This album was born from the combination of 2 factors: another long period of isolation and the purchase of an electric guitar, which I had wanted since teenagehood. It was born naturally in a couple of months, and it is my first attempt into doing something which could resemble composing. I am glad of the result, a strange feeling for me, but I cannot but realize how the things I record end up so different from what I actually listen to, but this may be not that surprising afterall.
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.


Former member of Salomè Lego Playset, Achievements, Rambler 1976, Momo Squad.
