John Cale as Mark e. Smith? Hmmm...

A great song regardless:

JOHN CALE as Mark E. Smith? Yeah man, I could imagine more far fetched comparisons than that..!

What a great and powerful song indeed! The whole album's pretty cool. Also partial to AI (have actually been listening to those two the past two weeks or so, next will be MUSIC FOR A NEW SOCIETY..!).

This track should be currently n.1 globally...

Always thought that album was massively overlooked.

The title song is moving as hell. Always felt it was the "ghost song" of the album.

I was surprised to discover only last year that the drummer, David Lichtenstein, was the son of Roy Lichtenstein, the pop artist. (Small world, but I wouldn't want to paint it)

Yeah, it's a classic album at this point.

"Ghost song" is a good way putting it, as that track indeed has come back haunting me several times after listening the album..!

Small world indeed, good catch! Funnily enough, I've been listening to the two Alan Vega albums concurrently with the Cale's... Just realized!

I started it at "Magazines". But "Model Beirut Recital" follows.

Dave Lichtenstein, man: The guy's ripped like Dolph Lundgren.
