Valentine

Day by day, we get closer and closer to this song being a prophecy.

Re: currently cutting a rug to

More seriously, all albums by Ladytron, The Eden House and Unloved. For some reason, I only wish to listen to music with female singers these days. Not quite sure what it is.

There must have been some kind of legal proceedings since, as far as I can recall, Eldritch won a certain amount in damages from the Hussey camp. Damned if I can remember how much it was. It's not as though Eldritch gloated about it or anything like that. ;-) > As I recall, the row wasn't about the ...

It may be interesting to speculate on how things would have progressed had Eldritch continued with the name The Sisterhood. Perhaps very differently, perhaps exactly the same. That's a very interesting point to speculate on, Mark. After all he, won the court case and had proved his point. In a sens...

Not read any of this thread. Just read the title and chipping in with the opinion that The Sisters sounded their best live in '85. Not that I saw them then but do have the boots to prove it. Simple as that and my opinion on this is utterly inflexible. So there.

Sam, I would say the whole point of a joke is to subvert accepted moral standards, but not seriously, only in a 'sandbox', so to speak. It's a very interesting question as to why we would want to do this. Clearly there is something unnatural about being compelled to obey these moral standards. Other...

With all due respect Mark, there is nothing, I repeat nothing, that was right in 1996 and is wrong in 2020.

Here's the big one: was he wrong to have recorded and thus committed the history of this galaxy 'The Damage Done'?

My view on this is that was a price worth paying for the utterly bastard groovy 'Home of the Hitmen', but only just.

Eldritch was wrong to start smoking and he knows it. And I was wrong to follow him and I know it. That said, it was kind of amusing and also somewhat sad (even to a fellow smoker) to see him at the Bristol gig last week with an unlit fag between his fingers for two thirds of the show until he was ab...

> Sartre did not; he still wanted there to be such a thing as humanism.

Not in the Being and Nothingness era. That came later e.g Existentialism Is a Humanism. As far as I'm concerned his work was done with Being and Nothingness.

Sartre's 'Being and Nothingness', even though it's basically a goth cover version of Heidegger's 'Being and Time', is nevertheless a remarkable, insightful achievement. My main criticisms of both authors apply to their later endeavours.

Just had a taxi ride back from my local Morrisons where the actually quite enjoyable 'Fast Car' by Tracy Chapman was being played on the radio. It rung a little memory bell relevant to the subject at hand. Back in the day when Tracy (and possibly Eldritch) commanded substantial media attention, he w...

Going back to my original question and subsequent questions about my view on such matters, in a sense I'm actually envious of transsexuals. Bear in mind that I'm drunk as I type this. I envy the fact that, at least in principle, their problem is solvable, to some extent anyway, and things will impro...

I very much doubt there will be a tour after Peter's heart attack. He'll be taking it much more easily from now on if he knows what's good for him and I'm sure he does. A new album though, if these dates go well and the chemistry is good...who knows? Anyone know why they split up after Go Away White?

I have. He was wrong to give that guitarist that fiver. It should have been £3.62 at the most. At least he learned to remunerate his staff according to their worth when Patsy waddled across his transom.
