Music Moment: Throbbing Gristle, “Almost a kiss”

04 Jan


Ok now we are on the 4th of January, please no one else come up to me and say “happy new year”, which happened to me 9 times today. I personally think you are not allowed to so such a thing after the 3rd. It’s just silly. Stop it.

But now we’re slap bang in a new year, and with 2011 comes a new leaf and all that ferschizzle.Not quite sure what my game plan will be for me this year, but that shouldn’t be difficult as i didn’t really have a game plan last year either. Perhaps the way of the drunken idiot will win out and things will happen by sheer luck. Hey it’s a good a plan as any!

and to start the ball rolling, let’s have a nice cheery song… from Throbbing Gristle! Okay this isn’t a song from their “classic” post punk period with lots of screaming and bizarre animal noises and hammer bangs. “ALmost a kiss” is a song from their 2007 album Part Two: The Endless Not“. It’s a swamping doom laden lounge lizard of a song. Hints of regret and pain beneath the cracked vocals and gloomy jazz score. Perfect for a cold evil nights sleep…..
