Song of the day – 659: Talulah Gosh
I loved them because they understood that boy-boy rock and practising too much and acting all serious and sullen on stage was absolute rot.
Song of the day – 601: Heart Beach
Maybe that’s why I’m increasingly turning to Tasmania. I know what it’s like to be ignored.

Song of the day – 162: Dolly Mixture
