Keyboardplayer for British band The Damned, Monty Oxymoron
recorded his first solo album in 2005. The album includes
'Zappafrank' an Oxymoron composition on which he says:
"With much trepadation on the behalf of the reviewer the
above-named track starts... it's very different from the
preceeding tracks as the title indicates. Occasional weird timings
with jazzy keyboard meanderings. Sounds like there's hordes of
mice running around on the keyboards. Zappa fans will love it.
Unfortunately, I'm not too satisfied with this album. The first
couple of songs that I listened to it, I thought of it as very
experimental material. It sounded like fragments of songs,
skipping from one track into another... It only took me a couple
of minutes to realise that the disc was full of errors, and that
it was indeed doing some foreward skipping.
I solved it by burning the damaged disc to another CDR (on very
low speed). That did the trick, and afterwards, I could enjoy the
album the way it was intended.
It's an OK album, (british psychelic stuff) and the 'Frankzappa'
track does sound quite mother-esque, but it just skipped one time
too often during my first listening...
another little collectable item...

SPECIAL TO THE
Musician Adrian Belew
Will the real Adrian Belew please warm up?
guitarist, songwriter and now painter will be coming to town with his
self-proclaimed power trio.
"We're just doing four warm-up dates, St. Louis being one of
them," Belew says.
Then the band will pack up its instruments and head overseas. After a
lengthy tour of Europe and Australia, they'll return - revved up - to
America: "I want to bring the power trio back to the States."
Belew means that in
more ways than one. From the beginning, the musician whose first
instrument was the drums has been a self-starter and innovator. And his
whimsy-prone ambition has always stayed a step ahead of his fans'
It's a journey that spans his work with Frank Zappa; his role in reshaping
(along with Robert Fripp) King Crimson from a '70s prog-rock artifact to a
blueprint for guitar-based avant-garde music; and his Beatles-style pop
experiments, alone and with the Bears. These days,
Belew is exploring the live possibilities of the rock trio.
He's divided his recent studio work into three albums to show the
different sides of himself. Last year's "Side
One" combined pop songs such as "Ampersand" with the sort
of weirder stuff you'd expect from a musician who doesn't so much
caress his guitar as argue with it. "'Side Two' is a
totally different kind of music," Belew says. "It has
synthesizers and drum machines - almost like my own version of DJ
music." The upcoming "Side
Three," though, will be a feast of leftovers. "It's a lot of
different material that didn't really fit in the other categories,"
he says. But Belew is not easy
to categorize. He's that rare breed of musician who, like Tom Verlaine and
Nils Lofgren, is renowned for his guitar chops but can write a mean song.
In particular, he has mixed and matched genres, from pop-rock to
avant-garde, with ease - and now an easel. "I think these
days my fans have realized that I multitask," Belew says. "I
like to do a lot of different things." What some fans may not
realize is that for the past couple of years, he's been mastering a new
kind of task: painting. Examples of Belew's
work, which is decidedly abstract and menacing, can be found on the front
of his recent CDs. "My painting is
very much like my music, in that I'm always discovering," says Belew,
who's never had a guitar lesson. "I don't know in technical terms how
to do something, or what I'm doing. I just discover things. That's the
same way I've approached guitar all my life." In the long arc of his
career, Belew has gone from drummer's hide to artist's canvas. But deep
down, he's all about the music. "What I'm doing
now is warming up my power trio for Europe and Australia," he says.
"I think the date at Blueberry Hill will be a really good one in the
sense that we're all anxious to play again. Even though it's a warm-up for
Italy, we're going to play our hearts out."

