This is the last of a series of 14 short posts which illustrate the tracks from the forthcoming album The Mint Hotel. The songs on the album are inspired by the 'Beat' generation of writers, artists and revolutionaries working from the 1950s to the early 1970s, providing an alternative view of the 'wholesome' American society advertisers and politicians wanted you to see. Each post features a piece of artwork related to the song, created using Artificial Intelligence software; and also an explanation of the inspiration for that song.
"Not even Ruben Salazar - 10 seconds before his death - could believe he was about to have had his head blown off for no reason at all.” (Hunter S. Thompson, The Great Shark Hunt).
A dangerous game to be mixed up in, Miami in the 1970s. Tequila and Tanqueray, Coke and Clubs. Wine, women and song, as expressed here by a hanger-on to the scene. What could possibly go wrong in this paradise?
