, singer-keyboardist Cherie Currie and bassist Jackie Fox. The band was brought together in late 1975 by impresario Kim Fowley, who thought a novelty act of teenaged girls performing in leather and lace would be an easy sell, but the girls ended up proving to be serious and influential musicians with songs like "Cherry Bomb." The band lasted about four years together, falling apart over management and money issues.
Jett continued her rock career into the '80s, forming the Blackhearts and scoring with such hits as "I Love Rock N' Roll" and "I Hate Myself for Loving You." She continues to record and tour.
The film will revolve around Jett and Currie and follow them from the band's meteoric rise as teenagers to their dissolution and disillusionment.
The movie is eyeing a 2009 start and will work around Stewart's commitments to the two "Twilight" sequels. The first one, "New Moon," is expected to shoot sometime in first-quarter 2009, with Stewart reprising her role as Bella, the human who falls for a vampire.
"Twilight" has made more than $120 million since opening Nov. 21.
"Runaways" reunites the Gersh-repped Stewart with Art Linson and Pohlad, with whom she worked on "Into the Wild." She also appeared in the Linson-produced "What Just Happened."
These Atlanta jokesters bring a rejuvenated punk playfulness to their excellent debut, Trippin' with Howlies.
BY JOE COSCARELLI
What? Drawing influence from rock'n'roll's greats -- from the Velvet Underground's loose jangle and the Stooges' brash punk to Chuck Berry's '50s teen boogie and Sam Cooke's candy-coated doo-wop -- Atlanta, GA, quartet Howlies' upcoming debut, Trippin' with Howlies, is like a rock history textbook written by the classroom's smart alecs. "Sea Level" bounces on ascending group chants and double-time California surf rock; "Chimera" is full of twinkling pop-rock guitars and catchy vocal harmonies (listen below); and the '60s rock/doo-wop of "Aluminum Baseball Bat" would recall Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons if not for the deliciously cheeky lyrics about beating an ex-lover's new squeeze with a baseball bat. In their sonic hop-scotching, one things remains constant -- light-hearted fun.
Who? Howlies -- longtime pals Justin Brooke and Brandon Morrison (vocals/guitars), Aaron Wood (vocals/drums), and Matt Forsee (vocals/bass) -- get their name (Hawaiian slang for "tourists") from a line in the 1987 surf B-movie classic North Shore: "Stay loose, howlie!" The group's first release, the "Sea Level" EP, dropped August 12 and is just a teaser for the band's full-length, which the boys -- who all share a two-bedroom house in Atlanta -- recorded in the California desert last spring with producer Kim Fowley (Modern Lovers, the Germs, the Runaways). Trippin' with Howlies drops in January via Over/Under Records.
Fun Fact: During the recording of Trippin' with Howlies, Fowley required that everyone involved eat nothing but junk food, insisting that "if you start eating sushi it won't be rock'n'roll."

!!!KIM FOWLEY & CHERIE CURRIE RE-UNITE @ HOUDINI'S MANSION!!!
by Lina Lecaro
June 17, 2008 1:28 AM
Documented in both the Rodney Bingenheimer bio-pic Mayor of the Sunset Strip and former Runaways bassist Vicky Tischler-Blue's rock doc about the seminal LA punkettes called Edgeplay (not to mention countless print interviews over the years) the feud between the band's creator Kim Fowley and front-person Cherie Currie has included accusations of abuse, exploitation and downright evil doings.
So when the two unexpectedly came face to face last Friday at a bash in the Hollywood Hills right before our eyes, we almost ran for cover and waited for the (Cherry) bomb to drop. Shockingly, there was no need, as Currie warmly reached out to the statuesque, face-paint-sporting songwriter/Svengali with a hug "for the first time in decades," and apologized to him for her past rancor, blaming it on her years as "a drunk." Fowley glanced our way as to make sure we recognized the significance of the moment, but there was no need. We've interviewed both over the years and were very much aware of their treacherous relationship.
"Just because somebody rolls a camera and somebody says, 'Oh, this is how it was.' That was their interpretation at the time. The people who go to movies ultimately need to be entertained, and every movie needs a hero and villain."
Fowley gave us the above quote for an LA Times story we did about Edgeplay back in 2004, and though Currie's willingness to bury the hatchet doesn't necessarily mean her past claims were untrue, it seems the now-sober blond babe (who famously played a druggie in the film Foxes ) is now happy, healthy and ready to put the past behind her. Well, not the all of it. She told us she'll be commenting on the Fowley/Joan Jett penned classic "Cherry Bomb" for an upcoming VH1 special, and even asked Kim to join her.
Unfortunately, fans waiting for the much-buzzed-about Runaways movie will have to wait a little longer. Fowley (who's been busy with his Sirius Satellite radio show) says the project was put on hold after the Writer's Strike.
UPDATE: Just heard from Joan Jett's PR people, and the film is in fact, in pre-production with Art and John Linson producing. No actresses attached yet, but we'll let you know when we there is.
Read more about the party (at the Houdini Mansion) and the pair's makeup session in this Thursday's Nightranger column.

Kim Fowley & The Lost SXSW Pix
Kim Fowley met various bands @ SXSW . . . yes, I had their pictures-posters-flyers on an earier version of this blog. . . but once again I had problems with a part time email "genius". . . who somehow "lost?"-"misplaced?"-"deleted?" these SXSW artifacts.
My apologies to you if you were once on this blog/bulletin and no longer find you self here. Please re-send this missing material. . . or pix of us together so you can join the rest of us on this profile. . . the only band picture that survived the "mistake" is below.
You'll be pleased to know that Richard Rogers, mixing-audio engineer-multi-instumentalist from the Inland Empire, is here in my lifeboat, trying to find a safe harbor. . . Richard joins my other International Cyberspace Team. . . who are currently helping me in Re-building my damaged Internet/Cyberspace World. . .that ceased to function on Febuary 3rd, 2008 when a previous co-worker decided to go elsewhere. . .leaving me drifting in a Sea Of Confusion. . .minus Codes-Files-Passwords-Visual Equipment-Accounting Components etc.
As you probably guessed, Kim Fowley is Computer Challenged . . .hence my lack of constant clarity online. It doesn't help that I've been bootlegged by unknown "Humans". . . who took it upon themselves to build un-authorized Fan Sites, that are based on two different bands, I used to be in.
Hopefully, this confused situation can be fixed. Meanwhile, enjoy the only band that survived the latest "Inter-Office Human Error"!

WINTER WONDERLAND CONFIDENTIAL
Kim Fowley had a great Winter Wonderland Party Experience during the Holiday Season - Gary Stewart opened his Music Museum / Home to hordes of So Cal Vinyl Freaks as well as members of the A&R, Publishing and Legal Communities.
The next Skin Game was a Hollywood Bondage Event @ the Henry Fonda Theatre AKA the Music Box on Hollywood Blvd.
In the tradition of Dustin Hoffman (Tootsie) and Robin Williams (Mrs Doubtfire), KF wore his Blue Dress over Austrian Winter Underwear.
I am predicting that 18-year-old Heidi Core is a Super Model Star of Tomorrow.
My Underground Garage Mentor, Little Steven sent me the best Xmas Card ever as pictured below.
The Holiday Season would not have been complete unless an album hurled out of the chute with a Kim Fowley-written song on it.
