Boxing Day 1987


BOXING DAY (FIRST ONE)

TIME: 4.21pm.

 

‘To Drown A Rose’ – Death In June



 

Well, the day’s been a bit naffy so far.  Lucille’s here.  Paula’s here.  Erm.  I’ve got some more presents: a) a ‘Papermate’ pen and b) a can of Boots hairspray from my cousins.  Good on them.

 

I’m reading my Doctor Who – Key To Time book.

 

Oh.  I ain’t listened to my STRAWBERRY SWITCHBLADE or my DEATH IN JUNE albums properly (i.e. with the headphones on, actually listening), yet!  BUT WHAT I HAVE HEARD IS RUDOLF

HAISSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

A beautiful, high cheekboned goth girl with fantastice eye make-up…

 

Psychedelic, meaty twists of flesh swirl and warp, forming sharp talons…

 

Later:

 

‘Heilige Tod’ – Death In June
