UNFINISHED DOCUMENTARY, STATE OF GRACE | Mid-1970s
Interviewee: ENRIQUE BRAVOCADO
When Zongo and I first got our thing together out at Milakale, it was paradise, man. It took a lot of elbow grease to clean up the property, but once all the heads starting showing up and pitching in, it went really quickly.
And that house, don’t ask me how, but we hardly had to do anything to the big house. It was like it had been waiting for us. The other houses on the property were pretty much tear downs, though. To tell the truth, they probably weren’t all that much to start with.
Luckily, Charlie knew some guy that had a contract to dismantle the buildings at one of the old pineapple plantations not too far away. There was a lot of good salvage: lumber, windows, the works. We just had to work out a way to get it all to Milakale.
