too late to be forever, too soon to be the end

So over the past few days there have been heaps of exciting new music, tour dates, record pre-orders and the rest it's all a bit overwhelming.
I'm going to try and collate a bunch of brilliantness from our friends across the web and post later this week.

On a personal note though, my heart skipped a beat when Chas tweeted about some lightyear news earlier today.
If you haven't heard of the seven naked men for every occasion it's like living with only half your zelda hearts filled up...
There are some awesome bands about these days, but if you were lucky enough to grow up and catch the likes of Adequate seven, Captain everything, Five Knuckle (usually all on the same bill for £3!) you'll know that there was something really special about the UK DIY punk 'scene' at the time. Despite the glass ceiling and never ending line of labels/agents/promoters fleecing these bands they toured incessantly and genuinely touched the hearts of at least all of my friends!
Lightyear were a force of nature, a whirlwind of mentalists who also happened to write 2 of my favourite albums ever. If you haven't heard them get googling or ask an older friend who harps on about the good old days, they'll have a copy...

Anyway, all we have to go on at the moment is an official facebook page, and as of 11:26pm, 365 likes and a collective will to see something...

Get involved, maybe 1000+ likes for a band that originally split up in 2003 will be too hard to ignore? Back then Nelb's dad told me that their third album was going to be their masterpiece...
