This particular entry is mainly just to document this situation so I can reflect on it later, or perhaps somebody who’d appreciate it can stumble upon it through the magic of google (and I have confidence that someone who would appreciate it will stumble upon it, given the subject matter).
I was sitting in McDonald’s over lunch, reading Bill Drummond’s 45. I was on the chapter “From the Shores of Lake Placid,” his recollections on the Liverpool music scene of the late ’70s and early ’80s, particularly as relating to his time as the manager of Echo & the Bunnymen and The Teardrop Explodes.
As I was finishing the chapter, getting to the point where Drummond alludes to what would become of the bands as they moved out of their pre-determined 5 year windows of brilliance, “Get the Message” by Electronic began playing over the in-house music.
Like I said, I’m sure that has to mean something. Maybe I already know.
