MEMORY OF LOVE

‘Hey Hey Preacher man with a bible in your hand. Roaming the wilderness for a congregation‘. Wayne’s pointed lyrics about a false prophet melodically weave throughout jangly 12-strings and Simon’s melodic bass drive. Orchestrated guitar textures enhance and dance without a trace of synthesizers to be found! First time ever these two members from these two iconic bands have combined their signature sounds in the studio...
 
 

I have seen
I've seen the valley
I have crossed thru its darkness
I have lost so many battles
I have know so many demons
I have fought with the memory of love
But the memory of love is slipping thru my fingers
Sometimes the memory of love is just not enough to win this war I'm still fighting


Oh, to stare
Into loving eyes to smile to cray
And to feel
The touch of a hand as I'm reaching out mine...
 
May be just, just a reflection
I have held the expectation
That I am not, I'm not alone
That I am not, I'm not forgotten yet we are
 
And the memory of love
Can't carry any more
It is worn
The memory of love, just must be enough
Even the little that remains

Oh, to stare
Into loving eyes to smile to cray
And to feel
The touch of a hand as I'm reaching out mine...

I want to give again

I want to live again
 
I'm drowning in a waterfall
Of pictures and places and feelings recalled
I've let go but I still hold on
To everything and to nothing at all

My memory of love can't be taken away
But it stands in the distance still shrinking
I shout but my memory of love is fading away
My memory of love it fades away
 

Oh, to stare
Into loving eyes to smile to cray
And to feel
The touch of a hand as I'm reaching out mine...

 Simon Gallup  Short bio could go here. Links to artist website,  info , projects,  artist on shecter site , etc.

SIMON GALLUP

What can I say… simply my fav bass player of all time (well just after my wife ☺).   Simply Blessed to have him on this track, such a ‘Simon’ bass line too!  While he’s not much for social media presence, you can follow THE CURE here.  There is also a cool fan run page here.

Big thank you to Simon’s son, Eden for tracking his dad in his studio.  Please check out Eden’s band Violet Vendetta.

Finally there are some alcohol-fueled ‘rumors’ that this collaboration may have rekindled a side project between Simon and Mr. Hussey.  You all can thank me later ☺

 Wayne Hussey  Short bio could go here. Links to artist website,  info , projects,    artist on shecter site , etc.

WAYNE HUSSEY

A dream collaboration for me.  Wayne has always been one of my favorite singers, lyricists and guitarists!  ‘God’s Own Medicine’, ‘Children’ and ‘Carved In Sand’ are desert island listens for me.

Getting Wayne and Simon on a song together for the first time is certainly surreal.

For more info on THE MISSION, visit here . This goth icon and Mish Main-Man is also known to frequent this page ☺

 Michael Ciravolo  Short bio could go here. Links to artist website,  info , projects, etc.

MICHAEL CIRAVOLO

 

Words can't describe how grateful I am for Wayne and Simon for being part of BEAUTY IN CHAOS.

Being an artist and guitarist who is a fan of both THE CURE and THE MISSION, having these two gentlemen not only take the time to do this but also love what we created here is pretty special.
