... about Erase the World:
1. The poetry of the writing. Check his evocation of Yorkshire, for instance. I was all-but packing my bags...
2. The existential fixation on death.
3. The willingness to buck fashion and defend the indefensible. I wholeheartedly agree about Manilow's 'Mandy' (and while I find charitable thoughts towards Westlife quite beyond me, if we have to put up with them picking young girls' pockets, it might as well be with a song that it isn't actually physically intolerable).Posted by mark at December 7, 2003 12:52 AM | TrackBack
