Moist Paula On Vid

Well, this was Moisturizer, the instrumental rock band I had for 11 years – you can still like us on Facebook and our Myspace page is still up but we never check it.

Here a couple of songs from a project very dear to my heart – Melvin Van Peebles wid Laxative – from our show at Zebulon in Brooklyn on March 1, 2011. The songs are “Chippin'” and “Quittin’ Time”

I met Vivien Goldman whose single “Launderette” I owned and loved 30 years ago …. I decided to perform the song with a mash up of a Melvin Van Peebles song “Ain’t Love Grand” at the launch party for a new literary magazine, “Coon Bidness” in which I’d written a review of one of Melvin’s books. Vivien said she had never performed the song live so I invited her to join me and what we got is the world premiere/30th anniversary version!

Here’s a clip from a performance I did at All Tomorrows Parties Festival in the UK in 2007. The song is “Mofongo Raincheck” and it’s from “Secret Life of Secretary”, the album I released under the moniker “Secretary” in 2007. Secretary is on myspace

TV On The Radio took me out on the fire escape on Letterman

Rev. Vince and jamming with The World Famous Roots Crew


Here’s the latest Melvin Van Peebles Wid Laxative video; the song is Lilly Done The Zampoughie Every Time I Pulled Her CoatTails.
