I was just talking to poster girl today about BBMak and then Popjustice go ahead and mention them in their weekly newsletter. How weird. BBMak were a band that were truly unappreciated in their time...I truly loved both of BBMaks albums. They played all their own instruments, wrote great power pop songs and had the looks and voices to back it up. Why they weren't 2000 times huger than they were continues to baffle me to do this day. Their second album with tracks like Staring Into Space and Get You Through The Night remains a modern day pop classic. Sadly my love for them didn't translate into chart success and the band soon split up :(

They also contributed a song to some Disney soundtrack (Treasure Planet? Oh Disney!) which was also a corker of a song and really, Rooster would have been much better off doing something like this instead of their piss poor Bon Jovi rip off, 33 placing, Home...Rip BBMak. I still loves ya!

Popjustice newsletter recommends looking at this site and not thinking of BBmak... apparently he was in it or something...

Popjustice names the frankly fabulous XO blog of the week...

The frankly fabulous XO is off to see Madonna this very week - here is my fave Madge b-side from the Cherish single...

Metrosexuals are being replaced by retrosexuals? My buddy richard will be so annoyed...


And Ruthless! Buffy returns. All is ok in the world again...

Finally, I got two albums in the post today that i have wanted for ages and ages, etc. Boy duo Smash are from Russia and i can't remember which blog i read about them on, but it was a good one because there songs are amazing. I think they had a second album but did a 5ive and split up seconds after it was released. One of them is quite good looking and that one (Sergey something or the other) has released a debut album on his own. Without the Vlad one! Selfish! But i will forgive him as his album Don't Be Fake is very very wonderful and the song Fake totally made me want to skip around the room.

Away with work - back thurs. See you then gang :)

    Poor BBMak. THey were better than most and featured London in their videos.

    Did you also like the group that sang Faded? What were they called? Soul Decision? G MIchael ripoffs.
