In The Mess - Raw Footage



This is the complete performance that I edited a collage from [see http://vimeo.com/24445954 ].  This includes a couple of minor blue screens.  But it also includes me trying to get somebody [females]   in the audience to to be in the mess with me.  Failing that I go out of the room into the hall in search of a brave woman!  I finally find one!  [Or is she really a plant who I worked with before?]

This also includes the messy aftermath and clean up!

Santa Frank & Erika the Elf



Recorded in 2004.

Well, we have saved the best Xmas special for the last!  It puts the X in Xmas!  It starts with Erika the elf in a mini- mini elf costume with her legs over me as we sing Christmas carols together.  But at some point it melted into an intensive uncontrollable altered state of a giggling fit as Erika tried to read my serious Christmas poem.  Linda finally came from behind  the  camera to dance /make love with us.  Everything got erotic surreal extremely intimate slow deep turned on and went on and on!  Ah, if you want warm juicy Christmas Spirit, watch this for sexy joy!

The Uncomfortable Zones Of Fun, December 16, 2011



Recorded at Temescal Art Center, Oakland, California.

The last performance of the year was an example of how nobody knows what a performance is doing.  The audience doesn’t know how deep the experience can be if everybody is willing to play together deeper than the normal reasonable world allows.  So they get filled up at the performance because a lot happens at the performance that doesn’t happen at the normal night out entertainment.  But we performers know how deep it could get.  So when it doesn’t go there, it feels to us like nothing much happened.  I know I keep saying DON’T HAVE PICTURES!  But…

So the performance was one of those!  And at the end of the night, Linda, Erika and I danced erotic together nude just to get juicy sweaty rubbing reality, suck it all up so to subvert the surface social limits.  Sometimes you just have to do that to make it all worthwhile!  Then I came up with ideas how to punk up the flier to make it more scary!

Then on THE HUFFINGTON POST, we read a review of the performance saying how life supporting, uplifting, etc it was!  Who am I to argue?

There is no place like home for the holidays!



Recorded in December 2007.

Ah yes!  Me in front of the cozy fire with my pussy singing Christmas carols as my two hot nude elves [ok, one has an extremely short dress on with no panties on] feeding the fire.  What a life!

Nonfilms - Meg



Recorded in the early 1980's.

Meg was a sexy if very modest little person [dwarf].  She went to extreme measures not to show what she thought shouldn't be shown.  We rarely ran into the people after the nonfilm shootings.  But Meg lives in our new neighborhood.  So we run into her fairly often.  She married a photographer for whom she models nude.  When EROTIC PLAY [ http://vimeo.com/24618733 ] played on my Berkeley community public access cable TV show, her husband gave her a hard time for being so modest.  The moral: SHOW YOUR STUFF!

EXtreme Elvis & Frank Moore & Jordana HOLIDAY SPECIAL with Xtian - Frank Moore's Shaman's Den



recorded on December 25, 2002.

This is another of our Xmas specials.  The idea behind this one was Extreme Elvis and I would sing Christmas Songs together which were on Elvis's Christmas cd. EE brought along a hot babe to impress.  And Xtian [aka Christian Lunch] dropped  by with his girlfriend.  But it quickly became obvious that EE didn't know the words!  So it quickly became extremely surreal, outrageous, funny, drunk on the hard cider or whatever.  At one point he and I compared cocks to see which was smaller.  Then we basically made out together....  Very hot!  Very scary, having that kind of bulk on my person!  Years later he tried to block it from his memory!  BUT HERE IS THE PROOF!

Nonfilms - Laurie R Part 2



Recorded in the early 1980's.

In part two, Laurie and I continue to play together nude on the bed, having fun, cozy, rubbing bodies, wrestling gently.

BLACK XMASS - C.W. Saloon, San Francisco, California, December 23, 2001



This is when THE CHURCH OF SATAN had us perform at their Christmas black mass.  We ended up freaking out the daughter of Anton LaVey!  I am not sure why.  We were much less explicit back then!  Maybe it was because we used a dead Tibetan monk's thighbone as a clarinet.  PART TIMERS!

This is actually the second in my Christmas special videos.  I put the first [ http://vimeo.com/24034209 ] up on vimeo seven months ago after youtube kept taking my videos down!

Nonfilms - Laurie R PART ONE



Recorded in the early 1980's.

Laurie was a follower of the purple sexual guru.  So at first she and I talked deeply about using expanded sex as a spiritual doorway.  So we see her as she came into the session before playing.  The playing was sexy, warm, juicy, and fun.

After we put up a nonfilm on vimeo, I have to fast forward through it to remember what happened during it over twenty-five years ago to do this write-up.  I noticed this ends abruptly while she and I are giving each other sexy back rubs nude on the bed.  So we checked the next tape.  THERE IS A PART TWO!  SO STAY TUNED!

Web Of Passion, Part 1 - Build, San Francisco, California - June 8, 2002



This was an historic performance in many ways.  It turned out to be our last six hour performance.  [In my younger days I did forty eight hour performances!] This also turned out to be the last time I got on the mat at the performances.  But I made it a good ending by introducing TANSEX by playing hot explicitly with Alex.  Also this was Erika’s very first performance of mine!  In fact the audience was full of cast members going back to the OUTRAGEOUS BEAUTY REVUE days…  Even Extreme Elvis in his CLARK KENT persona brought a hot babe to impress!

