3AM Eternal: Eyeless In Gaza “Veil Like Calm” (1982)



Another single bought solely for its cover, this one was picked up…somewhere…Austin, perhaps?…strictly on the basis of its cover, and, again, I was pleasantly surprised by its contents. “Veil Like Calm” is a wonderful, less-than-two minute summation of what makes Eyeless In Gaza so great: dark, introspective lyrics, a style that commits to absolutely no style, and a sound familiar yet alien.

Their early years were quite prolific–and a forthcoming box set of those years is due for release on Cherry Red  this week–and it comes highly recommended. Like yesterday’s offering, they’re still an active band, and in fact have released a new album this month. While I haven’t heard it, I’m sure it is superb.
