Flashback Snap Scene: The Superjesus, Max Watts, 20th Sept 2019

Do you miss going to gigs? We do. While we’re all in lockdown we’re looking back at some of the gigs we’ve shot over the years. Hope you enjoy the trip down memory lane!

The Impossible is classic Superjesus fare, with head-banging guitars and Sarah Mcleod’s iconic voice. The lyrics are thought-provoking, left of centre, and, in frontwoman Sarah McLeod’s own words, “an unexpected, undeniable banger”! Explaining the inspiration behind the song, McLeod says, “I’m fascinated with moon landing conspiracies. When researching on the net one day I came across a Stanley Kubrick ‘confessional video’. No one knows if the footage is legit or not, but in it, he confesses to staging the moon landing on the set of 2001 A Space Odessey. He called the fiasco his ‘greatest masterpiece’. The confession video was designed to be kept under lock and key, only to be released after his death. Upon further research I found an article with the headline LANDING ON THE MOON IS SCIENTIFICALLY IMPOSSIBLE…and boom, out came the song!”
