“October Myst” by Adrian H. Molina w/ Mannequin Rituals, Up Before the Sunrise (2008)
This week marks the 9-year anniversary of the War in Afghanistan – the longest war in American history. There is no end to this war nor the war in Iraq. These are resource wars, wars of power and geopolitical/economic control.
Many people have asked me what “October Myst” is about. To this point, I have given very few people a straight answer. The Mannequin Rituals, tracks 7-10 of “Up Before the Sunrise” particular, were partially about their mystery. The poetics. Theatrics. The art of storytelling. The art of unraveling truth. Who dares to put forth the time or effort to know?
