on Stochastic Hit Parade / A440 with Bethany Ryker

Now - over two years later - Ellery rejoins the Stochastic Hit Parade for a rare duo performance with British vocalist Jessica Constable while duly celebrating a CD release of the then unknown material by Rodd (now on Ecstasy to Frenzy, Tzadik records) and the DVD release Off the Charts: The Song-Poem Story, where Ellery speaks candidly about his father's adventures in the send-us-your-lyrics industry. Ellery will also be joining NRBQ at a big event of Song Poem music and films, happening at North Six in Brooklyn on February 14th. Fasten your dials as Bethany and Ellery explore yet another dimension in legacy of Rodd Keith and WFMU. Check the 1996 LCD article for the full history.
