Moonalice poster by Chris Shaw
According to Moonalice legend, sacred places exist where the magical beat of Confusionism overwhelms gravity and other forces of nature. Today, Sir Sinjin led us to Confusion Hill, a roadside attraction just south of Garberville, where time fluctuates, balls and water flow uphill, and nothing is quite as you would expect. So powerful was the magic emanating from Confusion Hill that both Hardwood and Chubby felt its effects from miles away. Of course, being Confusionists they weren’t sure what they were feeling.
We played today’s show for Alton Kelley, one of the great artists of the 20th Century. With his partner, Stanley Mouse, Kelley was a giant in the San Francisco poster art revolution of the mid-60s. Kelley died today and we miss him already.
