MOSQUITOEVILLE REVISITED Frenchy Burrito's long awaited CD Mosquitoeville (revisited) is finally completed. Please be aware this is not a commercial effort in the normal sense but it's good lo-fi entertainment. Something like a cheap dime-store novel. Stories about foreign wars and foreign countries. A song called THE BALLAD of JOHN DILLINGER chronicling one of Americas most infamous folk heros career. Songs about old hobos longing for their lost loves and lives. A Tom Waits cover and a Fred Neil cover are thrown in for decoration plus a Townes Van Zandt song and it all takes place in the imaginary town of Mosquitoeville. (No, Jimmy Buffett doesn't live there -- nobody wears flip flops in Mosquitoeville) Or you could compare it to a Stephen King novel. Something like Pet Cemetery where the songs are always getting loose and getting hit by cars trying to cross the road and Frenchy has to go get them and bury them in the swamp out in the back of his trailer park. Imagine listening to "Mogadishu Wireless Radio Blues" on WBITE FM out of Mosquitoeville on a warm sultry night and you get the picture....... Its lo-fi entertainment folks.
