Rock n roll aint what it used to be

I went to a mate's gig at the Retreat last night and got given three business cards. And not one of these was from a prospective root.. sorry.. romantic interest.


I came home relatively sober and I don't have a hangover this morning, actually i'm full of energy and bouncing around.


I did, however, have an excellent evening.

I read your first line and thought: "what are they? Fucking A&R wankers?" :)

I don't believe I have ever spoken to an A & R wanker before. I could be mistaken.

It's quick, easy and convienant. What's to not like?

Although it has more to do with taking photos. I have had exactly 0 calls from it.

Are you quite sure none of them were from prospectives? At least, in their own minds? They were all plausibly business related?

First one was a friend of a friend who has started her own business, sew your own doll kits. Second was random girl at the bar, the card was about a facebook group, "You can change the world" Not sure if was her name on the card or not. Third was the business card for the head lining act who I wasn't there to see but the bass player is an ex of mine who I haven't seen for 8 years or so. This card also has the hand written details of a sound guy on it.
