Linar Notes by my Psychiatrist:
I imagine it to be loud and angry - wild and disharmonic - saying a lot without being understood. In fact it’s not supposed to be understood. It’s communication in an incomprehensible language, so its inhabitants can show without being seen. All the while hoping for the few that can understand and see. Hoping to show their treasures, all their treasures that belong to them - and just them. To let them see and be awestruck.
It’s a place for colossal boys, with soft features, wild hair and their mysteries. Sometimes, I look at them and wonder, what their eyes see and their souls translate when we look upon the same affair, and I wonder what they see when they look at me...and sometimes I fear their judgment. They are sensitive, brooding, melancholic, hurt ...and I can just imagine them in their hiding place, removed from the world and its ways. Fullwell knowing their anger is just there to ease the pain.
I don’t know how often they realize their solitude or feel alone, but I can sense their hunger for a person to reach them.
and sometime I think I can hear them calling.
Track by Track Commentary:
Roman Numeral no.1 is a phantasm in three parts 1) Trip to the Batcave - Hula Girl Aloha He, 2) Complete Permutation of G7#9 - Live at the Sands circa 1974, and 3) Toki-Oh-basement-TorSHənanz-at 0.8Hz.
Roman Numeral no.2 is a dance of intrigue and seduction at the Blue Dolphine Room in 1983 AD. A navigation through slow melodic lines and broken triads to the relentless twanging of Telecasesters and sustained fermatas at the foggy shores of friction. And finally, the awakening of Cubenga: the volcano god - witness his hideous roar of slow island hell and millenial romance in 1999.
Roman Numeral no.3 is a organum spirituale that chronicles the migration form the city to the corn in 19-Oh-1. The landscape as streaks - Heavy eyelid accident - Kissing Abigail at the garden gate - Everything-Must-Go!-decay - Alone together to bite the dust.
