For a man of such talent, it’s really...... not great.
It sounds like someone absolutely monged at 5am with an out of tune guitar that they are now too fucked to play properly, mumbling into a dictaphone. Genuinely, that’s what I’m hearing.
Has he had a breakdown or something?

Me: It's totally fine for David Berman to mine the breakup of his marriage for song material.

Also me: I don't think it's cool for him to use photos of him and Cassie as well as an actress that looks a lot like her in the video for that same song.

OK, it turns out that the woman in that video actually is Cassie Berman. I know it's her because I tweeted a similar comment and none other than David fucking Berman himself replied to me to say that it is her and that despite their marriage ending they're still on good terms.

I feel like such a dick.

Superb. I thought it was her alright, but didn't like to contradict you!

ha ha, brilliant. I wonder if Cassie is in Purple Mountains? She seems to be singing along there anyway.

It reminds me of something Berman said during the whelans gig back in 200? - "She could have chosen a conventional male but no, she chose Berman"!

gas man.
