Hello Popeyes and of course, Popears.

Just a quite hello and howdy christmas to the few people who stumble upon this - my tiny word spackle buried thankfully under this wonderful enclave of digital audio recording data (incorporating 'song data was unsubmitted due to tagging faults' message centre!!!! LOLF RMOA! KLF!!!!)

I'm still running the old 'blog' style blog over at benbaker.blogspot.com - why not come check it out, check me out and then FUCK OFF BACK WHERE YOU CAME FROM, GYPEYES.

Ahem. Sorry. I drink quite a lot of Gaviscon.

Thinking of doing an "Actual Guilty Pleasures" CD some time, full of deeply unfashionable (or just plain unheard of) but lovely pop rocky acts (mostly from the mid 90's) that keep sneaking back onto my mp3 player -a few ideas follow.

Kenickie - "Killing Fantasy",
Carter USM - "Especially 4 U",
Midget - "Optimism",
Symposium - "Disappear",
Silver Sun - "Trickle Down",
Radish - "Little Pink Stars",
China Drum - "All I Wanna Be",
Honeycrack - "Go Away",
Carrie - "Caring Sharing Song",
Ultrasound - "Kurt Russell",
Cecil - "Hostage In A Frock",
Northern Uproar - "From A Window",
Kerbdog - "Mexican Wave",
Chicks - "Let Me Go"

- and many ecteras. Any ideas from you cats that would fit with this goregous compilation? You know you want it. Let the Carrie dribble down your chin. Mmmm....David Devant-y.

    She just presented the first episode of the dire music show Transmission on Friday on Channel 4. It would probably be ok if they didnt try to fill it with loads of 'alternative music lol' comedy shit. It'd improve immeasurably by being put out at 6pm so they had to actually think of jokes, as well as providing some much need quality pops pre-going out. Oh and saw Ms L play live at the Leeds Festival in 2000. It was unbearably exciting and still makes me do giddy noises. I am a 25 year old heterosexual man with a man's beard and everything. But just thinking about that gig....

    i'm so utterly impressed that anyone still listens to any of those bands! carrie are (were?) one of my favourites. did you by any chance buy a compilation back in '97 called Danger Zone? i ask only because it has a number of those song on it

    I didnt, actually. All of the songs were taken from my own singles and albums. I've always been an obsessive music buyer / downloader. I still like lots of new music and the like, but it was nice to make those compilations and relive a few tiny memories. Saw Carrie twice. Once supporting Feeder in 1997 (along with Everclear) and at a free festival in Leeds the following year where the lead singer kept getting his knob out which really nobody needed to see. Not THAT many times, anyway...
