"Well, I am finally sending you the pictures of CRK’s biggest fans. Now their friends who come over often ask if they can dance to the Irish song & the pizza song. You have quite a following in Laurel Elementary and Harlansburg Presby Pre-School!"















A bit about Nick

Nick Bartlone was born a poor black child of a sharecropper family in the Mississippi Delta. Eating rocks, bark, dirt and polyvinyl chloride waste took their toll on Nick as he was growing up, and he was seized early with the desire to play the accordion. Electroshock therapy did not dissuade him from this, and, in early 1919, his parents threw him down a well in East Muffmunch, Wisconsin. A passing Marine battalion took pity on the soggy imp and, after a shave and a race change, inducted him into the Corps. He met a woman in a red dress and moved to Yuma. It was all downhill after that.

Musical influences: Wallace and Ladmo, Tricky Dick and Spiro.

Astrological sign: Malnop, the wounded fruit bat.

Other unprintables:  Women love to touch his monkey. Plays birthday parties.

Claim to fame:  Played Boise - Sang with Ralph Nader at the "Sell Out Now!" 20 Man March.

What's a Chuckawalla?
