They spoke to Mickie Most as they wanted to make a solid pop album. Chris Thomas had his arm in a sling a...

I also think Pulp took heart from the Pets early success. During the recording of their independent breakthrough single My Le...

Re: Please 35 years old today

Well-said, fella. I listened to the album tonight while walking through North London streets amidst a fair few puddles and shadows, with the City skyline hovering into view. Not much in the way of nightlife adventure in these uncertain times and I fall between two stools of being far too young in Ma...

Re: Recording of DJ Culture and Was It Worth It?

Thanks for that, some interesting arrangements in that set.

Rent sounds so bad-ass, a real tour de force. Interesting harmonies in Love comes quickly, maybe doesn't always work. And great to hear a live version of Was It Worth It? of course.
