That album's amazing, either way.
again, I am not talking about the sound
but the lyrics
and the feel
behind the sound.
"Reflex in the sky warn you you're gonna die
Storm coming, you'd better hide from the atomic tide
Flashes in the sky turns houses into sties
Turns people into clay, radiation minds decay
Robot minds of robot slaves lead them to atomic rage
plastic flowers, melting sun, fading moon falls upon
dying world of radiation, victims of mad frustration"
"First it was the bomb, Vietnam napalm "
"Politicians hide themselves away They only started the war Why should they go out to fight? They leave that role to the poor "
I guess Electric Funeral just really struck me as an introduction to what would explode in both the punk and reggae scenes from 1975 to 1985 as the anti nuclear war movement...
