The WFMU Record Fair in NYC is this weekend! I got some goodies last night including the live 13th Floor Elevators lp from ’66 and an original German pressing of Gun. Nice. Sister Jen Black and I had a groovy time digging for vinyl treasures…
This Tuesday night October 14th Michael Chapman and Jack Rose will play at the NNCK space in Harlem. After ten years of a myriad of legendary underground musicians passing through its doorway the Hint House will soon be no more, so please join us for this event…
The Chapman/Rose tour marks Michael’s third tour in the US in thirty years! Mark Orleans will join Jack Rose on slide guitar and special guest Bridget St. John will play with Michael Chapman and perform a few of her own songs. Prior to the music will be a screening of short films by Theo Angell, Todd Ledford and selected scenes from my Michael Chapman biopic Sea of Wine. Films start at 9pm, music will follow. Hope to see you then.
Hint House 638 w. 131st st. between Broadway and Hudson River

Bruce Metcalf has dedicated almost forty years of his life to the creation and historiography of American Studio Craft. He makes his exquisite jewelry with the utmost care and precision. On average most of the pieces take two months to create, whereas some take years before he perfects the final nuances.

Fantastic news, English guitarman Michael Chapman and Fahey-esque Jack Rose begin their east coast this weekend! Also just in time for the tour is the release of Michael’s new album Time Passed and Time Passing. Arik Roper, Keith NNCK and I all contributed to the cover art. Thanks to John Allen for getting this album out into the world. Time Passed and Time Passing will be available for purchase in the coming weeks from Other Music, emusic, itunes and Fusetron.
If your coming to the Hint House jam in NYC I will be showing a couple of selected scenes from my upcoming short documentary about Michael Chapman called Fully Qualified Survivor. Above is a clip of Michael Chapman on German television in 1975. So good…
