Imagine my excitement then to discover that a new ALBUM is to be released on November 4th, three years after “The Courage of Others”, their haunting folk epic.
Tim Smith has left the band and the direction has turned more (prog) rocky they claim.
Here’s the first release from it.
I can’t sleep.
My baby’s in Prague.
Her bother’s in Mallorca.
My big grown up girl is smirking at a condom museum in Amsterdam.
My wife is coping, and sleeping.
My other family, known as #FCTfam, is what’s keeping me awake. (Poor Ronan with his smashed voddie.)
Pride, as our Patron, Robin Harper, said on opening night of Godspell last week, is a sin.
But I’m prepared to take the risk of eternal damnation for feeling proud of not only the theatre company I chair, but the family I receive international facebook feeds from (other than my son who is somewhat neglectful in that respect).
It’s Godspell that’s specifically keeping me awake.
I cannot get the intense pride I have for this show out of my head and the real affection I have for everyone involved.
