Viet Cong, isto é, Canadá

Chamam-se Viet Cong. O seu primeiro álbum dá pelo nome de Viet Cong. Que é como quem diz: são canadianos e andam às voltas com uma sonoridade punk, sem transigências, inclusive nas suas intensidades poéticas. Aqui fica a letra de Continental Shelf e o respectivo teledisco, magnificamente intrigante e envolvente.

When all is said and done
You'll be around until you're gone
Crystallized, cancelled eyes
Illegitimate merchandise
Don't want to face the world
It's suffocating (suffocating)
Undesireable circumstances
I can't feel, no I can't feel

Fingertips in the fountain
Fondle liquid gold
Ice on the horizon
The skyline folding in
Nothing is beginning
Edges falling off of themselves
And the water is draining
Off the continental shelf

Check your anxiety
No need to suffer silently
Convulsion vibrating
Being violated (violated)
Don't want to reminisce
I can't remember (can't remember)

Fingerprints in the fountain...
