TMP 128 Rev. Fred Lane Gets Pataphysical

The strip-mine crooner burst onto the scene with Tuscaloosa art agitators the Raudelunas Pataphysical Revue, fronting No Wave big band Ron ‘Pate & His Debonaires. Their live record and the subsequent studio albums, “From the One That Cut You” and “Car Radio Jerome,” established them as a mythic presence in the southern underground. Years out of sight and scarcity of the discs heightened the mystery surrounding the singer. Fred Lane’s reemergence after 35 years with the “Icepick to the Moon” album and documentary and the recent cover of his "I Talk To My Haircut" by the Squirrel Nut Zippers has delighted fans and frightened foes from coast to coast.
