Holy Smoke, the practice of setting fire to gifts meant for the gods is an ancient one. Because deities are presumed to inhabit the heavens above and smoke rises, the connection was made that burning items designated as religious offerings would result in these oblations being transported to their intended recipients. Holy Smoke… Communicating with the heavens.
Music can be described as another of man’s attempts at communicating with the heavens. A mythical, mystical form of prayer. For some, music inspires toe tapping, perhaps humming along and, for others, full-on head-banging. Getting ‘Tuned In’ to that feeling happened for many of us when we first heard rock n roll… That feeling of falling in love with rock ‘n’ roll music on a transistor radio… a hi-fi stereo… a dashboard stereo… satellite or internet radio… an amazing concert… It was communicating with the heavens. This IS rock n roll. This IS Holy Smoke.
