An End Has A Start Fan Memory
A Ton of Love
From : Oliver Cadman
I was 6 when I’d first ever heard of Editors, way back when The Back Room came out in 2005. The razor wire riffs and the deep voice of Tom Smith strangely allured me, I was also old enough to recognise the darker atmosphere they exhibited over their peers such as The Killers and Franz Ferdinand, it was simply so different to anything else I’d heard at the time. It seemed to be a time where I couldn’t escape them, with now defunct music channels playing Munich and All Sparks being featured as the song during the closing credits of the TV show Primeval. Mum and dad were the real fans though, turning up to some shows during the An End Has A Start and In This Light and On This Evening runs. I have fond memories listening to those first 3 albums in the car on family road trips across the UK, I think I’d listened to those albums front to back at least a couple dozen times over the years. Coming into my late teens I rediscovered Editors after years of fluctuating music tastes, I’m happy to say I’ve gone back to my Indie/Post Punk roots. Finding In Dream 2 years too late in 2017 is my biggest regret and missing out on The Weight of Your Love was another misstep for me. I’m so glad I caught up for the release of VIOLENCE in 2018 and saw the band at Godiva Festival for the first time in Coventry and their Headlining run with Talos the month after in October. I’ll never miss a release or a tour again after those experiences - Thank you, Editors.
