I was freezing. It's the middle of winter, 1979.. I'm standing in line outside at Jay's Longhorn, waiting to see the Plasmatics. "New Hope for the Wretched" was getting a lot of playing time on my stereo.
I'm hissed over to a beat up car parked directly across from the front door.
It's my friends Steve and Toby. Steve is a dead ringer for Mark David Chapman. Toby is Sid Vicious's little brother.
"Paul, get in!"
I hop in back. Steve hands me a Black Label. I look for the cops and slam it.
Steve and Toby, drunk and stoned, giggle manically.
"What's so fucking funny?"
Lying on the front seat is half a ham, a block of cheese and a loaf of bread.
"Want a sandwich?" Toby asks.
He doesn't wait for an answer, slicing up ham and cheese with his switchblade.
"Where'd you get this shit?"
"Somebody forgot to lock the kitchen," Toby laughs.
I eat a huge sandwich and slam a couple more Black Labels.
I look over. The line outside the bar is gone.
"Shit, I gotta go. The fucking Plasmatics are gonna start! Yew guys going?"
"Nah,". Steve says. "It's sold out."
I jump out of the car and run into the bar.
The place is packed. The intro 16mm film rolls.
Wendy is driving a pink early'60s Cadillac convertible down a pier. She's going fast. At the end of the pier is the Plasmatic's stage, guitars, amps, mic stands. Wendy floors it, jumping out before the Caddy smashes through the stage and sinks in the East River.
The film ends and the show starts. Best punk rock show ever! Richard Stotts, the left handed guitar player is at least 7' tall, dressed in a tutu and bunny ears. The drummer is wearing a Leatherface mask. The black bass player looks like Jordy from Star Trek. Wendy, sporting a perfectly coiffed blonde mohawk, has shaving cream covering her breasts with black bandaids covering her nipples. She squats and masterbates while her band ROCKS! She saws a Fender Strat in half with a chainsaw and smashs a plugged in TV with a sledgehammer. They play all the hits, including my fave "Butcher Baby."
At the end of the set, the house lights flip on. There are cops everywhere. An opportunistic thief ripped off the intro film so the entire audience was practically strip searched. It was winter, lots of coats to check. The cops were pissed. Wendy's antics bordered on obscenity and the crowd wasn't happy about the cops. The thief was smart. He split before the show ended. The film was gone.
