about

Things always happen for a purpose. Talking about Valencia City something without precedent in the music scene of the town happened. Twelve of the best bands and music outfits gathered together in Loco Club to organize and orchestrate a tribute to Lou Reed to celebrate his passing to a better neighbourhood. Lou Reed died and unity, cooperation and a torrent of creativity took place by itself, well with the superb effort of Mariano (La Colina 45) La Gramola de Keith, Lorenzo and his team at Loco Club and all the musicians (over 40!) who made this event possible.

So far an excelent documentary has been produced with the participation of the bands and music and press personalities like Juan Vitoria (Amsterdam Records) and Remi Carreres (Glamour, Comite Cisne) among many others, you can enjoy it here...

So, ourselves? We have decided to record in our home studio the two songs that we performed live in Loco Club´s stage with the same instruments, just acoustic guitar, a dobro played with slide in Open A and the quiet heartbeat of a maracca...

We want to dedicate this work to Lou Reed for his inspiration and eternal legacy to the history of music, poetry and low life. And to all the young and old Punks, scum of society, kings and queens of the bars and street hustlers. With grace and peace.

Track Name: Nobody But You
I really care a lot
although I look like I do not
Since I was shot
there's nobody but you
I know I look blase (* accented on "e")
party Andy's what the papers say
At dinner I'm the one who pays
for a nobody like you
Nobody but you, a nobody like you
Since I got shot, there's nobody but you
Won't you decorate my house
I'll sit there quiet as a mouse
You know me I like to look a lot
at nobody like you
I'll hold your hand and slap my face
I'll tickle you to your disgrace
Won't you put me in my proper place
a nobody like you
Sundays I pray a lot
I'd like to wind you up and paint your clock
I want to be what I am not
for a nobody like you
The bullet split my spleen and lung
the doctors said I was gone
Inside I've got some shattered bone
for nobody but you
Nobody but you, a nobody like you
Shattered bone, for nobody but you
I'm still not sure I didn't die
and if I'm dreaming I still have bad pains inside
I know I'll never be a bride
to nobody like you
I wish I had a stronger chin
my skin was good, my nose was thin
This is no movie I'd ask to be in
with a nobody like you
Nobody like you, a nobody like you
All my life
It's been nobodies like you
Track Name: Pale Blue Eyes
Sometimes I feel so happy,
Sometimes I feel so sad.
Sometimes I feel so happy,
But mostly you just make me mad.
Baby, you just make me mad.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.

Thought of you as my mountain top,
Thought of you as my peak.
Thought of you as everything,
I've had but couldn't keep.
I've had but couldn't keep.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.

If I could make the world as pure and strange as what I see,
I'd put you in the mirror,
I put in front of me.
I put in front of me.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.

Skip a life completely.
Stuff it in a cup.
She said, Money is like us in time,
It lies, but can't stand up.
Down for you is up."
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.

It was good what we did yesterday.
And I'd do it once again.
The fact that you are married,
Only proves, you're my best friend.
But it's truly, truly a sin.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.
Linger on, your pale blue eyes.
