We Having A Party...A Political Party!
The title of this post is a line from a song (go figure). I kid, I kid, it's actually from the Harry Potter novel, where he drops acid and moves to the factory town of Manchester, where he has a bugged out dreams of caped magicians. Both instances are true... true enough! The line is from the song "The House that Faded Out", which I am not including on this post. Humorous isn't it? Well, the song is by a group called Blue Orchids, which features cast-aways from The Fall. Before you start comparing these bands, realize that they are vastly different. These guys, Blue Orchids, are going for a post-punk psychedelic thing. Whereas The Fall is darker and more coarse, a more effective expression of "post" punk. Whatever the case, these bands are different. Finally, as George Micheal said "listen without prejudice". I guess he didn't say it as much as sing it.....Blue Orchids "A Darker Bloom"
