FISHINABOX Zeitgeist the ALBUM Digital release April 2021

April 2021 sees the release of Zeitgeist on global digital release.

The album collects core social change statements from FISHINABOX to open the listener to a path of genuine cultural behavioral evolution, and to move away from the investment for return based (self serving), barter and trade, repetition of failed social change concepts, “anti system with no implementable solution” behaviors that have stopped people in their tracks time and time again from evolving.

Since Michael Green’s passing  in 2019, the group has looked at other community activists and partnerships to build on RBE education. Members of the group through 2020 have been involved in engaging in a number of (on the surface), change programs, from food systems, to power sources, to education /community growth. Yet all direct partnerships we invested in, despite wanting to promote the free world charter the RBE and the five steps to freedom, were not actually committed to the moral baseline of change, being unwilling to commit to the implimenting the actual core values of the free world charter.

For 26/9 last year FISHINABOX presented Michael Green’s Art for a sustainable world under an event called MG 269, to educate and unify community action under the free world charter, and the RBE . Excellent networking was achieved in power systems and renewable energy backers from the event and remain open to future community development programs.

In additional community groups linked up to plant and grow food together at the event.

For the actual show itself we put together a soundtrack for “art for a sustainable world” with Michael Green’s former work. Christine Thindi who had also worked with Michael for the Zeitgeist addendum project in 2013 supported with material for the soundtrack. Most of the Zeitgeist album release is drawn from this event.

Lyrics:

Financial troubles everywhere
give you no time to be aware
of what it is that causes it
and it all seems so legit
indoctrinations keep you caught
in a state of fearful thought
Money makes the world go round
It’s what keeps the food abound
keeps us clothed and in a home
without it, streets we’d have to roam
sleep on the pavement, starve to death
feel misery till our last breath
We bear the drudgery we hate
because we think that it’s our fate
We have to keep a job or two
enough banknotes will see us through
will pay the taxes and the bills
bliss awaits beyond the hills
make more money to get by
but guess what? It’s all a lie!

We could feed 12 billion souls
if markets didn’t block the flow
Money causes suffering
destroys your soul and everything
the planet is about to die
economic growth has to be high
exploitation is a must
if profits are not to go bust
What is the use if very soon
Earth will look like its own moon
your children will not have a future
just because your lifestyle suits ya
but look at it, does it make you happy?
Or do you feel stressed and rather crappy?
Our offspring raised by institutions
no time and strength for resolutions
families are ripped apart
and so is everybody’s heart
Suppressing who we really are
spreads depression near and far
You are a slave to this whole thing
full of worry and suffering
Half the world has it even worse
they always have an empty purse

But did you know, there’s a better way
where no one can be led astray
where everyone on planet Earth
lives healthy, happy right from birth
no stress, no force, no crime, no war
where all our spirits are free to soar
Technology will do the jobs
robots won’t turn into mobs
most work’s already automated
so why not call the rest outdated?
Let’s just end the reign of money
and we’re not trying to be funny
Without it we will all be wealthy
happy, free and very healthy
Follow our passions every day
with no pressure of earning pay
Saving the planet in the process
that is what is called REAL progress
All we need to set us free
is a Resource-Based Economy !

Lyrics:

Who actually gives a fuck about the waste of resources, and the way that the technology is being used to manipulate vast amounts of human beings into war, violence, into the belief that the way we live now is the way that it will always be.

If we use our technology and science, allied with nature for the benefit of all human beings, rather than the bottom line of the corporation, which is money, our behaviors would change.

The first thing that most of the activists involved with the zeitgeist movement and the Venus project would say is that it is about becoming better educated and learning about scientific application for the benefit of all human beings, I’m not a scientist, I don’t have to be a scientist, it’s about understanding the scientific method, it’s not about our ego, access to the basic necessities, without recourse to subservience, credit , debt, barter, or any other monetary form then our behaviors will change.

It is only this monetary system that is fueling war and rampant consumerism.

Fresco is one of those people that I have been made aware of in the more recent years of my life, Buckminster Fuller is one that I have come across, Nikolai Tesla and you know Peter Joseph behind the Zeitgeist movement, If we use our technology and science, allied with nature for the benefit of all human beings, rather than the bottom line of the corporation, which is money, our behaviors would change.

