Music Monday 12th November 2018

I feel like I’m writing an obituary here. It’s sad how often these things happen with my favourite bands.

Just a couple of weeks ago, I was due to see these guys in their native Newcastle. Then, only about three weeks before the show, their entire headline tour was cancelled. I don’t know the full story behind the cancellation, except the official reason being “due to circumstances beyond our control,” but it appears that the band’s singer has a new project, and that doesn’t instill me with great confidence in Boy Jumps Ship’s future. One thing I know is that I will miss these guys. I’ve spent many an enjoyable night with them in the pub after shows, and they are some of my favourite people in the world, so whatever happens, I wish them all the best.

Here is - in my opinion - their finest moment with Burn.
