CRY OUT - "MORE ECHOES OF A QUESTION NEVER ANSWERED... WHY?" 12"
A heartbreaking and triumphant release. There's a difficulty in writing about this without having known the artist but such tragic stories are universal, and it feels especially true with underground artists from all walks and times. CRY OUT is the project of Rosie Davis, a young musician from Nova Scotia who was working on this album at the time of her passing. The songs contained on "MORE ECHOES..." have an off the wall approach - especially for something existing within the confines of 80's UK punk sounds and a drum machine - but each song is perfectly honest and venomously astute. There are guitar and bass lines that feel either revealingly quixotic or plain unfinished, even a party horn (those things from bad parties - yeah, those things) and it’s 100% likely the most sarcastic you'll ever hear on wax. which certainly adds another humble and personal layer to the music. Despite being unfinished and unpolished, the songs on this EP do display a knack for clever songwriting. More echoes of a question never answered... Why? A tragic question at its heart, and it feels even more so given the context surrounding this release. The music is a love letter to Anarcho punk favourites and this release is a heartfelt love letter to the artist. Rest in peace, Rosie.
LA VIDA ES UN MUS:
More Echoes Of A Question Never Answered... Why? 12” is the posthumous release of Rosie Davis' solo project. On it the Nova Scotia artist poured all her soul into four very special songs, which were not fully completed by the time of her passing. The DIY recording is crude and rudimentary, and obviously influenced by the golden era of British anarcho punk but with nods to so many colourful elements. Mixing CRASS, FLUX OF PINK INDIANS, HONEY BANE and SAD LOVERS AND GIANTS to create a very personal drum machine fuelled punk record. With very personal lyrics giving the recording a layer of intimacy and creating a record clearly of its time.
The sleeve artwork was designed by Rosie herself with a back cover pieced together with some artwork the family had. The record comes with an 8-page lyric booklet in a 300 press and the proceeds for its sale will be donated to Rosie’s family.
