i blame the (non) corporate overlords for the social media push. we are required very, very, VERY strongly encouraged to maintain and online presence and playlist. we actually have to link our SM account when we apply for a show each quarter.

Annie Lennox's voice is dreamy isn't it?
My first memory of her was seeing The Tourists on Top Of The Pops when I was a kid.
They were a great band too
