“Sod the wine, I want to suck on the writing. This man White is an instinctive writer, bloody rare to find one who actually pulls it off, as in still gets a meaning across with concision. Sharp arbitrage of speed and risk, closest thing I can think of to Cicero’s ‘motus continuum animi.’

Probably takes a drink or two to connect like that: he literally paints his senses on the page.”

So who's a happy winemaker this Xmess?  Maynard James Keenan gets rockin' with some brand new retro oak at his Caduceus winery up on Mingus Mountain in Jerome Arizona. And the names of these Indigo Children? Naga, Anubis and Oneste. He's bringing A Perfect Circle here at the end of summer - read vintage - for the Soundwave Festival tour.
