I definitely see myself being very good mates with this band in the future. Hopefully they plan on leaving Australia at some point soon, because I have no plans of heading that far South and "east."
The world is round, so how can we have a West and an "east?" There can only be one lateral direction, naturally, and it's West; "east" is a construct.
North and South exist because if South were where North was we'd all fall of the Earth.
Listen, I'm not here to debate your politics. Please just enjoy the music.
