"3rd season installment from Mr. Pan[k]sament - Bucharest burning gave way to chase, gives way to faking.
when's fake music not a fake? maybe when it is, a fake of fake music !
a fake of a fake tree could be a tree." ( 626.plug-u. net - 626.plug-u.net/media/325/Mr._Pan%5Bk%5Dsament_-_Faking_The_%5BXmas%5D_Tree/
The third and probably the darkest (heaviest) album from this actually busy year, but also - I modestly think - this is the most colorful one as well. And also probably the last album for this year too.
Working with 5 guitar players and 1 bass player, using 3 other voices as well brings me back somehow to the good old days jamming in Ernst's basement with my first band Pansament.
From straight, simple (Post) Metal tunes as "(Bang Your Head) Otis" to pure madness action singing, improvisations and Punk Jazz of "(Car Bombs for) Carlos" or turning from Industrial Rock experiments of "Lilith (Sister Disaster)" to the Alternative Jazz Rock tunes of "Wanda's Wedding (Wanderings"), this record has everything. It's a journey and just like any trip it has his own life and story, different moments and moods.
It's Christmas time and I sadly consisted once again that we forget the Spirit and we worship the New "God" reducing everything to... shopping.
Fake trees... fake smiles. The Mona Lisa symptom. I take the title inspired - mentally - by Peter Gabriel's song "Shaking the Tree", but having in mind also one Marilyn Manson line as well: "fake as the wedding cake".
We get used with all the fake things around us and in our lives and souls from the fake orgasms of the women to the fake comfort of our daily job, from the fake smiles of the politicians to the fake smile of our own as we confront with ourselves in the mirror in the morning as we brush our teeth.
Not accidentally I choose 21 of December as releasing date, 21 years ago we had our own small fake revolution. Televised...
