The Dark Words of Mark Presco

Here it is! The lost message of my brother, who celebrates the falling out I had with my daughter, who was kidnapped when she was seventeen. Around this time I asked Heather if she had read Tom Snyder’s book, yet. She said no, but, told me Christine was very abusive to her daughter, Drew, Mark’s favorite niece. Last Christmas our niece, Shannon Rosamond. called me, and was crying. She had just read a movie script about her mother.

“Why are they saying all these awful things about my mother – that are not true!”

Mark’s email is another smokescreen to hide the truth – he did take sides – and probably took Garth Benton’s side during the awful divorce where the Benton’s said awful things about each other. Snyder’s bio says Christine was accusing all father’s of incesting their daughters. Did Vicki Presco show Mark the rough draft of our sister’s autobiography – that was disappeared? Here are the creative people in our family who were rendered powerless, so Jacci and Stacey Pierrot could own our family legacy.

Christine. Shannon. John.

Mark told me on the phone, the last time we talked, that he had read the rough draft of ‘When You Close Your Eyes’. I was blown away.

“Why did you get to read it? Why did you allow the lie – that some family members looted Christine’s house after the funeral? You were there!”

My latest therapist was confounded as to why this lie was told. I told her it was invented in order to STOP family biographies from being written – by family members! Did executor, Sydney Morris of the Buck law firm, hear of the looting – before he approved of the sale to Pierrot? Did Sydney read of the looting – afterwards? If so, did he wonder about no one attempting to RECOVER stolen property? I am composing a legal paper to address these matters. My brother is – a great Villain! That he tries to depict me as the chief family abuser – while employing my child – is as dastardly a act of back-stabbing one will read in literature. Mark…..if you are still alive….you are in my book!

Just woke from my old man nap – with another brilliant idea! My muse loves me when I nap. How about a musical ‘Pynchon and Fleming’ ? After another unsuccessful coup, neo-Confederate and neo-Nazi expatriates take over Jamaica and outlaw all their music. Mark Presco invents Nazi Jazz, that has accordion players in it. Fleming and Pynchon found a underground Jazz band that plays in the jungle. This is like Casablanca. It does not matter that Fleming is dead – after what Broccoli put us through.

The black man who has his arm around me is Sharema, whose parents wrote the biography of Fela that was sold to folks who made a Broadway musical out of it. The key to understanding Mark’s letter is…..


WHOA! Just googled Nazi Jazz Band! My muse must help Wikipedia. I struck gold. Better slap a copyright on my idea – and Mark’s email! I found Charlie and his orchestra! I also spew abusive-speak when A NEO-NAZI TAKES OVER THE ARTISTIC LEGACY I BEGAN AT TWELVE.

A month before my daughter came into my life in 2000, Mark asked me to include some of his essay in my autobiography that I titled ‘San Sebastian Avenue’. I was appalled. Aunt Lillian had given me an interview, then tells me Tom Snyder is coming to her home to get her story. Mark knows I got a copyright infringement case – and is making the case My Family Story will abuse everyone of us! Snyder’s evil book of lies renders Rosamond a vile out of control drunk and insane person – like her mother. Vic is accused of being a pedophile! I caused my best friend – to commit suicide!

No flies on Mark, who I believe is The Disgruntled Puppet Master – who hates to pay taxes! He had nothing good to say about our famous sister – or me! Neither did Tom Snyder – which blew all Rosamond’s female fans – and thus Tom’s book was a flop. I hold Buck and Morris responsible – and Mark – because he was the head of the family. He knew Garth was going after his niece Shannon who battled him in court. The book was not supposed to be about The Presco Family. It was supposed to be about a popular woman artist. Did Mark give Tom negative feedback after he read his draft? Mark demanded I sign the Non-Disclosure Agreement Ghost Writer Snyder sent me in order to prevent his RIVAL writer from writing about HIS sister – and family!

“The crap you have written recently is even worse than the garbage
that Tom Snyder wrote. I did not contribute to Tom’s book because I
couldn’t think of anything positive to say about Christine
. Rather than airing out the
families dirty laundry in public I opted to say nothing. This was even
before I read the proof and saw how negative the story was and how he
harped on his diagnosis of bipolar disorder.

I will never be on your side for two reasons. The first is that I
don’t want there to be sides. I don’t want to see the family split into two
warring camps
. If you insist on dividing the family then you will go
it alone.”

Charlie and his Orchestra – Wikipedia

During the 1930s there was a great demand in Germany for jazz music, especially swing (which included elements of the big band sound). However, such African and American influences were viewed as counter to goals of German racial purity; by 1935 they were outlawed, and the Nazis informally labeled it as Negermusik. An underground jazz scene, however, persisted in Berlin. Here bandleader Lutz Templin and drummer Fritz Brocksieper brought together key swing figures of the late 1930s, including singer Karl Schwedler (“Charlie”), clarinetist Kurt Abraham and trombone player Willy Berking. They escaped notice by pasting pro-German lyrics over sheet music and using instruments like harpsichords for boogie-woogie rhythms.[1]

Goebbels recognized that both art and propaganda were meant to bring about a spiritual mobilization in its audience, and was well aware of the popularity of swing and big band music in Allied countries. He gave permission to bring Berlin’s best jazz musicians into the music-propaganda program, and in 1940 Charlie and his Orchestra was born.

