That Your Body Makes

Christo and Jeanne-Claude - The Umbrellas (1991)

I've filled a case full of meager treasures and am heading to find a lover in the sky. A sky with a busty blue monochrome draped with long aeronautic strings of white pearls teetering frighteningly high overhead. I plan for us to step into a vast, still bathtub of earth filled the brim and watch our displacement splash overflow into the shape of mountains at a distance and spill over the edge of the horizon. And as Tony Dekker of Great Lake Swimmers suggests, make metaphorical love to the landscape. If you're in Madison this weekend while I'm away, be sure to greet the Great Lake Swimmers on Friday, June 29th while running your fingers along the bar at Cafe Montmartre.

Is 'Your Rocky Spine' their only good song? I really love it, but i havent heard anything else i like. I may nervously buy an album off itunes.

I'd definitely recommend it as worthy of a purchase. As far as specific other songs on the album, I agree with Pop Headwound that "I Am Part of a Large Family" is a stellar track.

you know, one of those umbrellas killed a lady. the great lake swimmers are great. "Your Rocky Spine" is definately one of their easier songs to automatically fall in love with....guaranteed if you listen to the entire album enough - you will love it too.

my first crush ever (probably around the age of 2 or 3) was the incredible hulk. not the man that turns into the hulk, but the actual green monster. i had it all planned out: we were gonna get married and have lots of little hulk babies.
