Randy George knows! Talk about obscure instrumentation. The Theremin is one of the earliest electronic musical instruments, and the first musical instrument played without being touched. My friend Randy has mastered the art. Kept alive and "semi-popular" these days by bands like Portishead, Devotchka, and uhh... i guess thats it.
you like eerie space music? well it doesn't get any spacier than this. except this guy has pretty much taken the theremin where no one has before' Do it up Randy!
More on Randy? just youtube "theremin." hes all over the place!

(NARANJA COUNTY) every 16th of September is the Mexican Fiesta par excellence! On this day Mexicans all over the world celebrate Mexico’s independence from Spanish rule. The Fiesta of Santa Ana will be held on the weekend of the 13th & 14th in Downtown OC. Downtown OC?? what the fuck is that?
its a city called Santa Ana.. You might not have the view of a white sandy beach or feel the fresh ocean breeze in these parts.. but a front porch, a few lawn chairs, some carne asada and a couple Coronas can work wonders!
this a place where the Lowriders lurk, the workers work, and artist actually can find inspiration. For some reason Orange County has a way of separating the Culture and Lifestyle between the North and the South sides of town. Come to Santa Ana on the weekend of Semptiembre 13th and 14th and you'll see what North Naranja County is all about.
Hello. If you've ever been to The Crosby on a 2nd, 3rd, 4th or sometimes 5th Thursday you may have either:
1.) been super weirded out because you listened to five tracks in a row that you've never heard, got bummed out and left..
2.) been super weirded out, but decide to stick around because we have Chimay for $6 on tap. one beer turns to two, ("this isn't that bad") two the three, and so on.. then you're that cat at the end of the night saying, "hey dude, man i like, love you guys man." then go next door, buy an issue of Juxtapoz, head home and give Buffalo 66 another chance.
3.) been super weirded out by everything else and resorted to The Crosby because you've been tired of the same thing, night after night, and by some strange fate you found your calling with the sounds of M.H.D.
Life in the carpool lane.. From handling the daily operations of The Crosby, To working on the next Free The Robots record, while doing small tours and gigs, a Normal life only exists on Sundays at this point. The work week is pretty fucking crazy! Thanks to you fun folks, I am still sane, still inspired, and still alive. Here are some photographs I've been taking over the past couple months. i tend to take a lot of shots as a visual diary... its just for fun.
Here are the Robot Adventures of Workin and Lurkin..
