QuoteFrom Wayne: About a year ago I was asked by my good friend, Michael Ciravolo, if I would contribute lyrics and vocals to two songs on the solo album he was recording. This is a little taster for you and a brief description of the project. Mixed by Tim Palmer, who also mixed Another Fall From Grace and produced early Mission albums, God's Own Medicine and Carved In Sand, and aided and abetted by my 2nd favourite bass player, Simon Gallup, Michael's project, Beauty In Chaos, is almost complete and will be available soon. We'll let you know when. Have a listen and let Michael know what you think.
QuoteWe will continue to add sound byte samples on this page as songs are completed, along with the amazing lyrics that make up these songs. BEAUTY IN CHAOS is a musical entity that will continue forward... bringing together artists that might not normally get to create together. A remix EP, an acoustic single, and a 'PinUps' cover record have already been discussed over some red wine.BEAUTY IN CHAOS would not have been possible without these amazingly talented artists, many who will continue in the evolution of BIC.My eternal gratitude to Robin Zander (Cheap Trick), Wayne Hussey (The Mission), Tim Palmer (Tim Palmer) Ashton Nyte (The Awakening), Simon Gallup (The Cure), Al Jourgensen (Ministry), Evi Vine (Evi Vine), Michael Aston (Gene Loves Jezebel), Johnny Indovina (Human Drama), dUg Pinnick (Kings X), Pete Parada (The Offspring), Betsy Martin (Caterwaul/ Purr Machine), Marc Danzeisen (The Riverdogs), Kevin Kipnis (Kommunity FK / Purr Machine), Dirk Doucette (Gene Loves Jezebel), Pando (A Flock of Seagulls), Rudy Matchinga (Red Scare) and Tish Ciravolo (Stun Gun).I am Blessed and proud to be curator of something very special.Michael Ciravolo
QuoteMichael talks about Simon: "What can I say... simply my fav bass player of all time (well just after my wife ☺). Simply Blessed to have him on this track, such a 'Simon' bass line too!

QuoteHello Simon hereJust wanted to write a couple of lines to say how honoured I was to be involved in the "BEAUTY IN CHAOS" project . When I joined the Cure back when things were black and white I made a secret vow to myself that I wouldn't just Haw myself out ...I believed that when you are in a band you stick by that band, and don't become just a journeyman Muso to further your own Ego ...I seriously hated all those Tits from the 80,s and 90,s who used to pat each other on the back and "hang out "To me, Commitment to one band was a signal fire that you meant it.. but ...Then you Mellow !I was lucky enough to meet Michael and his lovely wife Tish and Marc (LaCorte, Schecter's EVP) in the 90's and I think my first comment to him was rather Flippant , but I was very used to people from companies coming backstage and asking us to stand in the Broom Cupboard while they held court with Robert . So here I was for the first time, where a genuinely nice bunch of people were asking me about things like missing home , how I felt how the tour had been going etc etc ( I sort of had to look over my shoulder that they weren't talking to Robert ) it just felt like a normal conversation down the pub with people I knew ). Michael has always been 100% behind getting what the band wanted in regards to guitar designs, colours shapes ,and one of my Joys in touring America was always his enthusiasm about Guitars and Guitarists ! (Michael +Tish+ beer +bar ++ Me slightly slumped talking about Johnny Thunders if you get the Idea )... SoBack to where I started ..if someone else had asked me to play , I would have probably have said no but I felt this was a special thing, and then the icing on the cake was that Wayne was singing !I could sit here and type for hours to explain what Wayne means to me, but suffice to say I think he is one of the most Underrated Rock singers of all time ! I caught up with Him last year and Drove over to see him and the Mish play, and suffice to say his stage presence and general "Rockness " was still spine tingling , just 100% spot on .He Drove over the next day and we talked for Hours and then he went off ( Back to Brazil ....Complete Bastard for having all that sunshine! )..but then he sent me tapes through of riff's that id sent him 16 years ago ...so we go back to the top ,and I lay in bed thinking ..if anything comes of it .. Perhaps a guitarist of Michael's magnitude can help us out !Simonx
