The same book cover image was used for The Crystal World, Ballard. Odd. Loving Swamp Thing. A strangely thoughtful comic, at times.
Interesting. The cover shows a detail from 'The Eye of Silence / L’oeil du silence', 1943-44, by Max Ernst, which Ballard would certainly approve of.
I like it when you post stuff like this, Glimmung. I'm just saying.
There's a track on Coil's 'Constant Shallowness Leads To Evil' album called 'I Am The Green Child'. I always wondered what inspired the song. I like the way the poem is described as 'inscrutable' on Wikipedia. As the track is an intense meditation in electronic sound. A distorted amplified adjunct to the perceived shallow and fickle attributes of today's society. John Balance was a great poet in his own right, and many of his Coil vocal performances are definitely informed by a certain 'otherness'. RIP John and Peter.
