“Strange Tales From The Doc” #25 This weeks “Strange Tales” is about the time my wife Crystal and I appeared on the cover (well kinda) of the 1993 Creamers cd “Hurry Up and Wait”



“Strange Tales From The Doc” #25 This weeks “Strange Tales” is about the time my wife Crystal and I appeared on the cover (well kinda) of the 1993 Creamers cd “Hurry Up and Wait”. The Creamers were a late 1980’s L.A. based punk band. They are actually the first full length release, entitled “Love, Honor, Obey” by the legendary Sympathy Records. That lp is still a killer release and one that flew under the radar by most. If you see it, GET IT! Female fronted Punk Rock plain and simple. [plus they put on an awesome live gig too].

For some time The Creamers were a band that we would see often and actually became friendly with. My old buddy Louis Beso became very close to the drummer Bob [no, not like “that” just good friends. They were both painters] so we always knew when and where they were playing. The Creamers had an idea for their upcoming full length “Hurry Up and Wait” and needed some “bodies” for a photo shoot. Crystal and I plus Louis and his wife Tina, their son Devon, Tim from The Mr T Experience and a spattering of others showed up to the “lovely” city of Willmington, Ca and stood wait at a barely used bus stop, while watching our backs, for this photo shoot.
Now you may remember [if you have ANY memory retention] I said we were on the cover of the cd “kinda”? Remember that? I’ll take a minute for you to re-read the FIRST sentence..Done? Good! Either we (me not Crystal) weren’t deemed good looking enough or maybe we were (Crystal not me) TO good looking, but we were “folded” and ended up on the other side of the fold (inside the cover). I’m the one with the fishing hat and Crystal is that Big Dope with the funny smile on her face. Why does she still look the same 20 years later?
We lost touch with The Creamers. The bassist Andi later went into to form the band Snap-Her but as far as the others go, I’m not sure. We’ll always have the good memories of a great band though! Until next time guys!

“Strange Tales From the Doc” #24 Here’s another “Growing up Strange” story for you friends….


“Strange Tales From the Doc” #24
Here’s another “Growing up Strange” story for you friends.

 

This one is all about the “Great Shaving Era”. As I’ve said before one of our rules (the only rule) was, “If you pass out you WILL get your eyebrows shaved and you are not allowed to get mad about it”. For the most part that held true. Until things started to get out of hand. Eyebrows were one thing but then that escalated into shaving pubes, giving fucked up haircuts, dying hair, marking on people etc… One of the best (worst?) was my buddy (he’s like a brother to me) Gary. I’ve known Gary since 3rd grade. Out of our entire group of friends Gary was probably the smartest of us all. His one downfall? He liked to drink and that always got him in trouble. Gary, Beaman and myself all lived together in a studio apartment in Upland in the early 80’s. And of course it became the “hang-out” of all our friends. People drinking, passing out etc was the norm. One night in particular I had been out all night at a gig. Thus giving me the perfect alibi of, “I wasn’t even there, how could I have done that?” But of course I always did…

I got home late to find Beaman asleep on the couch and Gary passed out in bed. I woke up Beaman and convinced him to shave Gary’s eyebrows. And then his arm hair. And then cut his hair. And then glue on his cut hair to his missing eyebrows. And then, here it comes, his pubes! Of course I was taking pictures the whole time while Beaman asked , “You’re not getting me in the pictures are you?”. I said, “No, no, don’t worry I’m not”. (yeah, I was…..). The night ending up with pictures of Gary getting shaved from head to toe and “revealing” pictures of Beaman “Tea-Bagging” him [and more disturbing images I still can’t get out of my head].

The next day I ran over to the 1 hour Photomart (you should have seen the owners face when I picked them up!) and mailed these pictures to Gary with a ransom note I cut out from the pages of a magazine. Something like “If you don’t leave $100.00 by the tree in front of your apartment we will send these to your Mom”. AWESOME! He wasn’t happy about it and I felt bad about it. I mean I felt bad I wasn’t there to stop Beaman from doing this to him. What a dick! Pictured here are some shots of our studio apartment, shaving Gary and more nonsense….

From Mike’s Gofundme page…


I have spent most of my life recording albums, touring and playing benefits for those in need. I have been diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of prostate cancer that requires immediate treatment. It has spread to my bones and I have run out of money on surgeries and procedures to find out what type of cancer and how advanced it is. Now that we’ve identified it, I have no money for treatment and that needs to be started immediately. I need help. Prayers help, but the finances are desperately needed.
