Peeter Panhuys -1562-

I just received tonight, out of the blue, a picture of this magnificent portrait of our ancestor Peeter Panhuys

The picture was painted by Bruges’ most famous portrait painter of the sixteenth century, Pieter Pourbus, just a year after Panhuys’ wedding with Margrijete Bartholomeus von Eyckelenburgh

Treasurer of the city of Antwerp and a great art collector, Peeter van Panhuys (1529-1585) is depicted here at the age of 34 by Pourbus, twelve years before the famous painting by Maerten de Vos, now at the Mauritshuis Museum

Oil on panel, dated 1562

Howard….

They don’t know how we rehearse our dreams…

I remember my friends always questioning my passion for Magazine and Howard Devoto. Not specially fancy music, not really superstars…
No, it is mostly a special chemistry between my entire personality, my feelings and what their songs transfuse to me, as music to my own lyrics..
It is kind of strange to measure contrast between Buzzcocks, his original band and what Magazine could produce as a mosaic of music and ‘not so explicit’ lyrics. It is not so accessible.
It is a matter of symbiosis…or I like to believe so.

 

Two sides to every Story….

Jah Wobble is owing the legacy of the original PIL. John Lydon remains as a genius clown,

This song stays as the obituary of my Generation, our dreams turned to ashes, or not really : we did not believe in Future.

 

Gold nugget!

The Gun Club means a lot to me. I share intimacy with their poetry with my dear Miss S.

My Dreams

I did you no Wrong

 

‘I thought I heard you saying
Thought you said you missed me
But you were only history -or?- But you only hissed me
When I was gone
I thought I heard you say
They’ve done you in good
And yes, I believe they would
May I console you
But I did you no wrong
That’s not like me, I did you no wrong
So don’t put it all on me
And you are not the light of the world
But you shine on me
No you’re not the light of the world
But you shine on me
No you’re not the light of the world now
No you’re not the light of the world now
I heard you walk
Under the black skittle hall dad -or?- blacks got all dad -or?- blacks ghetto, dad -or?- I heard her blast it all bad
To hurt me, and yes it’s sad
Have this settle the score -or?- Has it settled the score?
I thought I heard you walk
Up the fire-escape last night
And yes, in the deep of the night
I wished you were back
But I did you no wrong
That’s not like me, I did you no wrong
So don’t put it all on me
And you are not the light of the world
But you shine on me
No you’re not the light of the world
But you shine on me
No you’re not the light of the world now
No you’re not the light of the world now
But I did you no wrong
That’s not like me, I did you no wrong
So don’t blame it all on me
And you are not the light of the world
But you shine on me
No you’re not the light of the world
But you shine on me
No you’re not the light of the world now
No you’re not the light of the world now
No you’re not the light of the world now
No you’re not the light of the world’
