    Members went to: Morphine Angel, Chronic, Thread, The Third Side



    From Michael Farrar: I forget what the name of the group is that Brian and Phil went on to form, as well as the name of their guitar player (which is bad since I worked at a place called MacSmart with him for about four months. Like many Lincoln musicians he worked at Dietz Music House for a couple of years in the guitar dept. and then opened his own, short lived, music store. I think it was Tom ???). Fantastic musicians - way beyond my level!!! Ghost Dance Ritual fell apart when Phil took a job playing drums in some group that got thrown together for the sole purpose of touring with and opening for Jefferson Starship. Although we tried keeping stuff going thru the mail there were some differences between Fynbu and Farr (well, Fynbu and everybody really).

    From Brian Farr: I thought Farrar was one of the darkest guitar players that I played with. He had the coolest effects that would make Helios tinkle a little. Phil and I left the band and after his Hawaii "lounge" gig we got together with Bob Spire (Tom?) and started a band called Chronic. We played for awhile without a singer doing our own vocals and then Mike Ellerbeck aka Micheal Thomas, Micheal Beck and many other "stage" names he had at the time. He was a pretty good singer but after working with him for a year or two you started to see the "real" part of him. He has since moved to Arizona to make it big....well he thinks. After Chronic disbanded Phil, Mike Pardee and myself started Thread. Once again we worked on songs and tried to get a singer and until we did we sang ourselves. Then Andrew Snook came along after leaving Echoing Green. We had a killer band at that time but once again life takes you to other places and it took Andrew to Cali.

    GRANDMA'S COOKIES / TALL TALES ZINE
    Years Published 1979 - 1980

    From Eric Hallstrom: Originally Kevin Gregorius, myself and Jarret Kopsinski (sp?) had this underground paper at Southeast Highschool called The Lamppost. Since I was a little more hardcore oriented, I took the cue to start my own zine. Initially called Grandma’s cookies, it had some decent music-related stuff, but became more and more a pretentious, introspective personal journal ala Cometbus. Probably my crowning achievement was an interview with Fugazi that was picked up by some major magazine that was at the interview but not allowed to ask any questions. I recall I had lots of music reviews. Kevin wrote for the zine sometimes and frequently reviewed material too. He had an off-and-on piece about his real-life adventures (i.e. asking to borrow the Governor’s dust-buster and getting denied).

    Members Went To: Satin, The Garden Party

    From the Nebraska Hall of Fame: Born in 1944, Joe Gray is one of the first Lincoln, Nebraska musicians to enter the wonderful world of rock & roll. Joe became interested in rock music in the mid-1950’s by listening to his sister talk on his family party-line to Nebraska’s first rock singer, Bobby Lowell.

    Joe’s first live performance was playing guitar with Saint Vince & The Swing Kings (Crazy Vince Conners aka Jim Smithson). Their first gig was between DJ record spins at Pershing Auditorium in downtown Lincoln. Joe was 14 years old at the time.

    Joe played along side and was friends with many early Nebraska rockers, including Bobby Lowell, Pat Glenn, Jim Akin, Jim Cidlik, and Charley Bonds.

    Joe’s next band was The Rebounds. They recorded "Diary of Life" & "Graveyard Pistol" recorded at Wolz Music Store in Lincoln and released on ELCO Records, from New Orleans, LA.

    Joe later played in some of Lincoln’s first club bands-The Invaders with Jim Akin and The Thunderbirds. These bands played at many of the great rock bars along Cornhusker Highway, including the original Royal Grove and Robbie’s Happy Corner.

    IN the mid-60’s Joe joined a group, originally formed in Orchard, NE (The Del Rays) by guitar wizard, Rick Cowling. Changing their name to The Knights of Day---Another "High Hair" band, they became a fixture as a house band at Robbie’s Happy Corner as well as touring the country till the early 1970’s. Gray has switched to bass years before, and became well known for his soaring tenor vocals in soulful versions of "Angel Baby" and "Mr. Pitiful".

    Joe later played in "Satin" & The Black Magic Band (aka Hercules & The Black Magic Band) and his favorite group- The Garden Party. Joe has recorded with Bobby Lowell in the mid-1980’s and with Larry Hall "The Ghost of Billy the Kid". Now retired form active playing, Joe Gray is considered on of the most influential, talented and hard working good guys in Nebraska pop music history.

    From Tery Daly...This band was entirely unrealized potential. We really only started to hit our stride and figure out what the hell we were doing and where we wanted to go musically in our final days. I didn't hear a lot of bands doing 3 part harmonies besides us.

    Tery Daly's list of essential Lincoln releases:
    In no particular order other than as they come to me:

  • 13 Nightmares - Shitride - Had Paul Westerberg grown up in Lincoln, The Replacements would have been 13 Nightmares.
  • Plastik Trumpet - Are You PT? What? A pop masterpiece from right here in Lincoln??? You bet your ass!
  • Mercy Rule - Providence
  • Sideshow - Eggplants and Sunspots
  • Opium Taylor - Boy-White City - Everybody seems to like Fade Machine, Fade Magazine better but I think that album pales in comparison to this one.
  • The Millions - Raquel
  • Drive By Honky - Thrift Americana - I like them all. The first one was kind of like the "lo-fi" early version of D-bH, and Double Live Platinum was a great example of the harder late period with John Taylor...the songs were great, but I think the band lost something with the addition of John. Thrift Americana was "Classic" Drive-by. It captured the band at what I think was it's best. I miss this band.
  • Linoma 1 Compilation - both Linoma I & II captured a moment in time, 1 is far superior, I think.
  • The Geckos - Thistle - Raw Fucking Power!
  • The Lepers - The Love From Above - Their last album before leaving Lincoln and a big development songwriting-wise from the first album.
  • The Trendies - 7 Songs - The Trendies were best experienced live, but it's nice to have something to remind of them.
  • Pablo’s Triangle - s/t - Another band best experienced live, but the album kicks too.
  • Crush The Clown - Allright...So We're All Going To Hell - I think my feelings about Crush are pretty well established around here, but this CD shows everything that was great about them.
  • The Black Dahlias - What I Do At Midnight - This album was never released, so most people don't know it, but it's some of Charles' and the band's, best work.
  • Mister Baby - S/T - 100% Chicks, 100% Trash...Duct Tape and Tequilla...Feedback and fun...
  • Tangelo - Year of Saturdays

    Tery was also a member of The Atomic Pigs, Creatures of Habit, and is currently in Suzy Dreamer & Her Nightmares, The Static Octopus and The Master 8000.

