Στο Μαρτιάτικο κλαμπ και ο θρυλικός ψυχεδελικός folkster Tom Rapp, singer-songwriter, ηγέτης των Pearls Before Swine. Ακούμε μια εξαιρετική επιλογή του stcigar από το τρίτο τους άλμπουμ.

Another singer-songwriter, member of the Marchean club is the legendary psychedelic folkster Tom Rapp, leader of Pearls Before Swine. We hear an excellent stigar’s proposal from their third album.


❝ Was a time
Lost on Mobius Street
With no where to go
Well the times were so low
Couldn’t find another rainbow
If you don’t want to, I don’t mind
Time is gone
When you came along
Disguised as the rain
But I know just how you felt
‘Cause no one is ever anybody else
If you don’t want to, I don’t mind
Took some time
To see your other faces
And I hated you so
It seemed to you that love and death
Were faces of the same event
If you don’t want to, I don’t mind
All at once
I was alone
But only when you were there
How could the universal song
Be coming out so wrong
But then I knew it by your eyes
Love lasts forever ’till it dies
If you don’t want to, I don’t mind ❞


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!

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!
