Spleen and Ideal - Dead Can Dance [1985]

Ancient religious evensong and Lisa Gerrard's glossolalic forays into antique incomprehension. Like some immense home cinema in a cathedral. The Goth stops here.

Fabulous album, their best IMO. I remember interviewing them on its release ('85) in a decrepid tower block on the Isle Of Dogs in London. Or rather I remember interviewing Brendan; Lisa hid in the bedroom.

Hi David,

Glad you dropped by. Trust all's well.
