Did you know there are some very amusing music blogs at Yahoo!? Me neither. It’s amazing how little repercussion they seem to have in overall music blogosphere, I am inclined to think. It’s a shame. I found at least two blogs worth RSS-ing. One is Chart Watch by Paul Grein (226 posts) and the other is Rock’s Backpages, from the eponimous website I previously posted about.
To clip a random highlight, I found this 33 year old interview with Kate Bush, it is one of the first posts of the blog.
SHOCKING UPDATE: Yahoo Rock’s Backpages has so far 4 subscribers in the Google Reader platform. This is sad.
This piece came on the back of a Melody Maker editorial conference, editor Ray Coleman at the helm, sarcastic bastards round the table, and me saying “But she’s gonna be huge!” “Wuthering Heights” was at No. 1 in the UK singles chart. The interview was the usual record company set-up, in the EMI Board Room. Bush seemed strangely unique for somebody that everybody perceived was the archetypal one-hit wonder. Anything but, as it turned out… Harry Doherty
