Going For A Song: ‘Sisters! Brothers! Small Boats Of Fire Are Falling From The Sky!’

Thee Silver Mt Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band – Sisters! Brothers! Small Boats Of Fire Are Falling From The Sky!

Listening to Godspeed You! Black Emperor this week I was reminded that it was Silver Mt Zion, the band started by Godspeed guitarist Efrim Menuck, that initially took my interest and, perhaps controversially (though admittedly to not that many people), I’ve always preferred to the parent band.

This is the first song off their second album Born into Trouble as the Sparks Fly Upward (2001).
