Alternative rocknyc is not at home every night binging on Bewitch and Maverick (clue: Brett DID NOT NEED A BROTHER) , Alternative rocknyc is the same gadabout website around town going to concerts every other night, and if you include Alyson Camus that would change to every night.
I bought a ticket for ABC at Sony Hall on Tuesday and it has been postponed -where the chances are excellent it will be cancelled) and the sadness is ABC were a real bucket list band, The Lexicon Of Love might well have been the only time lanky heartthrob, blonde playboyish and sensitive Martin Fry has ever rewarded supply with demand but it is one of the best albums of the 1982s, and listening to9 it today the sensitive New Wave pop star met disco love songs head. Plus? So immensely quotable that I quoted him a sentence above.
After LOL, Martin just couldn’t write em the way he once did, and his career has stalled just like Bob Dylan’s motor (obscure reference? Here) for the washed up star (same Bob, same song).
Even so, I will finally see ABC, if only at Alternative rocknyc.
