Bryan Heisenburg announces summer plans
Bryan Heisenburg expressed dismay that his band's touring partners, The Repeatles,
had folded up their tent for the time being. "They are a band with such talent and potential.
I hope they will return sometime soon." However, Bryan is not one to sit still. He'll be
parting ways with friends Chester Wiggins and Trevor Dare for the summer to work with drummer
Puggsy Rhodes on a new album.
"The time is right to re-introduce swing music to a new generation." proclaimed Heisenburg.
Bryan and Puggsy will be working with The Glenn Miller Orchestra to produce an album of 20's
big band music with lively songs. The album "Big Daddy Heisenburg" makes it debut to the world
this July. The band will be touring dance halls and American Legions this summer.
Guitar Players Tour Together
Chester Wiggins and Trevor Dare won't be idle while Heisenburg is off this summer.
Wiggins and Dare will join Heisenburg's son, Hezekiah Heisenburg, along with guitar Barry
Gunslinger (from the death metal band Metal Death) and guitar virtuoso Tremolo on the "Wall of
Guitar '03 Tour." The five guitarists will each play a solo set and then a play a set together
during a summer tour coming to a town near you soon!
REPEATLES HIT WITH LAWSUIT
Lawyers representing the estates of John Lennon, and George Harrison and also lawyers
representing Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney have submitted a lawsuit to the local Atlanta
judicial courts insisting on a "cease and desist" order against musicians Bryan Heisenburg,
Puggsy Rhodes, Chester Wigginsworth, and Trevor Dare. The musicians are being sued for
illegally representing themselves as hosting the reincarnated spirits of the four band members
of the band, The Beatles. The band, The Repeatles, plays a mix of Beatles covers, and original
Beatles inspired music and has been wildly popular in the United States.
"While it's quite possible our client's soul has been reincarnated. The odds that it has
inhabited one of these men is highly unlikely", says the lawyer representing John Lennon's
estate. George Harrison's estate's lawyer issued a similar statement. Since DNA tests in this
case would prove to be of very little use, the lawyers are considering issuing a subpoena to
a local seer to hold a sťance to get proof of the location of their client's spirits. The
lawyers representing Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney insisted that their client's spirits are
still residing comfortably in their client's bodies.
The band's leader and bass player, Bryan Heisenburg issued a brief statement reading:
"We regret to announce that no further shows by the Repeatles will be played while we are
settling legal matters. However, shows by The Heisenburg Principle will continue as scheduled
as we have big plans for the upcoming summer."
Heisenburg Principle to open for The Repeatles
Bryan Heisenburg was particularly excited to announce that his band, The Heisenburg Principle,
will be opening for the The Repeatles, this spring. An old pro, Heisenburg knows a thing or two
about upcoming bands and he says that he expects a bright and exciting future for The Repeatles,
"This band is about to take off, and we're just thrilled to be opening for them." No word yet
on who will be in the band with Heisenburg when they tour. Bryan wasn't too specific, but he
hinted that after the spring tour, he will be taking yet another new direction with The Heisenburg
Principle during 2003 "I think it's going to be really cutting edge, and the kids are really
going to love it."
A Heisenburg Principle Reunion, but not like you expected
Trevor Dare, Bryan Hesienburg, and Chester Wiggins met with the press today to answer questions
about a "reunion", but not of the Heisenburg Principle. The three musicians displayed their unusual
sense of humor today by referring to themselves as reincarnated rock stars. Bryan Heisenburg
called himself McCall McPartney and would only answer questions when the media referred to him as
that. Chester Wiggins (Harris Georgison) would only answer questions through his agent, who was
apparently the other guitar player, Trevor Dare (Len Johnson).
"We think America is a great country, you know? And we think our kind of music could do well
here," McPartney stated in a mock-British accent. He regretted that drummer Singh O'Rawr could
not join them, due to an infection of the West Nile Virus, but was happy to announce that veteran
drummer Wes Weston would be joining them on drums and in the studio. The band, known as the
Repeatles, will be recording an album in 2003, and doing a short tour to support the album.
