Some Other Music Projects

•    •    •

Fred Meyer

Fred Meyer was a free music project with Lala Rivera. We played together for 7 years, near the end with Sam Garner and some recordings with Chris Gunn. We also recorded a full album which we have yet to mix. Otherwise, we made this cassette tape early on on Portland Bad Date Line. 

This soundcloud has a recording of one of our later tunes when we started making tunes out of our noise, called Johnson & Johnson. And here's a video from a live performance in 2009. 


I had the honor of playing in Los Angeles Free Music Society band and collective since 1973, Smegma, for a number of years, mostly under the name of Rogue Iniki, or Rogue iiniki, or my own. Moments from that time have been pressed on some records and cassettes, though these aren't all of them.  

With Smegma I played alongside Ju Suk Reet Meate, Oblivia, Ace Farren Ford, Dennis Duck, Vetza, Brad Hostetler, Aaron Dilloway, C. Spencer Yeh, John Wiese, Mitch Brown, Joseph Hammer, Joe Potts, Rick Potts, Madeleine Villano, Vetza, Brenna Murphy, Birch Cooper, Mike Kelley, Paul McCarthy and many more. 

Dude War (UK)

From 18-21 I lived in Brighton, England and I would get tossed and sit in my room. I didn't know very much about (shall I say it? does it even exist?) avant-garde music other than John Cage Four Walls and the softcore Koyaanisqatsi I'd picked up at Sam Goody in high school. In my aging adolescent bedroom I would check out and and record myself breaking things, making cacophony, cutting it up and pasting it together backward, etc, thinking I was really onto something. I essentially thought I invented free jazz and impossible music. Very funny. Anyway, later in that phase I got together with these guys - Alexis, Ben, and James - and we had this band, Dude War, which I think we believed was pret-ty hard. 

Typhonian Highlife

Sang on Typhonian Highlife "World of Shells", out very soon on Pacific City Sound Visions

Sean McCann

Sang on McCann's Music for Public Ensemble with Ben Baker Billington, Andrew Chalk, Kayla Cohen, Ian William Craig, Maxwell August Croy, Sarah Davachi, Hank Doyle, Matthew Erickson, Scott Foust, Rob Frye, Celia Hollander, Seth Kasselman, Graham Lambkin, Gabi Losoncy, Rob Magill, Sean McCann, Erica McLachlin, Dave McPeters, Allen Mozek, Tom James Scott, Zachary Paul Schwartz, Troy Schafer, Cameron Stallones, Nick Storring, Matthew Sullivan, Lillian Paige Walton

Eat Skull

Sang on Eat Skull's How Do I Know When to Say Goodnight

Hello Tornado 

When I lived in Paris from 2006-2007 I regularly played with Erik Minkkinen. 

He ran (and still runs) a headphone music festival called Placard for people who wanted to party all night in Paris without having to deal with noise complaints. These ended up becoming cyber festivals too, with all performances streamed online. A community of mostly electronic and experimental musicians would (I guess they probably still do) perform. Here's a video of he and I doing a placard performance, Erik in Paris and me from my bathtub in Portland. 

Luxury Prevention 

Sang on Luxury Prevention - Tenable Fort 

Butts Heartland 

Butts Heartland was Juliette Amoroso, Keira Albright, Lala Rivera, and myself. We improvised together from 2007-2008. Many recordings are stashed somewhere in Juliette's house. Thought I would mention it here because it was a formative time.