    Members went to:

    This eclectic band is famous for creating the music for the NETV documentary on Claus Oldenberg and his sculpture "Torn Notebook" which was installed on the UNL campus.

    Howlooseanation has more instruments, and more exotic instruments, than any other Lincoln band, by far. Which other band owns a Danmo (Vietnamese), a Theremin (of Bob Moog's design), synthesizers, a Hammond organ, a toy piano, slide whistles, harmonicas, bells, and dozens of other exotic "world" instruments?

    After each show, the audience inevitably crowds around, eager to see and learn about the exotic instruments, of which the members happilly demonstrate. Each member plays over a dozen instruments, which is why they aren't listed with each member...

    All music is their own, and not written down. Each weekly jam session is recorded, however. Each member plays pretty much whatever they feels fits.

    Howlooseanation has performed for openings at the Sheldon Art Gallery, and as part of the parks & recreation department's summer concerts at the Antelope Park bandshell, and put on many shows at the Wagon Train Project's 7th Street Loft, including their annual Halloween shows. Some show titles: "6x12" (1999), "Der Golem 1999" (1999), and "Inspace" (2000).

    From Eric Hallstrom: All in all, I found Ice 9 to be one of the most musically satisfying bands I was ever in and was always disappointed that we were not around long enough to record. I am not even sure we existed in 1994. We may not have even started until spring of 1995. I need to sort our whether Ice 9 came together after I was kicked out of RR 134, or whether Justin and I first came together in Ice 9, after Caffiend and then came back together with Aaron, Nate and Josh.

    Live At Paul's Tape Cover
    Another Illegitimates tape cover. This one is a live tape recorded at the legendary little Paul's house. The show was great and the tape sounded good so we put it out. Looking back now, we had some better recordings but this is great since it documents the scene at that time and makes Paul's house a part of Lincoln's punk scene history.

    From Johnny Smith: The singer for the illegitimates - Tyler Waller, is the nephew of Sara Kovanda. She's played in lots of well known lincoln bands (The Click, etc). Truthfully, if it wasn't for her loaning us one, we wouldn't have had a bass amp to use and couldn't have started playing shows as soon as we did. so, Sara Kovanda is partly responsible for the illegitimates. Sara is the sister of Tyler's dad.

    Whenever there is discussion of "great Nebraska guitar players", the name of Jack Davis is mentioned.

    Davis moved to Lincoln, NE in 1964 and joined up with Hall of Fame Inductee, Jim Akin playing in the very popular Invaders. Also in the Invaders at that time was Carl Portie on bass, and Arnie Reeves on drums. After Portie left the band (moving back to Beaumont, TX) - Hall of Fame Inductee, the late Joe Gray joined on bass (complete with "Green" hair). Later, Greg "Jeep" Bloom joined on bass. Davis says this was "his favorite band".

    Davis later played in The Del Reys, with Rick Cowling, Vance Stone (Hall of Fame Inductee with The Modds), & Stan Jacobson. That group evolved into The Knights of Day, mainstay at Robbie's Happy Corner on Cornhusker Highway in Lincoln (along with other great bands including The Eccentrics & Dani & The Roulettes). That version of The Knights of Day included Davis, Cowling. Joe Gray & Bruce Pursley. He then went back to The Invaders, which then included the great Jerry Jacoby on sax. Davis later played in Rick & The Wanderers (with Rick Simpson), The Garden Party (a vocal harmony band including Joe Gray and Hall of Fame Inductee, Rick Bell (The Coachmen), The Barracudas, Lincoln Sinfony (with Les Meyers, Joe Hearn and Hall of Fame Inductee Bill Childs (J. Harrison B. & The Bumbles) on drums. In the late 60's - Davis, Tim Murphy, Les Meyers and John Thompson formed The Enterprise, an 8-piece R&B group. A vinyl recording was released by The Enterprise, which is now a sought after collectable. Although many players called The Enterprise their band over the years, a highlight was an occasional appearance of the then 14-year old "wunderkind" Steve Hanson on guitar. Hanson is also a 2000 Inductee into The Hall of Fame. The first live band and later house band at the legendary Zoo Bar (owned by Larry Boehmer) in Lincoln, NE was "Cotton" (aka Cotton Blues Band), that included Davis, Dave Trupp (formerly of The Eccentrics on drums), Hall of Fame Inductee Jim Cidlik (on keys/vocals) and later George Bryan (Hall of Fame Inductee with J. Harrison B. & The Bumbles) on slide guitar. The Zoo Bar, named the top Blues Bar in the USA on several occasions, is also a 2000 Inductee into The Hall of Fame. After that, Davis played occasionally with Joe Gray and other blues greats in the Lincoln area. In the 60's Davis also worked in the "guitar shop" at Lincoln's Dietz Music (a Hall of Fame Inductee) - showing aspiring musicians guitar licks that they would still be using years to come. Davis has been an inspiration to many rock and blues musicians, still performing throughout the USA. His son, Jason Davis, who grew up listening to blues music all of his early life, is now a nationally known Blues-Man himself, fronting "Baby Jason & The Spankers".

    ...initially called The Nomads, these Fremont High School graduates migrated to The University of Nebraska in Lincoln in 1963. Changing their name to J. Harrison B. & The Bumbles, they were campus favorites through the 1960's and toured Nebraska, Colorado, Iowa, Illinois, Missouri and Kansas from 1963-68. (The name "Bumbles" was dropped about 1967 - changing the name to "J. Harrison B.").

    While in Lincoln, they played such venues as Pla-Mor Ballroom, Robbie's Happy Corner, Pershing Auditorium, The University of Nebraska Union, Jazz & Java, Keen-Time and 9-High Parties, The Lincoln and Cornhusker Hotel Ballrooms, Der Loaf & Stein, & The Red Ram.

