Deck the Halls

 
7pm:
 
‘Cascade’ – Siouxsie and the Banshees

 
The day began at BADGER HOUSE with an evening’s charades moving on into the early hours.  Finally, a rather tense-looking Stan and Michelle went to bed.  With Annette and Sieg also in bed, Russ, Rebecca, Cliff and I sat watching a video, only to be surprised by the sound of screaming and banging.  Stan and Michelle were knocking the hell out of each other.  It turned out she had gotten off with someone during the week and now they were both arguing it out – very violently and with much blood.  We separated them, then Annette and Sieg got up, and for the next few hours we all tried to help resolve the problems of this highly-charged couple.  Fortunately they were okay once were all up again and fine for the rest of the day.
 
 
Later:
 
‘Silent Spring’ – Primal Scream

 
Just for the record I’ve begun work on a new Situation cassette – my first with new material in absolute ages.  It’s a Berwin Groomstool Christmas songs tape basically.  The first tracks to be recorded were ‘Deck the Halls with Bows of Holly’, ‘Little Donkey’ and ‘Finale’.  I recorded these this afternoon at Badger House.  They feature Berwin (me) and Stan on vocals and Stan on piano.  Michelle provides laughter on one of them.
