And I Love

Ipod on shuffle find of the month fer suresies. Originally posted by Falcon Hawksome (who is unfortunately absent as of late) late last year in a great little comp of ripped seven inches comes this French rock rarity from 1976 by The Nightwalkers. Mr. Hawksome says...
"I've found absolutely no information on this band. All I know is that the cover art for the 7-inch rules. The song sort of does, too. Epic, tragic French rock."
I totally agree. A friend told me the other day to embrace my pain, and rediscover the sad music I might have discarded in happier times and I think this is the only way to start. A forgotten gem buried in Edgar's (my ipod) dark and dusty corners reveals itself in a time of need, inspiring me to drag synths and strings onto the roof, bang and pound away under the moonlight and howl toward the heavens.

The Nightwalkers- And I Love
