An Open Letter to Sound Control

Dearest Sound Control,

We know it’s not your fault, we aren’t mad

We’re simply a little sad…

We can’t blame people for wanting to live in a city of culture.

But how do we let that culture grow,

If the levels of independent venues is forever low.

First Sankeys for flats,

Then a load of chat.

Maybe Star and Garter,

But you were instead the martyr.

Those memories stay,

Of where the bands were to play

Distant memories is what you’ll soon be,

Though you were much more to me.

A home away from home

And for a replacement I will roam.

Thank you Sound Control,

You really had a role

In our live music community,

Creating a sense of unity.