The album, titled Instant Karma Got Us, will feature songs that will remind the listener of a
band that I think all of us are familar with.
The press asked a few questions about The Repeatles, but seemed more interested in asking
questions about each of the individual's personal musical endeavours.
When asked about the upcoming tribute album, McPartney responded, "Bryan has the tribute
album just about wrapped up. We are going to add more song and skip it under the wire onto
his album. Bryan has promised to leave us some space for it. The release date should be
January 1st as planned." Everyone snickered every time that McPartney, or is it Hesienburg,
referred to himself in the third person.
Someone asked Chester Wiggins about the status of the Medusa album _Fling Da Ring, Bling, Bling_,
and Wiggins grumbed, "Legend of Zelda." Dare responded that Chester tells him that project is
continuing to experience unexpected delays. Dare was also asked why he was returning to
performing music after producing soundtracks for movies so long. Trevor explained that he
hopes to continue producing soundtracks, but that unwise investing in ill-fated movies like
"Waterworld 2" and "Under Siege 3" have lost him a lot of money. (The fact that his 401(k)
was 100% Enron stock didn't help, either) "Frankly, I need the cash."
McCall McPartney encouraged everyone to come out to their concerts next spring. "We think
our show at the Hollywood Bowl is going to be bloody good, yah?"
Introducing the Repeatles!
The Repeatles are:
McCall McPartney : Bass guitars, vocals
Singh O'Rawr: Drums, vocals
Harris Georgison: Guitars, vocals
Len Johnson: Guitars, vocals
Four famous musicians on the Good Times label have reunited and claiming to be the
reincarnated spirits of an anonymous band, plan to produce an album of British rock,
featuring three part harmonies about wistful love songs. The album, Instant Karma Got Us,
should be released sometime in early 2003. The Repeatles have signed with Good Times and are
proud to announce that they will also be featured on the upcoming tribute album, Thank You
Very Much, Domo Arigato.
Guess the Repeatles!!
Who are the Repeatles? Guess which bodies of famous musicians from the Heisenburg
Principle have been inhabited by reincarnated spirits and you could win a prize! Stay
tuned for more information soon.
Whippensworth and Rhodes contract tragic illness
Doctors at a Lafayette, Louisiana hospital report that Puggsy Rhodes and Stumpy
Whippensworth, both drummers for the rock band, The Heisenburg Principle, have each
contracted the mysterious "West Nile Virus." The two drummers have each played for the
band over its long and storied history. Rhodes is also currently the band's lead singer.
Doctors are unsure how the two men may have gotten the disease, but suspect they
may have contracted it while playing water polo in a fetid, mosquito-ridden swamp while
visiting friends in Boog Hollow Bayou, Louisiana.
Rhodes and Whippensworth are expected to make a full recovery, however, their
illness could put a delay in Bryan Heisenburg's plans to produce a tribute album for the
fallen keyboard great, Domo Arigato. Neither will be able to have the strength to play
drums during the next few months which could potentially cause Heisenburg to
miss his January 1 release date for the tribute album.
Heisenburg first contacted that guy who plays drums on the street at Atlanta
Braves games, but with the threat of an impending baseball strike, he has apparently
taken a new job washing car windows on the corner of an Atlanta street and could
not be reached. Bryan next tried contacting a favorite drummer of his, Keith Moon, but was
dismayed to find out he was dead and has been for quite some time.
Heisenburg was about to put in a call to Mick Fleetwood to collect on some old gambling
debts when he learned that the aging veteran drummer, Wes Weston, was available.
Weston played in the same band as Arigato, the 80's synthesizer band Culture Shock, and
could immediately fill in on many of the tribute songs that he already knows. Bryan has
counted this as a "fortunate turn of events" and could be using the drummer on several
tracks while Rhodes and Whippensworth recover.
Dare to produce Waterworld II soundtrack.
