ABOUT

Seeking Male/Female
Bass : Drums : Keys : Throat

Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. Saw early Devo in 1976; SOLD!! Became friends at age 16 to local artists Pere Ubu, Human Switchboard and (a bit later) Doug Gillard of Children's Crusade, Death of Samantha, Nada Surf and Guided by Voices fame. Was an early member of Home and Garden, a Pere Ubu spin-off. At present need Bass, Drum, Key and Throat to get up and running; HELP.

"Blacksheep", "Remedy" and "Coven" were a workshed/sketch project with Sirena (Throat) and myself (Everything Else) called Trauma Doll, active 12/17 through 09/18. We made a film that she wrote/produced that was accepted by the TacomaFilmFestival Fall 2018 and got critical acclaim (NO ROOM). Songwise, I would come up with music and we exchanged said music and vocals through cell phone files - thus the tinny sound - but were unable to find Bass/Drum/Keys this past year, so she unfortunately had to withdraw, putting her time and effort into a more viable visual and visceral project, soundtracking an ongoing UK series depicting the Germany and the UK during the decadent 20s and 30s.....and just like that, I am alone again.

In any case, anyone wishing to collab/contribute, none of these arrangements are cut in stone, so Step Forward: Time is NOT on our side.
