Belfegore
"Tod durch die Blume"

So, like, this post was already scheduled for today, but I hadn't done the little write-up yet. So what does one of my fellow blogger buddies do? He makes the whole dang album his feature for yesterday! THE NERVE!

This song, however, does not appear in his post, other than as a mention. HA!

So, anyhow, we got Belfegore's second, eponymous album at my college radio station, and I dug it. The single, All That I Wanted, sounded like Killing Joke ripping off The Stooges' TV Eye. On top of that, it had a video that I thought was actually pretty cool and unsettling (please, see below) (unless you're blind, that is) (or your monitor isn't working) (or you're just stupid) (or you're trying to deliberately hurt my feelings) (meanie).

So, my buddy Mike did some checking and found out they'd released an LP, a 7" EP, and a 12" single prior to the eponymous album. Of course, this meant that I had to purchase all three. While I think the second album is stronger, overall, A Dog Is Born definitely has some worthy material. Like . . . today's song!

Umm...I'm really very sorry?
Well you are the kid who keeps dissing on goth - how was I to know you had this in mind?

There's no need to apologize! I still called you my buddy, didn't I?

I was just being silly.

I hope I've not offended you in the past with my little digs at Goth! It's all in fun, and I really do like a decent amount of stuff that would be classified either Goth or proto-Goth.

I'm just being silly too. In fact I'll have you know I hold a Masters degree in Applied Silliness.

I guess Biki is with my boy friend in the "This Sounds Like The Munsters on Crack" school of thought then.
