about

О музыке надо не говорить, музыку стоит слышать. Так и с новым творением Pk jazz Collective. Safe From Harm, названный по названию одного из хитов Massive Attack, включает несколько кавер-вариаций на гремевшие лет двадцать назад Happy Mondays, и уже отмеченных Massive Attack. Но его прелесть не в этом, а в лирике. Где нет собственных текстов и используются стихи поэтов середины 20-го века, промышлявших на ниве подростковых размышлений о жизни. Песня "What If?" в которой лирический герой задает себе все возможные «Что если?» вплоть до «А что если я не выросту?» или «Мои родители разведутся» — достойный пример заимствования чужой лирики. Любовь, подростковые проблемы, ностальгия по детству — основные мотивы альбома. Однако, завершается он отнюдь нетревиально психоделической балладой, обрамляющей русскую народную сказку о хитром коте и доверчивых мышах в прочтении фольклориста Бориса Шергина.
И хотя на обложке увядающий цветок как символ недолговечности всего красивого, на этом месте неплохо бы смотрелся усатый мурлыка, именно такие ассоциации вызывает музыка этой пластинки.

Track Name: Sail The Sea
You can take your words back
You can take your love back
You can see the sea down
You can sail it now

The only thing you can't do
You can't take me down
With your Love
With your words

You can reach the moon
You can sail the sea
You can take your words back
You can take your love away
You can't take me down

I like staying with my Uncle Dave
And I like playing with his great dane
But I don't fit
I feel alien and strange
Kinda outta range

I like riding in my Uncle's car
Down to the beach where the pretty girls all parade
And movie stars and paparazzi play
The Charles Atlas kicking sand in the face game
Track Name: Step On
He's gonna step on you again, he's gonna step on you
He's gonna step on you again, he's gonna step on you
You're twistin' my melon man, you know you talk so hip man
You're twistin' my melon man

Gonna stamp out of fire, he can change your desire

Hey rainmaker, come away from that man
You know he's gonna take away your promised land
Hey good lady he just wants what you got you know
He'll never stop until he's taken the lot
(Hey Hey he hey hey)

Gonna stamp out of fire, he can change your desire
Track Name: Spring
Little lamb,
Here I am;
Come and lick
My white neck;
Let me pull
Your soft wool;
Let me kiss
Your soft face;
Merrily, merrily, we welcome in the year.

Sound the flute!
Now it’s mute.
Birds delight
Day and night;
Nightingale
In the dale,
Lark in sky,
Merrily,
Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the year.

Little boy,
Full of joy;
Little girl,
Sweet and small;
Cock does crow,
So do you;
Merry voice,
Infant noise,
Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the year.
Track Name: Mother Will Call
So hello and take my fear and I'll throw it away
With the slowly sea and the falling rain
Suddenly the window will open
and Mother will call
it's time to go
The wall will part
I will enter heaven in muddy shoes

I will come to the table
and answer questions rudely

I am all right leave me
alone. Head in hand I
sit and sit.
flies buzz
Father dozes
Track Name: Safe From Harm
You can free the world, you can free my mind
Just as long as my baby's safe from harm tonight
You can free the world, you can free my mind

Midnight rockers, city slickers
Gunmen and me yeah
On a feature on the freak show
And I can't do nothing 'bout that, no no
But if you hurt what's mine
I'll sure as hell retaliate

I was lookin' back to see if you were lookin' back at me
To see me lookin' back at you


Lucky deepest, crazy chances seems to be moving fast
What happened to the niceties of my childhood days
Well I can't do nothing 'bout that

You can free the world, you can free my mind
Just as long as my baby's safe from harm tonight
You can free the world, you can free my mind
Track Name: What If
Last night, while I lay thinking here,
some Whatifs crawled inside my ear
and pranced and partied all night long
and sang their same old Whatif song:
Whatif I'm dumb in school?
Whatif they've closed the swimming pool?
Whatif I get beat up?
Whatif there's poison in my cup?
Whatif I start to cry?
Whatif I get sick and die?
Whatif I flunk that test?
Whatif green hair grows on my chest?
Whatif nobody likes me?
Whatif a bolt of lightning strikes me?
Whatif I don't grow talle?
Whatif my head starts getting smaller?
Whatif the fish won't bite?
Whatif the wind tears up my kite?
Whatif they start a war?
Whatif my parents get divorced?
Whatif the bus is late?
Whatif my teeth don't grow in straight?
Whatif I tear my pants?
Whatif I never learn to dance?
Everything seems well, and then
the nighttime Whatifs strike again!
Track Name: Red Orchid
Red Orchid like the sun
Always stands alone
Red Orchid like an orphan
Waiting for someone
I can take you down
But I won't
I can bring you a star
But I won't

So the red one
It's your faith
It's your race
Take a chance

Red Orchid brings you fire
Red Orchid brings the warmth
Red Orchid like the sun
Waiting for the dawn
She smells like an angel
She looks like a gold
Red Orchid will kill you
She will take your life

So the red one
It's your faith
It's your race
Take a chance
