feeling postscript


Excepter, Alternation (5 Rue Christine)

Not like the other stuff I've heard by them; kinda like when Royal Trux would do the odd tune that was their stab at Cabaret Voltaire/Suicide

almost feeling

Panic! At the Disco, "I Write Sins Not Tragedies"

The Associates of emo?* Can't decide if that would make them even worse than regular emo, or much, much better, but leaning ever so slightly towards the latter. Swoony, bruised-fruity, over-ripe, over-arranged, verbose, etc. Enjoyed the lyric that goes on about
"poisoned rationality" and really quite disappointed to realise on the sixth viewing of the video that it's actually "poise and rationality."

* Panic! at the Disco actually sounds like an Associates-type emotion/mise-en-scene., doesn't it? Or song title c.f. "Party Fears Two". Or even an imaginary genre --panic-disco. That's a perfect descriptive for "Club Country", "Nude Spoons", "Skipping" et al. The fact that they're obviously Smiths fans is even better if you think about what "William It Was Really Nothing" is supposedly about. And blimey their album's called A Fever You Can't Sweat Out and they're on a label called Decaydance--how Billy McKenzoid is that.
