"Simon Sez," the recent Dennis Rodman action movie that suffered a critical drubbing and a shrug from the ticket-buying public, is partly the brainchild of Andrew Lowery, whose nascent career as a Hollywood screenwriter is nevertheless going great guns. As a rocker, the former Fullerton resident helped conceive a masterpiece that, alas, died aborning because of music industry malpractice.

Standard Fruit emerged from the recent "Texas Tuneup" competition at Bogart's as a band worth watching.

No Orange County band has been more ready for prime time than Standard Fruit, whose catchy but muscular pop-rock ranges distinctively between sources as diverse as the Smiths, R.E.M. and the Beach Boys. Prime time is exactly where you'll soon find Andrew Lowery, the band's guitarist and main songwriter. But Lowery is getting there in his paying job as a TV and film actor, not via rock 'n' roll, which he always has pointed to as his favorite artistic calling.
