From 2001 to 2005 I had the pleasure and privilege of being a part of what John Wyman (the then head honcho at Media Kitchen) would call “The Content Incubation Society”. As a regular client at Media Kitchen Studio, Gardena, L.A. (producing one album, one EP and one single) I would come to know the crew that ran this remarkable studio and rehearsal space namely, John Wyman (producer/mastering engineer), John “Irvo” Irvine (producer/engineer) and the late, great Bill Krodell (He was an engineer/producer for area studios such as Pendragon, Jet City and Media Kitchen. He worked with bands such as Guns N’ Roses, Seinsfeld, Pennywise and Motörhead. He also recorded oprea singers, rap artists, gospel choirs and even relaxation therapists!) Irvo would regularly organise rehearsals, recordings and the occasional happening (which would eventually come under the name of Irvopalooza) The video document you see before you now is a casual, surreal, chaotic and non-professional VHS taping of one such happening that was streamed live on the night onto the internet via a PC cambot. The line-up that evening also featured a local band called The Rolling Blackouts (which are not included here but make up part of the audience) I had no control over the quality of the taping. Indeed, as you will see the whole evening was somewhat unhinged (including my performance) The cameraman was unknown to me and is sadly uncredited. The performance starts at 7:23 mins, so if you wish to fast forward past some experimental cut out puppetry, Irvo stopping hipster art nerds nailing up canvas onto the pristine Media Kitchen wall with the now legendary “Hey, brainiacs!!!” intervention and bizarre L.A. audience banter, then please do so. The previous year I had released my debut album ‘Music For Your Head’. The tracks featured here are from that recording and are as follows: 1 – But He Didn’t Know What He Wanted. 2 – Label. 3 – Sticky Glyph. 4 – New/Old. 5 – You Are My Sin. Since this recording many things have changed or passed; my weird postage stamp moustache, the orange shiny jacket and the great Bill Krodell. Many thanks go to Adrian Finn at The Great Bear for his migration of the VHS tape to digital. I would also like to thank the two John’s for their inspirational support and friendship. This video is dedicated to the memory of Bill Krodell.
