TWISTED WIRES & the acoustic sessions: 2011

TWISTED WIRES & the acoustic sessions...2011

This is a fantastic CD release by TESLA titled "Twisted Wires & the acoustic sessions..." This CD (12 tracks) features two brilliant brand new tracks, namely "2nd Street" & "Better Off Without You" as well as 'the older' 10 songs being a combination of the last recorded (acoustic tracks) with the former guitarist Tommy Skeoch in 2005 & acoustic remakes/versions from their catalog.

Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "Second Street" (wonderful melody, acoustic guitars & vocals), "Better Off Without You" (beautiful guitar chords, melody & vocals) & "A Lot To Lose" (incredible melody, harmonies/vocals & guitars). Great tracks include "Into The Now*", "Hang Tough", "Edison's Medicine*", "What You Give" (a slow track with great guitar finger pick-ups & vocals), "Shine Away*" (great guitar work & interesting harmonies), "I Love You*", "Changes" (great piano & guitar chords combination), "Caught In A Dream" & "Song And Emotion". On overall, Tesla (being known for their brilliant combination of acoustic & electric guitar sounds) will impress you in this CD 'Twisted Wires', a highly recommended CD listening. I was pleasantly surprised at the enjoyment I felt listening to this CD (acoustic tracks). A well deserved 5 star performance!

    Hay! Love the band! I have been to one of the concerts! I want to send a letter to Brian Wheat. It is my bible, a book that I co-created, wrote, and helped to compile (there are a lot of quotes in it). It is actually quite unlike anything else. It still escapes me just how I was able to compile this book, but to say that there were many clues left along the way by ancient and modern people. And I mean really ancient, like 6,000 to 40,000 years ago and longer, much longer. If there is anything you really need, it is described in this book, or something related to it. I was hoping that I could get a copy of this book to Brian Wheat. It is not oppressive, and to my knowledge is only a little obtrusive, but if there are no inaccuracies in it, it might not be obtrusive at all. I hope that you help me, I want to be able to inspire the band with my book and that maybe they will hold a fundraiser concert for me to help save my motherland in Garden Valley/Georgetown California. I am trying to form a school and non-for profit that will make money that will go straight into helping people through our organization, with no other uses for the money. I want this land because in this forest and pieces of motherland, in fact one land parcel away, I was able to create a series of stones, quality gemstones and even a small black diamond. I, even using wood, fire, and the stove, then later water, would not be able to create these stones, indicating that this is not a mechanical force. I used the energy of thought in a special way, Alchemy and Entity creation, Alpha and Omega, and using images was able to create these stones in the fire. I want to teach this to everyone, and I will have a school for this, also teaching Permaculture Design, the making of regenerative Food Forests using everything that has a purpose. I am aspiring for this because it is my belief that if we can create gemstones and a black diamond in the fire over a single night, we are capable of creating our own livable Earth like planets in the Universe, biologically and not technocratically, and if what the indigenous sages say is true, around the world who can teleport their bodies in space naturally, there is a way to inhabit these planets. It sounds amazing, but having studied stories of Alchemy, there are multiple people in history who were able to teleport their body in space. Jesus, Apollonius of Tyana, Easter sages written about in books, and sages of the original Egyptian priesthood who live their lives in the Siberian Taiga of Russia, The Hawaiian and South American and Mayan people. I have been studying Alchemy since 13 and even before, and was able to create these stones and black diamond when I was maybe 18 or so. I would be more than happy to teach anyone in your band how to create these stones, maybe even black diamonds. Also my school will be making raw cold pressed Sugar Pine nut oil, using wood so not to oxidize the oils with metal. I offer a lifetime seasonal supply of Sugar Pine Nut oil and bear-clover nut oil and to teach anyone in your band, crew, or family who wants to learn how to create these stones and even diamonds in the fire of a wood stove. Thank you, and joy and health to your thoughts!:

    I love you guys. I saw you here in Sacramento a few year back & it was awesome.
    Did Tesla write the song, I love you? This is a huge debate with my husband.

    Yeah your catalog is merged with “other Tesla” on Spotify. Thought you were trying a new direction for a moment (but just a moment – then sanity restored)…hoping to fly up to SF – have never seen you live, overdue by 22 years…
