“Time & Space” Show by Parousia at Plant 6, 11.16.1985

Nobody could ever accuse Parousia of being boring! Here is a song and several live performance videos from the Time and Space show November 16, 1985.

Parousia’s “Time & Space” show came shortly after our recording of the song ‘Place your Bets’ at Select Sound studios in Kenmore, NY.   It was a concert performance which emphasized a new facet of our Kuberick and Owellian influences, melding together to create a visually stimulating show we entitled ‘TIME AND SPACE”.

Robert (Stuart) Lowden’s art work was a heavy presence throughout the stage including life size sculptures, backdrops and paintings.  Scattered along the front of the stage, televisions cast an eerie glow on the audience.

This was another gig that was engineered by our good friend Randy Filippone who supplied the P.A. and videotaped our performance.  We have some audio from that show featuring two of our classic original art rock songs, “Overture #1” and “Modern Woman”.

Patt gives us a big grin. Is that a genuine Seinfeld “puffy shirt” he’s wearing?

Holy 80s, quite the dynamic duo.

    Our two sponsors in support of the Time & Space show were Starseed Enterprise and Zon Guitars. Garth worked at Starseed, but how did we attract the attention of Joe Zon?? It was Nicole Ashley who helped land the support of this vendor. Zon Guitars is a manufacturer of bass guitars founded in 1981 by Joseph Zon. Nicole met Joe during the ‘Ms. Heavy Metal’ competition held at Sinbad’s on Young’s Road near the airport. After Nicole won the competition, she was approached by Joe to model a new bass guitar he was working on. Nicole agreed and they arranged a photo shoot.

    [Regarding the song “Tiffany”] Just to say…. Pat and I wrote this and it wasn’t at all improvised. The “rant” was a prewritten rap /comment on power in the middle east during the early 80’s. I wrote the lyrics and the chords. I think that Pat wrote some of the melody. The song was actually about some imaginary girl. It also had something to do with Patty Booth.
