"Slow Fast Hazel" as written by Timothy John Gane and Laetitia Sadier....
Discovery of fire, America,
The invention of the wheel, steel work and democracy
Philosophy, the soviets and other events in history of humanity
Happened at a certain given moment in time

Won't go back to the days couldn't even start a fire
Won't go back to the days america'd not been discovered
The transition has been operated for ever
What had gone on before from what there'd been after

    General CommentThis basically a Marxist historical perspective on events, placing more emphasis on historical group development rather than individual action. Here Laetitia stresses the evolutionary aspect and on the futility of nostalgia.

    General CommentI totally concur with DevastatorJr above. Marxist theory is a good place to start uncovering what Laetitia's thinking with her songs. This song in particular is very incisive not only as a thumbnail view of historical materialism, but also as a critique of ideology. "Philosophy" is mentioned alongside "steel work" and "the Soviets" as if it had happend as an isolated event and not as a continuing endevor. What is implied is that philosophy is no longer a viable enterprise, it is dead, no longer active. This is technically not true since there are plenty of philosopher PhDs to be found still "philosophizing". But Laetitia's point is well taken: why conitnue traditional paradigms of thought/action that have brought humanity nowhere?

    General CommentHey, I've never heard of this song, but historical materialism is always interesting, so I'll give it a listen.
