slowdive – star roving (2017)
a letter to….one’s blissfully unaware teenage self.
dear (insert name here)
remember this. nobody knows anything. politics is both useful and useless. love, hate and wisdom are subjective. religion is a lifestyle choice. consistency is the exception rather than the rule. change is painful but necessary.no one is perfect. sex is perhaps the key driving force in our lives, ambitions until it is not. the world is round perhaps. nature could give two little fucks. all the bands you thought were cool and romantic, who split up will reform at some stage typically for non idealistic, mundane incentives that pertain to the consequences of inhabiting a godless, capitalist free market society. e.g., My Bloody Valentine, Slowdive, Ride, Jesus & Mary Chain, suede etc. **
