12 Hour Process Edit

Recorded in the early 1980's.

For this collage I took clips from my various productions, including the twelve hour PROCESS [at the time I was calling my performances PROCESSES] at THE SAN FRANCISCO ART INSTITUTE for my masters.  A bit of trivia: the redhead is Sybil Holiday.  At the time she was the manager of the San Francisco strip club THE LUSTY LADY.  She became a famous dominatrix.

Bob Madigan Memorial Hootenany & Seance, March 11, 2012 - Cherotic All-Stars set

Recorded at Cyclecide Warehouse, San Francisco, California.

The whole night was magical.  But things really started calling Bob back from wherever he now is when Annie narrated slides [mostly of naked Bob].  And then the FLUFF GRRL remaining members with the ashes of Bob blew everybody away.

In our tradition, FLUFF GRRL members joined my CHEROTIC ALL-STAR BAND with a lot of other CHEROTIC vets for a huge jam which was the deepest, the most powerful CHEROTIC jam ever.  To start I sang DANNY BOY and BOBBY’S GIRL [of course I was nude] to Bob.  And then the musicians piled onto the stage and spilled off in front of the stage.  Nude Linda and Erika joined me and things got hot and explicit, and Annie helped Bob suck my cock throughout the jam!  Actually I saw Bob at different points of the jam.  Actually I had two shifts of hot babes singing with me [and Peppe].  At one point the jam seemed to be winding down.  So Linda and Erika got off the stage to get me down.  But the band didn’t want to stop [after all it might be the last time!]!  So Annie and Stacy sang with me [kept kissing me!].  We segued into some of Bob’s favorite songs.  Like always, the jam lasted until most of the audience had left!  I think Bob was impressed that we cleared a room one more time!

Frank Moore's Cherotic All-Star Band.

This was the last act of a very long show of great bands at the illegal underground punk hard-core venue BURNT RAMEN.  Traditionally I cherry picked musicians from the other bands of the show to play in my band!

The Uncomfortable Zones Of Fun, March 3, 2012

Recorded at Temescal Art Center, Oakland, California.

Saturday’s performance can be called THE INVASION OF THE NO PEOPLE.  They came, according to them, because of the possibilities of SEX, SHAMANISM, and NUDE DANCING GIRLS [a woman gave the last as the motivation for her coming].  They had watched videos of past performances.  So they knew what they were getting into.  But they were not willing to do anything, even helping Linda to undress me!  I have been getting people to undress me at performances for decades with no problem.  But now people have forgotten that you get what you are willing to give.  And if you want nude dancing girls, take your clothes off!  They didn’t get much from the performance AND THEY WERE SATISFIED WITH THAT!  This low expectation is extremely disturbing.  Even though they watched videos of past performances, they used my videoing the performance as their reason for their NOs.  Again I have been videoing the performances for decades with no problem.  Any bets that they would open up if I turned off the camera?  And I can’t let fear dictate the performance.  Two college guys said they could only stay until nine o’clock to get home safely!  After years of playing at punk clubs and performance spaces in the dangerous parts of town, we are performing in a good neighborhood.  You are in deep shit if you are in your twenties and are that afraid!

At least Tomek played great music!

Nonfilms - Max

Recorded in the early 1980's.

I have a deep philosophical conversation about how taking risks is a key to a happy life.  Mmmmmm, if only the people who come to the performances would watch this before coming!

Intimacy - Build, San Francisco, California, November 9, 2002

This is another of those long laid back performances that on the surface nothing much seems to be happening...  But then...

Nonfilms - Craig

Recorded in the early 1980's.

Ah, two hunks!  Love my beefsteak!

Nonfilms - Eva

Recorded in the early 1980's.

Ah, this is the classic game of how much /little we will see!  Years later she had fond memories of the shooting!

Nonfilms - Nancy

Recorded in the early 1980's.

This is one of the most legs wide open sexy and fun nonfilms.  Nancy had been a fellow student in my performance grad class at the San Francisco art institute.  I usually didn't have on going relationships with the people we shot.  Nancy was a professional dancer.

Going Deep To The Core At Ramen #9

Recorded OCTOBER 26, 2006 at Burnt Ramen, Richmand, California. FRANK MOORE'S CHEROTIC ALL-STAR BAND with members of Bad Karma and Man Vs. Nature.

