Suede - Heroin
For a whole summer I had Suede and Dog Man Star playing on my radiocassette non stop. I wouldn’t listen to anything else. I could listen to those two albums at least 4 or 5 times a day each. I don’t know how my siblings didn’t go insane. That was before the internet and mp3 got into our lifes, before we had CDs (my household has always been late to all technological advances), before you could skip a song. I still remember the noise the tapes made when you’d rewind them.
I remember the day we thought there was a secret message recorded in an album and it was just the other side of the tape playing backwards (we had the volume quite high)
I kind of miss those times, the dedication that required being a music fan, the obsessions. I guess it had to do also with being a teenager.