    Changing from a pure rock band (guitar-sax-drums), the band expanded to an 8-piece Rhythm & Blues Band in the late 60's. The band frequently featured a 3-piece horn section, Hammond M-3 organ, and a wild choreographed stage show, fronted by soul singer, Liz Williams. Band members left the stage regularly to prance around the dance floor, bopping dancers with a "Whiffle-ball" Bat, wearing "Captain Crunch Hats", and riding on the shoulders of Stan Johnson, while still playing their horns.

    Unfortunately, no commercial recordings were ever released by the band. However, 45-RPM acetates of The Nomads exist in EP form, recorded at ROTO Records in 1963. The band also recorded three excellent sides at BraveRecords in Harvey, Illinois in 1967. These progressive self-penned tunes combined the funk of an RB band; a touch of psychedelia, and jazz overtones mixed with excellent vocals and are still fresh some 33 years later. Unfortunately these masters were never released.

    J. Harrison B. performed for a private party for movie producer, Otto Preminger and also performed for the cast of the then popular television show "Desert Fox" in Aspen, CO. Drummer in The Nomads and later J. Harrison B. & The Bumbles (from 1963 through 1966) was Mike Klingner, a native of McCook, NE. Mike was an Air Force fighter pilot and was shot down over Laos in 1970. Initially declared MIA, he was declared Killed in Action a year later. Wreckage of his plane was found in Laos in 1995 - but no evidence of his body or gear was found. A Memorial Service was held in McCook, NE on July 3, 2000 to honor Mike & a room at The McCook City Library was dedicated to his memory, along with a showcase of memorabilia from his life.

The event was broken up by Lincoln police and is nicely documented in Gel Zine, which features photos of the bands playing, the police arriving, and among others, Terry Pieper being arrested. Some of the other bands playing the event were The Art Students, D.K.ed Willies, The Erratics, Wargasm, and Critical Infants.

    Members went to: France

    This was a legendary one-off performance that is still talked about today. Matt Silcock weighs in on why it was a performance of note:

    From Matt Silcock - All I can say for the reason it's a show of note is that it was HILARIOUSLY ENTERTAINING! If I do say so myself.

    Let's see, it started with a skit we called "The Dawn of Man" in which Shane made 'eerie' keyboard noise while I recited a pompous introduction in a British accent while Joe K. writhed around under a sheet, portraying the movement of primordial ooze. At some point, I switched from pompous Brit to hip-hop MC and introduced "THE MOTHERFUCKIN' JOE KRINGS PROG INFLATION!!!" This was the cue for Joe to leap out from behind the sheet, wearing nothing but boxer shorts, and for Shane to hit the 'hip hop' preset on the keyboard. We took turns doing break-dancing moves and Joe did an introductory rap.

    This was just the first five minutes, so you know we were working hard to entertain the crowd. The set also included a country version of Public Enemy's "Bring Tha Noise," a straight cover of The Modern Lover's "Someone I Care About," and two of our compositions: a political crust-punk song called "Hey Ayn Rand", and an AC/DC homage called "Aim To Please." ("I aim to please/and I shoot to thrill/if it's me you want/then it's you I'll fill"). Oh, and the show ended with a reprise of the hip-hop beat and a call to the audience to come onstage and breakdance with us. We got a few takers.

    We worked hard on it, we dressed in ridiculous outfits, we kept it well under 40 minutes, and we were very drunk but not too drunk. It was a successful performance!

    The music was after John Cage and Dada, in other words ranging from improvised to chaotic. As this was more than a traditional public was ready for, the entire audience tended to walk out before the end of the concert.

    L.S.D. continued on as Jared Alberico & Nick Wilson, performing as late as 2000.)

It should be noted that Derek Higgins was the bass player of a band called "Digital Sex" (from Omaha) and was only playing drums at this time to help us out.We played a set at the Drumstick, opening for some larger Texas Rockabilly band as I can recall. We pklayed mostly Motown covers and some funky shit,.... a few originals which I recall most was "Love Slave" Love slave get on down yeah love slave get on down yeah, love slave get on down yeah LOVE SLAVE!!!!!!!!!!! (kind of a James Brown tribute) We actually had more gigs probably than the Sons of Hemingway, but the Sons of Hemingway were a much more artistic statement for those times.

    From Ross Schlesinger - Los chincos were around from like summer 96?-new years eve 98. It started off in columbus/duncan, NE. as just theron and myself. We played our first show in my parent's kitchen to our friends. It was just bass and drums power violence music. We didn't really practice for about 6 months and played a few shows. We recorded a demo after about 6 months and then started practicing. We then got Phil Mayben to play keyboards/noise at some shows. He was around for a bit just being drunk and throwing stuff at us while we would play shows. We started playing a bunch of shows in linocoln then decided to do another demo tape. This time with much better sounding songs. We played a bunch of shows with tons of touring bands like Assuck, Reversal Of Man, Erishkigal, The Inifinity Dive, Fagatron, Armatron, The Scientific Method....we also set up lots of shows at our house in Lincoln called the pi house. we then got Ian Whitmore to play keyboards for us and some backup vocals. Phil moved to second bass. We started playing shows regularly in Lincoln, Omaha and Norfolk. We ended up having two demos and tracks on two different compilations out of NewYork and Illinois. I can't remember exact on those. We were suppose to do a split with Godstomper out of the Bay area. We played our last show at the Cog Factory on new years eve 1998. Theron had moved to Denver and about two weeks later Wasteoid started. Theron visited here once and we recorded one more demo as Shredding Assholes aka Los Chincos. We were on one accidental therapy comp tape. It was sweet. Thats about all I can give i guess. It was quite the band and experience.

    Great interview with Bobby Lowell about his history in Lincoln

    Bobby Lowell & The Rock-A-Boogie Boys on Lincoln, Nebraska's Roto Records released Nebraska's first rock records in 1955. The original Rock-A-Boogie Boys consisted of Bobby Lowell and Jim Akin. They were "Umm Baby Baby" and "Sixteen Chicks." These regional rock hits are highly sought after today by collectors throughout the world, especially in Europe, where Rockabilly never died. (Another early Roto Record performer was Marty Martin - now known as Branson, Missouri Star "Boxcar Willie").

