ABOUT

I grew up in the garage band era: Louie louie, Gloria, Little Latin Lupe Lou, Hanky Panky, You Really Got Me - and then graduated into a cutting edge psychedelic stage (several bands) playing mutant Vanilla Fudge, Stones, Beatles, Blues Magoo, Cream, Led Zepplin, Hendrix, and much more before crotch rock and beer took over the scene in the 70s and Todd Rungren felt moved put out his "Death of Rock'n'Roll song (Initiation LP) to mark the occasion. Love fusion jazz, all kinds of blues, tenchnotrance, and can program (and own) synths, sequencers, samplers, loopers, and various effect modules. I'm still over the edge and am seeking open mnded musician friends to push the envelope to the extreme. I've thrown over 100 festivals. You can contact me at aeonarc

Influences

Plus the above mentioned music, I love ragas, tribal drum circles, chanting, drones, oms, and all magickal and spiritual expressions of the ONE. Mahavishnu Orchestra came close. So did a band I played in 10 yeras ago called the Octave Doctors. I learned to jam playing the blues in suburban basements. I saw King Crimson, Pink Floyd, Doctor John (the Night Tripper), Manfred Mann's Solar Fire Band, Iron Butterfly. MC5, Iggy, and much more in the "old days" when creativity was the rule rather than the exception. It is time to get back to those creative roots and blow a new whole from the crumbling order. Anyone game? Music is the healing force of the universe. A band is a magical circle intent on influencing the world.
