Songs About People # 321 Andrew Eldritch

Perhaps we all need to go back home eventually. Andrew Eldritch evidentally thinks so. He's moving back to Leeds, according to the taster song from Mountain Goats, Goths which is out in May. According to the writer of the song John Darnielle: 

'I imagine one of my teenage heroes, Andrew Eldritch, returning to the town where the band worked and played when they were young. His friends give him a hard time about ending up back where he started, but not because they're mad: it's good to see an old friend wearing the marks of time on his hands and face like well-loved tattoos. So shall it be in these times: your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions, and Andrew Eldritch whose music has reached spirits in every corner of the globe, will move back to Leeds.'
