Geek Love, Again



It's been a couple of years since I last posted this track, too long, Even now, every time I hear Geek Love it takes my breath away it just never seems to get tired, it should be aired frequently and also be played very loud. Although clocking in at over 9 minutes the song never outstays it's welcome and indeed I usually go over to the turntable and put the needle back to the beginning or if it comes on the iPod the back button is pressed. That bit nearly two and a half minutes in when the song explodes into life sends shivers through me every time. Peel once said "even if they never made another record, they will have achieved more than most of us do in our entire lives" and you know what he wasn't wrong. Classic is an overused word when I am talking about music but I think you should let me off if I use it to describe Geek Love.

My goodness. It couldn’t be that good, could it? Surely a heap of hyperbole. Ten minutes later all I can do is agree with your glowing assessment. Will go back for more this evening.

I managed to get a copy of that Dirk and then found a copy of the white label promo in a charity shop for a quid a few years later, gave then a fiver.
