root of seed

I miss your smile. I miss your smell
mingled with mine and your laugh
over nothing substantial. It's the
inconsequential parts of 'a' to 'b' and
the journey between them which makes
me want to bury my face in your soul.

THE ROLLING STONES: WE LOVE YOU from "We Love You b/w Dandelion" 45 (Decca) 1967 (UK)

THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS: WE LOVE YOU from "Psychedelic Furs" LP (Columbia) 1980 (UK)

Nice bit of writing. I like smelly women too.

Never saw the the Stones. I thought they were a bunch of creaky old bastards in '76. My English mates spoke well of their Reading show and their fans singing along at the top of their lungs to Starfucker.

I will never forget either time I saw the Furs. The first was their Atomhenge tour after they made their first record. The turnout was not great but most of the crowd were smelly females and were there to see Richard Butler because they thought he was studly. I have only been to a few rock shows like that, where the females vastly outnumber the males. Hell of a good rock show those occasions are.

If the Stones were creaky old bastards in '76 they're a damn sight creakier now.

The Furs had quite a loyal female following, I recall too. They went off the boil after their 2nd LP; a sad fact compounded by being hijacked for that horrendous teen drama which lit up Vegas style for the bunch of middle-aged farts bankrolling it. Ker-Ching!
