Smoking Popes Only “Wish We Were”

Shannon Wheeler’s comic book hero Too Much Coffee Man once said, “unrequited love is like hitting your head against a wall that isn’t there.” Power poppers the Smoking Popes‘ brand new album opens with a smashing single that beats its head vigorously against that wall. A gr8 new take on an ancient theme, with lyrics that can only have been written by someone trying, however futilely, to stop wishing, this song hurts so good.
