The New Suicide Revolutionary Jazz Bad

Named after Idi Amin's ceremonial brass outfit, The NSRJB played several gigs in the Los Angeles area, with a shifting set of personnel including famous artist Nate Lowman. Several rehearsal jams were held, followed by two semi-improvisational tour pieces controlled by 35mm slides - 'Overture to The Fat Elvis' - part of a larger ongoing vision - and 'Hip Replacement Surgery' a stand-alone composition controlled by the projected eye of Raymond Roussel and defaulting to a dozen turntables stuck on the climactic note from "The Impossible Dream" on the Man of La Mancha soundtrack.
