    Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit.

    Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it.

  • See above Mr Tribesman.
  • Apparently, they started rehearsing for the live shows in Will's Garage, amongst the cans of Ronseal and the live shows will have some 'lovely lights'

    And she is sitting in for Guy Garvey this Sunday afternoon as well, but the last track played was Brian Eno and David Byrne - the Jezebel Spirit

  • Nice one with the Siouxsie inclusion. I feel as though I can hear something of Siouxsie's later works
     (particularly tracks from The Creatures - Anima Animus and Siouxsie Sioux - Mantaray) in Anymore.

    It's a re-creation
    Again I live another life
    My imagination
    Can't cross the borderline
  • Beach House by Norway





    Norway by Beach House actually. A favorite band of mine beyond Goldfrapp.

    Edit: I was also selfishly hoping for the announcement of the next single during the interview so that was a bit of a let down but soon enough anyway.
