- The Green Line by Gilroy Mere
9/10 Joe 18th November 2017
I love The Green Line. Both the bus service and the Gilroy Mere album.
As a massive transport nerd, the green line has always have a place in my heart. Whilst now mainly defunct (devolution, privatisation and all that), one of the four remaining routes trudges along outside of my school. I never miss it, it chugs along the road destined for Uxbridge & Heathrow. There are worries of the route being axed by the council - something that worries a lot of us at school, considering it's a vital bit of public transit for further afield students. But luckily, as long as there are students that need it, the Green Line is there (and on time, believe it or not). And if they ever consider it again we'll smash them.
It's lovely to see someone with such a lovely sound to dedicate an album to the service. The chugs of the diesel engine laid through the album remind me of the post-war era, where the green line meant so much more.
