Dead Flowers Productions is very proud to present Gregg Turner co-founding member of LA punk-rock legends The Angry Samoans (where he was veteran co-singer/songwriter and guitarist for over 15 years), not to mention the man behind some stellar eviscerating rock journalism at Creem Magazine. Gregg is touring in support of his killer solo album, Gregg Turner Plays The Hits.
Currently a mathematics professor at a liberal arts university in New Mexico, Turner spends free moments singing about such things as "The Pharmacist From Walgreens," "Satan's Bride," and "I Dreamed I Met Lou Reed," while offering inspired cover versions of Roky Erickson's "Starry Eyes," Lou Reed's 1964 hot rod opus "Cycle Annie," as well as a new apocalyptic spin on P.F. Sloan's "Eve Of Destruction." Backing Turner up on most of these tunes is the legendary Billy Bill Miller on electric autoharp, who gained notoriety as a member of The Aliens, Roky Erickson's backing band in the '70s and 80's.

In July 2004, New Originals founder and guitarist Paul Crane assembled a motley crew consisting of bassist Paul Gil and the first of many drummers to launch a live band karaoke night at Magnetic Field (R.I.P.) on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn. Steve Reynolds stumbled into the bar eight months later to sing some Cheap Trick and became the band's MC in October 2005. And Scott Treude finally put a stop to the rotating cast of drummers in August 2007.
Somehow Bunnie England & The New Originals have made it to 10 years old. Knee issues, back issues, high blood pressure, surfing injuries, stifling allergies and even the closing of two venues hasn’t stopped them from bringing their loud and wasted brand of live band karaoke to the masses. So please help celebrate their 10th anniversary... It’ll be a special night you won’t want to miss!
Dead Flowers got its start as a celebrated music-centered online platform for its writers' passions and obsessions. It was a place to read about the classics reconsidered, the obscure brought into the spotlight, the lost re-found, and the so-called "marginal" made to matter... Those elements animate Dead Flowers Productions, an enterprise devoted to managing, booking, and promoting bands and projects that ignite those same passions.
