From the deck: 5:30pm, Bayside Melbourne


Everybody says this place is beautiful,
and you'd be so crazy to say goodbye.
But everything's the same, this town is pitiful,
and I'll be gettin' out as soon as I can fly.

Kings of Leon, 'Talihina Sky', Youth and Young Manhood 2003

It's no secret that I heart the Kings of Leon big time - big, big time - so the news that they're seemingly on the brink of self implosion is a little worrying.

Like most other creatives forces theirs exists on a delicate balance, most recently shown in a documentary at the Tribeca Film Festival.

Here's hoping for many more years and much more wonderful music from these guys.
