Tim Ray in Discorder

Just interviewed Vancouver "New Wave"/punk/anti-folk pioneer, painter, and filmmaker Tim Ray for Discorder, about some really cool, relatively unheard music of his, his time as a visual artist in New York, and various other such things; alas, Discorder didn't use any of the images he passed on! Thought I'd post them here so people could see his work and what Tim looks like these days. Photo by Victoria Hollingum, taken at the Pointed Sticks' Vancouver afternoon reunion show, where I ran into Tim in the audience. Thanks, Vic!

(By the way, the interview also features quotes from the Pointed Sticks' Bill Napier Hemy and music critic and guitarist Alex Varty, who were both in one of Tim's bands together and have fun stories to tell). Alex Varty is dying to get into a band, last I heard, so if anyone needs a twisted avant-guitarist for their project - seek him out!

Lenore -

Name's Allan, not Mark. It's not online. Email me (there's some sort of "contact me" option through this blog - go poke around my profile or such) and I'll send you a copy, if you like.
