David Lynch’s Discreet Atmospheres Of Dark And Troubling Things

•April 11, 2018 • Leave a Comment

Neighbours, a little audio gift for you; being a vertiginous and dreamlike suite of drones, tones, asymmetrical musics, dialogue and sound design from the work of David Lynch…

“Every time I hear sounds, I see pictures. Then, I start getting ideas. It just drives me crazy.”

– David Lynch

“Music can conjure up such wonderful emotions.”

Yep, those Kool Kats at Rhino Stew Productions have created the game you’ve ALL been waiting for: “Help raise your words per minute with the only software that’s wild at heart and weird on the top, David Lynch Teaches Typing”

Which… does exactly what it says on the tin… O and there’s even coffee break… that segues into a strange and troubling dream…

“There’s always music in the air…” #4: ‘Rabbit Snare’ by Throbbing Gristle

•February 12, 2018 • Leave a Comment

Fourth in a continuing series of posts highlighting Lynchian sounds and musics (as defined by The Double R Club and I) that may have flown under the radar of many and which perhaps one might even imagine appearing at The Roadhouse in some future, imaginary episode…

A rare ostentatiously jazzy outing for these northern industrial pioneers, from the opening disjointed noodling piano, to the disturbing cries of Cosey Fanni Tutti’s cornet and the slowed, magadon bass tones, this torch song from another place creeps and crawls its way into your head, inch by terrible inch.

The song stands as a kind of strange and disconcerting song of false love and coercion, with Genesis P-Orridge drunkenly crooning “Why are you scared? Do you love me? Why are you scared?” growing in oddity and sinister influence with “Dare you love me. Is this insidious? Is this inside of us? Simply insidious. Simply insidious. Kind of ridiculous.”

Echoes of BOB’s voice in Laura’s head…?

From the band’s penultimate album Part Two: The Endless Not, the song could perhaps be a spiritual sequel to their classic ‘Persuasion’ which includes P-Orridge’s voice influencing a young girl to pose for pornographic pictures: “Do it because I tell you. Do it because I love you. And I persuade you” and which includes the infamous lyric “I’ve got a little biscuit tin, to keep your panties in” -shades of Laura in Flesh World magazine…?

Lyrics:

Why are you scared?
Do you love me?
Why are you scared?
Are you scared?
Are you scared?
Why dare you love me?
Dare you love me
Is this insidious?
Is this inside of us?
Simply insidious
Simply insidious
Kind of ridiculous
Do you love me?
Why are you scared?
Do you love me?
Why are you scared?
Dare you to love me?
Dare that you love me
Is this insidious?
Simply insidious
Kind of ridiculous
Simply insidious
Simply insidious
Simply insidious
Kind of ridiculous
