Si può modificare il destino di un giocatore d'azzardo? Qualsiasi sia la sua scommessa od ossessione, sembra destinato a giocarsela. Sta a lui decidere che tipo di posta mettere in gioco.
E' come una sorta di maledizione che scorre nel sangue di un giovane ragazzo che dimentica presto le preghiere insegnategli da piccolo.
Il gambler, spesso accostato al rambler, personifica il rischio, la pazzia umana, il vagabondo in eterno viaggio. Il nomade maledetto di cui si narra in molte canzoni e blues è in fondo per me la rappresentazione di quella che è l'intima natura del musicista.

Can the fate of a gambler change? Whatever is, bet or obsession, he's going to risk it. What is at stake is up to him. This damnation runs in the blood of a boy that has soon forgot how to pray.
The gambler, also mentioned as a rambler always sounded to me like a metaphor of the musician's life.


(Laino / Alfonsi)

I feel my wrecked soul is breathing hard today
under this heavy sky
playing all the time
with no friends of mine
I just need to have a busy mind

well I just don't care...

Wearing my obsessions is all I got
leading out my pain
living day by day
I forgot how to pray
there's nothing I can do and I don't know what to say, Lord

I remember my mama used to say:
“You better stay away from
those games I tell you
son there's a gambler
root in your blood”

And I answered:
“Sure mama I can't do
nothing about it
those roots in my blood are
getting my soul”

Now I try to remember when that day
my mind was so young, I knew how to pray
down on my knees I was begging the saints
to tear down the signs that were planted on my way
I say planted on my way like road signs that says
“roots are quite hard to extirpate”
Now I tell you people I began to realize
There was too much fun to gamble with fate

Laino & Broken Seeds is a musical journey through the shamanic and archaic side of the blues. Inspired by southern lands, muddy rivers and vintage equipment, the raw electric resonator of Laino tell stories of lost memories, dizzy dreams and dusty records.
After the EP “Broken Seeds” released in 2014, the band produced “The Dust I Own” (2017, off label records).
