about

A bloated, writhing psychedelic beast of the night, with a distinctive indian-vibe via Byrds-like noodlings and many tricks out of the 1966-1968 text book.

Attempted McGuinn meets Coltrane Rickenbacker randomness in places.
Backwards guitars, sitars, fuzztone, mandolins and false-fades.

Izzy is a Mowgli-type character, straight out of the Jungle Book, with a fascination for killing dark, black snakes..for no apparent reason.

lyrics

Izzy Tamazi was a gifted child
He had a conscience
A conscience of kings said those who had spent time in his company
He wandered the small, dark market square at night
Looking for jewels
The jewel in his crown

The snake charmer:
A wry, sneezing, aching little man
Placed the dark, black snake into the box

Darkness fell on the town square

Izzy with his knife in his hand
Approached the box
The knife gleaming

The snake
Yes, the snake

Evil, twisted, rubber-like
Moving
Slowly

The snake
Yes, the snake

Izzy Tamazi & The Snake Charmers