Here is what I wrote back then:
 
it really is hard to write about because it was a nonlinear night that created itself...on the surface nothing much happened for hours....me drinking water, talking to people who packed the small [great] space. they arrived on time...that never happens...so i didn't have time before they came. no assholes came...or came in...on the video of it you can hear assholes outside the door all through the night, but they never came in...the force field worked! inside, the web was there from the beginning...all of us wanted to go deep and small, revealing. so i sat without my board, linda translating me/feisto. a room of amazing people telling/revealing their stories. nude teresa throughout  the night kept going from person to person, feeling/touching under clothes beyond taboos, using her blindness to weave a web of comfort. she was the base line. actually the performance was rooted, made possible, expanded from my explorations with teresa, alex, jennifer, and erika over the last year.

there was always a lot of small things happening all the time in a relaxed reality....so we sat around eating chocolate cake, teresa crawling exploring bodies, a woman going around collecting piss, blood, hair, and i don't know what else for a magical art package as a kid's musical toy played as a guy described passionately the chrome fucking machine he was making for the dadafest. and that was the "intermission break" if we were in theater rather than a communal trance. i swear, i was trapped sunday for 6 hours watching the video of the night...i couldn't move! very near the end of the performance night, alex and i played very deep erotic small human rubbing into each other's body rocking as my story MAGICAL CAVE LOVERS was played on tape and slides of my 30 years of performances were projected on the wall. [funny...i saw on the video that people didn't watch alex and me, but were focused on the slides.] alex and me were a powerful generator of possibilities in the whole night, combining with teresa's exploring throughout the night. at the middle of the performance, i asked teresa, alex, and erika to talk about their working with me and how it has effected their life work. they talked very deeply, pulling the whole performance in much deeper...so deep it made it possible to do the ritual that we always had done before within the hidden/secret cave of lila. the whole room became the cave of lila. this made it possible to video this ritual. it hasn't been possible to video this ritual before. it is extremely beautiful, melting bodies together...at the end there are magical shots of hands moving/dancing together.

Toni Ivashkov/Pollenland - Frank Moore's Shaman's Den



Recorded November 25, 2011.

For this episode of THE SHAMAN'S DEN, the performance artist,  Toni ivashkov [and the inspiration for my painting http://www.eroplay.com/Cave/digital/toni.html] came up from Los Angeles with two of her troupe to be on my show.  It was great.  Almost everybody ended up [after a deep conversation] nude singing songs in Russian as a ballerina danced!  Unfortunately we ran out of time!   She also has a great little book of her paintings of her pussy.  Her web site is http://web.me.com/artattackit/Toni_Ivashkov/Home.html.

The Uncomfortable Zones of Fun, November 19, 2011

Recorded at Temescal Art Center, Oakland, California.

Well, this one was perfectly cast to observe and confront what I call THE COMBINE PLOT.  In the late eighties I wrote: 

It is important to understand the nature of the general plot of fragmentation, the combine plot.  I took the word "combine" from the novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest by Ken Kesey.  In the book, the combine is a fear machine network which secretly installed pacemakers of fear, doubt, and mistrust in almost everyone in childhood.  This made people much easier to control.  It isolates people into cells padded with fear and doubt, making the people part of the combine.  There are some misfits whom the combine missed with its fear pacemakers.  In others, the fear pacemakers blow their fuses.  These people without the fear pacemakers are very dangerous to the combine because if they are not checked, destroyed, discredited, isolated, or enfolded into the combine, they can show others how to blow out their own fear pacemakers, can show others how to be free humans linked to other free humans.  The combine rarely has to directly destroy the misfits itself.  Just direct eliminations would reveal the existence of the combine.  So such direct eliminations are kept to the minimum.  The real tool of the combine is a vague sense of uncomfortableness, of inferiority, and of mistrust within the victims of the combine.  The setting of the novel is a mental ward in which most of the patients are self‑committed.  They believe themselves weak, unable to cope with the outside world.  They believe the fear comes from themselves, not from the pacemakers.  They just have to start believing in themselves, and they could pull out the pacemakers and walk out of the hospital.  But every time they reach this threshold of freedom, the combine, by clever remote manipulation, turns up the vague uncomfortableness and mistrust.  The victims themselves do the destroying of the misfit either in themselves or that con man pied piper who laughs at their fears and limits, who shows them the way to freedom.  It is the victims who do most of the censoring.

One of the main functions of art is to be that misfit who reveals and fights against the combine, to show the way back to freedom and self‑trust.  

In the audience there were a group of four young psych students who had basically been forced to sign a loyalty oath to The Combine Plot to go to school.  They had internalized this as a fear that if they violated the loyalty oath in ways they couldn’t pin down, they would be kicked out of the school.  Their fear of undressing me became a tool for examining this box of “PROFESSIONALISM”.  Also there were a couple of professors who train social workers.  At one point the female professor told us that typically students have to  unlearn around fifty percent of what they learned in college after college to live.  Also in the audience was a cute lusty pair of lovers who provided the erotic juice for the night.  The hot babe turned out to be seventy one years old!  Also at one point a family with a kid came in.  I just told them there was nudity and eroticism in the piece.  They had no problem with that!  I have noticed from watching videos of performances in other countries that people bring their kids to edgy performances, unlike in this country.  

I had the student who had been a nurse read my poem OUT OF ISOLATION, which is about breaking out of the isolation of PROFESSIONALISM into warm human love.  She almost cried.  

Early in the piece, I had my poem NO CAN NOTS read.  I wrote it for a class of pre- med students.  It sums up what I was trying to get through to the psych students.  But the reading was garbled.  So here is the poem: 


NO CAN NOTS

Talking to future healers

                                                & teachers

                                                                        & maybe future        

                        muckrakers & troublemakers

Well, 

            Not really future

                                    Because hopefully

                                                                        You are doing IT

                                                                                                            RIGHT NOW!

Hopefully       

                        I’m not talking to the future guards

                                                                        Of the corporate normalcy

                                    Armed with can nots,

                                                            Limiting futures from birth,

                        Enforcing coloring only within the lines,

                        Enforcing doing everything

                                                                        THE RIGHT WAY

                                                                        THE NORMAL WAY

 

To turn the intensity of what had happened in the performance back into the physical intimacy, we did an erotic dance ritual which became more and more explicit, direct, raw.  Linda, Erika and I kept falling into prickly rubbing aroused pleasure friction deep as the audience all left.  For all you know, we are still at it!  Performance art is like that!  
 
In Freedom,
Frank Moore

Julie's Supper Club, San Francisco, California May 4, 2004



Frank Moore's Cherotic All-Star Band.

