Yeah yeah, Goddess blah blah Serious Scholarship blah blah Deep Thinky Mystery Religion Stuff blah blah blah and et cetera.
So (ha!) this isn't Pagan (probably. Maybe it is; I don't know). But I am speechless and simply must share. I absolutely cannot keep this in.
See, I know the band below (well not personally), and have been listening to the pre-1976 stuff for years; yet somehow I never actually thought to look up a live performance on YouTube. And so I'm just stunned, though really I shouldn't be.
I went to high school in the 1980s. So (ha again!) I first knew this singer from that time period, and that is the image of him I'll probably always hold in my head. I mean, sure, I had heard the guy used to have a predilection for red cocktail dresses and fox masks, but still. Damn.
Because the mad March merry hare scrawny adorable long-haired pixie in the glam makeup is fucking Peter Gabriel. With that angel's voice of his mature and unmistakable though he is only twenty-three years old. Unbelievable.
P.S. I don't want to hear anyone say, Peter Who??? and then whine about being born in the 1990s or something. Oh, and get off my lawn!! Damned kids.
