Apologies for the blog silence as of late. My health hasn’t been the best for the past couple of weeks (nothing serious) but I’ve been unable to work on any new posts. I hope to return in a week or two.
In the meantime, I shall leave you with a video of one of my favourite bands, The Lords of the New Church. This particular track is ‘Goin Downtown’ from their second album ‘Is Nothing Sacred?’ released in 1983. The performance is from January 1984, filmed at the legendary Marquee Club on 90 Wardour St.
Those of you who are aware I am working on a rock novel; may be interested in knowing that this is one of those songs that’s inspired me whilst writing, and that Stiv Bators, as well as Johnny Thunders and Pete Murphy have all played a hand in influencing my novel in one way or another.
