Eloy / David Tennant, Matt Smith & John Hurt / Ricky Gervais, et al.  End Of An Odyssey / I'm Looking For the Doctor / That's In Your Mind   Options Time To Turn / Dr. Who / The Office  Harvest  1982  Name "Eloy" taken from the Eloi in the book, "The Time Machine" by HG Wells, which is about the future (year AD 802,701), where humanity has evolved into two separate species: the Eloi and the Morlocks. The Eloi live a banal life of ease on the surface of the earth, while the Morlocks live underground, tending machinery and providing food, clothing, and inventory for the Eloi. The narration suggests that the separation of species may have been the result of a widening split between different social classes. Having solved all problems that required strength, intelligence, or virtue, the Eloi have slowly become dissolute and naive. They do not perform much work, except to feed, play, and mate; and when Weena falls into a river, none of the other Eloi helps her (she is rescued instead by the Time Traveler). / from Frank Bornemann, the founder of the band: "HG Wells describes in his book the situation of mankind about 800,000 years later, and 'Eloy' is a human race in his story. The Eloy in Wells' story have made a new start with the help of the time traveler. In a way, it was a new beginning for the human race. German rock bands in the late 1960s played mainly covers from other bands instead of playing their own compositions. Record deals for German bands were absolutely rare and German bands generally were considered to be second class bands in their own country. At that time it was a strong effort for a German band to come out with only their own compositions. It was a start into an unknown future, and from this point of view, comparable to the human race in Wells' story. That is why I got the idea to name the band 'Eloy'." / Frank Bornemann, Klaus-Peter Matziol, Fritz Randow & Hannes Arkona from Hannover, Germany    0:28:39 (Pop‑up)

But we didn’t meet until long after I was here in NYC, although when we did meet it was in San Francisco, working on a project together, falling in love and starting the band, based here, finally, in New York. About this song, “Dream 3,” much of it actually came to me in a dream. The melody of both the verse and chorus in that 3/4 time signature woke me up and I sang it into the voice memo of my phone. Later I worked it all out on guitar and wrote the lyrics. I composed the middle eight shortly thereafter musically but the lyrics actually describe a dream I had of Summer coming to me, appearing in a fountain. So, the whole song is almost a dream within a dream."    1:41:09 (Pop‑up)

@Sig: in a list of religious themed shows that could be hits, I wouldn't expect the Spanish Inquisition
Avatar 6:18am Sig:

I find the buddisths chanting in Northern Thailand more beautiful then the sermons of orthodox priests in Kiyv, Ukraine.

If one would put this Shit on stage with the fact that it has never been published, which would make more money?

Tabula Rasa always a meditation. Usually reminds me of a cold, quiet snowscape.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:28am jkeigh:

I'm ashamed that I own this CD (Tabula Rasa) and haven't never taken it out of the plastic to listen to. I'm going to have to remedy that today. This is so beautiful.
