Tomorrow, myself, Mrs DD, Goose and Corie are heading off to see the best pure-pop outfit currently making music, and that band is the fantastic, the awesome and the musically gorgeous Fountains of Wayne. They are playing at the Astoria and I'll hopefully be able to post a picture or two of them after the gig. Really looking forward to some good old fashioned British inspired power pop.
Best FoW track? So hard to decide. Little Red Light from Welcome Interstate Managers and Mexican Wine from the same era, as well as Radiation Vibe from their self-titled first album and Red Dragon Tattoo from Utopia Parkway...but then there's the downbeat and beautiful Troubled Times with its melancholic Wurlitzer electric piano... I just can't make up my mind!
