THE  NUTSHELL

SPIONS ART                                    SPIONS PROPAGANDA

SPIONS  WAS FORMED AS THE FIRST PUNK ROCK BAND OF THE WARSAW PACT IN THE SUMMER OF HATE 1977. THEY WERE AN INHERENTLY ANTI-NATIONALIST ACT SHOWING UTTER DISRESPECT TO AUTHORITIES AND TREATING THEIR PUBLIC LIKE THE SCUM OF THE EARTH. AS DEMAGOGUE LACKEYS OF THE UK’S MANIPULATED ANARCHY, THEIR SINGLE MAIN GOAL WAS TO AWAKEN THE FEAR IN THE HEARTS OF MEN OF ALL TRADES AND DENOMINATIONS. THEY WERE SINGING ABOUT THE RAPE OF ANNA FRANK.

BUT BEHIND THEIR SEDUCTIVE MASK SPIONS WERE ALIEN SPIES RECRUITED BY THE CIA FOR A SPECIAL OPERATION  (CODENAMED: THE RING OF SIEGFRIED) AIMED AT UNDERMINING BOLSHEVISM AND KILL THE MUTANTS IMPEDING THE COLD WAR. SPIONS  WERE PROTOFASCIST RENEGADES EASILY SEDUCABLE BY THE AMERICAN DREAM. THEY BELONGED TO THE ROCK’N’ROLL INTERNATIONALE READY TO CAPITALIZE ON THE ART OF POP.

THE RECRUITED FOUNDER OF SPIONS WAS 888 (KNOWN THEN AS ‘ANTON ELLO’), A TRANSYLVANIAN COUNTRY BOY BRAINWASHED BY A PLANTED TRIPLE AGENT (CODENAMED: JEREMY) LONG BEFORE THE RISE. THE PROGRAM WAS MANAGED BY THE SAME TRIUMVIRATE WHO HAVE LATER DESIGNED THE CITY OF NEW JERUSALEM: 888, THE SON OF NONE, AND HIS TWO WITNESSES – 8:03, HIS DYING BRIDE & 1:08, HIS LIVING TIME. THEIR LEAD GUITARIST (FORMERLY KNOWN AS ‘PIERRE VIOLENCE’) WAS THE BEST OF THE LAND.

WHEN SPIONS LEFT THE COUNTRY OF THEIR GENETIC ASSIGNMENT IN 1978, THEY LEFT ALL THEIR ILLUSIONS BEHIND. THEY DID NOT GO TO IMMIGRATE BUT TO CONQUER. ARRIVING TO THE TOTAL CZECHO-SLOVAKIA OF THE OCCIDENT, THEY TURNED THEIR TRENCHCOATS  INTO SOVIET UNIFORM AND PERFORMED AS A COMMUNIST PROPAGANDA MACHINE SEEKING FINANCIAL SUPPORT FROM THE KGB NOW. THE FRONTMAN CHANGED HIS NAME TO ‘SERGUEI PRAVDA’ AND SET OUT TO PROMOTE THE VALUES OF RUSSIAN WAY OF LIFE TO THE ABENDLAND OF DEMOCRACIES.

AFTER THE ORIGINAL FORMATION’S NASTY BREAK-UP DUE TO IRRECONCILABLE PSYCHOLINGUISTIC DIFFERENCES, SPIONS‘ FALLEN STAR (REBAPTIZED TO ‘GREGOR DAVIDOW’) BRAVELY RENOUNCED ALL OF HIS AFFILIATIONS  AND SOLEMNLY SWORE ON THE PRINCIPLE OF INDEPENDENT ESPIONAGE VERSUS THE WORLD. UNDER THE LOGO OF “THE THREE EMBLEMS” DESIGNED BY HIS ARCHITECT IN 1979, HE VOTED FOR THE POLITICS OF GEOMETRY AND CHOSE SUBREALISM. FROM THAT MOMENT ON SPIONS  BECAME THE WHORE OF BABYLON READY TO SELL HERSELF TO ANYONE WHO BUYS. NO LONGER ENGAGED WITH A SINGLE GENRE.

