In Newsly Times
Have you ever seen Ghostbusters? The scene where they’re warning the Mayor of New York that they’re teetering on the edge of total chaos? The forces of everything they’ve so far contained have been released, leading to a society turned upside down, with dogs and cats living together.
Well that pretty much sums up this weekend.
First of all, I found myself cheering the French in the rugby. The French! Yes they were the underdogs, but what the merde? Secondly, Sunday saw the biggest footballing humiliation in over 50 years for one half of a certain northern city. Well the less said about that debacle, the better. And to top it all off, not only are the Stone Roses back together but Tom Waits has finally released a new album!
It doesn’t take an expert to see we are on the precipice of something momentous right now, and it could take just one last thing to push us over the edge.
The release of our debut album perhaps?
Many said it wouldn’t happen, some had possibly forgotten we were even making one, but as of this weekend we’ve got the foundations for the last track. So yes that may well be the four horsemen you hear saddling-up, right this minute.
It has been a crazy, crazy year so far, so my advice to any of you with something you’ve been planning to get done for a while – get doing it. And if that starts with coming to Camden’s Dublin Castle on Friday Nov 4th, for our next gig then all the better.
