The album contains the immortal hits “Slave”, “Bastard Angel”, “I Walk the (Dead)Line”. No concert is possible without those beloved songs. And even “Ragged Bed” and “No Kisses on the Mouth” are still possible to hear live from time to time.
“It is rather a post-modern, but innovative, mixture of Acoustic Pop, Folk, Rock’n’Roll and Western, somehow anchored in Nick Cave’s music or in Ennio Morricone’s soundtracks, all veiled in a romantic and bizarre dimension!” wrote the critics (of the kogaionon.com) back then. “Armageddon Gigolo was a revolution and lead thousands of music lovers into their nihilistic temptation, bringing passion and sweet pain into our lives.
Let’s remember what Simone said about the album himself right after it was released in 2006:
I’m very satisfied about it…we worked hard…for a long time…i think it’s my best album ’til now…. […] “It represents the suicide mission of a lover. Me, you, every person in this world condmend to love. To need sex, flesh, cum. Liquid. Sex is armageddon. Passions are armageddon. The end of our liberty. […] ….it grew day after day. It grew with me… and inside the people who played in it. My first goal is to be honest with myself. Spiritual Front represnts me. I sing bout mylife. “AG” is what i am… what I was during that period. It’s real music for real people.
