surgery for arthur linndrum

Ken and Georgina are back from a quick trip to the USA and all the craziness there surrounding the death of Michael Jackson. The trip also included a very quick visit to Mutato Muzika, essentially the headquarters for DEVO. Arthur Linndrum made the trip as well for some repair work and modification, courtesy of probably the world's most famous and respected tech guy, Bruce Forat of Forat Electronics (photo at left - Bruce, Ken and Arthur Linndrum).

Bruce has worked on Linn equipment for a huge roster of famous artists, including Giorgio Moroder, Blondie, Prince, Madonna, all of the various Jackson incarnations including Michael and Janet, Def Leppard, Jam & Lewis - and many, many more. Bruce was kind enough to share a few interesting stories about some of those artists, which I probably shouldn't put into print here - you'll have to ask me at the next gig.

Speaking of which, Tycho is set for a run of shows at Brisbane's legendary Ric's Bar, 321 Brunswick Street Fortitude Valley. The first show is scheduled for Thursday August 13th, as always at Ric's entry will be free. Further details including support act and times will be posted here as soon as they are available.
