Bleecker St Reality Band
Story and Time Line

It all began in 1992 when David and Kathy were both living in the same building on Bleecker St in the West Village in lower Manhattan. She was reading a biography of Phil Ochs, one of Dylan's contemporaries who lived and died in that block, writing what he felt. She was inspired by the history of the place and even though it seemed that history had passed on there still seemed to be an incredible energy left. People always on the street. Folk singers and african drum jams at midnight, hard rock spilling out from all the clubs, the Bitter End still cranking into the night. Even though Joni and Joan and Judy had left, even though Dylan and Tim Hardin and Jimi and Coltrane were no longer there, Kathy and David were. They started playing together with friends from the neighborhood and throughout the various incarnations of the band, they kept at it. The album UNREAL is the fruition of these years.
