White Roses Painted Red

Aural Fixation Records PINNA03
23 tracks | 79 minutes

"White Roses Painted Red," the third CD from Smoke & Mirrors, takes the listener on a 23-song journey down the rabbit's hole to Wonderland, a mysterious and dark world that is fanciful, curious and queer, a world of potion and cake, magic mushrooms, mad tea parties and flamingo croquet. Based on the characters from the Lewis Carroll's "The Adventures of Alice in Wonderland" and their experiences, "White Roses Painted Red" follows Alice as she encounters the time-challenged White Rabbit, the menacing Duchess, the elusive Cheshire Cat, the Mad Hatter, the angry Queen of Hearts, the unhappy Mock Turtle, and the other characters of Wonderland.

Make no mistake, this is not children's music

Cry for Happy...

Performance artist and THEORETICAL friend COLIN GORMAN
suddenly passed away last October (2004) of a heart attack.
We'll really miss him and hope to have a suitable description of
his life and work ready to post in the West Wing soon.

For some of us a strange little cult club called BRAVE DOG set some of the stage for the theoretical phenomenon that immediately followed. Nearly all of the postcards that promoted these clandestine events have been scanned.

They're now on view in the Archives...
