5.0 out of 5 stars December 23rd, 2006. A tiny Bristol nightclub. Music with female vocals only., 10 Aug. 2010
This review is from: Phonogram Volume 2: The Singles Club (Phonogram: the Singles Club) (Paperback)
Reading "Phongram, the singles club" now (though written much closer to 2006) conjures the hyper nostalgia of the 21st Century, when the pop scene of only a few years ago is already something to look back on with misty-eyes. This is helped by the format - the weaving together of the various lives in one night out, which catches that odd feeling of excitement and melancholy that only fleeting exchanges on a booze-fueled night out in some tiny pop-shrine can produce.

Narrated by the tracklist of the night, or, as I imagine it would be called on CD release: "Now that's what I call music 2006 (but actually the really good pop releases of that year), with some important pop music history as put together by someone who takes pop music with the upmost seriousness it justly deserves". The odd bit of 90s pop minutiae will be welcomed by any 80s born child. You all knew media starlet Lauren Laverne once fronted mid-late nineties band Kenickie, right?

If that all that sounds awesome (it does, it is) then get this.

The "phonomancer" side of things (People who do majic things with music? No, me neither) is, thankfully, played down somewhat. The format is more than strong enough without it.
