Weirdass spookiness

I was ambling along the corridor at work, when suddenly a line from a song popped into my head - "In a cafe over coffee, he remembers...". And I knew it was a girl's name that came next, but didn't know what. And I knew it was a song I knew really well, but didn't know what song or by who.

So, obviously, when I got back to the computer I googled it. One result - a review on Amazon of Jack's Pioneer Soundtracks from 1996. One of my favourite albums, but I haven't listened to it for ages. The song is the first track on the album, "..Of Lights". (Yay for songs with random punctuation!) It's a beautiful, sprawling song, with the refrain "What if the world wasn't ending" and hooked around a heart-piercing wail of "Somewhere there's a party going on..."

I decided to check out Anthony Reynolds' website (he WAS Jack, and I have to say, Jack is officially the worst name ever for a band - trying to google them, or search for them on P2P networks or Amazon or whatever is a bloody nightmare), which told me that Pioneer Sountracks is getting a re-release with an extra CD of shinystuff *this month!* Yay! You can order it from Spinney Records, only not right now because they haven't got round to updating their webpage, but it should be on there this week, according to one of the re-issue's mySpace pages. Warning: pretty music, hideous design.

Also I discovered that Reynolds' band AFTER Jack, Jacques (heh), was a collaboration with imomus. The links, the links everywhere...
