Blow Back

Blow Back’ is shorthand for the primal construct that points to the fact that, “for each and every reaction, there is an equal and opposite reaction.” I first heard the term ‘blow back’ in relationship to the funky ass shit the CIA has been up to, in our names, for the last 50 years. I use the term today as short hand for ‘hang-over’. For every party, there’s an equal and opposite reaction.

I chose this song today because of its rangy, leading melody, plus today, I feel like the guy in the bubble. Here is Scot, once again, laying out all the basic tracks—doing his funky duty. Next comes a vocal/guitar tract that flits with the fundamentals, and then invites them to come along on his lyrical journey. Scotty does Persia. Welcome aboard.

Today’s artwork is a hand colored etching done in the late 1980’s. This piece is hand-colored with transparent acrylic; the fluid that seems to flows forth, like blood, from the heart of Scot’s color work. The texture along the top of the etching was created by running a roulette wheel (of another kind) across the surface of the acid resist. It is hard the resist acid, even for a metal plate
