"Deliver them from the book and the letter and the word, and let them read the silence under soft black stars."
Released on the heels of Antony's under-appreciated debut album, the I Fell in Love with a Dead Boy EP is a little-known gem, employing the more intimate, stripped down sound that would help characterize his next album, I Am a Bird Now, as an artistic breakthrough. While the EP's title track is a memorable piece of necrophilia-themed chamber-gloom, the two covers are the real attraction: "Mysteries of Love" from Twin Peaks fame and Current 93's "Soft Black Stars." The latter stands as one of the most achingly beautiful and exceedingly dark songs Antony has recorded. This hard-to-find EP is not to be missed.
