MMx110 Trixie Marmalade – Trixieland (The Musical)

A pink orb was seen spinning across the sky in Russia last week. The orb was later spotted hovering Latvia. I woke up this morning by a splash at the door. Outside, in the pink debris of what looked like a type of mushroom drone was a cassette. “To the Mars”, it said, signed with a kiss. It smelled of old cigarettes, wooden chairs, goats, benzedrine and opium. It had to be Trixie. Harvey Steel gives us the lowdown.

There’s no easy way to listen to these tracks/this musical. The heartbreaking intro is too true. The Subject matter so close to our (your?) reality. Humans really have to stop boosting their own egos and start spreading the love. While listening to the lyrics one might think they are childlike, simple, even dumb. But they are so TRUE. Even if this truth comes from a paralell universe, that universe is closing in on this universe. This very reality YOU are living in is under attack. Hatred has won that other battle, the battle situated in Trixies reality. Trixie has never been able to quite land on this world like the rest of us space/time survivors. She landed in a different reality when still being in this reality. While the rest of us got our human bodies Trixie got stuck in a cardboard figure. Also mentally she was living in two realities. I didn’t quite understand that before she started working on this musical, and needed my help. She could sing three part harmonies on her own (!!!) and hum rythms and countermelodies and whatnot, but she could not play any instruments, being cardboard and all. I had to get inside her mind for this project, and that was when i figured she was living a double life. Fighting hatred in a different world, a world where hatred had a tiny advantage. Hatred is getting stronger in this world as well, but hopefully Trixie and her words of wisdom will help a few humans understand that fear and hatred is not the way to go and turn around and start loving. That’s all we really want with this music thing we are doing. Spread the love, heal the world! Unite with love and start healing the world. Trixie would love that.

By the time of this release Trixie has been missing for 16 months. People have reported sightings of Trixie all over the world and we still have a hope that she’s out there spreading love.

Just because you want to
Don’t mean that you have to
Please please humans don’t you
Go to war and kill all hope

Love can heal us.
