Dust Angel now has an official website that I, Madame St.Beatrice have put together. Took me some time but I persevered.
For the 5 years I’ve (Madame St. Beatrice) known Paul Cripple (guitar man) I had the knowledge of Paul’s brillant idea and desire of releasing one last REAGAN YOUTH album; a concept album based on the dearly departed, David Rubinstein better known as Dave Insurgent, Reaganomics, 80s; mainly Dave Insurgent’s life on the New York scene.
For those who follow Reagan Youth since the reformation should be fully aware of the different line ups especially the most obvious and significant, the different singers. During these years of reformation I’ve learned and witnessed Paul’s drive to prove his relevance and strive to work on new songs but apparently it seemed to me that none of the replacement members compromise hundred percentage with Paul’s idea to work on new songs until NOW.
I, Madame St. Beatrice sings and is very much in love with music and since I revolve myself in the so called music scene I’ve become involved recently in singing the new songs, co-writing and truly understanding the whole concept amongst other ideas that Paul had in store for awhile. Paul Cripple recently formed a new band called Dust Angel where I sing hard rock, metal, punk rock tunes including the new Reagan Youth songs; songs that will eventually make it onto Reagan Youth’s last album. And so far Paul and I have intensively worked on 9 out of 12 songs for this concept album; some of the songs could be heard on Soundcloud, Reverbnation, Bandcamp and MySpace, songs that we countinuously tweaked and seek to improve until they’re finally recorded; songs like “Trapped in Hell”, “Necrophilia”, “Temptress”, “Hapless Misfits”, “Idle Hands”, “In the Thirsty Hour”, “Love is the Between my Legs”,“Lucky 7” and “Crown of Thorns”. It has been six months since I took the music seriously and I have to say that I’ve learned so much and that I am willing to learn so much more; learned that it’s a process to overcome and become what you envision.
