about

Paul’s seventh album 'La Reine Contre Paul Cargnello' (2010), was once only available at shows. His goal was to find some stylistic bridge between Electro & the Blues. Did he succeed? You be the judge. Recorded mostly on a Tascam fourtrack and an MPC, this album is dirty as hell. And with only a couple thousand ever printed, it’s damned near impossible to get your hands on.

Tell Me 'bout Magnets, Webb.
(Music & Lyrics by Paul Cargnello)

The virgins of speak balance the words on their tongue
with a meaning so cruel they will eat their young
The king of quarters drops his fortune into the slot
he needs to hear all the songs aboutwho he`s not
Broken fingers poke and broken eyes look
you can never retake what you already took
Tell me ‘bout Magnets, Webb.

The fifth of May I wear that day like a mask
the agelessness of death my name engraved on a flask
I never knew but boy, I did talk
even without the key I would unlock
I lived in the mud and I dreampt only of you
my life an endless mystery without a clue
Tell me ‘bout Magnets, Webb.
Track Name: Dream For Luck
Dream For Luck
(Music & Lyrics by Paul Cargnello)

everybody i know (you know) dreams for luck
so much heat that you can't hold it in your hand,
staring straight and long into the tinted glass
you're gonna do what you will,
bit the world is never still
another winter, they're all the same
got a shitty hand, playing a blind game
you're gonna do what you will...
you gotta what you can to get unstuck
a sharp wind, the smell of wet cement,
thinking about the good times
wondering where they went,
you're gonna do what you will...
got a slow snap, and a long whistle
Paul be quick and Paul be nimble,
i got to do what i can to get unstuck
Track Name: The Ledge
THE LEDGE
(Words & Music by Paul Cargnello)


WHAT HAVE I BECOME, SOME KIND OF STREET POLITICIAN
I PUT MY FISTS INTO THE GROUND
WHEN THERE AINT NOBODY LISTENING
INSIDE I’M AS WEAK AS A CHILD
ALL DAY AND STRAIGHT INTO TONIGHT
I’M AFRAID LIKE A DEAF MAN WHO’S LOSING HIS SIGHT
HE TIED THE KNOT, HE CARRIED THE KETTLE,
IT BURNED ALL NIGHT, UNTIL IT MELTED THE METAL
HE TIED THE KNOT, HE CARRIED THE KETTLE,
THEN ALL THE TOWERS FELL

WHERE AM I NOW, LOSING BLOOD WITH A SPLIT VEIN
A HANDSHAKE SEALED THE DEAL
I STOLE THE THUNDER IN THE POURING RAIN
INSIDE I’M AS HELPLESS AS A CHILD STUBBORN AS CEMENT
READING THE WORDS WONDERING WHAT THE FUCK I MEANT
A CONSPIRACY OF COLOURS IN THE LAND OF LOST TIME
I LOOK UP TO THE STARS ABOVE
AND REALIZE NONE OF THEM ARE MINE
AND NONE OF THEM ARE YOURS AND NONE OF THEM CARE
I’M PARKED ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD
AND I DON’T HAVE A SPARE
