Back in the days when I was depressed - really, REALLY depressed to a point where I could barely function, I fell into an ablum by Scots band The Delgados called The Great Eastern.
It remains one of my favourite discs of all time, and the song American Trilogy truly called out to me in a way that mirrored the way my depression was heading In the end, and to paraphrase the lyrics, I decided not to give up breathing.
Now that the Black Dog's not so bad these days, I can turn to No Danger from the same album. Still a bit dark, still a bit skewed, but it's uptempo and the video has dancing nuns. What's not to like?
From the video's own blurb: Classic, though rarely seen, video from cult Glasgow band The Delgados featuring Glasgow neds, cameos from the band members and, most notably, a raft of line-dancing nuns. Tremendous.
