Brigitte Handley  Solo acoustic project from BRIGITTE: :: singer/guitarist from Australian band, The Dark Shadows...

The fountain of past and future flows again… bringing worlds and thoughts together, once lost in time… like a Distänt Mind…. I’m lost in time…
And I I I, I’ll be fine
It’s hard to explain sometimes
What you can see with a distänt mind…
After 20 years of drought and neglect, with a bit of care and understanding, the water well is full and flows again through the ‘Wasserkinetische Plastik’ by Cologne artist Wolfgang Göddertz in Köln Ebertplatz…. It’s amazing what those Heinzelmännchen can do when you’re not looking…. J

Today is a blue cap day... a tip of the hat in honour of original ‘Blue Cap’, Dickie Harrell! Dickie let out that scream, n flipped his cap just at the right moment of ‘Be Bop a Lula’ that unleashed an energy and inspiration for countless generations of drummers, musicians and music lovers to come… I learnt so much from listening to those records…. Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran were my favourites growing up and I feel so lucky and honoured to have met and shared the stage with Dickie Harrell one time in Vegas… he was and is such a lovely person and so kind to all his friends and fans… always a joke, smile, sharing stories and cool original unseen pics of rockabilly legends for us all to see and always something positive to say… I tip my to you Dickie… thank you. Chapeau!
Be Bop a Lula - Gene Vincent & The Blue Caps - classic scene from the film, The Girl Can’t Help it 1956 : https://youtu.be/soxN55f7fzU?t=47m58s
A little something from the B-Grade vaults… I was a very little B when I recorded this…

Köln Ebertplatz damals und jetzt! Cologne, Ebertplatz as it was in 1977 with the then functioning fountain ‘Wasserkinetische Plastik’ by Cologne artist Wolfgang Göddertz…. and now in 2018 as seen in the new clip for Distänt Mind from the album The Edge of Silence…. by Brigitte Handley.
Imagine a time and a place where dreams are first imagined… create some distance and step into a new space... two worlds trying to relate to one another like a Distänt Mind…. https://youtu.be/5X-rGL7CD6U
Apparently the water in the fountain shall soon flow again, working towards bridging gaps between years and closing the distance between us… we can only hope for a better future of tolerance and understanding between us all…
