More of that lovely 80s stuff from one of those 'where did they go' compilations.

Strangely lovely song. Yes, yes, I know what it's called, and the idea is kind of utterly ridiculous, but still strangely lovely.

My friends say 'don't look back' but I don't mind / 'cause it's a fact that everyone walks blinded by a light / that someone left behind.

I would quite like to live in this bookshop. (They paid royalties to The Shadows, obviously. "That's were you'll fine meeeee...")

Yay Felt!

The ever present support band of the late 1980's.

I must have seen Felt about 5 or 6 times, you couldn't get away from them for a while.

Last time I saw them they were supporting the Darling Buds.

I ended up in Sixth form with all the kids who liked Lloyd Cole and Sinnaed O'Connor.

Leeds bus station this afternoon was full of goths.

After a chat it turned out this lot played last night.

They've always been godawful.



Once goth meant horror and the different aesthetics of poets. Now it's trendy boots and bags and goth wigs in Woolworths.

Not Woolworths as they seem to have ceased to exist.

Have you ever sat in a really quite place and asked if anyone cares?

Went to see Kristin Hersh on Thursday.



My friend Steve was the photographer and he insists I mention his name when I use his stuff, which seems only fair.

She is responsible for one of the best albums I've ever heard in my life.

Re: Post your own Music.

Though it has to be said she was having a psychotic breakdown at the time.

Should we laud music produced by people who are manifestly unwell?

No I mean should we listen to people who were really fucked up?

Gain enjoyment from other's reaction to distress?

I'm probably going to say yes.

Because all my music requires it.

I don't know about the other one but Rose McDowall went on to star in various neo-folk bands.

From Current 93.

I took this video over to my friend Andrew's house and his mother told him I was never welcome again.

Seems she didn't like it.

Her husband was a policeman permanantly on the sick after injuring his back beating up teenagers in the back of a police car.

Those teenagers were our friends.

He damaged the eyelid of a girl called Jane and it never opened properly afterward.

Then he retired early in his mid fifties with a substanstial pay off and pension and told everyone I was gay.

What a cunt.

Re: Post your own Music.

Unluckiest and worst managed band ever (apart from the ones who died in accidents and stuff). They released a string of perfect singles, then lost momentum giving one away an exclusive download, then released a mini album with worse versions of the singles, then disappeared for a bit, then released a full album with absolutely no publicity at all, then split up. Somewhere in there the cool kids all got excited about an American indie supergroup/combo thing called Battles, too.

Another one of those 'even if I don't listen to lots of this stuff there is still some I really love'. The use in 'The Children of Men' is excellent, too.

I was merely trying to provide examples of that big band somewhat psychedelic late 60's sound.

Which is awesome.
