One of my friends asked me for some advice about how he could change his life. “I’ve come to the conclusion,” he remarked, “that I will never be happy unless I’m making a living as a musician.”
“Well,” I said, “you might as well go for it, then. The worst that can happen is that you’ll fail, and be only as unhappy as you are now.”
So he did. He’s now the drummer for a band called The Modern. They’re playing gigs almost every other evening and he says the schedule’s quite exhausting, but when you see him play you just know he’s having the time of his life.
The Modern’s new single, Jane Falls Down, hit the UK charts at number 35 this week. If you’re into solid performance, dance beats, gorgeous glam, exquisite electropop, new experiences, or the kind of tunes that play themselves repeatedly in your head for days, go get it – downloadable from iTunes and MSN, and available in all good record stores except mine, which had annoyingly sold out.
