Something Beautiful 11

Love Siouxsie’s dancing…

… I first heard this album (Eldorado (below) by ELO) when I was 17, 41 years ago, it was, literally, a mind-altering experience for me…

… fabulous song/gorgeous video (The Killers, below)…

… love surf rock, love the Bambi Molesters, who are from Croatia… I am from Wanganui, New Zealand, and was kind of astonished when they did a song called ‘Wanganui’, so looked it up, only to discover that it was, literally, about my home town… it was a homage to a 1950’s rock and roll film about Wanganui!…

  1. Are you sure it was 47 years ago? Not maybe 37? I saw Siouxie and the Banshees many times in London around 1976-77, I still love Hong Kong Garden, the Staircase etc etc

    • Ha!… actually, it was 41 years ago (: I’ll edit that. And, just in case we’re not on the same page here, I’m talking about ELO’s Eldorado, not Siouxsie.

      • Still, you made me realise I’d made myself 6 years older… which would be awesome, because it would mean I could retire, but, sadly, would also mean I was 6 years older. Numbers are not my friends.
