STORY OF STAR GIRL
by Neezy Dynamite
“I started playing guitar and writing weird little songs when I was 7 or so. My best friends dad was a big shot producer and always had all kinds of rockstars and recording artists hanging out at their house. My mom had an acoustic guitar hanging on the wall and I secretly played it when she went out, even though I wasn’t supposed to. I wanted to impress these mystical creatures that embodied so many of my secret desires… even though I don’t think I ever got to have my big performance for those people.. It was just a fantasy that inspired me. And I just kept writing songs and making noise regardless if anyone paid attention. I was constantly trying to get people to start bands with me.. even in kindergarten.
Last year I found myself living in the USA and decided it was the main stage, and it was time to get serious and release some music officially and the proper way.
Greetings from Mars has intergalactic overtones, because earthly drama is so boring, and yet humans are so fascinating. I have a lot of fire in my belly and try to channel the internal conflicts into some kind of sonic art form. I want to make raw and visceral music, because the mainstream can be so underwhelming. I don’t think it reflects the inner turmoil we all swish around in our little body structures. Not in the current era anyway..
What do I like about this record? I think it’s frantic and fuzzy, it will charge you up like a battery and get you pumped. I really think it gives you energy.. a kind of masculine martian energy. Emitting and transferring a feverish state or the eternal fire.”
