One of the guys from The Phoenix Foundation walks past you in the street. You’ve got your headphones on and so you do the nod – and he points and guesses what you might be listening to, says, “Aldous Harding is it?” And you laugh and say, “yeah, Party!”
But actually you’re listening to Lewis Tennant’s podcast. At that very moment Lewis Tennant mentions you on his podcast. In an otherwise lovely chat with Murray Cammick.
You make it home to get your bag before heading out into the world again. You’ve left the stereo on and when you get in the house it’s playing The Phoenix Foundation – something about giving up your dreams…
You check your messages, have a quick look at your Facebook feed. First thing you notice is Lewis Tennant saying that he has a new podcast up.
Underneath that someone is telling you to check out Aldous Harding. She is in fact amazing.
You head back out into the world. You leave your headphones at home. Walk on. In silence….
It’s back past a café. And – you had already guessed it. They’re playing Joy Division.
