Festivals end as festivals must. . .
The trouble with us Death in June fans is we're so loyal we'll put up with just about anything from Herr Pearce. Problem is, no longer a band like the outfit that gave us 'Nada,' and lacking a shot in the arm from collaborators like Michael Cashmore from Current 93 or Albin Julius from Der Blutharsch, DIJ gets reduced to the same chord sequence of Em, G, C, D and back to Em and begins to sound like the Status Quo of so-called 'dark' folk. (Scare quotes because all real folk is dark).
