Brown Book (LP, Album). New European Recordings. Careful with the previous post which is incorrect and false. This 30th-anniversary reissue is loyal to the original Brown Book song content and both tracks that were originally sung by David Tibet - "Punishment Initiation" and "Burn again" - can also be found here. If anything, this album has a nice plus, new versions of "Runes & Men" + "To Drown a Rose", closing side B. Truly beautiful jacket, kind of cloth material imitating an old book cover, with a Douglas P. double poster inside.

Another slab of Douglas Pearce misanthropy, Brown Book doesn't veer too far from the apocalyptical folk of the earlier Nada! and The World That Summer, acoustic strumming guitars, rhythms that thud slowly like the marching footsteps of an army, and some weird electronics effects thrown in, while Pearce sings in his low voice.
Runes and Men Lyrics. With your hair of flaming Roses Your kiss - Medusa's touch Turn me to a pillar of salt To die now would be perfection. Then my loneliness closes in So, I drink a German wine And drift in dreams of other lives And greater times. White sheets wrap my mind In drunken thoughts of runes and men Why does the devil leave for us This legacy of loneliness. This cry for the moon And a dagger's thrust With your hair of flaming blooms And your eyes of saintly dusk
