This album was recorded in a 'flow' between Christmas and New Year's Eve 2011.
For a blues-rock trio there is no way to escape Jimi's spirit. The title of the album is adapted from the track 'Machine gun' of Jimi's Band of Gypsies album.
'Blues of zo' has recorded three live takes of this track.
As each take has a different 'disquise' all three renditions come out as a returning issue on the album.

Crank up your amp, sit back, relax and enjoy!

Track Name: Where did we go wrong
Where did we go wrong?
(Blues of zo)
Better tell me pretty mama
Where did we go wrong?
I know I caused you so much pain
Tuning up another new song
Better hold on to me mama
Hold on to what you’ve got
I can see the tears in your eyes
Cheating you right on the spot
Well I know I hurt you mama
Like you’ve never been hurt before
No more questions, no more lies
You put me on your killing floor
Track Name: Watch me watch the water
Watch me watch the water
(Blues of zo)

Watch me watch the water
Waiting to cross the line
My mother she cried
My brother all he did was smile

Watch me watch the water
I never was afraid to die
The meaning of life
At least it never bothered me

I used to walk high bridges
I thought that I could fly
My eyes must have deceived me
As I came tumbling down

Watch me watch the water
It did not worry me that much
It might all end in darkness
No more strain and never awake

Watch me watch the water
Waiting to cross the line
But since I met you baby
I wanna live don’t wanna die
Track Name: Little snake drive
Little snake drive
(Blues of zo)

Walked to my car
Got in and put it in first gear
It didn’t move
Started checking out the rear
You’d better watch out baby
Watch for my little snake drive

Then I tried second
Making sure the breaks didn’t curse
It wouldn’t move
Baby even tried in reverse
If you don’t want my love
I give it to somebody else

I started again
Let out the clutch
Now it jumped forward
Began to run
We both made a U-turn
Down at the street
It even went backwards
Turn up the speed

Oh babe
Oh babe
I want your love so bad baby
Don’t you love nobody else
