Ένα μίνιμαλ κομψοτέχνημα από το άλμπουμ Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy – δείγμα μιας εποχής κατά την οποία ο Brian Eno σχεδίαζε τη μουσική του μέλλοντος.

A minimal masterpiece from the album Taking Tiger Mountain By Strategy – a token of an era during which Brian Eno was designing the music of the future.


❝ Monica sighed
Rolled on her side
She was so impressed that she just surrendered
She was moved by his wheels
She was just up from wales
He was fueled by her coals and he was coming to catch her
Lose the sense of time
Nail down the blinds
And in the succulent dark there’s a sense of ending
Joking aside
The mechanical bride
Has fallen prey to the great pretender.
Let me just point out discreetly
Though you never learn
All those tawdry late night weepies
I could make you weep more cheaply
As the empty moon enamels
Monica with spoons and candles
Bangs around without the light on
Furniture to get it right on
Settled in a homely fish pool
Hung with little eels
Often thinks that travel widens
‘stay at home, the trout obliges’
Monica sighed
Rolled on to her side
She was so impressed that she just surrendered.


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], 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!
