Last week I have written a little about and posted the trailer to the music documentary R.M.H.C., failing to mention that one of the great things about it is the soundtrack, mostly comprising of songs by a broke Italian, a punk with a traveller’s soul, named Gipsy Rufina. His guitar strumming and voice at once soft and ragged could very well remind you of artists such as Rocky Votolato and Chuck Regan, or similarly of other musicians who might have softened with age and, from their past career as tough, political and loud, tipped into the beautifully melodic, keeping some of their punk spirit intact nevertheless. Here’s a snippet of Gipsy’s music: the song Cottage Days, which I’ve fallen in love with over the last week.
My name has five letters in it, and comes up in some Bright Eyes songs. I am (apparently) an artist, with too much time on her hands. Well, enough to blog (almost) daily. I am 1/4 (the smallest one, actually) of Lazy Acre Records; I also write & photograph for a
localmagazine based in Englaaand and makeused to draw musically-inspired comics for a canadian mag (RIP Inscribed). As if that wasn't enough, I book bands for a local experimental music venue called Subterrarium: we rock pretty hard. Sometimes I can be quite cute. I used tostill have a crush on Marty McFly; I like baking, overusing semi-colons, the smell of the sea, and thunderstorms.
I tend to be quite the busy bee, but if you make VERY sexy music and want me to listen and enjoy and possibly even (!!) write about it, shoot me a mail, baby. music(at)alicetragedy(dot)org
