notes from a small vicar
from a parish
in Liverpool, UK
Thursday, April 20, 2006Awaiting the Black Ships Black Ships Ate the Sky.
The download samples will have to suffice for three more weeks. On them all the sound of David Tibet in fine fettle - fearsome on the title track, screaming "Who will deliver me from myself?" over a brutal shunting electric guitar beat; and beautifully maudlin on Idumea, the song of a vulnerable people, which suits so well the rich, rich voice of guest Marc Almond:
And am I born to die
And lay this body down
And as my trembling spirits fly
Into a world unknown...
This is thrilling, distinctive, definitive music.
