The Roaring Days are the sound of the lock in, the look in, the next beer that changes the night.

Its four on the floor and boots on the table, its late night makeups and afternoon wake ups, sunsets and cowboy silhouettes, letters from Brendan Behan and the kick drum of the MG’s, it’s amps louder than everything else and sweat and hope and the true soul roar of 1000 no name bar bands lost to the passing whims and winds of time.

It’s the way things used to be, right now in colour on fire in real time with real purpose. Raw power and maximum r&b, the way it should be and the way you remember it to be.

It means everything and nothing at all and most of all its fun, furious fun. Handshakes, back slaps and one more 3 minute round.

Rock n roll with only enough pretension to get it out the door and the amps out the back of the car. Strummer, Jones and E-Street and the Famous Flames and the big riff tied in with the small mercies. All the good things all at once, doing its best, making it sing, the last long real thing until the next one.
