invisible-movement.net is a non-commercial website about John Frusciante â€“ guitarist, singer, producer and Red Hot Chili Pepper. This site serves to update everyone on what John has been up to professionally, and to collect, preserve and protect information and media related to more than three decades of his work. We are not affiliated with John, his family, friends, record companies or promotional agencies.
The site was named after the song Invisible Movement, track 11 on To Record Only Water For Ten Days. It was launched in November 2004 after eight months of building. Initially, it was a news blog with a rather sub-par collection of live photographs, magazine articles in text form and a couple of audio files of horrible quality. Over the years, it gradually became the Internet’s only significant English-speaking resource on John Frusciante’s music and career. To this very day, I am scared about it.
We have had many contributors over the years, but the site is maintained by a sole person – a web developer and photographer by trade. It takes a lot of time to build, update and maintain something of this size and complexity – code, design, file types – they get obsolete. Resources need to be monitored, themes and plugins kept up to date. Stuff needs to be backed up, checked for errors etc.
There is a somewhat messy list of recent changes.
If you have something to contribute to this site – by all means, go on! The community will be grateful and you will be credited for every single thing you do – from sending us a news link to finding an elusive bootleg. There is also a full page of things that need to be transcribed or typed out, concerts there are no known photos and a lot more.
Keep in mind that you are not writing to John Frusciante. You are not writing to his manager or press representative either. And this paragraph would not be here without a reason – I received many, err, interesting messages over the course of past 17 years.
If you are not that comfortable with English, I am fluent in Italian and a native speaker of Serbian/Croatian/Bosnian/Montenegrin.
Do not contact me with offers to write random articles or link to your unrelated content. That is not what this website is for. We don’t do that here.
