to the people...

Interview were formed in Bath in 1977. After a short stint playing on the London Pub Rock circuit they signed to Virgin and released two albums and four singles. To The People is their third single and it’s a little new wave/power pop gem. Their dark and cautionary tale section of their website is recommended reading.

Ah, BUT - I am so far from grumpy because today I got Last FM going properly and downloaded the widget that links your iTunes up to their network and I've had a blissful few hours listening to 'radio' playlisted by people in my 'neighbourhood'and I've already heard SO MANY good things and, and...DO IT MICK! It's marvellous!

Never heard of Interview - s'OK!

I'll look in to it. I just logged on to Last FM and put Be Bop Deluxe in the search engine and it said 'If you like BBD you might also like Todd Rundgren' which I do of course, but I don't see any connection. How do they know? Are they spying on me??? Am I paranoid?

Davy H said...

Quite possibly. But it's awful good. Once you've plugged in your iTunes it uses the info on what you play most to link you to other people with related tastes and then you can - along with lots of other clever things - listen to a 'radio show' made up of all their stuff.

For every 'Yes, yes obviously' moment I had tonight there were at least three 'Oooh, this is good - who is it?' moments, which is a good ratio as life goes, don't you think?

BTW I put your Mick Karn track in first...you may cry tears of pride.

Sounds good. I'll get myself hooked up. Who knows, you may change someones life with 'Sensitive'.
