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!

I have the album on vinyl, so it has been at least 20 years since I’ve heard this….
🙂 Their music though hasn’t aged one year! 😉
I remember listening to Hocus Pocus and my sister asking about them “They are Dutch” was my answer. “They sound like they are Martian” was her response 😉
Ah ha ha 🤣😂🤣😂.. Martian alright! Crazy (as in brilliant) music and Leer vocals in it are Martian too! I just love them! Always make me smile when I hear his extra high notes and yondel!!!! …So yeah, I get her response! 😉
There is a part where he does this very fast, high pitched “scat” of nonsense words and I think that is when she walked in….
…I guessed as much!!!! 😉 This is the part that always makes me laugh!!!!! Ingeniously done!!
