MARC ALMOND GEORGES BATAILLE TRACKS

During a week in September 1984, a festival to celebrate the French writer, Georges Bataille, was presented in London at the Bloomsbury Theatre by Paul Buck and Roger Ely. Amongst the plethora of writers, film-makers, musicians, actors, performance artists and dancers was Marc Almond. Drawing from sympathies with Bataille's writings he selected a handful of new songs to form a bouquet of heavily-thorned roses. Late in the evening of the 26th, dressed simply in black, he walked quietly onto the stage, Blood Tide acting as an overture. Twenty-three minutes later, after the numbers you are about to hear had been delivered, he stepped slowly backwards, fading into the darkness, still intoning: "I will never love again". No bows, encores or more. An artist knowing the moment belonged to Bataille and not the self.
