Forget About Lolla '97, Nuttstalk '97 Is Here!

Old Trulio Disgracias gig poster.

You can have your Lollapalooza's and your H.O.R.D.E.'s, but just remember that

neither of those standard-issue rock festivals will traffic in the barely-legal

trade known as "Nuttmeg Music."

Fishbone's Norwood Fisher, as he warned in

these very pages a few months ago, will be taking his roving, roaming

P-Funk-inspired funk circus on the road from mid-April through early June with

a line-up of bands that includes everyone from ska upkeepers the Skeletones to

the reformed Thelonious Monster.

Nuttstalk '97, which will feature DJ sets

in-between bands, finds Fisher sharing the stage with Joi, Weapon of Choice,

Super 8, former Red Hot Chili Pepper John Frusciante, the Street Walkin'

Cheetas and, of course, the peace de resistance, the supergroup Trulio


This time around Trulio, whose past shows have included cameos

from George Clinton, Flea and N'Dea Davenport (Brand New Heavies) alongside a

band with a membership that fluctuates between 20 and 38 members, will include

three members of Fishbone, three ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers and past and current

members of Weapon of Choice, Spearhead, the Untouchables, Super 8, Circle Jerks

and P-Funk.
