Genius at work...

(any excuse to post something about Michael Gira)

...I think that apart from the fact that he writes some great songs and constructs marvellous music with the help of some fine musicians, the other factor is that he has really lived a real turbulent life in his earlier years and also worked really hard in countless shite jobs whilst being in total poverty and has been in some very unsavoury predicaments in his life, but it all adds to his whole spectrum of life experience which has fed and continues to feed his creativity....the range of emotions in every stage of his recorded output through the years is truly dynamic, he also has a great grasp of experimenting with sound and bringing the best out of the folks he works with too... plus he has an incredible voice!
