Aurelio Voltaire’s 3rd album: 2002
“A NYC Club scenester and comic book creator, Voltaire has discovered the alchemical formula to transform formal, minor key violins and gypsy acoustic guitar into an aural tickle that makes skulls grin and devils tap their toes. Voltaire puts the fun back into morbidity.” – Lollipop Magazine
Known for his satirical dark humor, Voltaire gives love the finger on Boo Hoo: a break up record for lonely hearts with an ax to grind! This isn’t a CD you share with the one you love. This is the CD you send to your ex! Voltaire’s third CD explores the soulfulness of modern music, yet does it within his trademark old world, acoustic gypsy sound. After spending the better part of the last 12 years in a somewhat idyllic relationship, Voltaire suddenly found himself with a one way ticket to Heartbreak Hotel. This led to an album’s worth of material spanning the gamut of emotions of love lost — from bitterness, remorse, sorrow and anger to irreverence, defiance, acceptance and consolation; mixed – of course – with heavy doses of the satirical dark humor Voltaire has become notorious for.
The track “BRAINS!” recounts an evil meteor hungry for human brains and was featured on the Cartoon Network show The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. It has its own wiki page!
