The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
I haven't looked yet, I'm just smiling inside that you linked something, anything, with Kylie Minogue in it.
Not really a typical kylie piece but we all have our guilty secrets!!!
I've been listening to 'No More Shall We Part' Quite a lot recently - Cave has always had the ability to fire my imagination.Going way back: 'Love is for fools and all fools are lovers/It's raining on my house and none of the others'
Excellent album Pisces. His first two solo albums and Nocturama aren't that great in my view but he has produced some great albums.. He was on fire with Lyre of Orpheus/Abattoir Blues
Haven't heard Orpheus/Abattoir yet.I do have a soft spot for 'From Her to Eternity' though. Still has the hard edge of the Birthday Party but you can see where he's heading.His version of Lenny Cohen's Avalanche is mind blowing - love the way he changes "I sleep beneath the golden hill" to "I sleep beneath the gold in hell"
I never really took to the Birthday Party myself, a bit too harsh for me. I really would suggest getting hold of Lyre/Abattoir.. it is Nick at his best
jeez - on scrolling down, I thought it was Bowie!
