…and you drink a little too much and try a little too hard. And you go home to a cold bed and think, ‘That was fine’. And your life is a long line of fine.

In November I’ll be releasing my new solo record, entitled ‘Box Of Bees’. There’s no music, it’s just a box full of live bees. The deluxe edition comes with more bees.

The Isle of the Dead, 1883, oil on panel, 80 × 150 cm, The Alte Nationalgalerie, Berlin.
It is one of the most famous paintings created by the Swiss symbolist painter Arnold Böcklin. In fact, he produced several different versions of this mysterious painting between 1880 and 1886. They all depict a desolate rocky isle seen across an expanse of dark water. A small rowboat is arriving at a water gate. In the bow, facing the gate, there is a standing figure in white. Just in front of the figure there is a white object commonly interpreted as a coffin. The tiny isle is dominated by dense dark cypress trees — associated by long-standing tradition with cemeteries and mourning.
Böcklin himself provided no public explanation as to the meaning of the painting, though he did describe it as “a dream picture: it must produce such a stillness that one would be awed by a knock on the door”.
The above featured painting is the third version painted in 1883. In 1933 it was put up for sale and a noted Böcklin admirer, Adolf Hitler, acquired it. He hung it first at the Berghof in Obersalzberg and after 1940 in the New Reich Chancellery in Berlin. It is now at The Alte Nationalgalerie, Berlin.
