Από τους βραχύβιους post – punk ήρωες των late ’70s – early ’80s, Spherical Objects, το γκρουπ του singer-songwriter Steve Solamar. Mετά από κάποιες κυκλοφορίες, η τελευταία το 1981, εξαφανίσθηκαν χωρίς σημεία ζωής.

From the short-lived post punk heroes of the late ’70s – early ’80s, Spherical Objects, the group of singer – songwriter Steve Solamar. They disappeared after a few releases, the last of them in 1981, without leaving any signs of life.


❝ Cowboys and charlatans, forever on the make
Besuited posturing prima donnas, flaunting their vaudevile veneer
Fiddling their expenses, and cooking tales for their wives
Petty villains engrossed in advancing their careers
Pillars of society, a comedian every one
Comedians every one
Well within the law, glibly bluffing and taking
Caught up in their own personas
They see through a playboy’s eye
Playing their tricks with practiced panache
Watch those cowboys faking
Bribery and champagne, spoils for their professional lies
Pillars of society, a comedian every one
Comedians every one
They earn their living easily
But they have to keep the peasants down
Imposters flashing their status, just watching their money grow
Each one’s on a short leash, just keeping in control
You cross these boys, and watch those Alsatians go
Pillars of society, a comedian every one
Comedians every one



Stay Safe!
