Baby´s insane

Actualizado: ago 26

Arms covered in blood, the war has begun Hide the straight razor cos baby's insane New telephone number, new lock on the door Hide all the knives cos baby's insane baby's insane, baby's insane baby's on a trip to the moon again baby's insane, baby's insane hide all the knives cos baby's insane The roaches are flying while she sleeps at night Scream over her bed "help us find some light" It stinks of Velveta, one is under her tongue Dreaming of you with her hand on her gun She runs down your birthday till the cats on the lawn All bare their claws at the sound of your name Don't knock on her window, don't knock on her door She's rigged up your welcome one inch off the floor She's picked your white roses from the funeral page There's a whole lot of cities where a good man can age I know that she loves you but it's time to move on Don't miss the bus cos baby's insane

She qualifies the term "invention" for her vocal style, paying tribute to the influence of singers who include Paddy Waters, Anette Peacock, and Carmen McCray

She is just as happy ranting wildly about a "very camp" and trashy book called the Divine Feud, about the rivalry between Bette Davis and Joan Crawford.


Siendo el único soporte de instrumentación narrativo, toda esa gama de voces angustiosas e inhumanas tocadas por el invisible halo de la demencia y un piano que recurre a la oscurantista experimentación de música de vanguardia para ofrecer ese desalentador ambiente fúnebre (que reflejan la casi totalidad de sus creaciones) ligado además con acercamientos al blues Americano de músicos como Boise Studevant y Blind Lemon Jefferson junto a las sagradas espirituales de Deep South. Una obra de proporciones aterradoras que vuelve a recalcar la relación OBSESIVA de amor-odio que la artista mantiene con la Religión

Algo mas esperanzador es el otro trabajo publicado durante finales del mismo año la serpenta canta (Mute 03) donde se deja llevar ....interpretando algunas versiones de gospel, blues, r & b, motown, soul, que ella tanto ama de artistas como Screamin Jay Hawkins, Ornette Cileman, James Carr , Hank Willians, Willie Dixon... para aportar algo de luz a las tinieblas de un corazón permanentemente dañado?
