This is my favorite concert recording of The Untold Fables. They really come out smokin' at this show.  I think they should press some EP's for one of the Record Store Days.  In case you never heard of Record Store Day...  Record Store Day is an internationally celebrated day observed the third Saturday of April each year. Its purpose is to celebrate the culture of the independently owned record store.

One of the greatest bands of all time is Paul Carey & The Untold Fables!! The 1960's Garage / Punk music is some of my favorite things to listen to.  The Count Five, The Standells, The Pretty Things....  Paul Carey had one of the greatest record collections I ever seen.  He was always so nice and lending me whatever I wanted to borrow.  I found it kinda hard to believe at first he was getting a band together when I first heard about it. As David's little brother he was always so quiet.  Now I see he was just saving his voice so he could sing his ass off and sing his ass off he did from 1984 until 1989 with The Untold Fables and later with The Witchdoctors.  Thankfully there is lots of recordings  some of which will be posted here.  

Mark Stone - Boot Camp Graduation December 1980

 David Carey getting annoyed with me taking pictures. This is during the sightseeing in San Diego with Dave Simms and Me.
 Getting home from San Diego....
Mark Stone kind enough to pose for this classic photo for me. It was great to have Mark back with us for a few days after boot camp. December 1980.

This is the second part of a house party tape that I have. Both of these songs are on there EP from 1983 so I do have writing credits for both of these original COS songs. Part three and the last from this party is coming up...

David Carey - Lyric Sheets / Song Writing February 1982



David Carey 
 Lyric Sheets / Song Writing
 February 1982

The Bottom sheet became The Cone Of Silence song "Colors".  

In my Senior year at Capistrano Valley High School I had a creative writing class.  God how I hated school there... Anyways I had to have some poems so I gave my dearest friend David Carey a call and asked him to mail me some out. As you can see in the top one my address in Capistrano.  I got a B on the assignment. I would have gotten an A but I was supposed to tell what category they would fall in. I remember telling the teacher that art should not be categorized.  He marked me down anyways. I did pass that class.  Luckily it wasn't one of those teachers who wanted you in class a certain amount of days.  Probably should have learned more in that class. It would have come in handy for this site.  The distance from home in Capistrano to Mission Viejo where school is was probably about 5 miles.  I'd get up (most days) and my thumb out and if I didn't get a ride within 5 or 10 minutes I go home and go to work later. I went to school 3 or 4 days a week. The next time I went back to school I'd get a chick friend of mine to write a note from my Dad. "Sorry Ed was sick yesterday so please excuse him.....".  You guys from Savanna have no idea how good you had it!!  My Mom shipped me out to live with my Father in Capistrano during my 10th grade year in 1979 at Christmas time.  She thought I was having tooooo much fun. She was right. However I never missed a single day while going to Savanna.  Let me mention some of the "weirdness" that made me feel I moved to another planet down there.  At Savanna everyone wore Vans tennis shoes, jeans and a T Shirt.  At Capo Valley it was Slick Slacks, A button up shirt (the one with the lizard), A sweater tied around your neck and penny loafers!!! And their parties....  They still give me nightmares. Here's a typical one.  There would be 5 jocks in the living room, A couple of cheerleaders blasting The Go Go's and a 12 pack of beer. Then one of the cheerleaders would start screaming hysterically with the others trying to calm her down. And then the cops would come and I'd walk in the door at home by 10 pm with my Dad sitting on the couch asking "Home Already?".  Got plenty homesick. Did I ever love getting back to Anaheim in those days and the parties with live music! David was a huge help. He sent me out a tape of a early rehearsal of the band he was forming called The Cone Of Silence.  On as many weekends as I could afford I'd hop on the Amtrak which luckily the stop was feet from my front door. I'd take it to Fullerton and David or Jim Maxfield or Tony Zamora would be kind enough to pick me up.
