Marian Ferro on Mark Skin Radio March 30, 2021 "Heart" by Orchestra Luna


Marian Ferro playing "Heart" by Orchestra Luna 6:22 pm March 30, 2021 on Mark Skin Radio review on AMG
AllMusic Review by Joe Viglione 
Heart on Mark Skin Radio by Orchestra Luna @rickberlinner @PRRussellPhotos @WhiteLightArts 6:26 pm Rock Under the Radar with Marian Ferro @gregpaquette5 also on Club Bohemia

The Orchestra Luna album began the musical legacy of Rick Berlin, the composer/singer who goes by his birth name, Richard Kinscherf, on this Epic Records debut in 1974. The seven-piece ensemble was truly groundbreaking in a world that doesn't take kindly to innovation. Where the Who were content to write rock operas, Kinscherf and his band put opera to rock. This adventurous mix of songs, written as if they were Broadway show tunes backed by a rock band with jazz and classical influences, might sound like a bit much, and 11 minutes and 53 seconds of "Doris Dreams" never had a chance of Top 40 success, or an edit that could get it there, but that idiosyncrasy is part of what makes this album so daring, and special. Co-produced by Rupert Holmes, the man who gave us "Escape (The Pina Colada Song," a monster smash in 1979, and the cannibal anthem "Timothy" in 1971, the choice might not seem appropriate on the surface. But Holmes' unheralded work for Barbara Streisand and the Broadway musical Drood actually makes him a perfect choice to oversee this project. "Miss Pamela" has wonderfulRandy Roos guitars blending with Rick Kinscherf's pretty keyboards, keyboards that could have inspiredBilly Joel, sounding very much like his 1978 hit "Just The Way You Are." It's when Kinscherf's expressive vocal kicks in that all comparisons to traditional pop go out the window. The cover of the Adler/Ross classic (you gotta have) "Heart" is a standout here, as it was in their live show. Seven of the nine tracks are penned by Rick Kinscherf, and themes that resound in "Fay Wray" (the heroine from the epic King Kong) travel throughout the artist's career. This album may be tough for some to take, but theTom Werman liner notes put things in a nice perspective. They opened for Roxy Music in Boston when this album was released, and were even more avant-garde than the legendary headliner. The band dropped the "Orchestra" from their name and became the original Luna, releasing a 45, "Hollywood," while the rest of their album was held up in litigation. They re-emerged as Berlin Airlift, then Rick Berlin: The Movie. In 2001, the former Rick Kinscherf, known as Rick Berlin, fronted the Shelley Winters Project. That sound has little in common with the early pictures painted by the exquisite "Love Is Not Enough" or musically bizarre "Boy Scouts" off this album ("Back in the boy scout camp/the moon was very full"). These themes, like the references and inspiration from films, continued to flavor Berlin's music through the years, although the Peter Barrett narrations would fall away. Moody and impressive in its gamble, this is also noteworthy in that guitarist extraordinaire Randy Roos can be heard in his formative years.

That cockamamie Covid, among many other things, certainly allowed us the time and quarantined spaces within which to reflect, rewind, and apply a 2020 rear-view as it were to things gone real by. And me being me, with a turntable or two never more than a tone-arm away, took said opportunity to listen then list straight through my particular Life in Music – in all its strictly “SEVEN” and TWELVE -inch varieties, that is.

Gary appears here whenever he wants

DBAWIS_ButtonGary Pig Gold may have grown up in Port Credit, run away to Hamilton to join his first rock ‘n’ roll group, hung out with Joe Strummer on his first-ever night in the UK, returned to T.O. to publish Canada’s first-ever rock ‘n’ roll (fan)zine, run away again gary pig gpld facong leftto Surf City to (almost) tour Australia with Jan & Dean, come home again to tour O Canada with that country’s first-ever (authorized!) Beach Boys tribute band …but STILL, he had to travel all the way back to the USSR to secure his first-


  1. Damon Hines Says:

    Gonna make us work?! Fine…cheers, mate, here’s looking at you, Pig. Really can’t wait to start digging…except for, y’know, filling out gov’t. paperwork, trudging to the bank, stores, pharmacy, But I get it, it’ll be fun, a revelation, an unveiling of something extraordinary, except it was like breathing for somebody…I can relate, because I used to be like them, at least from the creative side…but the light said no, and I remain, in part out of spite, in part, laziness, and a wee, vain smidge of hahaha hope.


