When you arrogantly believe the Circle Jerks recorded the original version of "I Wanna Destroy You" and Robyn Hitchcock shows up and corrects your sorry asre...

So exactly are these 90's power pop that people are carrying on about, because I listened to a ton of major label and indie power pop in the 90s.  never really considered Too Much Joy a power pop band..

off the top of my head the better known power pop bands of the 90s would have been

Semisonic
Fountains of Wayne
Sloan
Posies

I was also listening to

Love Nut/Myrcale Brah
The Caulfields
Greenberry Woods
T.Rex

WMUC has moved from 88.1 to 90.5

Plus, they have tripled their power. 30 watts now, baby!

someone may need to check on smackie when he sees this one..

The Welsh band Rusty Nutz self described as "experimental noise pop group" have released an album called "We tried to make it big but something somewhere went wrong and we can't work out what that something is" on

21 Formats!!!!

Of which I guess at least 7 are obsolete formats... not sure about the status of  DATs,

https://lavendersweep.bandcamp.com/album/the-rusty-nutz-we-tried-to-make-it-big-but-something-somewhere-went-wrong-and-we-cant-work-out-what-that-something-is

Gonna grab this one on the boring Digital download format...  A very UK punk influenced album, hearing the likes of Still Little Fingers on it.

Had to look up some of the cassettes formats this is on including   Elcaset, Digital Compact Cassette, Sound Tape Cartridge, Audio Craft Cassette and NT Digital.

Both Elcaset and Sound Tape Cartridge were attempts to bring reel to reel quality to the Cassette format.  The Elcaset is totally wacky format.

It’s the number of physical formats involved in the release silly

And you do know Wales has a rich history of bands beyond SFA and Tom Jones

not sure about the status of  DATs,

dead format.  other than a few studios that still use it to transfer high-quality copies, and trance DJs who still have collections of their late 90's/early-2000's pirated white label copies, no one is using DAT anymore.

So I guess the fate would be the same for the compact video cartridges as well then…

While listening to a marvelous new Gwenno album I realized how much I was missing get the chance to play some favorite tunes before bands at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC. So I concocted this playlist as what I would spin at an upcoming Franz Ferdinand show.

Haven't spun there in years, not even sure they have the equipment there anymore.  Most bands bring their own playlists at this point and this is the first show I've been interested in seeing and or spinning in awhile.

Right. Well that’s a bummer….

Look me up if you end up going!
