about

Black Market Aftermath announce their debut album “Come Naked”.

“Come Naked” is a unique and balanced blend of 70s Rock, 90s Grunge, Electronic influences and Folk ballads. The Black Market Aftermath debut album is a solid bridge between Classic Rock and Contemporary Experimentation.

The band “Black Market Aftermath” sprouted from the mind of Francesco D’Andrea, professional Film and TV Composer in the daytime, guitarist and songwriter at night, and his collaboration with Walter Marini, exceptional singer, songwriter and ex roadie.

Before founding his current project with Black Market Aftermath, Francesco D’Andrea has worked on TV series, promo music and movie soundtracks through which his music has been featured in many award winning shows and movies, such as “Dr. House”, “The Big Bang Theory,” “Mad Men”, “Spaghetti Story”, “Glee”, “How I met Your Mother” and many more.

Walter and Francesco met for the first time in 2009 in Rome, playing in pubs and small venues, and then decided to work together to craft their first rock album. Besides the distance that separates the two at the moment, they funded the Black Market Aftermath, and started to work remotely, using internet to shrink in some way the distance that separates them.

“Come Naked” is largely based on a body of works (recordings and lyrics) that Francesco had produced in the last year, and featuring the amazing vocals of Walter Marini together with one song written by himself.

Francesco started recording anything that came into his mind, in his home studio and in complete freedom, and then selected some ideas to be sent to Walter. During the whole production process, they only met for one week, to record the vocals together in Rome. Francesco played and recorded all the instruments alone in his home recording room, and many of the tools, instruments and gear were purchased especially to make “Come Naked” possible. The result of many months of free experimentation is a blend of influences that are not commonly seen together in a rock album, and yet feel like different stains on a same picture.

“Come Naked” is an album that reflects the previous work experiences of Francesco as a music Composer for pictures, and where different music genres and influences are used to tell different nuances of the same story.

Black Market Aftermath are the result of the pure joy to make music, with the mind unleashed from strict categories, and yet a deep love for classic rock as a constant. The band has just finished his first album, and is now looking to expand their lineup, and to begin their first tour.

---

For those who might be wondering, the boxer punching hard the other one in the album cover is Francesco's grandfather, who was a professional and very good boxer, and to whom this album is dedicated.

We dedicate this album to everyone out there trying to make, like us, some good records.

We also want to thank some magnificent people that helped us to make this record. We'll always be thankful for your help and support. Our thanks and special gratitude go to:

Emilia Sibilla, Giovanni "Johndan" D'Andrea, Norma Angiolillo, Rossella D'Andrea, Ciro De Caro, Walter's family, PJ. You were all crucial to the making of this album, and thus we love you!

Thanks also to Charles Bukowski and Jimi Hendrix, endless sources of inspirations in style, tone and attitude.

And last, but not least: This album was made possible by an enormous, gigantic, silly, inadvisable amount of cups of coffee!

We hope you'll like it, and if you do, please spread our music to your friends!

Thank you!

The Black Market Aftermath.

Track Name: Cities Under Guns
Take
a seat and watch me now
I am your god
your sins I won't make right

make
your move and let me sleep
you're pushing through time
like a needle deep

I've caught you reading shadows
on your palms
your brain like cities falling
under guns

I don't give a darnedest damn
I'll watch you become ash
and I won't care

ask your clock why, beg for rain
write your poem now, and for once
have yourself

I've caught you reading shadows
on your palms
your brain like cities falling
under guns

I don't need no viral compassion
just to please
a taste of bitter tears like candies
with-out feel

paint
my wish with your desire
I can't escape from me
I love both lives

rage
won't help you, not this time
swans they're drown in cluttered water
we call pride

I've caught you reading shadows
on your palms
your brain like cities falling
under guns.
Track Name: Howling
Howling the wind comes
as my sore guts burn
reminding me it's time to awake from a sleepless night

And I've seen all my enemies
but my hate has drained to a yawn
should I kill them before I forget why I'm here to fight?

