I went through a phase when I was a music journalist of collecting badges, mostly in the late 90s and early 2000s. Above are a few. Can you name some of the bands? More to come. Meanwhile, a great song with ‘Badge’ in the title!
Thrilled to bits that some of my Indie music heroes are following me on Twitter. Sad I know. But a follow from Cornershop and Mansun’s lead singer Paul Draper – means the world. Also a ‘like’ from Tim Burgess. Ta – very much. Who could forget ‘Take It Easy Chicken’ from Mansun and ‘A BrimfulContinue reading “Happy for some follows from Indie heroes”

Fool’s Gold – Stone Roses When Doves Cry – Prince Modern Love – David Bowie True Faith – New Order Golden Brown – The Stranglers
Twitter can sometimes just be a long list of trolls, boasts, announcements and there are rarely any jems. Until the lead singer of the Charlatans created “listening parties”. Essential for anyone who loves 90s music, or just loves good music. Well done Tim!
Still on my nostalgia trip. I am going through the decades, more to come from the 80s (late 80s) rather than full-on capitalist 80s! Comfortably Numb – Pink Floyd Go Your Own Way – Fleetwood Mac Come Together – The Beatles Instant Karma – John Lennon American Girl – Tom Petty
