Re: I like short songs

In terms of joyous pop hit, The Foolishness That We Create Through Love Is The Closest We Come To Greatness is a 6 minute long 2 minute pop song. I missed this observation the first time around - it's so perfect! I've often found myself ALMOST putting this song on many a mix and then thinking "eh, ...

Re: London Popfest 2013 - 1 to 3 March 2013

A bit late here but I just wanted to say a HUGE THANKS to the Popfest crew & the tons of nice people we met that weekend. I felt like my brain was going to short-circuit from all the positive energy! We just got home and I'm sitting here trying to remember what my life was like before I decided to r...

Damn, I only know 3 songs from Vol 4 and I LOVE all of them! I need to investigate that one further.

Re: London Popfest 2013 - 1 to 3 March 2013

theres an outside chance English Singles might play in Brighton on the thursday, but i'm totally behind on trying to organise it. Ahh, we went ahead & took an offer in Nottingham that Thursday because we weren't sure! But other than Thurs & Friday we have no other shows and would REALLY like some i...

Belgian Tripels looking for UK gigs around London Popfest!

Hello! We, the Belgian Tripels from Sacramento, California, are coming to London to play the Popfest and desperately need a few more UK gigs to justify the trip! We're open to pretty much any show that's physically possible to arrive at. We have singles out on both Slumberland & Squirmy with a new o...

Re: Things I am listening to now then

Deep Time just played in Sacramento and I had NO IDEA it was Yellow Fever & missed it. We don't exactly get good shows coming here every day so missing one really hurts!

Re: Things I am listening to now then

Oh, hey, this just made my day! I got an email from Vince who does Squirmy saying "someone just ordered the Bright Ideas LP & both singles" and I thought "did it get posted on Anorak??". Thanks Daniel for putting it up here because it didn't feel right putting it up here myself! Anyway, I'm VERY hap...

Re: Lost/Unsung indie bands of The Mid 80's

Gol Gappas' 'Dinner With Nougat' EP is one of my all time top pop records. Perfect record. Apple Boutique - 'Love Resistance' comes to mind as well - Phil King from Felt's band. Though maybe that has more of a cult following than I know (it does have a Felt connection after all!). Emily - 'Irony' EP...

Ahhh! Just got an email from The Rickshaw Stop saying you guys had to cancel the SF Popfest show? I can't believe I'm missing you again. I haven't been this excited for a show in months! I'm about to ride over to my friend's house to drink some beer & on the way I will blast your brilliant CD in a d...

Re: the go-betweens

So glad someone posted Robert's 'True Hipster' piece about Grant - I missed that & it's very moving! No surprise there I guess. It's hard for me to read about Grant dying even now. Many of my musical heroes have died but this was the first one that truly hit me. My world was suddenly a less interest...

Re: Debsey Wykes (Dolly Mixture and other bands)

Hey all, first post here. I signed up for an account to respond to the Sarah documentary thread but by the time I finally got an acceptance email, the thought had passed. Anyway, I just got notice from Rough Trade that the pre-order for the LP version of The Demonstration Tapes has started. Strangel...