And I don't know how long I would keep calm
just by twisting dreams to past
when it's laughing at my mistakes that's keeping me alive

I've been shooting my thoughts to the moon sight
I've been searching fears to break down
but none of this, nothing gets me fine

Then I feel like I'm slipping through time
And I'm riding all the wrong miles
And I feel I'm howling my eyes out
And lighting all the wrong signs

Backwash is cold now
as my think is moving prowl
and the night grins as tough as hell as I'm going down

And preaching the lie turned to safe path
bewildered the gaze through fraud of life
I'm standing as tough as I can
to unlearn to fight

I was walking in pools full of people
with no eyes that I could look at
Now I'm calm when I'm wrong and I'm caged when I'm doing right

And I feel like I'm slipping through time
I'm riding all the wrong miles
And I'm here to hold your fears tight
But I'm lost and I'm glooming inside

As we drip our dreams through
ceilings made of time, - it doesn't
feel like we were here now
but our shadows still spread out, - and I'm
testing memory poisons now -
I'm trenching out from sight,
I'm pissing spleen at dusk but I'm doing fine
I'm so fine…lying…dying….fine…
Track Name: She
She's sketching a smile
she's happy sometime
when walking home

her dreams and fears
both lost in the horizon

the past catching up
but she's leaning to allow
and leave behind

memories, like sand,
they sink you as you escape them

And I start to be afraid all the sun
wouldn't be enough to dry
all she has to sweat

what the needle has brought in
its obvious the time wouldn't heal
but you can be naked under the rain
or shelter somewhere

she's now all one with the shadows
with whom she's painting her thoughts
with back and with grey
as if yellow and white had something wrong

Save yourself
don't let rivers of endless fear
drag yourself like rag
get yourself away from here

have you seen how all the guilt and the dreadful
is set to spread
what you blame is what you'll become
so you'd better warn yourself

She dreams every night
a thousands of lives...
all those she can't live

and the only she could
it's tough and it's real
so she can't….deal

she wakes up and makes up
the man from the dreams
so that he can't leave

since dad is not there
she's gathering all breath
in one single scream
Track Name: Beside You
Don't....try to understand me
You're...just wasting your time
Smile... i m tryin to justify myself
Stay away from me...and live your life

All years you've lost close to me
wrinkles...that are now around your eyes
Are like scratches... on my heart now
if i could...I'd take all your pain in me

there's is no longer that shining light were in your eyes
turns it off when the house of cards collapsed down '
I cheated and I put into play both our lives
I feel a deafening silence, i feel it around me now...

You can look beside you
She'll always to remember....what we've been togheter

Hold her close beside you
She s just the perfect picture of
All love we shared

You can look beside you
She will stay with you forever
as the gift for stolen life and wasted years


you struggled with love and grief
against a cruel and invisible enemy
You knew that something was wrong with me
and I stole your soul like a thief

like a flower that withers and slowly dies
I stopped to feed and satisfy our love
was how to understand that I never won
you were me, i chase you away with my lies

our life was like a ship
safe sailing quietly in his sea
now floating in the dark
groping to find relief

it is in the human being
or maybe just in mine
look for something to
feel something alive inside

when you are so lost and cold
head in between your knees
you feel top lonely and old
you threw all away on a him
Track Name: Again
Empty pages of my soul
get spotted with black ink I draw

and I've seen my thoughts
like raining blades...
an un-sheltered mind
the body obeys...

Take me into you
for me to finally wait
and fall asleep…

believe my words
pain is true as rain,
as me, today…

tonight I'm pain
and I wish I'd love
I'd love again…

I fear to choose
a single path
through the endless garden of regrets

the boy who wants to be a man
the man who wants him child again

take me there
where I'm one
with the thoughts and choice I make

Take me into you
for me to finally wait
and fall asleep…

tonight I'm pain
but I'm here to stay
to fight my thoughts and fears
and I'll love again…
and I'll love again…
Track Name: Tonight
The higher we fly off
the sooner we'll need our feet on the ground

The more we want freedom
the more we release, the more we're alone

In my memories
I am dragging you to me

And in my memories
we are blood and lust

Tonight I'll burn my memories
tonight I'm all of my enemies
tonight….

