about

Om Records is celebrating twenty-five years in the game! What started out as a little label on Haight Street in San Francisco, has grown into a breeding ground for underground talent producing some of the greatest in the electronic, house, downtempo and hip-hop world. One of the legends to call Om home dating back to his early days of Mushroom Jazz is nonother than the maestro himself, Mark Farina. On “The Story,” Mark teams up with collaborator Homero Espinosa to create the groove heavy statement piece. Heavy horn stabs and organ slabs ride on the steady breakbeat reminiscent of classic years gone by with a message still focused on the here and now.

“The story didn’t end there, so we didn’t stop there…”

lyrics

But the story didn’t end there, so we didn’t stop there
We beg your pardon America
We beg your pardon because the pardo you gave this time
Was not yours to give

The call it due process and some people are overdue
We beg your pardon America
Somebody said brother man gonna break a window,
Gonna steal a hubcap, gonna smoke a joint
Brother man gonna go to jail
The man who tried to steal America is not in jail

America leads the world in shocks
Unfortunately, America does not lead the world in
Deciphering the cause of shock
We beg your pardon America
We beg your pardon because somehow the pardon did not sit correctly

The man who tried to steal America is not in jail
America leads the world in shocks
Unfortunately, America does not lead the world in
Deciphering the cause of shock
