Merz – "Bustos" (IEP) 1985

Merz brings us the sound of a close miked body,the claustrophobic sounds of a heartbeat and blood flowing through narrowing arteries. The title track on side one, is basically the flesh jail that we are all incarcerated in solitary confinement for a life sentence; we protest our innocence but no-one is listening,because there is no-one there to hear our screams.
“Fe y Sol” is the loneliness of life fading away from isolation,only then do the cold cell walls rot to release the prisoner.
OK, so I'm feeling a tad negative today......its not as bad as all that......well in fact it is;so just get on with it because its all we've got and this is how it is, because it IS! The best advice I can give is 'Don't waste your life looking for answers because there isn't any'. The closest anyone's gonna get is on this cassette(one among thousands of others).
