The Captain Goes WHAM-O!


Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus and Captain Heartlock display their respective gang signs at WHAM-O WATUSI!

Captain Heartlock has got to be one of the busiest musicians in town. He’s in three bands: Madam Robot and the Lust Brigade, The Electric Mess and The Othermen. All of the bands are good, play often and make sound recordings. Plus, he is often seen around town DJing with his boss records. It was in the latter capacity for which he was employed at the Bootleg Bar on December 5 for WHAM-O WATUSI, hosted by Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus.



Captain Heartlock peruses through his box of 45s in order to select the perfect record to play at WHAM-O WATUSI!

The good Captain is often referred to as a “psychedelic fellow,” and indeed he played many records on this evening that fell into that category—even a few that were fairly recently recorded, yet had a groovy sound. At one point a group of young ladies asked Captain Heartlock to play some girl group records and he complied heartily.  He also played some great R&B and soul records. Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus, on the other hand, stuck to the same old stuff he always plays—R&B, Go-Go, Garage Rock, Funk, Soul, Ska, and other jumpin’ jive. I guess you had to have been there…

Here’s a list of all the records played by Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus:


None of these records are for sale.
