I was going to write a diatribe against religious zealots that seem only content when they are killing those who don’t share their fairytales about invisible Dads etc. Yet after a day of horrific news I was moved to tears by this wonderful Nick Lowe lyric at Elvis C’s Basingstoke show last night. It replaced the angry ranting John Lydon screaming PIL’s ‘Religion’ in my head.
Sadly one of the stalwarts in Nick Lowe’s bands over the past 30 odd years has died aged just 62. Nick has developed into a showman that can hold a show together on charisma alone but back in the early 80’s it often seemed that Bobby Irwin was the glue holding it all together.
