about

from Protons and Electrons: Atom 10 - Amargosa State of Mind / Maple Stave - Thunderkiss '85, released 6/24/2019

Breezier & airier than a lot of Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends songs, this one is an homage to the Amargosa Hotel and Opera House in Death Valley Junction. Guest vocals by Josh from the Rutabega and keys by Sean from Nervous Curtains/the Paperchase

Here's the same information, but with more words:

Ok, Conan Neutron & the Secret Friends is, as always, myself on Vocals and guitar, Tony Ash on bass and Dale Crover on drums. This time we are joined by Sean Kirkpatrick of the pAperchAse and Nervous Curtains on synth, piano, keys, etc, and Josh Hensley of the rutabega on harmony vocals.

It's a lot more low key than a lot of our stuff and is directly written about the Amargosa Hotel and Opera House in Death Valley Junction California.

There is a stunning documentary on it called Amargosa. You should see it.

Here's what that link says:
"In the ghost town of Death Valley Junction stands the Amargosa Opera House, where for the past 33 years former New York dancer and artist Marta Becket has performed her own ballets in the theater she spent seven years handpainting with stunning murals."

Yup. I consider Marta Becket to be a personal inspiration and the Amargosa Opera House to be a paragon of DIY attitude and uncompromising vision. This song is meant to honor her achievements and memory, and to celebrate the idea that empty spaces are places to paint, what is possible.

If you've ever seen Lost Highway, it's the hotel at the end.
It's an incredible place in the middle of absolutely NOWHERE and Marta Becket was an American treasure.

Empty spaces are places to paint what is possible
wanting faces can control their fate, it is plausible
An Amargosa, Amargosa state of mind

lyrics

Empty spaces are places to paint what is possible
wanting faces can control their fate, it is plausible
An Amargosa, Amargosa state of mind

Ripped, shredded and tattered... Every little bit matters
Ripped, shredded and tattered... Every little bit matters
Ripped, shredded and tattered... Every little bit matters
Ripped, shredded and tattered... Every little bit matters

Empty places are spaces to paint, a world of possibles
Audiences always in their place, ready and malleable
An Amargosa, Amargosa state of mind

Ripped, shredded and tattered... Every little bit matters
Ripped, shredded and tattered... Every little bit matters
Ripped, shredded and tattered... Every little bit matters
Ripped, shredded and tattered... Every little bit matters
