New Single From Town Season Ticket Holder's Band
Friday, 29th Jun 2018 10:04
Town season ticket holder and TWTD Forum regular Marc Newby’s band War Waves release their new single Sleep today.
Marc, who posts on TWTD as chrisswailes, says the band ought to appeal to fans of Frightened Rabbit, The Smiths and The Gaslight Anthem.
“Sleep was my attempt at writing a happier song… which quickly went the way of all the rest. I can't write happy songs,” he told TWTD.
“The new single and release has been (in our terms) a long time coming, so I'm incredibly excited for it to be out there in the world. Songwriting is cathartic for me, so once it's out there it's almost like closure.”
Adam Darowski of darowski.com said of War Waves and Sleep: “Nineties angst may have disappeared from the musical mainstream for a while, but it never left the fragile hearts and nervous minds of many of us.
“We don’t need a distraction - we need music that listens to us and shares our feeling of disenchantment.”
He added: “With [2016 album] All That We Lack, War Waves found their sound. On Sleep, the band refines it, upping the ante with more dynamism from the instrumentation and songwriter Marc Newby’s soul-baring lyrics and vocal delivery.
“This is the type of record you buy, listen to repeatedly and scream it back to the band when seeing it live.”

Show ME, How You Do That Trick by Mullet
“It’s worth remembering the Championship is a really different prospect today, compared to when I invested 10 years ago.”
New Man, New Hope by SpiritOfJohn
As an occasional poet of the third rate variety, I have been scratching around for a few weeks trying to think of a rhyme or song to fit our new manager. Paul Hurst is hardly a name to get the creative juices overflowing, which is due to its no-nonsense shortage of syllables rather than his achievements in the beautiful game.
End of Season Grades by BlueBloke
Football might be one of life’s trivial pursuits in which it’s never quite possible to gain enough distance; I still wince, for instance, at the two Bobby Zamora goals that killed our promotion dream in the 2005 play-offs.
TS Eliot and the Football Waste Land by monty_radio
April is the cruellest month – or so TS Eliot once said back in 1922, the year of the publication of his poem, The Waste Land, when the FA Cup final was done-and-dusted by the end of April.
Away Day Report: Reading by BlueBloke
I wake up at 5.30am. I’d like to say it was in anticipation of watching the Town. Sadly, it owes rather a greater deal to an abhorrently early alarm on Tuesday morning and a very late night on Thursday. Still, now that I’m conscious I may as well start thinking about the day ahead.
