This is the 2nd artist on my jam list for the month of May. The first was Devo. Peter Gabriel is one of the artists I've been putting off adding to TIMJ cuz which track to you pick? I love all his stuff. Whether it's the soft soulful tribute to Anne Sexton in Mercy Street or the feral impish chaotic order of Shock The Monkey, he is a spectrum of human expression. His statements against oppression and for the independence of spirit are both transparent and obtuse; open to interpretation. I picked this one cuz the live video has him bicycling on his own stage, but this isn't his best song. He has no best song. It's all one long love letter he has spent his life composing to the universe. We are witness to his love affair with reality. He lets us see glimpses but the true magic he keeps to himself. That's as it should be for all of us. I plan to do a lot of jamming in the month of May. You're welcome to join me. It's a long list on my wall, and I'm still adding to it along the way.   3

When illusion spin her net I'm never where I want to be And liberty she pirouette When I think that I am free Watched by empty silhouettes Who close their eyes but still can see   1

"I was feeling part of the scenery. I walked right out of the machinery." Oh, goodness me, yes. If I focus, I realise that this song was pretty much my first exposure to the knowledge that I will never, in my life, write something this perfect.

Rejamming. Grab your things. I've come to take you home.
