Brazilian psychedelic rockers Os Mutantes have been around since 1966 and are cemented as cultural behemoths. After line-up changes, break ups, and periods of silence, Os Mutantes are back with their ninth album titled Fool Metal Jack, written almost entirely in English. “Ganjaman” seems to be emblematic of the album, which is to say that it’s like what psychedelic rock would sound like if it had lounged on Brazilian beaches for like 40 years. Listen below, and check out Os Mutantes’ tour dates:

“Ganjaman” Lyrics by Sergio Dias:

 

Ganjaman ganjaman ganjaman you should’ve known better

Thomas Jefferson will raise from the dead for a new revolution

the Kennedys will come back to us out of their deadly reclusion

marching down with Luther the king across the Pennsylvania Avenue

and all this crap that was hiding the bush took us all into this pig sty

Benjamin Revere Old Abe Adams and the crowd cheering ‘freedom’

Ganjaman ganjaman ganjaman you should’ve known better

almost a delusion

Thomas Jefferson will raise from the dead for a new revolution

the Kennedys will come back to us out of their deadly reclusion

marching down with Luther the king across the Pennsylvania Avenue

and all this crap that was hiding the bush took us all into this pig sty

Benjamin Revere Old Abe Adams and the crowd cheering ‘freedom’
