写到Suede/山羊皮乐队,我满腹的热爱、钦佩、赞许、崇拜、迷恋等等等等,要转换成方块字的时候,反而将我堵得词穷满脑子慌乱和郁闷。什么伟大,什么地位,什么历史意义,什么乐队简历,吹来写去都是浮云。我只知道这个乐队,在十来年前,用他们独一无二的灵感结晶轻轻地划过了我,留下许多伤口到现在都还是新鲜的不曾愈合,流得满地是血我却心甘情愿。

印象中,Suede有两首近乎完美结合古典弦乐和英伦曲风的作品,一首是96年乐队第三张专辑《Coming Up》里面的 The Chemistry Between Us,另一首就是这里展示的乐队94年第二张专辑《Dog Man Star》里的这首 Still Live。如果说 The Chemistry Between Us 的弦乐部分听起来还太过电气化而不够真实的话,那 Still Live 里面狂想曲般的弦乐厮杀则到位得足够让所有批评家闭嘴。而听者应该明白的是,这样情感饱满,旋律优美,灵感迸发,大气稳重而近乎完美的东西,出自一帮刚出道两年成天以命相搏从毒品和迷幻剂里获取灵感的年轻人。他们曾经被人批评为正气不够妖气十足,曾经被人指指点点生活混乱,曾经落魄到一文不值,但他们毕竟真真切切地做到了某些从未有人做到的东西。而这些东西尽管也许从没可能在金色大厅或者十亿元的国家大剧院阳春白雪地高雅那怕一回,但它将被地球上的另外一群人铭记一生,而这,就其存在的意义而言,就足够了。

This still life is all I ever do
There by the window quietly killed for you
In the glass house my insect life
Crawling the walls under electric lights
I’ll go into the night into the night
She and I into the night

Is this still life all I’m good for too?
There by the window quietly killed for you
And they drive by like insects do
They think they don’t know me
They hired a car for you

To go into the night, into the night
She and I into the night

And this still life is all I ever do
There by the window quietly killed for you
And this still life is all I ever do
But it’s still, still life
But it’s still, still life
But it’s still, still life
