Pista: socalnewwaver: i have very mixed feelings about this track. it's on of my fave DS tracks, from one of my fave DS albums. really hard for me to wrap my head around, because i absolutely adore DS/MK. like borderline stan kind of adoration.

I have sacrosanct songs.
Covers of The Cure's A Forest always set me on edge for example.
I think I've heard about two dozen & only about 3 have done it justice


I feel the same way about any Siouxsie covers. I think there's been 2 that I liked, and the rest make me want to curl up in a ball in the corner and cry.

Pista: When I saw Japan do this on the Old Grey Whistle Test I think I held my breath for nearly 4 minutes


for such a slow track, it's pretty intense. see also: closer by NIN.

Thank you for a little David S - a calm tune to soothe the current chaos.

I'm a big fan of Japan.  Would have loved to see them live.

Here, audio proof! Live on the air in, oh geez, 1996? Maybe 1995. I've lost my notes.

Engineered by Brian MacDonald (and maybe Jake Anderson helped out.)

Special guest star!

The Roswell Incident live on MERV GRIFFIN 2000

I can't actually think of any covers of Siouxsie songs off the top of my head.


There was one of those Cleopatra compilations of Siouxsie covers years ago. Collide's version of Obsession is actually really good. Sadly the Switchblade Symphony cover of Night Shift, was not.

The 12" single of A Forest is one of my most treasured pieces of vinyl.


I hear you. Mine will never come out of its clear plastic sleeve

djslowdive: I hope everyone had a good weekend. Just sitting here chilling :)


I did. Got invited to play pool at my mate's pub & helped finish off his palinka.
Then got home & baked.
Bonus: Didn't burn the house down

Going to have to put digitizing my Alan Parson Project vinyl on hold for a couple hours to tune in...

I'm digitizing all the vinyl I have, without judgement.
