I’m hung over from last
night’s gig at Kimo’s. The
Nude Green Orgy of Lying Leprechauns turned out to be exactly what
happened. Very orgiastic, very orgasmic, nude bodies explicitly rubbing
melting together under ever-changing colors, slides of bodies projected
on nude skin under strobes …. reality became molten. It began
with me sitting on the stage nude alone, singing DANNY BOY with Jackie
Then, as everything got brightly surreal, the ALL-STARS flooded onto
the stage. Gio drummed passions magical trances, the lusty heart.
Dr. Oblivious and Barb Golden were on the keyboards, weaving DANNY
into the flowing nonlinear sound ocean. Andy Slow Poisoner blew his
sousaphone, and every once in awhile got seduced to let out madman
vocals, matching intense Michael Peppe’s scat screeching. The
weird green-skinned naked creature Fluffgrrl Bob played a toy whistle … and
played with himself…and sucked me as always …all in the
realm of funhouse innocence. Right after we got to the club, I saw
this black guy packing away his sax. Of course I asked him to be
part of the All-Stars. He turned out to be an amazing jazz player,
R. Dyer. His sax melted with the wailing trombone of Toyoji Tomita.
It was fun flying jamming vocally with horns floating within absolute
freedom. At the center of the jam, the engine under the hood was
Linda in just ribbon, Kirsten in just green leaves, and me just in
dancing rubbing together intimately extremely sexual explicit fusing
into something else warmly human, releasing arousal of being enough
together through singing, legs open wide going right in every body
deep, expanding throughout the jam, the band, and the audience, many
of whom had to lie down, knowing that you never leave the ritual
feast table until it’s finished, although it may last for days.
Somehow it ended up with me again singing DANNY BOY as Linda and
kicked up their heels in the chorus line.
It was a long, satisfying journey. Afterward we were saying it was
our “best” club jam. Of course we always say that. But
Thanks, Boom, for giving us a musical home at Kimo’s!
