NIGHT SQUAD • BACK BURNERS • ROB*A*LOU
Dead Flowers Productions is very proud to present Gregg Turner co-founding member of LA punk-rock legends The Angry Samoans (where he was veteran co-singer/songwriter and guitarist for over 15 years), not to mention the man behind some stellar eviscerating rock journalism at Creem Magazine. Gregg is touring in support of his killer solo album, Gregg Turner Plays The Hits.
Currently a mathematics professor at a liberal arts university in New Mexico, Turner spends free moments singing about such things as "The Pharmacist From Walgreens," "Satan's Bride," and "I Dreamed I Met Lou Reed," while offering inspired cover versions of Roky Erickson's "Starry Eyes," Lou Reed's 1964 hot rod opus "Cycle Annie," as well as a new apocalyptic spin on P.F. Sloan's "Eve Of Destruction." Backing Turner up on most of these tunes is the legendary Billy Bill Miller on electric autoharp, who gained notoriety as a member of The Aliens, Roky Erickson's backing band in the '70s and 80's.
