Jezebel, 1990 - 2007

OOIOO from Japan played last Friday at Chop Suey, the place was packed - it was one of only a handful of North American shows - and yeah, it was great... there were two kick ass drummers at the back in the shadows driving some tight rhythmic string playing and an intriguing array of vocals.

The bottom shots are a blue Brad from Master Musicians of Bukkake and a few shots spliced of Climax Golden Twins salvaged from a darker stage that included Kinski for a total of 13 players (maybe 14)... I got there a little late for the full effect, but when I arrived the force of it literally knocked me back a ways, but really it was just a gentle wave of dark titanic proportions,,,,

In Memory, Charles Gocher, 1952 - 2007

"...Listen to his song. Let me leave you with one last thought: If his idea seems too

from Charles Gocher Sr. by Charles Gocher Jr.
Dante's Disneyland Inferno, Sun City Girls.

Many of Charles' friends gathered in remembrance and to celebrate
the life and free soul of Gocher. It was a great party, as he'd want it...
