I've pondered this ever since unsuccessfully nicking 'new skins for the old ceremony' and having to dash through the streets of York in '86...what does Eldritch value in the songs of Leonard Cohen?

I can only conclude that he(Cohen) was a vocal model who speaks as much as singing on his records.

Maybe there are things I'm not aware of...

Seeing what artists Andrew names as favourites Cohen shows up rather often. Probably that's why. Furthermore, Cohen is an excelent musician and lyricist, so there surely will be enough lyrical gems to quote from.

Like the band name "Sisters of Mercy", the album title "Some Girls Wander by Mistake" etc.

I think Cohen is one of a very small number of songwriters Our fearless leader! genuinely admires.
