Leon Loved The Snaked Girl
“Leon Loved The Snaked Girl” is a salute to Directors of Photography who knew their stuff, a namesake of its soundtrack, “Leon”.
Ever seen Blade Runner? The original, that is. In it, Leon Kowalski was the replicant who said, “Time to die”.
He was in love with the girl whose snake scale said it all.
“Leon” was composed and performed by me (with John Ö. on the drums and Josh A. on the cello.)
When I recorded it I wanted to replicate in music how the film appeared.
Basically, I was aiming for Blade Runner-type gloom mixed with a late Beatle-y vibe, that is, the Magical Mystery Tour era. Plus some Stone Roses.
