Good day inmates!

Hope you are all having a crazily good day! I’ve been listening to some pretty creepy music recently. I think my family have been quite worried. Disturbing songs like “JACK” by the Tiger Lillies or “Old Black Clown” by the Edgar Allen Poets. The former is quite noticeably disturbing with dark imagery, mad vocals and shrieking strings scratching against your brain. I’d recommend it to anybody who likes dark music and anybody who enjoys the Tiger Lillies. The latter is quite sad sounding, yet surprisingly normal if you were to ignore the lyrics. The lyrics paint quite a disturbing picture, if you think about them. Really quite marvelous! As it happens, the Edgar Allen Poets are on this list today.

I also hear that it is World Poetry Day today.ย  I hope that is correct! Haha!ย What a wonderful idea. I also hope that everyone is getting their cute little poet hats on today. I’m sure I’ll be reading plenty of great poems today as i stalk around WordPress some. Here, i have a little something for you today, before we get into the music.

As i sit alone
The music comes with ideas
Of madness and fun

There’s my minor contribution for now. Haha! Now, join me as we delve into the musical minds of terrific artists the world over!

Fracx – In Your Memory

Edgar Allen Poets – Old Black Clown

Day One – Horizon

The Cog is Dead – The Death of the Cog

The Clockwork Quartet – The Doctor’s Wife

Well, there you go for another time! I hope you enjoyed chapter 8 of the Harlequins writing music. I hope you enjoy these bands! Let me know what you thought of these magnificent artists. Perhaps they are not so magnificent to you? Let me know! I love to hear different opinions.

Check back next time for chapter 9! Have a very crazy day my friends!

  1. Loving the Edgar Allan Poets! Have you heard of/ listened to Vernian Process? One of the original Steam Punk bands. I’d check them out – some of his earlier stuff is available on free download. Cheers.

      Great, aren’t they? I’ve heard of Vernian Process but i haven’t listened to them yet. Any songs you’d recommend?

      The Oldschool Harlequin

      • Their last release, “Behold the Machine’, is excellent, but try to find a version containing the track ‘Her Clockwork Heart’, as I don’t think they all did – it’s worth the effort. The earlier material is mostly instrumental, but great for inspiration – try out ‘The Forgotten Age’. I would suggest that they were amongst the earliest exponents of this genre. Enjoy!

        Alright! I will most certainly give them a listen. Thank you my friend. Much appreciated!

    Wow! Really like the E.A. Poets (what poet could resist?). Music is great although when I was growing up listening to the love & peace stuff, never would have suspected I’d like this too ๐Ÿ™‚
