“It was one of those days when it’s a minute away from snowing and there’s this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And this bag was, like, dancing with me. Like a little kid begging me to play with it. For fifteen minutes. And that’s the day I knew there was this entire life behind things, and… this incredibly benevolent force, that wanted me to know there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video’s a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember… and I need to remember… Sometimes there’s so much beauty in the world I feel like I can’t take it, like my heart’s going to cave in.”—Amercian Beauty
Here’s a track from the 80s. Two old Modern English songs recorded by Ivo and the crew at 4AD. Liz Fraser sings the vocals beautifully (as usual). I remember getting this played at a night club on the Isle of White. Just my friend and I danced. But it was a good and happy time.