This answers the age-old question of how many nude erotically rubbing bodies, musicians playing their instruments, cameras, and audience members can you fit into a small space. This was for the premier of an underground film at a San Francisco jazz club.

St. Stupid's Day After Party, April 1, 2007



Frank Moore's Cherotic All-Star Band, Fat City, San Francisco, California.

We were the finale of the  long, great night of the After St. Stupid Day Bash at Fat City in S.F. put on by Bob and Ann Madigan…cram packed with great, loud, surreal, over-the-edge bands. In fact it was so long that I lost a quarter of my band before we went on as the finale of the show at 1:15am! But The Cherotic All-Star Band was huge anyway. After my traditional vocal solo, Lenny Lauro of The Year of the Wildcat with his bass dug the groove deeper and deeper. Rich Polysorbate, the drummer of L.A.’s Clowns & Fetuses, stirred the tribal heart. Mike Fluffgrrl’s slide guitarist, Barney Fluffgrrl’s Theremin wizard, and the trombonist from Los Banos created musical/emotional water slides into fuzzy altered states as Bob Madigan and Michael Peppe tickled the keys, joyfully grinning. Lena Strayhorn played various unique instruments, arousing sexy giggling thoughts. The E-Salon’s own Kay played with musical toys. I crashed the chimes when I wasn’t rubbing/dancing naked intimate sex into the jamming with Linda and Erika…when they weren’t tickling each other all-the-way into silliness or “getting” the band. All through the jam Linda, Erika, Lena, Bob, Peppe, Caroline of The Year of the Wildcat joined me in a pagan non-verbal vocal chorus that ripped holes in “reality” into soft molten pleasure chaos of enjoying being one another within one another. And all of this…and in fact the whole show of the long night…was pumped full of juice by Ann Madigan standing in front of the stage very actively enjoying. This greased all the wheels!

Nonfilms - Lyn



Recorded in the early 1980's.

One thing we didn't do which we kick ourselves for not doing is filming the person in her own clothes before playing.  When Lyn came, she looked so straight, almost like somebody's grandmother.  We didn't believe she would do anything.  But she turned out to be one hot babe!

Exploring Of Possibilities Of Passion, February 14, 2003



Recorded at the University of California, Berkeley.

For this one, the university's art department had just pulled its sponsorship of the performance series.  there were CANCELED signs all over the place! we replaced them and went in. my plan was to talk to the people who came to the performance in the hall outside the room. BUT THEY WERE WAXING THE HALLS! but the janitors, who recognized me from the first week, said we should go into the room...which was open, lights on...so, as i sometimes do,  i did as i was told! as each person entered, i warned them: "ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE SERIES HAS BEEN CANCELLED. THIS PERFORMANCE IS ILLEGAL. WE ARE TRESPASSING!" only the first couple hightailed it. the rest [maybe 12 people] just sat down outraged! and as we talked about the two censorings in one week...they got more outraged! i started reading the poems that i read outside the cafe. things got magical when i had different people read my poems while sitting beside me. marie read sexy. but things went beyond the frame when a guy....maybe of arab stock, maybe a slight c.p....read TORTURES. each event in the poem boiled his emotions more and more...so much so, he sometimes had to scream before going on! and when he got to the last line ["but all in all, life has been good!], he laughed deeply, almost out of control, in relief that life is indeed good! (we got all of it on video!)

DANGEROUS STUFF!

dung mummy at Il Corral



Frank Moore's Cherotic All-Star Band recorded at Il Corral, Los Angeles, California, January 20, 2007.

We were insane!  We booked two gigs on the same night!  So after we did our piece at THE NOTE [see http://vimeo.com/3152650] with  the exceptions of Steve Davis and Eddie, we all headed to Il Corral to continue what we had started. On the drive there, we wolfed down sandwiches.

There, we added a toy instruments’ section with The Refrigerator Mothers’ (or were they hop-frog's drum jester devotional that night?) Carl F. Off, Jeremy Morelock (a.k.a. e.loi), Denise Owens (a.k.a. Volcanosis). This jam was really part two of what we had started at The Note. It had the same structure. But it lasted over 40 minutes…time enough to go into the tunnels of arousal opened up at The Note, time enough to press into wet grooves, exploring erotic intimate dark small quiet places, getting caught up into Vinnie’s driving heart beating, enjoying Steve’s hot licks, getting lost in Tomek’s passion squeezings, etc. In reality that night we did an hour jam not limited by space or time.  Very satisfying!

Exploring Of Possibilities Of Passion, January 31, 2003



Recorded at the University of California, Berkeley.

This is the first performance of the 00’s series at the University of California Berkeley.  Actually this was the only “legal” performance of the series, sponsored by the art department.  This was after I was a guest lecturer at an art class [it turned out that both the art and theater departments taught about my work].  But after this performance, the local paper did a major cover story about me with a lot of nude photos [including the cover photo by Annie Sprinkle of nude Linda and clothed me (see http://www.eroplay.com/ebx/index.html )].  And the art department got cold feet and withdrew their sponsorship dramatically.  In fact we had to “trespass” in order to do the second performance!  Then I found a radical student who was willing to front for the series.

Back to this performance…  The actress who came to the performance to audition ended up working with me for the next couple of years.  In fact, she, Linda and I did a dance ritual so erotic and intimate it totally freaked out my pick up band.  During this dance they stopped playing, packed up their instruments and left!

Anyway, here is what I wrote at the time:  

The large studio room in the art department is ideal for performances. a lot of people came...over 40...a wide range of people. some were waiting when we arrived to set up. they were hungry!

I had a band of 2 saxophones and 1 drummer playing throughout. slides on the wall. marie kazalia in a see-through scarf read one of her poems every 5 minutes. teresa wandered around exploring people's bodies...hey, she's a blind lusty broad! another blind broad, maia...an extremely dynamic experimental dancer...kept the space physically charged with the unexpected. and linda dressed(?) in her ribbons dress. this was the background!

