Well, here it is, the word from the horses mouth about all things
Bolshoi; past present, and future.
As far as the past goes, if you're reading this you probably
know most of it. If not got to Beggars.com, as I'm sick of talking
about the history of that part of my existence.
I haven't seen or heard from Nick or Jan in years. Last I heard,
Nick was in London and Jan was in L.A., California (if either
of you fellows are reading this, please get in touch...I don't
want to put a phone number here for obvious reasons). Paul is
in Seatle and we talk often (check out his web site electronicmusic.com).
We collaborated on the track "Majorette" which you
can down load here. We plan to work a lot more together in the
I have spent the last five years in the U.S.A. buggering about.
However, the last two of them I spent closeted in the studio.
I originally intended to make a solo album, but as time went
by some songs took on a distinctively Bolshoi character. Having
amassed some forty songs, I decided to release two CDs; one of
the more "Trevorish" material, and one of the "Bolshoi-y"
The Trevor Tanner CD will be called "Master of the World,"
and you can hear the title track on the "AWay - best of
the Bolshoi" compilation available from Beggars Banquet.
The "Bolshoi-y" material will be monikered "Overdriver
2000." Now, the fact that the other three members don't
appear on this stuff (apart from Paul on the aforementioned "Majorette"),
means that obviously I'm not going to pretend that it's the original
band. But it's still me, so at the risk of sounding big-headed
(who, moi?), I still think the Bolshoi is a relevant " tag."
So just to get it straight, I'll be calling it "The New
Bolshoi." That way everyone will know what's what , without
going..."what's up?" So now we all know where we are.
The new CDs will be released this summer and I'll be out and
about, here and there for a while...playing somewhere near you
with "The New Bolshoi," the band of friends and musical
geniuses (ha), who have graciously deigned to help me out. Look
on the picture page for the full horror.
Anyway - thanks for reading this drivel, and with the grace of
God and a thousand angels, I'll see you soon.
