Freaks Night Out (7 Month Aftermath)

This was by far the craziest gig we ever pulled off. If Ray Dennis Steckler directed a remake of The Manchurian Candidate starring KISS, it still would have been way off base. I think it also marks the 3rd gig in 25 years I’ve known Rich Stiehm’s amp to literally blow up. We had a theremin and Alan’s JFK mask had a custom blood pump through a head wound = classy.

All I can say is: look at these pics and watch the videos located here and here. The “pro” one was edited by Rich Stiehm and stars the lovely La Maia. There’s also a couple of good pre-production (costumes) shots.

Pretty much one of the best nights of my life! I wish every gig was like this.

The Incredibly Strange Surf Band Who Stopped Living And Became Mixed-Up Sleestaks

Here is the full account of all that transpired on Saturday June 18th 2011 at the Mermaid Ball. I can comfortably admit it was the most surreal gig of my life. I’ll let the pictures and audio tell the story. You can read about it in Time Out New York by clicking here but I prefer the convoluted dream-state it exists in now. Click here for full audio (a really special recording) and click here to see Rich’s psychedelic video for “The Wedge”.

We played with Labretta Suede and The Motel 6.

Moto Graphics: Part 01

Here’s that series of quickie flyers from 2009-10 featuring various leading ladies. It goes:

Carol Lynley/Faye Dunaway/Leslie Caron
Monica Bellucci/Brigitte Bardot/Sharon Tate/Soledad Miranda

The MB is the weakest while the ST is the best flyer not necessarily the best gig. Trivia: The BB was actually canceled due to a freak blizzard and rescheduled at Santos Party House. Video of that can be seen here and an Alphabet Lounge show here.
