I was looking at the cover art of this CD, and i just wondered if the thinny shadow painted on it, who eyes me behind a bottle, is a portrait of William Burroughs or not.. even because atmospheres on this tracks remind me of some musical excurses He had in past, - and french [1] Kilo of Black Bondage have that morbid charm of story-tellers, a poetical underground spoken word style, enriched with a carpet of sounds, swinging between dirty hip-hop (Murder CBP), techno (Moglobis), jazz-ish moods (Earth multi hop whistlers), and ambient-rock dear to some Godspeed You! Black Empereor (- the use of some voices, like coming out from an airplanes black-box or a old tv). - Is this the perfect sound-track for an ideal beat-generation romance?, - actually, the last track, Too Broken, uses some text of Charles Bukowski (ok, i know He's at borderlines of what BeatGeneration is), and while You are listening these melodies, You feel like You should light a cigarette, or hide the head with hands.. desperation is behind the corner, so beware of windows.. they might tempt You..

 Stavo dando un'occhiata alla cover art di questo CD, e mi stavo giusto chiedendo se l'ombra magra rappresentataci sopra, che mi spia da dietro il vetro di una bottiglia vuota, sia o no un ritratto di William Burroughs.. anche perchè le atmosfere su queste tracce mi ricordano alcuni Suoi excursus musicali.. e i francesi [1] Kilo of Black Bondage hanno quel nonsoche di charm macabro da raccontastorie, un poetico spoken-word underground, arricchito da un tappeto di suoni che fa altalena tra l'hip hop sporco (Murder CBP), la techno (Moglobis), umori +ttosto jazzati (Earth multi hop whistlers), e l'ambient rock caro a certi Godspeed You! Black Empereor (- come anche l'uso di alcune voci, che sembrano prese da scatole nere di aereoplani o vecchie tv). - E' forse una perfetta colonna sonora per un ideale romanzo beat-generation? - a ciò si aggiunga poi che l'ultima traccia, Too Broken, usa dei testi di Charles Bukowski (ok, lo so che Bukowski è appena ai confini di quello che la BeatGeneration vuole), e mentre ascolti queste melodie, Ti senti come se dovessi accenderTi una sigaretta, o nascondere la testa tra le mani.. la disperazione è dietro l'angolo.. quindi attenzione alle finestre, potrebbero tentarVi..