After some playing the audience (for an hour!), i settled on an actress (or was she really a plant?) who had come to check me out before auditioning for me. basically i put her through an audition right there. first i had her mirror the movements of the incredibly graceful "disabled" dancer neil marcus (just happened to be in the audience!)...she did great! then i asked her to do an extremely erotic dance ritual with me...and she eagerly jumped at the chance.

She went deep into gentle erotic intimacy with me...pulling the whole room into the rapture of just being human together. at some point, linda joined us to rock her. jack the drummer slowly circled us, ritually hitting a gong, deepening the trance. the ritual ended with a reading of my poem WRAPPING AND ROCKING.

12th Annual Hollywood Performance Marathon 2007



Frank Moore's Cherotic All-Star Band recorded at Theatre of Note, Los Angeles, California, January 20, 2007.

It felt like we were blasting the packed house into an altered state rather than sliding into a traveling trance with them. Looking later at the tape, it didn’t come off as a blast, but as a rich, complex experience. But as we were doing it, it felt like a high speed blast [which isn’t bad, just different]. Right from when they rolled me nude on stage after a minimal introduction [per my request] by the Guest celeb hostess Alison Arngrim (Nellie Olsen from LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE), There were a series of bits that I had to fit in to the twenty minutes…my solo chanting, my duet with Stephen Emanuel on the guitar…naked Linda and Erika joining the vocal/visual/erotic stew…then the music exploded deep with Tomek, Vinnie Santino on drums, Steve Davis on bass, Eddie on the keyboard, and Mikee moving around in his sexy costume videoing…but things had to move on, propelled by the music…rubbing skin on skin, rocking into each other, Linda and Erika tickling each other…all intimate fun…but no time to enter the tunnel of aroused exploring…time for Linda and Erika to “get” first the band and the very willing audience as I wailed. Then it was time to exit to thundering applause…which is a good thing in a theater!

A Midsummers Night Freakout



Recorded at The Space, Sacramento, California, July 15, 2006.

SPACE is a great little theater with bleacher seating. Lob put the show, A MIDSUMMERS NIGHT FREAK OUT, together. Lob and I have been doing things together for over 8 years. The night started rather peacefully, rather calmly, with Instagon playing jazzy trances. Like my band, Instagon is never the same line-up and never rehearsed together. This time Instagon was Lob on bass, Steve on guitar, Jim of The Shenanigoats on drums, Danny on trumpet, and another guy on the didgeridoo. Except for the didgeridoo-er, the rest would join my band for the night. When all was peaceful, BOTCHII messed it all up, blasting ultra-high energy punky noise assault. They are a trio of guitarist Tom Skowronskif and drummer Matthew “Lobster” Graybiel and Kevin Meecrob on pedals. They were simply mind-blowing great! Lobster would join The Cherotic All-Stars later, trading his drums for a mean guitar. Then after Botchii, a scary bunch of weirdos started setting up huge steel drums, power saws, giant puppets, etc. I smelled fresh danger of destruction. So I asked a member of UBERKUNST if we were safe sitting in the front row. We moved to the side! And Erika still got wounded in the chest by a flying shard of vinyl from Mary Martin’s South Pacific! UBERKUNST bills itself as “offensive fun, experimental music, noise ?music?, huge clumsy amateur theatrics and the scariest 13 person band on the planet.” Basically they presented your post-apocalyptic world where evil robots butt-rape and then disembowel humans (the disemboweling was rather whimpy!) … leading to a total chaotic destruction with a lot of banging, bashing, power saws grinding on metal drums, creating red hot showers of sparks. At the end everything was in ruin! Wendy O Williams would have been proud! From UBERKUNST, the “filthy bass” of Dire Deparra would join The Cherotic All-Stars’ jam!

So I had my work cut out for me! By Lob creating a brilliant line-up, he was forcing us to stretch, expand … take the night into soft, intimate, erotic trances … which is the opposite of UBERKUNST … but building on what had been created through out the night. To start I sat nude under strobes and slides, doing an emotional vocal solo for several minutes, moving, dancing, rocking back and forth. Then Linda and Erika naked except for pearls joined me in the moaning chant. They danced together, moving, pleasure rubbing deep into each other within infusion, soon enveloping me into the intimate body. Soon the rest of the band appeared, forming a semi-circle … Danny on Trumpet, Lob running around the stage banging on the tambourine, Steve Davis plucking his bass, Dr. Gruve blowing his harmonica, Dire pounding the bass, Lobster pushing his guitar, Tomek squeezing his accordion and playing other instruments, Jim beating the drums. At a certain point, Linda and Erika left me to cuddle with each band member, and then they went into the audience to cuddle with people as I wailed with the band. People are hungry for that deep human touch! When Linda and Erika got back to the stage, Erika tried to play clarinet…but quickly started moving with Linda again! The jam lasted over an hour.

Norcal Noisefest 2004



Frank Moore's Cherotic All-Star Band, recorded September 25, 2004 at the Norcal Noisefest, Sacramento, California

This is a case of where the audience loved what we did, but the promoter was so freaked out and offended both by the naked eroticism and by the actual music.  We were not asked back!  The reason given was we were not NOISE!  funny, I have been playing with noise musicians since the mid eighties.  In fact this is when I met Steve Davis and his band +DOG+, establishing a long term musical relationship and friendship.  So...

Well, this started out sexy and playful with a relaxed erotic nudity.  Paige was one of the very few personal friends of ours who did these nonfilms.  She had fun trying on sexy costumes, giving me an oatmeal facial and washing my hair.  But we ran into a roadblock when I asked her to do centerpiece poses.  Then we explored that roadblock!

The Uncomfortable Zones of Fun, October 22, 2011



Recorded at Temescal Arts Center, Oakland, California.

Well, this one was like driving a bus!  Especially when we just did a performance last week and I really had not recovered.  I don’t mind driving a bus if we go to deep places, if the people are willing to risk themselves so we can go to unexplored territories.  At first it looked quite questionable.  There was a crip who wrote me a couple days before  wanting to study with me to learn how        to enjoy his life.  I told him that coming to the performance would be a great start.  But he wouldn’t come into the lights with the people even when I said that was where what he wanted was.  He finally left to avoid being a part of the rest of us in the lights!

