Ξανά στα ερπετά, με ένα συναρπαστικό, progressive προσανατολισμών κομμάτι των Bevis Frond, “οχήματος” του Βρετανού νεο-ψυχεδελικού singer songwriter Nick Saloman. Από το ομώνυμο άλμπουμ του 2002 – πρόταση του stcigar.
Back to the serpents, with this fascinating, progressive-oriented piece by Bevis Frond, a “vehicle” of British neo-psychedelic singer songwriter Nick Saloman.
From the 2002 album by the same name – a stcigar’s proposal.
❝ 4 o’clock this morning
I was woken from a dream
In which my bones were reassembled
In a minor league museum
And blaze children with their worksheets
Had to find out who I was back then
When I used to walk the earth
Churning out my finely crafted songs
And sloping to the bathroom
Through the darkness of the landing
I sat down to have a piss
‘Cause it was easier than standing
And imagined my exhibit being
Crated up for storage in an
Airtight basement room
Archived where it probably belongs
I look at you and fail to understand
Just what it is that gives you wealth and fame
When so many people seem to have exactly what you’ve got
But somehow it never quite works out the same
Is it luck? Is it friends?
Or is it something more obvious that I can’t see?
One thing I’m really certain about
It isn’t aimed at guys like me
Is it only me that thinks you’re an obnoxious poser?
Or does everyone else think so too?
Strutting around like you’re gods gift to the world
While you disciples form a disorderly queue
Well, let me play devils advocate for a moment
And publicly state that you are scum
I can tell from the howls of disapproval
That I’m in a minority of one, yeah
And now I’m through with avuncular diplomacy
I’ve stopped saying “I think I need to hear some more”
‘Cause this stuff is rubbish, I can’t stand it that’s that
And I don’t care if I sound like a dinosaur
I never thought I’d come across like my dad
When I played my Ackles, my love and my shy limbs
All I can say, is I suddenly looking in the mirror
And I found I’d turned into him ❞
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 music!
* 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!
