what happened to doot???
Posted: Feb 21, 2006 1:19 am
we added too many people. I wanted Doot to be a two-piece.

And Richard "Fucking" Martin missed practice, went home, started jamming along to Atomic Rooster, came back to practice, made us cover Atomic Rooster, and proclaimed us "SONS OF THUNDER." Sounded good to me.

I honestly meant to post that message on the other thread about these shows, but I haven't been able to delete this to repost it there for some reason

Posted: Feb 21, 2006 4:21 am
fuck, richard needs to play in EVERY band!

All right, I can get behind that sentiment.
Posted: Feb 21, 2006 4:23 am
he ganked up the joint for real, dude.

Man there's this thing he does. Man, you just gotta hear it. Just ask him to do that thing. He'll know what you're talking about. Or maybe he won't, but I bet he'll make something up.

Well you can't really predict the future. I didn't set any times for anything but I think that those times are a good vision. But honestly, I really don't ever know exactly what is going to happen, ever . If that was an actual schedule that you posted that people will follow and be on time then i would be emancipated from my fear of insecurity. Insecurity from all of the doubtful things in this life. That simply is too much for the world to present. Instability is my crutch. I am prepared to walk threw life limping, but yet
I will be aware that there are those who can move freely in life without support, but they could also be late to the show even if they run. It's not the distance of travel, but when you plan to leave. Some people never leave themselves and never get where they are going. If everyone will just remember, Pho Hoa Binh is life. And there is nothing else. There shall be no other event in life besides living. You will be born when the Sons of Thunder dawn upon the stage we call life and rock you like the storms with lighting and hammers. The sacred goat of love will ram you over and over one Kaz at a time as you grow and transcend into energy. Then the beat of the love you experienced will be recorded onto the stars--each point in the sky represents a bit of data for the songs of death that supersede you into the last dark day of your death, the final black Sunday before my only begotten son's Resurrection and rebirth. Then all doubt of my omnipotence will be filtered and you will all follow me and my disciples around 10 or 10 thirty this night.

if by that, you mean that you might need some extra time to get the VIP area ready, by all means, open doors whenever everything is set.
Posted: Feb 24, 2006 7:55 pm

I want to rent out Pho Hoa Binhs light show for all of our shows.

There was yet another encore in my bathroom around 4 in the morning. I had to sleep on the couch so I didn't barf of the baby.
Posted: Feb 25, 2006 9:41 pm

Posted: Feb 25, 2006 11:07 pm
Full report? Stuff that legends are made of, my friends. Truly the substance that renders the dreams, despairs, and epiphonies of a VH1 "Behind the Music" or great ABC After School Special.

