Shaman's Den Jam - Frank Moore's Shaman's Den

Recorded October 27, 2002

with Frank Moore, Teresa Cochran, Russel Kline, Stephen Jones, LX Rudis, Xtian, John The Baker, and Kalib Duarte.

“Just wanted to share with you how much fun I had at the free-form jam.... Holy Shit! I’ve been looking for new musical experiences since I was knee-high to an ewok. Not to brag, but I’ve prided myself on being open and unconcerned about form, style, etc., always listening for that special something that would raise the hair on me’ arms. I’ve probably played hundreds of such “shows”, but I have never heard anything like what we all went through the other night!!! Wow!! Thanks for bringing it all together, man.” Russell Kline, bassist “Formerly the No-No’s”

Cherotic All-Star Band at Burnt Ramen - May 31, 2007

Recorded at Burnt Ramen, Richmond, California, May 31, 2007
Raw footage of Frank Moore's Cherotic All-Star Band at Burnt Ramen, Richmond, California for the public access series "Going Deep To The Core At Ramen with Frank Moore".

We shot four hour-long episodes of this popular public access cable television series at a pop at BURNT RAMEN, the legendary illegal hard-core punk venue in Richmond, the most dangerous city in the San Francisco Bay Area!  We shot three bands playing a half-hour set each...  then I interviewed each band.  But for the last hour of the night, I locked the door and forced the bands to jam together and back Linda, Erika and me as we vocalized, danced, rubbed together nude, rubbing pleasure arousing into one another for an hour set!  Among the players this night were John the Baker, Dr.  Gruve and Lenny.

Episode 2 - A Wounded Healer - Let Me Be Frank

Originally we had planned to do a documentary about Frank's life and work because we have so much footage and so many photographs. But we did not want to do a "normal" talking head style documentary. We realized that Frank had already written a biography of sorts in his book, "Art of a Shaman" so we decided to try to use that as the "script" for the video. We decided to see if we could get people who were important to Frank and had played a part in his life to each read a chapter of the book. After drafting the email and sending it out we were blown away at the immediate response and the project took off. We assigned chapters to readers using the random principle ... as Frank loved to do ... pulling a piece of paper with a chapter number written on it from a bag as we read a person's name.

Once we had all of the recordings of the readings and added up the time, the documentary was going to be at least 3 hours long ... and it was going to take a really long time to put together. We then had a eureka on a walk one day.... we could put each chapter out on the web as we create  them  ... as episodes!

Several musicians are now creating "background music" for each episode.

Way back at the beginning, when we first had the thought of even doing a documentary about Frank, we asked Vinnie Spit Santino if he would write a song for it, without any idea how we would use it ... or what we were even doing with the documentary. Vinnie wrote the amazing "Let Me Be Frank" that will be the opening song for each episode ... and the title of the series!
