about

When William Blake penned his often recited poem Jerusalem about the North West of England (more specifically East Lancashire) he could almost have unwittingly been setting the scene for the work of Equinox. Those ‘dark Satanic mills’ almost a metaphor for the depression that is prevalent within the poetry and the ‘mental fight’ that has become an almost daily battle.

The poetry of Equinox takes no prisoners with subject matter ranging from male suicide to prostitution but with equal amounts of undying love and devotion, and has been set to music by several musical influencers with whom contact has been made over the last few years.

Track Name: Kiss (feat. Feral Five)
My head is aching, my
mind is brewing, I’m
sure there’s something I
should be doing, to
ease your conscience baby -
clear your mind,
but I’m far too busy clearing mine.

My head is aching, my
body’s dying, I’m
sure there’s someone I
can hear crying, for
someone to hold on to -
for all time,
but I’m too engrossed making my life prime.

My head is aching, my
brain is hurting, I
can almost sense the
final curtain, now
that life has fulfilled
my every wish,
I could die only feeling the pain of your kiss.
Track Name: Goodnight Vienna (feat. Vince Clarke)
It's barely 15 minutes since I found his body there
Slouching on the settee with a vomit induced stare
An empty prescription bottle sticking to his clammy hand
and half a dozen tablets scattered round like grains of sand
A crisp manila envelope sealed with little haste
'To Whom It May Concern' inscribed upon its face
As I stooped to pick it up I swear he smiled at me
I knew, at last, he'd arrived upon the place he yearned to be


The letter read:
'If you've found this note you're too late to say goodbye
If you're reading this then I've already left your life
If you're stood there wondering why I've done what I have done
the answer is life and all it brings, and, what I've left undone
Please pass on all my love to the girl I love the most
Tell her I'll watch over her with Father, Son and Holy Ghost
And one more thing - before you think that you can save my life
is that everything I have I leave to the boys and my humbled wife'


Now as I look down on his form I know I will not cry
I will not wince, I will feel no pain, I will not question why
I will instead be happy that he is at peace at last
That his troubles and his worries are now all in the past
He often told me that he felt he was destined for greater things
that the life he had was difficult with all the hurt it brings
and I know now what he meant when said under his breathe -
"Media vita in morte sumus” (in the middle of life we are in death)
