Derek Jarman's films pretty much define clear-eyed prescience -- especially Jubilee. And the best part has to be Jordan as Amyl Nitrate singing (shreiking? wailing?) uh, the anthemic "Rule Britannia". (Jordan apparently, in addition to working at a fetish shop in Brighton, occasionally performed with Adam and the Ants.)
[Small editorial aside from Pinkie: Contrary to our speculation that Jordan, née Pamela Rooke, may have met with a bad end, we were pleased to find that Wikipedia, among other sources, states that Ms. Rooke is now a veterinary nurse and a noted breeder of Burmese cats. But we do suppose that cat breeding, in its obvious absurdity, is a pretty iconoclastic avocation.]
It's always nice to find another April Stevens fan, seriously -- especially one as nearly giddy as he was when I mentioned her iconic cult album Teach Me Tiger... Now then, perhaps my treasured vinyl copy of that LP will materialize from the aether. (Winning back cover copy: 'she sings like her throat is full of angora sweaters...')
April Stevens -- Teach Me Tiger
(And check out the rollicking duet "I've Been Carrying A Torch For You So Long That I Burned A Great Big Hole In My Heart" performed with her brother Nino Tempo over at Domino Rally)
Must dash for now, but I'm thinking of you. Really!
