BWO short for Bodies Without Organs... wierd name for a Russian band that I quite like, they almost get a Phil Spector sound with Sixteen Tons of Hardware... Wonder how Phil's trail for murder will turn out. My favourite track is the DJ Tiesto mix of Delerium's Silence with Sarah McLachlan doing the vocals. Delerium is of course also known as Conjure One/Intermix/ Synaethesia/Noise Unit/Pro-tech/Equinox/Front Line Assembly or Bill Leeb and Rhys Fuller. Venice Beat's cover of the 1969 hit In the Year 2525 is also quite impressive as dance beats go however I still prefer the real thing... I did mention it in my FutureRama posting a while ago... In any case here are the lyrics to the title track of my compilation for this week.
Sixteen tons of hardware - BWO
Sixteen tons of hardware
Sixteen tons of hardware

Every night has got a crowd to cheer
A show to get things right
Every band has got a stage to fear
A kick when the crowd is in sight

Turn on feedback looper super trouper
Flashes clashing a screen
Tune in consecrating masquerading
Ghosts in our sonic machine

We load sixteen tons of hardware
Blazing steel and galvanized
We crash fifteen supersonic tanks
Through the gates of paradise

We load sixteen tons of hardware
Blazing steel and galvanized
We crash fifteen supersonic tanks
Through the gates of paradise

Digging deep inside a wall of sound
The cheering of the crowd
Take me high I'm feeling heavenbound
The sound when I shout it out loud

Turn on feedback looper super trouper
Flashes clashing a screen
Tune in consecrating masquerading
Ghosts in our sonic machine

We load sixteen tons of hardware
Blazing steel and galvanized
We crash fifteen supersonic tanks
Through the gates of paradise

We load sixteen tons of hardware
Blazing steel and galvanized
We crash fifteen supersonic tanks
Through the gates of paradise

BTW... It's great to have another body around the pad, L is enjoying her stay here and of course Myoo thinks it is heaven to have a choice of legs and hands to pounce on... more later.
Sometimes the quote is very hard to match to the blog's theme... so here goes.
