Rijeka

Just got word from my man Sveto in Rijeka, Croatia that the New Year’s Eve gig is on for me at his club, Peek and Poke. Rijeka was an excellent town when tuxedomoon was there this summer. I look forward to this.

Soundcloud

I discovered soundcloud today, so I have been uploading my fingers to the bone. Got a whole mess of tracks up there now. I guess I just like that “waveform” player they got.

Interview with BLR

This is an unusually wide-ranging interview I did earlier in 2011 with Raphael Smarzoch for the Deutschland Funk radio program “Corso”, recorded by me from a Skype conversation. In it, I speak of the origins of Tuxedomoon, the late’ 70’s scene in San Francisco, the history of San Francisco, gay surrealism, punk rock, the Mabuhay Gardens, meditation, the creative tension in Tuxedomoon, man’s place in the universe and on and on and ever anon. Lend me an ear.

Pueblo City Limits

I was so proud to be included in this woman’s blog. She writes about the wonderful music scene in Pueblo, Colorado (my home town) in the 60’s and 70’s. Here is her entry about me and the salient bio information it contains.

Pueblo City Limits: Blaine ReiningerLast year I was contacted by a reader of this blog, who told me that I should contact Blaine Reininger, the talented multi-instrumentalist, and one of the founders of Tuxedomoon. COMING NEXT POST: Solve The Mystery – Jack Shipley and the Blue Ridge Boys

Falling Infinities (with mp3)

In 1995, I collaborated with 2 DJ’s from Cologne and Frankfurt, Dr. Atmo and Ingo Schnorrenberg in the studio of producer Michael Pagenstedt. We had a series of enjoyable sessions which resulted in the CD and vinyl releases “Uvoii, sound of Heaven” for Pete Namlook’s legendary Fax Records and  “Falling Infinities–Kingdom of Dreams.” for Sony’s Dance Pool label.

“Cadillac Nights” is one of my favorites from that effort.

Here is the vinyl LP which I have listed for sale on EBAY.

Blaine L. Reininger and Falling Infinities Kingdom of DreamsFalling Infinities was a 1995 project embarked upon by Blaine L. Reininger together with Cologne DJ's and producers Dr. Atmo (Amir Abadi), Ingo Schnorrenberg and producer Michael Pagenstedt. The 5 songs on this double 12" EP were issued in 1996 by Dance Pool, a side label of Sony.

waitin for my camera

I have sold over 300 euros of my theatre and dance album now, so I went ahead and bought a new camera online to celebrate “cyber monday”. in case you missed it, cyber monday is a new marketing strategem introduced by online retailers to perk up sales. it is on the monday after “black friday” which are sales held on the friday after thanksgiving. you may have read how shoppers stabbed and pepper sprayed one another in a fevered consumer rut attempting to get them some cheap merchandise.
I got a new sony snapshot camera for over 100 euros less than it costs around here. It was 149 euros. sony dsc wx9.   I await its arrival with the  anticipation of an 1890’s hillbilly sitting in his outhouse with his Sears catalog a-waitin’ on his new pump handle. Or his new mail order bride.
Now, if the damn Greek post will co-operate and deliver it unto me (not 100% sure), everything will be okay.
