Shalom and Aloha Fen-heads, 'Wick-heads, Saints and Sinners!
Well, good news/bad news!
-The Bad News? The Queen of the Ghouls has literally ripped
my heart from my chest and eaten it before my very own eyes! The Good News? It's only a movie. One I'm starring in with Devon Sawa, Kelly Hu, Karen Maxwell and Dawn Olivieri. It's called "Devil's Den", and it's a sweet little love story about flesh-eating ghouls, directed by the great Jeff Burr. Even better, The Fenwicks have composed the title song for the flick. We call it: "Devil's Den (Too Dumb to Die)" and you can hear it now by clicking this:
Wanna hear even more new Fenwick music? How about our ditty about the Supreme Court's supremely misguided decision on "Eminent Domain"? Hear your very own "Objectivist Bob Dylan" sing "Preeminent Domain", just click on this:
-Speaking of me... (Sorry, but someone has to...) Wanna see this whack-job act across from the puppet they call "the Brando of Muppets", Mr. Big Bird himself? Dat's right- hanging with "The Bird" (he lets me call him "The Bird") on the "Sesame Street"... Come bear witness on our newly revamped and revised "Schub in Film" page, with clips of this freak on "Wanted", "E-Ring", "Caught", "NYPD Blue" and much too much more...
-Our "Golden Globe" Boy!:
So okay.... Major Mazel Tovs must now go out to our hero and Comrade, (and mine and Jim's old NYU roomie, Mr. Philip Seymour Hoffman). The man has been nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Actor, as Capote, in "Capote", directed by our other "Brother from Another Mother", (and first manager), Mr. Bennett Miller!! Duuuuuuuuude!!!
So pssst... Hey, um, wanna hear Mr. Philip Seymour Hoffman singing with us monkey-boys, back in the debauched late 80s? Well you can! On our "Multimedia Page". It ain't pretty... Stay calm, and click this, (ya gotta scroll down a bit once ya get there...):
-Now, people, we all know, that far and away, the best movie of the year is Bennett Miller's directorial debut "Capote", true? Of course true! But ya wanna see what Mr. Miller was doing before the world finally recognized his genius? Come see the video that started it all- Bennett Miller's video for our song "Another Deadly Mother". We
were all 22, broke and insane... Bennett Miller convinced us to let him shoot a video, and the thing friggin' changed the course of our lives, literally.... This is the video I handed to Lynyrd Skynyrd's Artimus Pyle while I was still shlepping luggage at the Omni Park Central Hotel in NYC... Artimus watches Bennett's video, flies Jim and me to Jacksonville, and the next thing ya know we're opening for "Foreigner" and Billy Squier in Metro Park... See this destiny changing video on our "Multimedia" page (again ya gotsta scroll down a little bit once get there):
-Our "Hall of Famer": And now speaking of Artimus Pyle, (our founder and permanent Patron Saint), the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has finally done it's job and done justice! Lynyrd Skynyrd will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in March!! Major Mazel Tovs must now go out to Artie!!!! (Betya a member of Skynyrd has never been
wished Mazel Tov before...) Artie, this is loooong overdue!!! So wanna hear this man, one of rock's most legendary drummers, play drums with your friendly neighborhood Fenwicks? Well, you can! It's oh so easy... Simply click on this, go to our "Multimedia Page" and subject yourself to our truly demented cover of Jimi Hendrix's "Manic Depression", with Mr. Pyle himself banging the bangables! (once again, you gotta scroll down a bit):
-Oh, um, just in time for the holidays! Our 2nd CD "eudaimonia" is now almost officially sold out! From what I understand, there are exactly 54 copies left on planet Earth (there may be some on Mars...) Here's what reviewer G. Murray Thomas of "The Independent" had to say about this (as-of-now) limited disc: "What is this? Yiddish ska? From the opening cries of "L'chayim" over a hyper reggae beat, it is obvious that The Fenwicks are not a normal band. Blending punk, ska, pop and klezmer, they sound like something you'd hear at a mutant cross-cultural wedding. Despite their stylistic schizophrenia, The Fenwicks are a band with a message. "Eudaimonia", the title of the album, is defined (in the liner notes) as "1. The moral purpose of life: one's own happiness. 2. A state of fundamental enduring joy, which proceeds from the achievement of one's values." This theme is referred to again and again in the lyrics, in many guises. The message is to enjoy one's life, but not through a hedonistic pursuit of pleasures, but through honesty and integrity in love and joy. Again and again the songs ask you to live with integrity, love with sincerity, and act to make your life better. For the most part, this is not an album of deadly seriousness. The Fenwicks sing and perform with the joy they promote. The music is full of surprises and tasty touches, and the lyrics brim with little jokes and asides. The Fenwicks promote joy both in theory and in practice"...
So, if ya don't got it, get it now, before it slips into the abyss! Buy The Fenwicks "eudaimonia" for 10 bucks, by clicking this!:
