Matt Johnson of The The did NOT disappoint at today's Radio Cineola broadcast. As promised, Johnson spent a good portion of the show discussing inertia and procrastination. He also took calls via Skype, and several musical guests including Tom Bright and Liz Horsman performed The The songs. But Johnson saved the very best for last -- he performed a breathtaking new The The song titled "We Can't Stop What's Coming." Earlier in the program he said he might (or might not) perform , but after overwhelming requests from fans worldwide, Johnson debuted the soulful, powerful, and inspirational track. Despite inertia and procrastination, Johnson proved he is still functioning creatively as ever. Truly Johnson's performance was impressive and brilliant.
Unfortunately for those who weren't listening, the archive of the show has not yet appeared online. It also seems that archives of previous Radio Cineola broadcasts are not online, which means those interested in hearing the song may be out of luck for the time being. On the other hand, The The fans have been pleading with Johnson on social media to post the broadcast and/or song, so it is very possible he'll eventually surrender to the will of the people and upload it soon. Stay tuned.
UPDATE: The archive of the broadcast will NOT be uploaded. However according to a posting on The The's website a documentary about The The which will include footage/audio of the broadcast is in the works:
"We've had hundreds of messages from people who missed the show and who are asking us to replay the 3 hour live broadcast again but the show was a one-off.
We tried hard to alert people with our dozens of posts via social media and our mailing list but it seems many were still unaware.
The 12 hour and 3 hour broadcasts were actually filmed for a documentary about THE THE so at some point in the near future you will certainly be able to see and hear at least part of these broadcasts."
