Tis the Season- Day 12-Deerhunter - Helicopter (Official Video)
It's like i got a fucking deadline or something but at 40 odd plus minutes to go you get a new band, Deerhunter, i know you were thinking, Jesus does he listen to anything current? and yes i do and mainly it's just as brilliant as all the other shit i listen to cuz hell man i'm a fucking taste maker, or i could just be a bit high from the x-mas party i came from, either way this is a great band, this song is taken from short story by some guy who writes fiction, gay fiction but i really don't like adding that cuz good writing is good writing, sung by a gay man with Marfran's syndrome who writes great songs and good tunes, though this band is a two headed monster cuz the other guitar player writes some brilliant songs in his own right, all right i'm going to bed cuz the boyos are determined to kick daddy's ass this weekend. cheers.
Oh yeah, the song is based on a short story about a boy who is forced into prostitution by the Russian Mob and slowly and surely unravels until he jumps off a bridge, supposedly taken from news reports and based on an actual case.