Hollywood soundtrack producer and former Heisenburg Principle guitarist, Trevor Dare,
has signed on to create the soundtrack to the upcoming sequel of the Kevin Costner movie,
"Waterworld." The movie is still currently in the early stages of being written. Costner
has turned down the lead role and the directors are currently looking for a replacement to
play the lead character in the movie. Filming begins in September.
Dare, quite a fan of the original movie, will play all instruments and write the score
for the movie. He has locked himself away in his Los Angeles studio to begin working on the
score. Trevor has also invested quite deeply into the movie out of his own pockets, signing
on as an executive producer. Recently, Trevor was the talk of Hollywood rumor mills as he
was spotted with actress Kirsten Dunst on more than one occasion around town. Reportedly,
Dare met Dunst while contributing some rhythm guitar tracks to the "Spiderman" soundtrack
(it is also reported that Trevor is quite unhappy with music producer Danny Elfman for
leaving him off of the credits for the contributed guitar tracks. He believes Elfman is
bitter for losing the Waterworld II job to him.) Dare denies any romantic involvement
with the Spiderman actress.

The Heisenburg Principle
Delays continue to plague new Medusa album.
Guitar player Chester Wiggins has been vocal about the slow progress of the new Medusa album,
but it appears his comments have fallen on deaf ears with the rest of the band. The new album is
now almost a month late to Rivendell Records. The band has been promising a bold new sound merging
progressive rock with medieval music and hip-hop gangster rap. So far, though all that the band has
produced has been a half-finished demo song in MP3 on their web site.
Wiggins confirmed rumors of Johann Sebastian Smith's relapse into his addiction with video game
systems in last month's Obscure Guitar Player. Wiggins says that Smith started first with a
PlayStation 2, but now he has downloaded an Atari emulator from the Internet and installed it on the
studio computer. Chester guesses that Smith has since downloaded some 400 different software
replications of old Atari cartridges. Shaking his head, Wiggins says, "He even went so far as to
erase a glorious 25-minute instrumental that we did in 69/64 meter so that he could download
'Yars Revenge' onto the computer. Tragic."
The record label is increasing pressure on the band, already taking away Master Big Pimpin's
Clippers season tickets for next season. In an interview, Master Big Pimpin' responded, "Next time
I see Smith, I'm gonna cap dat mutha."
_Fling Da Ring, Bling, Bling_ was to have been released at the beginning of May. No release date
has been announced yet.
BANDS ANNOUNCED FOR DOMO ARIGATO TRIBUTE
Bryan Heisenburg and Puggsy Rhodes are excited to be producing a tribute album for Japanese
rave artist, Domo Arigato. The album _Thank You Very Much, Domo Arigato_ will be released at
the end of 2002 to coincide with Arigato's tragic suicide. After frequent phone calls, begging,
and bribes, a group of bands have agreed to perform some of Arigato's more famous songs.
"We are excited to be creating this tribute to Arigato", says producer Bryan Heisenburg.
"His work and the work of the band Culture Shock had a huge influence on us in the 80's,
particularly on the _Danger, Robots!_ album. We hope this is a small way of remembering him."
"I remember listening to his songs a lot in 1988." Puggsy Rhodes remembers, "and I used to
smoke a cigarette with each song. And each cigarette was.... so good. And I would listen to
Domo Arigato and I would.... smoke. All I wanted ... was .... another .... cigarette.
Just... to ... smoke... again. Nicotine.... mmmmm. Excuse me, I have to go now."
The following bands have confirmed they will be contributing songs to the album:
- The Heisenburg Principle
Still performing music after 33 years, The Heisenburg Principle has crossed all over the
map of styles, from new wave to grunge to ska, usually two or three years after the style
is no longer popular. The band has experienced a revolving door of members and no word has
been given as to who will be in the band for the song, but it's a safe bet founding member
bass player Bryan Heisenburg and his producing friend, singer and drummer Puggsy Rhodes,
will be on the album.
- Youth Group Counselors
Heisenburg's son, Hezekiah Heisenburg, enjoyed moderate success in his Christian ska
band during the late 90's. Joined again by friends Godz Diva and Gimp Bizquick (who have
all toured live with The Heisenburg Principle), Youth Group Counselors releases a new song
for the first time in three years.
