There is a VIDEO at the bottom!
I was the Bass player for a cosmic rock band called UFAUX. We played for about 10 years, rehearsing almost every few days during that time. It was an amazing thing for me. One I will always treasure. When the band broke up I quit playing. No music came close to ours... I was heartbroken and sad it was over.
I still miss my friends, Jim and Susan, who have moved on to others experiences in their lives. I wish them a safe journey, and all the happiness available in life.
This page is dedicated to that great memory of what we were together, and the incredible music we created together. Just below is what remains of the UFAUX.com website. I hope you enjoy the fun it suggests we experienced as a musical family.
The story below, Paper Saucers, was written by Susan Gordon.
P A P E R S A U C E R S
is was our story...(Song titles are in color!)
*AN OBJECT DESCENDED FROM THE ROCKIN PART OF THE COSMOS*
(All Living In Different Parts Of The World!!!)
WERE WITNESS TO THE EVENT.
ALL THREE, THOUGH SEPARATED BY GREAT DISTANCES, WERE SURROUNDED BY A RIPPIN KALEIDOSCOPEIC EFFECT THAT FORMED IN THE SHAPE OF AN ORCHID. THEY WERE FOREVER WEIRDED OUT AS MAJOR LIGHT AND MUSIC FILLED THE DARKNESS!
LED BY INNERVISION AND FUNKY OLD MEN, WE LEFT OUR HOMES TO BEGIN OUR JOURNEY.
TRAVELLING, SEARCHING FOR THE MISSING
PART OF OUR BRAINS, WE TIRELESSLY DANCED
A TECHNO-BOP FOR YEARS.
DURING OUR FIRST YEARS WE WOULD ASK HIPPIES WE MET ON THE ROAD,
" WHAT ABOUT THEWRECK?"
WHAT WAS THE MESSAGE WE
HAD BEEN GIVEN AND WHY IT WAS SO IMPORTANT!?!
ONLY LOUD MUSIC COULD DESCRIBE THE FORCE THAT PROPELLED US
UPON OUR PATH.
WE JOINED WITH THE MIDNIGHT DANCERAND
OUR FEET WERE TOUCHED BY THE WINGS OF DESIRE.
THE MOONCHILD BEAMED LIKE A CHESHIRE CAT
AS WE WITNESSED THE FUTURE PAST OF EL CID.
WE LISTENED WITH A REALLY GOOD SET OF HEADPHONES
AS THE STARS BEGAN THEIR MARCH TO THE SEA.
WE LIVED THE LEGEND...
IT SPOKE OF A TIME WHEN THE WORLD WOULD ROCK! A TIME WHEN THE ANCIENT ONES WOULD RETURN WITH A BANG AND A KILLER P.A., AND THE HEARTS OF EVERYONE THAT WITNESSED THE LIGHT AND HEARD THE MUSIC, WOULD FINALLY BEAT ALOT FASTER.
THAT TIME IS NOW AND THIS IS THE MESSAGE
WE WERE ASKED TO DELIVER TO YOU...
|YOUR JEANS WILL BE UNTWISTED!|
WE PLAY THE FIREDANCE FOR THOSE ANCIENT ONES
WHO UNDERSTOOD WHAT D-909 WAS REALLY ABOUT.
WE LISTENED FOR THE KALL FROM THE ZIPSTERS OF D-WON.
THEY ARE THE SHINY MASTERS OF A.S.M(Alien Sex Magic).
IT WAS INDIAN SUMMER AND WE EACH EXPERIENCED A TRIPPY FLASHBACK TO THE DAYS THAT BLENDED INTO A MULTICOLOR EXPLOSION LATER CALLED PIXELS AT AN EXHIBITION.
THE ANCIENT ONES POINTED OUT SATURN RISING THROUGH LOVES DOOR. THEY HAD ONCE SEEN EXCALIBER RISING ON TV AND ATTEMPTED
TO UNRAVEL OUR MINDS DURING A CHALLENGING GAME OF TWISTER.
THE CHILDREN OF THE STARS HAD HEARD OF OUR VOYAGE. WITH THEIR WAVEY MINDS PIND TO THE WIND, THEY VENTURED TOWARD US AS WE MADE A RETURN TO GATEWAY, PAST THE HIGHLANDER WHERE KALINDA STARSHIP WAS WAITING.
WE WATCHED A DESERT MIRAGE WITH REALLY BLURRY EYES
AS WE WAITED WITH THE OTHERS WHO JOINED US.
EVERYONE HAD BROUGHT THEIR TWISTED JEANS ALONG, HOPING FOR SOME HELP...
TOGETHER, WE WITNESSED THE ARRIVAL OF THE ANCIENT MASTERS
FROM THE STARS
And Couldn't Wait To Get Into Something More Comfortable...
A VERY SPACEY, TRUE, UFAUX STORY
So now they have a bunch of shows under their belts.
The drummer has gotten kind of wild and acquired nick-names such as
"Taboo Electrique" and "Tank Girl".
Their keyboard player frequently appears to have three hands
and can even use his nose when necessary to punch a button.
You can't help but notice the size of the bass player's feet (15)
because he likes to bop around a lot, inciting the audience to near-riot.
There's a lot of very advanced material in these people's heads.
They can all talk 'til the cows come home on topics that'll make you loopy.
So it all actually comes out in the music and video, which keeps people's
eyes from glazing over. They do it to your mind-body-mind-body-mind-body-etc.
until your freakin' chakras are spinning like dervishes in the outer dimensions.
By then, no words are necessary, because you too, will have "gotten it".
They say we sound like "Pink Floyd", "Alan Parsons", "Tangerine Dream", "Yes" and "Emerson, Lake and Palmer" all rolled into one! Who, you ask? Well, everyone who comes by the studios at Village Labs ,and anyone that attends one of our exceptional and rare concerts!
Our performance is a multimedia spectacular! Lights, fog machines, lasers, and a huge video projector with the most dazziling computer animation anyone has ever seen are combined with the most fantastic musical score that will inspire and excite any audience! That's what a UFAUX show is like to hear about... now, you need to see one, right! Ok, there is a secret plan in the works that soon brings UFAUX - The Space Opera to the world. I can't tell you about this yet (I'm not even supposed to mention it - don't tell anyone I told you this, Ok!), but believe me - this is BIG ...
So, why haven't you heard about us after 8 years of developing this special music? Well, we don't play out often... It's usually because Jim is busy developing his MEGA company, Susan is attending a world class equestrian event or I'm off on another expedition into Central or South America discovering the mysteries of "The Celestine Prophecy" or chatting with Pleaidiens.
When we perform it's a special event, and YOU are always invited! If you would like a special collectors (laminated) "Admit - all areas pass" just drop UFAUX a line It won'treally get you in for free, but it sure looks great hanging from your mirror! Wait, there's more - how about a dandy UFAUX T-Shirt! Those
are were available, too! These are were 100% Cotton, black T-Shirts with the UFAUX logo screen printed across the front. These are VERY GROOVEY! and sure to become collectors items. If you want one of either of these items the cost is $24.95 for the T-Shirt and $8 for the "Admission" pass. Send us an E-Mail to inquire about ordering one (no longer available... sorry).
