Pulpo & the Psychonauts--Coming Soon
Pulpo & the Psychonauts tells the story of “Pulpo” an octopus who is captured in a fishing net and becomes a pet at the Institute for Intelligent Alien Communication, an organization founded by Dr. Finkklestean, an eccentric billionaire to develop electronic technolgogies to communicate with extra-terrestrials. The group of misfits that have been assembled for this task have been disheartened by the recent passing of Dr. Finkklestean and are struggling to find a direction when Bingle and Sitar Swami arrive the research takes an unexpected direction.
Pulpo & the Psychonauts is a set of five interlinked stories that pick up where Skin Kazoo left off. The other titles in the set are:
- Space Boy, the story of a boy named Daniel who loves to play the theremin and is bullied because of it.
- The Analog Oasis the continuation of Space Boy is about Daniel’s journey under the sea.
- Sitar Swami Masterof the Cosmic Raga is the story of Daniel’s father.
- Pulpo and The Psychonauts the meeting of Bingle, Pulpo and Sitar Swami.
- Jimi Hendrix Shrine the story of debut of Pulpo & the Psychonauts record, “new dimensions in sound, an intergalactic jametory revelation”
I hope to offer these in a hand painted box set like the one in the photo above, but I need the financial resources to do so. Please buy a copy of the Art of Skin Kazoo to help me realize this project. (The text and lyrics are done).
Excerpt from “Space Boy” the first in Pulpo& the Psychonauts series.
I had a dream that An octopus named Pulpo formed a band and played in the Sky.
Bigfoot played bass.
The Loch Ness Monster played a flute.
Jon Bonham played the drums.
Beethoven played the piano.
Jimi Hendrix played the guitar.
Rihanna sang “Shoobie Doobie Bop Bop.”
Pulpo played 8 theremins and a brontosaurus ate a hero sandwich.
They played like thunder above the school where the kids beat me up and the kids ran. Mike ran the fastest.
When I went to school the psychologist called me out of class and began asking me about my life at home and I could see he was saying it was my fault that I got bullied and then I gave up hope that he would help me.
Then after I told my dream and played the theremin at Camp, Mike and Bill two kids from New Jersey tripped me and my theremin broke. So I just gave up all hope and decided to just walk into the sea and let it swallow me.
[When a fisherman brought me back to land and my life began]]
This is “Like an Alien Refugee” one of the tunes that will appear on Pulpo & the Psychonauts.
I am currently recording music that will accompany the Pulpo and the Psychonauts story and will be releasing it as I make it.
