Far Beyond The Wave

Blair Drawson

Here's a little lost three minute gem I've been enjoying a lot lately, from the other side of the very famous and still lovely 'First Picture Of You'. It's like a slight sketch dashed off on a dreamy day, but no elaboration could make it better.

Looking them up, I see they reunited for a concert in Liverpool last month, and are planning to release a new album soon; there are some working versions of new songs on their MySpace.

Who'd have thought?

The Lotus Eaters - 'The Lotus Eaters' (1983)


  1. Love this band for some reason...

  2. First Picture is one of those songs, quite possibly the most evocative of memories of a teenage summer that I can think of.

  3. That's the reason I was grasping for, Simon. Well put.

  4. Nice tune, I have the follow up You Don't Need Someone New on a rather lovely picture disc.

  5. In a grovelling voice, would it be possible to get a copy of that PF Peel session?

  6. Thanks Davy, kinda set me in mind of Jethro Tull's Living In The Past. Love the painting too, like Gaugin meets Russel-Flint and Chagall.

  7. Thanks Davy, but nothing in my inbox!

  8. A touch of the Klimts too Nick? I'll take your word on the Jethro Tull.

    Drew: check again - I must have used a dud address...

  9. Interrupted a bit of Friday Funk to check this out.

    Probably shouldn't have...

    Lovely none the less.



  10. Funk interrupted is funk put by for another funky time, I figure x
