First and Last and Always Mine

It’s 7.12pm.


‘First and Last and Always’ – The Sisters of Mercy





It’s dark.  I can hardly see.


God, this song fill me with such power and self-determination!




‘Marian (Version)’ – The Sisters of Mercy




That’s it!  All along…  The solution…


I’ve been missing the old music.  Good music?  I don’t know, but I cut it out of my life when I should have kept at least some of it in.  Old memories. 


How do I look

theez Daze?

‘Walk Away’ – The Sisters of Mercy


Remove the face of a man with a spectacular quiff and underneath you will find fizzing and spiralling organic circuitry of the most impressively illustrated kind…






‘Hail!  The White Grain’ – Death In June


Justine rang tonite and apologised.  I ‘let her off’.  We’ve agreed to ‘try again’.  We’re still together, the same as before.  I love her and I’ll always stick by her, as long as we can continue to understand each other.  She really is lovely, but she needs to play the game fairly.


The Supergrass was on tonite + I enjoyed seeing it again. 

Memories of ’86 flooded back, most notably my times at the old Wisbech Cinema and the early days of The Situation Corporation.


Today I also watched The Happiness Patrol in its entirety. 

I found the music beautiful, and the story unique + tender.  The final Helen A scenes were wonderful.


I also watched Part One of Doctor Who’s new adventure, Silver Nemesis for the 2nd time.  Glorious, wonderful stuff!


This may turn out to be the greatest season yet!
