Noise Next Door – She MightThis is the boys who ruin Henley-on-Thames’ nice reputation’s first single on a major label (Warner Bros) and also marks the ditching of their bright red hair colour. Obviously it is irredeemably terrible, although perhaps a little more bearable than Calendar Girl and Lock Up Ya Daughters. They are, according… Continue reading Video Killed The Radio Star
This CD has been around a few years now but seeing as it’s only £2.99 in Virgin at the moment, there’s no better time to get your copy of what has, for me, been one of the nicest surprises I’ve had from an album. Here’s my review of a very eclectic and interesting CD… You… Continue reading Dirrrty Pop Review: Just Jack – The Outer Marker
I’ve decided that I don’t want my favourite European pop stars releasing over here anymore. This is because, as with Kim-Lian, they tend to arrive with completely the wrong song for the UK market, get compared to someone totally inappropriate (in this case Lolly), be ignored or laughed at by everyone who has any influence… Continue reading Untitled
I review videos from around the globe, and mark them with globes out of 5. Genius, if I do say so myself! Representing the UK: Triple 8 – Good To GoWow! This is actually good! I was a fan of Triple 8 in their heyday (a short and quiet one as it was) but after… Continue reading The International Video Challenge
I was all ready to pay out loads of kronas to import Robyn‘s new album, especially when I heard she’d been working with Teddybears Sthlm on it, but I just thought I’d check CD Wow in case by some miracle they had the CD and, amazingly, they did! For just £8.75! So any of you… Continue reading If you buy this record your life will be better!
With all the 80s pop on TV at the moment with Hit Me Baby One More Time, endless Mania programmes, PWL Radio and all kinds of 80s-themed shows literally popping up on VH1 and Magic, I have been getting quite into the 80s sound recently. I may have only been 2 years and 10 days… Continue reading The Beginners’ Guide To The 80s
The new videos by Bodies Without Organs and Robyn have both just been put online. Click on the pictures below to watch them! Martin nearly naked!Marina flying!Alexander being really weird…oh, that’s normal. Robyn is officially the coolest and most talented girl in pop.
Missy Higgins – 10 DaysThis is a great song from Missy ‘Misdemeanor’ Higgins, but I am quite surprised that she didn’t release Scar, her first big hit in her home country of Australia. 10 Days is really nice too if a little less remarkable lyrics-wise. She comes across as really sweet and pixie-like in her… Continue reading Video Killed The Radio Star
It’s Gavin Degraw!!!!! Although I must inform anyone who still isn’t a fan yet that he couldn’t be further from Norah Jones. He’s good for a start! Basically, ignore their going on about jazz, it’s very wrong.
I have a new favourite web site – ClipTop40.nl, where you can watch in full all of the videos in the Dutch top 40 and many of the artists’ past videos too! It’s rare to find so many good quality current videos in one place on the Internet, so I thought I’d make use of… Continue reading Untitled
