THE IDEA BEHIND -M.K.M.A.- ( MERRY KISS MY ASS) BEGAN AT THE END OF OCTOBER 2014 AND FINALLY WAS COMPLETED ON SEPTEMBER 2015.
THE LYRICS TALK ABOUT A PERSON WHO’S EXTREMELY BOTHERED DUE TO THE CHRISTMAS DAY. HE WOULD WANT TO STAY IN PEACE, EATING PIZZA, DRINKIN BEER, BUT HE CAN’T DO THAT BECAUSE HIS HOUSE HAS BEEN TAKEN “HOSTAGE” BY HIS RELATIVES, PEOPLE HE BARELY KNOWS THEIR NAMES. DURING THE SONG THE MAIN CHARACTER TALKS ABOUT HIS FRUSTRATION AND LISTS THESE FREELOADERS AND WHAT THEY DO, IN A SERIES OF TRAGICOMIC SITUATIONS. WITH A GRADUAL INCREASE IN SARCASM, BOTHER AND WILL TO WALK AWAY UNTIL THE CHRISTMAS DAY IS OVER.
THE SONG WAS MIXED AND MASTERED BY JOEL EVENDEN ( BB KING, ROD STEWART, ERIC CLAPTON)
A VIDEO WAS MADE AND WILL BE AVAILABLE FROM NOVEMBER 23TH 2015. IT WAS FILMED,EDITED BY ANDREA BONFANTI ( TV COOMERCIALS FOR VODAFONE, SAMSUNG, APPLE, DAINESE)
THE SONG HAS A STRONG PUNK BACKGROUND.THE SOUND MIX IS MORE FOCUSED TO A DYMANIC GROOVE, AVOIDING THE LOUDNESS WAR, GIVING ALSO A VINTAGE SOUND ( FOR EXAMPLE IN THE GUITAR SOLO).
