Cut to the chase

B

Exhibiting the good timing you'd expect of a drummer, Duncan Black--currently booking the Orbit Room and formerly of Mousetrap, Dooms U.K., and Union Watts--has joined Slowpoke just as the band signed with Geffen Records. The group has an as-of-yet-unnamed album already in the can and is working on its contribution to One Ton Record's Sandy Does Dallas, the soundtrack to Grease as done by local bands. Black says the band plans to "play like crazy" and establish a regional base upon which it can rely.

SBBB resolved
The answer is, of course, singer-songwriter Marshall Crenshaw, pictured here (figure 2) in mufti, awaiting his next high-impact scene. "Mr. Burroughs has to hold the coffee cup for how long? Get me Marshall Crenshaw!" Our extra credit answer--the words to the Burroughs Bits Breakfast Cereal Song--is of course "He's the leader/He's the god/of a thousand bassists/on the nod." Talk about a giveaway! If you answered either question correctly, congratulations, and 'bye.

Still here? Street Beat does not know who the doo-dah man is, nor does it necessarily think it would be a good idea to "truck" like him, but you can still funnel all quips, slips, and tips our way at Matt_Weitz@dallasobserver.com. Our e-mail has been a tad Yeltsinish lately, so if you've received no response to an earlier message, forgive and please try again. Bye for real now.
