I Should Not Dare [18 May 2011|11:35pm]


David has just unveiled a new song called "I Should Not Dare" via Twitter, and it's almost painfully beautiful. I didn't like the last album, but the new one, "Died in the Wool", will be released next week and I'm looking forward to it!
"I Should Not Dare" sets Emily Dickinson's poem to music accompanied by Christian Fennesz and Jan Bang - says the webpage.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did, again and again.

Also I've rummaged through the Internet and found loads of new hi-res photos of David.

Sylvian for Armani [09 Mar 2011|02:11pm]


It's surprising to know that he supplied music for a commercial. But I see no evil in it.

News Release - Mick Karn Has Cancer [04 Jun 2010|07:46pm]

[ mood | saddened ]

From his website:

"With great sadness we regret to inform you that Mick has recently been diagnosed with advanced stages of cancer. Mick is currently in positive mood and undergoing further tests and treatment. His family and friends are close with him, supporting him in practical ways, and surrounding him with their love, friendship and care.

Mick has been struggling financially for some considerable time now and we are hoping that this appeal may help to raise funds for any necessary treatment and perhaps go some way towards providing a small degree of financial support whilst Mick's immediate family provide the care and comfort we would all wish for him. We are hoping that his friends, fans and musical colleagues will, over the coming months, offer any support they feel capable of giving. Quite aside from the sheer brunt of daunting medically-related costs, Mick's clear and major concern is for the security and well being of his wife and young son.

If you would like to make a donation whether as an individual or as a group, you can do so via the paypal link at http://www.mickkarn.net/ which has been set up for this sole and express purpose. Any support you are able to give, no matter how small, could make a difference in helping Mick cope during this difficult period. His friends will be looking at a variety of ways to raise funds.

If you would simply like to leave your kind messages of support for Mick, please do so at http://www.mickkarn.net/Pages/Message.htm

We will keep you all updated as often as we can.

Please do note that news is released with Mick's full approval."

David Sylvian for gays ;) [12 Jan 2009|10:36pm]

I decided to write an article about David for a Ukrainian gay-magazine "Один з нас" ("One of Us"), but I lack materials :( I know, that he was (and still IS) a gay-icon due to his beauty. Can somebody guide me to some info concerning David and gay-culture??? I would be very grateful!
I hope to draw at lest some extra attention our favourite musician throug this publication.

What happened to David? [05 Nov 2007|10:58am]

Does anybody know, what happened to David Sylvian? His official site tells us about "an illness brought on by fatigue". What the hell happened to him? He couldn't have tired too much sitting with a guitar or tapping keyboards! The Moscow concert that was postponed on the 1st of November got cancelled! I went to Moscow from Ukraine (for those who don't know russia and Ukraine are two different countries ;D) to see him on the 17th of October and bumped my forehead against the closed door. My friend who bought the ticket for me is very dissapointed now... It is not about getting the refund, it's about not seeing David. Especially if to take into consideration, that it can be his last tour.
I just want to know, what happened.
