Blimey (quaint english expression) its all been getting a bit too heavy in here recently!
Thought I'd cheer people up by highlighting the revival of Peter Astor (ex
Loft/Weather Prophets/solo creation artist and indeed occasional Conspirator)
who in similar fashion to Pat had been pretty much forgotten about in the UK.
Then after releasing a few low key 7" singles on various obscure labels
under a variety of guises, puts a compilation of these singles out to receive
more publicity than he has had for practically a decade - decent review in
the NME and Select, 8/10 in the Times (of all places) and recommended buy in
the Independent. So go out there and buy The Wisdom of Harry and dream - it
could be Pat next! Maybe the true independents are on the way back.
Hope the US dates are as good as everyone expects - all the best!
