I don't doubt that for a second, David. I've already said that WHITE CITY
gave Pete the chance to engage in some introspection via the character of "Jim,"
& also via the character which represents Pete....."Pete Fountain."
If anything, the Pete Fountain character (Pete) is stuck in a rut of continuing
on with "the band." This, juxtaposed against the "rut" that Jim is stuck in -
No one's leaving *anything* in WHITE CITY (as Mark would have you
believe.) Pete's not leaving the band; and Jim's not leaving White City.
This album's about survival. Not quittings & new beginnings. Or lamentations
about the past. It's about being stuck in your rut & dealing wit it. Consciously
