Joan As Police Woman, Eternal Flame [Single] (2006)
This world we live in! What a magical place it can be – I just get done chatting to Joan Wasser for my podcast after being a Joan As Police Woman fan for years – since that magical debut album in fact – and seeing a great gig when I get a message from a Facebook friend in Japan. He’s found two singles and should he get them for me? Yes, yes he should! I very kindly write back. And then flash-forward a week or two and the two singles arrive – including this one; the very track that really made me a fan, sold me on Joan and her sound. I’m a sucker for when a well-known song is evoked by shared-use of the title. Eternal Flame is Joan’s own song, nothing like the Bangles – but I still skipped ahead a track when If first go the album to make sure. The rest is history…and some 13 years on I’d be telling Joan that story in my lounge. Unreal.
