My Name is Victoria Winters - S/T


Assigning a musical genre to My Name is Victoria Winters is extremely difficult. The Australian band has a style that is eclectic to say the least. However, their early work from 1987 to 1990 can be considered a mix between post-punk and goth rock. In their later work, starting with The Collins Family Incesters, the band was inspired by ancient music from around the world, with lead singer Barnabas XY performing in a unique nonlingual style that drew from Jazz scat and glossolalia (speaking in tongues) with at times operatic phrasing, giving it a very distinctive sound. As a result, the band's later albums sound quite different from the first three.

The album artwork of their self-titled first album, which depicts a creepy graveyard, provides a hint at the meaning of the name My Name is Victoria Winters. However, many who are fans of 1960s daytime TV series Dark Shadows immediately recognize the name as the first line spoken by the female narrator at the start of each episode.

the ache of limb and back

the ache of limb and back
sleepless i stumble
to caffeine  blast
peculates yesterdays
fast pace provide
supper full house
of twenty three T-bone steaks
twenty three caesar salads
sixty pounds of wings
burgers and baked potatoes
as happy customers bring their plates
to kitchen to wash dishes
and then pay their bill.

a wondrous event starts the long weekend
fishing people from all over
every year they come laugh and celebrate.

I recall yesterday, from waving to you and the kids
goodbye to a crazy evening preparing food to beating the train home to find you walking down to greet me. i curled up with you.
