Misery Monday 25/26 - Balloon
I've written about Balloon before here and I haven't found out much more since then, except the fact that I now know I wasn't the only person to buy the lp Gravity.
I did manage to track down 3 more tracks that I think were on a post lp single, they aren't a radical departure but if I'm being honest they aren't as magical as the 10 tracks on the lp.
The whole lp is one long misery monday but the track I've chosen is a beautifully haunting song. For some strange reason I love the line "may you rot in hell Alexander Bell"
Frighten to Death - Balloon
You can get a copy of the cd here and I'd heartily recommend it if you like fragile music with a sense of melancholic melody
Next week is the last one of misery monday which means a new monday theme is on its way....... the anticipation must be unbearable ... then again...
NB I wrote this a couple of weeks ago and since then I've stumbled on their myspace site here has some fantastic new ... ish or new ly discovered songs on . Sorry to be vague but the whole page couldn't be vaguer . New lp is mentioned , a new lp seems to have been scrapped and this was 4 years ago. If anyone has anymore luck and can share nay light drop me a line
