Mondo Gen.

July 26, 2007 at 6:21 am (Rock)


Greetings from ComicCon 2007 in San Diego…

Remember that album by the Ramones called “Mondo Bizaro”????? It was a great overlooked piece of art.

A few bites of rock news, Lonn Friend is teaming up with Evan and Tera. We had lunch with him on Monday and he filled us in on all the details. More info on the podcast regarding this but I can tell you it is going to be a love story.

I spoke with Nick O. on the phone yesterday and he confirmed that Mondo Generator does have to leave Ozzfest… He enjoyed the few shows that he did on the tour but right now his attention is needed elsewhere. He’ll see us back on the road this fall, in what promises to be an awesome double package tour with everyone’s favorite Scandinavian maniacs.

If you are at ComicCon, stop by the Sci Fi Channel table and say, “hello.”

Here is a list of all the actors we will on hand this year:

Amanda Tapping (Stargate)
David Hewlett (Stargate)
Jewel Staite (Stargate/Firefly)
Joe Flanigan (Stargate)
Colin Ferguson (Eureka)
Salli Richardson (Eureka)
Ed Quinn (Eureka)
Joe Morton (Eureka)
Jordan Hinson (Eureka)
Feedback (Superhero)
Mary McDonnell (BSG)
Katee Sackoff (BSG)
Tricia Helfer (BSG)
Kathleen Robertson (Tin Man)
Eric Johnson (Flash)
Gina Holden (Flash)

We will also have some of the writers and producers from our shows joining us…. (Stan Lee, Ron Moore, Andy Sheer and more.)

Watch Stan Lee’s Who Wants To Be A Superhero on Sci Fi tomorrow night. This premiere episode of season 2 has a brief appearance of the great CC Banana. I hooked it up for him.
