One Day As A Lion
Zack de la Rocha (vocals / keyboards)
Jon Theodore (drums)
"One Day As A Lion is both a warning delivered and a promise kept."
"A defiant affirmation of the possibilities that exist in the space between kick and snare. It's a sonic reflection of the visceral tension between a picturesque fabricated cultural landscape, and the
brutal socioeconomic realities it attempts to mask. One Day As A Lion is a recorded interaction between Rage Against The Machine's Zack de la Rocha and The Mars Volta's Jon Theodore from Los Angeles, California."
"The name taken from the infamous 1970 black and white, captured by legendary Chicano photographer George Rodriguez featuring a center framed tag on a white wall in an unspecified section of Boyle Heights. It reads: 'It's better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand years as a lamb.' This record is a stripped down attempt to realize this sentiment in sound." The EP was recorded by Robert Carranza at Ocean Way Recording and mixed by Mario C at MCJ Studios.
