The Liquid Scene

Bay Area native Becki (bodhi) diGregorio played bass in several respected rock trios before embarking on a solo career to focus on her original material. Her first album "seven worthies... of the bamboo grove" features a collection of original songs and a cover of the sixties psychedelic hit "Open My Eyes" by The Nazz. The album became popular in Europe and was picked up for distribution by Jarmusic in Germany. "seven worthies..." garnered excellent reviews from as diverse places as Italy, Brazil, England, and Japan.

diGregorio was also fortunate to have the guitarist from one of her favourite bands add his talents on the album. Dave Gregory of Britain's XTC plays guitar and keyboards on four of the tunes, including "inside the dream" where his mastery of both acoustic and electric guitar drives the song from ethereal beginning to climactic end.

Her second CD, "god's empty chair" (a quote from a Jack Kerouac novel), is edgier and more cohesive. It has sold briskly both in the states and abroad. She once again offers a cover tune, but this one had never before been released. "Susan Revolving" was a 30-second demo written by XTC's Andy Partridge which Becki had managed to hear from a "secret source." She fell in love with the song and its psychedelic possibilities. Andy was keen enough to finish writing the song for her to record, asking only that she "listen to Pink Floyd's first album over and over before going into the studio." Dave Gregory returns to add guitar and keyboard on several tunes. The album also features Lyle Workman (Jellyfish, Frank Black, Beck, Sting) on guitar, keyboards and electric sitar.

Both albums are available on CDBaby.

The Liquid Scene psychedelic project features diGregorio on vocals, acoustic guitars, sitar and dilruba. The band members are:
Tom Ayers (from "Persephonees Bees") on electric guitars and pedals
Endre Tarczy on bass and keyboards
Trey Sabatelli on drums and percussion

bodhi likes to refer to her CD's as "five-inch pieces of plastic of what i hear in my head." We hope you enjoy the music, and thank you for your support of independent musicians everywhere.
