UConn's Sound Alternative

Dark Side of the Highway (Music)

http://www.facebook.com/johnny.timewarp

With a fusion of musical inspiration that ranges from country swing to death metal to the heart and organs of dark folk and old bluegrass, a listen to "Dark Side of the Highway" evokes the dreamscape of leading a steel breeze into an Old West gunfight, knowing you're probably going to die but flirting with the ruse of hope without redemption's promise; maybe even the idea that an eternal Hell of heartfelt music might warrant the compromise of not sitting on a cloud forever playing trite pop songs on a three string lyre. Feel the burn of whiskey, the glow of mortality at the tip of each cigarette as life's soundless winds abandon the heart and tease the mind insane. Spend the early hours with a spurned companion, the memory of falling apart. Dissipate the burden. Realize that the temptations surrendered to will inevitably grant freedom to every wretched soul.
