Dead Can Dance Dishes Dionysus
On Echoes we’re going to dance with Dionysus, the Greek God of wine and love and all the good things in life. It’s the concept behind the latest album from Dead Can Dance, the long-lived duo of Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry. Perry takes us inside the concept of his Dionysus from dancing and the harvest to drugs.
Brendan Perry: I remember the first time I dropped LSD. I was in a horrible old beaten up hotel and I remember sitting there with the guitar. And just playing a chord, a chord, and it just sounded like a symphony.
