I guess Peter Murphy is limber

Three things to note about "Cuts You Up," the 1990 single off the album Deep by former Bauhaus frontman and so-called Godfather of Goth Peter Murphy:

1.  It is a good song with a good first line ("I find you in the morning / after dreams of distant signs / you pour yourself over me / like the sun through the blinds"); 

2.  The video features Murphy playing an Ovation 12-string. And while Murphy looks cooler than I did with my Celebrity 12-string, he does so only barely. Just further proof that that guitar is Cool Poison; and

3.  I'm pretty sure that's Wesley Snipes playing the electric guitar-violin thingie in the video. Always bet on black! Anyway, the pictures and music:

What's this, 120 minutes? When is the Echo video coming on? And "Here Comes Your Man"?

No Echo video just yet, but I definitely should post a Siouxsie & The Banshees video some time.

No Echo? How about Pseudo Echo at least?

Alright, alright, I'll post Funky Town!
