Kiosktheband.com: Pioneers of Iran's underground music movement, Kiosk is praised for its sharp and satirical lyrics as well as its unique blend of musical styles, from rock to gypsy jazz to Iranian folk. Their fourth album, "Triple Distilled," is a compilation of new songs and old favorites, including covers of songs by Tom Waits and the unforgettable Fereydoun Farrokhzad. Kiosk has added a new dimension to their sound with this album, by incorporating gypsy-style violin, accordion, and clarinet. "Triple Distilled" features notable guest jazz musicians and was recorded live at the legendary jazz club, Yoshi's of San Francisco, making it what is likely to be the first live album in this genre since the Islamic Revolution of 1979 >>>

English Translation of Lyrics:
The black list, the hit list,
the list of Google's world wide web....
I swerved through the dark corners of the "filter net"
Finally, I found you on facebook, I" add"ed you--
and you" ignored" me.
Hundreds, hundreds of times...
I didn't falter, I didn't give up
I updated my "status" so the world would know:
I am the prey, and you are the hunter! and I'm trying to fall into your trap! Yes, I've been all over LinkedIn, MySpace, Orkut, trying to fall into your trap...
I had the guys from Fars News Agency photoshop my profile picture and make me look cool.
I uploaded romantic pictures of the sunset from "Flickr" to my
"albums" and captioned them with B.S. from Osho--
And finally, you "accepted" me
I followed you like a shadow in the "communities."
Everything you "linked," I "liked," and I "shared" too
I "tagged" your name under youtube videos, I "invited" you to "events," I through myself against doors and "walls"
Whether you think of me or not, I'll never forget you
My eyes are peeled, searching for you. I'll send you "gifts," so that you'll realize--I'll never forget you
You've set your relationship to "It's complicated." That's my cue--I'm the Don Juan of the Cyber World!
I'll "poke" you until you agree to log into skype and "chat" with me!
Even the cyber army can't stop me...
Don't stress over your blog or your "hits" on Iranian.com, Balatarin or BBC. From the cute links to the political ones-- anything goes for me.
Nothing can stop me- not Jaras, not Roozonline nor Khodnevis.
I care only for Romance!
I wrote it in "Pingilish" on Behnevis:
"Oh love, oh love! Your face is nowhere to be seen...
Oh love, oh love! Maybe they've hacked you...
Your beloved face is nowhere to be found!"
I adore your every pixel!
Don't you click me away!
