"Turn off the Sprinklers!" Scott Keltic Knot (2012,2013) off the album "Break the Bank!" (2012) John the Baptist played by Robert "The GreenMan" Schwichtenberg

Echoing the same message as "This is a Desert," but this time much more viscerally, vaingloriously and violently, "Turn off the Sprinklers!" delves deep into the dam-nation of Christian America with a scathing panorama of unsustainable landscaping. Over El Gallo Negro's hard beats, Scott decodes the colonial symbolism of California's contradictory, contested and congested canyons. Dis-patches from the frontlines of the West's wasteful water wars portray street-level fisticuffs, the salted remains of Owens Lake, treks through California's native prickly pear and chaparral topography, hallucinations of urban-suburban hydrohell hubris, backyard gardens and waterless toilets, the rusting dead end of California car culture, and desiccated/desecrated river beds visited by an anachronistic John the Baptist.

¡Apaga tu agua, Sur de California! "Turn off the Sprinklers!"
Resonando el mensaje de "Este es un desierto," pero ahora más visceral, vanagloriosa y violentamente, "Turn off the Sprinklers!" excava muy a fondo por la tuberías, los baños y las presas del psiquis norteamericano cristiano con un panorama mordaz de los paisajes insostenibles. A través de comunicados rapeados desde las primeras líneas de las contemporáneas guerras por agua, se ven peleas callejeras, los restos salados del Lago Owens, viajes por las sierras de nopales y chaparral de California, visiones infernales del uso del agua en ambientes suburbanos y urbanos, jardines caseros y excusados sin agua, el callejón sin salida oxidante de la cultura automovilística de California, y los ríos desecados y profanados visitados por un anacrónico San Juan Bautista.
