about

Mojo Perry captures the beauty and mystery of the Green Fairy with his 2011 release titled “Absinthe Journeys”. It is 52 minutes of the Artists most refined music to date and an incredible follow up to his 2010 releases “Echoing Endlessly Inside My Head" and “Two Equals One”. Upon opening the CD you find yourself with something worth owning! The Artwork is creative, original, and the vibe of this CD is amazing, and that’s just the beginning! The music of “Absinthe Journeys” provides an ears delight of phenomenal guitar playing, serious grooves, psychedelic craziness, and an unbelievable assortment of serious guitar tones! Every song on this record is different from all the others. From the 4 string Cigarbox Guitar tones of “Naughty Boy” and brilliant psychedelic guitar loopings of “Intermission” to the raw heaviness of “La Fee Verte” and the laughter of “Madness” you have a journey in itself! The distinct fingerprints of “The Madhatter” and “Vagabond” will stick in your head as well as the gut-wrenching tales of “Slow Down” and “I’ll Remember You”. All in all it’s an exciting record and when you listen to it through headphones you will discover lots of new and exciting sounds inside the songs. After listening to it you feel like you have just discovered something. Whether you are a longtime fan or are just discovering Mojo Perry “Absinthe Journeys” will take you for a great ride and you will become addicted to it’s vibe of Blues infused Psychedelic Rock. This is an outstanding record!

Track Name: Naughty Boy
Naughty Boy

She was a slow cooker,
The kind that haunts your sleep.
The kind of woman that wakes you from your dreams.
And I remember all that time, I was just an innocent one.
But in the end that little devil, Oh, she won.
Mother get me my bible
Cuz I need to be saved.

I remember that time that I met her,
I fell into her eyes.
It was last summer in the rain; In the middle of July.
She was a slow cooker, the kind who hypnotize.
Like an angel oh she called me
It was outta sight.
Oh Father get me my shovel
Cuz I got to dig my Only Grave.

And I haven’t been the same since that last July
Oh in my mind she wanders, into that night
Where that slow cooker she held me tight
And beneath a thousand stars it was outta sight
I said Mother get me bible
I need to be saved
Track Name: No Tomorrow
No Tomorrow

All kinds of people dancing around in circles
All chasing the same ole’ dreams
Me, I like it simple like a cute little dimple
Of a kid who is innocent and free
And I’m tryin to live my life like there aint no tomorrow
And I’m tryin’ to live my life like there aint no tomorrow.
Like there aint no tomorrow

All the ups and downs and the bumpin all around
Is worth it when you live your dream
It’s really all so simple like a tiny little ripple
Of a wave in a raging sea
And I’m tryin to live my life like there aint no tomorrow
And I’m tryin to live my life like there aint no tomorrow
Like there aint no tomorrow.

I’m the kind of guy who likes to get high;
If you listen to the rumors that you hear.
What isn’t clear is neither here or there
What does it matter anyway?
And I’m tryin to live my life like there aint no tomorrow
And I’m tryin to live my life like there aint no tomorrow
Like there aint no tomorrow.

Ahh…. Home again…

It’s often kinda funny but beautiful and sunny
And raging thunder lightening
But what a fun ride when you’re goin down the slide
Like a kid when your innocent and free
And I’m tryin to live my life like there aint no tomorrow
And I’m tryin to live my life like there aint no tomorrow
Track Name: Vagabond
Vagabond

I Rolled into Memphis walkin on my two’s
And I could see the steel on my ass kickin shoes
On the road; just me, my guitar, and my backpack.
Not caring if I ever make it back.

When I hit Chicago, it was freezing cold.
Stayed about eight days then I hit the road
Went south and didn’t stop till I hit Texas
Just me and my guitar and my backpack

And I looked to Boston but I never made it through the door
It seems they seen my kind once or twice before
Headed west, for the grass in Portland
Never once caring if I’d make it back
Track Name: Casual Dismissal
Casual Dismissal

Isn’t it funny how we can be?
Casual Dismissal; unquestioned sanity.
Does anyone even notice to see or hear or do anything?
Does anyone ever care? Tell me Please; tell me please.

I was out walking late last spring.
All of a sudden felt different; I wish that I could explain.
I felt happy. I felt sad. I felt everything and in-between.
Has anyone ever felt that? Tell me please; tell me please.

And it’s all funny, how we can be.
One minute lovers the next enemies.
Does anyone even notice how we live each and every day?
Does anyone even care? Tell me please; tell me please.
Track Name: Story Song
Story Song

Here’s a story about Johnny Boy Blue
Everyone yelled and picked on the little fool
So he shut himself from the world
All he had left was his guitar.

