about

The Blind Engineer is not like any musician you have encountered before. His songs will ride you like an “out of time” rusting train car. And what if you met your forsaken conscience in this wood stove that is America? Would you even try to make amends or would you simply run the other way? There are no answers in these songs and messages are just some new junk The Blind Engineer refuses to deal in. His music is beautiful, all naked and transfigured underneath the underpass. And it’s a hell of a way to go ending up right back here wringing your hands, drinking the same stale, warm beer. Ask yourself who isn’t sick and tired of hanging around this prehistoric town as you fuck your sacred noise and burn, burn so dispassionately. “I stood at the wall, my fingers covered in ash, and I wrote my new name.”

-Charles Cicirella
