“Catholic Easter Colours”, from 1993, is a song that upset me the first time I heard it, and has upset me every time I’ve heard it since. Because, when it starts to fade out after 7 minutes, it’s only just hitting its stride.
It ambles amiably for just over 3 minutes, then picks up momentum from there, breaking into an effortless jog – kicking off its shoes, skittering along, Bobby Wratten doing his usual repeat/echo vocal trick, then Annemari’s harmonies come in, and the typically bleak chorus lyric (“We don’t call each other up any more”)…but when the piano first appears at the 5:30 mark, it’s like the sun bursting through after three days of rain, and it only gets more beautiful from that point on.
If there’s a 12-minute version of this song knocking around in a studio in South London, I’d sell most of my records just to hear it once.
You can download this song for free, at the Myspace page for Northern Picture Library.