I am all dressed with idiosyncrasies
we're all the same, all…but the one I see?
are we some sense, or just a bladder filled?
I'm leaving somewhere, or I'm here to be?

Tonight…

The higher we'll fly off
the stronger our hands clench through the sun

And whatever will
we'll be as one, and dream

and if dark will reach
we'll beam our smile and live
Track Name: Stone
Never feared to hide behind the sun
but there's a way to catch rays and light

there's no reason holding your feelings away
and the falling shades now
smile 'cause I'm burning to love you.

What we'll live is less
than dreams can draw
but all the things end so
I've build a stone

that will keep these feelings
inside for you
and as the last nights are shaking
on mornings I'll still be there

And now I've faith again
I never felt this way so long
And what a rave when I'm feeling
way more than I hoped

I'm smiling to see you smiling
I see my soul at home
I'm happy I had you before
we've gone.

The rain will drop forever
to recall
how we held our hands strong
through the storm

And the way that we'll feel
when we reach at the dawn…
that we grew old together
and we loved.
Track Name: Sharp Thin Blade
When you walk in and talk
I can see time…melting under the shades...

and you fumble 'bout love like a mad cat
throw your jokes like a sharp thin blade

ohhh are you trying to kill me babe?
ohhh with your lips so tight
ohhh are you trying to steal my breath
ohhh when you dance like fire

and I can barely look at your silky hair
without having to cry my babe
I could spin this world in its reverse
just to have you for once by my side

ohhh are you trying to kill me babe?
ohhh with those lips like fire…
ohhh are you trying to steal my faith
I shall be cursed, you're my evil's prank

when you tear off my clothes
and you talk bad
I am glad I gave up to sin
you're a bliss and a curse can't escape from
I'm already drunk of you, damn…

when you walk in and talk I foresee a mess…
I can see time melting under the shades
when you fumble on love like a mad cat

ohhh are you trying to hit me babe?
ohhh I'm just trying to live
ohhh are you trying to steal my breath
ohhh you're my evil on earth

ohhh are you trying to kill me babe?
ohhh with your lips so tight
ohhh are you trying to steal my breath
ohhh when you dance like fire
Track Name: Miss You
I will miss you on a very sunny day
the clouds they will cry and the sun

will feel cold when he'll figure your pale lips
are too late to warm

And I will look for you through words, and notes, and rhymes
until the hourglass is tired
and when your golden smile is needed somewhere else
I'll wave it goodbye

But until that day I'll love you...
But until that day I'll kiss you…

Had a dream where I was dreaming of you old
three pines and a lake of salt
had a dream of you while singing to this song
and jumping around

And in the dream you said I love you...
And until we dream I'll kiss you…

wake me up before you leave
somehow all we need is just be here and now
take my hand and run until we've ground
cause we're dreams to feed the sun
and when we love is what will make them real

But until that day I'll love you...
But until that day I'll kiss you…

And all this time we're given
is not enough to say goodbye
Do not let time past through your hands
but when it does just smile

And I will look for you through words, and notes, and rhymes
until the hourglass is tired
and when your golden smile is needed somewhere else
I'll wave it goodbye

But until that day I'll love you...
But until that day I'll kiss you…

But until that day I'll love you...
But until that day I'll kiss you…
Track Name: Consequences
Consequences dry my
faith
that what I need is
what I want?

How we dream and how we dare
to walk the road with no one's load
hanging our thoughts
troubling our way home?

