Watch out. Musicians are egocentric wankers, mostly. And don't worry about writing any songs just yet. Spend six months getting your concept together: what you're gonna look like; typo/artwork/graphics - the overall 'aesthetic' of the band; how you're gonna get noticed; how you're gonna come across ...

White is the funereal colour in many Asian countries, including Korea.

I never got the impression he was going white as an anti-goth comment, however. Love And Rockets did.

Fave era 83-86, from the Temple of Love EP through to Gift. Eldo had become good at programming a drum machine by this stage (did he obtain a helping hand?) and I liked the dance beats.

Although the people there are seriously caught up in the race, Beverley Hills is in fact the spiritual home of many of us - yet Ronald Reagan changed his house number (forgot the street name) from 666 at the request of his wife, Nancy.

I agree the collection of songs are varied, but individually some of them are repetitive: Rain From Heaven, with its repeated lines, being an obvious example, and Colours, too. Did this have anything to do with mantras? I always felt art was open to interpretration, but I think it was Eldo who said ...

The Gift album

So is there any inside word on whether the Gift album was just a bunch of demos with a few quick Eldritch stylistic tricks thrown in to make it pallatable, as I sometimes suspect it was? (This could also explain the serious lack of 'single' material on the album and the repetitiveness - perhaps the ...

Fashion, and Mulligan

Does anyone know if I can get any of this band's stuff on CD? It isn't looking good, but they were one of the more overlooked bands of their era - unique in a time when there were a lot of imitators around. For anyone that doesn't know them, here are some links.... http://www.connollyco.com/discogra...

Hmm... literary Eldritch. Songs about speed, speed and more speed, with the occasional mirror, gun, knife, boulevard, red light or girl, but "mostly about speed", haven't got a real lot to do with Voltaire or Gabriel Garcia Marquez, now do they, mate. Not even Dirk Hartog gets a mention.

The American (et al) Idol talent quest

I suppose there has been an Idol show in most countries by now. The fellow who won the Australian show, Guy Sebastian, is a member of a very large 'charismatic' church, called Hillsong. Their church gatherings feature big drumkits and electric guitars on stage (oops, I mean the altar) plus flashing ...

In terms of business suss, Colonel Tom Parker had it. Upon hearing of Elvis's death, he said (words to the effect of) "He isn't dead - only his body is". Judging by the on-going record sales, Parker is right. The Presley legend has lived on. Aah, Elvis is The King - and I'm glad that someone who sta...

Young Elvis (pre-sideburns!) in sharp 1950s suits. Not the later Liberace-style Elvis of popular caricature. The many 'Fat Elvis era' (the Las Vegas years) caricatures, and all those supposed sightings of Elvis (invariably either pumping gas, eating fried chicken or buying cheeseburgers), are a disr...

But does necrophilia actually occur? Obviously it sounds like a hugely gruesome and ghoulish thing, but is it actually common or even practiced?

I was going to ask, "where do they get the bodies?!?", but perhaps a necrophiliac is also a murderer, then?

I use to have the Cindytalk albums on vinyl. I sold them and never quite got around to replacing them in CD format. The last time I spoke to Gordon he seemed fairly mobile, moving around the US, and he didn't have any copies of his own CDs and therefore couldn't send me any. But I got the first albu...

I go for the plastic box, even though I'm not a musician. Interestingly, I was thinking about the topic of drum machines this past week: There is a huge emphasis on making the drums sound 'real' .
