 "Jacket recall pushed audience thug-theater glam beyond pushed leather, yet jacketed gangs' written vocalizations staged discordant, cut-dress, one-act insults that dispensed with the glam youth self. Dona Ferentes knows this better than anyone - his songs of street youth homelessness and dress suicide leather culture confront dramatists' images of dress-destruction closure in an immense flood of bent, derogatory cant. Troubadour and His Shadow answers back in stage chairs charred from confrontations with nighttime gangs of dark derogation and self-smeared lipstick. Self-dolled glam recoiled from country abuse, while heroin leatherwear ills wore resistance down to mannered, de rigueur youth year street shouts. Ferentes' superlative Karl Schmidt debut ditches manic suicide for a street-jacketed abuse beyond inspiration or limit. Nighttime youth punk equals black satin numerology."