‘SPIEL! THE OVERNATIONAL SOCIALIST PARTY (HOME OF THE UNIVERSAL REFUGEE)’ WAS BORN ON THE 1ST OF JANUARY, 1979 AND OFFICIALLY INAUGURATED IN 1984 BY THE ELOHIM. IT WAS BORN FROM SPIONS’ FATED RUINS AND THE SEEDS OF THE ANTICHRISTIAN COUNTERREVOLUTION. IT STANDS FOR THE DOMINATION OF SEX AND A GLOBAL CIVIL WAR ON CRIME, UNDER THE AEGIS OF THE RENEWED COVENANT LAID BARE IN THE TEN COMMANDOS.  IT IS THE PARTY OF THE LIVING DEAD, CALLING OUT ALL TRAITORS TO THEIR NATIONS FOR AN ATHEIST PUTSCH OF THE ELECTED ELITE. AND THAT’S WHERE THE STORY BEGINS. THE GREATEST STORY OSH HAS EVER TOLD.

SPIONS:
Nirvánia


Dühöng a folklór és az izzadságszag / torz népviseletben a sok ronda állat
a nôstények szünet nélkül szaporodnak / s a világra durva és korcs kölyköket hoznak
a munkások indulnak az indulóra / a tankok várnak, a hajnal mind soványabb
a nôk segge nagy, a sexet gyulölik / az utcasarkokon részeg bandák állnak
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / kibaszott ország, üres, mint a zsebed
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / egy emberi arc sincs, az egész faj veszett
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / remélem elsôként pusztul el
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / semmi kíméletet nem érdemel

hányásnyomok és szeméthegyek / az utcán egész éjjel üvöltenek
a falakból is gyulölet sugárzik / és minden idegenre egy késszúrás vár itt
lépésenként beléd köt valaki / elönt a félelem, mintha pópa volnál
az utolsó iskoláslány is a gyilkosod / és véged van mielôtt visszaszólnál
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / lakói patkányok és vérebek
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / undorítóbbak, mint a négerek
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / hallgatózik aljasul a csendben
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / ravaszul megbúvik a hegyekben
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / gennyes fekély Európa testén
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / minden ország csak nyerhet a vesztén
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / hordaléknép, nincs mit várnia
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / sok kis nyomorult mocskos pária
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / pitiáner hadseregmánia
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / a kapukat végleg be kell már zárnia

Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / néptáncosok és lőterek
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / rendőrök és a rendőrkutyák
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / végtelen délelőtt
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / szombat esti tánc a sarokban
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / oh, arccal a falnak
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / eljátszotta szánalmas szerepét
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / semmi kíméletet nem érdemel
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / pusztuljon el - nincs mit várnia
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / eljátszotta szánalmas szerepét
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / kiradírozni, nincs mit várnia
Nirvánia, oh Nirvánia / oh, arccal falnak!

Never Trust A Punk

Look at the damned one / Who sold out your youth
The one who had his way / With law and truth
See the vicious man / Look in his face
Remember what he did / His rotten race

Never Trust A Punk / The loser who wins
Never Trust A Punk / He's betraying your sins
Never Trust A Punk / He's rich like the Queen
Never Trust A Punk / A fascist regime
Never Trust A Punk / It's just a vision
Never Trust A Punk / Reach a decision
Never Trust A Punk / Faked mutation
Never Trust A Punk / Just manipulation

Never mind your past / Follow the game
You just need more hands / You need a frame
Discipline in U.K. / War is over
That's what you wanted / new boots and order

Never Trust A Punk / He's just a liar
Never Trust A Punk / He's not so dire
Never Trust A Punk / Public Image
Never Trust A Punk / The rat on the stage
Never Trust A Punk / He's just a traitor
Never Trust A Punk / He's not your savior
Never Trust A Punk / You can get right
Never Trust A Punk / Betray your fight

Never Trust A Punk / The future is here
Gets drunk from his beer / The punk was a gas
Don't believe his death / Survive is more fun
Lesson No. 1
Never Trust A Punk / It's just a vision
Never Trust A Punk / Reach a decision
Never Trust A Punk / Faked mutation
Never Trust A Punk / Just manipulation
