Momus -
"Voyager"

[ Released on Creation Records - CRECD 113 - June 1992 ]

MOMUS SAYS:  At the Edinburgh Festival, 1991, Momus sees a play based on a short story by Yukio Mishima: an old lady travels back through time to her youth. The emotions released by this collision between science fiction and melodrama - nostalgia for the future, a wistful distance from the present, a kind of wise, weary and sad resignation - inspire him to return to a more sentimental style of songwriting. Almost kitsch, set to lush ambient music which turns in spirals of fifths, 'Voyager' is the sound of alienation turning into a distant sort of caring.