Howard Kaylan --
Lead Singer of the Turtles, Mothers of Invention, Flo and Eddie --
Releases First Solo Album
Recorded in Billy
Bob Thornton's studio in Beverly Hills, and featuring the Oscar winner on
guest vocals, "Dust Bunnies" is an album of little-known gems
from the sixties and beyond sung by one of the quintisential rock voices,
(PRWEB)March 21, 2006 -- Dust Bunnies is the first solo album to come from
Howard Kaylan, the lead singer of the Turtles, Flo and Eddie and Frank
Zappa's Mothers of Invention. The songs were hand-picked by Kaylan from
years of seldom-heard B-sides and album cuts recorded by many of his
favorite artists and supplemented by new arrangements of more familiar
pieces and a rock original or two.
Recorded last year
in Billy Bob Thornton's home studio in Beverly Hills, Dust Bunnies
features Mr. Thornton on its finale cut, "Music." As the Turtles
continue to tour America and the world, Dust Bunnies is the only NEW
project to be untaken by a member of that now-legendary band. And Kaylan's
vocals, famous for Happy Together as well as projects with Bruce
Springsteen, The Ramones, John Lennon and many more can be heard, once
again, singing pop-rock the way that it was meant to be.
A Brief Biography
Howard Kaylan was born in New York City on June 22, 1947 and moved with
his parents to Los Angeles before his tenth birthday. It was at
Westchester High School where he met the members of the band soon to be
named The Turtles. Their first hit, Bob Dylan's "It Ain't Me
Babe" climbed into the national top ten six months after Howard
graduated from Westchester High and the trip has never stopped. Many more
hits followed, "You Baby", "Happy Together", She'd
Rather Be With Me", "You Showed Me" and
"Elenore," which Howard wrote, were among the band's chart
In 1970, the Turtles became the first rock band to ever do a command
performance at the White House.
Later that year, the Turtles broke up and Howard, along with partner Mark
Volman, joined Frank Zappa's Mothers of Invention where he starred in
Zappa's film "200 Motels" and sang lead on "Live at the
Fillmore East", "Just Another Band From L.A." and others.
In 1970, Kaylan and his partner began to assert themselves as background
singers on hit records and albums by T. Rex, John Lennon, Bruce
Springsteen, Duran Duran, Alice Cooper, Blondie and many more.
Flo and Eddie, Mark and Howard's alter egos released five albums before
the duo went into writing all the music for the animated series
"Strawberry Shortcake" and "The Care Bears."
Then the duo tackled radio appearing daily on NYC's K-Rock Radio following
Howard Stern's show. Kaylan has also acted in the films "Get
Crazy", "Stephen King's Riding The Bullet", and last year,
wrote the full-length motion picture "My Dinner With Jimi", a
huge festival favorite that will be released in theaters in 2006 from
Dust Bunnies is his first solo album.

I know, it has been over a week, but I've been reading an interesting
book, and I went to two Wrong Object gigs...
Still, that doesn't mean that nothing is happening.
I even had two Don Preston gigs scheduled, but as the road to Rotterdam
was one big traffic jam, I had to let these pass... Pity...
I went to see the Wrong Oject in concert twice this week. The first
time in Baarle Nassau, NL, and the second time in St.Jozef Rijkevorsel,
over here in Belgium. The Baarle Nassau gig was good. Especially if you
consider that the band hadn't reheased in about three months.
The St.Jozef gig was excellent. Better sound, tight playing and everyone
in great shape.
Both concerts had fine setlists including a lot of Zappa material and
Elton Dean's 'Seven for Lee'.
The next couple of weeks, the band will be working on a recording that
should become their first album. Keep your eyes open for that one.
The day before yesterday I received a DVDR with the recording of the
Rockpalast / Jazzline broadcast of last year's Soft
Machine concert at the Leverkusener Jazztage.
I added an entry for Soft Machine to the United Mutations archives,
including their discography. (thanks to Danny Mathys)

Guitar god, comedic iconoclast, avant-garde composer and musical

A little while ago, I received the following message from Henrietta
father, Freddy Bannister, promoted the Knebworth festivals between
1974-1979 including the 1978 Knebworth festival with Frank Zappa and
also the 1975 Knebworth festival with Captain Beefheart. We have
recently produced a “1978 Frank Zappa commemorative set.
ZAPPA AT KNEBWORTH COMMEMORATIVE SET
1978 Knebworth Frank Zappa commemorative set has been produced in a
limited edition of only 200 and includes the following:
flyers and the ticket from 1978 Frank Zappa Knebworth
original 1978 Frank Zappa Knebworth pass, with a letter of
photos of the 1978 Knebworth festival
page book on the behind the scenes hassles of promoting the Knebworth
festival and also working as Frank Zappa's European representative in
the seventies, including his ill-fated 1971 tour.
a special gift with the set: four CDs and a DVD live from Knebworth
four CDs include:
Knebworth Frank Zappa 1CD
Knebworth Captain Beefheart 1CD
Knebworth The Tubes 1CD
Knebworth Peter Gabriel ! CD
50 mins DVD of various Knebworth festivals between 1974 - 1979,
including The Rolling Stones, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Led Zeppelin and
enclosed in the same very attractive turquoise and silver
received the box last week, and I have to admit that it looks great.
Memorabilia afficianados will be very happy with the program booklet, the
pass and the photographs, whereas melomaniacs will be impressed by the
plus threehundred page book by Freddy Bannister.
Must Be A Better Way", subtitled "The Story of The Bath and
Knebworth Rock Festivals 1969 - 1979", gives an impressive insight of
what promoting these festivals was all about. Besides that, the book also
gives numerous facts and data, as well as very entertaining anecdotes on
the various bands and musicians that Freddy Bannister encountered.
the book focusses on the Bath and Knebworth festivals, Bannister also
talks about the various tours he promoted: the 1971 Mothers tour with the
Montreux fire and the Rainbow Theatre incident, Beefheart's european 1972
tour, a Flo & Eddie tour, Zappa's Grand Wazoo tour, and Zappa's 1973
& 1978 tours.
book is very well-written and is fun to read (now you know why there
haven't been any new posts the last couple of days...). If you want to
know more about the time that Aynsley Dunbar's hair caught fire, about the
Tommy Mars bust, Herb Cohen's little naps or even about Jimmy Carl Black's
english daughter, this book is a must.
can only imagine what else is floating around in Freddy Banister's
archives or memory...

