“I realize Sparks beat me to the punch, but I still wanted to write a song about books,” says Alex Lilly in reference to “Pure Drivel,” which occupies the opening track slot on her new LP Repetition Is A Sin. She’s quoted in Enigma Online, which has an embed of the track. “I was in a book club over the pandemic,” she says.” We read some DH Lawrence — an author who’s been banned in the past. It was an interesting club as we mostly drank and smoked and never finished a single book — I’m not proud of this fact! But it was a break from boredom and Beck read us the first chapter of Moby Dick.”
