We had a room at Tropicana Motel It was a small room with a bed That was the only thing that still smelled like our love that's the only thing I remember It gets that feeling in your guts you know it's barf but it could be lust
2.
The agent enters the room Miss Burkley your son has committed suicide cuz he's a junky The plunger sucks tricklers of blood like a purple jellyfish It was an empty room with red walls Scent of urine feces and sperm Genitals still beating 7 a.m.'s low and grey light filtered flashy through the shutters Wide roads Occasional cars goin' 70 miles an hour towards derelicted factories Wondering I saw him wondering like a mercenary rides through the night watching miss death With his mightest erection ready to blow I choose the terminal option and the audience cracks out in a wild laughter The agent turns off the TV And the room drowns again in the annoyed light on the bedside table Miss Burkley Your son has committed suicide cuz is a junky The agent leaves the room
3.
Watching mons Veneris With my head between her legs The day is slipping slowly Into an evening silent and vast Languorous copulations Between mermaids and mermen Announcing their cumming blowing into cone-shaped shells
4.
Pictures with violence clash into the truth As they can they'll sneak into their cache Games that seem evergreen cuz libido is intrinsic Perhaps we've been evicted Like a junky through spasms like a lover in spasms games seen and reviewed So if truth out of facts ended in rhyme all crappy songs will come to terms with common sense refuting the forcing of rhyme previously conceived in the first place
5.
At every table they where serving Every table was served every fault was granted Every awkward was pleased every fault was pleased every table was served Winds and drums vibrating giving birth to the love dance

Man's Picken 10:58
The juggler faints after the number with da cake Faces look away thinkin that the juggler went insane The music was sad blood drooling from his face he was left there shamed T'aint no dub from the above it's the pressure of the trigger T'aint no rub from ya block you know how slippy gets da finger Tell me girl behind that lens i wanna know ur wicked fears Into narrow gorges kissed by purple blue moons U're insatiable

about

We had a room at Tropicana Motel, disco d'esordio dei bolognesi Sex With Giallone, è un concept album che racconta a ritroso una storia di sesso e di morte, in un suicidio rituale che come una seduta spiritica evoca lo spirito più maledetto del rock & roll.

Iniziando dalla fine, l'album percorre la sordida storia con una ricchezza strumentale e compositiva che ripercorre in maniera sorprendente, personalissima e autentica tutta la storia "nascosta" della musica popolare degli ultimi cinquant'anni: dalla vena dark di Long Tall Sally che richiama il suono post-punk di Bauhaus o The Fall alla cavalcata trance di Glaswegian Tanz II, memore degli anni novanta più chimici e nichilisti, passando per le violente schegge dub di Man's Picken e l'industrial astrattista alla Throbbing Gristle di Latino Cheat, il tutto permeato da un alone di psichedelia con interventi elettronici che ricordano Delia Derbyshire ai tempi della collaborazione col combo rock dei White Noise.

Quest'approccio musicale, che attinge a piene mani da sperimentazioni e controculture note e meno note, è contrastato dai testi e dall'interpretazione primitiva e inguinale di Peter Smith, viscerale frontman che condensa in brevi esplosioni di parole un'elegia disperata incentrata sugli eventi all'interno dell'immaginario Tropicana Motel, albergo-topos che condensa in sè lo scenario di mille avvenimenti del rock sia narrate che reali, in primis quel Chelsea Hotel reso celebre da Ginsberg, Warhol e Sid Vicious, tra gli altri. L'album diventa così un condensato unico di suoni e parole che traduce tutta l'esperienza ritualistica e performativa del gruppo in una creazione unica e completa, gemma rara senza tempo che avrebbe solo potuto nascere in questo preciso momento storico.
