Reverend Shine Snake Oil Co.
Release date: 08-06-2015
REVEREND SHINE SNAKE OIL Co. started in 2007 and have since then played over 400 shows in 9 different countries. Originating in New York City, now living Copenhagen this band of characters (The Sandman, Angeryman, Colonel Taz and the Silk City Kid) have formed a unique brand of music, something they refer to as “soapbox music”, celebrating the “American Sound” or what some refer to as “roots music”. But it does not stop there. There’s a distinct guttural sound that gains its power from the primitive and distinct polyrythms of Africa and the Anti-establishmentarianism of youth movements like punk-rock and hip-hop.
Solipsism (; from Latin solus, meaning “alone”, and ipse, meaning “self ”) is the philosophical idea that only one’s own mind is sure to exist. As an epistemological position, solipsism holds that knowledge of anything outside one’s own mind is unsure; the external world and other minds cannot be known, and might not exist outside the mind. As a metaphysical position, solipsism goes further to the conclusion that the world and other minds do not exist. Extreme egocentrism!
