"Revolver" as written by and Alex Callier....
Small groove thing invades my veins
Soul deserts and leaves this chain
Here she's coming to me
Revolver excludes this community

Small groove thing take off my chains
Hoover will soften my pain
Here she's coming to you
Floating on a white caribou

Small groove thing invades my veins
Soul deserts and leaves this chain
Small groove thing take off my chains
Hoover will soften my pain

Here she's coming to me
Revolver excludes this community
Here she's coming to you
Floating on a white caribou

    General Commenthmm, no one seems to be posting on the songs from Stereophonic Sound Spectacular... which is a shame because I think it was Hooverphonic's best. Also a shame because I was hoping someone would know wtf the guy talking about "smokeys" was supposed to mean!

    I LOVE the synths at the very end of this song. So trippy in that awesome, oldskool, early-Autechre sort of way.

    General CommentI did a little research and it seems the guys are truck drivers talking on a citizen band (CB) radio. When the guy says "Breaker one niner..." he is initiating a new conversation on the CB. The smokies he's talking about refers to the police (also called bears), and when someone has their "ears on" it means they have their CB radio on. So when the guy asks if there are any "smokies with ears on" he's asking if there's a police officer listening in on the CB radio.

    Truckers originally started using CB radio in the 70s after the US government lowered interstate speed limits from 70 mph to 55 mph. Truckers, however, weren't happy with the reduction in trip time so they began using CB to find out where police traps were.

    Anyways, I don't really know how this contributes to the part of the song in which Liesje Sadonius is singing, but I've always wondered what they were talking about anyway.
