I am VERY excited about this trailer for Scott Walker and Sunn O)))’s new project.

I have been distracted/in transit the last couple months and have irresponsibly let this tumblr fall by the wayside during this rare period of actual Scott news. Sorry about that, but nonetheless I am VERY excited about this record and I hope you are too.

I mean, maybe it’s not the dance record we’ve all been waiting for but… well, maybe it is. Soused!

"As Arnold points out, there is an otherwise inexplicable shift in direction in the Piccadilly line passing east out of South Kensington. “In fact,” she writes, “the tunnel curves between Knightsbridge and South Kensington stations because it was impossible to drill through the mass of skeletal remains buried in Hyde Park.” I will admit that I think she means “between Knightsbridge and Hyde Park Corner”—although there is apparently a “small plague pit dating from around 1664” beneath Knightsbridge Green—but I will defer to Arnold’s research.

But to put that another way, the ground was so solidly packed with the interlocked skeletons of 17th-century victims of the Great Plague that the Tube’s 19th-century excavation teams couldn’t even hack their way through them all. The Tube thus had to swerve to the side along a subterranean detour in order to avoid this huge congested knot of skulls, ribs, legs, and arms tangled in the soil—an artificial geology made of people, caught in the throat of greater London."

Poets' Tree


I made this in 2008 - it’s written by Kevin Eldon and Stewart Lee, and has Kevin (as Paul Hamilton, the Islington poet, Steve Pemberton and Olivia Colman in it.

I had no idea they were repeating it, but it’s great, give it a listen.
