Is this Morrissey hanging out with you-know-who backstage at the BBC’s ‘Top of the Pops’ back in 1989? Fancy that!

It’s strikingly admirable to see them both grinning like good old chums here.

Has the world change or have I changed?

Lou Reed selling scooters for Honda. Who would’ve thunk it? 

Regardless of the obvious sell out discussion here, this is a bitchin’ Ad nonetheless.

Punk lives on and the music dies. 

Or is it the other way around?

Song of the Day: ‘Satellite of Love’, Morrissey

Here’s Morrissey paying tribute to Lou Reed with a breathtaking live version of ‘Satellite of Love’.

I guess genius does herd with genius after all. 

Without luck you can’t even eat ice cream. You’ll end up choking on the cone or being run over by the ice cream truck.

Nelson Rodrigues

Too much love is worse than none at all: The Gories, ‘How many of you people even know who we are?’

I have always dreamed of being in a band like The GoriesIn fact, I have to say that they are one of my favorite bands, through and through. Hands down.

Get in, get out. Don’t linger. Go on.

The Best Written Words For The Worst Shitty Days: “Remorse”

Remorse by Jorge Luis Borges 

I have committed the worst of sins

One can commit. I have not been

Happy. Let the glaciers of oblivion

Take and engulf me, mercilessly.

My parents bore me for the risky

And the beautiful game of life,

For earth, water, air and fire.

I failed them, I was not happy.

Their youthful hope for me unfulfilled.

I applied my mind to the symmetric

Arguments of art, its web of trivia.

They willed me bravery. I was not brave.

It never leaves me. Always at my side,

That shadow of a melancholy man.

 

Cults - Go Outside 7” Single

New York band Cults won my attention recently. Their mix of 60’s girl-group atmosphere and C86 British revival has just about the right bite for my money. I really like their 7” single ‘Go Outside’.

Song of the Day: ‘On Jesus Program’, Mark Lanegan

Mark Lanegan is able to translate in his rendition of this wistfully beautiful and hypnotic song all the melancholy and displaced hope the original tune evokes. It’s never an easy task to tackle with the classics, but this is indeed a great remake of a haunting gospel ballad .
