taken from the “Dark Falcon” (555 Recordings, 2002), re-issued on vinyl from Marriage Records. Based in Los Angeles, California, Lucky Dragons is an experimental music group consisting of Luke Fischbeck and Sarah Rara.
The Lucky Dragon [Fukuryu Maru] was the name of a Japanese tuna trawler which was caught in the fallout of the United States’ hydrogen bomb test at Bikini Atoll on March 1st, 1954. All 23 members of the boat’s crew suffered the effects of radiation sickness after being rained on by ash from the explosion, 500 miles away. Once the boat itself had been determined free of dangerous radiation, it was painted entirely black and put out to sea again, still for use as a fishing vessel, but re-christened The Dark Falcon.
