after mentions on this thread for Black (cf the RCR thread) and Swing Out Sister (cf the Yacht Rock thread), i reckon we should embark on a quest for the band that straddles the most genres.

Mark E - the Queen B song was "Red Top Hot Shot". Man, I loved that song. I was gonna mention them, but I couldn't decide whether to put it on Record Company Rock or this one. Criminally, it wasn't even a hit. The singer (Belinda?) ended up fronting a later line-up of Daisy Chainsaw.

Thank God for the Reid Brothers.

Is our own picture postcard rebellionist angry with me? Ooops.

Seriously I've never heard any of these bands (except H2O - I've got that single), but I really doubt I've missed out on much.

Fair do's.

I have a really low tolerance for shit (my definitions...as well you know) and really I am so grateful that my self imposed Indie as fuck ghetto stopped me hearing so much pish music during my teens, when my low-shit tolerance was fucking massive.

I mean, I've got VH1, I sometimes here these 'Thanks for the 80s' programmes, I know what this shit sounds like, I've no fondness for it.

Especially some bloke wearing FUNKY ASS hotpants.

VH1, ha ha.

They had it all - fame, fortune and a legion of fans, but as you'll discover now in Behind The Music, away from the platinum-selling success, theirs was a story of heartache, death and tragedy

Fair do's to VH1, they showed AC/DC live from Colchester Uni. '77 and some other reruns of Rock Goes To College.

mark e - cheers for that link, dude.

I've been trying to get a copy of '2000 Years of Trouble' on CD, but the ones on ebay always seem to go for ridiculous prices.

General, the thing is though the kind of pop this thread is about was originally an indiepop aesthetic too.

You know that i'm sure, but I just thought i'd re-state it, 'cause what I hate more than anything in the world is niche music.
