I think last night (well, the night before and she did), Kristin Hersh broke a guitar string while entertaining the heck out of me. I wonder how she doesn't break a vocal cord. Her voice is a plaintive sad thing one second and a rasping hair-raiser the next. She was on awesome form, Your Ghost made me cry, and the McCarricks were the icing on the cake because the Strings EP is just wonderful.
Many years ago, I stood at the ts in Virgin on the corner of Oxford Street and Tottenham Court Road and fingered Hunkpapa and dared myself to buy it because I had heard Dizzy on the radio: I didn't and I feel quite bad about that. And how I would have impressed Andy if I had had.