    Bernie McGinn on shows that stand out in his memory...
    7/7/1983 = JFA/Baby Hotline - The First brickyard show, and my 13th Birthday. They put "bernie's big birthday bash" on the flyer. JFA's drummer had spiked hair. I was in punk rock heaven.

    Power of the Spoken Word - In general. Maybe it was being an impressionable 15 year old kid, but they were so intense. Being 15 and getting arrested at the last Brickyard show for Failure to disburse.

    Bikini Kill at the Culture Center. They only had a tape out at the time and played to 20 or 30 people. Really confrontational - and great.

    Jawbreaker, Tribe 8, Rocket from the Crypt, Phleg Camp @ Red and Black

    Spinanes, Tsunami, Mercy Rule @ Duffys

    All the Caulfield bands. It was a great time.

    Shows at Shakes were a lot of fun, especially seeing people whip together a band the week before and play their stuff.

    Show Review: AUGUST 21st, 1997 - MERCY RULE and OPIUM TAYLOR @ Safari Nite Club
    Going to Grandma's is a local band that has been kicking around for a few years that really has never done a thing for me. They're nice guys but it comes down to taste and there's just too little of something or too much of something else but it just doesn't work for me.

    The thing that comes to mind with Opium Taylor is noise behind a very painful nervious breakdown. A raw nakedness that at times is too painful to watch. It makes you uncomfortable and challenges you. It's not simple entertainment and that really doesn't sell a crowd but then look at Jesus Lizzard.

    I remember the first night I saw Mercy Rule, it was back in 93 and my friend Gil's band Wayback Machine was openning for them at Hairy Mary's. They hit the stage with these lights shinning straight up into their face like a flash light under the chin. They put me in the mind of some of the direction that Naked Raygun played with. Guitar rhythms driving the soft female vocals through a ride of destruction. They have this way of being out of control and then bringing it back down to the softness of good sex. They match the lyrics to the music or maybe the other way around while the guitarist destroys his tools

    From Randy Duerr - Where did the name Middle Monkey come from? I was looking for something loosely based in Eastern Spiritual Philosohy. There was this character, "Monkey Monkey", that used to play tricks on the gods, but that didn't quite sound right, plus I didn't want to get us confused with The Monkees. So I thought about the "See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil' monkeys, and thought the "hear no evil" guy, the Middle Monkey seemed to fit the bill.

    From Marty Amsler - The memoirs of one who's had the unique experience of being a part of incredible nights of music at Duffy's from behind the bar, in the audience, and on stage: While touring, we would often run into road haggard, ripe bands that had played at Duffy's. The quote that sums it up best was "It felt like a hot shower and a home cooked meal." Probably because after shows, members in the audience would offer their homes as a crash pad. Friendships were forged that remain today. Everyone who gladly paid three bucks at the door to support their favorite local band, or a touring act who they had never heard of made Duffy's much more than a bar that had a stage and cheap beer.

    Having played at bars and clubs throughout the U.S. and Europe, we never experienced more enthusiastic and forgiving supporters and critics. I would chalk it up to being from Lincoln, but I witnessed the same Duffy's hospitality to countless bands traveling through.

    But I'd have to say that the most memorable nights at Duffy's included any combination of Thirteen Nightmares, Trout Mystery, the Leafy Green Things, Sideshow, Mercy Rule, The New Brass Guns, Elysium Crossing, The Return, For Against, The Millions, Flesh Petal, and the Yard Apes, playing on the same bill. It was a time before local bands even dreamed of being signed. It was a time when a group of friends would get together in a basement with a case of beer and pawn shop instruments and exorcise their demons of heartbreak, society, or mad ravings about god knows what. They then felt like the luckiest people on the planet to play those songs to five people for ten bucks while college cover bands were playing "I melt with you" at frat gigs for a grand. It was about getting on stage, having a blast, and then watching your friends in the other bands do their thing. It was about the audience, which some nights consisted mainly of the other band members, erupting in applause after a nervous guitar player pulled off a great solo. It was about sharing equipment - and the occasional drummer. It was about pooling the take from the door to buy old style for the after hours party.

    Mister Baby

    From Julee Dunekacke -
    1. Pablo's Triangle w/Clean Plate Club (and Polecat reunion)? June 2000.
    This was the first show I ever saw at Duffy's. It was also my first time drinking Old Style. It was also my first time seeing Pawl Tisdale, Matt Focht, Ben Armstrong, Colby Stark...etc, etc play. I was awe-stricken. It was a nice kick in the ass that made me think, "Heeeey, why don't I play here sometime?"

    2. The Black Dahlias/13 County/The Holy Ghost July 4th Spectacular 2001. Fireworks? We don't need no stinking fireworks! If I ever leave Lincoln, I want a homecoming like that. There were more guest singers jumping on stage than I could count, each one possessed by the spirit of rock'n'roll. Tery Daly jumped on stage with The Black Dahlias, Chris Goeden and a few others jumped on stage with the Holy Ghost. (I also recall Rich Higgins jumping on stage, but at this point, I can't confirm that!) If Charles would've kept his shirt on, this show would have been #1. Just kidding, Charles.

    3. HOLS/ Drive-by Honky in June 2001. Drive-by Honky was in top form, weaning everyone off of Thrift Americana with some kickass new songs. HOLS almost brought the stage down. They were hot off of their tour with Frank Black. This is how RAWK should be.

    4. The 13 County cd release show w/the W.T. The W.T. pulled out an awesome cover of 13 County's "Wanderin' William", which I not only found entertaining, but very hilarious at the same time. They also featured an ultra-slow version of "At My Weakest", which was a nice change from the norm. 13 County unleashed the song "80's goin' 90", which didn't make it on to the new album. Chris jumped off of an amp or two and the drum set during the final song.

