A PUPPET SHOW
A Puppet Show is a record documenting an interactive, moving art installation at Glow festival in Santa Monica. Steven Hull created a rotating stage featuring a marionette show based on the short story A Fragment from the Lives of the Conquistadors by Tony White. The stage, situated behind the historic arbor in Crescent Bay Park, displayed Hull’s sculptures of conquistadors whose hands detach and become the animated marionettes. There were several performances throughout the night featuring puppeteers and musicians. The LP features a brilliant new ‘noise jam’ by Gibby Haynes, of the legendary band Butthole Surfers, and music by the Tanya Haden, Petra Haden and Anna Huff. Included is a poster with Tony Whites story and comprehensive sleeve notes by Christopher Schnieders.
Included in set: Gatefold sleeve with double sided 12″ in yellow and pink swirl or blue, poster with story and sleeve notes.
