about

Like the Sunday soapbox orators of Hyde Park London, who have assembled at Speaker's Corner since 1872 to discuss, Religion, politics, and other topics so to this record express’s theirs concerns and is aFlamboyant release of their frustrations…” From this record is born a new style of music; primitive and grounded, folk-tales connect seemingly disparate genres into a single curbstone philosophy, “SOAPBOX MUSIC”. Converging African polyrhythm’s with punk-rock dissonance and combining swing, rock-steady and rhythm & blues.
-Richard Alexander

about

REVEREND SHINE SNAKE OIL Co. Copenhagen, Denmark

Primitive & grounded, folk-tales connect seemingly disparate genres into a single curbstone philosophy “SOAP BOX MUSIC”. Converging African polyrhythms with punk-rock dissonance. Combining swing, rock-steady and rhythm & blues… Sarcastic and sentimental; Agitated and serene, they are a throwback to the Negro spirituals and the American folk tradition. ... more

Track Name: SOAP BOX
God lives in the space between two people...
God lives in the space between you and me.
God fills the void of communication and all
that we do not see.
God isn't some source of redemption bestowing
gift of sight.
God isn't some reward or blessing or offering of
eternal life....
As natural as feces God fills the gutter of life.
Don't miss-judge the reason you suffer.
When I spit in your face,
taste the salt, water, air...
Water... air.
God's out there!
Track Name: HERETIC
Light the heart that's empty. Happy as a fool in the
rain....
Kiss the ring that holds you in a subservient position.
Demonize our passions...Walk in a land mine of
dreams...
Ritualize confusion, Conquer by any means...
Jesus, what is wrong with my faith? He came here
to save us. We exploit the name....
Jesus, what is wrong with my faith? He came here
to save us. We exploit the name....
We will never learn when will we see....
We lie awake, We fall deceit.
We follow desires of those who are week.
I have seen the bloody cross, marching on with brutal
force... It's not for love this world we make, broken
bones lie in the wake. Do you recall the recent past,
those opposed would take the lash...
Enlightenment has been replaced by "Entitlement" and
blind FAITH....
Precious time unfolding, collapsing-present , futurepast.
Mind controlling... as WE are loosing our grasp.
Micro-cosmic cycles denote the absence of Song...
Like a child, with out a sole...
Can you sense that something is wrong....
You sense that something is wrong.
Track Name: NYHAVN
We go riding this Marry-go-round; obviously
we have our up's and our down's. I miss
summer, winter is far too profound. Casting
Shadows like ships mast in Nyhavn.
Waiting vessels grow weary in the sound,
casting shadows like ships mast in Nyhavn.
We sail these seas guided by stars. Intuition
leads me back to your arms and simple words
have the greatest of charms, turning snake oil
into healing balms. Life's lesson, beckons
alarm's turning snake oil into healing balms.
Track Name: Birthday Suit
I don't want to hurt you have seen all I've gotten from
skin paper-thin see the wind blow me down.
I don't understand you have seen all I can give you food
give you lust for the rough road ahead.
I must try again to undress in the light.
I must try again to undress in the light.
I don't want to fear you have held me too close felt my
hunger for life in the here in the now.
I'm the one to avoid like the plague, like white noises
wont stop till the trust is a must more than lust.
I must try again to undress in the light.
I must try again to undress in the light.
I am...
Sorry...
But now it is time to...
Depart...
from the...
HEART...MIND...SOUL...MIND...HEART...HEART...
HEART...
Heart, mind and soul...
Still not whole