    5.Betty Blowtorch w/Mister Baby. Ok, so I'm biased on this one because I'm in Mister Baby. It was by far the best show Mister Baby has played, despite the drums falling apart during "Cemetery Mary". Having the Betty Blowtorch gals in the front cheering us on and taking pictures of us didn't hurt. It was an interesting crowd too. There were many regulars in attendance, but also many people who didn't normally come to shows that really turned the excitement up a notch.

    Runner up: The Crush the Clown show where Nick pulled apart his guitar at the end. He turned around to face the audience with this look of joy that I had never seen from him before. Not sure when this show was, but it was a great moment.

    From Michael Farrar: Picking up on where Fish Box never really went (but wanted to) Morphine Angel continued to attempt to do what wasn't being done in Lincoln at the time - very dark, gothic and heavy industrial. Thinking we'd learned from our mistakes with Fish Box we intentionally did not play very often - and when we did we tried to put on a complete show with light affects, smoke machines, stage props/decorations, etc. The best was probably the Halloween gig at The Edge. (yet another appearance by Sara Kovanda in the audience!!!)

    I ended up leaving the group for several reasons, only a couple of them having to do with personality conflicts - mostly it was to take a very well paying job in Florida. I was replaced by our "manager", Barton Wolfe (this would have been the "personality conflict" - we didn't need a "manager", especially not Barton Wolfe). They re-recorded the material that was on the two demos and self released it as 'Project Isa'. see: Sonic Boom for a review (and since the reviewer picks out the track called "Fine Home Design", yes, it was a cover. It was originally written by Jeff Runnings as a Four Against One song that Fynbu sang on. According to Fynbu he asked Runnings if we could do it and was told not only could we do it but that we did not need to credit him as the author. Approximately 3/4 of the songs on "Project Isa" were written by me and were done without my permission (I do actually have the copyrights to those pieces - oh well, no big deal since I'm almost ashamed of having written them now))

    Macatee is currently in Texas with a group called Asmodeous X with Brad Marshall.

    I think that Fynbu is still flogging the Morphine Angel name around, although I am unsure if he is currently in Nebraska or Chicago.

    I left and am now in central Florida with an off-and-on project called 'minus1' - something that can't decide if it's power-pop, gothic-industrial, or progressive metal. Right after leaving Morphine Angel I had a small bit part as one of Sara Kovanda's "dancers" for her Yvette & the heShe show at Panic - I played a weather station radio during the opening number.

    "An Ashen Dream" was recorded at Serious Fish Studios by Rob Arnold and "A Fire in His Hands" was recorded at Studio Q by Doug Marx.

    From Paul Frederic:
    Most of Mike Farrar’s recollections on the early days of M.A are accurate as far as I can recall. I was brought into the project during the gray area between Fish Box and Morphine Angel. I had left Red Max some time ago, generally ‘given up’ on doing music, and was only a step away from joining the Navy when I got the call from Johnny.

    Johnny was what you call a ‘natural-born-rock-singer’…I think this was apparent to anyone who ever met him. With little-to-no professional training, he had a voice that could growl and rumble with angst, ring strong with clarity, or croon in a soft and gentle manner that always gave you a sentimental melancholic feeling. He was forever dodging comparisons with Peter Murphy and Ian Curtis, but those who know him knew also that his real hero was always David Bowie. And his look – the thin, disheveled look years before Marylin Manson, which never changed regardless of what he ate (some people have it sooo rough). He was a veritable urban legend, and his name appears all over this website – Hymn to Joy, DBL, and so on.

    He also had this way of talking about the dream of doing music that really made you believe. As I later learned, believing is half the battle. Johnny and I were different in so many ways, but I think it was the feeling of being ‘outcasts’ amongst the Lincoln music scene that bonded us together, and kept us fueled in the years that came. Mike – a fellow outcast in his own right - was into philosophy and esotericism, which was something I had been interested in for years, and especially the notion of expressing it via music. It didn’t take long for these guys to give me the ‘band bug’ again.

    I wasn’t terribly ‘in the know’ over what happened when Mike left – it was really between him and Johnny. Mike was one of the best MA guitarists ever, and with his keen usage of effects he created an ambience and spacey quality that MA never fully recaptured. However, at the time Mike left, my biggest gripe was that he had been giving me Tae Kwondo lessons at the time, and now I was out one helluva teacher. Barton Wolf might have been pushing it a bit in the beginning by presenting himself as a manager, but what he did have is connections with the goth/industrial scene outside of Nebraska, which was just what we needed. He and his girlfriend, Sid Cook, lived in Omaha. Sid was knowledgeable in regards to the music industry, having herself relocated from Houston, Texas where she had worked with an industrial band called Bamboo Crisis. (Make a mental note of Houston – in comes up again later).

    Wolf’s guitar playing took MA toward more of a Ministry sound. He also had an A-Dat player and mixing board, so we could record on our own. This was very significant, as we could save all the time/energy that would have been spent figuring out how to pay one of Lincoln’s 2 or 3 studios of the day, and instead use that money to press our own CD. We founded Black Pepper Records (a name I had used previously for producing my independent film “Shiva”) and this was the vehicle by which we released Project ISA. Lincoln studio guru Eric Medley mastered the first MA album, and in Mike Pardee’s studio. I’d actually attended to Lincoln South East High School with Mike Pardee, but the mastering job was the first opportunity I’d had to really work with him.

    Project ISA got it’s fair share of good press outside of Lincoln – Industrial Nation, Blue Blood, Spectre and even overseas in zines like Bat’s and Red Velvet and Dark Angel. It was all print media at the time, and the Sonic Boom review is (unfortunately) one of the only web-based reviews I think it ever got. I also mused over the reviewers comment on Fine Home Design, but chalked it up to coincidence due to the extreme unlikelihood of someone like that actually having a copy of the 15 year-old DBL tape, but who knows. We never got much support from local press of the day, and if you hadn’t seen us walking down “O” Street to our practice space at the Hurricane, you might have never suspected goth/industrial to exist in Lincoln at the time. All our support came from the club/bar scene in Lincoln – Knickerbockers, Duffys, and Hurricane (Earnie, Dave Rabies, and Bubba respectively. Amoree Lovell (who now does her own music in Seattle) got us played on KRNU a couple of times.

