Director Biography - Kimba

Currently working on videos for his band "ROADSIDE MEMORIAL"

The creator, artist and director of "Tip-Toe Past the Witch" has a colorful background, working with artists and musicians you may recognize. In his teens, Kimba was glam rock fanatic and was bitten by the performance bug, playing the Mabuhay Gardens and other Broadway clubs before he was allowed to be in a bar.

From 1985 -87, he recorded and toured extensively with SPECIMEN from London's Bat Cave. Specimen was his favorite band. He was 19 years old with the poster on his wall, and in two years, he was in the band playing hits like "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" and "Beauty of Poison."

Jon Klein (the guitarist) went on to play with Siouxsie and the Banshees and Sinead O’ Connor and is an amazing producer.

Kimba is the bass-playing blonde in the pink dress.

In the '90s, Kimba joined Tribal industrial Mayhem troop SHARKBAIT. SHARKBAIT played the entire Lollapalooza tour of 1992, traveling on the same tour bus with the Jim Rose Circus Sideshow. SHARKBAIT produced three CDs and two singles and was the house band at Burning Man three years in a row, 1993-96. After the cacophony and craziness of SHARKBAIT:


He left the big drums, distorted bass, jackhammers, grinders and flaming stage to find his roots again in glam rock. He formed a band with East Bay Ray from the Dead Kennedys called Candyass for two years and has since performed many sit-in gigs and fronted his own band, Poisin Jett Gunz.

In 2006, Kimba performed a reunion show with SPECIMEN, and they were signed that night to do an album for Metropolis Records (Electric Ball Room).


He is credited alongside Jon Klein in writing the opening track, "Death Drive," which is featured in "Tip-Toe Past the Witch". SPECIMEN is currently touring Europe with the original members.
