The good folks at The Romance Reviews are turning four this year, so Vagabondage Press will be giving away some copies of The Tradesman’s Entrance as part of the festivities.
In other news, has it REALLY been a year since I posted on here? Where does the time go?
I’m giving away a copy of The Zebra Striped Shirt as part of The Romance Reviews 3rd birthday bash, and the Q&A will appear tomorrow here.
It’s my first ever book giveaway, so fingers crossed that I’m doing this right. I guess, like anything, it gets better the more you do it…
Don’t think I’d have survived growing up without these two to inspire me. Photography by: Terry O’Neil Image from the V&A museum. Highly recommended. See link below. No copyright infringement intended. http://www.vam.ac.uk/users/node/17365
Who breaks a butterfly on a wheel?
Can’t stop playing this. How wonderful for an ‘old skool’ band to come up with something as fresh, and as zeitgeist as this? 🙂
Yes, can still hear older influences like early Roxy Music, and the Psychedelic Furs in there, but lyrics like, “A final solution to teenage revolution”, brings the melting pot bang up to date.
Can’t wait to hear the album, and check out the full lyrics. I think guitarist Kevin Shields (My Bloody Valentine) definitely gives them a new edge too.
A favourite lyric.
It was the hexagram of the heavens, it was the strings of my guitar,
Amelia, it was just a false alarm.
Badly edited trailer, on the music front, but still an inspirational movie to me. Watched it at an impressionable age, and have watched again many times since. I’m always struck by the fact that I see it differently each time, and get something fresh from it that I can think about.
Everyone needs to breathe to live, but you can’t breathe in – or out – all your life.
Gotta mix it up, and explore the unknown in you. The reason I love ‘Performance’ is that it did it for me. It unlocked a few things in me, lead me to other things that unlocked me further, but I’m not expecting anyone else to like it, or get it. We’re all individuals, we’re all different.
Anyone who genuinely searches will find their own key. It shouldn’t come from anyone else. It’s a really personal thing that no one else can tell you.
Still testing this site, but wanted to state upfront that the grunge texture background is by the ace Caleb Kimbrough, King of Texture. 🙂
