BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN – DARKNESS ON THE EDGE OF TOWN. A CAT Club presentation.

“Darkness was my samurai record, all stripped down for fighting.” Bruce Springsteen on his sublime 4th album.
Darkness on the Edge of Town features Bruce Springsteen at the absolute top of his game, lyrics and all. The production is top notch as well. There is a clear change of direction and sound going from “Born to Run” to “Darkness.” Bruce is taking no prisoners this time. This album shows him in his rawest and grittiest form yet. There are no more orchestrated rock epics. No more songs about wishful thinking and following your dreams. It is like the boy in “Born to Run” who sang about leaving town with his girl and living happily ever after never made it. He got stuck in his dead end home town. All his dreams were crushed and his girl cries herself to sleep every night. All he can do is man up and go to work every day like his father did before him. A true classic album in every sense. (Sputnik Music).

PRESENTED BY PATRICK HUMPHRIES.
The celebrated author and journalist has written books on Springsteen, The Stones, Tom Waits, The Beatles, Nick Drake, Elton John and Van Morrison and has contributed to Mojo, The Observer, Evening Standard, The Times, Record Collector and many, many more. He also writes and presents documentary programmes for BBC Radio 2 and Radio 4 and he’s met and had discussions with Bruce on several occasions.

JEFF MATTHEWS will be in the interviewers chair. Jeff was the editor of the Springsteen Rendevous fanzine and has seen the man himself in concert over 80 times all over the world.
