12 January ~ "... a double prophecy, doubly obscure. In a thousand years, Gandahar was destroyed. A thousand years ago, Gandahar will be saved, and what can't be avoided will be." A suitable conundrum, and fitting metaphor for DB now bound to live forever in the hearts and minds of others.

Late last year I was asked by T to help translate and decipher lyrics from the album 'Blackstar' for its Japanese release. I said yes without thinking. Well, you would, wouldn't you. I missed The Beatles so my fixed cultural constant was naturally David Jones from Brixton and Bromley. As it would turn out the lyrics, as dark as they were and as troublesome (or worrisome) we never thought they would be as literal or direct. The both of us genuinely concerned as we worked our way around the tinged Polari, trying to fathom the weird parallels that he seemed to make between the past, the future, and the ever-present, Fukushima and the ascendancy of the soul, in all form—celebrity and terror, pastoral dreams and X-ray screens. But we pushed it all to the back of our mind and delivered our interpretation to the record company—at times an essay, charting John Ford's play from 1629, and the cut-up slang of Fifties London Gay subculture. We just didn't realise it at the time, but that slowly ascending soul would end up being his. I think for the time being, I will be making stuff like theres no tomorrow, encouraged by his shear tenacity and bloodymindedness. DB. The great motivator.
