"jesus christ was descended from bacteria!"

Thus spake Copernicus — not the renaissance heliocentricist, but the 1980s avant-garde poet...




Copernicus is a New York based poet and musician, who combines avant-garde poetry with improvisational music, with a wide range of influences (jazz, rock, experimental and electronic music). He usually collaborates with hired musicians and has self-published at least eight albums since the mid-1980s.



This English release on Dead Man's Curve is a re-mixed compilation taken from his first two albums: Nothing Exists and Victim of the Sky (originally released on NeverMore in the US).

The title track is particularly entertaining, I was going to reproduce the verse here but decided the impact is better heard as intended...

"One listen to Copernicus is worth 10,000 music videos."
-Sound Choice

decide for yourself:

that is the voice of Brains from Thunderbirds. Does the sound itself drive you crazy or not knowing who it is?

It's funny. My wife and I argued over where it was from. I could have swore it was from Bugs Bunny. She was sure it wasn't, being the true Bugs Bunny fan that she is. Now I have to tell her she won the bet.

I vaguelly remember him from years ago, but never had a chance to check it out 'till now.
Kinda reminds me of Chrome-meets-Hawkwind at dinner theater.

You are really running an interesting, and highly entertaining blogside and you seem 2 have a broad musical taste. Go on making my day....

Bytheway hermanthegerman. I once
(in 1989/1990) met a guy from osnabrück/germany in college station, texas, whose name was Hermann and who called himself "Hermann the German".

people say he now lives in Germany again and works as an civil engineer. You ´re the same guy, hermanthegerman?
