"Holes in your life holes in your head holes you can''t fill at all/ sacred monsters rule the air/ the face of monsters behind cool masks"
--Headless Body Found in Topless Bar
"This is a collection of songs that thoroughly mix public and private concerns; love, loss, oppression and the phantom of liberty... modern times and the skin of your teeth. It is also a ROCK and ROLL record and should be played LOUD. I want to thank all the great musicians who contributed to this project. Long may they wave. Happy listenings--like the man said, I''ve suffered for my art, now it''s your turn."
--Robert James Fuller 2004
HEADLESS IN SEATTLE
Where do your dreams end and you begin?/feathers and face paint beneath the white coats/ model my inventions/ tell your hardluck stories while you cook my soup
"Shrouded in the mists of myth and legend, Mr. Fuller, has reemerged onto the scene ready to rattle the walls, tell truth to power, and steal your heart away.
Mr. Fuller, in the guise of the Mississippi bluesman Blind Lemon Rockefeller, once fronted a band called The Lotus Eaters, spreading American values to the huts and villages of many Third World countries before his mysterious disappearance nine years ago. Now, out from under the auspices of the witness protection program and at last free to play under his own name, he is presented to you: The Voice in the Wilderness.
Mr. Fuller has recorded the rock and roll milestone, HEADLESS BODY FOUND IN TOPLESS BAR featuring ''Rip Up'' ("you rip up my heart/ you rip off my head/ mmmmm feels good"); the surreally sad ballad ''Breakfast is Ruined''("Here I sit in the corpse of my youth/ a suitcase of fish and no memories of the future"); and the monumental ''Lunatic Moon'' ("I die a thousand times naked and blind/the heart''s a deep pit of blood and war"-- and that''s just the opening line.)
Mr. Fuller is recording a follow-up album and will also be featured on the soundtrack for the independent film "Iris In", in which he also acts.
Mr. Fuller currently lives in a secluded location near Seattle, WA, reached only by parachute. Like Joel McCrae in ''Ride the High Country'' he just wants to enter his house justified."
