Sad Old Men


...................After the High the Low

My hair is getting a little bit gray at the side. That’s no worry because it’s been like that for more than 10 years now, ever since I turned 21 but nevertheless, sometimes it makes me feel like a sad old man… at such moments it’s comforting to listen to some Sad Old Men who carry the load of the world and experience that it’s not that bad after all.

I’m a fan of David Sylvian [remember Japan, he used to have a fake föhned blond hairdo like all the big rock stars of the era but also a great voice] the hairdo has gone or dim but the voice remained. A dark sad melancholic tenor with a sparkle of light and a glance of hope to set the balance. He gathered a group of people to form a band called Nine Horses and released an album this year called Snow borne Sorrow.

Daníel Ágúst is a member of GusGus, a Scandinavian electropop collective. He turned solo I guess or did a side project of some sort and released an album called Swallowed a Star. He’s touring around Europe to promote the album and got invited at the last edition of De Nachten at De Singel in Antwerp. That’s where I saw him perform this music with a little string quartet. It’s quite different from the music of GusGus. It’s very appropriate for the type of weather we’re having right now [and for my hair].

And last a song with a very appropriate title: Closing Titles by Tindersticks. A unique band if you ask me. You either love them or hate them. The singer’s voice tend to get unto some people’s nerves. I have to admit that I can’t always listen to it. Only when I’m in the right mood... What kind of mood if you hear a song like Closing Titles? This is definitely one of my all time favorite songs. I find it very comforting and I can imagine that some people would want to play it at their or anybody’s funeral.
