First song written in months...it's a kind of nightmare, dealing with communism, camemberts, Fargo North Dakota, Truth, Robert Zimmermann, Mona Lisa and Paris shop girls.

Leon Trotsky played by Wallace Landreth, in his own words.
My deepest thanks, wal.
Rest is me, including all guitars, balalaika, harmonica, ukulele...

Ah, and it is alternative comedy : in the end, you can almost hear me crying.

I hope you'll enjoy...

Hahaha...this is too much, Dylan and wal. Great great song. Sounds like a mix between Frank Zappa and Randy Newman for the lyrics and Tom Petty and the Stones for the music. Fantastic tune, thanks for sharing nightmares...

I called Trotsky. He is in Mexico. I asked, 'Why don't you have a landline?' He told me."At the end, I wondered the same. I was an important person,before I was axed. I think cell phones easier to use." smiley

Hehehehe, yeah, life is such a drag!
Sorry Leon was in this Japanese tourist mood, Dyl, I would be interested in knowing his opinion on deeper issues than what kind of coffee you can drink in Fargo ND.
Huge track, man, funny and thought-provoking. I LOVE it!!!
Wally is a perfect Trotsky and you're too good.

This is brilliant i love it has elements of Tom Petty and Cohen but the comedic value is great. Awesome! If Leon was around today he would have been proud. Thats 2 songs he's been mentioned in (the first being the stranglers no more heros) and this one is by far the best.

this is stunningly good and so far out of the box that it compels - you can't stop listening to it. I am flabbergasted that this hasn't migrated over to some sort of commercial radio - it would certainly get play. Perhaps you could send it to someone like Nic Harcourt - host of Morning Becomes Eclectic on KCRW in Los Angeles -- he listens to music sent to him by anyone. But this is great stuff. Thanks to you both! Les
