Goodbye Horses

“Would you fuck me? I’d fuck me. I’d fuck me hard.” Who can forget the scene from the 1991 film, ‘Silence of the Lambs’, where serial killer Buffalo Bill, plays dress up, applies make-up, and tucks his penis between his legs, whilst dancing in front of a video camera to, “Goodbye Horses”? A collision of an evil psyche and a beautiful song that permeated in the minds of all that viewed this scene. “Goodbye Horses” was written and performed by William Garvey and sung by female songstress, Q Lazzarus in 1988.

The lovely Fan Death have done a fine cover of “Goodbye Horses”, to commemorate their first upcoming European tour, kicking off 30 April at The Deaf Institute in Manchester. This post would not be complete without the video scene of Buffalo Bill getting pretty for the skinning.

  7. Unfortunately I don’t think they collaborated after this one hit. Garvey is still making music but it’s not so hot and made even less hot by not so good vocals.

    I would recommend Yazoo (Yaz), Erasure (especially first two albums “The Circus” and “Wonderland”) early Depeche Mode and OMD. More recently La Roux is doing a nice job bring back the retro electro sound.
