Cheetah Chrome returned toTorontoto play some shows with the Screwed again.  In addition to playing the Dakota Tavern  on Friday the 21st, Cheetah and the Screwed recorded some songs for Cheetah’s upcoming solo album at Grant Avenue Studio inHamilton.  To round off the rock’n’roll weekend, Cheetah performed a live session for CIUT Radio’s Equillizing X Distort, playing some of his own tunes along with several Dead Boys songs.  Like their show at the Dakota, Cheetah and the Screwed were smokin’ hot.  Cheetah, who brought along his wife Anna and their 2 year old song to the station, was later interviewed by Stephe Perry.  Cheetah talked about his time in Cleaveland, OH, when he played in Rocket From The Tombs with David Thomas (who later formed Pere Ubu); about meeting Stiv Bators in Cleaveland, forming the Dead Boys and moving to New York City; about the 1970s CBGB’s & Max’s Kansas scene; about the Dead Boys playing Toronto for the first time, among many other topics.  ToBeScene’s Aldo Erdic was there to record the event, along with some help from videographer Henry Martinuk.
