Thee Headcoatees - Wild Man
Billy Childish often does things right, what do you mean? :c
Cocteau Twins and Harold Budd - Sea, Swallow Me
I dunno if I’ve said this before, but Jason, we have the same taste in music more or less.
It’s dark because you are trying too hard.
Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly.
Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply.
Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them.
I was so preposterously serious in those days, such a humorless little prig.
Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me.
When it comes to dying even. Nothing ponderous, or portentous, or emphatic.
No rhetoric, no tremolos,
no self conscious persona putting on its celebrated imitation of Christ or Little Nell.
And of course, no theology, no metaphysics.
Just the fact of dying and the fact of the clear light.
So throw away your baggage and go forward.
There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet,
trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair.
That’s why you must walk so lightly.
Lightly my darling,
on tiptoes and no luggage,
not even a sponge bag,
Pixies - “Bone Machine”
I recently realized that this song sounds like “Ha Ha Ha” by Flipper. Like, the bassline and some of Frank’s vocal intonations are similar.
