Mutoid Waste Co. in Oz: Carhenge at Confest

November 30th, 2010 by Andrzej Mutoid Waste Co. in Oz: Carhenge at Confest

On NYE 1990/91 I found myself leading 3000 people from the top of Carhenge in a pagan drumming frenzy under a full moon and in the midst of a huge tropical thunder and lightning storm. It was definitely a peak life experience. And possibly the closest I will ever come to a rock star moment. […]

Mutoid Waste Co. Pt 2: Sultans Of Scrap

November 19th, 2010 by Andrzej Mutoid Waste Co. Pt 2: Sultans Of Scrap

I used to be a Mutoid. So did Joe Rush. But then again, Joe started the Mutoid Waste Co., so it's a lot harder for him to say he used to be a Mutoid. And although he walked away for a while, he did find his way back to the heart of what he started. […]

Boom Boom: Here Come The Satellites

October 21st, 2010 by Andrzej Boom Boom: Here Come The Satellites

"Tonight, I saw the future of Rock". Is a famous quote by Jon Landau about Bruce Springsteen. Before he became Springsteen's manager. In 2010 it could be equally applied to Boom Boom Satellites. Different decade, different century. Different music for a different generation. Bruce Springsteen, for all his genuine genius was never going to be […]

Lovett: Stepping sideways into the spotlight

October 15th, 2010 by Andrzej Lovett: Stepping sideways into the spotlight

A few weeks ago a friend of mine, Eirene, who now works for Musebox PR company sent me a link to music by some guy I'd never heard of called Ben Lovett. I was busy at the time and didn't get around to listening to it. When I spoke to her she insisted I needed […]

Automatic Loveletter Part 2: Live & Loving It

October 11th, 2010 by Andrzej Automatic Loveletter Part 2: Live & Loving It

Those of you who follow this will know that I wrote about Automatic Loveletter a couple of months ago when I first started this blog. At that time I had just seen Juliet & Tommy Simms perform an acoustic show at Angels & Kings in the East Village and so I wrote about the photo […]

The Boxer Rebellion: Winning Hearts and Minds

September 30th, 2010 by Andrzej The Boxer Rebellion: Winning Hearts and Minds

I first met The Boxer Rebellion at Notting Hills Arts Club in London when I was hanging out there a lot in 2005.  It was a Wednesday night, so it was Alan McGee's Death Disco night. They'd just played a great set to about 100 people, maybe less. Sounding like a tough bastard child of […]

Theresa Byrnes: Inspiration and Art (in a wheelchair)

September 15th, 2010 by Andrzej Theresa Byrnes: Inspiration and Art (in a wheelchair)

Theresa Byrnes lives her physical life in a wheelchair. She is not defined by that wheelchair, but it's where she spends most of her physical time. As somebody who doesn't live in a wheelchair, I find it hard to think of living such a life. But Theresa bears it with excellent humour and I find […]

Burning Man Xtra: Origins: Mutoid Waste Co.

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Burning Man Xtra: Origins: Mutoid Waste Co.

So, given that I devoted last week to Burning Man, I feel it's about time to cover what I consider to be it's ancestors. The most obvious in America has to be Survival Research Lab (SRL) which was started in 1978 by Mark Pauline in San Francisco. That particular group deserves it's own blog, which […]

Burning Man Day 7: The Temple Burns

September 10th, 2010 by Andrzej Burning Man Day 7: The Temple Burns

Now the Temple is something truly special. Some would say Magical. Certainly Spiritual. The Sacred Heart of Black Rock City, the Temple first appeared at Burning Man in 2000 when it was built by San Francisco artist David Best as a Memorial for a close friend who had died. Burning Man started funding the Temple […]