The first part didn’t look good.  A lot of no’s!  Then magic started happening!  Rigid fragile shells started to crack, letting new questions and possibilities into the hearts of the people which clearly will change lives radically.  The people did this incomprehensible miracle, not me the bus driver.  They did not hold on to the fragile shells.  They took personal responsibility for following the new possibilities although that threatened their usual frames of reality outside of the performance.  Of course I did tricks to make it possible for them to go from rigid perpendicular individuals to a tribal body of nude dancing kids enjoying moving together flowing realizing their beauty.  But they did it, were responsible for it!  Thank heaven…  I was so tired I didn’t get nude!

The Union Of Erotic Passions



Cherry Lounge, San Francisco, California, September 5, 2004

Well, this gig got us blacklisted from the San Francisco punk scene.  It was apparently that hot!  See for yourself!

Below is what I wrote at the time:

Apparently there was a controversy around our appearance. On RAMPAGE RADIO (the hard core all-night show hosted by Dirty Dave, Boom, and Bob) on KUSF early Sunday morning a "management" guy from CHERRY said "Frank Moore will not be nude at THE CHERRY" ... or some such nonsense. The fates prevented me from knowing about this until we got there ... LUVeR couldn't carry the show because their stream was down ... then Bob couldn't reach us to warn us because our phone was out. So I enter the club not loaded for bear. Hey, when Boom booked us, he told the lesbian owner what we do, and she said it was all cool. So I'm not clear about the power dynamics. But, although everyone was nice, there was a definite vibe that the whole hard core scene (not just us) were freaks from the wrong side of the tracks. Hey, we "queered the place," to use a term that our lesbian neighbor is fond of ... it was a night of TRANSFORMATIVE TRANGRESSION!

All through the night Bob kept muttering about what happened on RAMPAGE...but he always mutters like Popeye. So it wasn't until in the set of FLUFF GRRL(YMAN) ... which was their most powerful set I have seen ... that Bob in/as a song outlined what happened ... and that he bets that they wouldn't be able to stop Frank Moore! So what choice did I have?

When I had my clothes off, Boom gave us the official NO-NUDITY word ... that absurd duty over with, Boom half-jokingly (or was it quarter-jokingly?) said "well, no penetration then!" To that, Anne Madigan asked if that meant that she couldn't stick her finger in my ear. And I don't know if Bob's sucking / blowing my cock as a flute violated this no-penetration rule. Bob didn't do much of that Sunday night. He said that was because my balls were sweaty. That has never stopped him before! It was the first FLUFF GRRL gig I've seen that Bob didn't drop his pants and set fire to his pubes. Was it because of the threatened limiting vibes? I don't know. Did the nude explicit sweaty orgasmic rubbing rocking erotic dance Linda and I did together violate the no-penetration rule? I won't tell! That's what the slow motion and zoom buttons on your player are for! But a lot of what we do in bars is breaking actual laws covering venues serving liquor.and not just penetration. Of course in the 30+ years that we have been "transgressing" in clubs, there has not been a single raid, etc. (DARN!) But the club should be committed to the risky art presented. I talked to Boom tonight.and he assured me that CHERRY wants the scene there and has no problem with what we did. notwithstanding what I wrote above. I hope he's right!

I started the set singing alone on the floor I AM WOMAN.hey, CHERRY was supposed to be a lesbian bar. Then Bob did the skin flute on me as the rest of the band took their positions. I heard a real flute. It wasn't Bob, but Erika in an open robe. She was prevented from erotic dancing by an evil case of poison oak. Only half of the band, numbering 15 members, could fit on the stage. So the other half spilled on to the floor on either side me. After Bob had his way with me, I turned around to face toward the band, creating a communal ritual circle. Musically and erotically it got sweaty fast, people playing off, feeding off, of one another.changing instruments, doing vocals, becoming a molten musical mass. We had all of FLUFF GRRL plus Anne, the bass player and the lead singer of Violent Discharge (the second band of the night).who poured blood on me! Andy brought his Sousaphone and his guitarist friend Joel to be in the stew. Topless Dr. Gruve blew himself and his harp into one giant sweat bead trance of bliss, followed close behind by the madman Michael Peppe.

Things kept being melting down to bluesy intimate touch moan exchange for about an hour. It was the deepest into the musical unknown we have ventured into in our jamming.

Extreme Elvis "Love Me Chicken Tenders" - feat. Frank Moore - Dadafest 2001, San Francisco, California, July 6, 2001



Why do I pop up in cameo roles in others' pieces involving animals and which became historical /controversial?  In the eighties I was in THE FEEDERZ DEAD CAT /DOG gig!  And now this EXTREME ELVIS chicken act!  Although I got E.  E.  this gig in THE DADA FEST, I first actually physically met him backstage before the show.  Before I had seen his online videos of him pissing and shitting on his audience members and we emailed each other.  He asked me backstage if I would be the translator for his act.  He wanted to tell me something about his act.  But I stopped him, because my knowing would block everything!  So when the feathers instead of shit began to fly, I just continued my Dizzy Dean [look him up!] impersonation.

Exploring The Taboos Of Intimate Fun - October 15, 2011



Recorded at the Center For Sex and Culture, San Francisco, California.

The audience for this one was sweet [both genders, even the two street stand-up comedians].  They were basically ready to go deep into their dreams of how things should be.  Some of them were already focused on doing this in their regular lives, especially the three who are in an art collective together.  So it was relatively easy to get the tribal intimacy to the surface.  This was further lubricated by the music by Tomek and the general open environment of THE CENTER FOR SEX AND CULTURE. There was even the deaf mute who has come to my performances several times before.  He tends to root everything.    But when we were preparing to go into physical rituals of intimacy, a guy released the virus of fear basically to call attention to himself and to sabotage things, as he admitted later.  He took the mic and said he would not take his clothes off because of the video camera.  Of course he has been coming to my performances for years, all of which were videod.  Moreover I had an audience member undress the camera guy among other things to draw attention to the fact that he was videoing the performance.  Although some people caught the virus and joined the band, the tribal body didn’t let the virus sidetrack the deepening joyful intimacy.  This was especially true for one of the three from the art collective who rocked on my lap juicy human warmth without limits arousing pleasure prickly rubbing bodies together flowing into Linda smoothly becoming one body.  So I would say we defeated fear at this performance!  And what more can you ask of a performance?

