An old friend releases his 30th album and it's pretty darned good.

Anton Barbeau (cousin of actress Adrien Barbeau) was born and raised in Sacramento, but some 20 years ago he made off to Europe and generally has stayed. I've lost track with him over the years, but another old friend (now in scotland) has stayed in contact via FB and says that his latest album is getting some real acclaim over there.

It's called Manbird: an answer to Ladybird (the story of a young girl raised in sacramento that just couldn't wait to get the hell out - Anton was more patient).

Anyway, I was never a big fan of his music - it just isn't my thing, but I loved going to see him play. He's a very quiet, shy kinda guy that comes alive on stage and always drew the best musicians in town to his band. A really great guy. Very fun stage performances. They say it sounds a bit like XTC ( I wouldn't know)

Here's a typically strange Manbird title track music video: [www.youtube.com] but I like it.

His music is on itunes if you want more: [itunes.apple.com]

She was, indeed, as well as Escape from New York. Also appeared as Bea Arthur’s daughter on Maude.



It is what it is.
