Yesterday on Local Smoke Radio I was lucky enough to score a few minutes with the honorable Reverend Derek Moody aka Bloody F. Mess aka Buddy F. Mess of the Church of Rock radio show and Bloody Mess and the Scabbs, an 80's shock-rock band! Click on the link to hear the interview! Thank you so much, sir. It was humbling to have an authenticity session with you yesterday. Derek is a huge community activist and he is genuinely one of those people trying to make the world a better place.
Here are all the links I can find to his stuff:
From IMDB: "Bloody F Mess has been doing "it" since early 1983, screaming the blues. His first band was Chips Patroll playing hardcore punk/thrash. Later they changed their name to The Unaccepted. Played shows with bands like The Necros & M.I.A. touring all over America. After that he formed Bloody Mess & Hate (in 1985) Bloody and crew played all over and have recorded with the King of Underground music GG Allin. Bloody did a spoken word set on GG's Hated in The Nation tour that ended in Dallas TX with GG being stabbed.". In 1988, Bloody Mess & The Skabs was formed. The band was signed to Black & Blue Records & did many 7 inch records & albums & CD's. The band made newspaper headlines both locally & nationally when art was used on our first record, which was drawn by serial killer John Wayne Gacy. They then were banned more often than not from clubs, halls & parties, because of destructive stage shows and all around chaos & debauchery. Bloody later became Reverend Derek Moody (on the radio) & enjoyed a full time radio gig from 6-Midnites in Bloomington for 3 years. Since 2010 to early 2012 Bloody was touring and recording as Bloody Mess & The Hollowbodys. In 2013 Bloody made his first film appearance in Bar B Gurlz and in British Horror musical Spidarlings for which he also composed a song."
+ The first legal recreational marijuana sales in the city of Los Angeles began Friday, nearly three weeks after much of California launched the legal cannabis business. The landmark came with less fanfare than the widely televised launch of pot sales on Jan. 1 in other California cities. But it was still a happy moment for Los Angeles cannabis sellers and their customers, who had been waiting for sales to begin in the city. Los Angeles was slow to issue regulations for marijuana sales to any adult over age 21, though a 2016 ballot measure had cleared the way for the practice anywhere in California. The state’s biggest city approved about two dozen business for legal “adult” sales on Jan. 13, but they still awaited a final stamp of approval from the state. That came through for at least three of the businesses Friday evening.
+ The Rohrabacher-Blumenauer Amendment blocks the U.S. Department of Justice from using federal funds to crack down on state medical cannabis programs. The amendment was last extended on Dec. 22, 2017 through Jan. 19. But on Friday, Jan. 19, Senators failed to reach an agreement on the federal omnibus spending bill, causing a government shutdown. According to NORML officials, the Rohrabacher-Blumenauer Amendment automatically expired under the recent government shutdown.
+ One 11-year-old in Illinois, who experiences seizures as a result of her chemotherapy treatments, is now allowed to medicate with cannabis while she’s at school.
+ From the farthest reaches north in San Francisco to the southernmost parts of the state like San Diego, California’s most populated areas are already opening up shop.
+ A recent study published in the The Economic Journal found that after the implementation of medical cannabis laws, there was a significant drop in violent crimes in states sharing a border with Mexico.
+ The Georgia NAACP launched an investigation on behalf of the arrests of about 70 partygoers who were arrested for less than an ounce of total cannabis. On the night of Dec. 30, 2017, the Cartersville Police Department raided a 21st birthday party in Cartersville, Georgia, and found less than an ounce of cannabis. Since nobody would claim the cannabis, officers decided to arrest everyone at the party.
