HAWKWIND : HASHAN I SHABA [1977]

Ένα [αγαπημένο] τραγούδι από το άλμπουμ των Hawkwind “Quark Strangeness And Charm” των middle ’70s – στους στίχους του η δράση του μεσαιωνικού ισλαμικού τάγματος των Ασασίνων [ιδρυτής του ο “Γέρος του Βουνού”, Hassan-i Sabbah] μπλέκεται με εκείνην της παλαιστινιακής οργάνωσης Μαύρος Σεπτέμβρης.

A [favorite] song from Hawkwind’s album Quark Strangeness And Charm released in the middle ’70s – in its lyrics the Assassins’ activity [a medieval Muslim order founded by Hassan-i Sabbah, the “Old Man of the Mountain”] is intertwined with that of the Palestinian organization Black September.

Hashish hashin, hashish hashin
Hashish hashin, hashish hashin
Hashish hashin, hashish hashin
Hashishin
Black September, Black September
Black September, Black September
Black September, Black September
Black September
Death unto all infidels in oil

In the perfumed gardens of delights
Petro dollar, petro dollar
Petro dollar, petro dollar
Petrol d’Allah, petrol d’Allah
Petrol d’Allah
Hashish hashin, hashish hashin
Hashish hashin, hashish hashin
Hashish hashin, hashish hashin

In the perfumed garden of
In the perfumed garden of delights
It is written

In signs in the stars

In the sands of the hour-glass
It is written

In the eye of the falcon

In the shade of the scorpion
It is written
In the wealth of the sun
It is written

Man’s truth is a mirage
It is written
That death’s an oasis
It is written
For all unbelievers

    Oh wow! I really like this. It drives, without become heavy metal.
    Of course, I do like some heavy metal.

      Well, Hawkwind are not totally unfamiliar with metal. After all, LEMMY started his career in this band, before forming Motorhead.
      Thank you Resa!
