I believe

February 2, 2014

Last night’s concert was great, truly ecstatic. But it’s not all classical around here. There’s a need for other music too. And here’s something special. I was very late to this, but Talk Talk’s last two records as you probably know, are astonishing. Meditative, thoughtful, exploratory. It’s a great journey from the uplifting It’s My Life to this, I Believe in You. I can see why Mark Hollis stopped making records – stupid bloody music industry and it’s uncanny knack to dis-enchant the wizards – but it’s a shame as I suspect the record he would make now would be revelatory. Music does not belong to youth. Youth makes an invigorated version, but it’s only one jerky version of the dream.
