This reminds me of Wynton Marsalis doing his PBS radio jazz program in which he has school kids clap to keep keep time, while his band play. Freaking cool, except when his throws them a curve ball and does 9/8 time (ala Brubek).

Funny, I agree with him about Brexit, but think his band is one of the worst bands in musical history.

LOL, so we can't agree on this. 

 
Also LOL....I agree with redmachine on Elbow's take on Brexit and I also like the band! So I agree with both of you and disagree with both of you.  {#Group-hug}

Just as long as I'm allowed to openly state my opinion, and others can express theirs, without censorship.  PEACE & LONG LIVE RP!!

agreed, it's a great tune, although my "interpretation" of the song K2 being about Brexit is only a guess....what do you think it's about?

as far as the president I must have reacted to the news of his approval rating dropping even more...whatever, he'll be gone soon enough.



 
Garvey has come out and said the song is about Brexit and how nationalism is destroying GB and the US.  The lyrics (at least the ones that I can decipher) confirm this:  “I’m from a land with an island status – everyone hates us.”

Now, can we get Firebrand and Angel from this album on Radio Paradise?  That song is like a musical magic trick.

None of that has anything to do with a rather nice song.  Regardless your feelings or opinion on Brexit or Trump. I am not even sure that is what this song was intended to be about.

It's a Brexit poem, but like you said...my American self doesn't quite get it.  K2 being the "2nd highest peak" would be the "minority" vote to remain in the EU (i.e. 48% stay vs 52% leave) - great poetry I guess!

For the 45th president (see...I can't say that guy's name....I call him chump instead) - I think the poem would include reference to "Space Mountain" in Disney World, which I recall was the 2nd highest peak in the entire FLAT state of Florida coming in at 97 feet.  But I'm no poet and I know it!  I can say LONG LIVE RP for playing this wonderful music!

Huh?

Lemme see.... passsion8 is a "stoner"?

Or is it that regular non-artistic, unimaginative people cannot imagine creativity and originality without an artificial boost?

Like the song on the first listen.

Vocals remind me a lot of Peter Gabriel, with a beat
