It’s a lifetime, yet no time at all, since Deacon Blue first roared their gospel according to hope, work, dignity, and Scottish towns beset with rain. We’re still taking cover under their words. Everything and nothing’s changed. We still need their songs in our cities of love, in our hearts, in our homes, in these hurricane days.
