Cream Scene Carnival

An Arts & Culture Magazine – Punk Rock & Irreverent since 2009.

Art. Lit. Comics. Music.

Art taps into the unconscious mind, and maybe, depending on how deep we’re into this day-drinking, we could even argue that we’re tapping into the COLLECTIVE UNCONSCIOUS.

The Masked Man

CSC: Luis, you’re a garage rocker and spaniard, but you didn’t seem surprised when we told ya we wanted to feature you in Wild West. You seemed to think it was a natural fit.

Wild West not only ‘happened’ in the US but in México and other countries and it spoke Spanish also. Anyway, it is always the same history. Invaders destroy and annihilate until they take everything. Europeans did it in Africa & America and you Americans did it also within yourselves and to other countries. Endless history.

CSC: In the movies, a cowboy is motivated by love or vengeance. How ’bout you?

Both. I’ve recently discovered that I’ve got a superpower: I can create vengeance songs. Do not piss me off.

CSC: Are you a white hat or a black hat?

Always black….not always white.

How to Make Love to a Saguaro Cactus

Once you have purged yourself of self-hatred, which, dear partner, is not our job to tell you how to do, just that you must do it, you can begin.
