The Mercy Of Your Lies: Transmission 143, 2014 August 5

durutti-column-red-shoes.jpgTorn between doing an "easy" program and a great one--because greatness does not come easily to me--I opted for lazy heroism, in this lamest of all months. Still recovering from my move, which has been more painful than I care to recount right now, I reached for something in plentiful supply at Chez Catharsis [Lady C has christened the new place "The Warren," for reasons she hasn't yet shared with me]: a Durutti Column disc. It was, depending upon whom or what you believe, Vini Reilly's birthday a night or two before. "Always do your best," as the dude says.

Random notes: Brian Harris's Hawkwind cover really did get some random love in real time, which was nice; "Leaving the Physical World" really did seem a capital idea in the moment [see above]; "Maniac" was and is, on further listening, a Michael Sembello homage of a sort, and all the better for it.
