That flashbulb moment….

“Don’t ask me why I obsessively look to rock ’n’ roll bands for some kind of model for a better society. I guess it’s just that I glimpsed something beautiful in a flashbulb moment once, and perhaps mistaking it for prophecy have been seeking its fulfilment ever since.”

[Lester Bangs]

I’d rather listen to the silence telling me
I can’t hear you, I don’t fear you…”

Maybe just me, but was there genius at work putting British Sea Power, Ocean Colour Scene & Seasick Steve on the same bill in the home of the Royal Navy…  [Just a thought…  🙂 ]

“You are astronomical
Fans of alcohol
So welcome in
Arising in the east
And setting in the west
All waving flags…”

“Now the old days print all the thumbs
The threat bare announcement surround over town
Now we’re being sentenced to 99 years
Still I don’t want to leave England…”

“I might not be perfect but I’m me to the bone
I don’t need to change my style
Been this way for a long long while
There ain’t nothing that I got to fix
You can’t teach an old dog new tricks…”
