Because Friday night is Music Night
Another week done at the coalface of capitalism, another week without the plant-killing asteroid of doom looming onto view. My hopes are always dashed. I thought about that asteroid as my choice of End Times music played on the wireless today. It’s a classical piece. The strings were lovely as I drove along in the Autumn sunshine. This is it, I thought, so I looked up at the blue sky in hope … nope, nothing there. Maybe next week.
By the time I get home I’m in a Rock n Roll mood anyway. So that’s what we’re having, from just about the tightest band around at the time. The time being 1978, the place is the Rainbow Theatre in London and Lizzy have Brian Robertson and Scott Gorham on lead guitars. That was my favourite line up. Bob Seger was never a name here and for years I only knew of him as the bloke who wrote a song that Thin Lizzy smashed. The original turned out to be alright too.
Have fun whatever you’re up to this weekend. As always, feel to share your top sounds down below, whether for fun or that special something for the End Times –
