SOSspotlight – Gón Charlie | SOSstudio

We are very excited about our new series SOSspotlight.  It gives us a chance to showcase the things we enjoy and think you should know about; new sounds we have come across, new bits of tech we enjoy using.  Perhaps the most exciting thing about SOSspotlight draw attention to other artists and persons of interest in the industry so that other people get to realise how great they are and become more aware of their work.

This week we ‘Q&A’ with ‘Gón Charlie’.  ‘Gón Charlie’ is a Polish musician living and working in Berlin.  I highly recommend you take a listen to the brooding, foreboding track he wrote and produced for the show ‘Faust’.

You can hear more of Gón Charlie’s work and check out where he is playing at his website and follow him on twitter @Gon_Charlie

Gon Charlie has been kind enough to share one of his tracks with us.  It is written in Polish so here is the English translation.

you don’t have
a wife
but you teach my father
how to rise my mother

and you don’t know a hunger
because you have a big belly
you eat for four
telling me about the sins

I feel sorry for you
I feel sorry for myrself
that we are on the other side

I do not believe in anything
you take all
golden virtues of women and children

see how beautifully
meteorite is flying
see how beautifully
will fall apart above us

and fold your hands
do not wake me more
this is my dream
and I dream it as I want to

and don’t touch me
slide down your curtain
black clown
who still lies
