Winterfood Update


WINTERFOOD


1988

 


 

Suzi, with her amazing hair, and her lovely waistcoat [defaced and turned into a spike-headed skull with R.I.P. emblazoned across its head – Future Ritcherd]

 

The beautiful

ONES


 


 

[‘Where is the Queen Of Light?

– Winterfood, June 16th 1988]

 

Why does it always end?

 

Suzi, looking magnificent and powerful, her hair trailing in the wind, her eyes Egyptian and dark, the scar of a crucifix at her neck…

 

[She drinks her water from a SHALLOW TIDE…  – Future Ritcherd]

 

Oh… for the love of Suzi.

 

ANXiETY


personified by a crouching, long-haired, witch-man with nervous talons…

 

[RITCHERD, KATRISHA, FLASH + NATALIA are

‘THE QUART’

But only

RITCHERD + KATRISHA can be


– Future Ritcherd]

 

‘while I live, I hope…’

THE TRUTH…

Master of the Game, 1988

 

 


PIDDLE

PLOP

 

[SUZI?

BELINDA?

KAT?

NAT?

MANDA?

FLASH?

BERWIN?

– Future Ritcherd]

 

Gothicism

returns to

the inside

places…

in a

truer,

more realistic

traditional

SENSE

 

[KAT HILL IS LOVE? – Future Ritcherd]

 

[NATALIA WNEK? – Future Ritcherd]

 

[AND ONLY KATRISHA COULD BE


The VictiM

- Future Ritcherd]

 

A MILLION WAYS TO DIE…

 

PICTURE, IF YOU WILL, A ROOM OF PURPLE WALLS, BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED, YET UNTIDY. 

OUTSIDE THE SMALL, NETTED WINDOW, THE AIR IS DAMP, BUT HERE, INSIDE, IT IS SURPRISINGLY WARM. 

FROM THE SPEAKERS OF A STACKED STEREO EMANATES THE SOUND OF THE MISSION, PERFORMING ‘A WING AND A PRAYER’.


THE SOLITARY FIGURE ON THE MOTTLED, PURPLE BED THINKS THAT THIS TRACK IS SLOWLY GROWING ON HIM.  HE IS YOUNG AND ATTIRED IN CLOTHES THAT SUGGEST RELAXATION RATHER THAN FASHION.  HE IS CLAD IN BLACK, BUT HE LOVES BRIGHT COLOURS.  HIS HAIR IS LONG AND MESSY, BUT ONLY BECAUSE NOTHING IS HAPPENING AND HE HAS NOWHERE TO GO.  HIS NAME IS WINTERFOOD. 

HE LOVES SUZI – A GIRL HE HAS NOT YET SPOKEN TO. 

HE IS NOW LISTENING TO ‘HEAVEN ON EARTH’ BY THE MISSION.



IT IS MAY 1ST 1988.

WELCOME.

 

Suzi, eyes closed and sexy…


 

[LOU LOU: Perfume of May? – Ritcherd, May ’88 X]

[extract of Shallow TIDE? – Ritcherd, July ’88 X]

 

LAUGH AS:                              [JEZ, KAT AND LEIGHTON FIND NEW HORIZONS IN THE KING’S LYNN WALKS!]

VOMIT WHEN:                            [JEZ PLAYS WITH WILLOCK’S FIRE!]

SAY STUPID POEMS AS:           [JEZ, EDDIE AND MORBIUS GO MAD!]

 

Hiya! 

WINTERFOOD (ex-GOTHOID and presently his own gorgeously strange self) back again.

1988 is excellent. 

Let’s push it to the x-tremes! 

It’s good to feel happy. 

We can all smile.

Let’s all be lovers. 

Peaceful times ahead, we hope.

 

At present,

I am founder member of a band

that has been known as

‘SUGARBLOOD’

and

‘RING OF ROSES’,

but right now we have no REAL name. 

Suffice to say, though,

we’re dead good.

 

BANDS:              Tonnes of stuff, principally The Nephilim, The Mission, Sisters, Ghost Dance, Salvation, Lorries, Wire and Gene Loves Jezebel.  Hunters Club!  And in a ‘small phase’ kind of way: The Cure, Siouxsie + the Banshees, Joy Division and New Order.

 

PEOPLE:            Danyel ‘Flash’/’Morbius’ Gordon, Danny Black, Astra Trellis, Amanda Jones, Hazel Church, Dan Berry, Ash, and Natalia Wnek.

 

I’M INTO:            All sorts.  As you’ll probably see.

 

BUT MOST OF ALL:

I have fallen into a state of obsession

over a girl called Suzi

who attends NORCAT

on Mondays + Tuesdays. 

She is a fiery, long-haired ‘weirdo’. 

She is also very, very

BEAUTIFUL. 

I am led to believe that she likes me. 

Let us come together in love. 

Let us last in love for ever. 

Let it work. 

Let her be the One.  

 

SING THE SONG OF THE ROSERING, CHILDREN OF THE STORM.  RISE INTO HEAVEN, BABES OF THE TEMPEST.  SEEK OUT THE BEAUTIFUL PLACE AND LOVE IN ITS ORANGE BLAZE.

 

ALL MY LOVE,

 

Winterfood
