BORED SHITLESS FEST 2001
Phi-Phenomena on Wheels
Pengo / Finkbeiner
Pengo is a three-headed avant/drone/noise/psych
hydra spawned in the toxic wasteland of Rochester
New York(a.k.a.-the Flower city). Many disparate
strains of underground sounds mesh to form the
perplexing and at times alienating music that
Pengo performs. They seem to have tapped into the
long standing outsider/freak vibe that has been a
constant in Rochester since the late 60's (See:
Armand Schaubroeck, Lydia Lunch, Coffee and Nod.)
They have been described as sounding like the
following, Sun Ra, AMM, Art Ensemble of Chicago,
Throbbing Gristle, Couch(U.S.), Suicide, NNCK,
Les Rallize De Nudes and even Rema Rema on couch
syrup. While Pengo is flattered by these
comparisons they feel that they simply sound like
Pengo. The one constant in Pengo is change, you
will never see two Pengo shows that are the same.

U can unlearn guitar
When not rallying his pitiful troops and trying
to burn his audiences as co-frontman for the
no-wave magnates, Bunnybrains, Andy Bunny is a
sweet and nice young man. In his fun and
informative classes you can unlearn guitar in as
little as five simple minutes. From the
beginning of time, humankind has attempted to
unlearn the stale riffs and lame ass solos that
have plagued it's existence. Now it's easy as
A-B-Q sharp. "Unlearning has never been so fun."
- Time-Out New York. "I never knew I could
unlearn so much in so little time." - Slash. New
album on Freedom From Records in August. Will be
available for private lessons after the show.

+ no sing. no song. no shit.
here's what Mr. Velocity Hopkins had to say
after his first experience.
"By far the big standout: Eloe Omoe.
I had thought that they were a blip bloop
electronic band but they turned out to be
the loudest ROCK band in Boston. Amazing."
...and "rock" to him is NOISE to you.
Eloe Omoe are self contained (don't need a PA)
but require enough space for a drum kit
and bass cabs, which have 60"x16" footprint and
must be circumnavigable, and 3 outlets.
They plan to coordinate with the touring bands to
have a plan to have their stuff all set to
go before the phi-phenom starts.
Doersam is the solo project of Dan Hosker, best
known for being the former guitarist of Harry
