Ezra: The King of the Bingo Game by Ralph Ellison

























Not sure of the exact title of the Ralph Ellison story, never quite sure if the first "The" was erronous, James Ezra named his first album The King of the Bingo Game by Ralph Ellison. Of course, he named his first band "Ezra."

Entralled with the "can't win" statement in the Ellison story, James Ezra then read Catch 22. And then he read Of Mice and Men. And then he read that more people lived in cities than in the country. And then he realized he could not get a simple job. And then he looked at the sky and he wept because he had no farm to work.

This album is a James Ezra delusion, a series of paranoid rants about the demise of the farmer and the end of the agarian lifestyle all over the world. Two of the tracks here, "Snake in the Garden" and "Pol Potted Plant," are the death metal tunes that comprise the soundtrack for Living Amnesia, the movie and the game.

Finally, "Kerosine Rooster in the Corn" is the current chart topper from the smash hit movie Burn Down.

Are you ready for your delusion?
