"If you bring forth what is within you, what you bring forth will save you. If you do not bring forth what is within you, what you do not bring forth will destroy you."

Marianne Faithfull in the Sear Sound Studio NYC recording Salvation from the new album Easy Come Easy Go.

Marianne Faithfull enlisted an impressive group of people to contribute to her 22nd album, a collection of wide-ranging covers titled Easy Come, Easy Go.
The album, which will be released by Naive Records on Dec. 9, was recorded at New York City's Sear Sound by producer Hal Willner (Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams) last December. The band backing Faithfull featured Marc Ribot, Greg Cohen, Rob Burger, Barry Reynolds and the Dirty Three's Jim White.

Vocal collaborators were even more impressive: Sean Lennon on Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's "Salvation" and Judee Sill's "The Phoenix," Chan Marshall and Lennon on Neko Case's "Hold On, Hold On," Nick Cave on The Decemberists' "The Crane Wife 3," Rufus Wainwright on Espers' "Children Of Stone," Teddy Thompson on Brian Eno's "How Many Worlds," Antony Hegarty on Smokey Robinson And The Miracles' "Ooh Baby Baby," Keith Richards on Merle Haggard's "Sing Me Back Home," Jarvis Cocker on Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim's West Side Story tune, "Somewhere (A Place For Us)," and Kate and Anna McGarrigle on the traditional "Flandyke Shore."

~There is no God and we are his prophets.~

-Cormac McCarthy-

Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person being the master over heaven and earth by means of his will is a magus and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom



'The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them'.....'Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.'.....'In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.'.....'War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.' George Orwell

war is terror
