DULCIMER - AND I TURNED AS I HAVE TURNED AS A BOY


01. sonnet to the fall
02. pilgrim from the city
03. morman's casket
04. ghost of the wandering minstrel boy
05. gloucester city
06. starlight
07. caravan
08. lisa's song
09. time in my life
10. fruit of the musical tree
11. while it lasted
12. suzanne

pete hodge, jem north, dave eaves
poetry spoken by richard todd

sonnet to the fall
the year as a cycle
has now taken its turn
first corner winter
showed its pale face
then hid behind a cloud
second corner spring
promethean flame
ran ignited candled chestnut trees to flower
summer's staff
of thirteen bars
has played
erased
forgotten
fourth corner autumn
heralds the coming winter
and while his golden trumpet blast
looks and leaps to corners deep
three sons of fall
the first to leaf
the next to light
the last will hide
as if in fright
and wait until
his chance is right
to freeze the life
its self to gold
then leaves to cry
so sad
so cold

recorded on stage at the cryptic one / london nov. 11, 1978.

the time of the cryptic one gig was a very important time for all the industrial scene alltogether. all the interested parties were there that night. people and groups that have since become infamous against the hard core underground scene.
it was an electric night, very alive and thumping energy from wall to wall and from roof to well below ground. a great shift and a great surge forward happened that night.... suffice it to say it was special in MANY many ways to all the people who attended.

john micah rapp wrote and recorded a song every day, for six months. the results range from charming and introspective to looming numbers layered with distorted samples and gritty bass lines. instead of a feeling of alienation or loneliness, these songs carry a sense of wonder and excitement for the unknown. there’s no doubt rapp successfully explored every nook and cranny of home recording, while unintentionally documenting six months of his life within the 150+ tracks that came out of the project.

'catharsis' is AD's favorites from these sessions combined on two 60 min tapes. Initial pressing of only 30 copies is available now at:

music from the 1985 film by derek jarman

sweet love, renew thy force; be it not said
thy edge should blunter be than appetite,
which but to-day by feeding is allay'd,
to-morrow sharpen'd in his former might:
so, love, be thou; although to-day thou fill
thy hungry eyes even till they wink with fullness,
to-morrow see again, and do not kill
the spirit of love with a perpetual dullness.
let this sad interim like the ocean be
which parts the shore, where two contracted new
come daily to the banks, that, when they see
return of love, more blest may be the view;
else call it winter, which being full of care
makes summer's welcome thrice more wish'd, more rare."

sonnett 59, william shakespeare
