Bands sometimes disappear from my playlists for months or in some cases even years without any good reason. I just forget about them for a while, and new or other bands take their place. Then suddenly something, anything, can bring them back to my attention.
Earlier this week I was reading an old Nirvana interview in which Courtney Love was mentioned. This reminded me of the indiepop band with the same name, and in that same fraction of a second subconciously this brought my mind back to Lois, Courtney Love's singer. It must have been years. I'll try to not forget her again.
Yesterday I was re-watching the opening sequence of the movie This Is England, in which some footage is shown of Prince Charles and Lady Diana. Somewhere in the back of my mind a little voice started humming Charles Windsor. Welcome back McCarthy!
Martijn's post about the All Girl Summer Fun Band more directly brought my attention back to them. While looking forward to the new album it's now first time for a little revival.
Moments like this happen all the time. Like meeting old friends, it brings back memories and a feeling of nostalgia. Some friends stay, some are forgotten once again, but it's always nice to see they're still there.
