Sprawl The Contessa's Party Lene Lovich: Shadows and Dust Mad
Raven Cry Sprawl Carnival

It’s been hard work around here for the last few weeks.  From Thorne’s The Contessa’s Party, Grandma’s Goodbye has emerged as a big favorite.  Most of its lyrics are imagined words from the lady kissing her man goodbye when he leaves for the boilermaking factory very early in the morning, but the chorus is an oral circular poem still current in mid-twentieth century working Yorkshire (England):

To go to work
To make some money
To buy some bread
To make us strong
To go to work

We’ll send you a longer E mail around November 21, when it’s available, along with some other interesting news.

We noticed that the newsletter archive has been a little messed up for the last couple of months.  All old posts are now in their correct places, back to 1999.  Hey, you could have told us…
