Brendan Perry – Utopia

I feel greater than the sum of all my parts A domestic beast with a hairy heart Trapped within a walled suburbia I found my taste is somewhat underground Between the shadows and the cracks I’m building my Utopia I need to break free from all that binds That makes me old before my time […]

György Ligeti – Requiem


Tom Waits – Alice

Quote. Tom Waits is made of awesome. Unquote. Can’t agree more. This IS poetry. _______________________________________ It’s dreamy weather we’re on You waved your crooked wand Along an icy pond with a frozen moon A murder of silhouette crows I saw And the tears on my face And the skates on the pond They spell Alice […]

Midlake “Roscoe”

Stone-cutters made them from stones Chosen specially for you and I Who will live inside The mountaineers gathered timber piled high In which to take along Travelling many miles knowing they’d get here When they got here all exhausted On the roof leaks they got started And now when the rain comes we can be […]

Fever Ray “Keep the Streets Empty for Me”

Memory comes when memory’s old I am never the first to know Following the stream up North Where do people like us float There is room in my lap For bruises, asses, handclaps I will never disappear For forever, I’ll be here Whispering Morning, keep the streets empty for me I’m laying down eating snow […]

Giraud & Siboni

Last Manoeuvres in the Dark – here.

Laurie Anderson “Gravity’s Angel”

You can dance. You can make me laugh. You’ve got x-ray eyes. You know how to sing. You’re a diplomat. You’ve got it all. Everybody loves you. You can charm the birds out of the sky. but I, I’ve got one thing. You always know just what to say. And when to go. But I’ve […]

Have to Drive

Amanda Palmer “Have to Drive,” from Who Killed Amanda Palmer (2008). Sublime. I have to drive I have my reasons, dear It’s cold outside I hate the seasons here I suffer mornings most of all I feel so powerless and small By ten o’clock I’m back in bed Fighting the jury in my head You […]


On bended knee is no way to be free Lifting up an empty cup, I ask silently All my destinations will accept the one that’s me So I can breathe… Circles they grow and they swallow people whole Half their lives they say goodnight to wives they’ll never know A mind full of questions, and […]

Vic Chesnutt – “Glossolalia”

i am a stranger lurking alone in my own vicious wilderness while the meat in my chest squeezes and teases a hulking hunger groping in motion balance is but a shimmering notion and lurching compelled my soul in its special hell of wet mortal limits perpetually thirsting but i bask in a beautiful byproduct from […]


Very leftist, very Situationist, very brilliant. Here. I particularly like Ben Watson’s “Music, Violence, Truth” written after 9/11.

Tom Waits – Black Wings

Take an eye for an eye Take a tooth for a tooth Just like they say in the Bible Never leave a trace or forget a face Of any man at the table Any man at the table When the moon is a cold chiseled dagger Sharp enough to draw blood from a stone He […]

Hurt – Johnny Cash’ killer version

I hurt myself today To see if I still feel I focus on the pain The only thing that’s real The needle tears a hole The old familiar sting Try to kill it all away But I remember everything What have I become? My sweetest friend Everyone I know Goes away in the end You […]

Make us a single

Before releasing their new album, Deerhoof (who, I must say, I have no clue what they sound like) has made available on their website files with sheet music for their new single “Fresh Born” – the viewers/musicians are supposed to download it, record the track and send it back to the band.

Eddie Vedder – Society

hmmm ooh hooo hooo It’s a mystery to me we have a greed with which we have agreed You think you have to want more than you need until you have it all you won’t be free society, you’re a crazy breed I hope you’re not lonely without me When you want more than you […]

Breath control

Who wouldn’t want a good girl, a soft hand, a gentle woman for a gentleman? He said, “It’s been fine so far but after a while I want more than a soft style. I want some slashes to go with those long eyelashes.” And so the bedroom became the black room but a year later […]

Haruki Murakami – Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World + Buck 65 – Blood of the Young Wolf

ten thousand horses, sable island, endless summer oh my god i’m hot to steal, beside myself and friendless number i ain’t got no culture, nothing, dirty words, but that don’t count flight attendants, waitresses, superstition, good amount there’s work to do, hell to pay, memories and fingerprints calling papa ignorance and i don’t wanna go, […]


Well I stepped into an avalanche, it covered up my soul; when I am not this hunchback that you see, I sleep beneath the golden hill. You who wish to conquer pain, you must learn, learn to serve me well. You strike my side by accident as you go down for your gold. The cripple […]

The Dreamer Is Still Asleep

May I ask you all for silence The dreamer is still asleep May the goddess keep us from single vision And you too sleep The dreamer is still asleep The dreamer is still asleep He’s inventing landscapes and the magnetic fields Working out the means of escape We’ll cut across the crop circles He says […]

Kode9 & Spaceape – 9 Samurai

Michael Gira on Neurosis

It’s not the kind of music I listen to but I saw them live a couple of times and it was like watching Samurai warriors in preparation for attacking a village or something, it’s so intense.
