If there is something that I hate is when people say that Malta is too small to compete with the rest of the world. I just sit and think to myself whether these people are too brainwashed and whether they know what is going on around us. We don’t need to win some stupid football game to feel great about this country. We don’t even need to win the Eurovision song contest. And about the latter, why do we continue to be faced with the same song writers and singers one year after the other? For crying out loud, look at our music scene! There are so many great and talented artists that deserve to be up there. I understand that they don’t want to be part of the “losers” that keep on pestering us with their charade one year after the other. Yes we did see some talent emerging from the festival itself but, come on, how many other names can you mention other then Ira Losco?
One group who I am a 100 percent behind is Airport Impressions. Now these people know what they are doing. No one who heard their music without knowing who they were would ever say they were Maltese. Not only that, but even if you had to see their video you would say that they were surely not Maltese. The standard of this video was so impressive, seeing it the first time I just had a feeling. I only know one guy who is so original, so meticulous, precise and has the capability to do such a job on his own, or with minimal help. Jean Pierre Gatt, you outdid yourself with this one. May I say that you impressed a lot of people including myself.
Now enough crap (excuse my English), have a look and tell me if I am right. Great work and let it be known that we are capable of taking up such ventures.
