The Offspring's Americana 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

Fearnside, now a sergeant in the 2/13th, said of the moment they were returned to Tobruk, ‘the battalion was re-equipped and re-armed by British quartermasters and packed off to the front before it committed the unsoldierly—and psychologically unsound—error of feeling sorry for itself ’. The 2/13th became embroiled in tank and infantry battles during three days of hell from 29 November to 1 December. A couple of weeks later they were out of the stunt, the first in and the last out. Seven hundred and eighty-eight men of the 9th Division didn’t make it out of Tobruk at all.

Absent Without Leave gives a deeply human face to the circumstances of war. Like many veterans, Stanley Livingston spoke little about the war, and this book is an attempt by his son to discover the man he had never really known. The result is an extraordinary story about an ordinary man: illuminating, deeply moving and told with no shortage of humour. Absent Without Leave unearths a part of Australian history that has largely been forgotten, because no-one ever really talked about it. Until now.

The casualty count by month’s end included seven cases of tonsillitis, two peritonsillar abscesses, one case of venereal disease and two cases of pedicular pubis, or crabs, the latter being dealt with in no uncertain manner by the might of the Australian Field Ambulance forces attached to the brigades. In regard to these last two afflictions, the Australian commanders were sharply aware that they were in charge of a multitude of young men who had recently been confined to a male-dominated desert for eight months.
