Lipstick Traces On Emmett Kelly's Enormous Collar

Giant Sand - Long Stem Rant (1989)

"There are two types of lipsticks: undulating, long-wave lipstick which, when distilled, gives flags, and light lipstick whose flower produces kisses. These kisses can be obtained in two ways, either by drying the flower plucked at the moment it blooms, or by crushing its seed which gives a highly volatile essence that is difficult to preserve."

- Benjamin Peret, "The Four Elements" (1945)

One of my favorite Giant Sand albums.

Yeah, it's a wicked, cruel, lean, mean and lovely record. I've a couple more GS to put up in the near future. Folks sure do like 'em.
