Re: never-ending gallery

Geoffrey, that is a great pensive portrait! You know that over time it will become a brown-yellowish old sepia-like colour which is OK. Its style and feeling reminds me of the coffee one you did some years ago that you know I also like :) Also, its good to note your versatility with the different fe...

Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Thanks for the links.

Love this archetypal LC line from It's Torn in the Quietus one -
One of the darkest tracks, ‘Its Torn’ employs a murky tone alongside moments of simple brilliance, with typical commentary on an unknown topic: ‘the lie in what’s holy, the light in what’s not’.

That's all that's left. There's no more. It's not another death album, when usually someone tries to make...

Ah Hartmut, now you’ve said that it surely does remind me of many happy and frustrating times we all had years ago when we played a certain game about matching images to LC’s lines .... :) Seems its essence still lives within me ;-)

Re: Happens to the Heart - song and video released

Hi Weilin, Thanks for thinking of me but I did read that info about Slow when it first came out and again yesterday as well when I was looking for more specific info on Happens To The Heart :) And most interesting is that The Files do now in fact show exactly the same words as The Flame – it would a...

Re: Happens to the Heart - song and video released

I guess the lyric version is much older than the poem. In a Sep 14, 2014 article of Rolling Stone: WiTS, That does make sense and you probably know that two of the poem lines vary even though both versions (The Files and The Flame) have the same date on them. It does make you wonder what was writte...

Re: In search of a poem

Well, it would appear we have all done what we can to find this line. It still would be great to listen to that CBC interview - Audience from 1979. Maybe someone will come across it and let us know. I thought I'd mention that the song What Happens To The Heart just released from the new album has re...

There are some different lines from the written poem the same in the Nowness video and this official audio one below.
