Describe another street.

We tell ourselves expedient stories because facing the complexities, contradictions and traumas of the truth are too daunting.

Until you start asking yourself what just really means. Of course, it’s just a song. Farrar, Straus and Giroux.

He is the author of ‘Inventory’ (Chatto & Windus/Farrar, Straus & Giroux) and 'Imaginary Cities' (Influx Press/University of Chicago Press).

I know a few of them were architecture students and there’s a sense of sculpting environments at work there, whether it’s claustrophobic (The Wall), expansive Wish You Were Here, submarine (‘Echoes’) or pastoral (all the songs that start with birdsong). Some changed their accents and tried to pass at Spurs and Arsenal matches or else they stuck to their own in working class Irish enclaves in the city. To be honest, I see this all over Britain and Ireland.

And they are the hardest to avoid because the deep dark Wild Wood is the most tempting of places to delve into.
On one hand, you’ve a moral responsibility to be true to what happened and on the other, everyone’s experience of the world is subjective and prone to amnesia, fictionalisation and contention, especially in a region like the north of Ireland. And a beautiful house.

It could express inexpressible things; my mother listening to ‘Who Knows Where the Time Goes?’ or ‘So Long Marianne’ exhausted after working until the early hours, my father singing songs to himself heading to salt the roads on dark winter mornings, mixtapes you exchanged as a means of flirtation, friends, who otherwise bust each other’s balls continually, embracing on dancefloors.

Here he shares a playlist of the songs behind the book.

Music was one way we communicated in the years of silence. My sister and I had this recorded on a glitchy VHS tape with bits of old adverts and songs from Grease 2 or whatever. They’re naïve and not much of a coherent mixtape but they are part of that memory theatre Walter Benjamin spoke of.

Where? In Joyce’s Ulysses, the main character, Stephen Dedalus, claims “History is a nightmare from which I’m trying to awake.” The problem though is that often we don’t really know, or want to know, our history. If the Irish are so dumb (an apparently acceptable prevailing view at the time), how come they keep rescuing literature here from itself? His writing has appeared in The Atlantic, the TLS, frieze magazine, Wired, and the Architectural Review. I learned later it’s a sample of Dmitri Shostakovich’s String Quartet No.

Why?


— last activity Oct 23, 2018 05:17PM, I'm looking to meet and chat with people about Irish Mythology in modern literature, what people are reading, how it's being interpreted and what I sh.

He was born in Derry, Ireland, and lives in London.

Though I live in London and big cities are the focus of almost all my work, I’ll always be someone from the periphery and because of that my heart is with those from similar places, wherever on the planet that is. I remember going to relatives’ homes and they’d be filled with Catholic iconography and a lot of people on the other side of the divide has royalist iconography all over the walls. The ice under our feet may not be as thick as we like to imagine, especially when there are so many cynics now who profit from divide and conquer, and so much civilised silence seems to be preference falsification. The following passage inspired Inventory, and gave it its name. View Darran Anderson’s profile on LinkedIn, the world's largest professional community. It was all far away until it was suddenly too close – a gun in your face from a passing car and the laughter of those inside, a random terrorist checkpoint in the middle of nowhere and the nauseous panic of not knowing which paramilitaries they are, waking up as if from sleep to find you’ve been kicked unconscious on the street.

It feels ancient and no one really knows who wrote it or when.

In the summer of 1996, there was a standoff at Drumcree with thousands of loyalist Orangemen insisting on marching through Catholic areas. See if your friends have read any of Darran Anderson's books. I should have been more inclined to like Britpop, given my love for Barrett, but most of it sounded like mockney oompah music and gave me the dry heaves. 8 - to this day the single most terrifying piece of music I’ve ever heard. Searching for the Young Soul Rebels came out the year I was born, a grim year in the north of Ireland and not much better for those who escaped becoming ‘involved’ to go work on building sites in London. The items we surround ourselves say something about us, even if it is a question of how we want to be seen or what we conceal. I felt this exhilaration but it was also theatrical, like we were playing at being revolutionaries (the same way we’d whopped with recognition that the scenes that drive Axl Rose insane in the video of ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ are from riots in Derry), and it always felt theatrical until suddenly it would lurch downwards, like in a lift that’s suddenly falling, and you’d see people getting badly injured, cars on fire, manic chases through alleyways and backyards and the fear, the real cornered animal fear, would kick in. Through older brothers, we’d become obsessed with the degenerate sounds of America (Jane’s Addiction, Nine Inch Nails, Butthole Surfers, Mr Bungle etc). ‘Lonesome Valley’ is so simple and so perfect. They were of people like Bessie Smith and Big Bill Broonzy. Though it was mostly blues, folk and rock, he had some idiosyncrasies that were really formative in terms of teaching me that when you dismissed things too readily, you were only constraining yourself; for instance, he had an uncharacteristic liking for The Cure and Devo and I remember finding ‘Sign O’ the Times’ in his collection and the minimalism of it sounded so counter-intuitive that it was radical. Growing up on the border with Donegal, an isolated enchanting place, I’ve an obsession with hinterlands cut off from the ‘mainlands’ and the unique cultures they produce. It carries on and you find yourself beginning the whole cycle again, somewhere new, somewhere far from home, and it keeps repeating over and over, different each time, different people and places. We become skittish and defensive, especially true in a place like Northern Ireland where saying the wrong thing could’ve gotten you arrested or shot.

Gallagher kept coming through it all and when it counted. And when you grow up in an environment where everyone’s listening to psychedelic music and their heroes are South American revolutionaries, you have to really think long and hard about how you’re going to successfully rebel against them.

The following songs reflect certain aspects of Inventory and the time span it covers, up until the late nineties. Initially, I wrote this strange dark river book called Tidewrack about the Foyle, which runs through my hometown and has had a profound impact on my family, but that ended up in development hell for years for various reasons (melancholic Sebaldian nature books weren’t setting the book world on fire). Link Copied. It’s got that murky production in the verses and that cheesy American football style chant in the chorus that was popular at that time but if I hear that tune, I’m still there, with the city lights below us, and the 21st century is just a whole lot of trouble up ahead, just out of sight.

Irish diaspora soul music. They’d drove over him in a military vehicle and battered those who went to try and help him. We live, true, we breathe, true; we walk, we open doors, we go down staircases, we sit at a table in order to eat, we lie down on a bed in order to sleep.

So much of what we listened to, especially some of the really intense atmospheric East Coast sounds, takes me back to getting chased through building sites, hanging out on rooftops and tunnels, getting up to all sorts of shit (though harming ourselves more than anyone else). We can Copenhagenise our future cities, make them as green and smart as we can, but provided we are still embedded in systems that reward cronyism, exploitation and short-term profiteering, that require poverty and degradation, it will be mere camouflage. The songs were as invested as objects are, and I was drawn to albums then that felt like cabinets of curiosities - Another Green World, Selected Ambient Works Volume II, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, The White Album (whose working title A Doll’s House summed up its feel, at its best, of hidden treasures in darkened attics). So I followed it into this other kind of blues I hadn’t realised existed, Piedmont, which was acoustic and haunting and full of tales of desire, murder, retribution, and which mixed spirituals, storytelling, blues, folk music, ragtime and country. There weren’t forbidden as such but it did feel irresistibly clandestine to discover music ‘yourself’ back when access to music was so scarce and had so much ownership and weight attached.

When? The person I latched onto was David Byrne.

It’s one of the heaviest songs on Angel Dust. And a beautiful wife…. I didn’t know his name so I called him ‘the Man on the TV’.
