Man, I never tire of this film! And, like a lot of 50's SciFi / drive-in fodder, the older I get, the more these films reveal about themselves. As Time pulls away from us, older iterations of cinema start to look stranger and stranger; there's nothing kitsch about this: it's choc full of brilliant / bonkers ideas, gets crazier with each viewing...
Didn't know there was a Harryhausen-supervised color version of it floating around, though...
KEK-W & DAVE KENDALL AT FORBIDDEN PLANET NEWCASTLE, SAT NOV 25th 1-2pm FOR 2000AD DARK JUDGES / FALL OF DEADWORLD SIGNING
So, yeah, Dave and I will be at Forbidden Planet, Newcastle, this Saturday to sign copies of our new DARK JUDGES / FALL OF DEADWORLD hardback book.
ssSEE YA THERE!
Met Jon for the first time about an hour before we played! (Last Friday)
We did a "un-nanmed duo" set of electronics -- at some points it was kinda dystoptian Bladerunner / Vangelisesque; at others, some sort of weird Improv-Techno thing going on, plus some gnarly abstractive Noise moments...
Was really pleased at how it went / sounded while playing (tho you can never tell til y'hear a recording) - I think there's a video or audio of the set; will link to it if it turns up.
Meanwhile, someone sent some photos over...
Actually, this is the ish just gone, as of today - been meaning to post it all week, but slack 'cos I've been svper-bizi.
But the Revere cover by Boo Cook is just sooo awesome-lovely I hadda put it up.
Prog 2058 ends on a multicliffhanger for INDIGO PRIME, with triple / quadruple jeopardy for multiple cast-members.
Is this the beginning of the end for I:P ?
Maybe. Write n ask THE MIGHTY THARG for more...!
Up me local, writing some notes about... stuff, and this came on.
The years melted away. At the height of Punk / Post-Punk, me n me mates adored Scott. We'd never say it out loud, but his voice - the words - made us *sob* inside. There was a point where y'could buy Scott 1 - 4 from charity shops for 50p! It was like a secret world... being part of a secret brotherhood (laughs). That easy, eerie, existential baritone from beyond...
I have a much-loved / played copy of A Golden Hour of Scott Walker that I probably bought in '78? '79? Dunno... but that's where I know this song from. So weird to hear it in my now-haunt.
It goes without saying I had my own personal "Joanna" and I suspect you all did too...
Back on one of my periodic Singing Cowboy / Masked Cowboy jags.