The years they rush and we complain
to stop the time we need to snatch
and breathe in now
what we'd bring to grave

And yet I see disgrace
to think of me as one, who strays...
with no bonds here to stay
with no bonds here to stay…

Consequences guide my
thoughts

that what I want is walk the road
within someone's thoughts
soothing my back home.
Track Name: Dog Dreams
say...the sky is too pale,
and dog's dreams work better
then flowers and rain.
say…

flames
burning your faith
in what seemed to matter
they're now lighting your rage

I don't have much to say
but want to make you
smile, run, let yourself cry
as birds they run to settle
but will just leave and fly again

there's a flat sound and silence
bursting out loud hey hey...

now you see we are proud
to be round
with our rules to be shared

when if fact
I'm done, I'm glad, I'm dumb
like an animal caged

didn't seem like much
still young…
with some dreams to be traded

when we spent all the nights
hiding under the waves
and keeping shut the sails
of what we thought to be saved

stay awake
no faults no shame
carry on, carry on
maze, you're
looking for a way
carry on, carry on

smile, run, let yourself cry
as birds they run to settle
but will just leave and fly again

hear a flat sound and silence
bursting out loud...

everything we have, and nothing
always early enough to die
and always too late…
always worth enough to try…

wave…dare…
slam all of your doors…make
yourself a little home
oh...you can hide in your past
or just walk and have it gone

I'm lost and
I'm drinking my thoughts
well I'm there, but not all the dreams I got, while I…

take time
to forget the right lines
to regret to be wise and just live again

fuck time and denying the sun
we'll be blind
if you don't reach out to…

smile, run, let yourself cry
as birds they run to settle
but will just leave and fly again

there's a flat sound and silence
bursting out loud…
Track Name: Mothership
Mother will you try to mend your soar
no one seems to find his way to love

Mother ship is sunk and there's no shore
that seems like home
words we used to dream are sold in stores
you can't afford

Mother they will dress our fears with gold
that we don't own
will you take them down or buy some more?
wouldn't dare

Mother town sleeps now the rain has gone
corners of your eyes they're wet once more
won't you fall?

Shake all those fears off your head
and blaze like storm... it's been too long...

When you will make to forgive your Self from soul
to live once more…
Track Name: Burning in Waters, Drowning in Flames
I won't stare at the clouds of today
cause I'm gone before they're leaving
packed my thoughts tied them pretty clenched
so this time they won't show in my head

and all I ever was I've not been there yet
and wherever I'm going now that's ok

talk to all my friends that I never had
tell my name them and ask how they're feeling
and sorry for leaving you alone right there
did I mention that I wouldn't leave?

but all I ever was has not been there
and wherever you'll go I'll be changed
and wherever you'll go I'll be changed

sorry for painting our names without shades
all the days that we had to live
now they're burning in waters and drowning in flames
did I was wrong, or wrong was in me?

and all I ever was, has not been there
and wherever you'll go I'll be changed
and wherever you'll go I'll be changed
Track Name: Quit
Quit, quit, I swear I'll quit!
the needle's down…
I'm mad enough to live with beasts
I'm highly strung, they're barely calm

Shit, shit, another hit
it's coming down
it got me mad it got me dull
it burnt the confidence all at once

And I see you now,
a glint and howl
of shame,

you'll come here now
to reach the time I saved...

Beat, beat, that guitar deep
unleash noise, and scream your heart out
and don't save any voice cause
the last scream, you better be loud

As I split, lickety split,
from the court and trial
consequences are already there
as the final sip before I dry out

Had myself the final denial, took my grave and set it on fire
as I lit my cigarette and make it the last
the wind makes it short, the wind makes it fast.

I see you now,
as a howl of shame

I'm done by now
to reach the time I saved…
oohhh…
Track Name: Come Naked
Come here and see what they mean when
they say I drove my head out bad

Stay here and I will be clear about I'm no man
but I've got my strain

Can I be what I need for myself or
Seek a place where I feel I don't feel at all….
And are maybe those words that you think true?
That I might need a…

"Come naked" , said the shrink,
"it won't hurt you, let me in…."
and I saw then a blaze, and I chased it, and I found
it was…me.

"You see", said the shrink
"he's still there, when you need"
as I poured the first drops…they were hot….they were lots….
on my knees.