Happiness is as Happiness was
What really matters is how we try to live our life
Whether we win or lose
Doesn’t even really matter

Dreams they come and dreams they go
The only time they die
is when we don’t follow our heart.
It’s better to be late than Early from the beginning.

The end of this story is true and blue
That little boy became famous
for how he played his guitar
Isn’t it funny how we’re taught to think about each other?
Track Name: The Madhatter
The Madhatter

Yes I’m freaky sometimes deeky
And I wonder why you’re pointing
I’m no different than you

Yes I’m mad and you’re glad
That’s just bad and its sad
Why is it me and never you?

Dancing in circles in funny little squares
My hat falls to the floor
All kinds of people are looking over here
The Madhatter I fear is me.

So I wonder what your thinking
I don’t know what you’re seeing
I’ve done nothing to you.

How can I take this cloud
Over me like a shroud?
I’m left with one thing to do.

Dancing in circles in funny little squares
My hat falls to the floor
All kinds of people are pointing over here
The Madhatter I fear is me.

And my Hat it just said
Don’t throw me on your bed
Bad things will happen to you

but they are here and far
and it breaks my Mad heart
why is this cloud over me?

Dancing in circles in funny little squares
My hat flies up off the floor
With two blue eyes and a funny little smile
She sings to me:

“I’m so High, so High. I’m High as a kite.”

I can’t win in this game
So I think I won’t play: I tip my Mad Hat to you.
Track Name: Intermission
Intermission


Ahhh Home again.
At this juncture
I’d like to invite you
to take a moment for yourself.

At this juncture
I’d like to invite you
To take a moment for yourself
Track Name: I'll Remember You
I’ll Remember You

I remember walkin alone with you
Sun Shiny Days and underneath the deep blue moon
I remember the color of your eyes
And I remember the way you said goodbye
And I’ll remember you the rest of my life.

I remember; hold you close hold you near
Even when you weren’t close you were always very dear.
You said you loved me but that was a lie.
And I remember the way you said goodbye.
And I’ll remember you the rest of my life.

I had to go; you knew it deep down in your heart.
I think it was Europe or somewhere equally as far
And I remember the look upon and in your eyes
I remember the way you said goodbye.
And I’ll remember you the rest of my life.

I held you close all those times you held me near
And I reach out and feel nothing because your not here
I hear your voice and I see your eyes
I remember the way you said goodbye.
And I remember the way you said goodbye
And I’ll remember you the rest of my life.
Track Name: Slow Down
Slow Down

You better slow down, your doing too much
Time to say stop; enough’s enough.
You better look in the mirror
You aint getting young
Time to say stop; enough’s enough
You know one is too many, nothing never, never, be enough
Slow Down.

You got a dark side and he’s killing you
Before you know it you’ll find yourself
With nothing you can do; better slow down.
Your doing too much
One of these times it will be enough’s enough
You know one is too many, nothing never, never, be enough
Slow Down. Slow Down,
But I like it….

Do you even remember when they all called you Ghost?
Way down in the deep soo south; way down, way down in Memphis.
No one, including me, we all never thought you’d make it home
But deep down inside you pushed it
You gotta let this all go
You know one is too many, nothing never, never, be enough
Slow Down.

You better slow down, your doing too much
Time to say stop; enough’s enough.
You better look in the mirror
You aint getting young
On of these dark times you won’t have no luck.
You know one is too many, nothing never, never, be enough
Slow Down, Slow Down.

Slow Down, Slow Down, Slow Down…
Track Name: Tunnel Of Love
Tunnel Of Love

Look me in the eye; look me in the eyes before I go down
Look me in the eye; look me in the eyes, before I go down
Cuz a cat like me, sure do love to fool around

Gonna hit that landing strip gonna get on board gonna take off.
Gonna hit that landing strip gonna get on board gonna take off
Baby when we land; you & me sure gonna get off.

I never thought that I could love you
In the ways that you think and move
But something happened and it all changed
I don’t know what but I aint the same

You gotta let it all go
You gotta let it all hang
Let it all go
Bump a Grind: Tunnel of Love

Come go for a ride; climb on board hold on tight
Come go for a ride; climb on board hold on tight
In the tunnel of love that’s how this ride goes bump and grind
Love, Love, Love
Track Name: Come Back To Me
Come Back To Me

Woman please tell me
Why you went away
You left me here standing
All so lonely
But I still want you
And I still need you
Come home to me.

Once we were a couple
Together we were happy
Now that we are separate
It’s just you and me
But I still need you
And I still love you
Come home to me

Woman please help me
So I can see
All those beautiful memories
Of just you and me
But I still love you
And I still need you
Come home to me
Come home to me
Come home to me

Come back (yes to me)
Come back (yes to me)
Come back to me
Track Name: Madness
Madness

I love you Mojo
