Τα απομεινάρια του κινεζικού πυραύλου έπεσαν τελικά στον Ινδικό Ωκεανό, με την Ελλάδα σε κατάσταση ενός επιπλέον false alarm ως χώρα στην επικίνδυνη ζώνη.
Ας ακούσουμε ένα μικρό αριστούργημα μίνιμαλ τεχνοτροπίας από τους Devo και το μνημειώδες πρώτο τους άλμπουμ.
Ο Brian Eno ήταν ο παραγωγός, έχοντας κερδίσει το ρόλο από διεκδικητές όπως οι Fripp, Bowie.

The Chinese missile debris “landed” finally in the Indian Ocean, Greece not missing the opportunity for one more false alarm as a country in the dangerous zone…
Let’s listen to a little masterpiece of minimalist style from Devo’s classic debut album.
Brian Eno was the producer, having won the role from contenders such as Fripp, Bowie.


❝ Well she was walking all alone
Down the street in the alley
Her name was Sally
I never touched her, she never saw it
When she was hit by space junk
When she was hit by space junk
When she was hit by space junk
“In New York, Miami beach
Heavy metal fell in Cuba
Angola, Saudi Arabia
On Christmas eve”, said Norad
A soviet sputnik hit Africa
India, Venezuela, in Texas, Kansas
It’s falling fast Peru too
It keeps coming, it keeps coming, it keeps coming
And now I’m mad about space junk
I’m all burned out about space junk
Walk and talk about space junk
It smashed my baby’s head, space junk
And now my sally’s dead, space junk ❞



Stay Safe!
