Ian Brown

Fostul vocalist de la The Stone Roses va scoate pe 24 septembrie al 5-lea album din cariera lui solo, The World Is Yours. Materialul cuprinde colaborari cu Andy Rourke (The Smiths), Paul Ryder (Happy Mondays), Steve Jones si Paul Cook (Sex Pistols). Primul single care a beneficiat de un videoclip este Illegal Attacks un duet cu Sinead O'Connor (a carei voce mai apare si pe Some Folks Are Hollow), piesa cu un mesaj politic agresiv indreptat impotriva razboaielor care au avut loc in ultima perioada de timp. Se pare ca a mizat pe aceeasi reteta ca si Manu Chao. ;)

Ian Brown - Illegal Attacks (Featuring Sinead O'Connor)

So what the fuck is this UK
Gunnin’ with this US of A
In Iraq and Iran and in Afghanistan

Does not a day go by
Without the Israeli Air Force
Fail to drop it’s bombs from the sky?

How many mothers to cry?
How many sons have to die?
How many missions left to fly over Palestine?
‘Cause as a matter of facts
It’s a pact, it’s an act
These are illegal attacks
So bring the soldiers back
These are illegal attacks
It’s contracts for contacts
I’m singing concrete facts
So bring the soldiers back

What mean ya that you beat my people
What mean ya that you beat my people
And grind the faces of the poor

So tell me just how come were the Taliban
Sat burning incense in Texas
Roaming round in a Lexus
Sittin’ on six billion oil drums
Down with the Dow Jones, up on the Nasdaq
Pushed into the war zones

It’s a commercial crusade
‘Cause all the oil men get paid
And only so many soldiers come home
It’s a commando crusade
A military charade
And only so many soldiers come home

Soldiers, soldiers come home
Soldiers come home

Through all the blood and sweat
Nobody can forget
It ain’t the size of the dog in the fight
It’s the size of the fight in the dog on the day or the night
There’s no time to reflect
On the threat, the situation, the bark nor the bite
These are commercial crusades
‘Cos all the oil men get paid
These are commando crusades
Commando tactical rape
And from the streets of New York and Baghdad to Tehran and Tel Aviv
Bring forth the prophets of the Lord
From dirty bastards fillin’ pockets
With the profits of greed

These are commercial crusades
Commando tactical raids
Playin’ military charades to get paid

And who got the devils?
And who got the Lords?
Build yourself a mountain – Drink up in the fountain
Soldiers come home
Soldiers come home
Soldiers come home
Soldiers come home

What mean ya that you beat my people
What mean ya that you beat my people
And grind the faces of the poor

Vine si la mine link. Orice pentru cineva care-l pomeneste pe Manu Chao :)... In plus, te citesc de ceva vreme! Salutarile mele.

In scurta vacanta am avut parte de destul indie. Un coleg adusese ceva ''marfa'' de la Ian Brown. Imi placeau destul de mult si Stone Roses, asta avand in vedere ca Ian a mai schimbat stilul.

Ma bucur ca nu sunt singurul care-l mai asculta. Ar fi fain sa-si promoveze albumul si in Romania printr-un concert. Imi place sa visez frumos... =)

OMG!! Asta ii tipu ala care canta pe Unreal de la UNKLE, piesa care ulterior s-o numit "Be There". Cat am adorat piesa aia si cat am visat cizmele albastre ale tipei din clip... Super. Oricum nu stiam prea multe despre el. Vad k suna bine... O sa mai ascult. ;)
Ah, si ai un blog super interesant si super folositor. Felicitari! Keep it up!

Clover Shaped Screwdriver spunea...

You're too kind, but thanks. =)
Si da, asta-i tipul ala din Unreal. Daca mai vrei sa asculti si alte melodii de-ale lui poti incepe cu F.E.A.R., in caz ca n-ai chef sa o iei de la capat cu Stone Roses. ;D

Susana spunea...

ok, ms mult de tip-uri! I'll check him out someday... cand o sa am timp:D (cand o mai fi si ziua aia...):D

Nu esti singura, timpul e o problema generala pentru toata lumea. ;)
