Tuesday 9 April
Off to New York again - the pot of gold at the end of a very long
I have to say, and I think I speak for everybody here, that NY
has to be the greatest place on Earth, and I live in Splott! Very
few places will fill you with the same excitement and energy again
and again, every time you ride into town.
So, the usual routine starts again. Check into hotel, go to the
gig (today being the Luna Lounge on Ludlow Street), soundcheck and
then eat pizza!
We stand on stage ready to play and the room looks pretty empty.
Then suddenly, as if by magic, as the first soulful strum of This
Is How It Ends fills the room, an audience appears! A few
familiar faces and a few new ones, but all listening to the final
onslaught of Scooter Power Pop!
So, this 'IS' how it ends. The end of the line and were going
out in style. As the words "Thank you for listening, this is
the last song of the tour", leave my lips, I think we all felt
an unexpected lump in our throats. It has been an epic and emotional
We hung out at the bar until 2am drinking, talking, reminiscing
on the past 5 weeks. Then with one resounding cry of We will
be back", we leave!
