Have any of you ever heard of Tom Ze? I went to the opening of the film on him last night...never heard of the guy before but hot damn what a character....i would really like chekc out one of his shows. The guy does like 5 encores and just makes shit up as he goes. If the movie opens wide you guys have to check it out.

I saw Tom Ze play with Tortoise once. It ruled my face. He is a Tropicalia legend.

yeah the guy was nuts...they showed in the movie that on the day of the London Bombings he was performing somewhere and was asking everyone who set the bombs off and everyone would sing "Gergio Bushhhhhh Gergio Bushhhhh"

Tom Ze is a singing journalist. He also worked at a Gas Station through the 80s because his music was so unknown, and then David Byrne rereleased some of his stuff through Luaka Bop. His self-titled 1970 album is a masterpiece.

Tom Ze would be excellent. I've been a fan only a short time, but love his music.
