Greek TV Documentary about Blaine L. Reininger

This documentary was aired in 2009 on Greek television on the venerable Greek documentary series “Paraskinio”. Titled “Blaine L. Reininger an American Friend” it was directed by my friend George Skevas, whom I met while filming with Nicholas Triandafyllidis in 1994.

I relate my story, Tuxedomoon’s story, and other stories that swim by my mind’s eye and I even polish my violin. There is a lot of Tuxedomoon concert footage and clips from other documentaries about us, including Steven Brown’s DVD from his video “The Super 8 Years” and clips from my Greek movie work.

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. Thank you for this! I will always be a sucker for those old Tuxedomoon-records – and it’s great to see how they came about.
