Proactive Pop


The Beeb has a heartwarming story about a Sunderland band who decided to set up a record shop because there was increasingly no where else to sell their product.

“We’re a band with not much money… and we’ve put what money we have into this project just to show bands can take a stand,” …

“If we can do it on a street level, why can’t people further up in the music business be as proactive as us?

Er…because you clearly care about music. The Industry these days contains very few actual music lovers.

Forgive me for smiling about this comment of the redundancy of the former Sunderland tourist office…

 “There’s no call for it any more, for various reasons,”

Smack my wrists but that made me smile. Sorry.
