This week is a very special edition of Video Naturalismo. I was sent the following e-mail earlier in the week and I simply have to do something to help. I have always had a soft spot for ? and the Mysterians, namely the mystical front man ? whose history and martian identity has always amused me. Furthermore, I love dogs (here’s the type I hope to be getting soon, so noble looking) so I really have no choice but to try and get the word out about the benefit show for him tonight.
“GENESIS P-ORRIDGE & PSCYCICDELIC FRIENDS! to perform at the benefit for Question Mark of ? + The Mysterians
Wednesday, May 23rd 2007.
431 W 16th Street NYC.For info go to:http://www.highlineballroom.com/bio.php?id=57…
? & the Mysterians’ singer known as “?”..had a fire. It destroyed his entire house. He lost EVERYTHING! All
his archives, photos since 60’s, master tapes, costumes, memorabilia. AND all his personal stuff. These days he was breeding dogs to make a living. His dogs all died too. So he only has what he was wearing. No savings. No insurance.
Genesis P-Orridge had brought him to the Royal Festival Hall in 1999 so he asked for Gen’s support and coming to ?’s rescue P-ORRIDGE & PSCYCICDELIC FRIENDS! will be performing at a special benefit concert this Wed.
It’d be greatly appreciated if you could advance this show in any way shape or form!”
