Wavy Gravy, my old boss’ husband.

I worked for Jahanara Romney, this guy’s wife at Grand Central Answering Service in San Francisco from 1976 to 1979. It was a gas. I encountered ol’ Wavy a few times. I played Tuxedomoon’s version of “Night and Day” for him. He said “When I hear this and then the original….it’s like night and day!” A hyuk. I used to see him riding the bus in SF, twanging on a homemade tambura and chanting.

Blaine L. Reininger was born July 10, 1953 in Pueblo, Colorado. Then he lived a life. By and by, he founded Tuxedomoon with Steven Brown in 1977. He traipsed around America, tuxedomooning until 1980, when he began to traipse around Europe. As a direct result of all of this traipsing, many musical compositions were composed, most of which found their way to some sort of mechanical device capable of reproducing musical compositions. This was mostly for the good. He now lives in Athens, Greece, where he is content.

  1. Check out the amazing charity that Wavy Gravy and his wife Jahanara started called Seva Foundation (http://www.seva.org). The organization has helped over 3 million people who were blind to see again! AMAZING! I particularly like Seva’s incredible alternative gifts catalog called GIFTS OF SERVICE. For just $50 you can restore eyesight to someone who is blind as an alternative gift to a friend or loved one. There are dozens of other wonderful gifts too! Check it out at http://www.seva.org/gifts.
