Black Arts Diary
A grimoire of the lucid, lame and ridiculous, mostly passing memes that catch my fancy.

You like Joy Division, Anton? Then I can brag that I saw them live one afternoon in Liverpool many years ago. I was about 17 and I found Ian Curtis pretty disturbing. I distinctly remember climbing the stairs out of the cellar club afterwards and blinking in the sunlight, still freaked out by his epileptic dancing. What got me was that voice, the nylon shirt and the quivering cheeks. So uncool he was beyond cool, though neither he nor we really understood it at the time.
Your neighbour in Heverlee.
Wow, not a bad live performance to have seen! Unfortunately, not a band I was likely to hear on the radio in South Africa in the late 70s, let alone see perform live. The horrors we had to endure before YouTube!
