Some familiar suspects at Galapagos tonight:

DR. MOM is the new joint venture between actress/writer/performer Ann Magnuson, drummer Roger Murdock, guitarist Dave Rick and bassist Stuart Popejoy. Ann and Dave were in Bongwater together, Dave and Rog were in King Missile together. Word is that Stuart was discovered in Albuquerque, NM in a dumpster with his passport and a bass guitar....hmmph, anyway, DR. MOM plan on performing a bunch of recalibrated Bongwater tunes, amusing covers and perhaps a few embryonic pieces foretelling possible continued collaboration. Good luck!

Hey, Bill! "6.4=Make Out" is being reissued! (Brian's probably already heard this.) Neil Strauss's Times story on the great Gary Wilson is on my miscellaneous page. Here's a choice tidbit:

"On Saturday night, I arrived at Mr. Wilson's house to conduct his first interview for publication since the late 1970's. For the last 17 years, it seems, Mr. Wilson, 48, has played keyboards in a lounge act whose members and audience are not familiar with his original music. (Mr. Wilson's father was a jazz bassist who often played hotel lounges.) At midnight he reports to a pornography bookstore and peep show, where he works behind two layers of bullet-proof glass, handling cash and dispensing tokens."

Wilson's LP is amazing; I can't wait to pick it up on CD.
