So why, pp, why were you feeling uneasy???
Well, "we'll" tell ya. It's because two of the numbers on the recently released promo are full studio reworkings of much-beloved demos, "Red & Blue" and "Give It to Me." "Would they measure up?" we mused.
We needn't have worried. Repeated listenings to the demos naturally made us aware of each subtle difference in the studio versions, but they are nice differences, and we love the fuller sound. (Not that we require a fuller sound. Some of the greatest listening experiences in "our" life came through one solitary earplug attached to a tinny, tiny transistor radio, lying in "our" bed in the moonlight as that First Great Wave washed from Albion's shores across the Atlantic back in '63-'64. Damn, freakin' poet(aster)(s) here.)
But we digress. Thank you, Joep, for hooking us up with the promo and for the excellent new song on it. You def keep us happy and we're glad you are, too.
Oh, and how could we forget? The Happy Few will be the support band for legendary Northern Irish punkpoppers, The Undertones, Thursday, May 30, in Amstelveen. As Joep correctly noted, our attendance might be logistically problematical, but we will certainly be there in spirit.
