    Nuggets 173 – Morning 

    Nuggets 173 - Morning

    A mixture of slow core Galaxy 500 sounding bands, some unlikely covers and guys singing with high voices. The Joy Division cover by Bedhead is fab. I particularly like the first track by Horrid Red, a new band by members of Teenage Panzerkorps; kraut-punk with more Neu!

    I included a track from Sparklehorse which is particularly smooth – Shade and Honey. Whenever I listen to this track I idly try and work out what the song is about. I tracked the lyrics down, and fucked if know what he is singing about. Anyway, it’s a great tune. The king of skiffle, Lonnie Donegan plays us out. I will post the tracks soon.

    Shade & Honey

    I could look in your face
    For a thousand years
    It’s like a civil war
    Of pain and of cheer

    But if you was a horse
    I could help you with your chains
    I could ride you through the fields
    By your fiery mane

    May your shade be sweet
    And float upon the lakes
    Where the sun will be
    Made of honey

    I’ll cry gardens while you burn
    ‘Cause no one here can save you
    She’s returning to the Earth
    But one day she’ll be silver

    The stars are dying in my chest
    Till I see you again
    She was born with the wings of a hawk
    Where she combs her hair with blood

    May your shade be sweet
    And float upon the lakes
    Where the sun will be
    Made of honey

    May your shade be sweet
    And float upon the lakes
    Where the sun will be
    Made of honey

    May your shade be sweet
    May your shade be sweet
    And float upon the lakes…

    May your shade be sweet
