Trash/Thrash Tuesday: Death in June – “Fall Apart”

Greetings friends.  Did you have a nice holiday weekend celebrating the rape and genocide of our First Nations at the hands of white colonialism?  Did you build a little Jesus n the cross out of mashed potatoes and pour your Mom’s gravy directly into your mouth?  Pants bursting open from a few too many slices of pumpkin pie?  Well boo boo, I got you.

HI MOM

I’ve been feeling a bit hazy this past weekend I’m not sure if it’s from the cold I have and the cold medicine I’m all fucked up on or if it’s from all the Girl Scout Cookies weed I’ve been smoking lately, or from the foggy creepy distinctly fall weather.  Regardless, I’ve been listening to WAY too much neofolk music and I’ve really rekindled my love for Death in June.  It’s funny that this happened close to the announcement of their upcoming concert at the Rickshaw Theatre in Vancouver on November 26, 2015.  I’m hoping beyond all hope to do some coverage of the show.  More on this later.

This is one of my favourite Death in June tracks, and you can say whatever you like about the band, but this music really goes well with a cup of black coffee and this desolate October.

So although this music may not be something to THRASH to, it counts this week as a Thrash for me.  If you don’t like neofolk, you’re dead to me.

And if I wake from Dreams
Shall I fall in Pastures
Will I Wake the Darkness
Shall we Torch the Earth?
And if I wake from Dreams
Shall we find the Emptiness
And break the Silence
That will stop our Hearts?
And if I wake from Dreams
Shall we cry Together
For their Howling echoes
And restart the Night?

And why did you say
That things shall fall
And fall and fall and fall
And fall apart?

And shall I wake from Dreams
For the Glory of Nothing
For the cracking of the Sun
For the crawling down of Lies?
And if We fall from Dreams
Shall we push them into Darkness
And stare into the Howling
And clamber into Night?
And if I fall from Dreams
All my Prayers are Silenced
To Love is to lose
And to lose is to Die…

And why did you say
That things shall fall
And fall and fall and fall
And fall apart?
