Guitar based melodic rock is mixed primarily with folk, as well as occasional touches of blues and jazz, then lyrically spiked with just enough sarcasm and humor to sharpen the edge. Influence is drawn from a long list of artists, including The Beatles, The Stones, The Faces, The Band, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, Nick Drake, Joni Mitchell, Richard Thompson, Steely Dan, Elvis Costello, The Eels and Radiohead. Regardless of the influence, the final product is always uniquely idiosyncratic.

"Give me your hungry, your tired, your poor, I'll piss on 'em
That's what the Statue of Bigotry says
Your poor huddled masses, let's club 'em to death
And get it over with and just dump 'em on the boulevard"

Lou Reed, "Dirty Boulevard"

The difference, of course, is that Lou was talking about growing up poor in the city, being abused and the limited options available. Now it's government policy. It doesn't have to be this way.

"Blackheart The Pirate"

Blackheart the pirate spoke with a lisp
Curiously lost when uttering the truth
Alas, a youthful inheritance could not cure his impediment
Still he rose to the top when scribes forbade mention of it

Blackheart's father was really a "mother"
Who passed on his ideology of hatred
Naked ambition combined with a narcissist's perception
Altered reality for the sake of some "yes men"

Eyes could see but the image was warped
Ears could hear but the sound was cut short
Lips moved to speak and the lisp was ignored
His touch insincere and his mistresses love bought

Liars are not born, they evolve by natural selection
Positive reinforcement through successful elections
Negative consequences of honest reflection
Sycophants who attach with the promise of protection

If the measure of man is a life filled with self-pleasure
It's easy to envy his bounty of treasure
But the truth, now forbidden, will not always remain hidden
The blame for this cretin lies deep in our own skin

A. C. Monteleone
May, 2018
