What will detain the « Grive Générale* » now? Turdus’ music comes from urge Urge to laugh, urge for joy. Time has passed since their first album But still they keep the quest alive, And certain elusiveness to conventions A humorous form of disobedience A protean intoxication, tender, risky and merry. They sing songs of bliss and sorrow The songs of thrushes In sunlit days on Belgian plains.
*Grive, thrush, is a French pun on grève, meaning strike.