    The Project ISA concept was all fleshed out by Wolf, Johnny, and me. I was really into the runes at the time, and the rune Isa (ice) – symbolizing strength, stability, and contraction - went into the title, and the Dagaz rune became the main graphic, partially because there was a store called Dagaz in Omaha at the time that supplied us with our Stretch F*CKIN Jeans and Doc Martens. Johnny had the idea of adding a rose on the Dagaz symbol and Brad’s clever pen made it so. This became the famous MA logo that went on all the t-shirts and stickers. I still see those stickers on the walls of bathrooms in goth clubs throughout the country. Along with press photos courtesy Johnny’s wife Tia, we had a package that we could begin doing things with.

    With this, MA started touring the U.S. extensively. The Great Lakes area, the South, and the West Coast. Brad Marshal – whom I’d met through Mike and who had done the artwork for Project ISA – joined us during this time as Lighting Tech. I could write a book on all the shenanigans from this period alone. The weather of time and place was the best indicator of whether we adhered to more of a pirate, or Viking, motif. We played with many other bands in the national scene – Apocalypse Theatre, Garden of Dreams, Empire Hideous, Sunshine Blind, Switchblade Symphony, the Electric Hellfire Club, and I’m sure many more I can no longer recall. Also during this time period we came in contact with John Michaels (whom would later co-produce LoveNest MurderFest with me), Thomas Thorn from the Electric Hellfire Club (whom eventually became a good friend), and Jennifer Chen of Spectre Magazine (whom I later discovered was my soul-mate). We also beat Wolf at hearts (card playing in the van was a tradition) more times than I can count, and ne’er did it cease to vex him.

    This all went on for about a year. The last tour with Wolf ended in (I believe) the winter of 95. There had been a personality conflict developing between Johnny and Wolf (perhaps having grown from a few to many controversial games of hearts), and it all erupted in a fist-fight between the two of them on the streets of New Orleans – a now almost legendary incident in some circles. One very long, quiet and uncomfortable eight-hour drive later, and we were back in Lincoln -- Wolf back in Omaha. Johnny and Wolf didn’t talk again for many years after that.

    The good thing about that New Orleans gig was that we scored a keyboard from a fellow Lincolnite (name escapes me) and Brad was promoted to the stage on his first E-mu. To this day he still prefers E-mu (much to my chagrin).

    It might have all ended there, but then two things happened: 1) John Michaels – a Sound Tech/Producer guy we’d met on the road, called us from a studio in Alabama and said he could get us some free studio time. And 2) the editrix of Dark Angel, an Australian Zine, wanted to bring us over for an Australian tour. It was apparent at this point that Johnny and Wolf weren’t going to patch things up, so I started looking for a new guitarist. Heath Cole (Mannequin Beach, Whiskey Sour Notes, Wide) tried out, but was a bit too energetic (i.e. technically skilled) for our speed. I stumbled upon Carl Gibson, whom I’d known from my One Dark Rabbit days. Turned out, he was one of the 25 or so people in Lincoln then aware of Cleopatra Records – this and his bizarre style got him the job on guitar.

    Carl added the most ‘unique’ dimension to MA. He was heavily influenced by Helios Creed and used tons of effects, which brought back some of the early ‘Farrarian spacy-ness’ to the sound. He played guitar unlike anyone else I’d ever seen before or since – like he’d been shut up in a cabin completely isolated for years, and just came up with this style, free from any outside influences. It was actually a bit creepy at times. Yet he was completely on top of all the new stuff that was coming out on Cleopatra Records at the time. Go figure.

    Carl and Brad on stage created the MA set-up: Keyboardist in the back center where drums would usually go, Bass to the left and guitar to the right, front-man center. Despite more inevitable line-up changes, this stage set-up would remain an MA constant for years to come.

    I set upon writing new music. Brad and I started working together on stuff and on New Years Eve (still 1995, I believe), came up with “Day One” which later became an endearingly dark LoveNest song. Also during this time, Thomas Thorn from Electric Hellfire Club called me about Shane Lassen (EHC keyboardist) dying. This was a heavy thing for a lot of people in our circle at the time who had known Shane, and the song RDL was written in response to that. Soon we hit the road again for some more gigs up north, (had to break Carl in) eventually to plant ourselves at Soundwerks Studios in Decatur, Alabama.

    It was a nice, big studio – the real deal (not everyone and their dog was running Power Tools on the home PC quite yet). Michaels had a day job assisting in the studio, and the owners (who also ran Delinquent Records) had given him permission to do his own stuff ‘off hours’. We set to work and recorded all of LoveNest in like three nights. Everyone was really unprepared, and I ended up actually doing a lot of the instrumentation myself, and started to experiment with sampling and loops and stuff. Finally we were done. Soundwerks allowed us to make some demos for shopping, and then told us the catch – they were keeping the masters till we provided them with some money. Apparently there had been a miscommunication, but either way there wasn’t much we could do so we shrugged our shoulders and headed back home to prepare for the Australian tour.

    I suppose then it was spring of 96 that we headed to Australia. We drove to LA, left our van with Ryan Springola (Torture Records) in Riverside, and boarded the plane from LAX. We toured up and down the East Coast of Australia for 3 weeks. I could write another book about all the stuff that happened in Oz. We played with Ikon, Immortal, Discordia, and partied with sci-fi writer Storm Constantine. Azriel, who was the editor of Dark Angel magazine and had served as our road manager, had so much fun she decided to come back with us to America for a ‘few more rounds’.

    So eventually we found ourselves back in Nebraska. All that, and still we were thoroughly unacknowledged by any of the Lincoln Press of the day. Thomas Thorn from EHC had been trying to get us to move to Kenosha, Wisconsin for sometime, and we now decided to take him up on it. In the mean time, we did more shows at Knickerbockers, where Azriel – an amazon-sized, out-back woman with fire-red dreadlocks – became a bit of a novelty with some of the locals.

