selling copies of the PINKIE CD 'MY LITTLE EXPERIMENT' for seven English
Pounds. Pinkie is Alex from Brighter (and ex-Fosca). If you like Brighter
you will like this. If you don't like Brighter there is something wrong
with you. E-Mail me at the usual address.
I'm also thinking about compiling a DVD of bands from the label- Watch
GENERAL MUSIC LINKS
of the wonderful Brittle Stars (see below) and probably the best record
label around at the moment.
For all things relating to Indie Pop from C86 to Belle & Sebastien.
PAGES- Lots and lots of indie links.
You can buy records and there's a useful message board for all things
indie. In fact anyone who is anyone is listed there. Except us- the
My favourite on-line second hand record store. They link with lots of
dealers, so not only is there a lot of choice and rarer stuff but you
can get the best price between the dealers.
American equivalent to Netsounds. They have UK dealers
just like Netsounds has some US dealers.
REASONS- My friend, Rachel, from
Fosca. Her writings, rantings and diary.
SIN- Fantastic site covering new
bands of every description. It was worth signing up for the newsletter
which gives you best of the week stuff including sites to visit, MP3's
to listen to etc. Unfortunately it has been quiet for some time now.
Long standing Indie/DIY tape and fanzine label. For anyone out there looking
for new indie music from unsigned bands.
MP3- Lots of good indie info and
links and a nice little Shop Assistants/Motorcycle Boy section.
AND FIELD- Famous London Club
where you can dance the night away just like in the old indie pop days.
Plus record label in its own right with a John Peel 'festive fifty' number
one to their name.
DOES IT FEEL- London indie club.
The site has messageboard, twee test and a random Moz generator- shouldn't
BLACK MUSIC- Site to buy all your
indie needs, plus news, links etc. One of the main indie internet ordering
sites for the UK.
band of the 21st century. The site has two videos to download and some
MP3's. MP3 downloads are also available from their former record label
'Happy New Year' and 'Anti Western' and then buy all their records.
indie band from America. Sadly no more I think but records are still available.
There are samples to download which are not to be missed.
BOYS- Phew Wow! A comprehensive
Farmers Boys site with downloads. If you haven't heard of the great eighties
indie pop legends then catch up with them now.
Not quite a full
blown site but some snippets. There's also a contact on the Mick Mercer's
Charlottes Photo Page for loads of other band photos that might be of
interest to pop kids. If anyone out there has any interest in doing a
full blown Charlottes website I'd be happy to make web space available.
TWINS- Not hard to find this through
the search engine but aren't they just the best band ever to walk the
face of the planet?
SIDDELEYS- Should need no introduction
and if they do you ought to be ashamed of yourself.
I do like them and was ashamed
to be British- Nul points indeed.
POP GUNS- They
were fantastic. They are also setting up a website here
but don't hold
your breath- it hasn't been developed in ages.
HUNGER SITE- Click
every day and their sponsors give money. Of course I'm sure their sponsors
have a charity budget anyway which they will give to someone regardless
of whether you click Even so it can't do any harm and may prick your conscience.
There are a few interesting links as well.
All you ever wanted to know about McDonald's and multinationals.
SOCIETY- I'm probably preaching
to the converted or unconvertable.
anti vivisection people.
REFLEX- Political funnies (Bush
concerned at the way Blair keeps hanging around- not a very 'guy' thing
to be doing), Internet Funnies (Microsoft unveil new error messages) and
football funnies (Team USA report on the World Cup soccer football, which
to my shame most of the 'Brits' didn't realise was a JOKE). 'The Depository'
section has most of the funnies.
MEDIA- An excellent guide and
independent view of political events in the UK as an alternative to mainstream
reporting. Good for anyone wanting to get actively involved.
Please suggest links to more politics sites.
K'S WEB- Everything you want to
know about the greatest football team in the World. (Kingstonian Football
did have a link for Scorecheck UK which gave you minute by minute score
flashes on non-league games. Sadly this is down for this season at least
so Sky Sports is the only way to keep up to date. You don't have to buy
anything off Rupert Murdoch- just use up his bandwidth. Saturdays and
some weekdays they have a live scores page.
MY KITTEN- You
can rate people's kittens here (marks out of ten).
You can click on a button which says 'Awwww! How cute!
Show me another!'
HAMSTER CAM- This is currently
the only live Hamster cam I can find on the internet. Sit back with a
few beers and wait for the Hamster to do something. Six in the evening
Brititsh time seems the best time to catch hammy.
Please send me links to more cat sites.

RICHARD'S WISH LIST
I'm interested in doing video/DVD trades with anyone
who might have any indie pop type stuff on video. Plenty of 'rare' stuff
to trade. Would also be willing to trade unedited DVD clips in return
for getting them back nicely trimmed and with a nice menu as it takes
me forever to edit. Name a band and I can let you know what I've got.
I want anything related to Cocteau Twins, Motorcycle Boy, Shampoo, Natalie
Merchant/10,000 Maniacs and Hole. Plus 'Get Smart' videos from the final
series which has never been shown in the UK.
If anyone out there would like to do a site on MCCARTHY then I would love
to help out with it and provide the webspace.
I would like to know what was on the 'Rare UK Bird' record by Camera Obscura
and if anyone has a copy to trade/copy.
Finally, if you have enjoyed this site please click on my anal-retentive
war game link, Click the number shown and get me another soldier
(you don't have to sign up to anything although you might get a pop up
which you should ignore). I currently have 50-odd visitors a day, so 50
extra soldiers a day would make one hell of an army. You could even sign
up and fight alongside the mighty richardbajor. You think I'm joking don't
