Hey WFNX listeners and party people,
Hurricane Sandy might be able to wreak havoc on our party, but it can’t crush the spirit of our re-launch. We’ve decided to postpone tomorrow night’s event at the Lansdowne Pub in Boston, but you can still be a part of the long-awaited WFNX resurrection -- join us online at wfnx.
The last time I saw JAMES at a large-scale outdoor music festival, the year was 1997 and the scene was a brewing tempest called Lollapalooza. The influential 30-year-old British rock band was supporting a sharp new record Whiplash, but in reality, was still buzzing off the unlikely success of late-night 1993 MTV hit “Laid,” a single that crashed the stateside modern rock underground and in the UK got them swept up as an auxiliary, almost elder-statesmen members of Britpop's cultural tidal wave.
