Nasilje nije pojam iz bajke. Ono je tu, među nama. Bullling, zlostavljanje drugačijih, obiteljsko nasilje, ulični neredi – sve je to nažalost dio svakodnevnice. Stoga će se ovotjedno izdanje Soda Fountaina pozabaviti tretmanom raznih vidova nasilja u suvremenoj popularnoj glazbi. Nećemo reći: uživajte, no slušajući priloženu listu zamislite se malo nad stvarnošću koja nas okružuje.
They found the lost scouts hanging head downward from the limbs of a fireblacked paloverde tree. They were skewered through the cords of their heels with sharpened shuttles of green wood and they hung gray and naked above the dead ashes of the coals where they’d been roasted until their heads had charred and the brains bubbled in the skulls and steam sang from their noseholes. Their tongues were drawn out and held with sharpened sticks thrust through them and they had been docked of their ears and their torsos were sliced open with flints until the entrails hung down on their chests. Some of the men pushed forward with their knives and cut the bodies down and they left them there in the ashes.

J.G. Ballrad, “High-Rise”
Well Frank settled down in the Valley and he hung his wild years on a nail that he drove through his wife’s forehead he sold used office furniture out there on San Fernando Road and assumed a $30,000 loan at 15 _ % and put a down payment on a little two bedroom place his wife was a spent piece of used jet trash made good bloody marys kept her mouth shut most of the time had a little Chihuahua named Carlos that had some kind of skin disease and was totally blind. They had a thoroughly modern kitchen self-cleaning oven (the whole bit) Frank drove a little sedan they were so happy
One night Frank was on his way home from work, stopped at the liquor store, picked up a couple Mickey’s Big Mouths drank ’em in the car on his way to the Shell station, he got a gallon of gas in a can, drove home, doused everything in the house, torched it, parked across the street, laughing watching it burn, all Halloween orange and chimney red then Frank put on a top forty station got on the Hollywood Freeway headed North
Bez pretjeranog pametovanja – slijedi jedno razigrano, barsko-alkoholnim ambijentom nabijeno izdanje Soda Fountaina. Termin se uostalom savršeno poklapa s blagdanom Sv. Patricka, pa priloženu listu možete shvatiti i kao svojevrsno zagrijavanje za razvaljivanje koje će uslijediti navečer!
Ovotjedni se termin emitiranja preklapa sa četvrtim srpnjem, američkim Danom nezavisnosti. Stoga očekujete po pravilu šarolik zbir glazbenih brojeva u kojemu će ako ne dominirati, onda barem biti naglašeni oni koji imaju direktnu ili indirektnu vezu sa spomenutim praznikom.
Soda Fountain, odnosno Jutarnji program četvrtkom se ovog tjedna bavi individualizacijom krivnje glede kolektivnog zločina u vidu singer/songwriter nastojanja (i uspjeha). Sve u listi navedene osobe spadaju u neku vrstu odmetnika, ako ne od zakona, onda barem od samih sebe. No, individualizacija će uspjeti, te spomenutima donijeti barem dio iskupljenja samo ukoliko im slušanjem liste pružite podršku. God Bless USA!