Nonfilms - Arjen



Recorded in the early 1980s.

Well, this one is one of those I have no memory of doing.  Watching it now I can see why.  No juice even though a lot of nudity.  I didn't used the footage in either of the two films.  Hey, they can't all be magic!

Also from watching this, I realized the numbering of  the nonfilm sessions isn't correct.  We got three or four sessions on a tape [using the six hour speed].  But we only numbered the tapes when I was ready to edit about two years after we started.  So...

Nonfilms - Marlene




Recorded in the early 1980's.

This is the third in the NONFILM series.  We [Linda and I] never knew what would happen when we began a session, which is a major part of the magic.  In this one I had to work hard, giggle a lot, and use a lot of tricks to get under the surface shyness to the playful girl who ended up revealing most of her body and had fun doing it!

Intimate Experiments in Deep Core Magic, August 1, 2003



Recorded at the University of California, Berkeley, California.

This turned out to be the very last performance of the amazing year long underground semi- illegal series at the university of California Berkeley.  This night the erotic energy, the joyous freedom, and the improvised music exploded out of the classroom.  Basically it got too dangerous to the Powers that be.  So our access disappeared.

Nonfilms - Jeff



Recorded in the early 1980's.

This is the second episode in my NONFILM series.  Believe it or not, Jeff was my case worker at this governmental agency for the disabled!

The Art Outlaws



Recorded at Ashkenaz, Berkeley, California, April 4, 1993.

After so-called feminists tried unsuccessfully to stop the booking of this show because they thought my art was somehow sexist, this show marked the transition from me singing to corny records [which I had been doing since THE OUTRAGEOUS BEAUTY REVUE broke up in the early eighties] to jamming.  In fact, this could be considered the first CHEROTIC ALL STAR BAND.  Barb Golden of THE WIG BAND opened up the night.  Her sax player Toyoji had played with John Cage.  I did backup vocals for her in her set.  Then she played keyboard in my band with John Seabury of THE PSYCHOTIC PINEAPPLE [which formed after they saw my OUTRAGEOUS BEAUTY REVUE] on guitar.  Before the show I tried to get Toyoji to play in my band.  But he shyly declined.  However in the middle of the glorious erotic chaos of the set, he crawled on the stage and got more and more uninhibited!

Nonfilms - Roselyn



Recorded in the early 1980's.

Well, this was a great start to what ended up being a two year project.  At the end of my grad imprisonment at the San Francisco Art Institute I had this idea of going up to people on the street in my motor wheelchair with a sign asking them to be in my film about real beauty, play and eroticism.  The film would contain nudity if they felt comfortable with that.  Would they give me their phone numbers so Linda could call them to set up shooting sessions in my studio?  Linda laughed, thinking people wouldn’t give me their phone Numbers.  But I came home with bags full!

And this was the very first session.  Needless to say, we were blown out at how free, joyous, erotic she was.  It set the bar for the next two years!  And, yes, I did all of my own stunts!  Of course I wore a neck brace for decades after this!  But it was worth it!

I got shit at the Art Institute for this!  Was this really art?  Moreover I was shooting with home video equipment on the six hour speed!  They told me nobody would watch videos shot like that!  Hey, I didn’t have money!  So I did what I could afford.  AND CHECK OUT THE STATS OF THIS!

VideoWest Segment w/ Green Beret



recorded circa 1980.

VIDEOWEST was a hip magazine show on PBS.  This is the segment on my group when we were doing THE OUTRAGEOUS BEAUTY REVUE [see http://vimeo.com/2448591 ]  at the San Francisco punk club, THE MABUHAY.  The OBR attracted a lot of national and international press coverage during its three years.  for VIDEOWEST we shot the interview and the workshop scenes at our theater, THE BLIND LEMON, in Berkeley.  We shot the OBR acts [THE GREEN BERETS and THE MEAT ACT] at THE MABUHAY.

Intimate Experiments in Deep Core Magic, June 27, 2003



Recorded at the University of California, Berkeley, California.

We didn't know at the time that this was close to the last performance of this series at the university of California Berkeley.  This series, unlike the series in the eighties, was underground, semi- illegal.  The erotic energy was building, the music was growing loud and dangerous.  After a couple of more performances, the radical student who was our cover told me her nerves could not take it anymore and she could not find another student radical enough to take over the cover.

The Uncomfortable Zones Of Fun, September 24, 2011



Recorded at Temescal Arts Center, Oakland, California.

This one was about process rather than about erotic juicy visuals.  And the process came into the performance and definitely flowed out into the people’s everyday life after the performance.  Moreover, everybody, except for the middle class high school counselor, pushed themselves.  The high school counselor actually called his wife BORING.  But when she actually joyfully got into the performance, he made them beat a quick exit, after refusing to donate anything [not to mention scaring out a group of young people who would have added juicy possibilities to the night].  Everybody else donated something even though they didn’t have much money.  That guy was that kind!  Hey, he was a high school counselor after all!  Embarrassing!  A performance costs us over $200 in theater rental, fliers [Btw, Corey and Alexi spend five days fliering for each performance], etc.  We never get a fraction of that from a performance.  That is the reality of the addiction of art.  And for the most part people give what they afford.  EXCEPT FOR MIDDLE CLASS ASSHOLES LIKE THIS GUY!

Everybody else pushed themselves.  The musician played even when there wasn’t an audience.  The retired construction guy let himself be undressed.  The dancer did a nude dance with me.  And his girlfriend pushed against crippling boundaries which let assholes in her past control her actions now.  She said she would come back to continue the pushing beyond the boundaries even when it was hard.  Now that makes for a successful performance, even when Erika didn’t get nude [that never happens!]!  But I need to send out two PS’s to this.  One is my poem BOUNDARIES KILL to the braless vixen.  And my essay about how to create a masterpiece to the dancer.  His best move was falling!

