Was that god forsaken wind moving west..? We just got rid of a barn-flinging, witch-crushing wind here a couple days ago. It toppled a dusk-to-dawn light in the parking lot at work and smashed somebody's car (which I found only SLIGHTLY amusing because it wasn't mine).
Unmarked Helicopters, incidentally, is on "Songs in the Key of X," which is precisely the album you're speaking of. It turned me on to Nick Cave, actually. THERE, I SAID IT... I OWE MY NICK CAVE FASCINATION TO DANA SCULLEY.
Other great ones on there... "One More Murder," by Better than Ezra... PM Dawn's track's a good one (considering the source)... and The Foo Fighters covering my favorite Gary Numan song, "Down in the Park." They did a decent job.
And hearing William S. Burroughs read is interesting for the novelty alone... I like his writing, but... DAMN what a wasted of a track that was.
Moving along... Gary Numan, "Pure".
