PopEx ≫ 2001 ≫ The WIAIWYA / Fortuna Pop Christmas Party

A lovely party and top xmas album... it's something to do this Friday!

Almost guaranteed more star studded than the premire of "Ali", and the smash hits christmas party combined...

Friday 14th December The Bull and Gate, Kentish Town, in that London. Admission 5. Doors 7:30 pm - late Plus mince pies, party paraphernalia, and DJ Paul from that Track and Field spinning Christmas hits past and present, and maybe even future


THE LOVES' live show is a full on rock 'n roll assault, with occasional drunken outbursts, a heady mix of 70s new wave stomp mashed with the Phil Spector wall of sound. John Peel loves them and, having already recorded two Peel sessions this year, they are also scheduled to play at Peel Acres on Valentine's Day 2002.

THE WOUND-BE-GOODS. The return of the legendary el records popstars with their beguiling, sophisticated pop. Now featuring Pete Momtchiloff (Tallulah Gosh, Heavenly, Marine Research) on guitar. New album 'Brief Lives' out on Fortuna POP! in 2002.

Plus Special Guest DARREN HANLON, he's Australian, you know, and we've flown him in from Sweden especially...

Also... wiaiwya has joined up with our American friends once more to bring you "50,000,000 elves fans can't be wrong", a transatlantic pop christmas, available in the uk by mail order only (10 (incl p+p and a free poster) payable to wiaiwya, from 1 bankside, 10 brock lane, maidenhead, berkshire, sl6 1lp, uk... order early to avoid disappointment, etc etc etc)... it includes all of the delights below, only in song form:
