This one of the songs that has haunted me for very long time, but I didn’t know it was actually about his uncle that died when a WW2 sub sunk …decades ago came up with a fantasy about an escaped submarine deciding to do a Mutiny on the Bounty, a sort of cold-war fantasy fable, and the singer being a descendent from that escaped sub…the truth is far sadder.
But what the HELL is the drummer playing? A kid’s hammer bench toy?!? Great live video though. (via DJ Not-I)
