Molars - Blood Brothers - Ladies and Gentlemen

ADDITIONAL CONTRIBUTORS Biology of the Blogger

Blood Brothers were the best at spinning out high-horror songs, like “Ladies and Gentlemen,” or “Crimes” or “Giant Swan” (maybe the best example). Formulas for evoking despair and disgust. So many of their songs remind me of that one scene in Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man when Stephen’s going through his most fucked up period, and he wallows through that fever dream where he sees long-tailed goatish creatures, covered in stale shit, walking in a field, whining and moaning. Most of the ‘plots’ of Blood Brothers’ songs are a lot like that: revolting, but vivid and impressive.
