Henry the Cow

I caught Fred Frith live at Trinosophes last Saturday night. He was brilliant. Better than John Cage with a guitar. Having reserved seats really helped, also ours were closer to the front.


No, he doesn’t look like this anymore.

We’ll see how it goes! God I love this flier.

FUNDBERAZOAR

Another year, another fundraiser, another 2.5 hours of me feebly talking. Thanks to all who called and pledged.

I suppose a schtick would do well, but I’ve never been one for stunt-type schticks. Maybe I should rediscover my theremin impressions again…

It has been a while since I’ve had the occasion to do a Halloween show on Halloween. Yeah, I know…like you’ll never hear creepy bedtime drones on my show at any other time.

Nomming Its Own Intestines

Nice long jazz tracks I was planning to play anyway, but fit well with my having to train another padewan DJ. Ah, the cycle of life.

It’s been a hot summer. I’ve been abysmal with keeping these posts up to date. Previous shows will follow soon. I found a Wire Tapper CD that kind of ruled.  This week’s show:

Soulstice Poultice

When isn’t it mousse?

“Yukkuri itte kudasai!”

Last week’s show was an all out Japanese weirdfest. I like to do these at least once a year, as it gives me an opportunity to rediscover everything I love about crazy Japanese music. I need to crank up this stuff more often.
