about

This single is a first taste of the results of fertile and inspired recording sessions in Germany between enigmatic troubadour/inventor Thomas Truax and Brian Viglione of The Dresden Dolls (and currently of the Violent Femmes).
Thomas, who usually performs solo with his invented instruments and mechanical 'bandmates', first supported the Dresden Dolls at an early album release show in Boston then on tour throughout Europe in 2006. Though he and Brian have remained friends since, this is the first project they recorded together.

lyrics

FEELIN' BAD FOR DRACULA

I'm feelin' bad for you Dracula
Those Twilight kids ain't got your style, come on now
Mina, you know what I mean
And Lucy, so deliriously keen…

But I feel bad for you Dracula
Eternal life ain't what it used to be
They're pissin' on your mystery
Eternal life ain't what it used to be

In the shadows I can see you're looking on
Your fiery eyes will burn until the dawn
But in the long run that fresh meat
Will be forgotten
And he will rise again
The prince of vampires will rise once again

about

Thomas Truax London, UK

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