Frank & Nina E.



NINA IS BACK!  VIMEO JUST RESTORED THIS AFTER REMOVING IT FOR BEING PORNOGRAPHY!

Recorded November 1984.

This was a video of a rehearsal /private performance which I then played with.  Nina was in my cast for quite a few of the first performance series at the university of California, Berkeley in the eighties.  She was amazing and free, without limits...  EXCEPT she had a thing about breathing in germs [apparently she was immune to germs via skin contact].  I'm flexible!  I suggested she could wear a mask /bandanna.  Apparently that was so effective that it protected her even when it slipped down.

At the time I was developing the concept of EROPLAY.  Nina was important to this development process, as were Barbara and Holly.

Wrapping/Rocking - Painted Bride, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - May 23, 1987



Well, this was on my first national tour.  THE PAINTED BRIDE is one of the biggest, the most mainstream theatres I have ever played in!  They only booked me because FRANKLIN FURNACE in N.Y.C. booked me.  They were extremely nervous.  But beautiful lighting!  I blocked off the seating and had the audience sit on the huge stage.  The local cast was great, especially when the theater [which got them for me] hadn't told them nudity and eroticism were involved.

Check out the discussion with the audience at the end.  One guy accused me of using unfair tactics by using my naked body [disabled] in my performance...  It was a cheap trick going for shock value, according to him.  Laughing, I replied I LIKE SHOCK VALUE, THE CHEAPPER THE BETTER!  Of course the guy maybe was having a jealous reaction because during the performance his girlfriend cuddled nude me in her lap.

Body Art



University of California, Berkeley, November 21, 1985.

This is a performance from the first UCB series in the mid- eighties [we were an official series then unlike the 00's ].  At the time I was filming FEISTO [see http://vimeo.com/24595844].  I had to shave all my hair off for the film.  So I thought why not have people at this performance shave me.  As you can see, I had a hard time getting them to really do it!

The woman who is giving herself a tattoo is a reporter who wrote a great story about the performance.

The Family Curse - Frank Moore's Shaman's Den



Recorded October 12, 2009.

Talk about dynamic, full-on punk hard-core band...  THE FAMILY CURSE is that!  And their lead Singer!  Well, she proved it is possible to be erotic with your clothes on!

The Feederz with Frank Moore, Gilman Street Project, July 19, 1987



This is a rare video of the historic infamous FEEDERZ act in which I had a cameo and Frank Discussion [their lead singer] wore a dead dog and a dead cat [both from the humane society] as well as a few cockroaches, and the audience stopped the act and stormed the stage! I pop up everywhere!

Exploring Of Possibilities Of Passion, April 18, 2003



Performance series at University of California, Berkeley
Recorded April 18, 2003.

We packed a lot into this one!

The Erotic Campaign [Entire performance]



Recorded at 8th. Street Studio, Berkeley, California, September 13, 2008

This was the climax of my two year presidential campaign.

A performance can be built on a good title…like THE EROTIC CAMPAIGN…FEEL, TOUCH THE POSSIBILITIES. The title creates a bubble of expectations that set off reactions which build a reality. The excuse for this performance was the U.K. Eurotrash tv show SEXARAMA…the title tells it all…wanted to do a piece on the campaign. I grabbed onto this excuse to do a 3-hour inter-active ritual. For the last few years I have been only doing band gigs. I knew probably the t.v. people would boil the hours of magic down to 5 minutes of sleazy fluff. But I am willing to risk! The difference between a band gig and an inter-active ritual is the band gig has fairly defined frames. But in an inter-active ritual I don’t know what will happen from one minute to the next. I do enter the performance with pictures. But it always becomes quickly obvious those pictures ain’t what is going to happen….so dive in and float!

Everything clicked. Great band full of my long-time Cherotic vets…a great space…an audience ready to combine politics, erotics, music, and personal magic.  I had to just not block it!

A smooth jazzy rock band based in Mexico.  I regressed them back to when they were sixteen!

The Night Of The Passion Demons



Frank Moore's Cherotic All-Star Band at the Balazo Gallery, San Francisco, California, October 15, 2005

This was a case where the allegedly hip space was so freaked out by our act, it refused to rent to me again no matter the amount of money!  Maybe you can figure out why!  The band was truly all stars, made up of the other three bands playing that night.

The Cherotic All-Star Band:
Lob - bass
Dr. Oblivious - keyboards
Dr. Gruve - Harmonica
Michael Peppe - vocals/keyboards
Bob Madigan - vocals
Mike (Fluff Grrl) - slide guitar
Steve Davis - guitar
Linda Mac - vocals/dance
Erika Shaver-Nelson - vocals/dance
Frank Moore - vocals/dance

Deborah Crooks & Kwame Copeland - Frank Moore's Shaman's Den



Recorded June 19, 2011.

Deborah is a great songwriter and folk singer.  She does a killer set.  Then we talk together about art, philosophy, and other deep shit.

The Uncomfortable Zones of Fun, August 27, 2011



MMmmmm…  Writing about the performances have just changed because we are now putting up the video of the whole performance on VIMEO even before I have recovered from the performance to write about it, whereby continuing the performance and adding new dimensions.  In fact a lot of the new people at this one had checked out the past performances on the web and were ready!  In fact one freaky chick told a bunch of her friends how nude freaky chicks always climbed all over me!  They were ready!

At the beginning of the night only two straight looking women showed up.  But then people started piling in!  It was a good mix of new people and returnees [one of which admitted at the end of the night that he was afraid to come back because the last time was so magical].  Almost everybody was ready to play and to go deep.  One young woman [white hip woman from Georgia] read a few of my poems in a powerful hip hop style [which is why I pointed out she was a white hip woman!].  She later rocked nude sexy on my lap and danced with Linda and me.  Other highlights were Nat singing extremely dirty /sexy a South American torch song and a very intense conversation about scarification with a young guy who practices it, but didn’t know the deeper spiritual dimensions of the practice.

