You can buy this song of Eric Geurts on Bandcamp:

 

she's only a child
a running, naked child
so vulnerable

she's only 'bout nine
thin and so fine
so destructable

she runs scarified
her arms swung out wide
to relieve the pain

 

she lives in Trang Bang
where fire falls from the skies
down Highway One
there's a girl that screams and cries

 

and she's running
always running
they call her the Napalm Girl
but she never gives in
trying to get some peace in this world
saved by the click of a camera
she is the girl in the picture

 

there's fire all around her
and fire inside
'it's too hot, too hot'

she rips off her clothes
but the heat only grows
it's living under her skin

she's frozen in time
'cause she still burns your mind
when you look at her

 

she lives in Trang Bang
where fire grows on the trees
down Highway One
there's a little girl pleading for peace

 

and she's running
always running
this little napalm girl
but she never gives in
trying to get some peace in this world
she's so strong she can burn your mind
she is the girl in the picture

 

she lives in Trang Bang
where fire rains from the sky
but she never gives in
trying to get some peace in this world

 

and she's running
always running
they call her the Napalm Girl
but she never gives in
trying to get some peace in this world
always understanding
this little child of war

she is the girl in the picture

Kemper Testimonies


Suseguitar from Kemper forum:
I had a chance to play one of the profiles (037508) yesterday in our rehearsal room, played my Strat with Quarterpounds ;) - the solosound is just awesome, assertive, supporting and inspiring. Great work!

Ibot39 from Kemper forum:
After testing the profiles my conclusion is: The pack does exactly what the author is advertising. You get the Blackmore sound from the mentioned era. Humbuckers are possible, other 70s rock-sounds with a little tweaking. But the real soul of this pack is authentic Blackmore-tone! For this it was created with an ear for details and this is were the rigs shine! Thanks for the nice pictures that complement this special pack. I have to highlight the pdf that comes with the profiles offering very detailed information. Great!

Laker from Kemper forum:
These profiles are the real deal IMHO.

Riddlescott from Kemper Forum:
I like it the better the longer i play it. What i also appreciate is the tasty effects settings. Highly recommended for the real Marshall Bluesy Staccato Strat Sound.

raiellojr from Kemper forum:
I like the pack a lot...a little tweaking and I can get real close to your sound samples.

Laker from Kemper forum:
Only the one amp a Marshall Major but it sounds like the real deal. These profiles are outstanding. Everything they make sounds great. What I really like about them is their sound samples sound just like what you download. IMHO a lot of other profilers do not sound the same.

Acolbourn from Kemper forum:
For Frusciante profiles I tried flying snowman's more black pack listed above and they sound great!

Razorpig55 from Kemper forum:
I spent a ton of time searching for the right “blues” tones and happened on your site.  I really love the pack ('60 Pack) I downloaded, especially the FS ’60 B1001pa......nice, crunchy and just a bit mellow.  I’m going to post your site on the reddit site for Kemper.......have a great one thanks for the great tones.