Mythical progressive rock band, Medusa, is currently in the studio recording their new
album, _Fling Da Ring, Bling, Bling_. The band features singer Johann Sebastain Smith and
guitarist Chester Wiggins. In addition to their new album, the band will also cover one of
- Tru 2 U
Fresh off a successful tour of Japan, Korea, and Singapore, singing boy band, Tru 2 U,
understands the influence Domo Arigato had on the musical world.
- Sophie Van Zandt Heisenburg
Sophie made a name for herself in the symphonic world during the 70's as a virtuoso
violinist. She married Bryan Heisenburg and has been contributing to Heisenburg Principle
albums since 1981. Sophie is excited to make her solo debut on this album with a cover of
one of Arigato's songs.
- Ellen's Affection
Having completed his public service, guitar player Chester Wiggins intends to reunite
Ellen's Affection to cover a song. Earwig currently works with Wiggins on the new Medusa
album, so all that's left is to find that guy who plays drums after Atlanta Braves games.
- Jeb McGee and The Finger Pickins'
After having their song "R.U.N.O.F.T." featured in the movie _O Brother Where Art Thou?_,
the phone calls haven't stopped ringing for this bluegrass act. The whole family is packing
into the truck and heading to the "big city" to record a song for the tribute album.
- Master Big Pimpin'
Before joining Medusa, Master Big Pimpin' enjoyed success from several albums released
on So Phat, So Def records in the 90's. Master Big Pimpin' will re-mix one of Arigato's
songs and add new rap vocals.
- Himitsu wo shiri tai
Little is known of this mysterious rave band put together by two DJ's, DJ-D2 and DJ Wheezin'.
- David's Harp
Normally, David's Harp doesn't associate with "the world," but Bryan Heisenburg has convinced
his old friends to add a song to the tribute album. Christian Rock band David's Harp has been
nominated twice for the Dove Award and features former Medusa singer, Silas, and Christian
Rock legend, guitarist Melvin Myers.
Look for the tribute album, _Thank You Very Much, Domo Arigato_, in stores this January!
Hesienburg and Rhodes to form new label
First Release targeted for the end of 2002
Bryan Heisenburg and Puggsy Rhodes, long-time members of the capricious rock band,
The Heisenburg Principle, announce the formation their new label, Good Times! Records.
"We felt it was time to create a space where new bands could have their say and bring their
music to the world." says a bald-headed Bryan Heisenburg. "We think with the creation of our
own label, we'll be able to further the cause of The Heisenburg Principle while introducing new
bands, also. I know there are many young bands that have been influenced by The Heisenburg Principle."
Also, Good Times! Records will be active in cyberspace. "We'll be creating a e-mail list to
contact our fans and give them all the latest important information, tour dates, new albums, and
contests for winning prizes. Look for an e-mail with the subject 'Good Times!' in your e-mail soon!"
There are no current plans for a new Heisenburg Principle album, but Heisenburg and Rhodes will
be busy sitting in the producer's chair. The label's first album is rumored to be a tribute to the
tortured Japanese rave artist, Domo Arigato. Several bands have already been contacted by Heisenburg
to participate on the album and are eager to participate. The album is set to be release to coincide
with the 20-year anniversary of the tragic death of Arigato.
The Heisenburg Principle to perform at Georgia State Curling Championships
Erratic rock band The Heisenburg Principle has mostly been on hiatus since their brief stint
opening for No Doubt, but the band now has a date scheduled in early April. The 30 year old
band will be closing out the activities at the Georgia State Curling Championships at Parkaire
Ice Arena in Marietta, Georgia.
"I really had never heard of curling," says Bryan Heisenburg, bass guitar player and
creative force of the band, "until I saw it on CNBC during the Olympics. Pretty soon I was
staying up until midnight every night."
"It was so addictive.... almost like..... cigarettes.", said singer and drummer Puggsy Rhodes.
"We are excited to be playing at The Georgia State Curling Championships", says Heisenburg,
"I'm looking forward to watching athletes from all around Georgia come together to compete.
