You do it to me nicely…

I remem­ber sit­ting alone in my apart­ment, in Brook­lyn in Auck­land one night in the late 1970s, lis­ten­ing to Soon For­ward over and over again, try­ing to work out how one voice could be so aching­ly beautiful.….

It’s a ques­tion I was, across three decades of almost obses­sive fan­dom, unable to answer. And regard­less of the dark­ness that seemed to envel­op and sur­round him, there will like­ly nev­er be anoth­er like it.
