Καταιγιστικά πυρά από τους Carter USM, σ’ ένα τραγούδι από το άλμπουμ – ντεμπούτο τους 101 Damnations του 1989. Μια σπουδαία πρόταση του stcigar.

Firestorm from Carter USM, on a song from their debut album 101 Damnations released in 1989. A great proposal from stcigar.


❝ To the north of Kathmandu
There’s tiny children sniffing glue
Like losers in a Michael Winner script
It’s got a BMX certificate
And somewhere in the opening shots
By the wino in the cardboard box
A madman cornered by police
Puts a Smith and Wesson between his teeth
And meanwhile in the butcher’s shop
Another turkey gets the chop
Outside there’s a blazing sun
It’s a perfect day to drop the bomb
Everybody say war
Everybody say radiation ❞


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!
