The Zombo Mulitplex is here! We are putting the final touches on our building. You have to visit ..it's at 4900 Hatfield St. in Pittsburgh. It's right in the up and happening area of Lawrenceville (less than 10 minutes from Downtown). Not only do we live in this sweet turn of the century building, but it features a full screenprinting shop, my DJ /promotions office, Julie's massage therapy studio and best of all ...the Zombo Gallery. Our gallery is the area's only hip lowbrow art gallery. Kind of like Juxtapoz magazine. Past shows have includes such lumniaries like Wayno. We currently have the mind wrenching work of none other than Chicago's Mitch O'Connell on display. The Show will run until Dec 1. The Zombo Gallery is also on the Pittsburgh Cookie Tour from Nov 29th till Dec 2nd. Check it out,
Corey LeChat's brillant kitsch photography opens on Dec. 8th at 6pm.
Gallery hours are Fridays 5pm-7:30pm or by appointment.
See www.myspace.com/rockabillycircus for the gallery myspace!
the year of Zombo! I have some plans for 2007 that
have me up nights with excitement, although I cant
quite give you any hints or specifics of these large
(and I do mean large!) scale plans, I should know
by early spring..But if that wasnt enough..
heres some kickass news I can tell. I am now
the Booking and Event promoter of Hodrod-A-Rama,
The Pacific Northwest largest and coolest Vintage
Car and Roots Rock festival. It takes place in Early
August. I have a myspace with all the gory details.
Theres a new band, The Astrolauts www.myspace.com/astrolauts.
This band squeezes the grease from Rockabilly, The
Grit for Garage, The Sweat from R and B and throws
it into a Dark Surf Rock. Watch for upcoming shows
and CD. Zombo and Juile rock with Neo from the Verbtones,
Nadine from Malibu Run and Shane from The Splashdowns.
Too cool..Z is also playing with Portland's Mars
Z will be hosting and booking the Art is Alive
music and art festival in his humble old hometown
of Canton, Ohio in April. The Canton Centre for
the Arts (part of their Civic Arena) asked him to
sort of re-create his wild 1990s underground
art/music festivals (PopCult) for reasons that are
still baffling. King Dapper played their first shows
there and will of course, have at it once again.

OUT MY NEW ANTICS AT.....................................
my space site at www.myspace.com/djzombo
Its certainly is hard to believe that we are
winding down our 2 year stint in El Paso, Texas.
It has been a lot of fun and a lot of sun. This
section of the news is a recap of the last few months
My Halloween tour went off without a hitch. I had
plenty of DJ gigs, King Dapper Shows, Hot Rod Events,
and sweet surprises to last a little while. Of course,
I am already planning my 2006 Halloween tour of
the Midwest. See you there!
The Psychotronics have been busy bees. We have had
a avalanche of shows recently and managed to record
a CD that should be out after the first of the year.
Our wicked garage/trash sound has really taken off
down here, but its time to move on. My tenor
sax work with Wolf Call, The low-rider oldies band
is even harder to leave. Being the token white in
the band, I felt kinda special. Surrounded by the
passion for music of these guys have really left
a mark on me. Its too bad I didnt record
Mano Sol/Zombo will be doing one last collaboration.
We will be recording a CD of one of our performances.
The techno/lounge/beat music of this outfit was
unlike anything else I have done. I played theremin
and effected upright bass along with dense, hip
and fast changing tracks from Mano Sol. It was sort
of like planned improvisation. Tony is a total musical
genius and damn humble about as well.
So, we leave El Paso and many true friends and head
off to hipster central.
I will most likely see many of my El Paso pals in
Las Vegas, where I will be once again a featured
DJ at Viva Las Vegas 9! Check www.vivalasvegas.net
for a full show schedule.

Cool Events Coming
Dawn of The Hot City Sinners!
coolest thing. Julie and Z have began a duet. Jules
on Upright Bass And Zombo on various Ukeleles and
Guitars n' Singin. Digging up their favorites 1930's
Dirty Blues and 1940's Honky Tonk tunes as well
as some tasty originals and nutty comedic hi-jinx.
They are destined to undermine the Coffeehouse and
Club circut with some risque rythmns. They debut
April 23rd at Cafe Latte in El Paso, but plan on
renting instruments in Europe and gigging anywhere
they can. Watch for some free MP3's and photos on
this site sooner or later! This is going to be just
what the doctor ordered for a gloomy world.
Paso Texas is where Z (and the gorgeous Mrs. Z)
are kicking up some dust now. Djing, Writing, Playing,
Sleeping, Arting, Singing, Smiling and a lot of
other cool business. Pittsburgh was a treasure,
Seattle was darn swell, but even after 2 months,
we really feel at home here. Rather than repeat
the same news that is throughout this site, I will
keep the old updates here and before you know it...
it will be filled with new zomboness!
let's start with the world of radio.
shows in Various slots at WBCQ, WRCT Pittnetradio,
KAOS andWAPS! Check their listings
UPDATE APRIL 2003.. THE SHORTWAVE SHOW IS STILL
GOING! ZOMBO WILL BE SENDING RADIO FREE ZOMBO TO
WRCT TO PLAY AT THEIR WHIM.. I WILL BE BACK ON THE
AIR ALL OF SEPT AND OCT... I WILL KEEP YOU POSTED
ON THAT... AND MY SHOWS ARE NOW AVAILABLE... I WILL
BE STARTING YOUR OWN PERSONAL ZOMBO SHOWS ON REQUEST...
SEND ME 10 BUCK AND ANY PERSONAL INFO AND I WILL
DO A CUSTOM CD RADIO SHOW FOR YOU... TOO COOL..
TOO CRAZY....On the Radio Front:
Zombo's WRCT show is reaching epidemic proportions.
It has been voted "Best Local Radio in Pittsburgh"
by the City Paper. Who knew? The show is going further
off the deep end with outlandish fake guests, unrelenting
pschotic soapboxing prattle and yeah the most amazing
music of the last 100 years.
In January, you better beware ole Z is proposing
an all night musical free for all. Taking whatever
time is open on Saturday nights and Sunday early
morning: "The Zombo Afterhours Party"
will plop onto the airwave. Keeping the station
on till dawn (approx. 3am-7am) Zombo will go to
depths of depravity unheard of on the airwaves.
and "Radio Free Zombo" will be in the
works. Pre-recorded madness for the station to air
whenever there is dead air.
Life on WBCQ remains swell. The show is getting
placed in several varying slots on several differcnt
shortwave frequencies. And you can hear some shows
on www.complexvariablesstudio.com. on their streaming
webcast and this is free , but mighty random.
