Marcel Duchamps Bride After She Tripped?
The Alchemist Discovering Phosphorus
"It was the first time I’d heard the word ‘masturbated’ in a pop song. I remember hearing that song too and being really stirred by it. It seemed so blunt and so erotic, but at the same time there’s this intermix of religious kind of language.
"'Darling Nikki' is really interesting because there’s like sexual erotic narrative but then there’s all that reverse vocal stuff at the end of the song. If you actually reverse it, it’s this little liturgical prayer in which he’s singing about ‘The Lord’s Coming’. When I heard that I was like that’s so strange and exciting."
