Last night we played the last Little Fish gig. In 2013 we’re starting a new band called Candy Says.
There’s a lot to say about this, but for now here’s Juju’s outro to the book, which she read out at the gig last night, just before we played as Candy Says for the first time:
As the city hangs at my window I think of crawling between the sheets and trying to sleep. When I am sad and so nervous I can’t sleep or so in love with someone that I can’t see, I have to stop myself from pushing everything to a place where nothing matters and having heard read the story of Little Fish, here is one last thing that I want to tell you about; to tell you about my life and the way that it is, to remind you of yours. Everything that we did does matter and it is never too late or too early to learn something.
Je me suis cent fois perdu and after the long journey of Little Fish, Ben and I decided to leave the band there in the ocean, under the horizon.
We started a new band, Candy Says. I can’t read her lips all the time but she is a free spirit. Far more free than Little Fish ever was. Candy Says is our band as of 2013.
Why do this? Because I don’t want to lose faith. The good life doesn’t just come and knock at your door, you have to go out into the world and make it for yourself and I recognize myself for what I am and for the things that I hate. My actions ricochet. I never cease to be surprised by the day, constantly satisfying those little desires of nothing, the simple sensations of existing at all.
How simple. I laugh. In bed. Out loud. At my simple thoughts. And my simple thoughts are my richness and my passion for writing and performing music sticks to me like electricity. It saves me and speaks to me straight.
That is not what Little Fish now says to me, but what Candy Says.
Thanks to everyone who has supported us this far, and we hope to see you in 2013 at a Candy Says show! Have a great Christmas. xxx
