At the heart of this tour is the 3 day stand at H.R. in Chinatown, LA, where 3 Moons will be performing as the house orchestra for a series of ceremonial invocations of the planetary correspondences for the days of the week which is being worked by Ossian and La Porsha. Moon (Monday), Mars (Tuesday), and Mercury (Wednesday). Each night the music performed will correspond to scales and modes associated with these daily forces by ancient Greek musical philosophers such as Aristides Quintilianus and Ptolemy.
ANDY NEUBAUER (Impractical Cockpit, Ancestral Diet) & JEFFERSON ZURNA (3 Moons) present "WEEPING WINDOWS" exotic esoteric electonica / primal death jazz with voice, viola, and double reeded horn. An ACCESS spell for gaining entry into hidden domains. Dark Blessings. now availible from Torrid Orb / Psyop as full digital download and very soon on tape cassette.
Here is a 20 minute compilation of excerpts from "Last of the Line," a theatrical musical by Andy Neubauer, Kinko Malada, Alina B. & Jefferson Zurna, based upon the lp album "Cacophony" by legendary schizoteric punk band Rudimentary Peni, staged in secret at exacty 11:11 pm on the hidden loading dock of [un-named local business] before a large bike-in audience. Much of the script, and virtually all of the un-narrated passages, though quite re-arranged are taken directly from Nick Blinko's ingenious lyrics for the album, which he in turn based upon the writings of inter-dimensional horror writer H.P. Lovecraft.
3 Moons has been living and traveling in an old Ford Chinook Motorhome since March 2013. We crossed many rivers, borders, deserts, oceans, forests, plains, mountains, and skies. From Washinton State, the many worlds of California, down into Mexico, across the Great Plains, and back along this wide circle several times over. With our "Rolling Infusion Apothecary" in tow, our guitars, horns, electric piano, and electronics, and with my handsome dog Ratchet-man as our spirit guide, we had an amazing, nealry year long adventure. Many thanks to all the many friends, allies, and accomplices that contributed in innumerable ways to this Fitzcaraldo-esque project. Also thanks to "Triple A". We penetrated the Lodge of the Black Butterfly, and humbled ourselves in the Sanctuary of the Sunwomb. Now we will rest thankfully in the Ice-Blue Heart Crystal of Minneapolis, MN for the winter months. Over the long miles we compiled a few live recordings, as partly evidenced by this new tape cassette release "REMOTE CONTROL SPHINX". RCS is a representation of the "instrumental" quasi-improvisational shadow side of our live sets from this tour, and includes recordings from some of the shows, a live-in-studio radio broadcast, a privately performed solo improvisation, and a spontaneous basement collaboration. All the material was recorded "live" by stereo condensers except the broadcast, and it is all "instrumental". We are looking forward to finishing our studio album "Astronomy of Dreams" this winter which features the songs we have been singing on this trip and some brand new ones as well. You can listen at www.3moons.bandcamp.com Please check it on out. Infinite Gratitude to all friends and the Great Spirit, Infinite Blessings to all.

AVAILIBLE NOW FROM LIGHTEN UP SOUNDS ...
"Let yourself drown. Visitor have established themselves around Minneapolis as an undeniable powerhouse, with their singular brand of pounding riff worship and massive double drummer attack. Featuring Andie Mazorol (Myrrh, Mother Of Fire), Graham Baldwin (Bloodwall, 2208), and Jefferson Zurna (3 Moons, Gili Gili Men). Gigantic guitar wash and crunch, waves of echo and relentless pummeling rhythm. Have no fear, this is NOT bass laden drone bore, but crushing and deeply psychedelic doom rock anthems of the highest order. Two heavy side-long improv monoliths for these frightening modern days. Real time duplicated black shell cassette with black and brown labels comes packed in double sided fold out J-card featuring antique sepia tone photograph in a clear Norelco case. Like the ocean."
