Planet Funk Tears After The Rainbow

Lang geleden hoorde ik dit nummer van Planet Funk een keer in een magistrale live set van ik meen van Nick Warren. Op Spotify kan ik het nummer niet terugvinden, op Youtube wel. In de track is de bekende uitspraak van Julius Robert Oppenheimer verwerkt gesampled over hoe hij terugkijkt op de proef met Amerikaanse atoombom Trinity.

We knew the world would not be the same. A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says, “Now, I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.” I suppose we all thought that one way or another.