    Soon we were struggling to make our way in Kenosha. It was hard at first – Kenosha’s economy was worse than Lincoln’s. Carl could only take a couple of weeks before he resigned from the project and moved back to Lincoln. This was upsetting at the time, as we were looking to do a Florida tour playing support for EHC, which would have been really good for the band. Carl remains in Lincoln to this day, working on his solo project “Mesmeronicus”. He has also developed a number of intriguing conspiracy theories regarding MA, and “what really happened” in Australia. An intriguing scenario involving a Masonic circle of bankers in Iowa, mind control, and suppressed memories that will surely awaken for me when the time is right. (I’m actually looking forward to it).

    Kenosha is a very strange town, the guitarist from the Exploited lived there along with the Drummer from the UK Subs, and they had a new band called Billyclub that I believe now resides in Austin. Also, Giddle Partridge was living there playing Keyboards with EHC, and it was she whom introduced us to the Partridge Family Temple. Kenoshanites boast their town has the most bars per capita in the U.S. I’ve heard so many other towns make this same claim that I don’t know if it’s true, but Kenosha sure has a helluva-lotta bars, and I think we managed to hit most of them. Thomas let us set up rehearsal space in his basement, where we set to work jamming and fleshing out new material. We also spent some time hobnobbing in Milwaukee and Chicago, where we met Peter Steele (Type O), Lush, the Unsane, Scary Lady Sarah, Carrie Monster, and many other colorful characters. Azriel decided to move on around this time, and headed to Houston to work for Hollow Point Management (yes, that’s right…Houston again. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves…). I never saw or heard from Azriel again, which at times gives me sadness. I’ve since heard she moved back to Oz.


    Morphine Angel and the Electric Hellfire Club, Kenosha WI, circa Fall of 1996 L to R: Marshal, Carl Gibson, Thomas Thorn, Johnny Lee, Rich Frost, Paul Fredric

    The days rolled by lazily in Kenosha for a time. EHC left to go on tour with Gwar, then Danzig, and still we were looking for a new guitarist. We tried a couple of guys from Chicago, but they all just wanted to push the ethereal/ambient sound. I started really working with sequencers at this time, and even pushed for MA going all electro, but it didn’t ‘take’ with the guys. Things were on the verge of getting boring when out of the blue John Michaels called from Atlanta and said Delinquent wanted to release LoveNest. We were back in business. We paid off the recording and got a new CD released in one fell swoop.

    The whole LoveNest concept was something that actually came into being much earlier. Back in the Wolf days, we were sitting around in Lincoln, watching some slasher film or another. At first it looked like some teenagers making out, and Wolf said, “It’s a Love nest!” But then the scene cut dramatically to a psycho with a knife, and I said, “It’s a murderfest!” We all paused at how catchy that was, and somehow meaningful. As Americans I suppose we all suffer from a pathology that connects sex with violence, evidenced (or maybe caused) by the media, and epitomized in the slasher film genre. There’s always some teenager trying to get it on - which makes them somehow ‘guilty’ in terms of the narrative structure - and in comes Freddy, Jason, Michael or whoever, to dispense justice. The concept also seemed reflective of the MA experience over the last few years – so much conflict and loss combined with so much joy and acquisition.

    With a new album in the works and a tour on the horizon, we really needed a new guitarist. We inducted Charley Hickey from Ohio, whom we had met on previous tours. He relocated to Kenosha and began rehearsing in the kitchen of Brad and mine’s Apartment – a mere 5 blocks from the beaches of beautiful Lake Michigan. Charley came from more of a metal background, and was into Fear Factory and such. It took the MA sound in a slightly more Type-O direction. Heavy grooves and grinds with melodic and wispy male vocals.

    So LoveNest came out, and we went on tour again. This was to be the biggest, most elaborate, and last tour that Morphine Angel would go on as of this writing. We toured with an industrial/rock band from New York called Needulhed, who were great guys and we had all kinds of fun and ‘Pulp Fiction’ moments, from Mafioso club owners in Long Island, to Necronomicon-styled occultists from the trailer parks of Arkansas. We were out for 6 weeks, traveling from the great lakes to the East Coast, down south, and over to New Orleans. Wolf and Sid had since relocated to the Big Easy, and this time through, Johnny and Wolf reconciled, and we stayed in touch with him thereafter. Then Wichita, and the tour inevitably capped off at Knickerbockers in Lincoln. This would have been MA’s last appearance in Lincoln, and my own last performance there. We half-expected no one to come out for it, but were so pleasantly pleased to see so many old friends and familiar faces appear there. I had to do some explaining about what happened to Azriel. The tour was financially successful as well, and when we arrived back in Kenosha, we actually had enough money from the tour to pay our rent.


    Johnny and Paul rocking out on the LoveNest tour Wichita, KS; 1997

    After this we spent a few months gigging around Wisconsin and Illinois, and added a percussionist – Rick, or (P)rick as we came to affectionately refer to him. It was an electronic stand-up kit, one of EHC’s hand-me-downs, and the same kit that Rich Frost had used during his days with EHC.

    By this time we had established a strong fan-base in Milwaukee. Eventually, I got a call from a Ms. Dana Dark with Hollow Point Management in Houston. Apparently when Azriel had jetted to Houston, she had taken some copies of Project ISA and various other MA promotional materials with her. She had actually returned to Australia some months earlier, but these CDs were still floating around the Hollow Point office, and her replacement – Dana Dark had stumbled upon them. Hollow Point booked us a little Texas tour and during this time Sean Barush (Head Honcho for Hollow Point) and Dana offered to help relocate MA to Houston.

    I already had some friends in Houston and Johnny and I were both sick of living in arctic conditions, so we were an easy sell. The other guys took some convincing, but came around before too long. Before long we were soaking up the sun in Houston. Everything was groovy for all of two weeks before drama struck, and our relations with Hollow Point went south. No one was too excited about the notion of going back to Kenosha or Lincoln, but our presence in Houston seemed momentarily anticlimactic. Bamboo Crisis (whom Sid Cook had known many years prior) helped us settle in a bit, got us a rehearsal studio, and booked us a gig with them at the Annual Vampire Ball, which we later learned was a grand Houston tradition.

