Atenas Ourkouzounov - Eastern Songs

Atenas Ourkouzounov, guitar

Update:  I don't know what it is about people from small Eastern European countries using the indigenous musical traditions of their countries that sets Simps off, he seems to take it as a personal affront to his .... um.... sensibility.   Why it's any worse than anyone else using their national musical materials when they compose, I have no idea.   As I've pointed out, you can find that kind of bigot flourishing in the suburbs of culture in the New York City area.   Considering how many of his heroes steal other peoples' national musical styles it is especially silly.

For some reason, all of a sudden, I've started thinking of him as Colonel Simp.  That rhymes with Blimp.


  1. Gene Autry -- Western Songs

  2. Are you really so dense that you didn't get that the Gene Autry joke was making fun of YOU, not Eastern European countries?

    All signs point to yes, obviously.
