Tickled Pink by Thundera


while we’re Mostly Mozart (and the greatest hits of Messrs Haydn and Bach – the more baroque the better really), sometimes we take a moment to remember our (rather mis-spent but full of stories-to-tell-at-some-point) Youth….


and recall the dark cavernous clubs (south of the river where the cabs don’t go) of London and delve a little into the psyche and remember those raw and angry bands of perfectly-post-Punk.

so we were Thrilled to get a delicious note from someone who was a very delightful friend during our Life in Manhattan about a Band and when we took a listen to their recent appearance on a show oh! memories of watching-bands and walking-across-bridges-at-3AM in something completely unsuitable-as-daywear came f l o o d i n g back.

a picture please!

we wrote back instantly….

and here they are: Thundera!

Sandshot2and their music is included on this most splendid compilation!

album-reviews-StickShiftRecordsfor our Viewers outside the USA, we should point out that “northeast” here does not refer to the popular music of Manchester (which would actually be more “north-west” but we did a double take too) but this region as denoted on the following map:

northeast_1oh, you’re most welcome (we know how all this virtual international travel can be confusing).

so – ladies and gentlemen and those as yet-undecided or so modern that one feels a lack-of-definition freeing and glorious – we bring you Thundera!

careful with the mosh pit darlings, apparently they have Rules these days – best be warned.

bravoA, ladies!

may your future be filled with large stadiums and travel-at-the-front-of-the-plane.

wouldn’t that be delicious?

About teamgloria

I used to make my living from writing. And then it all stopped and so I went and did something else, part of which entailed a whole new look from Brooks Brothers (it wasn’t really me, but it was necessary). But a decade later I started to write again (during nights and weekends and frustrated lunch-times and long haul business travel) and one of the things I wrote (or came to me – as I do believe in the whole Muse concept) was a character called Gloria. Gloria was a trainee angel and sat “up there” waiting for her first assignment. To occupy the hours she should have been studying humans and their foibles, she spent her time enjoying the new celestial movies-on-demand channel and became obsessed by Doris Day. So you can imagine the drama that unfolded when she came to Earth. Quite a shock to the system. But Gloria was determined to see Manhattan through the eyes of a vintage Doris Day movie and something magical started to happen – to me too. Because I started to do the same thing and life became easier (and then I got Tobias the tumor which changed the trajectory, for now). There are a lot of glorious people, places & things that help me get through my day – they make my life great – and so I call them “team gloria” (although they don’t usually know that). So I thought I’d start documenting them, and looking out for new people, places & things on a daily basis, and sharing them with you (whomever you are – do say hello. Oh, and tell me who your team gloria is :-)
