Mostly Other People Do the Killing: Blue

Read "Blue" reviewed by Maurizio Comandini

Una domanda sorge spontanea: ma con questo Blue cosa volevano dimostrare? Il gruppo di Moppa Elliott si è scelto da subito un nome molto intrigante, Mostly Other People Do the Killing, che di sicuro non li fa passare inosservati.
