All Tomorrow’s Parties


All Tomorrow’s Parties = lush. Favourites: Spiritualised (“Ladies and gentlemen we are floating in space” still does the job), Yann Tiersen (in a burn Amélie burn phase), Nick Cave, Einstürzende Neubauten (table tennis bats on bits of plastic piping, throwing bits of metal from a bucket), Low, Devastations (“… all about silence… holes… big enough and empty enough to fill the grand canyon…”), Joanna Newsom (cute, with a harp), Psarandonis (bouncy Greek madness), Felix Lajko (playing a zyther[?!])…

Love is… tongues conjoined with a rusty spike… defibrillation after a fall from a tree…
