About the Author
Daniel Blythe was born in Maidstone in 1969. The first single he will admit to buying was Souvenir by OMD, although the first single he actually bought was Making Your Mind Up by Bucks Fizz. Daniel currently lives in Yorkshire with his wife and their small, noisy and loveable daughter. He can often be found wandering the hills of the Peak District, musing on such life-affirming questions as how Heaven 17 got their name, which was the best Transvision Vamp album and who was really the most fanciable one out of Bananarama. And he gets paid for this.
