retired postal worker & struggling songwriter bingo gazingo, is dead.

achieving his greatest fame courtesty of metafilter-favorite wfmu after appearing on one of irwin chusid's songs in the key of z compilations, he gained attention here and there, and was once profiled in the ny times.

a sometimes-collaborator of my robot friend, gazingo was still chasing fame when he was mowed down by a cab on his way to a gig. a regular at the bowery poetry club, someone should tell these folks that bingo is now & forever, out of the computer.

tribute here, videos here. previously

I think I still have the note where I scribbled "you're out of the computerrrrr" after hearing that song on WFMU while driving south on the NJ Turnpike. Man, almost 10 years ago.
