In 2011 Baby Scream released its 8th album, Secret Place, and Juan Pablo Mazzola, the leader, decided to clean the closet and the shelves. That's how the album Lost Balloons was born, a compilation of old recordings, demos, cover versions and songs that didn't make the final tracklist of other releases. The album contains 17 tracks and the band and the label decided to give it away as a free download.
Lost Balloons contains original songs as well as covers of The Ramones, T-Rex, The Replacements, Tony Orlando, The Electric Prunes and John Lennon.
It also includes the songs "Reality" and "Song For A Soldier", originally written by Marc Bolan, (glam rock superstar, singer of the band T-Rex, dead in 1977) and they have an unusual story (as it usually happens around Baby Scream). A collector from Norway called Iojan Bolgard bought many reel tapes and acetates that originally belonged to Marc Bolan and discovered two new, unknown songs written by Bolan that were never released, "Reality" and "Song For A Soldier", songs of protest about the Vietnam war. By chance Juan Pablo Mazzola, a huge Marc Bolan/ T-Rex fan himself, came across Bolgard.
Juan went to his home in Norway and the collector played the songs for him and offered him to record new Baby Scream versions of them.
Baby Scream was never able to overcome the legal obstacles to release the songs commercially, in fact those songs are officially unknown.
There's no record of them as "written by Marc Bolan" in any legal form, so, not knowing what to do with them and existing in legal limbo, they were included on Lost Balloons.
