Heavy Metal In Baghdad

2 comments:

  1. Have watched this whole documentary and can really appreciate Acrassicauda where a lot of musically similar bands don't do much for me.

    The members of that group weren't singing about death and decay and war just to shock and get attention. Imagine losing your whole studio and practice space to it. This shit hits them where they lived.

    I haven't heard their music made since they came and began living in the States, which must have been a little weird for them, on some levels. But they really do transcend politics. "I don't give a fuck about the TV news" they say in the interview. But they were busy living it.

    Heard somewhere Acrassicauda is not actually the Latin name of the Black Scorpion, that it was a sort of misname that stuck. (I think -cauda means thorax or tail-end, have no idea what Acrassi- means.)

    I like some of the Iraqi idioms. To be 'hidden behind the sun'' = 'to be disappeared' (by hostile occupiers or insurgents) is gripping.
