really want to know about The Indigo Sunrise, you need to know about
Remember Jealousy. At best, Remember Jealousy were entertaining power
pop obsessed kids with far too much time on their hands and a fair few
riffs and ideals nicked from the Wildhearts. At worst, they were a bunch
of underachieving, egotistical losers who revelled in pissing people
off (at least, that's what their fans would say!) Remember Jealousy
featured, amongst others, me, Woody & Craig, and when I look back
on the time we were together (1994 to 1998) it reminds me exactly how
many opportunities we wasted. Pisser, huh? Oh well. We got a few EPs
together, which are fondly recalled by a few Horsham music fans once
in a while. But I think the main thing we used to do was piss people
off! I really couldn't say why this was. Maybe we were just to darn
good? Maybe we were more rubbish than the Sheffield Wednesday defence?
Probably we were just cocky as hell. But other local bands really used
to cheer up when we turned up at joint gigs
err, not! We'd occasionally
bomb out shows at a moment's notice (or none at all - Inn On The Prom,
Worthing!! Haha!) just to keep the promoters and venues on their toes,
and cement their beliefs in those ever so safe tribute bands. If we'd
been more organised I think we could have actually done quite well.
But we weren't. Anyway, what use are regrets if you're not going to
regret them once in a while eh?
