Sitting by and watch you fall away
Taken from the last show, I think, that they ever played... this live version of 'Melon Yellow' is simply sublime. You can just listen and lose yourself, in wonder and bliss. It is limerence - in shape, texture and form - utterly defined and so clearly expressed. There is nothing like it; so take hold, embrace and revel in it (with little but life itself to cower from and fear).
Slowdive - 'Melon Yellow' (live, Toronto, 21-05-94)
Everything Slowdive, more or less. This studio practice version of 'Melon Yellow' is also worth a listen (for Rachel's wee Spinal Tap gag at the start alone, if nothing else).
