886. killer

“Some bands flirt with the edge. Van Der Graaf Generator routinely operated as if it didn’t exist. Though routine is probably the wrong word, there being nothing remotely normal about anything they ever released. As for Killer (found on their second proper album), I tend to think of it as a white shark’s blues, concerning as it does the travails of just such a creature, loveless, having never known love, forever prowling, forever hungry, never sated, just keep moving, keep eating – oblivion either way.” (Philip Random)