Half way through almost everybody had their clothes off.  Well, it took Erika putting on the holey underpants of a guy who was holding on to them!  Who says we don’t go outside of our own “comfort zones”?!  But the possibility of “rubbing each other’s genitals” created the biggest band we ever had at this kind of performance!  See the video to see what I am talking about!

Kimo's July 13, 2000



Ah, believe it or not, this jam was just before we upped the erotic action in my music gigs.  Even so, my black brother, the poet LeRoy Moore found himself stripping aroused on stage singing!  It was his first public nudity!  I get results!  He didn't talk to me for years after.  But he did work nudity and eroticism into his act!

Liquid Den, Huntington Beach, California, June 8, 2003



Frank Moore's Cherotic All-Star Band at the Liquid Den, Huntington Beach, California, June 8, 2003

We turned up the erotic turn-on heat in this return engagement!  A TRUE CHEROTIC ALL STARS jam!

The band: Frank Moore, Linda Mac, Jen Wilson, Lob (bass), Dr. Oblivious (keyboards), Cary "Dingo" Pealer (drums), Yod (guitar), Kieth Adams (sax), Doe Monk (percussion), Nissa Almquist (percussion)

John Natsoulas Gallery, Davis, California, September 20, 2008



Well, this was one of those damn hard ones to do!  It was at the end of a night of extreme performances which were loud, dangerous, full of explosives, glamour, and macho risking in an upscale gallery in Davis, California.  Although there was human shit [literally] and broken glass on the floor by the time I went on, the night had really been  lame, tame and hollow.  Both the energy and the audience were diffused by the time I went on.  So I had my nude women bring the audience members [even from the balcony] to me to touch.  This was what freaked the gallery owner out!  But most of the audience members liked it.  Some even cried!

A Touching Affair



UCB Series, November 6, 1984, University Of California, Berkeley.

Well this is one of my favorite performances I have done.  Basically it is Harpo Marx seduces Barbara Stanwick or Bette Davis into going all the way.  To cut through her smart ironical one liners I used [instead of a honking horn] the clicks, whinings, and whirlings of my motor wheelchair.  She may have been the only audience member that night [not counting the janitors who kept sweeping outside of the curtain on the door so they could peek in (the janitors would become recognized experts /fans of my performances over the next three years)].  Or she may have been a plant /actress.  YOU WILL NEVER KNOW FOR SURE!  But this is true: at the time she was the Director of Women's studies at the University of California Berkeley!

Exploring Of Possibilities Of Passion, March 14, 2003



Performance series at University of California, Berkeley
Recorded March 14, 2003.

This performance marked the turning up of the erotic action in my performances several degrees.  It was always amazing what we could get away with at the university in this underground performance series!  And this particular night was jam packed with guest stars, powerful poetry, and beautiful dances!

Liquid Den, Huntington Beach, California, July 11, 2002

Frank Moore on KUSF, Rampage Radio, July 28, 2002



If you like your sex, drugs, booze, and rock'n'roll hard-core, this is for you!  I was the guest on the all- night radio show on the Catholic university station [go figure!].  Creatures and characters of the stoned night crowded into the small studio.  I did my hit song MY HEART IS IN YOUR ASSHOLE.  Then at some point the money shot turned liquid, if you know what I mean!

Monte Mar - Frank Moore's Shaman's Den



Recorded August 16, 2011.

As many of you know, for over twelve years I have been doing THE SHAMAN'S DEN on my web station http://www.luver.com.  It is a live talk /variety show.  On the show bands from around the world come to play live in our house...  Among other things!  This time a great band saw fit to play in their underwear!  Hey, they are from Los Angeles!

Hey, check out my new SHAMAN'S DEN CHANNEL at http://vimeo.com/channels/shamansden!

The Passions' Conductor, Part 2 - Build, San Francisco, December 1, 2000



In this PART TWO of a six hour piece, a highlight is a long juicy sweaty erotic sexy enactment of my poem THE MAGICAL CAVE LOVERS by nude Linda, Teresa and me on the mat [one of the last mat pieces we did].

The Passions' Conductor, Part 1 - Build, San Francisco, December 1, 2000



This is one of the most sexy erotic explicitly intimate pieces we have done, mainly because of the hot floor dance of Linda and Teresa.  In the band that night was John the Baker, Dr. O and Gio, and later Bob Madigan of FLUFF GRRL.  It was a time of transition.  This was one of the last long pieces we did because age was changing us.  Oh, you may think the  three hour performances that I do today are long.  But I had been doing forty eight hour performances.  So this six hour piece seemed short at the time.  But the days afterwards we felt it much more!

Also I had just dropped the formal structure that I had been using for years.  It had begun to be too predictable.  So this one was totally improvised!

Homeless - street performance



Street performance by Frank Moore and John The Baker.
San Francisco, August 15, 2000.

Well, this is how much of an outlaw I am.  A dance company was being thrown out of their San Francisco studio because of infestation of yuppies into their neighborhood.  There was a street protest planned and a call went out for acts for the street theater outside of the studio the last night.  I answered the call.  But THEY said there was not time for me in their official street protest!  Hint hint hint!  Well, John the Baker and I decided to crash the party and do our own street protest theater, singing HOMELESS, FUCK THE FASCISTS USA, etc. It turned out to be a great piece!

The Intimate Passion: Skin of Unknown Passion - Crazyspace, Los Angeles, Flophouse Festival, June 7, 2003



This second night shows why I shouldn't have any pictures going into a performance.  I thought we would continue going deeper into the tribal intimacy that was there the night before, erotic sexy exploring.  But it quickly became extremely clear that was not to be.  This second night was dealing with resistance, finding ways around blocks, dead ends, bitterness, etc. But considering all of that, it was a reasonably good piece.  Hey, the promoter threatened to sue me...  Always a good sign of effectiveness!
