Fruit flies and Battleships
Green Mother Records
Kip what? Something Keino? Nevermind... As an important introduction, it consists of New Model
Army's longest term bassist Nelson and his old friend Glyph Owenson from APB among many others.
They blend besides electric guitars, double bass and percussions, some keyboards, programming,
mandolin, tenor banjo, tambura and a minimun of vocals. It resulted in twelve tunes very difficult
to translate in words. Very easy to transport into an imagetic world. Full of visions of many
kinds like those movies we use to create inside our heads. With all the references digested through
the life: the genious never thought before scenes and also the cliches and allusions. It's simply
better to not mention any music artist related or that remind what these buddies do here.
Surprise-surprise. Who appreciate the taste of discoveries knows. Otherwise, it may misconduct
your impressions like those "costumers who buy this use to like these too" lists at the virtual
stores often do. Preferably, let some tracks name guide your sense, like the band and album titles
make: Monkey Nature, Spy Baby, Non Stakka Bo, Bogsucker, Cuckooland, Indian Puzzle Thing. It runs
some 45minutes in total at the player.
Perfect as a original soundtrack of a far from obvious movie. Get involved with the atmospheres
created and maybe, when you realize the play list is all gone, you feel it is a bit short as a fruit
fly life. But, then our lifespam in the battleship is also not long as we like. Ok, here you can
still have the choice of just pressing the repeat button.
From the LunaK. fact file service >>> search >>> KEINO, KIP:
Kipchoge (Kip) Keino; born January 17th
1940 in Kipsamo, Kenya, as a member of the Nandi tribe.
At the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo, Keino represented Kenya in their first games as an independent
nation. Later in 1964 he set two world records, distances 3000- and 5000-metres (7:39:6
and 13:24:2 respectively).
Two-time gold medalist at the Olympic Games:
1) Mexico, 1968: 1,500 m (3.49.9 - new Olympic record - which stood until 1984) - after having
to jog a mile to the stadium because his taxi was stuck in traffic!
The 1968 games also got him the silver medal in the 5000-metre event despite an acute gallbladder
2) München/Munich, West Germany, 1972: 3,000-metre steeplechase. He also won a silver medal in
the 1500-metre race.
He is known for his training at about 1800 m (about 6000 ft) above sea level, which helped
introduce high-altitude training as a technique to improve running time at any altitude.
Keino retired from international running in 1973. He then opened, along with his wife, an orphanage
in his home country.