This "Madison and Avalon World Tour" of the Sons of Thunder began it's inaugural flight to greatness at a prompt 10:30. Unfortunately, this reporter can't claim to be one of the original fans from back in the old days, because I got there at about 10:45. This didn't stop me later, however from bragging to some folks who got there after me "Yeah, they were really great when you saw 'em, but you should have heard them at 11:00."
Loud and truly thunderous, the arrangements summoned up and tested the skillz each member to fill a musical skeleton with the meat of improv. Richard Martin, a veritable McGyver of music instruments, electronics, and contraptions, passively lead the supergroup on vocals and Banjitar. The drummer was excellent, and I heard he was found and picked up for the band in swaddling cloth at Yarbourough's Music Drum Dept., "kicking out some sweet Metallica fills" between the hours of 2-6 everyday. Joe T, of Rat Traps and "outjjumps kangaroos" fame, accompanied on guitar, and seemed to know how the songs went. Sam (who is taking a break from trying to re-form Hanoi Rocks and studio work with Mangina) took an active role in orchestrating the overall sound and time of the songs on bass wearing a white, puffy, long-sleeved shirt that couldn't seem to hide the pain and suffering inside. Also, some guy named Eric (who was in some band from the nineties, apparently, and had a minor hit in Nepal from his solo recording "Anybody Seen My Neighbor's Goat?") played some guitar and sang some.
These masters of music railed and reigned Pho Hoa Bin amid freshly rolled eggrolls, against a back drop of psychedelic lights and green laser beams. This wave of heavy and loud would have almost made me pass out, but I got distracted with my beer and contmplated looking directly at the laser beams for free eye surgery. It sounded like Capt. Beefheart sat in with Blue Oyster Cult in their darkest moments. The sonic onslaught culminated in a dizzying finish that I can tell you knocked everyone in the room to the floor, cowering, but I think I just made that up.
After the set, equipment was moved to cars, where I had an opportunity to talk to the band. They were huddled together in High-Five mode, and I congratulated them on a stellar performance. In unison, they all said "Of course it was, moron" and looked at the night sky. Then that Eric guy gave me the very last promotional CD, hand-crafted in magic marker "The Sons of Thunder". My thoughts immediately went to E-bay. I stepped back a bit, just to observe, and witnessed the gruesome details of "the break-up". Eric and Sam were having words. One thing led to another and eventually, before blows were bestowed, Eric shouted "That's it, Sam! You're out of the band!" I shed a tear. And by tear, I mean I went inside and plopped down another $2.50 for a beer and 50 cent tip.
Kazalok was pretty amazing. I confess, I don't think I have ever seen an electric autoharp. The Tambourene Girl and Drummer banged out a beat for the really tall, really skinny guitar player to undress to.
When their set was over, someone played the Macarena. And someone else turned it up really loud. And that's where I found Sam outside. He had been drinking. I pointed this out to him with my fourth beer bottle. He reminisced about the old days, that he was happier now to be living a domesticated life, he didn't miss the rock and roll lifestyle or being a Son of Thunder, and something else, but I had already walked away from him while he was still talking. As if, loser.
I only got to see the first three or four songs by Datadrums. I would have liked to hear Chuck's guitar and vocals a little louder, but I must say, I was genuinely impressed by some of their songs complexities. Bass player and Keyboardist were running circles around each other, and Chucks chords were furious and fast, but I couldn't hear him as well for some reason.
I went out side, and Sam was still talking. Yadda, yadda, yadda, maybe we'll do it again someday, yadda, yadda, I miss those guys, yadda, yadda...
And then, as if by some magic, Joe T came walking briskly past with equipment. "C'mon, man, we're playing Murphys!"
Wha? Could this be true? A reunion show?
Sam was stil talking, but I had already crossed the street to invesitgate. Indeed. It was on, and $5.00 was given to the doorman. I wandered in and out of the pub, speaking to old friends about the Sons of Thunder in their glory days. No one could believe this was happening. It was like "The Lizard King" had come back from the grave, and he wasn't event fat. Excitement filled the air. And by excitement, I mean more beer had been opened.
I was talking over the concept of a Sitar/mandolin band (sort of a East meets East Tennessee project) with Hemant when they took the stage. I commented to Hemant "Man, look at Sam. His hair is so white and long. Has it really been this long? So sad." Hemant informed me it was Miss Linda's wig. "Oh." I said.
This show was backed with rocking and improv as well, but with some strange new element. It was as if some songs were out of tune or out of time, and a few miscues were beset. I believe this is called "Jazz", though, and my music snob friends and I recognize "syncopation" when we hear it.
It went on and on and on, until they finished with the Sons of Thunder theme song. This rousing number had everyone on their feet (because some were leaving), and every person sang loudly to the chorus "SONS OF THUNDER!!!" And by everyone, I mean I drunkenly ran over to the microphone and yelled into it at the wrong part.

Truly, last night will live forever in the anals of Memphis Music History.

Memphis Flyer, you may feel free to re-print this excellent Rock n' Roll review.

Those eggrolls were hot.

I thought Kazalok was great! And the Preachers Kids were probably the best I had ever seen them.

Missed the wig.
