POPsounds 006: Song For Dan Treacy
Heard a few nights ago that Dan Treacy of Television Personalities is in a coma. This made me quite sad as I love that band, mostly for Treacy's witty and satircal lyrics. They were always so personal and en pointe with social commentary of the time. Something all writers should aspire too. Today I plan on listening to all their records in hope that some magic happens and he gets better.
