My hero and friend from Australia, Xaq Iria, has done it again. He has a released a nine-track album of electronic kick-ass music. Xaq Iria is a musician, an artist, and one of the best guys ever. Sometimes, Bio~Blood can be frightening and disturbing, but always so absolutely beautiful and danceable. BIO-BLOOD is a solo band that was started by XAQ-IRIA as a way to heal after shocking abuse as a child which lead to him being a street kid but against all odds he fought back against those who hurt him clean up his life and became a self taught artist singer songwriter & filmography. And his journey is poured out in his art and music in such a way that you feel you know him personally, identify with him, and cheer him on to his new life. I have never met an artist so willing to open up the wounds to the whole world as a way of healing and reaching out to others to help heal them to. His music and his art are superb. God, I hate gushing. Listen to Artery. You’ll see what I mean. And the photograph accompanying this article, is one of his paintings. I am so proud to be his friend.
