You know that feeling of unadulterated joy when you discover a great new band? I got that when I was turned on to the music of Be Bop Deluxe a few years ago. Even though I wasn’t even in preschool by the time they stopped recording, I feel like I’ve been listening to them my whole life. I’ll never understand how they didn’t hit it big back in the ’70s, but such is life.
So take a moment and check out my guide to Bill Nelson’s brainchild over on Popdose, and maybe you’ll feel the same way! And while you’re at it, check out this sweet live performance of “Fair Exchange” on Old Grey Whistle Test.
