Regina Gently - unknown

A life in rock'n'roll gives many chances for rebirths and reinventions, so while the 2008 version of me would have been excited at the idea of a fundraiser featuring members of Forest City Lovers, Spiral Beach, Gentleman Reg and Magneta Lane, the 2017 version of me was perhaps more excited to see these musicians brimming with the energy of new music and new ideas. Organized by LOLAA to raise funds to rebuild Puerto Rico after hurricane Maria and Mexico after the earthquakes, there was a lot of positive energy all around throughout the night.

"It's been a long time, baby," says Regina in this track, one in a full set of new material. Even with the retiring of the Light Fires moniker and the consolidation of all stage and song endeavours under one name, the new tunes (including this one which sounds like a club remix of a Hedwig number) had more of the the same high-kicking energy.

* Does anyone know the title to this one? Please leave a comment!
