re nordine, this is what i understood, too. my first intro to him (aside
from, was it levi strauss commercials? was a little sketch he did called
"nothing's boy" on an h. p. lovecraft album in the late sixties. just
trivia, folks). speaking of darker, a slightly different shade than joe
frank (whom i also dig) would be local (venice, ca) hero barry yourgrau.
pretty twisted, but dunno if any of it's improv... check "wearing dad's
head" or "a man jumps out of a plane" (peregrine books) for
starters...surreal, ineffable, sweetly disturbing...

ps anyone know how to fix that "reply to" stuff in netscape? (you can
email me privately :-)
