Threshold House Boy



i guess i've been out about a week now though really it's been 2 weeks and i'm still not entirely conscious...but first time out of bed today for 8 days of halfsleep and viral delirium and 2 square meal per week with only bits of Exorcist 3*, The Story Of O, Bret Easton Ellis, Swayze/Herzog Classics, Fight Clubs and Disinformation books for company (amazing how much sense they make as internal temperature oscillates between Napalm burning and Absolute Elsewhere - never really bothered to read em before; great fun!!)...

*exorcist three is really good and has the best creepy nothing-happens-in-a-late-night-hospital-ward-for-just-a-little-too-long scene ever

so, been ill, only to find my blog's been overrun by cheapshot solarflares and nudie rudeys - excellent!! just how i imagined it in my feverish dreamstates and very definitely required....

just figured you guys needed a little solar class...

the music today comes from the Coil tribute 2CD from Russia which i was too scared to order but the very kind Cloudboy copied for me.... it's mostly rather blankverse, as you'd expect and occasionally willfully distressing (to miss the point is one thing but the whole pencil?) but there are glimpses of beautiful chaos in amongst the goth churns and deep throated men and sable-haired priestesses etc etc...

one is this one:

The Threshold House Boy's Choir - Mahil Athal Nadrach

A sordid Yousendit Confection


which begins like a Moon's Milk alter(c)ation, walks off into vaguely Rugrats/True Romance soundtracking forms, bursts into brief life as the theme tune to the Scottish Tourist Board's latest attempt to sell the Highlands to Hollywood then reverses and slurs itself away into a sweet Thai Love Song with the briefest glitchy hints that makes you think it's catching you out somehow and someway you'll never recognise...

(((((oh, an the ' in "Boy's" is in the right place, apparently which i think changes the perception/direction entirely when you're trying to evoke some pics in yer skull... a Threshold HouseBoy....)))))

Haven't seen the sleevenotes or anything but there's something a little Sleazy about it...

Yea! Now there's a demi-God w/ taste. We salute you, O Mischievious One.

Great to have you back on the Norn Throne.

hahaha - odd track isn't it - with sleazy being strangley absent for the most part ... preferring the thighpaulsandra trk myself but then again i like a meaty potion of screamin'... The Threshold Boys trk was apparently performed in Russia over Christmas with a backing film of self-mutilation whether this throws any more light on the matter i don't know ---- like leaves more questions - the way it should remain...

Thank you so much for posting this song. I have been reluctant to order this CD myself as the only suppliers of it are so unreliable artists who have performed on it have yet to receive a copy. My only real interest was this song. I do have to ask, is it worth ordering?
