People are talking:
"Rock and roll matters again: love rides the heart like a galloping horse, time is a matador in slippery shoes, the days are fire with an iron tongue, and one word of truth outweighs the whole world."
Authentically-contrived rock/blues from someone who cares."
--Winston S. Churchill

HEADLESS IN SEATTLE
"Where do your dreams end and you begin? /feathers and face paint beneath the white coats/
model my inventions/ tell your hard luck stories while you cook my soup!"
"Mr. Fuller, in the guise of the Mississippi blues man Blind Lemon Rockefeller, once fronted a band called The Lotus Eaters, touring the huts and villages of many Third World countries before his mysterious disappearance nine years ago. Now, out from under the auspices of the witness protection program, at last free to perform under his own name, he is presented to you: The Voice in the Wilderness, ready to rattle the walls, tell truth to power, and steal your heart away"
"Mr. Fuller has previously recorded, HEADLESS BODY FOUND IN TOPLESS BAR featuring songs like 'Rip Up' ("you rip up my heart/ you rip off my head/ mmmmm feels good"); the poignant 'Breakfast is Ruined'("here I sit in the corpse of my youth/ a suitcase of fish and no memories of the future"); and rockers like 'Lunatic Moon' ("I die a thousand times naked and blind/the heart's a deep pit of blood and war."). He has also recorded a soundtrack ("Under Western Eyes") featuring apocalyptic dittys like "Time of the Assassin" and the chilling "Melt Not My Igloo". He was featured on the soundtrack for the independent film "Iris In", in which he also acted. Apart from music he is involved in film making, vintage jazz dancing, and reading very old books.
Mr. Fuller currently lives in a secluded location near Seattle, WA, reached only by parachute. Like Joel McCrae in 'Ride the High Country', all he wants is to enter his house justified.
