I've always associated love, death and dreams together. I guess true love is a kind of dying (une petit morte as it were) to one's ego and hence something to be both feared and desired in equal measure. To paraphrase Mark Twain: I have always loved life so I hope I shall love death. That is one of the reasons we made Catherine Anyango's artwork for the aforesaid album as a real life blank Last Will and Testament form. You can complete this for the benefit of your loved ones if you haven't done one already (most of us, unable to contemplate the idea of our demise, have not).
Personally I find spending time thinking about my own inevitable end a useful prompt to love my friends and foes rather better.
I hope to meet you at our Paris show or perhaps at one of our shows in Gent, Brussel or Alsace that proceed it but if I don't, above is a song on the theme at hand - it is a demo and rather ragged so forgive me for that. And, so as not to get too sentimental, here is Woody Allen on the matter:
“I'm not afraid of death; I just don't want to be there when it happens.”
See you on the other side then?
