Download e-book for kindle: Americana by The Offspring

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. ..

Example text

Certes! we are living also, Shall not we be glad? Onward! onward! must we travel? Is the goal more near? 33 Riddle we may not unravel, Why so dark and drear? Yon small bird his hymn outpouring, On the branch close by, Recks not for the kestrel soaring In the nether sky, Though the hawk with wings extended Poises over head, Motionless as though suspended By a viewless thread. See, he stoops, nay, shooting forward With the arrow’s flight, Swift and straight away to nor’ward Sails he out of sight.

Black Bolingbroke snorted, and stood on the brink One instant, then deep in the dark sluggish swirl Plunged headlong. I saw the horse suddenly sink, Till round the man’s armpits the waves seemed to curl. We follow’d, – one cold shock, and deeper we sank Than they did, and twice tried the landing in vain; The third struggle won it; straight up the steep bank We stagger’d, then out on the skirts of the plain. The stockrider, Alec, at starting had got The lead, and had kept it throughout; ’twas his boast That through thickest of scrub he could steer like a shot, And the black horse was counted the best on the coast.

While preparing a manuscript of his major poems, for what he hoped would be an English edition, he died of consumption in the winter of 1868. For the century or so after his death Harpur’s reputation was overshadowed by Kendall and Gordon, who are his inferiors. Until the publication in 1984 of Elizabeth Perkins’ The Poetical Works of Charles Harpur of more than 1000 pages, Harpur’s status could not be fully appreciated. His posthumous Poems, published in 1883 after much devoted effort by his widow, gave a distorted picture of his work as its editor omitted many of the best poems, and amended and cut others, sometimes transposing lines.
