The Mauro Tapes 1. Crickets, not at the Crossroads (Willin’ Cover)

Jack O’Malley, featuring Mauro Tirannosauro on ultrasonic backing vocals, in a back-facing cover of Willin’ by Little Feat, looking South.

Making sense of the reference to crickets implies either a deep knowledge of places around Tatti, Southern Tuscany, where this video was shot, o sending a mail to micalosapevo@pibinko.org to inquire.

I been warped by the rain
Driven by the snow
I’m drunk and dirty, don’t you know
And I’m still… willin’

And I was out on the road late at night
I seen my pretty Alice in every headlight
Alice, Dallas Alice

I’ve been from Tucson to Tucumcari
Tehachapi to Tonapah
Driven every kind of rig that’s ever been made
Driven the back roads
So I wouldn’t get weighed
And if you give me weed, whites, and wine
And you show me a sign
I’ll be willin’… to be movin’

Well, I’ve been kicked by the wind
Robbed by the sleet
Had my head stoved in
But I’m still on my feet
And I’m still… willin’

I smuggled some smokes
And folks from Mexico
Baked by the sun
Every time I go to Mexico
And I’m still…

And I been from Tucson to Tucumcari
Tehachapi to Tonapah
Driven every kind of rig that’s ever been made
Driven the back roads
So I wouldn’t get weighed
And if you give me weed, whites, and wine
And you show me a sign
I’ll be willin’… to be movin’

Seeing the Milky Way by Day (Mauro Tirannosauro feat. Liliana Cafiero)

With the unexpected success of Mauro Tirannosauro‘s debut in the Jug Band Colline Metallifere and his track about Participatory Lithology, the cousins from BuioMetria did not waste their time. They called up Mauro in the middle of the night, and worked on more geolyrics.

Inspired by a relatively famous ballad by a relatively famous Irish band, the song follows the story of this project started in 2008 in the Farma Valley, Southern Tuscany, for the protection and promotion of night sky quality, and leaves us with some outlook. Mauro T. ‘s duet with Liliana Cafiero (starring in the geojazz tune on Participatory Lithology, issued a few days ago) opens the floor to more collaborations among the entertainers active on this project, and potential new entries in the story.

Mauro the T-Rex: I have some Rocks (Participatory Lithology Demo Take 4)

All of the Big Kahunas in the music production business were hearing about this for some time: a collaboration between the Jug Band Colline Metallifere, the geomusic guys, and Mauro the T-Rex. First they heard about a potential joint tour in Japan. Then, that mishap with Pellegro, the tenor sax with the Jerry Brecker quartet..so, for one reason or another, the affair was not going anywhere.

Then came Participatory Lithology. This story turned out to provide the right setting. Inspired by a famous American duo from the Sixties, Simone Sandrucci, lead guitar with the JBCM, and Mauro, take some lyrics by Jack O’Malley on the story of this little resilience project, and end the tune with an invitation for all their audience. The video is subtitled in English (not all may understand the T-Rex accent) and in Italian. If you like it, please consider putting something in our digital busking hat.

[Technical note: to get to a perfect syncing of the tracks used in this video with pibinko’s netbook is almost impossible in less-than-geologic time. Please enjoy this demo take in the meantime, and we will see if we can provide a proper edit once we can have more suitable hardware. Or, if you would like to help out on a second edit, please write].
