    "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

When you get down to fantasize

What kind of imagery hits your mind's eyes?

Is she blonde or brunette, is he black, bronze or white

Does he bathe in the sun, does she rise with the night?

Does he fuck like a lion or is he gentle and light

Perhaps it takes both to make you feel just right?

Gentleman, animal, powerful or mild

Do you lie there in his arms or do you both go wild?

Has she long hair or short, curly or straight ?

Is she bound for Badda Bing or is she stately and sweet?

Does she straddle your saddle and ride you like cattle?

While you boil her kettle by shaking her rattle?

Does she strip as she stands, does she slap your hands?

Does she come like she came from some exotic land?

Is he bald, is he bound, is he boldly big boned?

When you make him feel good don't he look like he's stoned?

Is he rough 'round the edges or clean as a whistle?

Does he blow like the bomb or does he cruise like the missile?

Has she got big bouncing boobs like balloons?

Built to burst from her blouse as you blow your bassoon?

Or perhaps you prefer the petite little breasts?

Shapely and warm and firm when caressed?

He brings you flowers and you talk for hours

There's foreplay to foreplay, there's hot and cold showers

Then in walks her mother, your fantasy's blown...

Or maybe it's only just begun?

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'.
