This 8 track acoustic guitar album is a big change for the experimental musician Maurizio Abate. After many years of psychedelic albums in which improvisation was combined with a creative recording process, he composed an entire album based on a more traditional method: acoustic guitar solo.During winter 2014 he organized a series of italian screenings preview of the documentary “ In Search of Blind Joe Death: The Saga of John Fahey” and that occasion encouraged Maurizio to experience the guitar solo language.After playing these compositions at live shows, Maurizio decided to record the tracks in an almost definitive way, nevertheless the live interpretation of the songs is always different and mutating.He recorded alone in his house between Christmas 2014 and new year’s day on a reel tape recorder, performing acoustic guitar and, in a couple of songs, electric guitar and harmonica."Loneliness, Desire and Revenge" it's an intimate and confidential album, it evokes moods and emotions of the musician during the past 2 years.

Brent Sirota's notes for this release cannot be bettered; so read and be edified,I think.
Tom Carter's work is extraordinary and seems to have an unshakeable inner resolve to it...it's a powerful experience and beautiful to boot as it moves from a meander to a raging torrent. John Cratchley

This isn't the album you listen to tirelessly day in and day out. But that's not what they're trying to achieve, either. In Sun and Violence, Heroin in Tahiti act as shamans inviting us on an adventure promising to excite the chakra. Jakob Bellamy
