Killer was a Finish band fronted by an amazing female vocalist named Siiri Nordin. They never really made it here in the States but I alway thought that they had a great sound. In case you are not familiar with them, let me introduce you. Liar is from Killer’s second album, Sure You Know How To Drive This Thing. See what you think….
Did you like it? As alway, I am very interested in hearing your opinion….
I’m sad to report that the band broke up in 2005 without producing any further albums.
So…..while we are on the subject of lying, I would like to dedicate this post to Mitt Romney. If you don’t get the connection watch this video.
To quote Neil Young: “I never knew a man could tell so many lies, he had a different story for every set of eyes. How can he remember who he’s talking to? Cause I know it ain’t me, and I hope it isn’t you.”
Since I featured Hocus Pocus as our Long Song Tuesday post for this week, let continue the international flavor.
This is yet another album that I bought back in college without hearing any of the music in advance. This time, I bought the album based on the album title “Moroccan Roll” which I thought was a brilliant play on “More Rock and Roll”.
As I found out more about the group Les Variations I discovered that although they we considered to be a French group, three of their original four members were actually from Morocco so I think the title actually had a different meaning for them than it did for me 🙂 Let’s listen to the title song from the Moroccan Roll album (their first album on Buddah, an American record label).
I did not follow the band after my purchase of Moroccan Roll but enjoyed the title song as I hope you did as well. Let me know what you think.
Osibisa – Criss-crossing rhythms that explode with happiness
As described on the Osibisa website, the band was formed in London in 1969. Three of its members were from Ghana and three were from the Caribbean. The group played a huge role in increasing awareness of African music.
I bought the first Osibisa album in college without ever hearing their music. Why would I do such a thing? I did it strictly based on the cover artwork which was absolutely striking. Take a look for yourself.
To my surprise, I loved the Osibisa music as much as I loved the album cover Let’s listen to Dawn, the first song from the album.
I hope you enjoyed their music as much as I did. It truly does “explode with happiness”!
