About this deal

The descriptions of withdrawal aren't pretty - one epic scene, as gripping as a thriller, begins at a bus stop at midnight in a rainy Sheffield and continues through Europe before finishing in London, in what can only be described as, pardon the pun, gut wrenching detail. The next day someone in the Nirvana camp asked if I would go with Dylan to some Capitol Hill dope houses to see if Kurt was hanging out at any of them.

Sing Backwards and Weep – Book Review Mark Lanegan – Sing Backwards and Weep – Book Review

I got the impression that Lanegan enjoys bragging about his junkiedom, rather than regretting any of it. Without reflection, it feels something like a journal: Day One, I did these drugs, day two I did these other ones.Although Lanegan briefly acknowledges that his mother had demons of her own to contend with, the bleakness of his childhood and the complexity of his family dynamic still take you aback. rounded up because I am sitting here listening to Come Undone and it is making me love him enough to round up instead of down. It was such an unexpected ending even with already knowing Layne’s outcome, and there isn’t much included on Mark’s collaboration with Queens of the Stone Age.

Lanegan and Kristen Pfaff, the bass player from Love’s band Hole, never get to consummate their mutual attraction before she overdoses in 1994, two months after Cobain. I wish Mark had conquered his demons earlier he pretty much squandered his own chances of capitalising on his enormous talent.

It was Isabel Campbell I’d wanted to listen to when I bought Ballad of the Broken Seas in 2006, and Lanegan just happened to be there singing with her. FWiW my favorite albums are Whiskey for the Holy Ghost, Bubblegum, and the gorgeous Hawk - a collab with Isobel Campbell from Belle and Sebastian.

How could Kurt be a fan when I saw in him a talent that was genuinely not of this place and time, like Bob Dylan, John Lennon, David Bowie, or Jimi Hendrix?I was struck again by how visceral a reaction Lanegan was able to evoke—I really felt like I was experiencing his agony while he read.
