Trail of Dead tour, The Strokes support and have a new single...

The Strokes, are five New Yorkers, and they've just sent a CD with a track called Barely Legal (on an EP called The Modern Age, out now on Rough Trade), that's got to be worth a news story, if only for getting this page in the "Billie Piper Naked" search engines...

They're playing one of the NME "Brats" shows, with ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead, and they're also supporting the 'Dead on tour - the only date confirmed so far is my old home venue Portsmouth Wedgewood Rooms, on the 31st of Jan... if that wasn't a Wednesday I'd be THERE.

I'm sure in the title of the TV show "Different" had an apostrophe in it, anyone know why?

Thanks to Anglo (http://www.angloplugging.co.uk) for this, they've sent it as a bribe, to ensure I don't mention Grand Theft Auto on the front page any more...

No, that's a lie.

The content here originally from my very popular (in the late '90s) website popex.com. Parts were written by other people, but mostly editorial originally created by me. I moved the content here here when the website eventually closed down in the early noughties. Hopefully this ignites memories if you read this.
