    RIP to the very talented David Berman.

    He had a lyrical style quite unlike anybody else. Very sombre and poetic, but incredibely funny at times too. Fantastic, baritone sort of a voice too, that really made you pay attention. He just released a new album about a month ago after something like a decade plus hiatus, and it was really good. Just a very unique and talented frontman who unfortunately seems to have succumbed to his demons in the end.



    "In 1984 I was hospitalised for approaching perfection" remains the greatest opening line of any album, ever.


    Fuck. Gutted.

    Bright Flight and American Water are both near perfect records. As you say an incredible lyricist, and by all accounts a brilliant man.

    Have you heard the new Richard Dawson album? I believe it was you who put me onto him with (the excellent) Peasant. I think I might actually like this new one more though.

    Nope, I'll check it out this week. Just seen he's playing near me next week and tickets are gone. Fuck's sake.

    If you can get into Glastonbury hidden in a laundry basket, you can get into that.

    You need a man on the inside for that sort of thing. My mates aren't cool enough to be into Richard Dawson.

    Whilst we're on this sort of music I recently discovered '69 Love Songs', the 1999 marathon from Magnetic Fields. Adore (most of) it.

    Yeah it's really great. Their other stuff is worth a listen, especially 100000 fireflies, all the umbrellas in london and smoke and mirrors.

    Felt a bit bland this time round, I thought.

    A mate just sent me a video from a Richard Dawson fella. I knew the name (thought he was a Brexit politician) but never heard a Ďsongí before. I think itís the worst thing Iíve ever listened to, and I donít even limit that to music.

    I think that song is a really beautiful portrait of someone suffering from mental illness in 2019. I also really like the way he sings "beta blockers" in his Geordie accent.

    I saw him live the other week and he really is a legend. Probably one of the best people in the England.

    I thought the issue people might have with that song is he's very direct in his lyrics and delivery on it.

    For something less on the nose check out Scientist off his previous album. That one is about when a strange man comes to the village you live in 7th century Northumberland and tries to install a new device he's invented in your temple, but you don't want him to.

    Actually that one is even "noisier", but he definitely does some singing on it.
