Umburkus Returns on CD

My name is David Michael Moore, I play various instruments.....mainly keyboards, drums, and chainsaw, but also accordian, dog bones, witches pot, and the wild schizoid zither, a.k.a. boing box or buzzstick.....which is a family of instruments i make and sell, and the instrument which is at the center of the downhome musical vortex called 'Umburkus Returns'. Born the last century, December 21, in Memphis, TN. I live in Rosedale,MS, a small rivertown on the Mississippi River. I've been 'playing' and composing music several years . In August of 1977 my brother and I rode from Gunnison, MS to Memphis to get some sax reeds. When we hit the city we were eventually stopped by a policeman directing traffic in front of Graceland---------he stopped a long line of cars which we were at the head of, diagonal to the gates of Graceland. My brother clicked on the radio and a voice was saying that Elvis was being rushed to the hospital--------------as we were listening to this we could see an ambulance flanked by motorcycle police front and rear coming down the long winding drive of Graceland........they sped through the gates and that King was gone......along with the cop holding traffic. Like a dream.....but real. Umburkus was someone i used to know in the small leveetown of Gunnison, MS. So was Buster. So was Grocery Sto Feets Girl. Most of the songs are true. No names have been changed to protect anyone. They could care less anyway. As mentioned, 'Umburkus Returns' centers around the Schizoid Zither......a simple hybrid stringed instrument that combines experimental percussion and melody on the same soundboard. It can be plucked like a harp, played with sticks like a santur, set up to bend strings like a koto, or played with a slide and finger picks. It is basically an ornamental soundboard that one can set up and play in different ways. The music on 'Umburkus Returns' was composed thusly: an improvisation was done using any number of various tunings, along with it's 'found object' percussion.......then other 'traditional' instruments were used to flesh out the composition. Instruments used on this work include: Grand Boing Box, several Buzzsticks, Buzzturtle, Baby Buzzbox, Bike Spokes, Chain and Gearplate, Shaker, Trap Set and other Membraneous Percussion, Accordian, Chinese Medicine Ball, Dog Bones, Various Electric Bass, Organ, and Piano. Night. Birds. Hounds. Voice. This Mississippi Delta is one Birth Home to the Blues and there's no place the River hasn't snaked her hips up against.....you can see it easy from those space shots. 'Umburkus Returns'....is an attempt, using rather limited means, to dig into the Red, the Black, Yellow and Gold and anything inbetween, which She keeps nestled close to her everlasting booty.
