Is it ever too late for potential? Is there a time when potential finally expires after its sell-by date, and becomes nothing, or frankly, failure? Perhaps, and it best coins The Square Hippies, who have lots and lots of promise, but are slow burners when it comes to realising their wealth of dreamy, quirky rock. Past their sell-by date because of the age of the personnel in the project – it’s difficult not to feel the poignancy of their self image and refuse to put that together with their sound; depressingly it begs the question “if you can’t make it now, how long do you really have left?” According to the band webpage “leaving music behind for our grandchildren” sounds a great deal bleaker.
