DESIGNED TO STIMULATE THE PRIMITIVE, REPTILIAN PART OF YOUR BRAIN!


HISTORY...IN THE '90s I PERFORMED IN NOISY BANDS IN NORTH CAROLINA AND ILLINOIS (SHARKING TEETH, JUMPKNUCKLE). THOSE BANDS WERE COMPARED TO THE JESUS LIZARD AND THE FALL. BUT I ALSO STOLE FROM PRINCE, THE BIRTHDAY PARTY, AND LOVE AND ROCKETS. (I STILL HAVE SOME OF OUR CDs IF ANYONE OUT THERE IS INTERESTED.)

IN 2000 I MOVED TO OAKLAND, THEN SAN FRANCISCO. I STARTED THIS PROJECT HERE INSPIRED BY MY TRUE MENTORS: '40s FILM NOIR, '50s B-MOVIES, '60s GIRL-GROUPS, '80s GOTH, AND OTHERS WHO HAVE TWISTED FEAR, DESIRE, AND EXASPERATED RELEASE INTO ART THAT IS FRESH AND PRIMITIVE...

IN 2001-2002, I PERFORMED IN KAREN PENUELOS' GLORIOUS CIRCUS PROBOSCIS, WITH 2 SUCCESSFUL RUNS IN BERKELEY AND SAN FRANCISCO. 3 OF MY SONGS WERE FEATURED, AND WERE SOLD AT PERFORMANCES AS THE TUNNEL OF LOVE EP. IN 2003, I PUT OUT 2AM IN THE TUNNEL OF LOVE, AND THEN IN 2004, "UNDERNEATH ARE PHANTOMS". I'VE ALSO BEEN WORKING ON A TOP-SECRET PROJECT WITH TALENTED SAN FRANCISCO SONGWRITER ADRIAN RICHTER...FOR T.O.L. ACTIVITIES 2005+, SEE THE NEWS.

OK THAT'S ALL FOR NOW, HOPE YOU ENJOY THE NOISES
