Okay, I figured I could justify wasting time online by starting my own blog and posting lyrics, thoughts and other miscellaneous rants.
Allow me to introduce myself: My name is Alexei Moon Casselle from Minneapolis, Minnesota. I just turned 27 on September 11th, and I am currently painting houses to make those ends meet. I am in two bands.The first one, Roma di Luna is basically me and my lovely wife Channy playing original acoustic ballads, traditional folk and gospel and anything else we are influenced and inspired by. Joined by an assortment of talented friends who drop in and help us out from time to time, we have just released our second CD and hope to tour soon.
The second band (in no particular order) is Kill the Vultures. For those who know/knew me as an MC and not a guitar playing folk singer, you may remember a group I was in several years ago called Oddjobs. That went ahead and died on me, and KTV was formed with four of the five Oddjobs members including Stephen Lewis (Anatomy), Mario DeMira (Nomi), Adam Waytz (Advizer) and myself (Crescent Moon). We still make "rap" music for lack of a better term, but you will understand upon listening why that isn't always the only genre we tread upon, and why I have such a difficult time categorizing our music. I'm not too hung up on titles anyway; music is music.
For more info on those projects check out www.romadiluna.com and myspace.com/killthevultures. The latter of the two sites has been hacked repeatedly and violated, so I apologize in advance for any incoherence.
I am not certain what I want to do with this thing yet, but my original thought was that I'd like to have a place where I can post song lyrics that I have written and other pieces of writing that I am fairly satisfied with.
