That's terrible. Get Well, Gary Lucas.
And go buy the new Fast 'n' Bulbous record, it is fantastic. Some of Gary's most smoking electric guitar work on record. Totally tears it up for nearly the entire length of the cd.

Dear promoter,

we just received information about a tragic incident: yesterday evening Gary Lucas walking in the streets of Montreal on his way to a concert, slipped on the icy sidewalk, fell and broke his arm; it´s not just a simple fracture, but a complicated, serious injury.
This is a real tragedy and may have a serious impact on Gary´s further career as a musician.
We are still under the shock of this message. Nevertheless we must take action immediately. Phillip Johnston and the rest of the band would be ready and willing to come to Europe to do the tour that is scheduled to start next week. Musically they´d do their very best and would make the music happen in the spirit of Captain Beefheart and Gary Lucas!!!

A message from Phillip Johnston, co-leader of Fast 'n' Bulbous:

Gary will not be appearing. Unfortunately he will have to lay off playing for a while. But he will make a full recovery. It's not yet clear how long he'll be out of action, but he can't make the tour. He's very bummed about it!

We are still planning to do the tour, with Pat Irwin on guitar. We are still waiting to hear resolution of all the gigs, as some promoters want to cancel the gigs if Gary is not able to play. However, Gary has urged us to do the tour, and we are working very hard to get Pat in shape. I think he's going to do great.

So, as far as I know, it is still in limbo, but we hope to do all of the gigs. If too many promoters cancel, we of course will have to cancel, but that is not our wish. While Gary is undoubtedly the star soloist of the band, there are a lot of other good reasons to see Fast 'N' Bulbous: the arrangements, the many other formidable musicians in the band, who are quite well-known and well-regarded in their own right, and the great music of Captain Beefheart. Also, as I live in Australia and am not able to come north very often, I can't say when the band will be able to perform live again. Possibly someday after Gary's recovery, but also possibly never. It's all hypothetical. But it's possible that this could be the last chance to hear the band live in any form.

So I am urging the promoters not to cancel us.

I hope you can spread the word, and if any fans are in areas near the venues and want to come, please ask them to contact the venues and show support. It would mean a lot to us, and to Gary.

Thanks for your interest and support! And thank to those who are interested in our music!

Phillip

This is one of them called Jedwabne:

I used a friends CD of Those Dummy Accordions once, not to listen too, but to wipe my ASS with. Since it didn't achieve the quality of shitty toilet paper I throw them in the trash were they belonged. I wanted to compensate him for them, but he said I had done the right thing so he paid me!

Diesey is a real he-man. Just my type! Didn't you know Frank Zappa has a huge gay following? Oooo! I'm trembling at the thought.

Tonight! Club Rectum! Bring your shovel.
