Electronica artist Earl Zinger is actually none other than Rob Gallagher, who formerly led the Talkin' Loud label's acid jazz band Galliano. Zinger owns a well-crafted and impressive resumé. Unfortunately, it is highly fictional. It boasts of his associations with Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William S. Burroughs, and other luminaries, while touting his influence over such musical artists as Bob Marley and Bob Dylan. Put Your Phazers on Stun and Throw Your Health Food Skyward, issued by K/7 in 2002, marked the fictional Zinger's debut. Gallagher, in his guise as Zinger, clearly has a sense of humor, which shows in everything from Zinger's songs to the interviews he refuses to conduct but which are given through a third party who supposedly knows him. ~ Linda Seida
