Just Wishing and Hoping And...

So here I sit having just read a new email update from Geographic Music, and as is ALWAYS the case after reading these updates I'm left feeling very sad over the fact that I do not currently live in Glasgow. I'll let the email explain this feeling for me:


"The Pastels are very pleased to announce that we are opening for My Bloody Valentine this Wednesday 2nd July at the Barrowland Ballroom. The last time we played with My Bloody Valentine was sometime in 1988 at Fulham Greyhound and they were completely amazing then. We're all fans of their music and we've stayed in touch with Kevin through the years - in fact he played with us on our last John
Peel session and did a couple of mixes for us which we loved. We were rehearsing today, taking bets on number of pedals which will be on display and just looking forward. It's the Barrowland so we'll be playing early, maybe around 7.30 pm or so."


I suppose that all I can do now is hope that this particular show will go so well that My Bloody Valentine will just have to bring the Pastels with them when they tour later this year...

Seriously, sometime soon surely one of these bands that everybody else loves and can fill big arenas who've been working with/ been friends with the Pastels for years will insist upon bringing them along for a tour. Right? Right? Please...