As an official Reichsministerium band, the group made over 90 recordings between March 1941 and February 1943. Arrangements were by Templin, Willy Berking and Franz Mück, with lyrics written by the Propagandaministerium. Schwedler was permitted to travel to neutral and occupied countries to collect jazz and dance music, which helped the band and propaganda ministry to produce more recordings. Outside their “official” duties, many members of the band supplemented their income by playing in underground venues.

By 1943, bombardment by Allied planes took a toll on German broadcast operations; the studio, employees and musicians were moved to southern Germany to perform on the Reichssender Stuttgart radio station. Even when the city finally came under attack the band played jazz hits live on international shortwave radio, as German domestic stations played the “cuckoo” air-raid warning.[1]

After the war the musicians reorganized under Fritz Brocksieper with the name Freddie Brocksieper, but were still recognized as “Goebbels’ band”. They played at US Armed Forces clubs in Stuttgart and Ludwigsburg.[1] Conductor Lutz Templin became one of the founders of the ARD broadcast network. Schwedler (in varying accounts) either emigrated to the US in 1960, or became a businessman who retired at Tegernsee.[1]


The purposes of the band were to encourage German sympathies, draw attention to World War II Allied losses, convince listeners that Britain was a pawn for American (and Jewish) interests and convey German dictator Adolf Hitler‘s messages in an entertaining form. The songs stressed how badly the war was going for the target audience, and how it would be only a matter of time until they would be defeated.

American swing and popular British songs were initially performed true to the originals until the second or third stanza, when pro-German lyrics and monologues would be introduced. For example, in the Walter Donaldson hit “You’re Driving Me Crazy” Schwedler croons about the confusion of new love; in the third stanza, he continues: “Here is Winston Churchill’s latest tear-jerker: Yes, the Germans are driving me crazy / I thought I had brains / But they shot down my planes…”. Later, the entire lyric would be modified (clearly based on the original). The band also recorded (unaltered) cover versions of popular songs.

“The crap you have written recently is even worse than the garbage
that Tom Snyder wrote. I did not contribute to Tom’s book because I
couldn’t think of anything positive to say about Christine. Rather than airing out the
families dirty laundry in public I opted to say nothing. This was even
before I read the proof and saw how negative the story was and how he
harped on his diagnosis of bipolar disorder. But your writing is even worse,
intentionally denigrating everyone in your family. Once again the
verbal abuse that you heap upon your family is unacceptable. You will never
get such trash published, just as Tom’s garbage is not selling.

It was pathetic to read how you consider yourself to be an innocent
victim in regards to your alienation from your daughter. I can guess what
happened even though I was never involved. You got your feeling hurt so you
lashed out at Patrice with everything you had. You said the most vile and
hurtful things you could think of because you wanted her to hurt as much as
you were hurting. You wanted her to know that you believe she did it on
purpose, so you accused her of conspiring against you. This justifies in your
mind your hostile attack. I believe this is what happened because I have seen
you do it a thousand times. You have driven Patrice and Heather away from
you in the same way you have driven every member of your family away from
you. You are no innocent scapegoat in this. You are the major family abuser.
As bad as Vic or Rosemary ever were.

You assert that nobody cares about your feelings. That is not it at
all. Everyone is subjected to the same insults and rejections that you have
experienced. It is your hypersensitivity that causes you to feel them
more intensely and then to respond in an inappropriate manner. When you
respond with you hyper verbal abuse and hostile attacks it simply drives
people away. You believe that when you tell people how unhappy you are with
them in this fashion they will respond positively to you. They will not. They
will immediately reject you. They have rejected you, for this and this

You like to tout your recovery program. I have been to AA and
rejected it. I didn’t need them to avoid alcohol for 25 years. So I know the first
step in their recovery is to admit that you have a problem. You are required
to stand up and state that you are an alcoholic at every meeting
regardless of how long you have been sober. However, you will not even admit that
you are a verbal abuser. You have stated in your email that you will never
admit that you were wrong. As long as you refuse to admit you have a
problem there is little hope for you.

I will never be on your side for two reasons. The first is that I
don’t want there to be sides. I don’t want to see the family split into two
warring camps. If you insist on dividing the family then you will go
it alone. The second is I will never be a party to your verbal abuse,
either of the family or anyone else. As long as you continue your hostile
attacks I will not support you. I suggest you show this email to the therapist
you like so much and see what he says.

Once again you have attacked Lillian and me in you writings. You have
broken your promise to me. Once again you owe us an apology. I will no longer
tolerate your verbal abuse and your hostility. If I do not get a
profuse apology from you I will have nothing more to do with you – ever. You
can sit in your lonely room hating every member of your family and rot.
