Europe  : Final countdown, The

I think the marketing opportunities presented by the millennium have not been fully explored. Surely there's still time for someone to record a cover of [a]REM[/a]'s 'It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Pissed Off Because I Can't Find A Pub That Doesn't Cost #163;200 To Get In, And London Has Been Invaded By Drunken Aussies And These Es I Got From Darren Which Were "Really Good Ones, Mitsubishis" Are Actually Elephant Laxative And I Can't Get Transport Out Of Here Until January 4 And What's That Plane Doing Nosediving Towards Us?)'.





But then it might be a bit pointless, as the record shops wouldn't be open to sell the fucking thing. Personally, I'm waiting for time travel to be invented so I can stitch up the New Year's Eve 2524 market with my rerelease of Zager & Evans' 'In The Year 2525'. If man is still alive, that is...





Merry Christmas. Happy millennium. See you on the other side, suckers.
