Drowning In A Well of Sadness Part Ten: Bill Malonee and The Vigilantes of Love

Filed under: drowning in a well of sadness — @ 9:39 pm Comments (1)

There’s a song I first heard on an Uncut compilation (Uncut is a music and films magazine in the UK) Resplendent by Bill Malonee and The Vigilantes of Love. It obviously isn’t from personal experience – probably from a book or something. But it is a bleak song and I love it for that.

Lost my firstborn that Winter, my wife on the first day of Spring.
So I poured my sweat into the earth, and see what that harvest would bring
I remember hell and fury, just like a plague of locusts
Egypt’s punishment for sins of pride, exact now what has come over us

How much of this was meant to be, how much the work of the devil
How far far can one man’s eyes really see in these days of toil and trouble.

The Sharp Things and new reviews

Filed under: ramblings — @ 9:06 pm Comments (0)

I have received the new CD by The Sharp Things from New York. I liked the first CD so I am looking forward to getting to know it. I remember the first took quite a while to appreciate. I shall be playing it over the next two weeks and hopefully get a review out then.

I recently loaded up three reviews on Cool Noise – Scaramanga Six, iLiKETRAiNS, and Don’s mobile Barbers – so it looks like my reviewing head is back.

New Submissions Being Accepted

I’ve finally decided to accept new CDs for review. With a little bit of stability in my life (until September at least) I feel I can start to review a bit more often. I’ve put my address on my submissions page.

I imagine i’ll still be the slowest reviewer in the world but what the hell.
