FAST 'N' BULBOUS update 2009 01 23

Jan 2009 sees the release of Fast 'N' Bulbous long-awaited second Cuneiform CD, Waxed Oop (an impetuous stream bubbled up). A strong departure from their first CD, Waxed Oop ranges from Gary Lucas’ solo National Steel guitar version of “Sure ‘Nuff ‘N’ Yes I Do,” to a full band arrangement of Don van Vliet’s solo sea chantey, “Well.” It also includes the first FnB delving into “Lick My Decals Off, Baby,” and features a bonus track with guest vocalist Robyn Hitchcock.

Just prior to the recording, they did a tribute concert to Captain Beefheart at New York’s Knitting Factory, curated by Gary Lucas, which featured little-known video clips and recordings, and readings and reminiscences by many special guests, including Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo, Suicide's Alan Vega, Kurt Loder, and David Lynch (via video).

You can watch a podcast of highlights from the show at:
You can also watch a clip on YouTube, of Gary and Robyn performing “Sure ‘Nuff ‘N’ Yes I Do” at the same event.

They will be touring in 2009 to support the new CD (visit website/myspace page for updates)
