A Sud-Ovest di Sonora


A Sud-Ovest di Sonora

Cavalcata di un'ora dedicata all'archeologia del country in tutte le sue tonalità, da sud a ovest, saltando avanti e indietro nel tempo, cercando di destreggiarsi tra i fittoni della musica americana per eccellenza.

w/ boris nietzsche

Perennemente assente, mai presente. Nella vita quotidiana si occupa di motion graphics e videografia, saltuariamente si trova su un set cinematografico. Nato a Pisa, ne appoggia in pieno la filosofia ghibellina e anticlericale. Cresciuto e vivente a Pistoia, ancora non si spiega l'alta densità di chiese della stessa.

Episodio 35: Stan Ridgway (and his wall of voodoo)

L'orizzonte trema: una fata morgana lo assilla, ritmata da una drum machine inaudita in quegli spazi. Il deserto è reale, il deserto è post-punk per partito preso. Un oratore plasma nell'aria storie nere, di guerra, di frontiera, pregne di fumo e squarci di luce storti. Un film invisibile, tedesco o americano d'anteguerra, o una ballata di bovari. Il sole si oscura, cala il buio, giunge la mezzanotte. Le campane sono state distrutte. Squilla solo il richiamo di un serpente a sonagli. Vibrano le false corde. Qualcuno ha impalato delle teste di bambola su dei paletti marci. L'espressione prima di tutto, poi le immagini. Contiene vitalismo.
