the Most Reverend Stanley J. Bingman is the inspirational,
charismatic, and mysterious leader (?) for Oakland, CA's (favorite?)
slop-pop outfit, (the) UZI RASH (BAND GROUP? OOZEY WRASCH? U$i RAZH?).
The band is set to open the
string of events for the 1234go Records 10th Anniversary (party?). you can
catch their set at the Oakland Metropolitan Operahouse on Friday July 22nd @
8. Bring a strong stomach and don't be late!

1) So0O0o00oo, How would you describe your band to those who have yet to
experience the Rash? Do you have a mission statement? Should (we) be

-backwards beach party/ universal trowel/ seersucker enthusiasts/ a
surprisingly robust civil society:
In men whom men condemn as ill
I find so much of goodness still.
In men whom men pronounce divine
I find so much of sin and blot
I do not dare to draw a line
Between the two, where God has not.

-mission statement: Resacralization of the world versus materialism.
Natural social hierarchy versus an artificial hierarchy based on wealth.
The tribal community versus the nation-state.
Stewardship of the earth versus the "maximization of resources."
A harmonious relationship between men and women versus the "war
between the sexes."
Handicraft and artisanship versus industrial mass-production.

-we can choose fear or we can choose love WE CHOOSE LOVE. CHOOSE LOVE
WITH US. Take our hand, friend!

2)UR is known for having some pretty weird, intense performances chocked
full of (zany) antics and (crazy) sounds. There seems to be no shortage of
weirdness or band members. (Can you put a number on how many folks have been
in UR?) Do you have anything up your sleeve for your show on Friday July
22nd at the Metro? Are you ready to get weird?

-our numbers are legion. i personally cant count: i know only the
number 1 (one) and many (lots). our numbers come and go seasonally,
like old saint nick of easter island.

-just our usual blend of dionysian impulses balanced perfectly with
our palate cleansing, soul searing reverence for "performance".

3) What are your future plans including tours, releases, 2012,

- "palmwine rumpus vol2" LP now available.
"i was 30 in 2012" LP on volar records sept 2011
"whyte rash time" album to be recorded july 2011
"the navel of the world- south pacific songs and stories" album to be
recorded fall 2011

-on tour of southern ca july 22- 29 with unnatural helpers.

4) The 1234 go records Anniversary shows have historically had some great
line-ups. Who are you excited to see this year? Any bands that for some
reason or another are not playing that you would have loved to see?

-Don Van Vliet would have been a dee lite full surprise

5) What do you love about the East Bay (why are you here)? Do you have any
recommendations for those out-of-towners that find some extra time to kill
while visiting for the weekend (e.g., shops, eats, treats, brothels, other
attractions, etc…)?

The Hights, the Oakland home Miller built at the end of his life, is
currently known as the Joaquin Miller House and is part of Joaquin
Miller Park. He planted the surrounding trees and he personally built,
on the eminence to the north, his own funeral pyre and monuments
dedicated to Moses, General John C. Frémont, and the poets Robert
Browning and Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
by andre torres

-Did you start the band? When? Are you from Oakland? How do you
describe the band’s sound? What are people labeling you as?
The band started itself, but by my filthy paws, much int he way any
durn thing gets isself goin, forward inertia, gravity, itchin
scratchin, caterwaulin, doing the basement boogie on a slime tiled
Seattle carpet. BY that time, the stRT I DO MEAN, the band sound was
much more the same of itsselfs than it could possible be now! born
grown! a need for regression, degression, bubbling in a slow stew of
primordial ooze, toxifyin, etc was a necessity for the backwards
beachparty squelch and shimmy. get me? we been called all manner o
things but i never paid em no mind. cant afford it
UZI RASH: 2007- 2012 RIP FYI ETC

-Is there a track listing for Palmwine Rumpus Vol. 2? Does it even
matter? Much of the lyrics on PR 2 are drowned out by instruments,
giving the album a nice murky, lo-fi feel. Do you prefer lyrical
content over overall sound or vice versa?
1. Reverend Stanley J. Bingmans 2,417th Dream/ Scrutinies
2. Sacred Commerce
3. Troutwomen
4. Saurian Notes
5. Serf Rock
6. Toolmaking
it dont really matter none too much. are ya playing the albumm the
rite speed by thee by? its 45 revos per. and the real art shore is
pritteee i assure yee

-Some of your lyrics to me seem self-deprecating. I’m thinking of “I’m
a Trashbag” “Bag of Dirt” and even “Totally Fired Too”. Is that a fair
assessment? In seeing your stage performance it really looks like your
working something out through your performance. Maybe cathartic? Are
you emotional? What’s usually going through your head during a show?

naw naw none o thems songs is of or pertaining to yrs truly. i just
writ em. some times of course, when im pouring over the archives, i
notice a thing er 2 that mayhaps be an unintended TRUTH (its all
true!) but those works are of non intentioned fiction. i only hate
people like i hate myself JUST KIDDING. wes only trying to work
something out, like not 'get right', but like work it on out UH HUH
like a twist n shout up

-What's the band members' names? girl on keys with white wig, guy on
bass with Long John undies, guy with a weird electro-sax looking
instrument (what was that?), girl beating on drum, doing percussion,
Ian and Cody from the Clams joined (what kind of guitar was Cody
playing? It looked really cool)
keys- thee Whyte Bitch
bass- Mateo Luv
electro sax- Bacon Tomato Onion
drum- Ms. Gravander
12 string guitar- The Little Trashman
drums- Yogoman
other guitar YRS TRULLEE

-You guys sort of looked like a (less flashy) Sly and the Family Stone
partly because of the sheer number of people in the band, but also
some of costume involved. Does the evolution of the band and its
changing members keep things fresh? Or is it be like a roommate
situation where it feels like a revolving door of instability?
Stability, much like ability is mighty ovveeerrrrated and we seek to
compensate for the tradishional rock spectical of richual with
monstrous unpredictability even too ourselfs. like A stupidogram, ya
dig? i try not to lissen to my own head so i get all surprised whener
we play a song and whose gonna show up on stage? surprises to all of
us, lets BOOJI!

-When was PR 2 released? How about the 7" with "I Saw U"?
2011 and 20111111111111111111

-With so much coming out all of a sudden, it seems like maybe you’re
sitting on a backlog of material? Is that true? Does the sound of the
upcoming Volar lp release stay true to stuff you’ve already put out?
How is it different?
thee oldedn archives is a trshbag packed brimful with the most
everlovin racket you nevr heard and like as not never will. the furure
is a mystery, the past is history, now is a gift thas why is the
present. YECCH! this new piece is like our most ya know SOPHISTICATED
yet, appalling to lovers of art n cultchure

-Are you excited for the West Coast Tour with Unnatural Helpers? What
do you expect will come of this? How’d you hear of Telephone Callers?
oh them helpers cant help no one not even theyselfs so they ask us,
hey rashies, whip us into to shape and with a grim grin, we comply! no
problemooo, fren rock, dig? those tea callers were born same time as
us, same hospital same mother, different fathers, like shub niggurath.
thousands of us! "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn"

-Whyte Rash Time is a nice play on words. Have you been called white
trash? Is that something to aspire to in any way? How long will it
take to record the new album?
uh, WHITE TRASH????? i htought we was in a Safe Space. oh my my. jus
foolin. naw, its a referall to them Monks "black monk time", our scum
buds in Kanzuz citay Whyte Bitch and a rash (!) of albino reptile
sitins bein heralds omans and premonitions of theee coming end tymes.
come take a rashy hand into the future