HOTLINE TO THE UNDERGROUND Joe Viglione Essays Adam Sherman, The Go Go's Lou Spinnazola



Joe Viglione Essays

Adam Sherman Triangle Sky

The Go Gos

Lou Spinnazola, The Spin Room

Adam Sherman's voice has serenaded Boston for decades and this February 2021 release, Triangle Sky, is exquisite from track 1 to track 11. #7 is “Loveless Days” - three minutes and forty-one seconds of majestic elegance. It is superb.

Produced by David Minehan and recorded at Woolly Mammoth Sound, Waltham MA as so many notable recordings are these days, this particular composition features Lauren Parks on cello, drummer Mike Levesque, studio owner
David Minehan on the bass, David Lieb's keyboards and Adam Sherman on vocals and guitar. “Footprints” is in the same style and works as well, followed by a Brit-rock inspired bit of jangle pop with “Like You Are.” The tune is Beatle-esque, R.E.M., the Hollies, all that stuff we love in one charming little 3:47 song. This music deserves a wider audience. “Justice Lies” is a great opening track, “Blank Slate,” “Hope,” the entire disc works. I believe Marian Ferro on Rock Under the Radar / Mark Skin Radio is playing “Downpour.” Listen to Sherman's velvet voice (softer than Marty Balin's of the Jefferson Starship) on the hip final track, “Currents” which also features Sarah Levecque and Linda Viens on vocals.


Directed by Allison Ellwood

What I love about The Go-Go's documentary directed by Alison Ellwood is that before I watched it a gazillion times I listened to it on audio only twice. This is an amazing “radio show” that sustains itself just as well without the imagery. When you do watch you'll find the general public's image of a squeaky clean girl group is not really the story. Drugs, petty fights, hirings and firings, y'know...all the stuff most “band marriages” go through. You wouldn't know it from hearing their songs on the radio. These girls make the decadent Velvet Underground look like a Mitch Miller back-up group for Anita Bryant.

But, of course, where there is controversy, there's a great documentary waiting to be made. This is it.

Lou Spinnazola has one of the most fun radio shows out there, next to What's Happening with Aaron Borenstein and Bob Nelson on WMWM, Marian Ferro on Mark Skin Radio, Brian D. Young and Joel Simches on WMFO Medford and Stefano Trafecante on WCCA Worcester. These shows in particular are what the local music scene needs and is all about. Today's focus is on Lou who airs his program Mondays between 8 pm and midnight. On March 29, 2021 there was a kaleidoscope of fun stuff. Not a big fan of J.J. Cale I was blown away by a track I've never heard ...”Durango.” Plenty of Genya Ravan from her stint with Goldie and the Gingerbreads - “Skinny Vinny” and “Can't You Hear My Heartbeat” (which hit in Europe before the Herman's Hermits famous American version. And there's a story behind that we'll get to another day...Pamela Ruby Russell's “Space And Time” (at my request,) The Association “Everything That Touches You,” and even Norma Tanega's lost classic “Walking My Cat Named Dog.” Joe South was in my head this morning when I woke up from the experience. Google Super CFL and The Spin Room to check it out. What drives me bonkers...but is as fun as the the constant pinging of members of the club talking live in “chat” with the DJ/Host as he spins his magic.

Next week (or next time!) I'll be reviewing Garr Lang, The Walk Offs with their “Sorry For Nothing” and a Bert Berns documentary. Lots of stuff on the radar that we will get to.
