I will dedicate this album to the passing of time…
“Observe this desert, its ruins,
Its shredded columns, its now empty pavillions.
Once a throne shined within it, and every place issued beauty.
Great kingdoms have lived here and hour or two, but all vanished in nothing“.
(‘Omar Khayyam , “Quartine”)

Born and raised in the outskirts of Bologna (Granarolo), Mr. Drey was, (and it’s a pity when this is not remembered), an enfant prodige of the teen punk scene (with No Hope) and with the ska/reggae/high school rocksteady (Urka, Explanation of Palmas). The notoriety of these bands brought him no lucky occasions nor any good.
