Xtrupp-Now

This will not be the first time that J'Accuse reserves songs of praise for the Maltese Blink182. Xtruppaw's lyrics struck a good chord in our hearts due to their sarcasm, wit and ability to laugh about life - an attitude that is consonant with the underlying philosophy of J'Accuse. The band rocks and the samples from their new album (you can hear them on www.xtruppaw.com) sound promising enough for us to recommend just one thing: BUY BUY BUY. The Luxembourg posse has sent a representative and friend of the band (Owen D - known as iz-Zen in the Sfigo memoirs) to stock up on the cd's.

You would have to be deaf, dumb and blind not to notice that this is where the real heart of maltese music currently lies. Like good music it captures a mood that people can assimilate with. The anger and frustration at certain Maltese mindsets and prejudices are all well documented by the punk band with balls. I'm sorry Toni, but foretelling Xtruppaw's future victorious participation in Eurovision or Lordi's victory in the great contest was about as "prophetic" as someone foretelling a Juve victory when Mago Moggi was at work.

Back to the drawing board. And don't forget... "Il-Kazz m'hux opinjoni"

You anticipated my post, which I wrote last week about the CD (of course i've listen to the whole album) and which I will publish after its release...

Owen Degabriele. M'ghadix idea dwar deftones.

Dwar anticipation : heqq... ma tantx kien skoop tieghi laqqas. L-iskop kien pjuttost li nitkellem dwar l-aspett satiro-politiku li joghgobni. Wara kollox m'inix ikkwalifikat biex nitkellem dwar muzika (specjalment peress li jiena membru tal-grupp famuz Deaf Tones).... imma l-kazz m'hux opinjoni!

Iva, imma l-blog entry tieghi titkellem fuq il-lirika, l-iktar...ghalhekk ghidtlek anticipajtni. Forsi ftit iktar fid-dettal min tieghek. Ara, ha naqbad u nippublikha.
