Sunnydale Noise Subelement

Going to gigs with Siouxie, Page 6Sound a lot like a moment in time being deconstructed, reconstructed, revisited in detail, spun around, panned around, moved through, taken from its context and repeated until it has not meaning except what it is. Alternatively like a light artifact on a lens pulled out of its two-dimensional state and rotated partially against a sky blue background, repeatedly, while the extra light artifacts it created spun crazy in a flat sky. Alternatively, like standing ankle-deep in stone while bright foil shuddered at a bisecting point just below the eyes, hands pushing through folded/folding metal. Eeebleee broke their amp.

When I got home, I scanned this week's strip.

Wasn't I supposed to be coming to see Eeblee? Oh well - I guess today's 6am start would have pissed all over that.

Anyway. How much is Siouxie a rhetorical alternate self...? Or is that just a stupid question?

it's not a stupid question at all, actually
... and I'm afraid you didn't miss much with Eeebleee. After a great couple of tracks at the outset (green fletch/light/dust-puff/dappled shade/running beat/swimming pool/flash cubes), it all went a bit goth (the front man's started singing a lot more recently and unfortunately about redemption and souls and stuff like that) and at the end of one of the new tracks he suddenly started throwing himself around the stage area and onto the floor, doing forward rolls and jumps -- and at the end of the song rather shamefacedly admitted that he had "broken everything" ... it was quite fun, but probably not in the way they intended. They're on at the weekend anyway, I think.

Siouxie's actually the star of my new comic book, which is called The Pillow Book of Siouxie Shogun, but I'm having problems with it. With her. How she looks, her motivations, what she thinks about things. I don't know her as well as I need to. So I wrote a strip where I met her at a gig and we got to know each other. I'm not sure I really got anywhere with it, though -- for every new thing I discovered, I raised another twenty questions. I have a horrible feeling that she's going to be one of those fractal characters you never really manange to draw to your satisfaction.

(how many E's do these people need, for Heaven's sake?)

I did like the Sunnydale Support, though - Extreme Noise Terror in an atmosphere thick with Patchouli and Sandalwood. Excellent.

Re: Eeeeebleeeee...
three at each end.

Yeah, they were good. Much better than when I last saw them, too.

Re: Eeeeebleeeee...
three? that's just silly. They need no more than two, and that's all they're getting from me.
