沙漠搖滾三連發

最近真是忙歪了

偶然的又開始聽起Calexico

不用功的我完全不知道他們兩人與Gaint Sand還有Howe Gelb的關係
除了Giant sand我沒有聽過以外
其他都是我很愛的。

根據AMG聖經的指示
Joey Burns 跟 John Convertino應該是在giant sand時期認識的
燒焦兄大學的時候修古典音樂,約翰是進了giant sand開始走跳生涯,後來還一起加入Friends of Dean Martinez 陸續的跟了這些我也很愛的藝人合作 Barbara Manning, Vic Chesnutt等。
1996年在家裡錄音搞了第一張專輯
後來才輾轉被quaterstick簽下來
我的第一張專輯應該是the black light (同名歌曲MV請點我)

Giant Sandworms (Howe Gelb) - Body Of Water - 1983

連仙人掌也入鏡了


Giant Sand (Howe Gelb) - Shiver - 2001

Howe Gelb好帥! 我真想留這種鬍子!

Calexico - Crystal Frontier

據說這首歌是來自Carlos Fuentes的小說。

Live
也不錯看


The Crystal Frontier Lyrics
by Calexico


Marco's shadow falls on the door
to the 7 Lost Cities of Gold
finds a raven's head and rattler's tail
dead in his tracks, this Godforsaken soul's
unwanted here and his ghost lingers for years

Amalia's face hides behind the mask
sweating on the TV factory line
that smile on her face is starting to crack
while welding back the pieces of shattered heart
that's scattered out here, with the ghosts of her peers
searched for her lost child along the river of tears

At the end of the working week
when drunken worlds meet
both sides keeping a close eye
for a break in the line here... on the Crystal Frontier

Blood spills out on the streets
and bodies are missing for weeks
both sides keeping a close eye
watching the bullets fly here... on the Crystal Frontier

Ramon tightens up his leather belt
and slips through a hole in the fence
he can get you anything you want
might cost you a life, might cost you
the whole price of freedom here...on the Crystal Frontier

  1. 果然是沙漠裡的搖滾曲, 三首都讓人感受到延炙乾渴的熱氣.

    第二首曲子的Howe Gelb, 不僅人帥(真帥!), 歌也棒翻了. ^^
