HEADED FOR A FALL

 

By The Mangoes

 

Billy and his band ("Billy and the Kidz") have been struggling on the road, playing a series of miserable gigs. At a grimy truck stop Billy gets a text message telling him that the band has been dropped from the label and the tour has been canceled. Disheartened, Billy and his roadie Pablo return home only to discover the lovely barista Candy singing as she prepares their drinks. Seeing her potential Billy is able to convince her to join him in California for a possible career in music. They score a minor dance hit with the song "Stupid Chorus" and happily become romantically involved. However, Candy quickly tires of Billy's domineering Svengali ways. She wants to pursue a new musical direction and tells him she needs to end their relationship. Candy quickly hooks up with a sleazy A&R man and Billy is devastated. He becomes obsessed with Candy and begins stalking her. Ultimately she puts a restraining order on him to end the harassment. Candy goes onto greater success with hit after hit while Billy becomes more bitter and disenchanted. In his dilapidated home he stares at Candy's face on the cover of a magazine and ponders his uncertain future…
