This is Alex Sharp Cole's first album, burned on CD-R's and distributed by hand. He recorded some in Mexico in a shack on the beach rented for $30 USD a month from the owner of a fish taco restaurant.. and then he did the vocals up in Austin Texas. Here was the original text from the first edition of that first album. It was what Alex wrote, by hand, on the back of the first CD's he sold... 'In fact, Hope was very much alive. And breathing deep beneath the streets of the city. Here banded together a loose alliance of children. Join the Resistance. Do you know the vibe of which I speak? The building tension? The silent exchanges in coffee shops, deserts and dreams? For decades the Societal Blah has gained power. Turn an instrument of violence on it's head. Join in the advocates of independent thought, the Underground Railroad for dreams, the forgotten sojourns of the human soul. Expand the general perception of reality to encompass the 'impossible.' Join the resistance.' --- ****REVIEWS BY FANS on garageband.com : for 'anymore' 'Great atmosphere... from the start this is gripping like a classic movie. Twisted in the way that the vocals are muffled with a seething undercurrent playing off beautifully against the flawless piano. String integrity. Reminds me of some material from Radiohead's Kid A album. Also reminiscent of The Cure's Seventeen Seconds album in parts, but with those sunkist West Coast vox over the top it actually permeates with greater melancholy. Powerful work.' ----'sunfly' from St. Albans, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom 'Original start for a very original song. LIke a segment from a rock opera. Nice piano work, and great implementation of percussion and related effects. Really different alternative piece, with classical elements. It keeps your attention, and that's getting harder to find in this genre. I really like the intimate vocal moments...' ----'ERIKproductions' of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada for 'MISSING' '...I've been hooked from the begining... love this song. Ok, this is good work, good movement, words. ^#^you should shop this stuff around to labels. ^#^sounds like the really good old peter gabriel stuff. ^#^this is some of the best stuff I've heard around here. ^#^kudos, i'll download to listen to again. ^#^love the orchestral/epic ending. ----'musicdrone' from Shepherdstown, West Virginia.
