Quote of the day
The review of a Blazin’ Squad gig, penned by one Lauren Dunne (who I can only assume is an eight-year-old) which appeared in our regional daily paper The Journal, reprinted in its entirety:
“Smoke filled the arena and out of the fog emerged all 10 of the Blazin’ Squad ready to rock the house last night. As they paraded round the stage their voices were drowned out by the incessant screaming of teenage girls. After a shaky start with hits off the first album the boys from Walthamstow really got going. A rare moment of awe happened when one of the lads came on wearing a helmet and started break dancing and spinning on his head and the crowd cheered. The band played hits from both their albums and ranged from pop to R&B and hip-hop. All were wearing baggy trousers and vests. Blazin’ Squad now have two albums, Now Or Never and In The Beginning, and have changed their style dramatically.
Well, now I can rest soundly, safe in the knowledge that the paper is delivering to my doorstep the very pinnacle of music journalism. I look forward to experiencing a similarly incredible “moment of awe” at the next concert I attend.