    We were trying to keep ourselves occupied with this when I got a call from Delinquent. It seemed LoveNest had done well enough to attract the attention of a Chicago “Fat-Cat” Manager by the name of Bill McCormick, and Delinquent wanted to do another MA record. Bill McCormick was the closest thing to a ‘real’ manager MA ever had. Real in the sense that he actually worked out of an office; in fact the offices of JB Roth and Associates, an entertainment law firm who handled big acts like James Brown and Judy Tenuta.

    Things started moving really fast again. We had four or five new songs we’d been working on leisurely over the last year, but we needed more. I programmed something like five more songs in three days, and soon we were tweaking them in rehearsal. As these songs developed, I realized that MA had finally ‘come into being’. These songs comprised the most ‘essentially MA’ stuff to date. They had darkness and a groove that effectively transmitted the last four years of struggle, passion, and sorrow that we had been through as a group, yet maintained a melancholically reflective feel. And they were deep too. Johnny’s lyrics worked with the feeling of the music with sensitivity and a passion that I’d never heard before. I haven’t heard many of these songs in years, but I still occasionally get one of them stuck looping in my mind, and a teary eye is often quick to follow.

    The new album was to be called ‘Age of Man’, which was Johnny’s suggestion. Cosmically speaking, the idea was that we had done the ‘ice’ thing with Project ISA, and the ‘fire’ thing with LoveNest, now let’s talk about Man. To me this meant an exploration of what it means to be human, and referred to the same emotions as conveyed by the ‘weeping’ images of Jesus or Buddha, who weep for humanity in all it’s ignorance and savagery. Brad made a killer design for it – a stylized face of the Hindu god Shiva – which was absolutely brilliant.

    At the same time, Delinquent was releasing a double disc compilation called the Pink and the Black. It was supposed to be a tribute to the connection between goth (black) and glam (pink). It featured MA, and a lot of other bands like Attrition, Bella Morte, Gossamer, and Sunshine Blind. The pink disc featured Dee Snider, and bunch of other glam bands that I was never familiar with, glam not really being my bag. A picture of Scary Lady Sarah (Chicago DJ/Promoter) graced its cover.

    We headed back to Alabama and recorded Age of Man in two weeks; with a three-day break in the middle to play a Pink & Black release party at The Bank in Manhattan. After recording, we all went octarate ways: Brad and I back to Houston, Johnny back to Nebraska and then Chicago, and Charley back to Ohio. We busied ourselves through post production by playing a couple of more shows like this – bussing or flying to meet for a weekend in either Chicago or Houston. It was supposed to be a temporary arrangement. Randy Blair who had played with Ohio-based Goth band ‘Que-up’ joined us on drums around this time. This was the final MA line-up involving Marshal and I.


    After the Vampire Ball show, Houston TX; October 1998 L to R: Randy Blair, Paul Fredric, Charley Hickey, Brad Marshal, Johnny Lee

    The last Morphine Angel show with Brad and I in the band was another Pink & Black Release party, this time at the Dome Room in Chicago. Scary Lady Sarah hosted it, and the turnout was huge. We shared the stage that night with an ‘up and coming’ Bella Morte.

    I probably don’t need to explain that a long distance relationship like this is a big strain on a band. Eventually the black day came when I got a call from Delinquent that they had decided not to release Age of Man, due to various dramas they’d been dealing with from other members. I did my best to run damage control, as I saw the release of this album to be of critical import. However, the scalpel had cut to deep, and I realized at this point how vastly I had been ‘out of the loop’ in regards to MA’s business decisions.

    This, I believe, is the closest thing I have to a “regret” concerning MA, that Age of Man (as I knew it) was never released. The world missed an opportunity to hear what MA was really supposed to sound like, and perhaps now never will.

    First we all decided to part ways creatively, then Brad and I were invited back to reform and continue in Chicago. We both had become fairly ‘settled’ in Houston by this point, and had already started working on the infant material that would later transform into Asmodeus X, so we both decided to pass on the offer. Wolf rejoined MA at this time, filling my roll as bass player, and some goth kid from Houston took over Brad’s place on the keys. I don’t know if that would all be considered “irony” or “poetic justice”, but it sure made for an uncomfortable moment when Johnny and Wolf appeared at my door in Houston to collect all the MA gear. Strangely, the one piece of gear they missed was “Alice” the Alesis drum machine that had fueled MA’s aggression for so many years. It still sits enshrined in my study, waiting perhaps for some mythical Ragnarok-styled melting of the ice to be reborn and start kicking out the jams again.

    To cap it all off, the August 1998 issue of Spin finally decided it was time to give MA it’s five minutes of fame. A review of the Pink & Black stated that MA “flex too much Neanderthal muscle to make sense in such twinkle-toed company”. For months I pondered whether this should be taken as a compliment or a dig. I guess it’s just amazing that M.A. was even mentioned in Spin.

    Johnny did continue with MA in Chicago, and after several line-up changes including the retirement of Wolf (whom ironically himself disappeared into the mists of Wisconsin), is still doing it as far as I know. I don’t have a problem with it now, nor did I at the time, and in fact I wish him only the best. The creative differences between Johnny and I had been growing for some time, and were bound to manifest, sooner or later. He took Morphine Angel, and I took Black Pepper Records, which I later used as a springboard to release “Wolf Age” (yes, I know, I still had some ‘age’ issues I needed to work through) for Asmodeus X. Not long after, the Houston Press did a feature on Asmo and our transition from MA, speaking with Brad and I as well as Johnny, and I think it conveys the mood of the time quite nicely: http://www.houstonpress.com/issues/1999-12-23/music.html

    A couple of years ago, Bill McCormick sent me a DVD demo of a new MA song. They sounded more agro/Marylin Mansonish, and the guys he has in the band now are really mean looking. Meaner than a Tasmanian Devil on a coke-jones. The DVD had a bonus video – MA’s first live performance ever at Duffy’s Tavern in Lincoln. It’s kind of grainy, but you can still make out the ghostly images of Mike Farrar and myself on either side of Johnny, pounding out ‘Cathedral Terror’ with all the angst that three frustrated young Lincolnites with a drum machine could muster. You can also see the cool light show that Mike talked about in his recollection. Crack Records was the company that released this DVD, and interested parties are advised to seek them out for a copy.

    End Transmission….

    You Have Been Judged Again.
