Cleveland Field Report

Today, The Driftwood Singers would like to Present our newest recruit in the long, hard battle to destroy the productivity of the worker and subvert the capitalist system: Agent Eliot, our Very Special Cleveland Correspondent, broadcasting live from one of this site's favorite rock'n'roll towns. Actually, due to an editorial delay, this is breaking news from yesterday, but you're on Driftwood time now.



5 A.M.: Crack and scream! Quiet, then approaching sirens. We shake off Friday night's sake to stare out the window at flashing red lights. A car on the porch is worth two in the street and the whole block is awake for the rising of Cleveland's tropical sun. What do Saturday morning fire trucks and ambulances put me in the mood for?
Samba!

Não escutar o Lefty. Cleveland não está assim frio!

[Ed. note: According this site, that translates roughly to: "Do not listen to the Lefty. Cleveland is not like this cold."]


Milton Banana Trio - Barquinho Diferente


Wilson Simonal - Não Vem Que Não Tem

The G-9 Group - Senhora Madonna

Gal Costa - Barato Total

Postscript: It turns out that the SUV was driven by a drunk Cleveland police officer. She was passed out in the vehicle in the middle of the school yard. Someone tapped on her window and she panicked and floored it. To hit that house, she went right between a telephone pole and a large tree.

-- Agent Eliot
