BEYOND THE SUN. 'Beyond the Sun' was the first posthumous release for Billy Mackenzie, released on Nude records (home of Geneva and Suede) and based on recordings that would later surface on the 'Auchtermatic' and 'Transmission Impossible' releases in 2005. These recordings were reworked, mostly by former Cocteau Twin' Simon Raymonde, who produced seven of the tracks here, bringing the talents gained from his work with This Mortal Coil to the fore.

1. Give Me Time
2. Winter Academy
3. Blue It Is
4. 14 Mirrors
5. At The Edge Of The World
6. Beyond The Sun
7. And This She Knows
8. Sour Jewel
9. 3 Gypsies In A Restaurant
10. Nocturne VII


Great price. I paid full price when it came out dag nabbit! Love all of Billys solo stuff, and the Associates too of course.

Voted hot for great price and Billy RIP

Think this is a bit of a mish-mash album tbh though, still great but I did prefer Outernational some truely awesome stuff there well layered with atmosphere like Sacrefice & be Sacreficed and Baby were top draw

I Posted this in the Associates thread on here.

The Cure's song "Cut Here" lyrics are about his death, Billy and Robert being friends and how Robert let other things get in the way of meeting up...and then it was too late, really sad.

"So we meet again!" and I offer my hand
All dry and English slow
And you look at me and I understand
Yeah it's a look I used to know
"Three long years... and your favourite man...
Is that any way to say hello?"
And you hold me... like you'll never let me go

"Oh c'mon and have a drink with me
Sit down and talk a while..."
"Oh I wish I could... and I will!
But now I just don't have the time..."
And over my shoulder as I walk away
I see you give that look goodbye...
I still see that look in your eye...

So dizzy Mr. Busy - Too much rush to talk to Billy
All the silly frilly things have to first get done
In a minute - sometime soon - maybe next time - make it June
Until later... doesn't always come

It's so hard to think "It ends sometime
And this could be the last
I should really hear you sing again
And I should really watch you dance"
Because it's hard to think
"I'll never get another chance
To hold you... to hold you... "

But chilly Mr. Dilly - Too much rush to talk to Billy
All the tizzy fizzy idiot things must get done
In a second - just hang on - all in good time - wont be long
Until later...

I should've stopped to think - I should've made the time
I could've had that drink - I could've talked a while
I would've done it right - I would've moved us on
But I didn't - now it's all too late
It's over... over
And you're gone..

I miss you I miss you I miss you
I miss you I miss you I miss you so much

But how many times can I walk away and wish "If only..."
But how many times can I talk this way and wish "If only..."
Keep on making the same mistake
Keep on aching the same heartbreak
I wish "If only..."

But "If only...."
Is a wish too late...

-Robert Smith - ]The Cure - Cut Here

Great album, one of his best IMO. Hot!
