Right now, on a stage somewhere in North Carolina, Dr. Keyboardian is in the process of getting weird. Is that true? Probably not. I mean, it’s probably not happening at this second, as you’re reading this, but I suppose it could be. Universe of infinite possibilities, folks. That’s one of ’em. And you’d be missing it.
Every now and then, I like being confused, and I’ve yet to have an encounter with the Marion-based experimentalist outfit helmed by former Tasha-Yar drummer Tim Greene that didn’t qualify. Since the end of Tasha-Yar, Greene has checked in periodically with Dr. Keyboardian updates. It doesn’t always fit with what goes on around these parts — or what goes on around any parts, for that matter — but maybe I’m a sucker for songs about fishing, and maybe Dr. Keyboardian, playing in the clip below captured at a recent show at Crooked Door Coffee as Dr. Keyboardian and the Side Effects with participation in some way or other by Matt Johnson and Mike Holstein, is solidifying around an experimentalist process that I can almost begin to wrap my head around.
Well, no. Not the latter, but again, sometimes I like being confused, so here we are, where weirdness abounds. Am I even certain this is “Dang Fish?” I’m not certain of anything today. The video itself is kind of dark to allow for the video work of Projexorcism to come through, but it’s part of a whole series under the same account that made its way to the YouTubes, so if you find yourself intrigued by the curio streaming underneath this paragraph, there’s plenty more where that came from.
In the meantime, pry open your brain stem and enjoy:
