HOORAY!

So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Ray is my favourite song writer bar none a complete total genius. Lennon and McCartney can't touch him when it comes to social commentary. I've met him and he's a lovely guy to boot, seems so unaffected.
