By Matthew Caulfield

Here's what light the copyright registration (as an unpublished tune, by the way) sheds on Bullshevicki. The title, exactly as registered, is "Bull-sheviki; wild rushin' one step." Composer is given as Ivan Kenbrockovitch; arranged by William C. Polla (violin). The tune was registered March 20, 1919, by Kendis, Brockman Music Company, New York. This is obviously the explanation of "Kenbrockovitch".

[ I asked Matthew and Frank Himpsl also about the pseudonym "Kenbrovin".
[ Matthew replied: "'"Kenbrovin' is made up from the first three letters
[ of the last names of the 3 composers, Kendis, Brockman, and Vincent."
[ Ergo, "Kenbrockovitch" = "Kenbrovin", a skilled writing team! --Robbie
