Happy New Year 2009!
As the globe turns and we lurch forward to an uncertain future, I would like to take a moment and extend a warm season’s greeting and best wishes for a happy and propserous new year!
Autumnal Greetings, my friends!
I have seen the Speaker and it is large. A good thing– as I have three hours in which to plumb its mystery and entertain patrons of the arts and lovers of rock ‘n roll.
So, come! Thursday, October 23rd will be a lovely autumn evening in which to amble down to the Massachusetts College of Art and catch Mondo perform at the Speaker Project from 6pm to 9pm. Admission is free!
We have much to speak about!
Be Seeing You!
It seems like an epoch since you last heard from Mondo but fear not, he is alive and well and thriving in alternative dimensions where rehearsal space is plentiful and guitars possess wondrous powers.
Lately I’ve enjoyed jamming in the Caledon Astrotorium in Caledon Eyre where I’m reworking ideas for my longtime endeavor “Precession of the Equinoxes,” a major song cycle, concept album and possible game franchise.

So what else is new? Well, passing time unencumbered by Newtonian physics did indeed whet my appetite for alternatives to today’s formulae of throwaway music– so much so that I accepted an invitation to participate in a performance art installation entitled “The Speaker Project” by Chicago-based artist Juan Angel Chávez, which will run at the MassArt’s Stephen D. Paine Gallery from September 22 — November 22, 2008 with a special interactive one-night only appearance by Mondo on October 23 at 6:00pm.
It should be a most rare and excellent jam session wherein we’ll see how this old art-rocker fares when stretched over a new and different frame. In addition, I’ll perform an acoustic set of those favourite old rock ‘n roll obscurities, each of which should tell at least a thousand words, especially as the speaker in this project is very large.
Be Seeing You!
Happy New Year 2007
Mondo returns to America, a stranger in a strange land– and it feels so good.
A Few Pictures from the Noise 25th Anniversary Party
Weeks have passed and all is well now that this unpleasant geopolitical business is finally sorted out. The Flying Dutchman returns a free man to a (once) free land and drops anchor in that bastion of democracy named Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Here is where I will play an acoustic salon show at the Silver Anniversary of The Noise on September 9th. TMax and Liz have graciously offered me full backstage access to their home. Won’t you join me?