Perhaps our concert there will encourage more people to come and learn about this wonderful sport."
The show will be an intimate acoustic concert with Heisenburg playing an acoustic bass
and Rhodes playing an unmiked snare drum while singing.
David's Harp Nominated for Dove Award
Christian Rock group David's Harp has been nominated for a Dove Award for the second time.
Their new album _David's Harp Praise 3!_ has been nominated for the prestigious "Album Most
Pleasing To God" award. The album faces stiff competition against albums by Point of Grace,
Avalon, Michael W. Smith, and Steven Curtis Chapman for the award.
In 1986, the band was nominated for "Most Theologically Accurate" for their song "I Will
Sing of Your Omnipotence" on the album 2 Happy 2 B Sad, but has never won a Dove Award before.
David's Harp features singer Silas, formerly of the band The Heisenburg Principle.
Melvin Myers, who has now released twenty-five solo albums, plays guitar. Zacharius Jones,
Elijah Patterson, and Chung Wang fill out the rest of the band.
The 33rd Annual Dove Awards will be held on April 25th at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville, Tenn.
Medusa Re-unites amid "Lord of the Rings" craze.
Not men to miss out on an opportunity to make a little cash, Chester Wiggins and Johann
Sebastian Smith have re-united Medusa to create mythical progressive rock again. Smith and
Wiggins have wisely realized that many progressive rock fans are also fantasy novel readers,
and what fantasy novel is bigger right now than J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings?
Stumpy Whippensworth, while on a break between tours for The Heisenburg Principle, will
sit in on drums and funk-bassist Earwig will play bass. Moving forward into a completely
new style of progressive rock, the band plans to add hip-hop elements to the sound of the band.
Master Big Pimpin', a rap artist from Compton, California will supply loops and rap vocals.
The lyrics of the first album will mainly revolve around Tolkien's book and blockbuster
movie, Fellowship of The Ring. Not surprisingly, two albums are planned to follow. Many concessions
will have to be made to get the band into the studio together. Smith will not join unless
a PlayStation 2 is installed into the studio console so that he can play "SSX Tricky" during
breaks. Wiggins insists on adding a character to the lyrics featuring a beautiful woman
that falls madly in love with her prince after 12 years of trying to find him. Earwig wants
to play in the nude and Master Big Pimpin' has insisted on front-court seats to Los Angeles
Clippers games. It is yet to be determined if any of these concessions will be made.
The new album, _Fling Da Ring, Bling Bling_, is set to debut in May.
From the Heisenburg Principle Fan Club-
The Heisenburg Principle has returned as promised with the beginning of the year 2000.
Bryan Heisenburg has spent the last half of 1999 writing lyrics about a post Y2K world where
computers are rendered useless and the electricity fails. Heisenburg was slightly disappointed
when nothing happened on January 1, but nevertheless, he plans to keep the theme for the album.
The album's lyrics mainly center around the main character avoiding planes falling from the sky,
failing to get money from non-working ATMs, and hiding in the storm cellar and sitting on a
20-year supply of canned Dinty Moore beef stew armed with a shotgun.
Joining Bryan Heisenburg is a mix of old and new. Longtime drummer, Puggsy Rhodes has
stepped out from behind the drum kit and will be handling vocals for the band. Heisenburg
says, "Well, all those cigarettes that Puggsy smoked during the 80's has made his voice pretty
hoarse and ragged. He almost sounds like our old singer, Silas! So he's a perfect fit to
sing for The Heisenburg Principle. Plus, he's a huge Genesis fan, so this is his big chance
to follow in the footsteps of his idol, Phil Collins."
On the album, percussion will mostly be from a Roland keyboard drum machine, because
Heisenburg saw an article in Keyboard magazine that said, "If you don't use a drum machine
on your album, then you aren't cool." However in concert, former Medusa drummer, Stumpy
Whippensworth, will back up the band. Bryan has no idea where Stumpy has been the last
sixteen years, but one day he was attending an Atlanta Braves baseball game to see if
that guy that plays drums on the street after games was available. Heisenburg mused
"Well, I guess I will need a drummer for the next tour" and sitting a row behind him,
Stumpy answered, "Hey, I'm a drummer!" The rest was history.
