Part 4 of the ” Cover me in Stardust” covers collection ……”Into the night”

Julee Cruise’s “Floating into the night” is such a delicate and haunting album. This was my favourite song from it. I fell in love with it after Twin Peaks had infiltrated my life and mind. Twin Peaks was also my introduction to the world of David Lynch. These three have influenced my creativity ever since, both sound and vision.

I didn’t have a plan when I set out to record this. I always find that the story and feel of the song, evoke a visual narrative in my head, like a movie. I then try and re-create the emotions and feelings of the ‘film’ in my mind - through sound.

When I write a song on the guitar, it is the feeling that comes first. And the story and ‘film’ come later. So by the time I get to record, the ‘film’ has developed and that leads the way.
As you can see, songwriting and recording are very different processes for me. And that is partly why I found the “Cover me in stardust” EP so interesting to do!

Time for another vintage outfit I wore through out my “Cover me in stardust” E.P live videos……….…………

This is from the “Into the night” video:

This glamourous satin nude dress was quite possibly once a night dress! A delicate piece with no labels, it may well be handmade. Cut on the bias with the bust detailing, it has a lovely 1930’s feel to it.

I gathered many fine vintage pieces on Ebay (before the vintage hipster boom made it impossible to find a bargain anymore!) but I found this in a second hand shop on Blackstock Road in Finsbury Park a few years ago. I was very pleased!

The best places to search now for unique and not over-priced items I find, are in vintage and second hand shops across the Midlands and north England. But you will need a very keen eye.

I’m a sucker for a headpiece and enjoy ‘making’ my own but this black feathery, silver glittery peacock was found in a hobbies and craft shop in Somerset. I think he may have been an intended christmas decoration, but I offered him a life in the performing arts and he ran with it!

Topped off with little lace gloves (although not vintage lace this time), I enjoyed putting this one together very much.
