My band Leaping Felix did a photoshoot last weekend with my best mate Chris. Here are our favourites.
The Middle East - The Darkest Side
Francoise Hardy - ‘Suzanne’ (Leonard Cohen)
I just finished listening to Dave Grohl’s SXSW keynote speech, and it’s left me feeling fucking inspired. It got me thinking about the first song to blow my mind, and it was pretty quick for this song, Bullet the Blue Sky by U2, to come to mind. I can remember as a kid getting pretty vivid imagery from the lyrics. I can remember being unsure if the guitar was, in fact, a guitar or someone screaming through some effects. I remember wondering if people were allowed to write songs like that. Were you allowed to have a spoken word section like that in a song? ‘If you plant a demon seed, you’ll raise a flower of fire’ What the fuck does that even mean? The image in my head is still there from that lyric. This whole album blew my child mind back in the day, but this song especially; crammed perfectly between ‘With or Without You’, a ballad, and ‘Running to Stand Still’ a soft song about a heroin addict. This is where it all began for me. This is ground zero.
Rest My Chemistry by Interpol
tired of yourself and all of your creations
Song by Greyhands
I maked a song recording.
You should listen to it. Please?
