Frank Moore's Cherotic All-Star Band plus The Refrigerator Mothers, Die Rockers Die!
The Cocaine, Los Angeles, CA
So it was our turn. It was the same structure as Friday night … except Steve E. wasn’t there because his band had a gig. So after my solo vocal, the huge percussion section that Vinnie brought joined me to get down to the beat! That section included Vinnie SPIT, Gary Ponder, Trevor Henthorn on the Surdo, Mistress Jacqueline on the Djimbe, and Hermit the Flog (Eric Baughn) of The R.M.’s on the steel drum. Then after around 5 minutes, Linda and Erika started vocal/physical erotically dancing sucking each other infusion together, then sucking me explicitly deeper and deeper rubbing into their combined body, melting into my pink chant, warm colors flowing over everything. The band expanded into a semi-circle, expanding beyond “the stage.” Steve Davis created the railroad tracks with his bass. Tomek with his accordion and clarinet rocked me deeper and deeper. Into this R.M.s’ Carl F. Off fell with his toy accordion and nonverbal chanting. R.M.s’ Jewelie Off swayed back and forth with a big grin, playing finger cymbals. There was a battery of guitarists: R.M.s’ e.loi (Jeremy Morelock) and Denise M. Owens, and from our last year L.A. tour, Leo Coronado. During the last half of the jam, Tomek and Kerri L took turns on the piano. The jam drove through various layers which people are trained to translate as THE END where people usually clap, expecting things to wrap-up…not expecting multiple orgasms! The timing of our jams is rooted within the erotic dance/reality. Linda, Erika, Steve, Tomek, Vinnie, Jacqueline, and Gary understood this, pushing pass artificial “ends” to hidden lava! When Linda and Erika were cuddling with the band and the audience, I was playing Jacqueline’s body as a sexy drum! People in the audience from the other bands were playing their instruments.
After the jam, Jewelie said it felt like everybody in the band were lifelong friends, treating one another tenderly, even when “in reality” we just met. The music flowed out of this. Another R.M. player said he felt that he just found his tribe he lost a long, long time ago. Powerful stuff!
