Twenty-six can suck. You get through the earlier years with scrapes and bruises and highlights. But around twenty-six is when your first ‘serious’ relationship fucks up and you find yourself alone at the end of the day singing and crying Massive Attack’s ‘Unfinished Sympathy’ down the line.. ‘Really hurt me baby, really hurt me baby. How can I have a day without a night.’ Fuck it. Sick video though. Twenty-six years ago, 91. Directed by Baillie Walsh, the vid featured vocalist Shara Nelson walking from LA’s 1311 South New Hampshire Ave to 2632 West Pico Boulevard oblivious of her surroundings and filmed in a single continuous shot for five minutes and twelve seconds. They tried it again six times before crew was fucked from carrying equipment. A bit like those relationships at twenty-six. There’s no sympathy.
Celebrate with a Doomsday x Monster Children Tee or Coffee Mug. Or just read MC Magazine and wait until it’s late enough to cry down the line again — No sympathy.