In addition to the MG269 event, The Album collects the Japan elements tracks, the complete WATER suite and no subscription to your paradise

LYRICS:

Planet water, endless memory,. earth’s water is older Than the sun.
水の惑星、永久の記憶、太陽よりも長い歴史を持つ地球の水
it understands the ancient mysteries,
it has the answers to life’s questions and is the building block of all existence
水は古代の謎を知っている
水は命の問の答えを知っている、そして水はこの世の全ての存在の礎
water that exists in all three states, air solid liquid yet returns unchanged
気体、個体、液体の全ての状態に変化しつつ変わらずに元の姿に戻る水
water that exists in all three states, air solid liquid yet returns unchanged
気体、個体、液体の全ての状態に変化しつつ変わらずに元の姿に戻る水
The sun, 4.6 billion years old, predates all the other bodies in our solar system.
The water we drink here on Earth is even older.
太陽は46億年の時を経て、太陽系の他のどの星よりも先に生まれた。
私たちが地球で飲んでいる水は太陽よりも前に生まれた。
it understands the ancient mysteries,
it has the answers to life’s questions and is the building block of all existence
水は古代の謎を知っている
水は命の問の答えを知っている、そして水はこの世の全ての存在の礎
Planet water, endless memory,. earth’s water is older Than the sun.
水の惑星、永久の記憶、太陽よりも長い歴史を持つ地球の水

Water, the Heart of Life.
水、命の中心
Water, mater creator and matrix,
水、創造者であり全ての土台
Water, mother and medium.
水、母であり媒体
water, enabler of life
水、命を実現するもの
Water, building block of all existence
水、全ての存在の礎
water, recorder, narrator and yet, the mysterious
水、記録者でナレーターでありながらも神秘的
water that grows when freezing yet everything else shrinks
全ての物体が小さくなる中、凍ることで大きくなる水

water than purifies itself even from toxic waste every 25 metres as it falls
有毒廃棄物に侵されても25m落ちるごとに自分自身を浄化させる水
Water is life and so Life is water
水は命、命は水
never let it be forgot..
We forget that the water cycle and the life cycle are one.
忘れさせるな…
私たちは水と命のサイクルがひとつだとわすれつつある
Planet water, endless memory,.
Planet water, endless memory,.
Planet water, endless memory,.
Planet water, endless memory,.
水の惑星、永久の記憶
水の惑星、永久の記憶
水の惑星、永久の記憶
水の惑星、永久の記憶

NO SUBSCRIPTION TO YOUR PARADISE – JAPAN REMIX 2015

(楽園への拒絶 – Japan REMIX 2015)

I hear no breath. I feel no hope.
Nor whisper of faith from those who have died to fulfil the glory of another’s divine right or privilege.

息も聞こえず、希望さえ見えない。
他人の名誉や権利を叶えるために死んでいった者達からは信仰の囁きさえ聞こえない。

I will neither live , nor die to fulfill your dreams
I will neither live, nor die to enhance your self righteous being.

僕はお前の利己的な夢には屈しない。
お前が描く夢の楽園の一部になんて僕はならない。
お前を神や王として崇めたりはしない。

I will make NO subscription to your paradise.

お前が描く夢の楽園の一部になんて僕はならない。

I choose to walk the path of my own dreams,
I choose to walk the path of my own dreams,
I choose my fate,. to stop freely and wonder under falling cherry blossom, as i pass through the garden of life , never to follow , ever to lead

僕は自分自身の夢に向かって歩いて行く
僕は自分自身の夢に向かって歩いて行く
僕は自分の運命を選び、桜の花が舞い降りる中その庭を歩いて行く
決して誰かについていくのではなく、誰かを導くために

Somewhere between The Last Kingdom, Kate Bush and Vikings we find Emaline Delapaix

Somewhere between The Last Kingdom, Kate Bush and Vikings we find Emaline Delapaix …

This morning Emaline Delapaix’s little box of music dropped through the door,. as always, made from the heart, beautiful, magical and attention to story and detail like a Nordic bard of old telling stories to a winter fire.

The whole package is an ethereal experience in music,. an ancient folk music though symbiotically tied to our modern world. It is one to experience..

FISHINABOX were first introduced to Emaline’s magical work five years ago during the filming of Hannibal (anti fur video) and the ongoing Glede Wood alternative living project.

“Bend of the trees”,which is featured in this new release unplugged,  became our soundtrack song for the Glede Wood project and since then Emaline has gone from strength to strength.

