Well what a nifty little folder we have here! Can't wait to dig into everyone's music and hear what's cookin'...
Plenty of streaming tunes on both, where you can sample tracks from our new album "Euphobia" as well as odds and ends, rough demos, and whatnot. New album, you say? You betcha, and there's even some loose GD connections (gonna stretch here) in that our brother Mark Daly sits in on mandolin on a few tracks. Mark is buds with Grisman and has worked with tons of mentionables, and if you check out his page you'll see pics of him rafting down in Costa Rica not long ago with ol' Bill Kreutzmann. DNCer Mike Sokolowski also plays on a track (and you should check out his wonderful music, too).
You can find our stuff on iTunes and lots of other outlets, but if you order the CD via our website (only $9.99!) we'll toss in a free bonus disc and free shipping w/in the U.S. WHATABAHGAIN! You're in Europe? Then the USD/EU rate makes the album practically free for you peeps.... act today! Operators are standing by!
P.S.- the subject line I stole from an alt-paper's piece on us, which made us chuckle. You can find it and other coverage on the site, too
I really enjoy reading your lyrics they really seem like poetry more than lyrics to me. Well done!
This is Joan Jett's Rabbit - I used to post here earlier before the recent big change. You should check out my web page and download my songs. My fantacy is that young kids will listen to my music while playing hookey and going up to the mountains for a snow adventure, etc. So . . . enjoy - and I hope more Deadheads listen to these Dead-inspired demos.
Here's the link for the tunes:
‘Angel headed hipsters’ and ‘holy barbarians’ arise, Venice Gas House Trolley is on the tracks and headed back to you! In a time when spoken word and music performance is rapidly taking shape as a popular form of entertainment, Venice Gas House Trolley stands poised to stake their claim at the forefront of new musical takes on the oldest school around. This three-piece Beat Freak group was formed in Madison, WI out of respect for the Venice West Beat Poetry Scene that flourished in Southern California. The group features Adam Gregory Pergament, a Madison Area Music Award Finalist for Best Artist. At once visceral, exciting, cool and jazzy, the vibe appeals to audiences ranging from finger-snapping cool cats to bohos looking for the next thing in words and music. For more on Venice Gas House Trolley please check out: www.flowpoetry.com. or www.myspace.com/flowpoetry.
Adam Gregory Pergament, a two-time finalist for Best Artist (Other) in the First Annual Madison WI Area Music Awards, is a Spoken Word performer who has bridged the gap between poetry and music. His dynamic style of Rock and Fire Flowpoetry combines rhythm, musicality, and a highly condensed depth of poetic language. His delivery on stage makes him one of the most unique and riveting performers on the Midwestern musical and artistic landscape. Adam speaks shamanically through poems of Asian Gods and Goddesses, tells Cowboy stories of the American Wild West and the Railroad Age, and poetically rants and rages about both Love and War. In 2006, he was appointed as the first ever "Poet-In-Residence" at The King Club, Madison, WI`s premier live music dance club. He has performed over 500 times in the USA with Rock and Roll bands, Jazz musicians, and as a solo poet.
His current projects include Venice Gas House Trolley (a "Beat Freak" trio consisting of voice, double bass, and percussion) and Rock and Fire Flowpoetry (spoken word with vocal effects, loops, guitar and electric bass). Over the past two years, he led and taught Chime Collective Big Band weekly improvised free flow musical and poetic workshops at The Madison WI Center For Creative And Cultural Arts. In previous incarnations, Adam has played catcher for the University of Minnesota Baseball team, spent five years backpacking throughout Asia and India, earned a Master of Arts Degree in Languages and Cultures of Asia and studied for seven years in the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Buddhist Studies Ph.D program. He holds a black belt in Kendo (the art of the Samurai swordsman). He has performed with such Jazz notables as Hanah Jon Taylor (Chicago’s Artists For The Advancement of Creative Music) and Vincent Davis (Roscoe Mitchell Quartet). He has opened shows for The Steve Kimock Band, Cornmeal, Groovatron, Buck 65, and Claude Coleman, Jr of Ween. He has also appeared on festival billings with The Jerry Garcia Band and Indigenous.
