Welcome to my... rock opera?

Play it: Songs in the rock opera Speeding Motorcycle
Play it: Daniel Johnston Welcome to My World

Infernal Bridegroom Productions (Houston, TX) is premiering a rock opera using the songs of Daniel Johnston, entitled Speeding Motorcycle. Songs featured include the title song, "Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Your Grievances," "Rock N Roll EGA," "Mind Contorted," "True Love Will Find You in the End," and the previously unrecorded, unreleased Johnston song "Loving Feelings." (Playlist features all but unreleased song, PLAY IT)

This comes fresh on the heels of a documentary (The Devil and Daniel Johnston) and a recent compilation (Welcome to My World.) Johnston hasn't seen this much publicity since Kurt Cobain sported one of his t-shirts in publicity photos back in '93.
