AUDIENCE OF PERSEPHONE

9 Mar

JUST AS THE SPRING, PERSEPHONE RETURNS. AS A YOUNG BOY I HAD UNKNOWINGLY FALLEN COMPLETELY UNDER HER SPELL. HEARING BECOMING X CHANGED EVERYTHING, AN ALBUM THAT SOUNDS JUST AS CAPTIVATING TODAY AS IT DID THE FIRST TIME IT WAS PLAYED.  THE SNEAKER PIMPS – WHO IMPLODED JUST AS THEIR ASCENT BEGAN, FAMOUSLY EJECTING LEAD SINGER KELLI ALI FROM THE GROUP JUST AS THEY PLANNED TO BEGIN THEIR SECOND ALBUM. HER VOICE SO POWERFUL THAT IT SINGLE HANDEDLY LURED ME BACK TO LONDON.A DECADE AFTER BECOMING X, I WOULD MEET PERSEPHONE IN THE FLESH.  IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM, THE MUSES FREQUENTED THE GHETTO, A LEGENDARY UNDERGROUND AMPHITHEATER IN CENTRAL LONDINIUM. THE SIGNIFICANCE OF CROSSROADS AND LEYLINES, IT MAKES PERFECT SENSE WHY THE LOCATION WAS A CONCENTRATION OF SUCH CREATIVE AND SPIRITUAL ENERGY. KELLI ALI APPEARED TO PERFORM SOME NEW MATERIAL, & MEETING HER AFTERWARDS WAS UNFORGETTABLE. SHE EXUDED SUCH CHARM, CHARISMA, AND GRACE VALIDATED THE OBSESSION. HISTORY REPEATS ITSELF AS I DANCED IN ECSTASY UNDER A VAULTED CEILING AS THE GENERATIONS BEFORE. LOW PLACE LIKE HOME, SIX UNDERGROUND, SPIN SPIN SUGAR
