About Lost in the Grooves:
‘Lost in the Grooves - Scram’s capricious guide to the music you missed’ Kim Cooper and David Smay (Ed.), Routledge, 2005 For the past 12 years, the L.A.-based magazine Scram has championed the work of musicians who might otherwise fly beneath the mainstream critical
radar. Here, Scram editrix Cooper and longtime contributor Smay display the sense of fun that distinguished their previous collection 'Bubblegum Music Is the Naked Truth,' in an immensely entertaining, informative and sometimes exasperating encyclopaedia, in which more than 75 contributors offer over 250 entries (a series of "miniature love letters") about their favourite artists and albums. With praise offered for works by Captain Beefheart alongside the Cowsills, no single genre or artist is considered outside the sphere of the book’s
interests.
About The Orgone Box:
Upon a solid framework of Beatles inspired melodic inventiveness, The Orgone Box A.K.A Rick Corcoran, adds layers of pulsing psychedelia, new wave dynamism and a dazzling overlay of classic blazing-guitar rock. Most renowned for the classic 1994 EP Judy Over the Rainbow
(Chrysalis), the recent release of no less than three Orgone Box collections have helped to finally secure the OB’s rightful place in the definitive history of British guitar pop. Performing all new melancholic material alongside radically different versions of Orgone Box classics, this rare live appearance from Rick and friends will be a truly special event to behold.
