Fancy A Walk? Let’s Go Down Abbey Road (Live)
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood.
And I said “I can’t be arsed to walk. I’m going to take that massive submarine that’s casting the fantastic hue all over everything.
It’s faster and they have access to a lot of LSD.”
Beatlemania just won’t die.
And why should it? We have so little to believe in otherwise.
God is dead and so are the Beatles. But at least we have photographic proof and two living members of the pantheon to unequivocally prove that they did actually exist.
It’s time for religious observance.
In celebration of Abbey Road’s 50th anniversary, some of Australia’s most respected musicians and members of iconic groups, collectively known as ARC – Kram (Spiderbait), Mark Wilson (Jet), Davey Lane (You Am I) and Darren Middleton (Powderfinger) – all self-confessed Beatles tragics, will faithfully and lovingly bring The Beatles’ most audacious creation to life on stage, performing Abbey Road in full, from start to finish, followed by a second set comprising of a selection of hits spanning the breadth of The Beatles’ career and catalogue.
Consider Kram, Mark Wilson, Davey Lane and Darren Middleton as the four apostles. Or the four horseman.
The brilliant thing about religious dedication to the Beatles is that there is no recorded difference between the good and the evil.
Why else would children be taught to sing ‘Octopus’s Garden’?
