Papamalo – “Indestructible Bunny” mp3
The phrase “they broke the mold when they made this one” comes to mind when I think of one Piero Amadeo Infante. Piero didn’t just break the mold, he obliterated it into a bazillion still-smoking shards. He is, to borrow a phrase from Hunter S. Thompson, “one of God’s own prototypes” – there’s never been anyone like him, and there never will be again. So, I was delighted to discover this morning that Piero (aka Papamalo, aka Pio) recently posted some unreleased tracks he’s done in various projects over the years, on his myspace page. It’s a great listen, all bold and original work. For the uninitiated, Piero was the lead singer and co-founder with guitarist Michael Maung of The Freaky Executives, and later Los Angelitos, both sensational headlining acts in the SF Bay Area, and his list of musical collaborations and projects is basically endless. Sadtown: Hour of the Rabbit is an autobiographical epic hip-hop rock opera of sorts, featuring Pio’s own alter ego, the “Indestructible Bunny.” Enjoy.
