“Damn the rotator cuff, full speed ahead” was a bit premature, it turns out.
Igor guitarist B. O’Malley went under the knife (and some tasty anesthesia) for arthroscopic shoulder surgery April 30.
This after a February 2012 hurling of a cinder block that tore O’Malley’s right shoulder cartilage (“labrum,” which sounds eerily like “labia”) in the front and back.
Minimum 4 weeks in a sling, followed by 4-7 months of physical therapy.
Hopefully somewhere in there, Igor will have her guitarist back.
Meanwhile, the rest of the band doesn’t notice the guitar’s absence, and keeps playing an extraordinarily anemic version of “Blood Whore.”
Brian has decided to stop crying about his sore arm and get back to rocking.
Here’s a little sample of what we’re cooking up. It’s not a new recipe, but it’s still pretty tasty.
Expect more treats coming your way in 2013.
Unless Brian has to get rotator cuff surgery.
Then you’ll get nothing and like it!

Thanks to everybody that came out and rocked with us at SLO BREW and the Key Club. Our shows with the Adicts and Brothers of Brazil were great and we had a blast! Look for us next in Las Vegas at the Double Down SEPT 15. All you Vegas rockers are in for it!
IGOR SPECTRE IS OPENING YET AGAIN FOR LEGENDARY PUNK ACT, THE ADICTS
promoting their new album, All The Young Droogs
And Igor’s new album, Steak, Seafood, Salad, Satan!
SUN SEP 9 SLO BREW IN SAN LUIS OBISPO – ALL AGES TIX/INFO
SUN SEP 10 KEY CLUB IN W Hollywood CA – 18+ TIX/INFO
The DOLL HUT, a famous, legendary punk rock venue.
(But don’t worry, grandma. The term “PUNK ROCK” in 2012 connotes just about the same amount of controversy and rebellion as the term “REO SPEEDWAGON” did in 1979.)
Thursday August 30 11pm. Map
Probably $5. Maybe free.
(Sidebar: We’ve been doing this 12 years now, going on 13. If you haven’t learned that the cover charge ranges from $0 – $15 by now, you’re not gonna learn, which makes you a goddamn eggplant.)
I take that back. Eggplants have personality.
ALSO, if you can’t make this show, we’re playing with THE ADICTS in San Luis Obispo SEP 9 and in Hollywood SEP 10, and then hit LAS VEGAS on the 14th.
And now, a word from our new Agent, Uncle Sid:
HEY EVERYBODY IT’S YOUR OLE PAL UNCLE SID JEWISON, MANAGER AND AGENT TO THE STARS, BUT ALSO TO IGOR SPECKER. THESE BOYS HAVE COME A LONG WAY SINCE I MET THEM A FEW WEEKS AGO. THEY REMIND ME OF A TIME WHEN I WAS 40, AND STILL FAILING TO CRACK THE ROCK AND ROLL CIRCUIT, SO I GOT INTO BULL BREEDING. I SOLD SEVERAL HUNDRED “STRAWS” OF BULL SEMEN TO TOP BREEDERS ACROSS THE COUNTRY BEFORE I REALIZED I WAS ON PCP. I CHECKED INTO A CLINIC AND HAD MY COWBOY HAT SURGICALLY REMOVED, BUT THE POINT OF THE STORY IS, I ENDED UP SEEING A LITTLE BAND OUT OF BOSTON, CALLED, WELL, BOSTON, BACK IN 1976. THEY WERE JUST A LITTLE BAND OUT OF BOSTON. ON THE ROAD TRYING TO MAKE ENDS MEET. PLAYING ALL THE BARS AND SLEEPING IN THEIR CARS, AND GET THIS, THEY’D PRACTICE RIGHT ON OUT IN THE STREET. THAT BAND INSPIRED ME TO LOSE 400 POUNDS, QUIT SMELLING COCAINE (TEMPORARILY) AND LOOK FOR A BAND TO SIGN JUST LIKE ROBERT JAMES AND BRAXUS BAND AND THE REST OF THESE BOYS IN THIS BAND, AFRO SPECTRUM. COME ON OUT AND SEE THEM. I’LL BE IN MY CAR SMOKING HOOKAH WITH CHARLES NELSON REILLY’S EX-BODYGUARD, MAXWELL HOUSE (YES THAT’S HIS REAL NAME.) AND YES, HE SMELLS LIKE COFFEE. BUT SO DOES AFRO SPECTRUM, SO GO SEE THEM. IF YOU SEE A RED PORSCHE DRIVING AROUND LA WITH AN AQUARIUM IN IT, THAT’S ME BABY, UNCLE SID
