I happened to hit London at a promising time. Coldplay had just released ‘In My Place’, Foo Fighters were going orbital, and the Top 40 consisted of acts that actually played instruments. But, of all the music that stuck with me when I returned from my brief time in the great city, it was The Music and their video for ‘The People’ that took me to the Virgin Megastore at the top of Newbury Street in Boston. I was going to school to at UNH and had just returned from London raving about these guys. We trekked down and picked up the record and shortly followed it up with a show in Brighton. Rob was manning the merch booth and Kasabian was opening up… And the show was empty. That’s how underground this was at the time.
Now is a different time… and Rob and the boys have hung their boots… BUT… they left us with a special treat… ‘Ghost Hands’. Enjoy.
