about

This mix of “Forbidden Colours” appears on the 2012 Projekt Holiday release, ORNAMENTAL. This is Black Tape for a Blue Girl's first new recording since 2009′s 10 NEUROTICS. It's a lush cover of the theme from the 1985 David Bowie film, Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence (written by David Sylvian / Ryuichi Sakamoto). A haunting, neo-classical track in the vein of the REMNANTS OF A DEEPER PURITY album.
