The original is by London’s post-punk cult band Television Personalities
who, led by Dan Treacy, followed their own wayward vision of psychedelia.
The track dates from 1982. And the band is still going strong.
Turn Up The Volume: Stephen Nicholas White turns the original Kraut-rock
drone into a romanticizing Kraut-pop trip. The ongoing circling guitar riff, the
repetitious flow, and the featherlight vocals on top of it have a hypnotic effect
and sneak under your skin quietly but determinately.
“Love’s a thousand things
Everyone a precious thing
Love’s a thousand dreams
Everyone a mystery”
Dream quietly here…
