Americana by The Offspring PDF

Очередная книга для любителей поиграть на нервах у родителей, для девочек во дворе, и так просто. . для себя. ..
Представлять вам группу The Offspring я не стану - нет смысла. У меня даже мысли в голову не пробираются о том, что кто-то может не знать этих музыкантов и тем более их альбом Americana, вышедший в 1998 году.
Альбом буквально за считаные мгновения стал супер-успешным. Кстати, он немного отличался (да и отличается теперь) от их остальных альбомов. Здесь они стебали уже не только хэви-метал, но и все музыкальные стили, которые им только удалось воспроизвести. В текстах появился какой-то юмор, но в большинстве своём они оставались такими же серьёзными и трагичными. Offspring'и производили впечатление весьма наивных провинциальных музыкантов, которые даже не понимают, насколько смешно они звучат. За это их и полюбило новое поколение реальных провинциальных подростков, звучавших так же смешно и мысливших столь же серьёзно.

Как и всегда партии голоса и гитары + табы. ..

Sample text

The clever scoundrels are all outside, and the moneyless mugs in gaol Men do twelve months for a mad wife's lies or Life for a strumpet's tale. Ifpeople knew what the warders know, and felt as the prisoners feelIf the people knew, they would storm their gaols as they stormed the old Bastille. Some of the rural poems have the same kind of bitterness 'Out Back', the ballad of a worn-out swagman's death, is an example - but others are full of the heroism of endurance or even the romance oflove and mateship.

From Lawson's time in London come the Joe Wilson stories, 'Joe Wilson's Courtship', 'Brighten's Sister-in-Law', 'Water them Geraniums', and 'A Double Buggy at Lahey's Creek'. They are much longer and much more dependent on dialogue than the early slight sketches. In 'Water them Geraniums' Mrs Spicer is 'gaunt and flat-chested', a woman who has lived through a phase of suspicion and curiosity and grown out of it through sheer tiredness. She is so much the same type as the drover's wife that she even tells the story of the handkerchief with holes that made her laugh when she wanted to cry.

They covered both the depressed and the defiant style of convict ballads and bushranging ballads, wry songs about the problems of settling on the land, gold-digger songs, and songs of life as a jackeroo, squatter, small farmer, shearer, bullockdrover or swagman. While the narrative models, verse forms, and tune outlines are sometimes derived from English, Scottish, American or most commonly Irish sources, the great majority of these songs are based on bitter experience, often humorously recalled.
