"Countach" By The Cassettes Calling out with a sound Something shaking in the ground Coming from an ancient mound Navajo warriors Coming back to our time Give us a mystic sign Navajo Warriors Come and take it to the ground Yeah yeah Take us by the hand Show us the mystic land Yeah yeah Fall out Industrial age It's time to turn the page Consult the ancient sage I'm tired of this scenery Another bright sign to see From sea to shining sea C'mon! Navajo Warriors Come and take it to the ground Yeah yeah Take us by the hand Show us the mystic land Yeah yeah The Navajo Warriors (He's gonna ride) Came back to our time (He's gonna write) Said it ain't too fine (The future of the human race) "They tore out what was real" (Lets get it back) "Replaced with a big sale" (Get off the track) "Lock 'em up with no bail!" (Taking back the human race) ** GUITAR SOLO BY MIKE SCHLIEBAUM ** It's time to hit reset (He's gonna ride) Turn off the T.V. set (He's gonna write) Take us to another time (The future of the human race) Navajo mystery (Lets get it back) Hanging from a sacred tree (Get off the track) Secrets for you and me (The secrets of the human race) COUNTACH!


When the album "Countach" was released The Cassettes decided to ask electronic music luminaries to create a remix of the title track. The result is oddly club-ready version of the song to inspire the warrior in every one of us. Grab the Countach remixes EP and ride that Countach to the Mystic Land!

"In Navajo, a warrior says what is in the people's hearts. Talks about what the land means to them. Brings them together to fight for it." - BIGHORSE
