Long Live Rock (Opera)!

Burnt Church, the Opera - When I was a kid some of my greatest literary influences were "Quadrophenia", "The Wall", "Tommy", and "Jesus Christ Superstar". And did I mention "Quadrophenia"? Jeff Parker and Paul Roessler have put online their entire Floyd-esque concept album "Burnt Church" (complete with groovy Flash bits) and they are encouraging people to download for free. Check it!

This is not the Chicago guitarist Jeff Parker.

Paul Roessler was in the Screamers (who were the best of the LA punk bands in the 1977-1980) era, and later on with 45 Grave, Twisted Roots, Nina Hagen Mike Watt, etc.

PS: looks like you can listen to excerpts of the songs in the "gallery" section...along with flash/photoshop illustrations for each.

There's also a screenplay (?)

Kind of an on-line multimedia extravaganza.

Oh, and that is indeed the same Paul Roessler of Screamers/Nina Hagen fame

Track 1 is guessable. Hope this works:
