Der Alte, 1987,Tromsø, Norway.

A memorable show north of the Arctic circle in Norway.

From a memorable solo show north of the Arctic circle in Norway. The only way to get there was by plane, boat or train. There was no road. The batteries in our devices got too cold to function. We were there the day that the sun came out for 15 minutes. The sky got gray. Everyone celebrated. We ate a freshly caught salmon backstage and got plastered from everyone’s secret stash of booze.

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.
