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. ..

The commandant’s house, on the other hand, was a prefabricated timber building imported from England and set on foundations of locally made brick. It was also spacious, measuring almost 10 by 4 m, with a cellar, glass in the windows and plastered internal walls (Hayes 2004:32–36). Moreover, it was in the centre of the settlement, at its literal and figurative heart. Immediately adjacent was the parade ground and flagpole where convicts and soldiers both assembled at daily musters and the Union Jack flew boldly over all.
