Backlash edited by Simon Price, 9th December 1995

“Do you love anyone enough to give them your last Romo?”

Yes I’ve dusted off the scanner and once again sit scanning ephemeral pop trivia late into the night. There’s been too many requests in the intervening months for me to try and fulfil, this just caught my eye. Got love Pricey tearing Pearl to shreds, although I do quite like her Price Cube dig. Anyway…I guess this goes with this.

Oh and Andy Catlin got in touch. Go to his website to see nice pictures. http://andrewcatlin.com

Ian Watson quizes Supergrass, 2nd March 1996

Ian Watson quizzes Supergrass, 2nd March 1996.

It’s Wolverine, the wife swapper from Primrose Hill and the other one.

God this is so dull but then it’s probably not meant to be read by 38 year old men. The only piece of trivia to be gained from this is that Phil Jupitas used to be the warm-up man for The White Room and that Danny thinks “It’s quite a beautiful, fascinating thing watching a turd come out of someone’s arse”. And that, presumably, from the man when he hasn’t snorted a blizzard of cocaine. Man those parties with Sadie must have been positively Bacchanalian.

I’m sure Google’s going to make me regret typing that combination of words into the blog.

Radiohead live at the Oxford Apollo, 25th February 1995

David Bennun reviews Radiohead live at Oxford Apollo. Taken from Melody Maker, 25th February 1995

Love this photo. It’s basically Thom on his vinegar strokes isn’t it? Or maybe he’s just imagining making love to a beautiful women. If you’ve been paying attention you’ll remember that he’s never met a beautiful woman he’s liked.

Thinking of famous people having sex reminds me of this very funny blog – Filthy Fan Fiction – I’ve stumbled across recently. There’s not that much there yet but the Pauline Quirke set piece is a gem. I’m gonna write and request one for Thom Yorke.

Also justly forgotten trustafarians, Powder, live at the Dublin Castle reviewed by Jennifer Nine.

Powder are now best known for lead singer Pearl Lowe’s (along with husband Supergrass drummer, Danny Goffey) famous drug fuelled, wife swapping exploits with the ‘great and good’ of Primrose Hill. There’s a full article about it here if by some strange chance you’ve not heard about this before under the headline “Cocaine was served on trays, but you had to leave your soul at the door”. Nice.

I’ve skimmed through it so you don’t have to, and this [cough] pearl of a quote from Pearl caught my eye – “I think we were a bit before our time, and we got roped into Britpop when we were actually rock.”

No Pearl, you just weren’t very good.
