    I listened to this for the first time in years today and thought it seems appropriate for the times we're living through.

    Not a band I've ever listened too, but that track reminds me very much of Arcade Fire, they must've had an influence

    Though I've heard of Arcade Fire, I don't know their music. I'll give them a listen.
    The Flaming Lips have done some great stuff but they're somewhat unorthodox.

    I miss Crete, I guess the Lyra calls to your soul or it doesn't. :(

    @WilliamC & @Lamont-Cranston Ye may like this, I love these mantiinades, more so when they kick it up a notch near the end.

    I was asked years back in Crete, what was the definition of a chauvinist? The answer I was given was anyone who believes where they come from is better than Crete.
    The above song always brings that back to me :D

    @Padstowe, I don't know if you know the music of Kayhan Kalhor, the Iranian kemanche (a variety of lyra) player.

    The only song (I just saw a doco) without lyrics ever banned in the US.
    Link Wray Shawnee.
    POWER. Some great stuff around his influence on Jimmy Page, Jack White, Wayne Kramer,Josh Homme etc if you wish to search it out.

    Might just be my imagination but I hear a bit of Hendrix in there too. No idea which way the influence would go there as I've never heard of this guy before! What on earth was that song (can it be a song when there's no singing?) banned for? (Okay okay, I'll look it up!)

    The link Wray clip above is from 'Rumble: the story of the Native Americans who shaped rock music' 2018.
    struggled to find a link but worth a watch. Itunes has it I think. Some eye opening revelations about the influence of Native Americans.
    pretty much most US musicians of influence are in there singing the praises of various First Nation artists on music and on culture.

    Hendrix sister is interviewed in the doco-she says he was very proud of his first nations heritage-their grandmother was Cherokee.
