I noticed the other day that there’s a general election campaign going on. I halfheartedly followed the first ever TV debate. Once again the great buying public is being offered policies of hope and everything else that’s good. That was Obama’s line, “I offer policies of hope”. What a load of crap that turned out to be, eh?
Of course, we in the music business positively live on policies of hope. Every time you write a new song for the latest pop star wannabe you put it all on black, spin the wheel and hope for the policies of hope to come through for you. Each time you make a new record and send it to people, there it is again, that lil policy of hope, doing the rounds in a world that doesn’t care.
Hope springs eternal. But what will really make a difference is crawling the way inch by inch…
