Wayne Kramer, the brilliant onetime guitarist for the MC5
will join onetime Punk magazine honcho Legs McNeil for a series of
readings that will take place in L. A. beginning today. McNeil and Gillian
McCain are the authors of the recently published punk oral history, Please
Kill Me, which rather graphically documents the New York scene of the
mid-'70s. Kramer is expected to deliver a solo performance at the readings.
He'll also join onetime MC5 manager and revolutionary poet John Sinclair on
August 4 at the House of Blues. Sinclair has been touring with his avant-garde
jazz-rock-blues combo, Sinclair's Blues Scholars. Now we hear that Sinclair
will be recording an album later this year in collaboration with Kramer.
