DJ Damage: Summer of Peg

It is indeed a pleasure to introduce everyone to DJ Damage. We caught this mix as it was posted on Twitter by NuJazzSpirit's Music Blog. If you haven't already done so, stop by and get a generous portion of wonderful music and dj mixes. We are kindred spirits and have similar tastes in artistry. Another good friend and a blogger worth noting is my friend Nathalie. Her bilingual french/english posts focus on great musicians who are full of soul. Shout outs to Nat and NuJazzSpirit for an outstanding selection of musical tweets. We'll be sure to keep you close by our side.

Mr. Mendez : Another Saturday....

I wish I could say that I "discovered" the talent of Anthony Mendez. Yeah, that would be too cool. Truth is, he was referred to "us" by my dear friend Sharon Holleran. Sharon and I always have wonderful conversations and if it werent' for an unlimited calling plan, I'd be in trouble. During one of our recent lengthy interludes, Sharon mentioned Mr. Mendez and the rest is his--story.

This is an exclusive listen and preview of his yet untitled album. Yeah, for everyone from Cali to the rest of the world in search of new, wonderful, and refreshingly good music.  Check out my man Anthony Mendez and show your love....

Another Saturday
Anthony Mendez ©2005

I hate the fact you gotta come home to bullshit
Come home and do shit
Tweaking on the weekend just to feel like you’ve used it
Again I’m so tired of losing time/ But
Blame myself, because I’m the only one seeing
The choices I’m choosing
Fusing together / music with weather
Sick of California but it’s hard to fuck with
Better places / sweeter faces.
A City map full of mazes
Will get you lost trying to trace it
Drawing dreams on your legs
It makes sense to break a couple of eggs
In the process
It’s like a mosh pit, running around in circles
Acting like you’ve lost it
The cost of freedom makes you go a little crazy
Amazing what you see at bus stops
When the love stops baby
I’m going insane, I’m feeling the pain

Why on earth we gotta play
With old formulas
I’ve sold all my trust / Just to say
We should never hesitate to look behind us
Smiling as we walk away
Reminding me of Saturdays
When things are the way they should be.

Too often I find myself; teetering the fine line
In the divine search for happiness, I hunt god
But find me and nothing else
Justified by calling it discovery of self
You know / ordinary practices of artists on their mattresses
And you know, you
Get to the point where all you think about
Is you know…you
But I’m proud and I miss my momma too
I’m worried my little nephews growing up with
Out a clue on how to be a man
With the only men in his life is his crack daddy
And “Dez Hope” for the mic
Me’ I’m too busy star gazing for my name in lights
Always preaching that tomorrow I’m gonna make it right.
And his father / you know what he’s fucking like
The kind of man that would dare steal his son’s bike
Destroy a kid / sprinkle him inside his crack pipe
Not give a fuck
Then throw a couple of dollars and hopes that it’ll make it up

Why on earth we gotta play
With old formulas
I’ve sold all my trust / Just to say
We should never hesitate to look behind us
Smiling as we walk away
Reminding me of Saturdays
When things are the way they should be.
