Some lines from For Sure by France Daigle (Translated by Robert Majzels):


The rituals of obsessive neurosis are such that Freud compares this pathology to a “private religion.”


Some books are written to be read, others only to have been written.


Along the lines of thinking the glass is half full or half empty, some people who believe they’re in danger of dying are in fact in danger of living.


Proverb for artists: when art fails, chance succeeds.


Rumour is certainly related to fantasy, but it can also be related to tactics.


To be the object of ridicule, but to put on a good show.


A project in continuum with The Fall
23 May 2023 | 4:54 pm

I have so much to say about this record that I don’t even know where to begin.

Made by members of The Fall who, over the years, Mark E. Smith fired or who quite due to his erratic and abusive behavior. Made by many of the musical architects of the classic Fall sound. And now that Mark E. Smith is gone they come together and make a record in continuum with the work of The Fall that’s almost as good as any Fall record and, for this reason, in some ways all that much better.

Revenge is a dish best served cold. Living well is the best revenge.

How to take past resentments and turn them into gold. How to have a final, unexpected fourth act that turns everything on its head.

For some reason listening to this record gives me some small hope for my artistic future. (Even though I’m probably Mark E. Smith in this story, so the hope comes after I die.)

“We shall define sexuality as that which can’t be satisfied and therefore as that which transforms the person.”
– Kathy Acker, Great Expectations

The Air Contains Honey - Sexuality 

“I adore everything I don’t understand.”
– Angela Lopes, Bridge Retakes

The Air Contains Honey - Everything

“In my best moments I think ‘life has passed me by,’ and I’m content.”
– Agnes Martin

The Air Contains Honey - Best Moments 

The Air Contains Honey is an “orchestra” that mixes professional and amateur musicians in search of a warmth and community spirit they may or may not find. All of their songs follow the same basic structure: a quote sung four times, an instrumental break, and then the same quote sung another four times. For the audience, as well as for the performers, this is a chance to hear an orchestra in the process of discovering its sound as it goes.

In these three videos The Air Contains Honey is: Patrick Conan, Thanya Iyer, Adam Kinner, Liam O'Neill, Lara Oundjian, Pompey, Stephen Quinlan, Rebecca Rehder, Catherine Fatima, Frédérique Roy, Mulu Tesfu, Jacob Wren.
