“OFF THE PEG AND ON THE SHELF” (ANOTHER SPOTIFY PLAYLIST)


Things kick off with the crackling firewood of Thee Silver Mt. Zion's campfire spell of solidarity, before venturing through Can's hurtling freneticism, as insistent and sense-defying as a fever dream, the frenzied avant-Dada discordant punk of the Cravats (pictured), the seething emnity emanated by Hole, the sublime trance-grooves of Om (I really wanted the track 'Meditation is the Practice of Death' but alas that wasn't Spotifyable), before culminating with the terrible grandeur and primal savagery of Current 93. Singing about the end of everything. Or how the end of everything was sewn at the beginning. Or something like that anyway.

“I am the dreg, I am myself
I'm off the peg and on the shelf”
