One of the first two single releases from Carnival Star. This track features guest lead guitar from Liquid Grey.
What others have to say about this track pre-release:
"Glancingly revisits The Sisters Of Mercy before launching off on its own monstrous path & identity, celebrated by mental images of sweat-drenched human pyramids & arms held aloft, bathing in stark white light & dense smoke. This song gives everything and yet leaves you wanting more.
Play loud and repeatedly."
- DJ Cruel Britannia
"Starting with a blast of big synthesizer, My Coreen has a complete rock edge to it with a pinch of Sisters Of Mercy added to it. Well worth a listen or two. Or three...... "
- Mark Sharpley - Fourculture Magazine
Artwork by Natassa D. from her "Distortion" collection.
"My Dear Coreen" was all we wrote along the wall,
In the fading, failing light those words became our fall.
We saw decay,
We lost our way home,
We threw the knives you held,
That carved your names across our worlds.
That carved your name,
That carves your shame.
Oh you are,
Just a dream,
Oh you were,
Oh my Coreen.
Coming home is all we had and never felt the sorrow,
Always hold the thoughts you have and then let them sin tomorrow.
Let them sin tomorrow
Let them sin in sorrow
Oh My Coreen it's all a dream
Oh My Coreen what does it mean
Oh they are,
Just a scream,
From in our dream.
Oh we are,
To cleanse my dreams,
Oh my Coreen.
We're all dreams from a bitter heart,
You are the lust I could never start.
Our dying worlds should have walked away,
Coreen and I should have never stayed.

For the Bats returns with the third instalment of their Darkwave/Goth compilations. You will not find a finer collection of modern Darkwave outside of these compilations. Madeleine! Madelaine! (Molière Mix) was a close contender for best track. And one more time this is for the bats what are you waiting for. Neil Berry
