Re: Book: Waiting For Another War

I just finished reading the book last night. What a great read it is. I thought there wouldn't be much new to learn, but there were some great insights and quite a few things I hadn't known before. Hearing from fans from the time was an excellent touch. I really liked the interpretation of the songs...

1988 Long Interview

This was posted on Youtube today, not sure if it's new to you guys, but it was new to me. A long interview with AE and Patricia, which sounds like it would be really interesting if AE wasn't mumbling so much and if there wasn't a DIABOLIC amount of hiss on the recording. Any way of cleaning it up? E...

Re: Gift reissue plus extras

It's only a record, yes. And only a re-release, maybe with a couple of new edits. So why get so excited? Because there are the only crumbs that have been offered for about 20 years maybe? Let's face it, we don't have much else to get excited about, other than how exactly how indecipherable AE's voic...

I quite liked it. I kept expecting it to go somewhere, and it didn't. But it's nice to think of young bods dancing to it somewhere.

Re: It was thirty years ago today...

I'm a Floodland chap all the way. Maybe just because it's the first thing I heard (to be more specific, I remember hearing the baseline of Lucretia at the age of 13 and thinking...Oh.My.God. Maybe I don't need to be listening to Erasure any more). But to me, that's the one all the way. I think it's ...

I've read Not Wanted on the Voyage. It's described as a dark and twisted version of the Noah's ark story.

Re: Book: Waiting For Another War

Jeez Louise, you're not wrong. I guess since P&P is the same for either 1 or 2 copies, the clever thing to do would be to order one for your friend at the same time, and charge them the £5 or so it would cost to repost within the UK. $24 is eye-watering.

Bit of trivia: William Harvey is the man who discovered the circulation of the blood. I've always thought that was appropriate for Von, though I can't quite put my finger on why.

I don't think AE has any inclination to release records - a mixture of being a stubborn git, the diminishing incentives, plus possibly being a bit more fragile than he likes to project. What I suspect happens every now and then is that the young whippersnappers come along, write some nice tunes, get...

Intriguing. Six Ways to Sunday could definitely be about domestic violence. But it could also be about police brutality / the sharp end of the state. I think my hunch that Caligula's Eyes is about Thatcher is confirmed. 'There is no us' probably reflects her famous 'there's no such thing as society....

That is pretty cool. Certainly looks like Von's handwriting. I'd guess it was something he wrote to send to a music journalist.

One of the things that gives me most hope about the new songs is that - judging from all the youtube vids I've been watching - I think AE really likes the new songs. Is proud of them, even.

And he's with people who obviously enjoy playing them - and that seems to be rubbing off on him too?

Oh, I remembered something I meant to say - 'the eyes of Caligula' is a reference to Margaret Thatcher. Francois Mitterrand famously said she had the eyes of Caligula, and the lips of Marilyn Monroe.

Personally, I think he needed glasses.
