Così come i nastri delle audiocassette celano le musiche più intime del proprio passato, così i libri e i pensieri che nascono tra le mura di una stanza o di uno scantinato sono quello che in parte rende una persona ciò che è.
Questo passato, che a volte si dimentica presto, ispira i miei scarabocchi facendomi immaginare come nei nastri di quelle polverose cassette siano incisi i miei ricordi.
O quelli di qualcun altro.
Forse è possibile ascoltare quelli che sono ricordi che non ti appartengono nei nastri che vengono dal passato, ed è di questi nastri che vado a caccia.

Like the cassettes's tapes conceal the music of our past, so our books and thoughts often makes us what we are. Readings or thoughts made between the walls of a room or a basement.
Thinking to the past, the one which is too soon forgotten, inspired me to write scribbles on the idea that my memories were recorded on dusty tapes.
Mine or maybe someone else's memories.
I like the idea too that someone else's memories could be heard on those dusty tapes coming from the past. And those are the tapes I'm hunting.


(Laino / Alfonsi)

Road, hard road
I'm walking on an old road
I left my shoeshine back
while I was thinking about my past
Streets running by
remind me of some old times
when things were happening
like a child I stood and stare
'cause memories are strange
hiding in some place
way back in time
like the steps in our life
I wonder why
some people don't remind
what it came like a song
or in the sleep when I was young

It's an old tape of memories
an old tape I've lost
yes it is...

Hiss on a tape
talks about my fate
indeed about my past
that disappear too fast
Right in the place I'm in
a room stuffed with
books, things and sounds
chasing me all around
Shearing is beating hard
on his piano in my backyard
with a silly little smile
Kerouac by his side
Brought out of a song
things that belong
to a time that is gone
is it mine or is it yours?

It's just a room full of memories
an old tape I've lost
It's just an old tape of memories
an old tape I've lost
