Hello Keren

My name is Eliana from Switzerland. Through Resistance Productions i came to a copy of the Paverotti – compilation. So here I write you. I would like to order a few more copies, money included, just send me as many copies as possible for the amount of money included. It’s great fun that I got hold of your compilation since it’s very rare to get such stuff from Israel. I was interestet into it since my mother is Israel as well. I myself work at a ganon in Zürich, wich actually is a bit strange because of that thing religion since I don’t give a fuck about religion. I earn a good wage and most of all I like to work with children. Beside of this it’s good to relearn Ivrit again (when I was a child I was used to it but most of it I forgot since I wasn’t much interestet neither because I was forced o go to israhell, i don’t like the political situation over there at all) at the ganon We have some israeli children who came from the kibbutzims.

Do you write german or french? I hardly can write english… I needed a translator to write this letter (we have a small distribution service selling/ trading zine’s, records, tapes, buttons, patches) and this person writes english very well. We play also in a band in Zürich (“An naon du” is bretonian – old french celtic language which means “the dark hunger”). We have amongst other social-political and funny songs one Womens-rights-song sung in Ivrit “Nashim Bubot”. That song deals about females who have in their childhood been “introduced” to play with dolls/ puppets wich teaches them to accept their role as a woman.

Once we should have a demo-tape, I shall send you some recordings… In about 10 days we make a small germany-tour with two other german bands, if possible we should record a few songs live.

Alright, I think thats all for now, please write back soon

much love,

ps – greetings from the translator, the tape is great!!!!

STAMPS BACK!

Eliana was so eager to write and order the tapes that she did not let the language barrier to stand in between us and found an intermediate who translated her words into the Universal Language of Punk. That’s pretty amazing.

For some reason Parverotti was very popular in the Land of Swatch, dada and triangular chocolate bars (and The Young Gods!). It got a raving review in a local zine which I hope I’ll find. Well, these are the people who put out Bullshit Detector Vol. 4, so it isn’t THAT surprising.

Oh, an a glossary:

Ivrit – Hebrew

Ganon – Kindergarten/ Preschool

Nashim Bubot – Doll Women. Natürlich, the title reminds me of Vaadat Kishut’s Hardcore Puppet:
