Well That was the week that was…alright!

LIFE HAS TURNED INTO BRAVE NEW WORLD SOMEWHAT I WELL REMEMBER READING THE CLASSIC AT 15. WELL WHAT A FEW WEEKS WE HAVE HAD. AS YOU MAY KNOW I HAVE BEEN INTO UFO’S ALL MY LIFE HAVING SEEN MANY. ONE SPRINGS TO MIND THAT WENT VERY SLOWLY THEN DARTED IN A HAPHAZARD DIRECTION THAT I SAW IN 1993 IN SOMERSET (AS DEPICTED IN THE PASTEL PICTURE OF ME ON THIS SITE FROM 1995) AND THEN IN 2016 ON A PLANE (RATHER LIKE THE CLASSIC TWILIGHT ZONE – NOBODY ELSE SAW BUT I GOT TO MY DESTINATION JUST FINE!) I SAW FROM THE PLANE A BRIGHTER THAN THE SUN GROUP OF LIGHTS FROM LOWER BENEATH ME FROM THE GRAND CANYON. IN 2012 RENOWNED UFOLOGIST ANTHONY J HILDER (HIS MUSIC WAS IN THE FILM PULP FICTION WITH HIS BAND THE VENTURES) CALLED ME TO TELL ME UFO’S IN MY BOOKS ABOUT THE VRIL WERE NOT CONSPIRACY THEORIES BUT WERE REAL – HE HAD MET NASA WHISTLEBLOWERS….HE DIED SOON AFTER SO OUR MEETING IN PERSON NEVER HAPPENED AS HE WANTED NOT IN CALIFORNIA BUT GLASTONBURY WHERE HE USED TO VISIT TO UFO SPOT FROM THE TOR. SO TO SEE FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY THAT A GOVERNMENT HAS DISCLOSED THAT WE ARE ARE NOT ALONE IS MOMENTOUS ONE WONDERS IF ANY OF THOSE BEAUTIFUL CROP CIRCLES WERE REAL AFTER ALL? AFTER A UNPRECEDENTED YEAR ON A LEVEL WITH THE GREAT WARS… THE COVID PANDEMIC SURE SET US ON A UNIQUE PATH. AS LENNON SAID “STRANGE DAYS INDEED…UFO’S OVER NEW YORK…”

THE LYRICS REFLECT THOSE STRANGE DAYS BUT NO STRANGE SIGHTS CAN MATCH SOME OF THE ONES WE HAVE SEEN THIS PAST YEAR!
I HAVE BEEN WRITING A LOT OF FUTURISTIC POEMS AND WHEN I SAW THIS I THOUGHT IT DOES REFLECT A NEW GARY NUMAN REALITY AS TO WHERE WE ARE RIGHT NOW WHICH LEADS ME TO THIS NEW RECORD WHICH MUCH AS I DO LIKE DID LEAD ME TO LAUGH BECAUSE IF IT WAS MATT BERRY HE WOULD PROBABLY WANT TO BE CALLED “GARY CUREMAN” !! I RECOMMEND THE CURE’S “A FOREST” AFTER THIS FOLLOWED BY GARY NUMANS’S “COMPLEX”!
NICE TO HEAR THE AUTHOR HIMSELF BUT FOR THE DRAMA ITSELF JUST GET UP TOMORROW WE ARE HERE…PERHAPS…
MY EXPERIENCE WASNT QUITE LIKE THIS! AN ABSOLUTE CLASSIC…
IN 2013 I HAD SOME CORRESPONDENCE WITH RICHARD D HALL WHO LIKE DAVID ICKE IS VERY UNIQUE IN HIS UFO VIEWS. IF HIS VIEWS ARE TRUE THEN WHAT WE SEE HERE ONLY TOUCHES THE SURFACE BUT HOW EXCITING THAT THIS IS THE FIRST TIME IN HISORY THAT UFO’S HAVE BEEN ADMITTED TO AND THE FOOTAGE IS GREAT OF DAILY SIGHTINGS!
APPARENTLY THIS WAS WRITTEN ABOUT A REAL EXPERIENCE HE HAD!
THIS PROBABLY REFLECTS THE CONFUSING SITUATION IN THE WORLD RIGHT NOW A LOT BETTER AND I LOVE THE ULTRAVOX INFLUENCE
A CHILLING STORY HAUNTINGLY FILMED…CLEVER AND ETCHED ON MANY’S CHILDHOOD MINDS…
I FOUND THIS ON VINYL IN CALI A CLASSIC STORY DRAMATIZATION THAT CAUSED SUICIDES…ONLY THIS TIME ITS REAL!
I CANT HELP ADDING THIS. A FINE RETURN TO FORM…NICE TO HEAR SYNTHS FROM GARY AGAIN I REMEMBER MY MATE KEIREN SAYING HE ONCE SAW NUMANS COLLECTION OF ANALOGUE SYNTHS THAT FILLED ROOMS AND REACHED CEILINGS! THIS REFLECTS THE CURRENT MOOD WELL WITH THE BLACK SUN REFERENCE. I INCLUDE THE BLACK SUN CULT IN MY VRIL CODEX NOVELS
MY FAVE RECORD OF THE YEAR SO FAR…HAS A REAL LATE SIXTIES PSYCHEDELIC SOUND…THE LEFT SIDE STEREO DRUM BEAT IS REMINISCENT OF THOSE BEATLES STEREO MIXES. A LARGE PINCH OF IRON BUTTERFLY RATHER THAN SAY…SYD BARRETT..AND A SLIGHT NOD AT ONE POINT IN THE GUITAR TO BORN TO BE WILD, .LOVELY BYRDS STYLE INTRO JANGLY IN A STONE ROSES BUNNYMEN SENSE TOO…WITH ITS SLIGHT NOD IN ITS VISUALS TO 1970’S DYSTOPIAN SCIENCE FICTION CLASSIC BLAKES SEVEN (ELEPHANT MAN- 1970’S TELEVISUAL ATV EFFECTS /70’S DR WHO) BUT THE BLAKES 7 LINK MEANS THIS CAN BE SLIPPED INTO THIS WEEKS DYSTOPIAN THEME THUS!
INTERESTING DISCUSSION ON THE GREAT DYSTOPIAN CLASSIC THAT WE ARE HEADING TOWARD ACCORDING TO THE MANICS…BRAGG LOVES COLERIDGE AND WORDSWORTH AND REGULARLY DOES PROGRAMMES ON THEM…AND KNOWS ALFOXTON WELL…
ANY EXCUSE FOR SOME 1980’S ELECTRONICA MY FAVE TOYAH TRACK…

NOT UFO RELATED…MY MATE GILES GOODEN AND BAND TURNED ME ON TO THIS TRACK – A BIT OF LIGHT RELIEF. FAT POP IS A FINE ALBUM WHICH I MAY REVIEW HERE BUT FOR AN ARTIST WHO HAS BROKEN SO MANY RULES OF MUSIC AND BROKEN DOWN BARRIERS OF GENRE BRILLIANTLY ITS ALWAYS SEEMED IRONIC THAT MANY OF HIS FANS SEEM SO…WELL THIS JOKE RECORD IS A LAST BUT NOT LEAST THAT SUMS IT UP!
