Exciting Things

Robyn is finally back in the UK charts after a 9 year absense! And back in the top 10 for the first time in a decade, with the physical release still to come so a top 5 or no.1 is still in reach. It’s amazing to think back to when I bought the cassette of… Continue reading Exciting Things

And sure enough,… Continue reading The Next Big Thing?

Sadly it was still not to be, as I listened to the rest and the song revealed the full extent of its rubbishness. This band make… Continue reading New Pop On The Block

New Pop On The Block

Ross Copperman – Found You (Video)I had previously stated that All She Wrote was as good as Ross would ever get, but this one’s actually starting to really grow on me. I think it started when I realised how much it sounds like it should be a single by a Swedish Idol boy, although it’s… Continue reading New Pop On The Block
