Pleased to see that Now 90s has appeared on Freeview as I find familiar music at breakfast time to be far more palatable than John Humphrys or Larry Laverene.
This mornings appearance of ‘Dizzy’ by Vic Reeves and The Wonder Stuff led me to reminisce about my uni days and how The Stuffies (as no-one ever called them) were a popular and credible band. These days: nothing. They are never played on the radio, never cited as an influence by acts, and whenever they are brought up in conversation with my music loving friends they respond with a ‘meh’. Even their reunion was greeted with the same enthusiasm as when one of your kids asks to watch My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic again (yes you do that sweetie, I’ll be over here scrubbing these crayon marks off the wall). I’d go as far to say their only contribution to modern day life is that Miles Hunt is a frequently used rhyming slang.
This is just a roundabout way of asking the blog who was popular and credible back in the day, but mean absolutely nowt today?
