PETE SHELLEY  "homosapien" vinyl,  1981

the second solo album for punk band The Buzzcocks vocalist...
no punk sounds here though,
its strictly synthed up New Wave...
was pleasantly surprised that this one stood up well after all these years as most '80s synth sounds dated now...
loving most of these tracks and liking the rest..
I LOVE THIS ALBUM

It was innovative with great songs, I’m glad I was on it but the ‘White’ album ended up a better album for me.” Ringo Starr

JOY DIVISION  "closer"  vinyl  1980

a recent aquisition.
the remastered 180g 40th anniversary vinyl.
had never heard the album in its entirity before but knew at least half the tracks.
post-punk is what they call this.
recorded in March 1980, Ian Curtis killed himself just weeks prior to its release...
started off in a really happy mood when the album started but by time it was over i was feeling sombre...
i guess Ian Curtis' state of mind/mood really shone through on here without me realising...
and any album that evokes such feelings and passion has done its job IMO
and for that reason alone....
I LOVE THIS ALBUM

This one probably should go in a 'Folk' thread, but I saw that Lana Del Ray is a topic in this subforum so I gave up looking.

Found on the "Longmire" Netflix series.... by my sweetie again, he's as much of a music nut as I am. So the scene is that Henry is dying from sunstroke in the middle of a Wyoming desert and Sheriff Walt finally finds his best friend. But in the middle of trying to get Henry to a hospital Walt gets bitten on the hand by a rattlesnake. Soooo this song.... Season 6 Episode 1 @ 56:04 :-)

Serious now......





Carry me home when the light in my eyes does fade
Carry me home when the shadow comes to take me away
Lay down my bones knowing I'll be in a better place
Release my soul, carry me home

Carry me home, there's no sorrow down in the ground
Carry me home, don't you weep for I am freedom bound
Lay down my bones, there is peace within the light I've found
Release my soul, carry me home

...
Quietly I feel your whisper settle on me, quietly I'm carried on
Quietly I feel your whisper settle on me, quietly you let me go.....
Don't look back
Keep on track to break the curse
Take the chance
Design your universe
