notes from a small vicar
from a parish
in Liverpool, UK

And though I missed seeing them at Greenbelt it was great to see on the music line-up folk of the calibre of Jim Moray and Karine Polwart.
Who to suggest for next year? I guess there's probably some way to go before we might see dark masters of the mystical arcane Current 93 sharing a stage with people who played Soul Survivor the week before.
I came home to find on my doormat their retrospective 2-cd set Judas as Black Moth, released this week. As expected it's a wondrous survey of the poetry and mystery and generous heart of David Tibet, "the most elegant writer alive" (Devendra Banhart). Songs like They Return to Earth and Lucifer over London seem an odd soundtrack to my first-day-after-Greenbelt. But I'm loving them.
and i wanted to write for you
songs poems and bibles
your face spotted with pearls
and hand-cuffed to Christ
but i couldn't stop watching the signs
