Finally getting some sun. I love this time of year, but especially up here. It basically doesn’t get dark for 2/3 months.

Interesting the range and quality of artists in a mainstream teenage magazine! Would be very different now…

Was thinking about this recently. Think it was the mid to late 90s when it became harder for independent labels to consistently make the top 40. The majors set up subsidiaries (eg Positiva) to licence tracks from smaller labels to ensure they still got a piece of the action. Radio 1 had the a/b/c playlist (not sure when this came in) so daytime DJs had less say in what they were playing etc.

Put this link in another thread & Im sure most know it but Tony Davis photo of clubbing / football in 90s is great

Any resemblance to myself in one of them is purely coincidental

So true. It echoed the “TotP” framework, i.e., if it’s in the Top 40 we’ll cover it, so a very broad church. What I like about it is they balanced humour, excitement and curiosity so well. They never made fun of the reader and they believed in the power of Pop so passionately. The interview with David Sylvian is great; a little bit funny, but also explored the place of religious systems in his practise. Pretty impressive stuff.

Sadly we have nothing to equate it to anymore. PopJustice used to fill this role but that’s now fading as the guy who ran it appears to be focusing more on his coaching practise.
