Created by Reverend Al of the Los Angeles Cacophony Society, The Art of Bleeding produces ego-destabilizing programs on safety and medical education out of an actual ambulance. This time the lovely latex clad nurses will be joined by Chuckles Klown and other cartoon characters in an demonstration of needle safety for both live and video presentation. Often staged from an actual ambulance, our performances utilize a perturbing mix of cartoonish costumes, puppets, vintage educational films, animation, and thinly veiled medical fetishism to create a sort of “paramedical funhouse.” Find out more at www.artofbleeding.com
On his way to Santa Ana, Charles Linvill parked his Asscar (that would be a car decorated with dog asses) overnight in front of the Motel 6 in Redding. The next morning, Asscar was completely covered in the motels finest linen due to numerous complaints. The maid delegation that met Charles at the car said they would pray for him. Charles reported improved gas mileage after their meeting.
The Fancy Space People
Can a ridiculously attired Los Angeles Glitter rock space cult, channeling cryptic messages from Fancy Space really save the Earth and usher in a new Golden Age? The Fancy Space People began when the unlikely duo of Germs drummer Don Bolles and quirky solo chanteuse No-Ra Keyes started receiving communications from invisible entities claiming to be from “Fancy Space,” asking them to present their leaders’ (presumably) benevolent messages to the people of Earth, secreted within neo-classic rock tunes. Told that they were chosen not so much for any musical talent they might possess, but more because they would fit into the elaborate space outfits, Don and Nora, neither of whom had much going on at the time, readily agreed. Their songs range from moody Mellotron space hymns to Glitter Rock stompers, Snow Pop to Psychedelic Prog Epics, 60s Girl Group to 70s Krautrock, and remind one of T Rex, Bowie, Abba, Sparks, and even Amon Duul II.
