Photography by Hans Telford.
The words and compositions of a deranged Renaissance man.
Penning verse in heathenistic rhyme;
And casting tunes to hold back time.
He is the 8th Earl of a dying line plagued with decadence and
insanity. Under the tutelage of a one eyed gypsy he learnt the secrets
of the East and how to wail on an electric violin; under the gaze of a
toothless hag he learnt the literate arts.
His creations aren't for you. He creates for the devilish high that it
gives. All art to him, is the same. Be it on a gallery wall, or in the
wailings of a heartbroken drunk one Sunday afternoon in London town.
Something a little different for today's Morning Buzz. Byronic Twist is the brainchild of one Sasha Cuha. Sasha is a multi-instrumentalist/artist that composes, plays and reads his own work. Byronic Twist plays music in the vein of Nick Cave and Jim Morrison's experimental drug-laced moments of "American Prayer". Using a variety of instrumentation such as violins, flutes, and guitar, the music sets the tone for the dark contemplative poetry of Sasha Cuha. Byronic Twist has just released an album called "Past the Sparrow Flight Hour". Smoke on!
