Gone Girl

This single from March 1996, from David Holmes' first album This Film's Crap Let's Slash The Seats, is an absolute beaut. Jazzy, early hours of the morning, downtempo vibe, drums played with the brushes, stand up double bass and the lovely vocals of St Etienne's Sarah Cracknell, especially the 'you can never go home anymore' line. There were two 12" singles and a couple of cd singles with a load of remixes as well, but the original mix is hard to beat.

Loving your choice of music and images as ever. Are the images from a particular photographer or source ?

Egon Schielle. I can see the tag clearly now.

The images come from all over the internet, various places. I like the,ahem, juxtaposition of people from the early to mid 20th c with music from the late 20th to 21st. Something about it that appeals to me.