The Heisenburg Principle will have a new guitarist to replace Trevor Dare. Dare is
currently working on the newest Jerry Bruckheimer film. The guitarist will be none other
than Bryan's own fifteen year-old son, Hezekiah Heisenburg. Hezekiah has been playing for
two years in his own band, Youth Group Counselors. The Christian ska band has released
two albums Skankin' To the Lord! in 1998 and East Coast Flava', Yo in 1999. Two other
members of Youth Group Counselors will also join The Heisenburg Principal. 16 year-old
Cody "Gimp Bizquick" Jones and 17 year-old Wendi "Godz Diva" Fleischman will join the
band on trumpet and trombone, filling in the roles formerly held by the retired Herman
and Gertrude Wendleweiler. Bryan's wife and Hezekiah's mother, Sophie Van Zandt
Heisenburg will contribute her violin playing to some of the tracks.
The album, Fear the Millennium, is scheduled to be released on 4/4/2000.
Heisenburg Promotes a Cause
Bryan Heisenburg's band may be on hiatus, but the leader and bass player of the
Heisenburg Principle is keeping busy. Bryan, now bald because he shaved his head in
anger four years ago (but the hair wouldn't grow back) is championing a cause he dearly
believes in. Bryan will be attending a Senate Committee meeting to speak on behalf of
the "Save the Metric System!" cause.
"Think of the children." says Heisenburg, "They are growing up in a world that
lives in meters and liters and must suffer by learning miles and ounces. It's just
sad. I hurt for the children."
When asked how people can help Bryan responds, "Boycott english system measurements.
Buy a 2-liter bottle of Coca-Cola instead of a 12 ounce can. Drive 90 kilometers an
hour instead of 60 miles an hour. We can overcome this oppression together."
Heisenburg will be traveling across the country, visiting several universities and
colleges to promote the cause.
From Doves Descending Records for immediate release:
David's Harp reunites to release Praise album
After 12 years, the band David's Harp has returned to the studio to release a
new album that will bless the believers. The new album, David's Harp Praise!, will
feature several popular praise songs in addition to new songs created by the band.
David's Harp is comprised of Silas, Melvin Myers, Zachariaus Jones, Elijah Patterson,
and new member Chung Wang.
- Silas is no newcomer to the CCM industry, having released four albums with David's Harp.
Silas also sang on several albums with The Heisenburg Principle. Silas also played with
the mythical progressive rock group, Medusa, but he has since repented of such acts.
Silas brings a gravelly, warm vocal that will stir your heart to praise the Lord.
- Melvin Myers is also a veteran of the CCM industry. Myers has played on three of the
previous David's Harp albums and has released 19 solo albums and 4 kids albums. Myers'
latest album, Middle Schoolers Can Praise The Lord, Too!, earned a Dove nomination. Myers'
smooth guitar will keep listeners from the temptation of loud, offensive guitars.
- Zachariaus Jones and Elijah Patterson are solid musicians, having played many years
as part of the backing band of the Gaither Vocal Band. Jones, on drums, and Patterson,
on keyboards, have played on all four previous David's Harp albums
- Chung Wang played bass in the 80's band, The Pong Players, but he has since repented
of the evils of playing video games and now wants to play bass for the Lord. This is
his debut in the CCM industry.
David's Harp was founded in 1982 by Silas and Bryan Heisenburg. Heisenburg has since
heard the siren call and "crossed-over" to the secular music scene, but Silas remains
faithful to the Lord! The band released four albums, Marvelous Love!,
God Says It's Okay To Rock!, 4 Given, and 2 Happy 2 B Sad before succumbing to devil's
lies and changing their name back to The Heisenburg Principle. After leaving the narrow road,
Silas has now brought David's Harp back together.
Look for David's Harp Praise! at a Christian Bookstore near you soon!
