Η περίσταση απαιτεί μια παρένθεση στο αφιέρωμα “Mουσική για Φαντάσματα”. Είναι το κλασικό των κλασικών από το In The Court Of The Crimson King, άλμπουμ – ντεμπούτο των King Crimson.

The occasion demands a short interval from the “Music For Ghosts” tribute. It is the classic of the classics from In The Court Of The Crimson King, King Crimson’s debut album.

❝ A-one, two, three, four
Two, two, three
Cat’s foot, iron claw
Neurosurgeons scream for more
Paranoia’s poison door
21st century schizoid man
Blood rack, barbed wire
Politicians funeral pyre
Innocents raped with napalm fire
21st century schizoid man
Death seed, blind man’s greed
Poets starving, children bleed
Nothing he’s got, he really needs
21st century schizoid man ❞

* 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!
