Finnegan’s Wake is the name of at least one other progressive rock band, but this one hails from Belgium, though now resides in Brazil, and is led by Henry Krutzen, who founded the band in 1993, and it reminds me of a chamber-rock band, not dissimilar to Rock-In-Opposition bands like Henry Cow or Art Zoyd.

[Video] Marisa Monte – Verdade, Uma Ilusão

My heart is happily ensconced in Brazil these days. I’m kept company by a peach of a girl I can only refer to as my fofinha, and it happens that she has impeccable taste in music. As Valentine’s Day draws near, I get the privilege of sharing a terribly romantic song with the readership. The lyrics are here, and are worth using Google Translate if you can’t understand Portuguese.
