QUINTRON AND MISS PUSSYCAT and the DRUM BUDDY: TREME Season Three, Episode 23



HBO's most excellent BOARDWALK EMPIRE is a no-brainer for most folks who check this blog but the New Orleans based drama TREME stands tall as part two of HBO's powerful Sunday night one two punch. Much respect to series creator David Simon for his music heavy take on the culture and flavor of this neighborhood in The Big Easy as they rebuild post Katrina. Some favorite artists and musicians who have appeared on the show include Alan Toussaint, Dr John, Elvis Costello and The Rebirth Brass Band.
Another artist who is new to me and whose raucous live performance in Sunday nights episode 23 had me immediately both listening & looking for a name is QUINTRON AND THE PUSSYCAT.
The attention grabbing instrument that QUINTRON is seen playing at their Halloween gig is his self made DRUM BUDDY, a 4 oscillator, light activated, mechanically rotating synthesiser/drum machine. This contraption that could be described as part Drum Machine, part Synth, part Scratch Turntable and part Theremin. The ignition switch and key to turn it on and off is also a neat touch. The fact that Laurie Anderson and Nels Cline (two unique artists who over the years have provided much enjoyment and command much respect) own two of the only ten units made provides the proverbial icing on the cake.

  2. All indeed is simple. The only thing that matters in this case is great amount of writing services. Each of them offers its own services. They argue you in their blame and wise approach to any task as one with learning writing. For these reasons, a student gets stuck. He tries to find the right service but usually fail. Each group tells the same words. So, should students trust one and all? Many groups deceive people. They promise much but give small. Students say, “Take my college class for me quickly.” In some cases people take money and give nothing at all. Some students complain that they need been deceived and say that each one related firms are a similar. However, it is not truth. It is horrible that charlatans undermine authority of good cheap essay writing service sites. If you belong to those students who get stuck, we can show you the way out.
