    One Review:
    Peter Dizozza – “Songs Of The Golf Wars” – Cinema 7/Olive Juice Music
    “Songs Of The Golf Wars” in an extremely intriguing proposition. “The Golf Wars” is a musical play – script & songs written by Dizozza – recorded here with Major Matt Mason USA & his Olive Juice pals as: “The Songs Of The Golf Wars”.

    Like a marginally more introverted Magnetic Fields – Dizozza not only works predominantly with keyboards - but also embraces the notion of the ‘pop’ song as a big show tune. The carefully annotated sleeve notes leave us in no doubt that a higher level of intelligence than is usually attributed to ‘pop’ musicians has been employed during the making of this record. Eccentric, eclectic, fiercely individualistic – the words could well have been specially commissioned for the work of Peter Dizozza.

    I found it (almost) impossible to digest “Songs Of The Golf War” as anything other than a complete whole. Singling out any one track above another would be a massive disservice to every other track present on this wonderful disc (contrarily, having said that: “Living In Freedom”, “Forests Of Neurosis” & “Take Me, Love” did capture a small portion of my heart from the very first listen).

    Tracks 15 to 25 contain “Shipping The Satellite” – a live performance from 1999 featuring trakMARX favourite, Jeffery Lewis, amongst the assembled host of performers.

    NYC & Olive Juice have announced yet another remarkable talent - & Mr Merritt would be strongly advised to watch his back.

VERSE ONE Ancient times seem to follow me wher- Ever I go. Hide my crimes, and enquiring minds are Eager to know Wash me clean, call a closure, I’ll be- Gin a new scene when you Set your prisoner free. CHORUS Square one, where does my project be- Gin? Square two, where does this new one fit In with all the rest? I make the Best. And I make it ‘cause I need it. Square three, how will I ever get Past square four, making a world that will Last through all the wash and wearing? There it’s holding; There it’s tearing Make my world hold fast to last a lifetime. VERSE TWO Up at dawn, take a swim and eat and Go to a room. Work ‘til dawn on what you never thought I’d Ever resume ‘Til it’s done and we’re calling it the Scene where I run, as you Set your prisoner free. CHORUS There it waits for when you Set your prisoner free? CHORUS REPRISE Square one, where does the project be- Gin? Square two, where does the new one fit In with all the rest? I make the Best, and I make it ‘cause I need it Square three, how do we ever get Past square four? making a world that will Last through all the wash and wearing There it’s holding, There it’s tearing May the world hold fast to last a lifetime, and more.

Gypsies from Egypt roam from Egypt to Rome Trapped in a state of Bohemia! Bohemian girl bring your sunshine to me To my home in Beirut by the sea. Living in freedom again Freely my mind gets to wandering Free to roll over the caps on the water Free to dig holes in the sand. Living in freedom again Freely my four limbs are pedaling Over the craters along the equator Up to an arctic night land. My dad and your dad made wars long ago Back when we both were in nurseries Fantastical dreamer, take back what you gave. You will never take me for your slave.
