Dan Stuart
What business does an aging post-punk has-been have making a kick-ass rock record with Twin Tones, one of Mexico's hottest young bands? Last anyone heard, Green on Red's Dan Stuart had moved to Oaxaca from NYC to escape reality, not that anyone cared. Sure, after a decade and a half gone missing, he had released both the LP and book, The Deliverance of Marlowe Billings, in 2012 and 2014 respectively on Cadiz Music in London, but outside of some grudging critical respect, really a sympathy fuck for days gone by, plus some sporadic touring, well the planet could get along without Stuart's morbidly self-righteous world view just fine. His inability to lighten-up and endure life's little insults like the rest of us had grown old and tired, like Stuart himself. Okay, you went away, now go away. Still he refused...
Marlowe's Revenge started in a concrete bunker in Oaxaca, where Daniel Sanchez Jimenez was more used to recording Oaxacan banda than depressed gabachos. Stuart wandered in one day with a dozen songs written on an opened tuned cracked Martin that mirrored Stuart's psyche perfectly. Stuart became curious and wondered if he could find a band to play some of these songs, a Mexican band that wasn't a caricature of Mexico herself. So he did what anyone would do, search Youtube and he found them...
Their name was Twin Tones, no the. They came from Mexico City and played instrumental music with some of the same Ital-Mex influences as the last band Stuart had recorded with, Sacri Cuori from Italy. So on his way to Europe to play some loserfest, Stuart dropped by the lads studio in gritty Ecatepec and started the second half of Marlowe's Revenge. The first song they recorded together was Soy Un Hombre, and indeed Stuart had become a man again, stiff boner and all. Pleased, Stuart sent Twin Tone's leader and now his producer Gabriel Lopez some of the Oaxacan tapes and told him to overdub what he wanted, make yourself a nice margarita. The results blew Stuart away and so the whole enchilada was smuggled up north to JD Foster to mix and the rest is... well not history exactly but still something worth listening to if you give a shit about stuff like this.
So there you have it, the making of a real rock record, maybe the last one ever, who fucking knows? Let's face it, no one really wanted this to happen, and now that it has there are some that would prefer that it would just go away so the world can get back to its predictable shitty self. But not Stuart... he's just getting started.
