SIMON FISHER TURNER "The Last of England" (UK, 1987)

The soundtrack for Derek Jarman’s 1987 film “The Last of England”. The film* depicts Jarman’s personal vision of descenting into chaos England, a vision both apocalyptic and lyrical, and Turner’s music (with the contribution of several others, including Mayo Thompson, Barry Adamson, Diamanda Galas and Andy Gill) creates the sounds of this vision.

Το divshare έκανε κάποια κόλπα τις τελευταίες μέρες, αλλά η προσμονή άξιζε τον κόπο. Κάθε δευτερόλεπτο, θα έλεγα. Μου έφτιαξε η διάθεση, παρά το θλιμμένο κλίμα όλου του σάουντρακ... Αν και.. Ατυχής έκφραση αυτή περί διάθεσης, όμως πως αλλιώς να δηλώσω το τι μου ήρθε στο μυαλό ακούγοντάς το. Έχει την ξεχωριστή αξία ενος τοπίου/θέματος/προσώπου που μπορεί απλά να το συναντάς/προσπερνας/χαιρετάς κάθε μερα, ώσπου.. κάποια στιγμή διαπιστώνεις κάτι το απίστευτα όμορφο σε αυτό. Και τότε λες: "πως μου ξέφυγε αυτή η μαγεία?"
