After two acclaimed albums for the wonderful Swiss label Voodoo Rhythm Records, and several successful tours ep five Turin churn out a concept album, as it was used once, or make too many heavy metal bands. The story of “Son of the Dust” revolves around three characters: a ostraniero, a priest and a peasant. The farmer is the son of the dry powder in a wild west imagery, in a village which is undergoing a tremendous drought. In codesto village comes a stranger who says that the only way to end the drought is to throw the gold statue of the saint of Cold Stone Road in the well, to propitiate the water. The clever stranger takes apart a farmer and told him he could be the one chosen to make the sacrifice. Obviously the farmer contrati despite the opinions of the priest and his wife does the infamous gesture. He escapes and is desperate for the incident, the rain will come and kill the farmer’s wife, who will remain alone and defeated. The Movie Star Junkies told with music and poignant story of a damned dirty lives defeat, despair and loneliness. The music is beautiful, though less sharp-edged discs of the past, a rock in the style of Tom Waits and Nick Cave, sound harsh and very vital, as only the Movie Star Junkies can do. I imagine them playing in the saloon of bad lives, where they meet all the outcasts to hear something that they can redeem. The disc was recorded live in an old barn in the Cuneo area, only to be mixed at ‘Outside Inside Studio by Emanuele Barter with the help of Massimiliano Moccia.
