Chicken Babies, Bondage Nights and Severed Monkey Heads

True-life adventures with Richard Johnson, art provocateur

When the punk band onstage is done, some of the kids remain, lounging on the gallery's American flag-striped couches. Johnson holds up an LP and mockingly points at it; it's Charles Manson's 1970 album Lie: The Love & Terror Cult. He puts the needle down, and within two minutes, all of the remaining kids shuffle out of the gallery. Then he changes the music.

"Works every time," Johnson says.

"My favorite part of AAA Electra 99 is right here. This is what I enjoy most about this place. I'm sitting here with my rock & roll, my chandeliers, talking to my buddies with the door closed, and nobody's going to bother me."

AAA ELECTRA 99 CO-OP MUSEUM & GALLERY is located at 2821 E. WHITE STAR AVE., STE. D, ANAHEIM, (714) 666-1805; WWW.AAAELECTRA99.COM.
