Schizowave (Chicago Russian trip hop/rock cabaret compared to Dresden Dolls, Tom Waits, Diamanda Galas, Lyida Lunch and Nina Hagen) is heading to Wisconsin, and is looking to play clubs/parties around Madison, Milwaukee or Rockford on October 14 or Oct 16.

If you know of an opening at a club, have the magic powers of creating one, or want us to play at your party, please leave me a comment!!

Also, Schizowave is touring with an amazing flamenco/jazz guitarist from Chicago Josef Levitis who is avaiable for gigs either as a solo act or with a band.

I'm not very knowledgeable about music; hopefully someone on here can help out.

I have a copy of the Seven Days of Samsara CD with the fence-wire-metal-whatever case. I think the album is called "A Reason to Sing." It's in good condition. A friend of mine wants to buy it, and I don't mind selling it, but I don't know what it's worth. I don't think he would rip me off on purpose, but I just want to make sure it isn't worth a crapton of money to some collector. It's 642/1000 if anyone cares.

Any guesses on what a reasonable price would be for this?

Hey All

I moving to Milwaukee for the summer. I go to school in Madison, but employment options are Mc Donalds or cleaning monkey shit out of cages. Which is worse, its hard to say...but if I had to choose I'll take the health risks over "Would ya like fries with that"?

Anyway, I can't wait to rock out in a real city this summer.

<3 See you at Oakland Gyros/Shuttle/Webbs after bartime <3

The time my Date punched El Duce in the mouth, knocking him out cold. [24 Jul 2003|01:39pm]

[ mood | For my new friend Amy ]

Several years ago, when the great El Duce was still with us, a few friends, a date, and I went to see the Mentors play at a local club. Long before the show had started El Duce had begun terrorizing the women in the audience with a really, really enormous rubber phallus, running up to them and waving it in their faces, or rubbing it on them, or whatever horror his tiny mind could come up with. A primitive sociology had developed in the club by this time in which small groups of unattached women would huddle for protection around any group of 2 or 3 men, protection that was usually not forthcoming. El Duce would pop up and the women would run squealing to another group of men. It was the law of the jungle.

At one point El Duce singled out my date for the evening, a very nice (well she was at a Mentors show, so she couldn't have been all that nice), pretty, ladylike, slender, fairly demure (again, she's at a Mentor's show) college student I'd been hanging out with for a couple weeks, and came over to make some sort of leering remark. When we both started laughing, he turned around and waddled off. Then, like half an hour later, we're standing at the bar and he proceeds to walk up to us and start apologizing for his behaviour, very sincerely apologizing. He became frankly maudlin at one point, calling himself a sick puppy and begging us not to pay any attention to him. At this point I'm actually reassuring El Duce that it was OK, we'd gotten a kick out of his comments, and we were fans. After making him feel a little better about himself (what the fuck?) he left to do the show and we went to watch.

After a rousing show by the band, my date and I are sitting on a table relaxing while people mill around. El Duce comes lurching towards us, fast, and far from being friendly or contrite, this time his hand rockets straight up my poor date's skirt. For a second we're both too shocked to react, his hand working the area between her legs like an enraged badger. I jump up, grab his shoulder, and lift my cane, which I carried for just such contingencies, to smack his fat little head. It turns out that the specific combination of heroin, booze, beer, goofballs, benzo's that he's soaked up makes him inhumanly strong, at least for a couple seconds, and he grabs my cane-arm and holds it immobile in his tiny, vice-like paw, all the time slapping my date's nether regions around like a ten dollar whore. Suddenly, my date collects herself, and punches El Duce right in his fat, puffy, fat little fat mush, just unloads a 500 right into his disgusting little cocksucker, POW!!!

El Duce goes flying back, trying lamely to regain his balance, runs backwards into a chair, falls backwards over the chair, cracks his skull on the floor of the club, and he is knocked completely out cold. My date and I kind of look at each other and I say "Hm, maybe we better get out of here before the roadies notice." at which point two roadies walk over El Duce's motionless form and begin laughing their asses off and calling him names. My date had to go home early, and after dropping her off, I turned to my friends and said "I'm in love."

I don't know whatever happened to my date, her name was Caroline, I forget her last name, but some lucky man out there has himself one hell of a wife.

"I'm going thru your purse!" - The late El Duce

The Mistreaters Cancel remaining tour. [21 Jul 2003|11:10am]

[ mood | sad ]

Milwaukee's r'n'r band the Mistreaters canceled the remaining part of their tour. The band was on route to Houston, TX from New Orleans, LA when their van was engulfed in flames. Their equipment was destroyed which forced them to cancel.

Other bad news, three members of the powerpop band The Exploding Hearts were killed Saturday night when their van flipped over on I-5 in Oregon. They had just released a full length earlier this year titled "Guitar Romantic" which King Louie Bankston wrote songs for them and played keyboards on their records. R.I.P.

Freddy vs. Jason [16 Aug 2003|12:05pm]

*sorry for the crossposting*

as you all know, Freddy vs. Jason will be coming out Aug. 15th. im looking to actually rent out a theater for me and everyone i know and dont know to see it in. basically its going to just be a fun time and a chance to meet new people who might be interested in the same things.

there needs to be at least 100 people all 17 or older. it will cost 5 dollars a head (if it costs less than that due to more people coming than 100 i'll donate the rest to the venue project). the movie will have to be shown before business hours so most likely around 10 or 11 am on saturday.

these are not my rules. movie theaters are dumb and want a crap load of cash if its during business hours.

if you think you might want to go please email me at amyvomit@yahoo.com and let me know how many people you'd like to bring with you.

also let me know if you have any suggestions on which theater would be ideal. i have a couple in mind but would love the input. thanks.
