ELEVEN : SEASICK OF YOU [THUNK, 1995]

Οι Eleven από το LA υπήρξαν πάντα ιδιαίτερα σεβαστοί και αγαπητοί σε “επιφανείς” της σκηνής των ‘90s [Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Queens Of The Stone Age etc], ποτέ όμως αληθινά διάσημοι. Πυρήνας του γκρουπ στα δεκαπέντε περίπου χρόνια της καριέρας τους ήταν το δημιουργικό ζευγάρι των Alain Johannes, Natasha Schneider [RIP 2008].
Ακούμε ένα τραγούδι από το άλμπουμ τους
Thunk, 1995.

Eleven from LA was always loved and respected by prominent members of the ‘90s scene [Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Queens Of The Stone Age etc], but never really famous. Creative force of the band has always been the couple Alain Johannes, Natasha Schneider [RIP 2008].
We hear a song from their album
Thunk, 1995.

I’m set adrift by the things that you say
I don’t need it this way.
I’m just sailing through time
I’ve fallen down and you’re rocking my boat
It’s the way that you bloat like an urchin on wine
You’re smiling wide on your funeral pyre
Like a Viking for hire with an axe to grind
A mutiny brewing in the galley
And the sailors won’t be as trusting as we
Swallow the sea it’ll make you a man
Let the wave go and you’ll understand
Swallow the sea and see if you do
Be more like me cause I’m seasick of you
Setting off for a brand new world
Leave it undisturbed and we’ll make it alright
No need to choke that which needs to breathe
We’re just planting the seed
We’re just holding up vines
Set adrift by the things that you do
What you’re thinking ain’t good
You’re just wasting my rhyme
Swallow the sea it’ll make you a man
Let the wave go and you’ll understand
Swallow the sea and see if you do
Be more like me cause I’m seasick of you
Swallow the sea and don’t be afraid
Duck you head in and let life be played
A lighthouse shines on you
Oh god. Oh no. Don’t say it’s true
And though you’ve got the goods
Oh god you don’t know what to do
The rock is closing in
Oh god. Oh no. Is that a fin? Y
Ou’ve got the map confused
Oh god. Oh no. Is that a grin?
What a grin

    True, I know all of the other bands you mentioned, but not Eleven. I like the song a lot.Thank you! Something reminiscent about Jethro Tull in the vocal style.
    How sad that Natasha died at such a relatively young age.
