I thought Nine while Nine was about waiting from nine pm to nine am on a destiny that was never going to come.

Hi Dark, welcome to HL Very Happy

So do most people, including me, but sometimes we like to look deeper, well especially if we're bored at work or summat Mr. Green

Nine while nine also plays "very" closly on an eliot poem, I forget which right now........but trust me it does Our fearless leader!

I read (or perhaps heard*) an interview with VON Our fearless leader! about the meaning of "Nine While Nine" - TS Eliot aside - the term "Nine While Nine" refers to a local saying in the Leeds/York (Yorkshire) area. Perhaps Quiffy can confirm this? We are not worthy!

Von reffered to the term meaning that stores/shops (newsagents/off licences Surprised etc) are/were open 'Nine (am) While Nine (pm) - I guess that "Seven Eleven" (7am-11pm) would be todays equivalent.

@ Paint It Black - like the "Heathers" avatar
@ Quiffy Boy - What IS your new avatar all about?

*The interview MAY be the 7" one given away with Spiral Scratch back in 89? It wasn't me...

indeed, and not just in yakshire. they have it in lancashire too. in fact its a fairly common northern expression and means exactly waht you've said it does Smile

my avatar? its the label of a record by a detroit techno "collective" known as underground resistance Smile

i used to have quite a bit of stuff by them - very dark and very scary! darker than any current darkwave synthgoth rubbish... Mr. Green

The best imagery I have gotten from the song is the following sapping off my previous post but with more details.

The protagonist (Eldritch to some) is waiting for the train in the bitter cold.

Synopsis: In Victoria Station, Eldritch is awaiting for destiny, the vulnerable amour of the inevitable. An eternal love that never arrives, the bitter cold wind that continues to blow ever and anon the undeniable doubt of a future left in its wake. A tale of but a piece in a life (on singular moment frozen in time) hanging in the fragile mercy of incredulity...

Where does Victoria Station come from? I always imagined it as a small, probably Northern station...walking through the rain, frost upon the window pane... conjures up somewhere small and lonely to me, deserted and desolate...

Not Manchester Victoria then? (on his way to see the Red Devils?)

The last time I was there it was pretty grim, cold and deserted!

That would indeed sew the whole mystery up, Holmes. He was depressed because he was a red devil, having to share the train with all those southerners going to the match...

That's the one! My version is called "Gimme Shelter", by "Great Dane" records in Finland (or somewhere) - it's really good quality.

It's the one where someone in the crowd yells "skinny bastard" and von goes "its not my fault, i was born looking like this"

Classic stuff.

Great gig, that. That's also the one where Von inexplicably says that A Rock and a Hard Place is 'a song about John Cale'. Does anyone know the story behind that?
