We Were Promised Jetpacks

I really don’t know the band We Were Promised Jetpacks (just listened to a bit now) – but I’ve seen the name popping up a couple years now in emails for concerts and it’s an incredibly evocative name for me.  Just enough of a kid’s petulant condemnation mixed with dashed hopes and the hazy promise of a well visited (and better) dream world.

Kind of like “Change We Can Believe In” (transformed to “Spare Some Change?”) with a 50s feel to it.

[Editor Note: I should add my sympathy is with the kids – the “adults” lied to them (and continue to lie to them)]
