Go Ask Alice is the solo project of Italian musician Matteo Spinazzé. Perfection is terrible is the first self-produced EP that features Curzio Ferri playing drums and Andrea Oggiano with his acoustic guitar. Full streaming is available below.
Perfection is terrible is the first verse of Sylvia Plath’s poem “The Munich Mannequins”.
“Perfection” here is completeness, closure, inability to evolve and reborn, perfection is death.
Perfection is indeed terrible, can’t have a child, just as Plath’s Munich Mannequins, cold marble statues, beautiful and perfect, frozen with us in a never ending present, the immense futureless present of the “capitalist realism”: the end of history.
