Garden Of Love

There's a lot of good new stuff around right now- must be record labels warming up for spring or something. This is hot off the press/file converter, a new song from French duo The Liminanas with whispered vocals, a lovely picked out melody line and 60s beatnik style. Oh, and Peter Hook's beautiful, brilliant bass playing. I love this right now. What more can we ask for? Fits in very well with yesterday's Unloved song too.

Garden Of Love is also a poem by William Blake from Songs Of Experience. A bit of poetry for your Thursday...

I went to the Garden of Love,
And saw what I never had seen:
A Chapel was built in the midst,
Where I used to play on the green.

And the gates of this Chapel were shut,
And Thou shalt not. writ over the door;
So I turn'd to the Garden of Love,
That so many sweet flowers bore. 

And I saw it was filled with graves,
And tomb-stones where flowers should be:
And Priests in black gowns, were walking their rounds,
And binding with briars, my joys & desires.

I like The Liminanas a lot and keep meaning to feature them myself. The Hooky bass line compliments this new tune well.

As Blake would say, really fuckin' good.
