LOWELL GEORGE ON VOCALS IN THIS GTO'S DEMO RECORDING


The YouTube info said :
Frank Zappa gave this record to my Aunt, Miss Christine of the GTOS. Its a rare demo version of one of the songs from the GTOS album Mercy's Tune (I have a Paint Brush in my Hand to Color a Triangle) before Mercy sang it with the full band that Zappa used for the song. Lowell George sang this rare demo.
Written by Miss Mercy. This is a song about a lovers triangle which involves Brian Jones, Bernardo B.T.O and Miss Mercy.
This demo 45 rpm record came from my Aunts personal record collection. Same song on both sides.

Tarrytown Music Hall in Tarrytown, NY
March 12, 2020



IMPERIAL TRIUMPHANT - ALPHAVILLE


Imperial Triumphant added their version of The Residents' 'Happy Home' to their brand-new "Alphaville" album.
Produced by Trey Spruance.
Out on CD and in a couple of different vinyl versions.



PHLOX - KERI

  • phlox: keri
        (2017, cd, estonia, mkdk records)
Estonian prog rock / fusion band Phlox released their "Keri" album in 2017. Both on CD and on vinyl.
Sax and violin playing melody lines unisono, a powerful rhythm section, a bit of chaos, and a lot of madness.
This is good.
Let me rephrase that. This is excellent.



SUNDAYS & CEBELLE - GYPSY HOUSE

  • sundays & cybele: gypsy house
        (2015, lp, japan, guru guru brain)
Japanese psychedelic rock band Sundays & Cybele released "Gypsy House" in 2015.
Released on the Guru Guru Brain record label, the album got issued in different editions.

A very pleasant surprise.
Jimi Hendrix isn't far away.
I like it a lot.



YONIC SOUTH - PUNK FUNK


Mezz Gacano (guitar), Luca La Russa (bass) and Guillo Scavuzzo (drums) are Yonic South.
They recorded this album on June 23, 2020. It included their version of FZ’s ‘Peaches En Regalia’.

Also, Mike is working on his new solo album but he did find the time to share this nice little video :


A few weeks ago, Marc Bonilla and I made a video of Ravel’s “Prelude” from “Le Tombeau De Couperin.” It’s an acoustic guitar arrangement we came up with in the early ‘90s for Marc’s American Matador album, but at the behest of his label, Marc played both parts on the record. Now, our duet version can be heard! And seen!
