Pleasure Thief If the sun rays hit, hit the haystack the pieces may be found Of the broken bad luck, bad luck mirror that runs you to the ground Laughter resounds, resounds from a fire-rift awareness awakes straw by straw Life ignites and eggs, eggs fertilze The one-eyed, cylinder-shaped claw 7 years in prison The pleasure thief is crowned the demons have arisen and my hiding place is found
Fatal Hearts 08:02


Liner notes:

You walk through the storm. The sun rays hit; your golden teeth shimmer and spark. The demons have arisen, wearing a pink fluttering cape. Kitsch illustrations in hollow space.

Take me to the boat before the fire in my stomach starts. On the other side of the fence, mist like a plank. That ancient arrogant swelling. Please take my coat. The day is done; lay me down to sleep.

While the light dust particles work their way under the skin, the one-eyed, cylinder-shaped claw has caught fire. Pressure builds. My hopes and longings hit the haystack. A young voice destroys it all. A box of matches and an open mouth grinning. Laughter resounds, searching through my veins. The cause of the fire: horizon and illusion, seven years in prison, love of god, the wind and the scent.

The serpent of my subconsciousness runs you to the ground. To be human is to tremble all the way to your chin.

The flames have faded. My throat is furry and dry. My hat is on the shelf. My hiding place is found. Eggs fertilize. I am ready now.

Les Adventures de President Bongo is a unique work that will reveal itself over the next seven years, give or take, in the form of 24 LP's.
Named and shaped in loving tribute to Tintin, the fabled Belgian journalist who defined what it meant to be an adventurer in the 20th Century.

Radio Bongo Reykjavik, Iceland

This is a beauty that doesn’t ask for the opinion of the traveler, it is not participating in a dialogue that expects any answer. This beauty is whitish-yellow by fat and is of raw dolerite under the lurid turquoise coloured sky and doesn’t care about your opinions or ideas. It crawls forward busily gnawing at the cliffs and grinds it into submission. ... more
