Please Tomorrow CD Perceval Press

The first of what seems an unfinished three act play: Please Tomorrow is a psychedelic weave of light extinguishing dark. The cover and inside art express emotions of isolation, cold and a hibernation of feeling. The musical threads icicle through a faded-out acid trip of juggernauted emotion and fade into a near Bach-like fugue in slow motion. The piano in this release seemed like the foundation for the piano themes in Perceval release Intelligence Failure. But the addition of Indian percussion themes makes this release distinct from others.

A connection with Mother Earth is threaded throughout the compositions. At times this drive is felt in the form of snow and at other times the warmth of sun melting snow or light glistening off snow.

But the eerie feeling of the CD still seems politically motivated - perhaps Indian driven from his homeland or maybe man thrown out of Eden. Such expressions are present in the phrases some of which feel Japanese and others that feel Indian but both are a parallel storyline of oppression. The haunting images are those found in a dream turned nightmare sequence. But they ultimately find resolve and comfort in the light of a single track titled Sunrise.

Composed and performed solo by Buckethead (Guns N' Roses), perhaps Sunrise is at least in the top five of his best work. The flowing feeling of waking from the pain of dark into the arms of light weaves from a duet of competing and complimentary themes.

But despite the slight sense of resolution with the last track of Please Tomorrow there is still a draw into a need for more.

Please Tomorrow is available for purchase from Perceval Press for $10 here:

Publisher & Editor
Kriss Perras owns Ruptured Media where she publishes Malibu Arts Journal. Ruptured Media is also a story development company. Kriss has been tenacious and fought authority from the very start of her career in journalism. Kriss' first story as a journalist was for her college newspaper covering George W. Bush and Steve Forbes in the Iowa Caucuses during the 2000 election. She showed up at the hotel where Bush was to speak with her editor's letter of assignment in hand. She credentialed at the press desk like every other press person. She had questions in hand she had prepared to ask the Presidential candidate. She walked into the speaking room to find the press was roped off from the candidate. Being new to election coverage, and journalism, she was disappointed. She stood next to a seasoned AP photographer on the press platform. She asked the AP photographer if she could get out from behind the ropes and ask Bush her questions. The AP photographer said, "Well, you can try." So she did. She stepped out from behind the ropes and waited in line behind the people seeking the candidate's autograph. When it was her turn, she introduced herself to Bush as a college journalist and started to ask her questions. Bush said, " Wait, are you a journalist?" She said, "Yes." Bush nodded to his Secret Service team. They promptly came over on each side of her. She was 5'6" tall and weighed 127 pounds. The Secret Service men were well over a foot taller than her and obviously guys who worked out often. They could pick her up with their pinky fingers. They quickly picked her up by her arms, carried her over the ropes and plopped her back down on the press platform as she was still asking Bush her questions. Bush to his credit said, "Please give her one of my books. The answers to her questions are in my book." So she had to read his entire book, but she indeed found the answers to her questions. She also drew political cartoons for her college newspaper and still does today. Her next big break came in 2002, still as a student, with an interview with former US National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brezinski. Kriss went on in 2006 to found PCH Press, Malibu's daily newspaper. With PCH Press, she had extensive coverage of the battle against LNG and the fight against the placement of an LNG port being placed off the coast of Malibu and Oxnard, among other local news. She has covered Olara Otunnu, former United Nations Undersecretary General and Special Representative for Children in Armed Conflict when he spoke in Los Angeles in 2006. She covered Democracy Now! journalist Amy Goodman when she spoke in Los Angeles in 2006. She has interviewed Progressive David Swanson and numerous Malibu Mayors. In 2007, She founded Malibu Arts Journal magazine. Kriss built Malibu Arts Journal from the ground up. She has taken the magazine from an unknown dot com to a respected title. She earned the magazine digital distribution through Magzter and the iTunes App Store where it now enjoys broad based readership across the globe. She is a member of the national honor society Who's Who In American Universities And Colleges. Her photogrpahy has aired on CMTV channel 14 Spokane, Washington. *Photo Copyright 2017: Alan Weissman
