far better than i initially thought. its taken me about a year to get this record. stupid, just stupid!
The songs are kinda cosy and pleasant but its only after spending lots of time with them that their true depth becomes apparent.
its a definite grower. very subtle. although i still get disturbed by all his bumsex references. maybe if he wasn't so beardy and bald?
His face is incredible.
I always feel Oldham songs are like that bit in fight club when he splices gay porn into otherwise wholesome family movies. The songs sound so pleasant that when you hear him sing about sodomy its so incongruous you can't quite beleive you heard right.
oldham album. sweeny is amazing.
I just can't get into it.
especially At Break of Day and Just To See My Holly Home. Gorgeous.
just dug out the cursed sleep 12" again, and the bside The Signifying Wolf is amazing! imagine bonnie doing a tom waits song circa swordfishtrombones mixed with throatsinging a la Medulla. ACE.
