part 335.1 of a novel: purple onion soup
purple onion fruit- This is also the name of a band that became Ok Computer. Ok Computer is a band that plays radiohead songs on a karaoke machine, but instead of singing radiohead songs they read passages from Robert Heinlein. The passages are done to the rhythm of the music. It’s worth seeing a couple times. I saw them when they read the entire Sending Giraffes to the Inter-Galactic Night at the Bowling Alley in Elephant Suits. As purple onion fruit they mostly played Green Day and Ozzy covers. Their performance of “Mama, I’m coming home,” at the middle school talent show won them an honorable mention ribbon.
