    "Thomas Truax is a feisty dreamer gadgeteer, songwriter and performer...capable of crafting some very potent songs, such as the wistful 'In Barcelonely'...and 'The Butterfly and the Entomologist' on which Truax is joined by cellest Pete Harvey and violinist Meredith Yayanos (both of whom appear on other songs too, along with a few other players) is the perfect blend of his moodily manipulated instrumentation and oblique narratives. It's poetically evocative and rich with melancholy, both by dint of its sounds and the texts..."

lyrics

I must admit I've got this audio addiction

It's a serious affliction it's a life support system

I'd do most anything for the spiritual nutrition

That I find when I am lost inside my compact disk collection

I walk into work with my Walkman hair

A little disheveled and recessed from ear to ear

Might look a little funny but I do not care

With my soundtrack in my head I've got nothing to fear

I've gotta say I woke up blue but now I'm feeling born anew

Suspended in the phrases of a didgeridoo

Finding that song was like falling in love

I floated off the ground and I kissed the sky above

I am a slave To the audio wave

You scammers and you pushers and you street preachers

You snake oil salesmen and similar creatures

Keep in mind you might as well consider me dead

I'm in a world apart with these phones on my head

My audio addiction sends me on a mission

My Walkman and I we're going CD fishing

We're hanging out a lot around these record stores

Hey hey there Mister Virgin have you got a little more of that

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'.
