“The last thing you want in the world is to leave without saying goodbye.”
Without having ever been, it seems that Glasgow and I have some sort of strangely cosmic metaphysical connection. There’s an acute difference between simply enjoying a song and wanting to fall off your chair every time you hear it – which is what a number of Glaswegian groups have done to me in the past few years. Jocasta Sleeps, whether they’ve adopted their name from Greek mythology or the world of Marvel comics I’m still unsure, is the latest young Scottish band to render me inarticulate. Their debut single, “Crayfish Cocktail”, is now at most digital retailers. I’ve opted to post the single’s b-side instead, as I find it a bit more evocative.