But "Hey! Wait!", then I said,
"There's no child and no man",
"all I see is my mind and the things that I've done
with my hands"

Walked the door of my
thoughts
Shut the door on his
words
as the child that was me….now has gone

Come here and see what they mean when
they say I drove my head so bad

Stay here and I will be clear about I'm no man
but I've got my strain

Can I be what I need for myself or
Seek a place where I feel I don't feel at all….
And are maybe those words that you think true?
That I might need a shrink.
Track Name: Wolves
I am feeling
burning down
wolves have found me
came somehow

would you dance this
dance it loud
oh my baby
calm me down

I can I hold you
feel you burn like hell
I will lay you
while you drip your whelming hair

wolves have found me,
I could feed them waste...
but my memories
are a low ceiling to my head

all in all it's a jam of thoughts
all I hear is a mess of sounds
all in all it's a crowded world
burning down...

I am feeling
burning down
wolves have found me
came somehow

wolves have found me,
I could feed them waste...
but my memories,
are a low ceiling to my head

all in all it's a jam of thoughts
all I hear is a mess of sounds
all in all it's a crowded world
burning down...
Track Name: Pretty Rad
Honey, all the money we saved
I'm gonna get a gun to kill some time…
Or I could shoot it twice in my face,
would you help me on the second fire?

I will drink some poison
and dance all night
drown into the river set myself to fire

when the death will show up
I'll be alright
And she will be ashamed 'cause I'm pretty rad

find me 'cross the river
grab my bones to feel 'em
give me a chance to be a man

or I will hang me now
hassle you somehow
jump under a train
or die in a big way….'cause I'm rad

I will drink some poison
and dance all night
drown into the river set myself to fire

when the death will show up
I'll be alright
And she will be ashamed 'cause I'm pretty rad

will you find me 'cross the river
grab my bones to feel 'em
give me a chance - to be a man

or I will hang me now
hassle you somehow
jump under a train
or die in a big way….'cause I'm rad

Rolling over, bending over
hang in over all
until I save my mind
And get things fine

Let me drive until the road is clear
then I will preach - and fear the sober God
and pour him scotch

Telling him the names of all
religions we made
the wars that we make
and lies that we ate

Rolling over, bending over
all this and that
I should hang me right now
but fuck, I'm pretty rad!

I'll drink poison
and dance all night
drown into the river set myself to fire

when the death will show up
I'll be alright
And she will be ashamed 'cause I'm pretty rad

Find me 'cross the river
grab my bones to feel 'em
give me a chance - to be a man

or I will hang me now
hassle you somehow
jump under a train
or die in a big way….'cause I'm rad.
Track Name: Room 1
Do I remember stories
when I was child you told me?
will I remember colors
that once I saw on your face?
and it was bright,
and I wouldn't mind time…
cause I wouldn't know how it goes much too fast…

Never been so good with words
I'd never go much wrong than...
I emptied so many jars of white
that black came to my mind then

by the time you read this I'll be a man
I'll lead somewhere to unmake your regrets
by the time I sing this song would you
would tell me growing ain't so bad

and the sky was bright
of my lonely glare
and my cardboard plays
things other define I'm trying to understand

the room is crawling with the stillness
lights oh…make child's dreams better
do I still remember how to feel them
would you stick around until I make them…

by the time you read this I'll be a man
I'll lead somewhere to unmake your regrets
by the time I sing this song would you
would tell me growing it ain't so bad

now I am trying make things right…
now I'm trying…
Track Name: Baritone
I've been a lonely boy
shelve your problems, you're so proud.

I'm pouring rain inside
just to tame my mind.

why don't you come around
why don't we start again from ground?

why don't you sip your plain pain
all your wit spills sour grapes
why don't you start again from ground?

and you now walk like that
with your baritone voice as a mask
but I remember when
we'd just dream and talk like friends

strip the world down
leave it bleeding on its own
we don't need no crown,
understand: we're time.

and these days they run away
all we need's to share

see, I've talked enough
take this bitter rants as the words I say last.