GLEDE WOOD LINK : https://www.fishinaboxrecords.com/glede-wood-alternative-eco-lifestyle-project/

Outside of Emaline’s stunning vocals, and the atmospheric journey that the music takes us on, stands a deep and engaging lyrical strength. Emaline captures a balance between her travels, Her ethical veganism and her artistic impressionism, like musical paintings of all that surrounds her, the sound hands on the air around you like canvasses before fading to the ever rolling songsmith as the story audible carries on. She takes time to explore the background to her musical story and this is cleverly supported with selected statements and imagery adding to the whole package.

What’s the blurb on the album:

“Emaline’s nine track album ‘With Every Beat’ includes songs recorded in Scandinavia, Europe and the UK on a grand piano, guitars, synths, mini wurlitzer, mandola and celtic harp including locations in Berlin, the New Forest England and the mystical Faroe Islands. Apart from some winter recording at the wonderful Studio Bloch in Tórshavn capturing some Nordic ambience, the record is 100% DIY; a labour of love which was played, recorded and mixed by Emaline and her partner Lukas with a few guest musician friends on cello, banjo, flute, viola, trumpet, drums and french Horn.

Drawing on many influences from folktronica, art pop, traditional folk, and even a little soft symphonic metal on the song ‘Turmoil of Winter’, the new record is a sonic soundscape interlacing stories and thoughts about current world issues, dealing with animal rights, the lack of female role models in mainstream music, mental health, longing for nature and a simpler life, self worth and the memory loss and death of a beloved Grand parent with alzheimer’s disease. Although at times melancholy, the music is still positive…the title track ‘With Every Beat’ is a kind of mantra to help dissipate negative mental thoughts and body anxiety, instead drawing on the strength we hold in our bodies to fight dark forces and move forward in the world.”

This is an album that will take you to a sacred space, an ancient place, a meditative space, a thinking yet calming pace…

Our recommendation: check this album out, “eave the city , shake of the concrete dust and remember yourself”

CAROL HODGE – Hold on to that Flame – New Release – PUNK BALLAD URBAN SOLO ALBUM

carol

CAROL HODGE – Hold on to that Flame – New Release – PUNK BALLAD URBAN SOLO ALBUM

Punk Ballad Urban Vocal crafter and pianist Carol His back on the Manchester music scene with a new punk power ballad album of strong tracks that has taken reflection and time in the making.

She is constantly on projects, so whats new ? (Carol Hodge is a well known face on the Manchester music scene, performing solo as singer/pianist Crystal Grenade. She is also backing vocalist and pianist for Steve Ignorant’s Slice of Life, and provided female vocals on CRASS songs for The Last Supper tour)

This time it’s her Solo work.

Fishinabox have followed the journey with interest from the first writings for this solo album which started to form into songs from as far back as 2015, at a time when Carol penned, wrote and voiced the powerful lyrics on “The Power of Willful Ignorance”for one of our own ethics and animal rights projects.

Not having seen a major focus on her Solo career back in 2012/2013 we wanted more; but so did the music scene, the collaborations, other bands and artists and as a result, “Hold on to that flame” has taken time to get to general release.

This Album culminates the many aspects of her work succinctly, mixing and story to sweeten the bitter pill of daily life  issues. and frankly is the one to buy.

Tracks like “Stop the world in it’s tracks, and “First world problems” are easy to identify with, and there are the welcome inclusions of some older material “The witch is dead and “Weather the storm”

Carol’s songwriting talents over the last 15 years always seem to be caught up primarily in other artists projects (including ours…… Mea Culpa) which have all benefited greatly from her extensive talent and a writer performer and her keen understanding of social issues that she often puts at the heart of her work.

Carol brings a strong classical element to all work that she touches and provides accessible depth to core lifestyle challenges and at times along with satirical lyrics exposing the globalization “dream” for the nightmare it represents ethically and morally.

Carol’s move to set up her own record label as well as focus on her solo career is a sound and welcome step. There is some bleakness, but not broken, some melancholy, but not darkness, in her work and being the relentless optimist that she is, there is always light that shines through the cracks so to speak, the work here enlightens.

https://www.chopback.com/music

Our advice from Fishinabox – pick up the album, as far as the Carol Hodge story goes to date it is the chance finally get the album , “buy the T-shirt” and open your ears to a song writer who captivates, yet remains, a soulful realist.

in Carols words -“Don’t be so selfish , Don’t be introspective , and broaden your mind to the global perspective”
