1. Coal Mine

Working in a coal mine
Working in a coal mine
Working in a coal mine
losing my mind…

You say, Son, you better get up
Go to the back of a pick up truck

Then you’re gonna be the king of the coal town

Mystery House

by Alan Silva

Released 2004
Lusitone Records
Released 2004

These early recordings are an invigorating mix of bohemian basement tunes, which allows the singer's discursive method to act restively. Supports a dreamy fugue. A masterpiece. Don't hesitate to buy this now.
NOTES
Alan plays acoustic songs in a variety of styles from Indie to Folk to Blues. He takes inspiration from a variety of sources in music as well as from literary figures. Imagine Bob Dylan channeling Ernest Hemingway or Leonard Cohen writing tunes after reading some work by T.S. Eliot or The Velvet Underground trying to make sense of William S. Burroughs. He describes his songs as “familiar objects that are closer to someone because …
