Does anybody have a link for some Cal Schenkel art featuring the group as dogs? I seem to remember a Toronto 69 poster/flyer of "the Muthies" on stage...would love to see it again, along with any other Calrarities.

Yes, do so.
Calvin is a very cool person. I have two paintings from him. And when I can find more money I don't need, I will be getting the final piece of the trinity. :mrgreen:

^^^^ Agreed. The guy is a fucking genius and I definitely need to find some spare cash to get an original from him.

I wonder if he'll personalize it:

"To my dear friend Jimmy Swaggart and all at the Texas Motel"

He'll definitely personalize it!
When I visited with him he had just finished painting "We're Only In It For the Money" and the man who commissioned him wanted to appear in the group of people. The detail was so rich; you would have thought it was a photograph.

He personalized my OSFA by putting my tattoo characters in the little white strip of paper instead of the German script. He also altered the talk balloon on my Ruben and the Jets.

:D

He put my name on both of them, in the lower left hand corner (which I didn’t ask for).
He also ad-libbed the "Talk-Balloon" on my Ruben & The Jets painting. I had wanted it to be identical to the lp cover, but his change was funny so I'm glad he changed it up a bit. :mrgreen:


My JABFLA cover is so good, damn near perfect.

thought you guys might get a kick outta this....
it's an original poster for the UBU underground film group 1969 (Sydney)
I bought it at auction years ago, but I'm prolly gonna eBay it soon...


Image

Obviously not one of Cal's
it's signed.. "Perry '69 with acknowledgement to Ruben & the Jets"

EDIT: heh...I googled it...they've actually got a site

http://bonza.rmit.edu.au/essays/2006/Jarrod%20Zlatic/Ubufilms.html

snip:
Ubu Films was formed out of a union of Albie Thoms, David Perry, Aggy Read and John Clarke that collated during the production of The Theatre of Cruelty in July 1965; a three part production providing an overview of modernist avant-garde performance work directed by Albie Thoms. His initial interests lay in the abrasive and absurdist ideas put forward by Antonin Artaud, especially the dictum; “Theatre is a delirium and is communicative,”. What took place in The Theatre of Cruelty set many of the themes Ubu would deal with over their existence; multi-media 'happenings', expanded and independent cinema productions, and themes that subverted the status-quo.Thoms, writing in 1969, remarked “the delirium attained in The Theatre of Cruelty didn't end with my abandonment of work in theatre. It continued to manifest itself in underground happenings and light shows,” (94 POLEMICS) The Theatre of Cruelty was the catalyst and impetuous for the Ubu group.

another snip from the Film & Underground music page;

http://bonza.rmit.edu.au/essays/2006/Jarrod%20Zlatic/Ubufilmsandmusic.html

Now that the radio stations have discovered underground music filmmakers might find some paying attention being paid to their soundtracks. Not that much of the music played on pop radio underground programs is very underground, but the MOTHERS OF INVENTION actually got air-time on Sydneys 2UW. Kids might like to hire Frank Elditz’s RAGA DOLL which features Frank Zappa & The Mothers doing “The Ritual Dance of the Child-Killers” And perhaps Aggy Reads BOOBS A LOT featuring THE FUGS, might be listened to instead of just being looked at. Vaughn Obern’s FRIDAY featuring the music of COUNTRY JOE & THE FISH is worth hearing as well as seeing. But when is UNDERGROUND RADIO going to play some real underground music like The Fugs “KILL FOR PEACE” or “WET DREAM OVER YOU””

(154 MUDIE)

and in Ubunews No. 15 the dramas experienced by Aggy Read and Tully on the set of ABC-TV’s Fusion television show were voiced;

“Connotations of drug-taking in the word FREAK-OUT has screwed up the ABC bosses, and the underground music show featuring THE TULLY is to be called FUSION…The series was conceived to present the incredible sounds of TULLY but each episode has one or two straight pop songs to please ABC bosses and the ‘general public’…the alienation of TV people to multi and mixed media presentations has yet to be overcome within the TV stations…the FUSION crew refused to switch out all studio lighting, hence totally eliminating the effect of the strobe…The series should make a powerful impact on Australian TV…only music and visual stimuli. Nothing but good events can result from this first manifestation of the underground on our TV sets. But from here, where? Will TV, by nature of its own monolithic structure suck all the life-blood from the underground before it hits he airwaves?”
