Sorrow (Rose McDowell) Megapost

O Rose thou art sick.
The invisible worm,
That flies in the night
In the howling storm:

Has found out thy bed
Of crimson joy:
And his dark secret love
Does thy life destroy.

-William Blake, "The Sick Rose"

Beautiful, intimate, and autumnal dark folk from one half of Strawberry Switchblade, probably better known to readers here as the prime Current 93/ Coil/ Death in June/ Psychic TV nexus backing chanteuse. Such an immaculate voice! Few songs are truly as great as "Let There Be Thorns."

Under The Yew Possessed (Piski Disk, 1993)


Sleep Now Forever (Piski Disk, 1999)


Let There Be Thorns EP (Piski Disk, 2001)

(front & back vinyl because they look better than the CD cover, for you geeks out there this is probably actually the CD version I'm uploading)
