Happy New Year, boys and girls.

It’s been a while since I waxed lyrical about Pop Music – Blog veterans may get misty eyed when I mention my previous venture - “Big Plans For Everybody”. But most of you will shrug and quite right too. The purpose of this little exercise is to empty my tiny mind of a whole bunch of these random thoughts that are getting in the way of the Important Stuff, whatever that is. No downloadables this time around, I’m afraid – I had to take BPFE down three times for the cardinal sin of posting out of print Kinky Machine ‘b’ sides and Levitation live shows. That was really boring and fiddly. Instead, what you get is pure, unvarnished, erm…stuff. Stuff about Very Big And Famous Bands and stuff about titchy little bands. But it’ll be entertaining stuff(I hope). The plan is to do at least one (sizeable) post a week and maybe even a quickie or two on the way. The comments box is open – please use it. I am, of course, cheating right from the word go and the first few posts are straight reprints from BPFE. They’ll be a brand new post in a day or two.

I love Pop Music. Here are my love letters.


  1. Welcome back, RUSHBO!

    Your old blog was one of the few music blogs I read that really didn't need any files to down to be enjoyable (but I still thank you for the Kinky Machine!) I look forward to reading more of the always scintillating music of your words. I just hope your next post comes before August, 2017. By the way, thanks for lumping the old files together. Still a very enjoyable read, the third plus time though. Can't wait to see the new posts. ~Oxy~
