Nik’s Music Almanac

Totally Irrelevant and Off-Topic

Drakkar Sauna

Much loved, and very weird, Bluegrassy duo from LFK. After 12 years they had their farewell concert, which I wish I had seen.

Basically, they're funny, and awesome, and their live shows were great too.

Update: It looks like they’ve managed to release a new album despite the distance between them. And it’s pretty good!

Sounds like: The Devil Makes Three, only there's two of them, and they sing about space sometimes, and bears. So nothing at all like them really. Just like Drakkar Sauna then.

Lyrics:

You’ll be glad you have your mask
When they drop the Saren gas
You’ll be glad that you’ve been patient
When they release the nerve agents

I aimed for the stars,
but, sometimes, I hit London

I was put under arrest
By Hillig and the rest of the SS.
Surely, that’s got to mean something...

I aimed for the stars,
but, sometimes, I hit London
