Since I already biographicized myself in class to most of you the other day, I’ll be brief. I could just end the post right there (I did invent a word in the previous sentence) but I’ll go on:
I mentioned my musical DIY project, which is entitled Pepper Coat. It’s not so much a pseudonym as it is the name of the band. And it’s not so much a band as it is only comprised of me. And, I guess people have called me Pepper Coat directly before, so I suppose Pepper Coat is in fact a pseudonym. You can call me Edmund though.
A performer/musician pretty much has to be DIY these days, doing the managing and recording and promoting. All that stuff, and also if they’re ambitious (and 9 times out of 10 eccentric) they can even play all the instruments and self-produce (see: R. Stevie Moore) So, I try and do that kinda stuff:
This one is me DIYing a punk band:
And this one is me Elvising with myself:
Well, enough about Pepper Coat. I hope to work with everyone in the class to learn about new DIY initiatives. I really had no idea how much stuff was going on out there and I’d like to get in on it… any of it, really.
