. . . Former Rationals Scott Morgan and Terry Traban are back together and kicking out the jams again in the Guardian Angel, a new Michigan band that should prove to be absolutely dangerous. Guardian Angel played their first job Saturday April 24 with Commander Cody and the Stooges and were received well by what was probably one of the biggest crowds to ever pack in to the Palladium. Guardian Angel has Scott's brother Dave Morgan on drums and Tex (formerly with Mitch Ryder's Detroit) on lead along with Traban (who als o did a short stint with Detroit after the Rationals' demise) on bass and the eider Morgan singing lead and playing rythmn. Before they broke up last year the Rationals were Michigan's oldest group and had done a lot of killer tunes including one "Guitar Army, " from which John Sinclair got the title for his new bofck, which will be published in September by Douglas books. . . . Several local groups are scheduled to play as part of the various May Day celebrationsanti-war actions. As of this writing Mitch Ryder, Commander Cody, the MC 5 (ose third album is expected any day), Frut, Barbara Holliday, the Pride, Guardian Angel, and Brat will be in Washington D. C. on Saturday and Sunday. The Up will be playing at May Day events in Iowa City, Iowa and Lincoln, Nebraska. The only two bands to get the 60, 000 people who attended the all-night concert at the Washington monument on their feet last Saturday (April 24) were Redbone and Ann Arbor's own Brat, who did their amazing set as the sun came up. Right on, Bratsters! . . . The Stooges are playing again, after a long absence. . . . Danny Car lisie is back in Detroit after a gig at a Chicago FM station. Hear him on WRIF, 3-7 daily.
