It's 11:30, and I want to put up a quick post... I've been busy on the job, with the little free time I've had spent looking up orgeat recipes. Anyway, time to post a video... I decided to post a bit of bubblegum pop, with a theme that I usually abhor (of the "I can't go on without you" variety). For some reason, I think that Burst by Wales' Darling Buds transcends the genre:
Now that's a perfect slice of pure pop bliss, clocking in at just under three minutes. It's a pity the band didn't receive a greater measure of commercial success, a situation probably brought on by the fact that they were hard to distinguish from bands such as The Primitives:
And, of course, Transvision Vamp:
Hmmm... the late 80's and early 90's were a good era for guitar-pop bands fronted by seriously babelicious blondes. Ah, who am I kidding? Any era is good for that.
UPDATE: I'd be remiss if I didn't pay respects to my favorite blonde 80's-90's guitar goddess from this side of the Atlantic, namely the gorgeous and talented Tanya Donnelly:
I think mikey would disown me if I left Ms. Donnelly out of the equation.
