It will all come around again, in time
It's a matter of timing, as put-upon Uxbal whispers in his bitter-sweet and quite biutiful way. Trying to look forwards, but knowing your fate is sealed. And I still think Bivouac will get their time in the sun, retrospectively. Even a small, perhaps, passing recognition that they made some fantastic sounds, such as 'Drank', along the winding, grungy Derby roads they travelled in the early 1990s. Yes, that's Derby. Not Seattle. It is deeply unfashionable, I know this, but grunge was just a part of my time, eh. And no matter how hard you try, you can't ignore your musical heritage and roots. It all comes back, as a matter of history, biography and everything else that really matters. Play loud. Wear a plaid shirt. And most importantly, like Uxbal, do not be afraid.
Bivouac - 'Drank' (5.39)
All about the music, all about the image.
