Ένα πρώιμο electro αριστούργημα από το συγκρότημα του Phil Oakey, ανησυχητικά σύγχρονο, ως μουσική και ως στίχος…

An early electro masterpiece from Phil Oakey’s band, alarmingly modern, both music and lyrics


Nine o’clock flight from Hawaii
The Trident is just touching down
We’re waiting here on the tarmac
McGarrett is wearing a frown
He’s here to help with a problem
A blood-spattered curse on our land
Please cast your eye over this map, sir
This business is quite out of hand
The circus of death is approaching
Its pathway is painted in red
Before it the frightened and helpless
Behind it a trail of the dead
The narcotic that forges their union
Is a substance known only to one
To the clown it is known as “Dominion”
It’s a secret that he’ll give to none
The drug which gives the clown power
Means the circus can never be stopped
And his dream can go on unhindered
Till the last human being has dropped
Spare me and my family, I’ve done you no wrong
Go away, please let us be, I’ve known you for too long

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