This performance has taken
an interesting turn -- in the early part of this week I wrote two new jazz rock
type pieces for an eleven piece group (mostly drawn from the ranks of the
Metropole). We recorded the pieces on Tuesday. They're called "Chee"
and "Ack" and along with two improvisations, will comprise the first
part of the performance this Sunday. After intermission we'll perform the
complete "Universe" suite as it appears on album (including five
movements which haven't been performed live yet). Today was the final day of
rehearsal and the music is very happening. Please come to this show if you can.

Describing the album is a bit harder. The FFW sound a bit like a
death-metal version of Rage Against The Machine. There's a couple
of nice tracks on the album, and the part where the guitar player

(courtesy of my friend Alyson) I received a copy of a full-page newspaper

The story was also picked up by several on-line progressive rock sites,

Now, some live dates:
Warren Cuccurullo @ The Viper Room - 11:30 pm
Guitarist Warren Cuccurullo, formerly of Frank Zappa's band (Joe's
Garage-era), Missing Persons, and Duran Duran will be performing on
March 1st with his ImAgiNEoRKeStRa which will also include former Zappa
bandmates including superstar drummer Terry Bozzio (!), Peter Wolf, and a
host of other people including myself. The set list needs to remain
a surprise, but it's going to be a very fun (and very bizarre) show!
OppyArt @ The Bohemian Shindig - 8pm - 1am
The first ever gallery featuring my artwork will be at the sophomore
installment of the Acoustic Playhouse's Bohemian Shindig. I will be
displaying a few of my paintings and drawings at this event alongside some
of my favorite local painters including T.J. Moore (who painted the cover
of "Beyond the Foggy Highway") and Lisa Bloodgood.
It's been a while since we performed, but that's mostly because I've been
in the shed working on a lot of new music which we will be debuting at
this show, including "That You Didn't Say Yesterday," selections
from "The Porpentine," and a new song about how much fun it
isn't to try to date girls in Los Angeles called "Brenda, You're a
Coward." It's going to be a really good time and it would mean
a lot to me personally to see you there.
Okay, I can't stand being away from "The Brightly Shining Sea" anymore.
So it's back to the piano with me. Music is the best.
Yep, brand-new and out of Japan.
I haven't heard it yet, but I do have an audience recording of
this concert and that sounds great.
It features Bianco on vocals; a superb version of 'You didn't try
to call me".

you ask? Well, pretty much everything is new. If you saw the Cafe 9 or

the May shows are very different from the March shows. And with that,
here's the poop on the upcoming dates:

Jon - (original "project/object" guitarist [diff. band]) my
buddy Jon Kiebon..had a band called PROJECT.OBJECT a long time ago. He
very graciously let us use the name when the confusion ensued over a
decade ago. Check out his nutty, wonderful, Zappa-influenced world at http://www.jaminjon.com
- gives away music all year!!! Every day another track!! check out
www.lovetester.net -- this is the site of former project/object
punters Rick Bartow, Jeff "boxy" Breedlove, and Wes Paich -
they are giving away A SONG EVERY DAY!! for the entire 2006.. you're
about 60 songs down, so catch up!!
- critical of all sides i USUALLY leave overt political stuff off this
list -- if you would like more political commentary and fwds
(strangely, some of you do!!) then pls email me and i will put you on
a separate list for rational discussion of current insanity and lies
pouring out of the white house, even worse ones than what poured out
of the Intern-cuddling, pot inhaling Clinton white house.
mediamatters.org is great , as is www.factcheck.org -- for debunking
bias on both sides of the corporate oiligarchy/moneypit. Cheers, mates
Details for PO tour coming soon.... thanks for reading this far.
