Subject: SLOW FIZZ - party in Manchester confirmed!

Dear Spectropoppers,

It's official - there's a party across the hall - in Manchester!

A night of girl group heaven!

Brit girls, American teen queens, female northern soul & more...

Saturday 9th November
Upstairs at The Waldorf
(next to the Malmaison Hotel)
12 Gore Street
8 PM - 02 AM (no entry after 11:30 PM)

All info and the flyer will be online soon via the Slow Fizz website.
Watch this space!

Your DJs (so far!):
Mick Patrick
Ian Chapman
Declan Allen
Elisabeth (me) & Tag

And featuring, like the London party, a live PA of a selection of 
60s songs performed by yours truly (better start practising again!)

IMPORTANT BIT: Spectropoppers will be welcomed free of charge but 
you must email me to get on the list. However, if you enjoy the 
evening pretty please make a small donation in Petula's Piggy Bank 
to help cover room hire costs.

Also, if you are based in Leeds, Liverpool etc. and can help by 
putting flyers in suitable record shops and that kind of thing, let 
me know and I'll be happy to send some on.

Hope to see lots of you there!

Elisabeth x

Are there any that specialize in the kind of music favored by this group? [Team note: Not exactly Real Audio, but why not take a listen to some of the 24-hour streaming radio stations playing just the kind of things discussed around here.] Spectropop One, hosted by Jack Madani: Spectropop GirlPop, hosted by Billy Spradlin: Treasure Island Oldies, hosted by Michael Godin: -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
Message: 3 Date: Sun, 15 Sep 2002 11:28:00 -0000 From: moepop Subject: Dumbhead [from the Spectropop Public Bulletin Board] Does anyone remember this?...Maybe 10 years ago I was watching the Letterman show and Paul Schafer would have the band play bits of tunes that had something to do with the next guest, or what Dave was saying, or whatever. Anyway, something caused Paul to lead the group to play something that sounded just like "Dumbhead". I was confused as heck thinking that I was the only cat on the planet hip to that great and very obscure single. So, Dave turns to Paul and says, "Paul, what was that?" And he said, "Oh, Just a little thing by Ginny Arnell". Crazy, what does the rest of Paul's record collection consist of? And speaking of "Dumbhead", if any of you Spectropoppers have grade school age boys and a copy of "Dumbhead", let them have a listen sometime. With the anti-girl sentiments and the "peanut for a brain" line they'll flip. My young-uns were rolling on the floor the first time they heard the disc and it is pretty much their all-time favorite single. So if whoever emailed Ginny does so again, they can let her know somewhere she is still on top of the charts! moepop -------------------[ archived by Spectropop ]-------------------
