I’ve mentioned Frank Turner before who’s lyrics particularly ring a chord with this alcoholic.
Saw Frank perform again last week on Southsea Pier, a most dated and peculiar venue which is like stepping back to the 50’s. Crowd were pretty dead for the first two support acts but Frank soon got them going a consummate professional.
He played some of his old classic tracks as well as a few off the new album Love Song and Ire. My favorite being Photosynthesis about putting behind hedonistic days but refusing to join the rat race and succumb to mundane conformity and has with the fantastic chorus that titles this post.
And I won’t sit down
And I won’t shut up
And most of all I will not grow up
Here’s the video shot at a school with some great kids in it. Some of whose parents were at last weeeks gig.
