We won’t catch them again this time

I am referring to one of my favourite bands ever, Sunny Day Rea Estate. I remember the first time I listened to them on Radio 3, I was amazed about the first LP, “Diary”, but it was not until some years later that I really had access to all their work. The Rising Tide is, simply one of the best albums of all time and let’s say the best in the 2000 decade that is almost about to finish. And it was my 25 birthday’s present.
Now, they are on a reunion tour to be held in North America starting in September, 20 dates that if people are wise, will be sold out. Again, wel will miss them, and maybe for the last time. A worship band, I hope they will tour Europe or they will change their minds. Two of the bands I have missed, Nirvana and them, two of the greatests.

This town is a different town today

This town’s a different town today
This town’s a different town to what it was last night
You couldn’t have done that on a Sunday

That girl’s a different girl today That girl’s a different girl to her you kissed last night You couldn’t have done that on a Sunday

El sabado 17 de marzo asistí a el concierto de Arctic Monkeys en Barcelona. Fue algo parecido a una preview de su inminente gira para presentar su también inminente “Favourite worst nightmare”. El primer single del disco es Brianstorm, no, no es Brainstorm, es Brianstorm, y aquí teneis el video

When the sun goes down live

Tienen ritmo, son originales, tocan bien, son jóvenes y, hasta ahora, sus canciones son muy buenas, esperando cómo será su segundo LP. Podemos estar ante uno de los grupos míticos de está época de la música. Sólo les falta seguir así. Y seguir dejándose la piel en la carretera y sacando disco por año. Están en una época de su vida my creativa y espero que la aprovechen. Los “twenties” están influenciados por esa inquietud no ya adolescente, pero de ver más allá de tus 16 imberbes años, ver la vida en si misma y, por ello es una época especial.
