Nels Cline and Norton Wisdom

I actually have no idea what this is but something tells me to paste it into “Plastic Alto”.

I found this via the new Peter Selz book; I noticed Exene Cervenka in the index, as a note. The author of the book got it from Norton Wisdom that Peter Selz learned a wee bit about punk from Bruce Conner and apparently went to a Banyan concert and was introduced maybe to Exene therein. Exene also paints, yes?

To not quite complete a circle, Ava Mendoza told me once that Nels would not give her a lesson but said they should hang some time (art?). Also, this digression had me on Dave Douglas’ site for a minute. Did you know that Dave has 4,000 or so likes on the leading social media format (that I boycott) and 5,000 or so followers on another (that I also boycott). Any hoo, here is a video, which we should all peruse later:
