A Brief History of Scribe
In August of 1991 future lead vocalist/bassist Josh "J Poppas" Needleman rolls into the SF Bay Area looking for band members. Psychefunkapus is playing their last shows and J takes note of Paul "Mushi Moo Moo" Johnson, the engine drumming behind the 90’s alt- rock sensation. Psychefunkapus made 2 albums for Atlantic Records and did extensive US touring including playing San Francisco’s infamous Exotic Erotic Ball and warming up Pearl Jam for the Earth Day festival at the Star Plex in Dallas Texas.
Paul and Josh start playing together and with the help of the magnanomous friend and keyboardist/computer scientist Ben Jacobs, are able to track the bass & drums for four originals songs. The innovative and melodious music derived from this session will set the stage for Scribe. Jor Slick helps Josh finish the demo with various musicians. The demos are given 7 consecutive Monday rotations on WNEWs New Music Hour. Out of a batch of ten new artists presented to him, then RCA A&R man John Brodi, who managed Dave Mathews Band, digs the demo.
1992-2001: Paul & Josh play together on and off and in various situations. J’s inspiring bass talents are utilized in the world fusion group Collage of i. The group does a three evening recording for a live CD at Sweetwater in Mill Valley and plays The Frost Amphitheater at Stanford. For a time J fills in with three members of Psychefunkapus in a group they called Kachunk. Later, the two play many dates with Patch of Blues, Free Association (cool jazz), and the second incarnation of Bullfrog, Josh’s early band experiment for Scribe which toured in Colorado. Paul makes a record and plays locally with alt rockers Pump Mother and makes a record and tours Europe with the storytelling blues outfit Preacher Boy. One of the stops has them on the bill with BB King. For five of these years Paul is also making three funk rock records and doing shows with Ace in their band Skull Funk. Josh does studio and live work with Cat, Willow Ray, Celeste’s Tool Chest, Lucas Arts and Sur Real before taking time to learn classical string bass from SF Symphony bassist Charles Chandler and Gary Karr and to study voice with critically acclaimed Bay Area singer Suzanne Sterling.
2001-2004: Scribe Rocks! After three years of deligent searching and disappointments which led the band to have temporary band members and special guests play on their CD, Scribe announced the arrival of the first official third member, guitarist Alex Korinzer. Alex gels musically and personally. This talented young man had tracked a record with his band The Smokin’ Roscoes at the same studio (Owl Mountain- Inverness, CA) where Scribe tracked the basic tracks for the band’s debut independent release...
The CD is currently available here on-line and in better Bay Area retail stores. Musical guests include mandolin innovator David Grisman, Violinist Katie Johnk, and guitarists Tim O’Connor and Julian Hoover. Kent Matcke engineered and mixed the bulk of the CD. Chris Manning engineered the basic tracks. Mastering Ace Ken Lee of Oakland made it sparkle. Todd D’Amario drew the first Scribe logo and our buddy Louis Katz got the logo web ready and designed the CD layout. Tristan Tom took the photo on the back of the CD. Sean Carney initially helped us with the website and now our buddy Peter Kafin is the web man.
