Ένα μικρό αντίδοτο στην αθλιότητα του κυρίου Στραβελάκη και των ομοίων του, από τους αγαπημένους μου στα ‘80s Monochrome Set. Είχα την τύχη να δω το αγγλικό γκρουπ να παίζει ζωντανά στο Σπόρτινγκ, με φόντο …TV static από μια γιγαντοοθόνη. Jet Set Junta σε δυο βερσιόν, audio και video.

Here’s a song from Monochrome Set, one of my favorite English bands of the ‘80s.
I was lucky enough to even watch them playing live, with …TV static from a video wall on the background. Jet Set Junta in two versions, audio and video.

❝ Tick, tock, go the death watch beetles in él presidente’s swill
Pop, pop, goes the Cliquot magnum at the reading of the will
Hiss, hiss, goes the snakeskin wallet stuffed with Cruziero bills
Here we come, the jet set junta ]
Here we come, the jet set junta ] (Chorus)
Broom, broom, goes the armoured Cadillac through Montevideo
Rat-a-tat goes the sub-machine gun to restore the status quo
Snip, snip, go the tailor’s scissors on the suit in Saville Row
Thud, thud, goes the rubber truncheon on the Indian peon’s heel
Buzz, buzz, go the brass electrodes as the flesh begins to peel
Rattle, rattle, goes the bullet round and round the roulette wheel
Thud, thud, goes the rubber truncheon on the Indian peon’s heel
Buzz, buzz, go the brass electrodes as the flesh begins to peel
Rattle, rattle, goes the bullet round and round the roulette wheel

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song ! 😉

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, 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 sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