This is an episode of GOING DEEP TO THE CORE AT RAMEN WITH FRANK MOORE which was a hard core music public access cable show.  Once a month we shot at the illegal punk club THE BURNT RAMEN in the dangerous Richmond, California the sets of two to four bands plus my interviews with the bands.  At the end of the shooting night I gathered all the bands into my CHEROTIC ALL-STAR BAND for a jam.  For this night, Bob Madigan of FLUFF GRRL fame was playing in a duet MAN VS. NATURE.  This explains why he and Ann are in the jam.  This weekend Bob passed to that ultimate jam!

Music That Smells Like Sex Jam - Kimo's, San Francisco, California, April 5, 2001

Well, doesn't the title say it all!  Actually this was one of the early jams we did at KIMO'S.  You can tell because we still sneaked nudity and eroticism in under see through cut up costumes.  Soon we would get explicit!

This art student from Sweden [I think] does a very unique shedding of clothes!

Nonfilms - Andrea [Tape 4]

Recorded in the early 1980's.

This straight looking student [we finally have a shot of the person in her street clothes to document the transformation] quickly strips to her underpants [which refused to come off] to have fun trying on sexy costumes!

The Uncomfortable Zones Of Fun, February 4, 2012

Recorded at Temescal Art Center, Oakland, California.

Ah, yes!  The new punked up flier worked!  It scared off the middle of the road people who want to be entertained, want a show for their night out, want to be passive with the illusion of risk within complete shells.  It may have scared off the good reviews in THE HUFFINGTON POST, etc.  But it did attract risk takers willing and ready to actively participate, explore, experience, experiment, improvise, play, etc.  So this night was very satisfying!  And people kept coming in all night!  I felt like a bartender!  The night kept going in different directions, sometimes in several different directions at once, all to the music of Kene-J [aka MY SON] and sometimes with Jason on sax.  We went through panic attacks, lame theater games, relationship fireworks which cleared some of the audience out, and into juicy erotic states.  I kept asking probing questions in my sit-down comic act on which several people commented.  I had a complex, deeply emotionally rich group of adventurous spirits to play with.  And I learned a lot.  For example, the guy who came off the street near the end of the three hours [he was just walking by and saw I was performing inside], informed me that in the 00s when he saw my jams in San Francisco, they called me THE KING OF THE LEATHER DISTRICT!  You learn something everyday!

Will Harper Interview for the East Bay Express, December 19, 2002

I have a firm policy of videoing any time the press interviews me so I have a complete record of what I said which I can broadcast if there are distortions in the article...  Putting pressure on the journalist to get it right!  This interview was for the in-depth cover story about me in THE EAST BAY EXPRESS, the local weekly paper.  Both the interview and the article were juicy and meaty.  For the cover they used Annie Sprinkle's photo of nude body painted Linda standing beside me.  For a week that photo was on every street corner in the East bay with a big photo spread of our nude performances inside!  Although I lost some gigs from people freaking out after seeing the article, it was worth it!

You can read the full article here:

Nonfilms - Roya

Recorded in the early 1980's.

Well, sometimes nothing much happened!  This is one of those!  The sorority girl stayed just that!  But I talked her into getting me into her sorority for a day for research for a documentary about the sorority.  That day was one of my most surreal days.  I decided I wasn't up to making that documentary!

A Winter's Morning - Frank Moore's Shaman's Den

Recorded live on Sunday, January 22, 2012, Berkeley, California

These two guys flew from Seattle and rented a car just to play beautiful music in our Berkeley home.  Then they flew right back to Seattle!

Pleasure Friction Of Intimacy, Part 1 - Build, San Francisco, California, October 4, 2003

This is the first half of a six hour performance.  In my youth I did forty eight hour performances.  I like long pieces because I could slowly dig down into the juicy erotic states of pleasure arousing magical play, much deeper than the shorter performances allow.  So in this, after a couple of hours of building, tribal reality of nude bodies generating aroused melting deep dance bloomed!  And just wait until you see what happens in the second half!  [I don't know what happens!]

Pleasure Friction Of Intimacy, Part 2 - Build, San Francisco, California, October 4, 2003

Now we find out what happened! The hot erotic juicy sweaty rubbing continued, turning into a tribal community body! However the nude babes failed to undress Michael Peppe!
