Go right now to the March 2008 issue of Arthur and read this fantastic interview (scroll to page 34) with Diamanda Galás.

I remember the first time I heard Diamanda Galás. I was in high school. I fancied myself as dark and artsy, political and tough, intellectual and fearless. But with my first listen to this powerful woman, I was scared shitless! She was, and continues to be, such an inspiration, and a force. So true, so visceral yet metaphysical, and so FIERCE.

she equally scares and terrifies me, and though i own several, i can seldom get through one record before switching gears. not because it's bad, but because she takes me to a place i seldom want to go.

new album out in april. one of these years, i'll go to one of her valentine's day NYC shows.
