Poem I’m crossposting from Glasweigan Death Trip.
Dawdling in the burning light;
broken feet drag themselves along the cracked concrete,
past strangled chicken wire, broken necks squawking out
no city ballads
of degenerate matchstick men.
This is no place to stop and tie your laces.
They won’t even leave you with socks.
those broken feet shuffle.
and my status is that I am homeless and broken around the heart area. Whilst EITHER/OR/BORED goes on a little break why not follow my adventures on the Glaswegian Death Trip which I will be updating from a feature phone and the post-via-email setting.
Did I do something to offend the cosmic order or something?
I should of been nicer to all those priests.
I won’t bore you with the details of my life being fucked. But needlesstosay things may become increasingly sporadic around here.
Normal broadcasting may resume at some point in the near future.
For those not paying attention
I’m taking a break from the blog to concentrate on writing.
I’ll be back.
You and me
we’re in this together now
or maybe it’s just me
although i might be
A friend of mine and his band
have a new album out and it’s a skullthumping mix of mad piano and darkwave synthy beatiness.
Now, when I say friend I mean “guy i know through facebook through a guy I used to know in Cardiff” – but we’ve had some cool conversations so I’m definitely leaning more towards friend than acquaintance. Still, it’s not like we hang out playing GTA and getting wasted. For starters, with him in London and me in the darklands of Scotland, the commute would be a motherfucker.
To celebrate the new album they’ve made their first two releases pay-what-you-like on bandcamp. Why not go grab yourself a download link? Also, if you like their page on facebook absolutely nothing of consequence will happen, although it does make it easier to keep up with their antics.
The album isn’t actually released till the 28th of June but it’s available to stream right now on bandcamp and I’m really quite fond of it. The lyrics and vocals avoid the cliches of darkwave (Deathboy, I’m looking at you) and the piano work keeps things fresh and manic. Its official release will be followed by a UK tour which promises such mad hedonism that entire town centers may be closed down in a state of emergency. You may well be seeing his face, makeup streaked with sweat and blood, on a forthcoming episode of Crime Watch.
Don’t believe what the powers that be tell you. He’s really a lovely guy.
Concerning the tour: The Nottingham date will be at The Maze, not at the Britannia Boat Club.
An absolutely beautiful piece of photographic collage by fellow Welshie Sonja. Be sure to check out her site for more of this fragile aching deliciousness.
I cannot recommend this album enough.
Some slightly trippy and dubby noise from Gary Fisher. Still waiting for the rest of that Photo series Gary!

is all you does drinking
cup after cup of
coffee and smoking
your little hand
not eating and
has you really
forgotten to speak?
