Friday’s Forgotten Phonomancy

1) Me As I See Myself: Current 93 – [All the World Makes Great Blood]

“…Only once did GoodGod cry black
And then all the clockmovements start
To crick crack crick
By the hairs on my head
By the stare in my eyes
By the pain in my heart
I shall whisper through signs:
All this world makes great blood
All the world makes great blood
All the world makes great blood
All this world makes great blood…”

2) Immediate Influence: Tom Waits – [On the Road (Jack Kerouac) (w/ Primus)]

“…Rode to Opelousas, rode to Wounded Knee
Rode to Ogallala, home I’ll never be
Rode to Oklahoma, rode to El Cajon
Rode to old Tehatchapi, rode to San Antone
Home I’ll never be
Home I’ll never be
Home I’ll never be…”

3) Goal: Nine Inch Nails – 6 Ghosts I

4) Recent Past: Ilhan Ersahin – Thomas O’Malley

5) Further Past: Einstürzende Neubauten – Musentango (Live)

“…erst tanzte ich mit mnemosyne
die, glaub’ ich, eine echte muse war
dazwischen trank ich mischgetränke
die hiessen, glaub’ ich, amnesia
irgendwann fing ich an zu singen
und ich sang bis die putzkolonne kam…”

“…
I only danced with mnemosyne
which, I believe, a true muse was
between I drank mixed drinks
which were called, I believe, amnesia
eventually I began to sing
and I sang until the plaster column was…”

6) Near Future: The Breeders – Sinister Foxx

“…Jumped tank
And leavin’
Broth of thieves
Has anyone seen the iguana
Has anyone seen the iguana

No one broke for me
I just got life
I’m in cedars
Every single night…”

7) Me As Others See Me: Coil – [Cardinal Points]

8) Further Future: Ego Likeness – [Song For Samael]

“…Samael,
Meet me at the Red Sea
Samael,
Meet me at the Red Sea
There are too many thieves in the kingdom.
I will give you the key.
Will you take care of this for me?…”

9) Emotional/Mental State: Apeboy – [Enya vs Prodigy (Lenlow Edit)]

…just go look at the lyrics for these two songs.

10) Ultimate Outcome: Kronos Quartet – Music for Piano

Clarification: Dionysos – épilogue

“…I hang my head like a snowflake-man in a burning sun
Because I’m my own ghost I’m really dead, this time
I’m dead like the corpse in their mother fucking graves
How romantic it could be to climb the sky in a hammock made of clouds
A hammock made of clouds my little one…”


Currently Playing:
Choronzon – Zero Divided By Infinity
Placebo – [Centrefolds]

Gary Numan – Absolution [Extended]
Auf der Maur – [Skin Receiver]
(A song which I still firmly believe works best when thought of as being about the Lwa.)

Friday’s Forgotten Phonomancy

Lenka– Trouble is a Friend, TV On The Radio– The Wrong Way, Blue Scholars– Slick Watts. Interested to see what you’ll do with this.

He’s there in the dark, he’s there in my heart
He waits in the winds, he’s gotta play a part
Trouble is a friend, yeah trouble is a friend of mine, oh oh

Hey, desperate youth!
Oh, blood thirsty babes!
Oh your guns are pointed
Your guns are pointed the wrong way
Your guns are pointed the wrong way

So what you sayin man
And what you claim then
They got some folks leavin got other folks comin
Somebody had to go and say somethin

Lenka– Trouble is a Friend, TV On The Radio– The Wrong Way, Blue Scholars– Slick Watts. Interested to see what you’ll do with this.

Wicked Game (Il Divo’s version in Italian) Manhattan Serenade (Jimmy Dorsey & his Orchestra) Frank Sinatra (Cake) Her dark eyes and darker hair were the first thing I noticed as she walked in the door to my office. She was here to play a Wicked Game… Dames like this are always trouble. Shots rang out on the street below. She didn’t skip a beat, she was used to talking over the Manhattan Serenade. I couldn’t pay attention. I just wanted to take her hand and dance to Frank Sinatra.

‘Tokyo Underground’ by Blue Sky Black Death; ‘Terrified Heart’ by Poe; ‘MK Ultra’ by Muse. a moderately foreboding set! macro/microcosmic barriers breaking down, connections made and lost, etc

I am so sick of this scene
These streets are our streets
We have one last night
One last night to fight daylight…
We will walk to underground Tokyo
We will walk to underground Tokyo
We will walk to underground Tokyo
While we’re dancing

Sometimes I’m so afraid of my heart
Of it’s constant hunger for whatever it is it wants
The way it stops and starts

And they are breaking through,
They are breaking through,
They are breaking through,
Now we’re falling,
We are losing control

—————————————-

Yeah, no kidding. Evangelion-esque.

Spray paint the walls…”

“…And the sky turned the color of Pepto-Bismol
And my old sport coat full of promissory notes
And the hawk had his whole family out there in the wind
He got a message for you to beware
Kicking your ass in, in a cold blooded fashion
He’ll be dishing out more than a good man can bear
Well let’s take it to Bakersfield, get a little apartment somewhere…”

Yea yea yea
Yea yea yea
Yea yea yea”

I’m as smart as him!

[Quinn]
What? I got Ph.D’s in four scientific disciplines

He realize this is respectable street
He realize this is respectable street”

Drilled deep into my skull
The buzzing eats away my mind”
