I have nothing to contribute other than to say I'd like to hear this when it's finished.

linus wrote:'up for a bit' has some voices on it, sort of in the mix, particularly on the fade out... but rather than a girl it sounds like stephen... do you mean in amongst the maelstrom of sound that is 'baby honey', there's that american sounding girl that says 'it's really groovy' toward the end?

you've really got me trying to figger out which song you mean, ian, I sort of know what you mean but I was listening to 'up for a bit with...' this morning and I carn't identify it
ah, i've probably misremembered it then. maybe it's stephen after all. there's definitely one song that has someone declaiming something, much in the way isobel would on some b&s songs. i always thought that's what gave b&s the idea.

Ooberman - Shorley Wall

With the final poem :

Like a broken arrow, I'll catch the tail wind and draw the clouds, burning sugar, as black as smoke, closing walls; I open my heart. She sings when she hurts. It's good to sink deep inside, to my only touchstone. She's a friend in the dark, my strength, my memories. She delights in torture, but she holds my hand and never shields me. Because the best shield is to accept the pain, then what can really destroy me? Let me close my eyes and lie invisible, and perhaps the clouds will pass through me.

Ooh I love (sorry) that Cinerama song, "I love..." First heard that on John Peel's show. Another lovely song with a girl talking which I first heard thanks to Peel is "boy, girl dependence" by Khaya which was released on SL records in '97. If it's good enough for him it's gotta be good for the tape. I think someone else mentioned the Shangri-Las - "I Can Never Go Home Anymore" is the track that comes to mind.

Alison Statton talks some interesting garble on Eating Noddemix by Young Marble Giants.

I fucking love that song.
Is there love in the sound of a closing door?

Message Personnel by Françoise Hardy? Maybe not my favourite of her work but it has loads of talking at the start.

saint etienne-teenage winter

"Mums with pushchairs outside Sainsbury's
Tears in their eyes
They'll never buy a Gibb Brothers record again
Their old 45s gathering dust
The birthday cards they couldn't face throwing away"
