ST 37's "Marina" is a psychedelic track with samples of Marina Oswald, widow of accused assassin Lee Harvey Oswald. In 1961, Oswald met Marina Prusakova, then only 19, at a dance in Minsk during his brief defection to the Soviet Union. Oswald returned to the United States with Marina and their young child the following year. In the investigations that followed the JFK assassination, Marina gave testimony incriminating Lee Harvey Oswald. She informed the Warren Commission that Oswald had attempted to assassinate General Edwin Walker and had considered killing Richard Nixon. Also, it was Marina who took the infamous "backyard photos" of Oswald with his rifle. Years later, however, Marina came to believe that her husband was innocent and that he had been framed.
