about

Saiko was a friend of mine who came to visit time to time. A bundle of sing-song baubles hung on the vines extending from his, or her, tongues. Saiko of the dry-times of the desert and silences. This session just blasted out like a furnace in a room of North 10 Street NW in Albuquerque, New Mexico. An old guitar drawn up from Baranca del Cobre, Chihuahua, his mictrotoned voice, completely deranged and straight-edge. Seemed to call up lyrics out of nowhere. Listening now I recall I'd forgotten to hit record for "I remember my birthday" -- which had run to 12 spell-binding verses, never the same Rio Grande twice, remains suggested in this last track's trickle, just before Saiko disappeared once again.
